Publisher's Summary

For the last several years, Brayden felt like an outcast amongst his friends. Since the day he saw a man shift into a wolf, he knew he no longer belonged in their circle. They were immersed in the paranormal world while he was away at college, living the life of an ordinary human.

One night, while he was walking home, he saw a dog in need of help. Turns out, it wasn’t a dog at all.

Kandra was a wolf shifter on the run. She’d fled an abusive relationship, running from a male she once thought she could trust. As a lone wolf, she was free, but she was also slowly dying.

Pack life wasn’t something Kandra wanted, and she never thought she’d trust another male. Yet, she trusted Brayden. In him, she found the opportunity to join a new pack - shifters who would be there when she needed them.

But the past came calling, and they would take back what was theirs. 

Kandra’s life was in danger, and Brayden would do whatever it took to keep his mate safe, including asking a vampire to bite him. His new life was extraordinary, because she was in it. 

With his vampire-given powers, Brayden was ready to fight for the one he loved. Now, all he had to do was find her.

Oh Brayden!

In high school, Brayden was the third wheel with Ari and Paige and was madly in love with Paige, who did not feel the same way. Fast forward, Ari has Orion, and Paige has Wake, and both are apart of the paranormal world, leaving Brayden to once again, be the outsider. We get to journey with Brayden as he navigates his way through the paranormal universe, meeting his mate, Kandra, in the process. Kandra has a troubled past and has a hard time trusting people, especially men. Being in a pack has not been kind to Kandra.

One evening, Brayden encounters an attack and comes to the rescue. It completely endeared him to me. In previous books, I thought he was annoying, but getting his perspective completely changed how I view him. I enjoyed everything about this book. I read this book in one sitting because I needed to know what happens next, but there was one scene I wished was fleshed a bit more. You get more of your favorite characters and a revelation! There were a few moments where Ari annoyed me, but I love her dearly! I need the next book tomorrow!

I loved it!

Brayden's Return is another great story in the Paranormals of Avynwood Series, an amazing paranormal romance. I love these Series with intertwined characters! Brayden and Kandra's story is beautiful. They are both great and beautiful characters. They are perfect together. Troy Duran and Sarah L. Colton did an amazing job with the narration. I love this Series. Michelle Dare never disappoints. I highly recommend it!

Good paranormal story with light and dark moments

First off, listened to the story on Audible. Both narrators do a great job. The female narrator did an excellent job of showing the emotion in her voice, and the male narrator had a good voice that fits Brayden really well. Definitely recommended for listening.

Interesting paranormal story. I’ve only read Kylest’s story so far in this series and really enjoyed it. There are some past characters in this book, but for the most part this story works as a stand-alone. I enjoyed Brayden’s story too. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series; well, maybe not Solomon’s book; he seems too pervy to me and kind of annoyed me in this book, so I’m thinking I may not enjoy a full book with him. The other characters seemed interesting through. One other thing that bothered me was the “jokes” about wanting to get others into bed when they are already mated. Also, does everyone have to seem bisexual; it was just weird for so many of them to be bi-curious. They don’t act on it, but numerous characters mentioned how attracted they were to members of the opposite sex; these are mated characters, so I wasn’t into it. Plus, there was a weird scene at the end with a whole bunch of them in a bed together with nudity and everyone wasn’t into it, so it felt like sexual assault. Another reason I’m not into Solomon’s book. I really liked the 2 I read so far though, so I’ll probably continue with the series.

Brayden was wonderful, and a total sweetie with Kandra. He’s a human while Kandra is a wolf shifter, but Brayden already knows about paranormals because his good friends are involved in the paranormal world. Kandra is on the run from a very horrible pack that raped and beat her repeatedly. Luckily, Brayden helps her out, but she has a long way to go before she can heal. She’s a likable character, but I was disappointed that she didn’t want those who saved her to take down the pack that continues to abuse and imprison people. Disappointed that she wouldn’t help the others in desperate need. I do wish that Kandra would’ve had more strength to save herself when she needed too, but she shows strength in other aspects. The romance is really sweet; Brayden and Kandra are a good match.

Overall, the whole story was entertaining, and the writing is pretty good. Just those few weird things kept it from being a 5 star; still a good read though.

Brayden’s Return

Brayden finally gets to find his mate and no longer feel as if he doesn’t belong. With that we also have Candy who finds a loving family and so many who will have her back when needed. I really enjoyed this book and all the fun loving characters. A perfect addition to this series.

I love the Avynwood Pack!!

Brayden finds a wolf that is being abused and takes her home to feed and get her warm. He doesn’t understand why he feel so much for her.

Kandra has been abused by another pack. Connor and Price have worked together and kept her captive. When she finally escapes... it’s only to be abused by humans who think she’s a dog.

I love the Avenwood series!!! Michelle Dare has created such an amazing paranormal world and group of characters that I have so fallen in love with!!! This one is another that I did not want to stop listening to. I’m anxious for the next book!!

Sarah L Colton and Troy Duran are these characters! They are perfect for these characters and I love their voices.

Paranormals Of Avynwood!

Brayden's Return (Paranormals of Avynwood, Book 5) is absolutely loved & cherished. Brayden and Kendra's fantasy is intoxicating and beautiful. Such a fun listen with wolf shifters, vampires and humans. Paranormals of Avynwood are some of my favourite paranormal characters and im looking forward to listening to more books about them. I cannot get enough of these characters and their stories as I could listen about them daily. I love each Book in this series the same.


Narators Troy Duran, Sarah L. Colton continue to bring thrilling moments with their dual narration. I love these two narrating the series as they are talented and connect together flawlessly.

Highly entertaining listen.

Brayden and Kandra

Although Brayden is very close to the members of the Avynwood Pack he also feels like an outsider as not only does he attend college away from everyone, but he doesn’t have any of the gifts that the other members do. What starts out as a desire to help an injured dog takes a turn when he actually rescued Kandra, a wolf shifter.

Kandra had experienced being part of a pack and all it brought was pain and abuse so she is not only cautious about the men in the pack but the pack itself. As she and Brayden spend time together they realize that they are mates but her past is not about to just let her go.

Although Brayden feels like he is lacking he couldn’t have been a better match for Kandra as he will do anything to keep her safe while Kandra shows him that all she needs is him. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrators were the perfect choice for both of these characters.

I can’t get enough of this pack!

What is not to like about this book! It has everything needed to make a nicely rounded story! The fun, the shifters, the vampires, the laughter, the evil and the mate bond. I really love these stories. This pack and their friends are so much fun to read/listen. The main story is tragic up to a point. Luckily for us than means we get to see the Avynwood crew.

Seriously I love every story but the time spent in the pack or with the vamps is usually my favorite. The relationships they have make me laugh. They are brotherly and sisterly which means fighting and pranking each other. We get to know Titus a bit more in this book and see the pack side come out in him as well. When him and Aiden fight in the living room? It’s hilarious what they are actually scuffling over. Then there is the whole sharing a bed thing (once you’re pack)at the end still makes me laugh EVERY time I listen to it! They are gonna need bigger beds in that pack house :-D

I did listen to this on audio. Troy Duran and Sarah L. Colton are the best at this series. I will forever hear Troy being Solomon and Ford in my head!

Great Paranormal Read

I was lucky enough to be introduced to this series by winning the audible book. I’m a fan of paranormal and instantly was drawn into this story. I can’t wait to dive into all the other books!
The narrators did a good job and I liked how they told the story.

Can’t get enough

Where to start?? I loved this book. The whole paranormal world that Michelle has built is amazing. Brayden has always been one of my favourite characters but has kept quiet, until now. Kandi is perfect for Bray, she has so much heartache in her past that Bray can fix for her. I love that Sol can still make a serious situation lighthearted and fun. Keep these characters alive Michelle, I need them all.....brilliant performance from both narrators.

In a world of paranormals...

Brayden is human. A college students whose closest friends are paranormals. He rescues a dog from harm. That fateful night brought his mate to his doorstep. Kandra is a wolf, who has suffered in the hands of her Alpha. A twisted tale with a happily ever after. I love all the characters, so loyal and sexy. And the MCs, take their time but their bond and chemistry are strong. The narrators bring life to these characters and do it very well.

Easy recommendation

I loved everything about this audiobook. I haven't listened to any of the others in the series but it was a great stand alone (which was that good I want to go and listen to the others now)
Troy Duran and Sarah L. Colton narrate fantastically as in the others I have heard from them (Troys awesomely deep manly voice doesn't hurt either :)

Brayden and Candy 🥰

YAY! Finally Brayden has become an "official" member of the Avynwood Pack!
I honestly adore this paranormals, each book it's so good and so is this one, it didn't disappoint me in the slightest.
Brayden and Candy were truly meant to be together. I love the way Brayden is with her, and how he cares about her. I loved every part of this book.

And, Solomon! Please, he deserves a special mention here, because even though he can be pretty infuriating, he makes the story much more entertaining.

The narration was fenomenal as can be expected with Troy Duran and Sahra L.
Colton as narrators.

Another great listen!

I was really looking forward to listening to Brayden's Return after previously enjoying Solomon's Surrender. Brayden's Return had an equally great plot and again held my interest throughout.

The narration was again an enticing listen by the very talented Troy Duran, Sarah L. Colton .. Troy and Sarah delivered on characterisation and really brought this story to life.

Amazing!

Brayden has always felt like an outcast among his friends. He is the only human in the midst of paranormals. While he adores each of them and is close with many of them, he still feels awkward and out of place when he's with him. Things change for him drastically when he witnesses what he thinks is a dog getting attacked. It turns out it was a shifter named Kandra getting attacked. Kandra has been through more than anybody should. She finds it hard to trust anybody fearing their true intentions. Her instincts tell her that she can trust Brayden. That he might be her mate. I really loved this book! It was as fast paced as the rest of the series. Not to mention the witty banter. I would have liked to see Solomon a bit more in this book, but I'll probably say that in every book. I love Solomon. He's my favorite male character. Ari is my favorite female character. But I digress. I really felt for Kandra. She had been through so much. I'm glad that Brayden found her. I think things would have been different had anybody else found her. There's not really anything that I can think of on the top of my head that I didn't like about this book. There was a reference in the book that I was kind of annoyed with until the end where it became a key factor. I thought the author just kind of through a meaningless nugget of information until it was referenced again. I do think that if it was a bit of an important piece that more information should have been sprinkled into the story. Not a lot. Just maybe a reference or two more here or there. This book was narrated by Troy Duran and Sarah L. Colton. They narrated the rest of the series as well. They did a fantastic job. If I'm being honest, I think they make the story even more appealing to me. Especially Duran's version of Solomon. I think it adds a lot more allure to Solomon than is already there. Yes, I'm aware I have a big bias on Solomon. I can't help it. But I digress. Again. I have listened to other books by Sarah L. Colton. I would definitely be willing to listen to others by her and Troy Duran. This is the fifth book in a series. They can technically be read as standalones. I encourage anybody to read them all. They don't have to be read in order, but they are all very unique and a pure joy to read. I didn't really start loving this series right away. I enjoyed it very much, but I wasn't in love. However, I wound up falling in love with it more and more each book. I recommend this book and every book in this series!

Really excellent story and narration

oooo I loved this! Brayden has not made much of an appearance in the rest of the series so it was really great to get to know him. I really enjoyed the set up of the story and how it played out alongside all the characters we had met before as well as a few new ones. Listening to Troy Duran and Sarah L Colton narrate these characters is like like slipping on a pair of comfy slippers, I know who is who just by listening to them and I love that so much. A really enjoyable listen and continuation of the series.

Paranormal Romance

Brayden’s Return by Michelle Dare is a paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sarah L. Colton and Troy Duran. This is the 5th book in the Paranormals of Avynwood Series.

I absolutely love Michelle’s books! I cannot wait for the next book in the series Tempting Titus to be released on audible so I can dive into Titus and Imogen’s love story.

Sarah and Troy did an amazing job on the narration. They really know how to bring a story to life.
