If you know me you to know that science-fiction and fantasy are my bread-and-butter. You also know that I am in avid fan of Octavia Butler‘s work. Lilith’s brood was the first introduction to the world of science fiction when it featured people of color in the realities of our diverse world. In parable of the sower The readers challenge two a new perspective of who or rather what God is in a world where the government is more of a name then a governing body. Climate change is morphed of the landscape of California as we know it today into a nightmare-ish hell scape that we are fast seeing it become. Or heroin is faced with her parents old ideas that the good all days will return in order will resume or the new definition of God that she has come to realize will help save our lives and hopefully that of others who would follow her. The first time I started this I put it down, not because it wasn’t excellently written but I just found the read too challenging to wrap around my mind. But listening to it on audible gave me a chance to read through the parts that were too uncomfortable to confront if I could willingly put it down. I can’t wait to read the parable of talents.

The thing that I love about Zena’s true mate series is that they are all amazingly different. For Carol’s mate, we get to see a shifter female being perused by a human male. The hero at times seems a little too much like a stalker or possessive in his regard for her but the story and their relationship explained this very well as you listen on. By the end you get to see a man who put his player ways behind him and do everything in his power to show the woman he loves that he can’t live without her by learning to live with her and her beast.

The narrator did some great work with the voices. The male characters all have distinct mannerisms and the ladies aren’t bad either. There were a few parts were it got choppy in editing and where it sounds like she’s recording in a room that echos her voice or someone is talking in the background but this happened no more than three times.

Love the growth of the hero, the family the heroine makes for herself and the portrayal of shifters here by Ms.Wynn. She has created a fascinating world that keeps me coming back for more!

What did you love best about Reclaiming Angelica?

The story had lots of points where I didn't see things coming and juicy little plot twists that I was so happy to read this. I thought Zena Wynn's True Mate series was awesome but this Lycan series is wickedly hot. There was drama in the beginning that I wasn't expecting but it really enriched the romance in a way that I loved.

What other book might you compare Reclaiming Angelica to and why?

I dunno...but if you like this romance and Zena Wynn's work, you might be interested in Nikoli's wolf

Which character – as performed by Meghan Kelly – was your favorite?

Angel was great, Meghan brought her to life in this story! I loved it so much that I'd be interested in listening to other books she read. It's already hard to bring the story to life but to perform an erotic romance the way she did was amazing.

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

You can keep secrets but everything comes to the light.

First of all the story is ridiculously good. I didn’t expect it and when I started to hear more of the main characters woes I saw a lot of my own flaws and insecurities and desires being smacked into my face. No one can live up to the sparkling picture the authors paint when it comes to the Dream hero least of all our spouses. what I love about this book is it highlights the fact that the perfect person for you isn’t perfect what we think we want isn’t necessarily what we actually need.

I thought the reader was phenomenal and I listen to it all in one sitting to the point that I was molding around my day and chores just so I could be able to finish it all in one go. She had a perfect sexy voice for the right parts in places and her heroes boys was very gruff and masculine.

I’ll be honest and say that I wasn’t really into audible books but after this one I think I could get into it.

I’m an avid reader of Zena Wynn’s work and jumped at the opportunity to listen one of her works that I hadn’t read before.

I’ll try not to spoil but I want to give my for an honest review. This wouldn’t be a book I would typically pick for myself. I don’t have many pet peeves but one in particular is infidelity and cheaters. So the story had me going back-and-forth between will they, won’t they, can they, will she drama. I try to put my own reservations aside and was happy, well actually super happy with the ending.

The scenes were hot and easy to let your imagination wander over the imagery of it. The main characters had chemistry that you didn’t want them having but kept you reading just to see what happened.

The narrator was very clear and had moments where I thought she was perfect. That being said some of the scenes felt stilted from her syncopation or A bit awkward when things were getting steamy. Once you were fully engaged in the scene however things even that out and you were able to ignore her pacing and dive back into the story.

I’d be willing to listen to her again because I felt her overall performance was good and not so awkward that it would take me out of the story too much. As for Zena, I’ll definitely read more as she makes topics they feel so uncomfortable for me engaging, thrilling and compelling.
