Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her wolf pack, but the petite redhead refuses to let an Alpha male interfere in her life. Furious and humiliated after her mate refused to claim her, she runs off to hide among the humans. Why wait around for an Alpha male to love her when he’d obviously prefer to ignore her?
Nick Axton can barely control his urges for Shaya, but the Alpha can never claim her — not if he truly cares for her. His degenerative brain condition will eventually destroy him, and he’s afraid of turning his mate into his caretaker. Yet when Shaya runs away, Nick can’t let her go. He pursues her, vowing to finally claim his rightful mate. And despite Shaya’s spirited and passionate resistance, Nick’s fiery determination just might be the ultimate aphrodisiac.

This series immerses you into a fabulous shifter world, and doesn't disappoint through character development, action, sex and romance. Each book sucks you further in. I have listened to them all multiple times, and at each end I can't wait for the next story.
Interesting book. It gets better as it goes. The beginning with her prolonged resistance gets a little old but once she commits, the story picks up in intensity. Most of these pack books have a similar theme of true mates finding each other and then biting the hell out of each other during sex. I guess that's good for shifters. It doesn't sound too appealing as a rule. The chemistry was good and we get a second pack for future books
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
Ok The stories from this series have confused my little brain. They are all good stories but, keeping what story line goes with what book is hard. I apologized!! This story is about Shya & Nick working through their problems of being "True Mates". And Nick trying to prove himself to her. Also problems of with rogue shifters & prejudice from human extremist.Along with betrayal for other shifters working on their own agenda. This seems to be the same story lines through out the series. However, the snarkie dialogue between the characters and conflict scenes are well written. And the detail sex scenes consistant. Even mention of other paranormals such as sirens, healers and others lend to the idea of spin off stories later on for future books. I stll think each of these stories are worth the credit & price.. Totally entertaining for long drives
YES ! ! ! This series just gets better and better with every book.
When Nick tried to walk away and Shaya walked in and claimed him first. That scene had my heart going out to both of them.
Nick meeting Shaya parents. Awesome ! !
There was no one moment....the whole book was moving.
AWESOME JOB ! ! Love this series.
Enjoyed the whole series. If you like wolves don't miss this one. Jill redfield is one of the best narrators out there, made a good series come to life.
I was on the fence ion getting this one due to some if the other reviews, but I am so glade I did. I loved the struggle and the outcome of the book.
Half-human, half-shifter Shaya Critchley may seem like a submissive in her wolf pack but a wimp she is not. When her mate, Nick Axton whom she knew the minute laid eyes on one another who happened to be an ALPHA wolf refused to claim her, yet couldn’t stop interfering in her life, she knew she had to get away. Shaya took off hiding and posing as a human in a town full of extremists groups who were totally anti-shifters. Shaya never expected Nick Axton to show up looking for her, but lo and behold here he was. Even though he had health reasons for not claiming her, he just couldn’t let her think he didn’t care for her and he can’t bear the thought of never seeing her again. While extremists, rogue wolves, and other packs start sniffing him out - Nick knows a battle is brewing and he certainly can’t leave Shaya on her own, no matter how capable she seem to feel that no one would suspect her as a shifter.
I was totally entranced with this series from from the beginning, especially the introduction of Trey and Taryn - one very wise-cracking and hilarious heroine staring in Book One - FERAL SINS. And even as things seemed to get more and more sexy and erotic well I just chalked it up to using fillers to make up page counts. But actually, after awhile, the angst of - she protests too much - and Nick trying to make Shaya realize how important she truly was to him just tipped the scale for me into a ‘give him a break moment’ where I wanted to shake some sense into her.
Bottom line: I really enjoy the concept of shifters in my paranormal world, but I rather like more substance and story than so much blow-by-blow descriptions of the act. The one redeeming quality I truly appreciated was Nick and Shaya blowing open and stopping the extremists of torturing the unsuspecting shifters who were forced into unspeakable horrors. Not bad - just not great.
