Cole McDermott is a jaguar on a mission. Long naps, a willing woman, and a full stomach is usually all he needs when it comes to relaxing after a long day of protecting his pack.

Brynn Brentwood has spent the whole of her life protecting the Talon Pack through terrors only she will ever know. She's never asked for more in life other than to live to take her next breath and to ensure her family is safe. Regardless of her selfless wishes and the atrocities the former Alpha committed, she has always known that fate would provide for her as it had countless others. Fate is what has carried her through with one exception - upon meeting the one wolf who could be hers, he doesn't feel their bond.

Balin Drake is stuck in hell, literally. His life of refusing to take souls, even though it's part of his demon nature, has caught up with him. He's dying and now must search for his true half, but even a mate may not save him. When he meets the two people who could fill that part, he'll need to fight for something he hasn't felt in over a century: hope.

So I got this as a arc for my honest opinion. You guys have got to get this book. Jamie and her friends all got struck my lighting inside of a bar one night and now when they meet there other halves the change into something else. For Jamie life sucks her mate Ambrose doesn't want her, then she get kidnapped, ends up in hell. While Ambrose is on his way to save her so is someone else Balin. She Ambrose is a old angel, Balin is a demon who only has a small window to take someone's soul, if he doesn't he dies. Once Balin and Ambrose get near Jamie they realize that they aRe a triad. While trying to leave hell they mate now jamies a qjinn. That's the easy part lol. This book has it all sex, alpha's magic,dead guys, wishes and sex,
Carrie Ann Ryan does it again with her amazing book.

Decker Kenrick knows it's wrong to have feelings for his best friend's little sister, but that doesn't stop his thoughts from going down that path. No matter how hard he's tried to stay away from Miranda, once she gets her sights on him, there's no backing down. Miranda Montgomery might be the youngest of the Montgomery clan, but that doesn't means she doesn't know what she wants. Namely, Decker. She's loved him for as long as she can remember and won't walk away until she gives it her all

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would and I have. I love the storyline and the romance between Callie and Morgan. She's a laid back tattoo artist and he is the older guy with old money.

What did you like best about this story?

The difference between the main characters and how the both had to grow and change to make things work for them.

In this book it's Morgan. Once he figures out what Callie means to him, the love he gives her is awesome.

This book is so damn good, you can't help but fall for Morgan and Callie's story. So you take one kick ass story then add in the sexy voice of Gregory Salinas and you have a 100000 star audio/ book

On the wrong side of 30, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.

Sierra Elder just moved to the area in the hopes of opening her own business. she has had some really bad stuff happen to her in the past that left not only mental scars but physical scars too. in the hopes of moving on she decides she wants a tattoo to cover the scars, but when she goes into Montgomery Ink she wants in the middle of Austin treating a woman like crap well that's what she thought. Austin sees her and knows he wants more. but can she move on. add in the fact that out of nowhere Levi, Austin ' son shows up out of the air. one he didn't know he had. this is truly one of the most heart breaking, heart warming books I have ever heard. my god Gregory Salinas just pulls you in and makes you feel all there pain and love.

I live this book. Sassy Bordeaux is a strong willed independent woman who is the "mother hen" of Midnight Inc. All she wants is for the people she loves to be happy and have the one thing she lost love. Years ago when Sassy was younger she was in love with her two guys. yes I said two ( how hot is that ) Rafe Chavez and Ian Steele. Sadly as young people do the messed it up and lost it all. Now years later Rafe and Ian are back for her and are willing to fight for her this time around. The question is , is it to late? ??
This is by far one of the best series with tattoos parlors in it I have ever read or heard. It's because of this story I found a whole new world I like to read about. I never knew books with two men and one woman excited until this book. Omg is it good.
Gregory Salinas has a voice to dir for, he pulls you into the story in a whole new way. I loved ever second of this audio.

I love the action, the passion and the craziness that is the Talon Pack. This book has it all. If you want a book you can't put down well this is it. Once again Carrie Ann Ryan nails it. This is a 5 star all the way book and audio. For the audio side Gregory Salinas has an amazing voice. This guy could read a dictionary and make it sound good. His voice pulls you into the story in a whole different way. You get chills and goosebumps when you listen to this book. Way to go Gregory Salinas you rock.
