Publisher's Summary

It happens whenever wolf shifter Roni Axton is near Marcus Fuller: a crackle of sexual awareness that's intoxicating...and deeply annoying. Marcus is a pack enforcer who oozes power, but Roni is lethal in her own right - nothing like the flirty females who flock around him. Even still, his possessive gaze makes one thing clear. Marcus has singled her out for seduction, and he wants to make her sit up and beg.

No matter how aloof and unfazed Roni acts, Marcus can tell she wants him. When a brutal attack by a jackal pack forces them to work together, it's the perfect opportunity for Marcus to chip away at her defenses - until he falls into his own trap, completely unprepared for the intensity of their connection. Roni is the only one who's ever seen past his shifter charm and discovered the man hiding beneath it. And for Marcus, claiming Roni once will mean needing her forever.

The Best One in The Series!

So far, this is my favorite story in the series.

I like these stories because there is a plot and action but they have a lot of steamy romance. However, the other books in the series seemed to have more bad language during these scenes and the male characters had to be dominate. In this story, it was more balanced which has made this my favorite book in the series.

Loved it! Now I just have to wait for the next book!

Steamy.

Another hot book by Suzanne Wright. The pages were steaming with this book. So if you are a fan of the series pick it up. I still love the first book best, with the third my least favorite. I wish there was a little more action, but for a romance it is great. I love the characters in this book and can't wait for the next couple to have their book, I'm hoping it's Ryan's book. Since it has been awhile since I read the other books and I did need a bit to remember all the characters, but the one I forgot most was Roni (Nick's Sister from book 3) although it came back quickly. I got this book/audio for $5.98 total using the Whispersync feature. Narrator does an awesome job.

The wolf pack versus the jackels....

Two packs, lots of characters, hard to keep up. This listen was ok for me, the storyline was a bit different but the mating continues, this time it is Marcus and Rony. Jill Redfield does an amazing job trying to keep all the characters recognizable but it is becoming difficult to keep up with everyone. Sale buy only!

prefer the first ones

This one was not bad but I preferred the first ones much more. I love how they are always cracking jokes and this one was just not as funny. The characters in this one lost some of the spunk that I enjoyed.

Perversions.

This series is becoming depraved. Last book had shifters hunted and brutally killed. This one is much worse.
And Marcus who was diddling Trick in the first book is suddenly the romantic hero? Yah right.

Such potential ...

Any additional comments?

I like the series but feel as though the first book (Taryn & Trey's story) was the best. Nick & Shaya's was just ok and Roni & Marcus had such potential but it was fell flat. I am taking a break from the series for a bit.

Repetitive

The narrator was great as always, I highly recommend her to Branch out to other authors because she has a gift. It seems as I buy these books from the series the storyline is the same. I have to say this is the last book from the series will read or say listen too.

Don't waste your credit

Wolf shifters hate Jackyl shifters and Jackyl shifters hate Wolf shifters. Throw in a whole lot of sex scenes a whole lot of fight scenes, very little plot and you have this book.

Another Good Book about the Phoenix Pack

Where does Dark Instincts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the Phoenix series I would say it is one of the better ones - as for series as a whole I think book one is the best.

Any additional comments?

We first met Roni Axton in book three. Book four goes into detail following how Roni builds a permanent relationship with a member of the Phoenix pack. This book contains a fair amount of graphic sex. If I were to make a negative comment it would be an error made by Suzanne Wright. She changed the personality of Kathy who was a love person in book three and appears to be a harridan in this book. I am not sure I will buy the next one in the series as I feel they are becoming formulaic.

another great book in the series.

I love listening to the Phoenix pack and mercury pack series. so far have read all but the latest of each series but i think this one had a lot more humour in it what with the odd facts and practical jokes played but one of the characters. although all the books are equally good

Great Narration.

Great Narration.
Read through KU whilst also flicking and listening to the audible version too. What a great idea to Read and Listen. Very handy using my headphones when doing stuff around the house. I don’t lose the flow of the story.
Will be buying all the audible books over time.
I have to say the narrator for this book was one of the best with an enjoyable narration. Lots of inflections and I could tell most of the characters apart.
BOOK REVIEW
Very enjoyable story with truly likeable characters.
Great having the two packs working together to deal with some nasty jackals.
Not knowing it was a spin off series, I had read the first Mercury Pack book so I am ahead of what is happening in this book. Now I am up to date and will be continuing in reading order rather than series order.
Having read these books straight through I found this so similar to the previous books with the same synopsis of situations and problems.
A nasty woman who likes to belittle others. Then we get some other woman drama as well as the bond not forming due to emotional blocks.
After the lack lustre heroine in the last book I was wary of continuing. Luckily Roni is a great heroine with a quirky attitude I adored.
Lots of laugh out loud moments for me with Roni and her smart mouth and her performing some real antics.
Marcus has depths that we finally get to see. So nice how he was so focused on Roni.
Great having the two packs working together to deal with some nasty jackals.
Loved how the women dealt with the female jackal.
Trick being the voice of reason was interesting.
Once again mummy issues and weird parents seem to abound.
Of course these parents are the cause of the H’s emotional blockage to their bonding.
Roni’s mother is a nasty woman who likes to belittle her daughter.
Marcus’s mother is just plain nuts. Glad he told his father he was not interested.
It was a bit too easy to know who was part of SNM and had uploaded the video of Roni’s Attack.
Read through KU whilst also flicking and listening to the audible version too. I have to say the narrator for this book was one of the best with an enjoyable narration. Lots of inflections and I could tell most of the characters apart.

****Dark and Decadent****

An explosive story of a playboy and a tomboy, it's fast paced, an absolute thrill ride from beginning to end. Suzanne your characters are fictional but you tackles realistic issues, from sexual assault to trauma and i applaud you for that. Jill thank you for another amazing narrative. xox
