Publisher's Summary

Monique had been hiding away in the northern Vermont Mountains for the previous seven years. Hiding from her past, from her pain, and mostly from herself.

However, all that was to change the day she came across an adorable wolf pup who appeared to have a profound effect on her.

Little did she know, the pup was the son of Alpha Wolf Carver, who feared his son had been kidnapped.

Upon discovering that his pup was safe and being cared for by Monique, Carver realized he had the opportunity to ask the young girl for one final, life-changing favor.

His Guardian

His Guardian!

This was a decent story about shifters that's full of suspense, action and some romance. Carver's son is special, and chooses Monique to be his guardian to help protect him, and as his protector she gains some really interesting abilities.

Overall, the plot was good and the romance between Carver and Monique was sweet; however, with so much packed into such a short story, it did feel like it was jumping around.
The narration was great! David Quimby really does a good job with the different characters and emotions.

It Started Off OK….But Lost Me!

I love all types of shifter stories, and the summary to Carver really caught my attention. I was excited to listen, but sadly as the story unfolded, I just could not connect to either the plot or characters.

Overall, it was an OK story, and it had an interesting concept of a guardian and shifters; however, the delivery of the plot left me confused, lost, and frustrated with all the jumping around. Many of the scenes felt under-developed, and l was left with more questions than answers. I thought there were too many scenes, ideas, and time jumps packed into such a short story.

This is the first story I've heard narrated by David Quimby, and he did a decent job. He used the right amount of tones, and inflections to convey the different emotions throughout the story.

I gave the story an overall 3 stars. I didn't dislike the book, I just felt confused throughout the story. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Unique Love Story

I liked this. The paranormal aspect mixed with the reality of grief and baggage that hold a person down, an awakening to a second chance with purpose and desirable side benefits. Nice. I found the idea of an adaptable-shifter guardian very cool. This definitely wasn't the standard. I'm not sure I would even call it a romance, though it is a love story of sorts, and there is plenty of heat. I was not expecting the dynamics of the relationships. They certainly weren't the usual. People often complain when a book is too predictable, but it's funny how I actually WANTED this to go that route and was a bit put off when it didn't, but I got over it. I don't want to give spoilers. Just know that, if you're looking for something a little different than H&h fall desperately in love and live HEA, this might do the trick for you. On the other hand, it may cause you to appreciate a good cookie-cutter romance too. You'll have to decide for yourself.

So, yes, the writing was slightly confusing in spots. At Chapter 9, I was like, "Who's Portia? Who's Na?" With no explanation, you have to just figure out that this brief chapter takes place at some point in the future. Then, Ch 10 is 5 years after Ch 8 which, and at that point, you don't quite know if this is happening before or after the events of Ch 9. That was a bit frustrating, and a simple, "Chapter 9: Part II Five Years Later: Prologue" and "Chapter 10: A Few Days Earlier" would've come in handy. However, even with the need for a little better explanation, it was an enjoyable listen.

David Quimby reads clearly and pronounces words correctly. He delivers the written work in a pleasant way that feels like he's telling the story around a fire until he performs the characters' voices which I thought he did reasonably well.

Outstanding

Carver(Alpha Wolf), Kirk(Carver's unique son with extraordinary skills), Monique(rescued Kirk from the crazy Brennen who wanted power) are three very unique individuals who make this story very good. I loved the story and the way that each character came to life within the story. The narrator was very good and made the entire listening experience outstanding.

Good story overall but jumped around a bit

I enjoy shifter stories and was really looking forward to this one. The story starts off pretty good then it seems to jump several years later and I was kind of lost about what happened...

I'm not sure I connected well with the characters. It seems to me there were missing chapters or something.

The narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life.

The idea concept of a guardian is an awesome one but I think the story could have developed better.. Even getting lost some I still enjoyed listening to the story. The conclusion was ok not what I expected.

The One.

Would you consider the audio edition of Carver to be better than the print version?

I have only listened.

What does David Quimby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is a great storyteller. Monique's accent was good and the rest were good. Rather than try to have different voices for each he became a storyteller. Often, that is the best method, as in this book.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the shifter story, with some almost Indian Lore based roots. The love story of Monique and Carver, with the pup Kirk. There seemed to be a number of enemies. Teamwork and their tight relationship made them come out ahead each time. Good story, one that I will listen to again. I do recommend.

Had a Good Start but..

Any additional comments?


*Spoilers*

The book description was interesting and the story got off to a good start BUT..

I didn't like that the book "felt" like a part one and a part two, meaning, it was a bit choppy.

Five years went by between the first part and the second part of the book.

The two main leads were supposed to be in love BUT..
another male alpha could just insert himself in their relationship whenever he wanted.

I did not like the ending nor the threesome.

David Quimby did well with the narration.

Light, fluffy, and totally enjoyable

What an enjoyable listen! I love shifter stories, and this one was a lot of fun. Foxxe's writing was incredibly engaging, the smut was smoking hot, and I found myself actually invested in the action and the love story. If you are looking for a well narrated romance novel with well written action and some actual plot, you will enjoy this book.

Also, you should know that this audiobook was given to me for free in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

Chapters out of order

Any additional comments?

Great concept - poor delivery

The story had the potential to be great but got lost along the way.

Started off great then went downhill starting at Chapter 9.
Chapter 9 comes out of left field, it's 5 years later and Kirk is making out with a never before mentioned character, then there's another character that we've never heard of attacking them.

Is this an editing problem, chapters missing or chapters in the wrong order? After a second listen it seems as though this chapter (9) is out of place. Chapter 10 should be after Chapter 8 and Chapter 9 should be inserted between Chapters 17 & 18. You would think someone along the way would of caught this error.

The concept of a guardian who can take multiple forms as a protector over Shifters is a great idea.

The story just tried to go to many directions. Monique has been with Carver for 5 years, Kirk calls her Mom, then Bam she's lusting after Paul. So after all they have been through now were going to go the 3 way route. So no, not feeling the story line.

David Quimby did an good job with the narration. Monique's slight accent was also good. Nice voice easy to listen to. Smooth even pace in the narration. Personally I think his voice talents are better suited to the western themed books.

If I had purchased this book I would have returned it.

Sexy jigsaw style paranormal romance

This story had a lot of potential. The plot is interesting but it is put together in a slightly haphazard way, so I felt I had to piece the story together. I liked the strong but vulnerable female protagonist but (warning: a little bit of a spoiler) I didn't like how easily ousted from his position as the main male character Carver was. The narration was good.
