Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Lust and laughter a perfect combination"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I recommend them to all my friends with a god sense of humor and open mind. They are always entertaining and make me laugh out loud.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    She handles the often racy bordering on raunchy material with flare and humor.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Resistance is futile


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series as a whole. Lust and laughter together with the supernatural is a sinfully delightful combination.

    "Third in the series, I'll buy number four"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would only recommend to my friends that like action, a little mystery and HOT sex. Closed mined are not allowed!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The feisty, independent heroine.


    What does Jill Redfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Enthralled listening especially evening or bedtime, just to lose oneself after days from hell.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    As always, when the in love twosome finally glimpse their HEA.


    Any additional comments?

    Third in the series without any loss of steam and no boring repeater plots.

    "GREAT STORY!"
    What made the experience of listening to Carnal Secrets the most enjoyable?

    I liked the differenct nuances about each character. Each were distinctly different and the narrator did a great job reading the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Shi - she is independent yet submissive enough to go along with the character's personality without being wimpy.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Redfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I thoroughly enjoy Jill Redfield's narration.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    2 lovers meant to be


    Any additional comments?

    Overall a really good story line, narration, and the length was just right!

    "Not as good as the first two"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the series, but this one seemed to take awhile to get going. The first half of the book was Nick groveling and Shaya being insecure. The second half was much better though. I would still recommend it.

    "Nick’s Redemption; Shaya's Triumph!"

    I swear, this series just keeps getting better and better. I can honestly say that I can’t wait to listen to this story again and again. I’m glad there is finally closure regarding the angst between Nick and Shaya. Although we love to hate her, I think we would all miss Greta if she didn’t make a cameo in each storyline.

    Suzanne Wright, as usual, does an excellent job at giving each character’s personality depth. In turn, Jill Redfield brings the stories to life. Dare we hope for spin off stories from Nick’s new pack? One can only hope.

    Again, I’m eagerly anticipating the next installment.

    Story
    "Whew! I feel, I feel, I feel! Girly Book alert!"

    This book reads like Suzanne Wright was either very rushed or just filling space to fill hours. The constant wordy rehashing of "how you made me feel, you didn't claim me, I did it for you, I'll never leave you, I'm lost without you" dribble got to be so-o annoying! I felt like I was being nagged at or in a therapy session throughout the whole book. These same basic sentences were repeated in so many different environments that several times I found myself rolling my eyes upward in exasperation. A couple times I even found myself saying in my head, "Alright! I heard you the first time!" I literally sighed in relief when the book was over! No kidding, I Really, did!

    The story is just okay, strong wolf/boy meets pretty wolf/girl, boy forsakes girl, girl gets a life, boy wants her now, girl in danger, boy saves girl, yada yada, and the ride begins. For the first time I think I can honestly say, here is a book with just too much sex! By the last two encounters, I was so over the domination submission stuff, that I was just simply bored. Frankly, there is about an hour or two of those rehashed repeated lines, and a couple sexual encounters that could easily be eliminated, to make this book a joy to listen to. I can't believe I'm going to say this, because I am not a fan of them, but I think an - abridged version of this book would be better.

    I do hope SW's next installment on this series will be better and reflect that her head is back " In the writing game!" Because if the next book is similar to this, I'm afraid I will be forced to end my fascination with her series.
    Some of the other paranormal authors I like are: Kresley Cole, Jim Butcher, Jeanine Frost, JR Ward, Colleen Callahan, Kevin Hearne, Laura Wright, and Molly Harper.

    I do recommend this book with reservations, only because it is a part of the Phoenix Pack series, and characters in each book build upon one another.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Fantastic Installment To The Series"

    Once again, Suzanne Wright has left my tail wagging and my heart racing with this third installment of the addicting and thrilling Phoenix Pack series! Carnal Secrets brings us Nick and Shaya's story, and fans of the series will know right from the start that this was going to be full of angst thanks to their situation. I was so angry with Nick when he was putting Shaya through the pain of not claiming her as his mate in Wicked Cravings, and I couldn't wait to get the story behind his choice and see just how much he was suffering along with her. She left her pack behind, shattered and feeling lost to the world, in an attempt to escape from the constant pain of seeing Nick act like she meant nothing. But little did she know, her leaving was exactly the kick in the tail the Alpha needed to make his wolf more than ready to stake his claim!!


    One of the things I love most about the world and characters Suzanne Wright has created for this series is how she gives the wolves their own minds and own personalities through the thoughts of the shifters. The human vs. animal instinct that they deal with constantly makes them such dynamic and exciting characters, and I LOVED Nick's wolf just as much as I loved him! They were both at odds with Nick not claiming Shaya, but when he finally went after her...daaaayam, Nick was just as animalistic and commanding (maybe even more so) than Trey and Dante had been with their mates!! And submissive Shaya was right there with him, putting her mark on her man and proving that she was no one's bitch but his! And of course we get more of our favorite pack mates from the Phoenix Pack this time around too, and they were just as much fun and excitement as ever! They are fiercely protective of their own, and the shifters faced a threat to the safety of all of their kind this time around. When it came time to stand up for what was theirs, these wolves were once again a force to be reckoned with!

    Shaya and Nick's bumpy road to happiness gives paranormal romance fans everything they love and then some. I had no doubt that when I finished this read I was going to yet again be left itching to get my hands on the next installment (I never claimed to be a patient reader!), and that is absolutely the case! I hated to leave the thrilling world of the Phoenix Pack and their fellow shifters, and I can't wait to see who's story we get next. If you haven't started this series yet, my only response is WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!

    Jill Redfield as always was fantastic with the delivery of the story. At $7.34 the book is a bargain.

    "Same story...only the names have changed!"

    Jill Redfield got me through this listen. This series has lost it's zip for me. The story is dull and the ending is the same....This series is on hold for me right now.

    "Different but not really my cup of tea..."

    I really appreciate that Wright has been really creative in this series. Each of the three books to date has had similarities, but they had unique story lines. That said, I didn't really enjoy this one. Feral Sins was pretty light hearted and funny and Carnal Secrets was to some extent too. This one kind of got political, with extremist bigots, and I didn't enjoy it. On top of that, there was an alpha male who was kind of a sissy. I mean he was a tough guy in terms of threatening people and fighting but he was constantly talking about his feelings and it got repetitive and boring. This is also the second book with backstabbing, neurotic female characters who won't give up on trying to get their male despite their "true mate" being another female. Frankly, it makes it hard to believe the pull of the supposed true mate bond when there are constantly challenges to it. I had a hard time making sense of the whole true mate concept because of it. And why do the females always have to be catty?

    If there is a book 4 to the series, then I will probably decide whether to continue based on that. I don't think I could take more petty jealous female characters or political plots.
