Matthew Bruner is a bear shifter destined for greatness. Or so that's what he's always been told. As the next in line to become alpha of his clan, Matthew's days of singlehood are drawing to a close. Long since committed to a prearranged mating, Matthew finds himself feeling trapped and, worse, afraid. In a desperate attempt to prolong his freedom, Matthew flees his family's ancestral home and heads to the nearest city. It's there that he meets Ezra Tier, a tiger shifter with a bad streak the size of a mountain.

Did Striped and Bear: M/M Gay Shifter Mpreg Romance inspire you to do anything?

I brought this series based on customer review.Waste of money-it was a mistake.This is why it is important that all us readers write a review even a few words makes all the difference. Simply because the majority of reviews WILL pick up the fact that the book is rubbish.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book to a friend but NOT the audible version. I gave up listening and just read the book!

What other book might you compare Strange Bedfellows to and why?

I cant think of any books with a similar story line to compare this one .

What didn’t you like about Ron Herczig’s performance?

The narrator read the first 3 chapters(that is all I could stand to listen to) in what sounded like his "bedroom voice". Its was low and sultry even when the MCs where arguing!! I also feel that the tone of voice hardly changed and made the listen very boring.

Did Strange Bedfellows inspire you to do anything?

The book reminded me why I like reading this author's books. For me Cardeno C is an auto buy

Any additional comments?

I believe in giving people a chance but I think we best stick with Greg Tremblay or Renard Pasquale :)

What made the experience of listening to After the Sunset the most enjoyable?

Timing and After the sunset are in my top 10 favourite MM and Mary Calmes books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Stephan of course, he is like a smarter version of Jory :)

Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favorite?

Rand, I just love that voice.

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

Butch Texans can also be gay

Any additional comments?

I gave the narrator a 4 because he didn't really have a grasp on a distinct voice for some of the other characters...like Ryland.I really got confused at the Rodeo- trying to figure out who said what, because the voices where too similar.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this audio book.Narration was not good and the story was pretty lame.

Has Mating Thomas turned you off from other books in this genre?

This book does not impact on my love of M/M books

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jordan Taylor?

all my favoite narrators are too talented to be wasted on a book like this

Did Mating Thomas inspire you to do anything?
