If Katherine thought that her life would get any easier in the months following her realization that Bastian was her mate, she was wrong. But dealing with the man's hot and cold behavior - it was like he had two times of the month - and surviving the Recruiting Rites were pieces of cake compared to the fierce emotional storm that envelops her when a secret is revealed, turning everything Katherine thought she knew on its head.

Shy to me was a good listen. I was a little board at times then entertained at others. But I do feel that the first one was a little bit better. I did like that a few of the loose ends that remained in the first book were tied up hear (which I am greatful for).

Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she'd ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf - a werewolf who has bitten her. Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids - certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with.

I loved this book. Reading some of the reviews make you think the narrator isn't that good or the story is too simple and played out, but it's not. its something you can listen to in the background and still like and engage in. The main characters are cute. Katherine does get on my nerves sometimes with her attitude and her "I'll show him" type of attitude, but it just gives her that type of fire that I like in my female characters. Will definitely read again.

At first the story seems a little bit boring and confusing with all the different narrator's talking. I'm normally not a huge fan of multiple people talking in a story, but as the story progresses it all blends together and works. I love this different reality and the diffent types of others. The narrator her self made this book come alive and also made the story flow together for me. I will definitely be reading the other books and hope they keep captivating and entertaining me the way this one has.

I couldn't stop listening to this beautiful and tragic story. Seeing how much pain and suffering this poor little girl had to go thought because of her mother and stepfather enraged me. But otieno brought tears to my eyes with his love for her. It puts you through ups and downs but you just want to stay their with the character's.

This book was spectacular. the narration was clear and very well versed and every part of the story was brought to life. Every few chapters or so I got a little bit board, but the last few chapters really brought it home and made it excellent.
