Publisher's Summary

The Timber Valley pack has a terrible reputation. Word is their males are dominant, kinky, and possessive - and Josephine's best friend from college is being forced to marry one? No way!

Curvy wolf shifter Josephine Southpaw's got the perfect solution. Using a magic charm, she'll disguise herself as the slender, beautiful Camille on her wedding day - while Camille hightails it out of town with the wolf she really loves. Of course, the Alpha will ditch Josephine the second he gets her back to the wedding suite and sees what his chubby bride really looks like. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, for starters, Alpha Maxwell Battle is smokin' hot. And he takes one look at Josephine and vows to never let her go - but he's going to punish her for her trickery in deliciously sexy ways. And finally, Josephine's friends keep staging well-intentioned rescue attempts, but she's no longer sure she wants to be rescued.

But Josephine's not the only one with secrets. It soon becomes very clear that Maxwell's hiding something big, a secret that puts not only Josephine's heart but her life at risk.

Good Shifter Story

Well I took a chance and tried a new shifter book, and I loved it! The storyline was refreshing with a great Hero and Herione. The only drawback was the time. It was only around 4 hours. That's a little short for me, but its hard finding a good shifter book so on to the next one!! You cant really go wrong with Maxine Mitchell, I wish more writters understood that the narrator can make or break the book. She totally nailed it!

Terrible BDSM; no romance

Her friend, Camille, is being forced to marry Alpha Maxwell Battle, but is in love with another shifter. So using magic, a curvy Josephine pretends to be Camille and marries Maxwell. Maxwell knows what she did and marries her anyway and then asks her what was going on. They decide to stay married so Camille has time to mate with the other shifter without being forced back into her old pack. I do like Maxwell's personality mostly, but the writing just ruins it. Maxwell does some light BDSM and Josephine likes it, but there is no trust, love, romance, etc. The sex scenes are just so poorly done compared to other BDSM books (see Sweet Captivity for good BDSM). They start to feel jealousy in regard to each other, but the writer fails to make us feel like they like each other first. It just didn't work.

I found the narrator's voice to be annoying. She made the female so yappie. And I didn't like the way she did the male voice. Compared to narrators like Andi Arndt, it was just so disappointing.

Just wow!

I love this series I've read it through twice now! It gets better every time I do! In the first book I like that we get an in depth look at the timber valley wolf pack. Maxwell is more than meets the eye as Josephine comes to realize. He sees right through her from day one when she tries to pose as her friend to marry Maxwell. He definitely likes what he sees and has lots of dirty wonderful plans for his new bride. This book had it all twists and turns, heartfelt moments and even a bit of mystery to some characters! I won't spoil it for you but I definitely recommend you get this book and all of the series cause I know I couldn't put them down and I bet you won't either!

Worth taking the time to listen.

Tolerable narrator, well laid out plot, well developed characters. Be prepared to love the Battle clan and all their quirks.

Enjoyed this book immensely. Light consensual kink

Short but enjoyed it. Happy to find it as a series of books. Appreciate the plus-size strong female leads!

needs dual narration.

The first chapter almost made me drop it, but it got better quickly. Narration was great for the female voices, but all the male voices by the female narrator soundedd like 15 year old boys, or Rudolph from the Christmas special. From the cover picture of our hero, I expected a more manly voice. The story was good and easy to follow, and had a good amount of intrigue fort a short book. The steam was ancillary and didn't fit in the story line - should either be expanded or dropped. I was able to guess some of the plot too early, but otherwise we'll written.

A cute quick read

It was short and sweet. I loved Maximus the most. The female lead had way too many trust issues and was too hung up on her weight.

Fun, easy read

Love Georgette’s books and have read them all. I tend to read/listen to more darker books but sometimes I need a break and to read something not so heavy, so it took me awhile to get round to the audio version. I really wish I’d not left them so long, as they are brilliant!!! Funny, easy to listen to with a mystery story arc that runs through the series.
Maxine Mitchell is great, love her male voices. Definitely give them a go.
