AN ENCHANTING & ENJOYABLE SHAPE-SHIFTING ADVENTURE
Phew, I'm exhausted after this listen about very primal alpha male shifters (check out the cover picture girls) and good/evil fae all battle it out ei..Show More »ther against each other or stand together as pack fight pack and fae fight fae. Along with this is the touching, gentle yet sizzling romance as Sean (the Guardian with a big magic sword - come on minds out of the gutter - literally a real sword again check out the cover pic) battles his mating urge to change a mating 'bond of convenience' with Andrea into a true love bond because they both feel the strong pull to mate as the attraction grows and heats between them. There were sex scenes but they weren't too graphic in any way.
It's been a long time since I listened to book 1 Pride Mates so I couldn't remember the storyline at all but this didn't much detract from my enjoyment of this listen so I guess it could be a stand alone listen. however, why deprive yourselves - if you haven't already downloaded the 1st book then I would start there, follow with this one, and sit back and savour an entertaining paranormal tale which, despite being a wee bit slow in parts, is an enjoyable listen. The shape shifting community is made up of warm, interesting and friendly characters that are ready to open their doors and let you see their lives, loves and world.
Can't wait for books 3 Wild Cat and 4 Mate Claimed which were both published in 2012 so come on Audible where are they ?? and they will be followed by book 5 Tiger Magic later this year.
Worth a credit? A good paranormal romance series to get your claws into which was definitely worth a credit so it's a YES from me.
You may gulp at the price for a 5 hr listen but if you're into the Shifters Unbound Series then this is a must have. I gave it only 3 stars purely be..Show More »cause of it's short length.
Elizabeth's got issues and problems but she's one lucky girl when Ronan comes roaring to her rescue.... and stays despite gang leaders and her past catching up with her and they all want her dead. Ronan's a sweetheart and is feeling the 'mating urge' but, with her causing him, and his fellow shifters, all sorts of grief things soon get out of hand - but thankfully the cute and cuddly Kodiak bear can look after her and thankfully himself too.
Sweet romance, not your usual 'Alpha' type, not sexy or hot but a tender, feel-good, teddybear love story about secrets and trust along with a few evil villainous characters thrown in. We also hear of further developments/insights into the world of the Shifters that's been created so well by JA.
Worth a credit? I'm a Shifters fan so of course I'm gonna say Yes.
I usually love these types of paranormal/romance books and also anything JA writes is an automatic download for me. But I'm so sorry to say that ther..Show More »e was just something about this listen that missed it's mark with me.
I don't know whether there's just too many sub plots going on at the same time as the main romance - yes there's a thread running between most of the plots but it just seemed a bit disjointed and didn't flow quite right. It had some great characters in it and it was action packed however, it seemed such a fractured story that it failed to make me care enough about any of it. Yes, there was a sweet romance going on between the two main characters - a cop and a were-cat, but even their sex scenes seemed more 'motion' than 'emotion' and, as a result, it failed to grab me.
Worth a credit. Well, if you've been happy with this series then I guess it's a must but this particular listen sadly just didn't really do it for me. However, I will download the next one in the hope of a more focused storyline.
You may say "outch" at the price for a 4h 30m listen but if you're a fan of the Shifters Unbound series please don't be put off as JA packs a hell of ..Show More »a lot into this short listen.
It's filled with drama, tension, fun, sexual chemistry, romance, heat and it's an emotional ride for Spike as we, the silent onlookers, bear witness to the many events that he has to deal with - joy at finding out he's a Father, tenderness as he learns to cope with an unruly 4 yr old cub, sadness at the loss of the cub's Mother, turmoil at claiming a mate that's not sure about her feelings, anger at events that unfolds (I'm not giving anything away) and eventually happiness as he finally finds love (oh all right I just did give a bit away - but you know how they always end anyway and we all want the HEA ending don't we).
Worth a credit? I didn't hesitate as I love the series and anything JA writes - so that's a YES from me.
Well, if you've listened to the rest of the series then you know what you're gonna get - were-shifter towns, their inhabitants, their problems and fit..Show More » bodied males (check out the cover girls - well if we have to dream let's dream big!!).
Right from Chapter 1 this draws you in as Eric (alpha were-snowleopard in his 'cat' form) stalks Iona (were-panther in her 'cat' form) through rugged terrain, finally catching and pouncing on her. She is an unclaimed and unmated female who's releasing some strong 'come and get me boys' pheromones and he's picked up her delicious scent and is only too happy to oblige..... but she is fighting her feline frenzy questioning who and what she is. There's a lot of sexual and physical attraction so Eric has to wait to claim her - but can he do it before other wereshifters pick up her enticing scent.
Interesting likeable characters along with some not so nice wolf shifters who become involved in a great storyline that has many subplots - namely; turf war, Alpha dominance, kidnapping (or should I say cubnapping), genetic engineering and, of course, the sexy, lustful romance between Eric and Iona.
Worth a credit? This was a very enjoyable and entertaining paranormal listen so that would make it a undeniable YES to the book and, if you haven't already listened to the others in the series (and you like the genre), then it's a YES x 4 to the whole series. So, do yourselves a favour and download them all - however, this could have been a stand-alone listen but hey life's short why deprive yourselves - download them all then give the tv remote to your husband, order in, get a babysitter (if needed), turn your phone off then my friends..... just sit back and ENJOY.
Jennifer Ashley's Shifter's Unbound books just keep getting better and better and this one's the best so far showing that she has earned her status of..Show More » being an auto download for me.
If you've listened to the other's in the series then you know what you're going to get - an action packed, shapeshifting paranormal tender romance with characters you can sympathise with, feel for, be happy for them and generally join in as their lives are challenged as they each fight for survival.
Tiger and Carly's story will delight you, anger you, sadden you but most of all it will entertain you for the full 10hrs 13 mins. I must mention Cris Dukehart who does an excellent job narrating this listen and skilfully breathes life into each of the characters.
Worth a credit? A handsome, mentally damaged and tortured Tiger shifter finds, claims and is obsessed with his mate and goes through hell to do it- delicious for any paranormal romance fan - so that folks isn't just a YES it's also a MUST HAVE series.
