Publisher's Summary

Brenna, a she-wolf Psy, was abducted by a serial killer - and returned a monster. The only person who can help her is Judd, a telekinetic and Council defector. But the passion burning between them could push them both over the edge of sanity in the third installment in Singh's breathtaking Psy-Changeling series.

Mind over matter: listen to more in the Psy-Changeling series.

Favorite of the series so far!

Rowr! Okay, this one is my favorite book in the series so far. I've pretty much liked them all, but this one was extra hot!

Best of the dozen

Where does Caressed by Ice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've listened to the many books of this series multiple times and I still believe this book is my absolute favorite. The plot is better, the characters are great, and there are just so many things to love. Read the other two books before this so you can READ THIS. NOW.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Caressed by Ice?

There's just something about a character that is mentally damaged by their race to have no emotion who suddenly has instincts overpower the brainwashing. Judd is such a strong silent warrior with a clear desire to be something other than he is, and Brenna brings out his humanity. I love it when he finally has a flameout and gets a few hours to do as he pleases before he has to return to the emotionless restraint.

What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

Angela Dawe is the perfect voice for the non-human type. She can pull off scratchy deep voices of the male wolf changelings and sound utterly devoid of emotion like the psy. She's in her element with these novels.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Flameout.

Any additional comments?

I'm a grad student with little time to read fiction let alone write reviews (which is why mine are usually in need of a proofread - there's just no time), so I have used audible as a way to get my book fix. I listen while driving, while cleaning, eating, while getting ready, pretty much any time I can snag. I've returned to this series again and again because it is my absolute favorite on this site. LOVE IT.

Still awesome!

The cover art is misleading...this book is about a changling female...and a psy male.....it was yummy yummy yummy! It only got 4 stars for repetative phrases that started to irk me, but the story itself was still really good! It was also nice to be in the wolf pack...rather than the leopard pack...nice change of pace and dynamics since every pack is different.

Still heart warming, still thought provoking, this book was build up for what are many more to come! If you haven't started this series yet....what the heck is stoping you?

Really intense

This love story was so intense that I got shivers. The need between the main characters was so thick and obvious and subtle and sweet and sexy and just everything. I could tell there was a connection before the characters realized it, but it was so subtle that I didn't feel like they were just being thrown together for no reason. Every scene was important. Nothing was wasted and that's what I love most about Nalini Singh's work. Her books are so well developed, and the characters are constantly evolving and growing together. In this one in particular. The main characters where so different that at first I was wondering how she would make it work, but midway through the book it was obvious that they were meant for one another. I've read all of the novels in this series so far and this one is by far my favorite.

He's not an iceman

What made the experience of listening to Caressed by Ice the most enjoyable?

This is the first story where the main character is a psy male. It gives a different perspective to those who have defected from the net. Even though it was harder for him to break silence he did it for his mate.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Caressed by Ice?

When Judd didn't stand up for Brenna at the cabin and she was mad at him. He had no idea that he was suppose to support her no matter what. It goes to show that even in the future that men are still as clueless to women's needs as they are now a days.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh. The fact that Judd didn't know how to react to Brenna and, Brenna's brother's reactions to Judd just had me rolling around laughing till my sides hurt.

Loved it!

I love this entire series and this one in particular. It has a great mix of romance (including steamy sex scenes) and action, just as all the books in the series do. The narrator does a really good job with this one. My only complaint about Nalini Singh is that she has the weirdest chapter breaks. Rather than stopping the chapter at the end of a scene, she does it right in the middle, for no reason I can discern. But that's minor.

5 STAR!!

The series continues and keeps getting better!!! Well worth the credit and if you haven't read any from Nalini Singh - take the leap, you won't be disappointed! I liked that although this one is still linked to the continuing battle with the psy counsel, you learned more about the different changeling packs. Jed and Brenna are both stubborn and when they finally give in to each other it definitely creates fireworks in the bedroom. Love it!! I beg that you keep adding the rest of this series!!!

REVIEW:
Just when I think that Vaughn is my favorite Judd Lauren walks into my life. All tall, dark, cool and oh my goodness yummy!!!! I totally loved everything about Judd and Brenna’s story. These two are so beyond perfect together. I am so glad that Brenna never gave up on Judd. :)
This story had a lot of ups and downs that at times I wondered how Nalini was going to pull it all off. But being the amazing story teller that she is Nalini made everything perfect.
Again another amazing story from Nalini and another amazing reading by Angela! These two are an amazing pair. I am already on to the next audio book in this series and as long as Nalini keeps turn out amazing stories and Angela narrates them I will keep going on audio in this series.

Caressed by Ice

Sooo when I first started this book it was actually after book 1 and I was like who are these people?!? Then I realized I started the wrong book. Hahaha When I got back to this book I was eager to get into it because I was already at like chapter 8 and Judd had already stolen my heart. Brenna, we meet in earlier books and already I wanted her to get her HEA because she deserves it. No joke. I would never have said she and Judd would get together after everything Brenna had been through, especially with someone as powerful as Judd is. It really surprised me and it was kind of karma if you think about it. Judd’s character really spoke to me because of who he is and what he is capable of and not only that but his sense of who he doesn’t want to be but doesn’t really know it until Brenna. I don’t know if that makes sense but if and when you read the book it will. Again the narration might throw you for a loop but once you are in you are in I am telling you, you will not notice the mechanicalness of it because it will seem like the character and isn’t that what we want out of our audiobooks?
