Publisher's Summary

Max Troika never thought he’d be the alpha of his pack. That was his older brother’s fate. Assassinations have a way of ruining everything. Including who Max can take as a mate. It sure isn’t the cute and curvy librarian inspiring his dirtiest dream every night.

Galyna Shirvan has it bad for a guy she never thought a chubby librarian like her could ever win over. Now he’s got all the hots for her, too.

But there’s something strange about Max. No, it must be her imagination and all those paranormal romance novels the teens keep telling her to read.

Werewolves aren’t real.

Ahrooo....

Great Story Ruined by Bad Narrator

The story is good. Just what I like, though I would have enjoyed seeing the nerdy librarian role played up a bit more, overall it was good. The female narrator was great. She did a good job with the voices and I enjoyed her parts. The male narrator made my skin crawl. His voice was a bit nasally and had a lisp and then when he tried to talk dirty at one point it just came out sleazy and definitely NOT hot. Idk what they were thinking with this guy. Terrible choice.

So overall good, but maybe read instead of listen to and I’m going to avoid books narrated by Curt Bonnem going forward.

eh... poor male narrator voice. story needs more.

First let me say, I'm writing this response only halfway through the story. I haven't completed yet and not sure if I have enough attention span to keep interested...

I love audio books that have dual narrators (male/female)... however, this male narrator was just not conveying the story.

to be fair, I also think the book and characters lacked development and substance. some of the character interactions came off as cringe worthy...

The idea behind the book was nice.. I think it just needs more development.

advise: wait to purchase book until it's on sale... then it'd be worth listening too.. but even though I already purchased it I'm just not sure I can finish.

Review

The characters dialogue was incredibly cheesy and cringe worthy at time but overall was a cute book with slightly confusing plot line regarding the brother’s and friend’s disappearance.

It was ok

No matter how much I wanted to like and get into this story/book something just wasn’t there.😞 The details was everything I wanted it to be a curvy, cute geeky girl falls for a hot, hunky, smart alpha wolf and vice versa. They have some smart and cheesy flirty lines but it’s maybe too cheesy at times.🙄 I wanted to like this book so much it’s been on my phone for weeks as I try to struggle through chapters to finish listening to it. 🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

Gal is extremely smart, cute, sheltered, fun, down to earth heroine! Max is a strong, sexy, funny, alpha wolf. They were definitely cute together, and I will also say as the story progressed and the plot finally developed things got better so, in the end it wasn’t the worst.

The narration was pretty decent…I won’t read again.

Just Don’t

Full disclosure, my sister and I ran through this, because heckling is one of life’s simple joys. That said, as poor as the writing is, the narration was worse. Among a myriad of foibles I think the most damming was the fact that I was left unsure if the author actually had any adult female friendships to draw on. Gal and her roommates read more like what a 12 year old imagines adult female friendships are like, rather than any resemblance to the real thing.

I’ll stop here by saying that this is a book definitely best consumed with a bottle of wine and a friend to laugh with.

Worst narration ever

Typical werewolf romance story. it could be a little vulgar at times. The narration was just bad the different voices didn’t work sometimes it was robotic and monotone other times it sounded like when a boy‘s voice is changing The female voice sounded snobbish & unconvincing. I don’t know if I’ll continue after this first one

Wish you had more books on audible from this series. I enjoyed the ones on here. But that’s it and you have many more

An erotic, raunchy, romance story.

Good listen if you like erotic, romance, stories and nice to find a plus size main character. May be a bit crude in some places but definitely worth a listen if you like your raunchy stories.

Wow. So bad. Wattpad did it better.

Pov: it's 2013 and Werewolves and shifter romance are in its peak and written by 14 year olds on Wattpad.

Honestly those books I read when I was a teen written by other teens, were SO MUCH BETTER. This author did not know where her own story was going. I was just as confused as all the characters. She shamelessly plugs herself in the books, which removes you from the world she tries to create. However, there was no actual world building. Lack of detail to the history of this world.

Suzzane Wright has your back if you need hot steamy shifter romances with actual plots. Or go on Wattpad and read an actual shifter romance or AO3 for more detailed fanfic. Anything is better than this.

Short, sometimes sweet

The narrators didn’t do it for me — the woman speaks in a clipped way that doesn’t sound b natural. And the male narrator (I feel bad saying this) was too high-pitched and nasal for me.

The story is cute but felt like it needed more chapters to go into greater depth. Since these characters knew each other back in the day, we get an instalove that’s hard to believe.

I need a wolf shifter!!

The chemistry these characters share is beautiful. With hardly any confidence I love how this Alpha has the power to make his mate feel beautiful. A great performance.

very very raunchy

I liked the story and after it warmed up was very raunchy and steamy. the voices of the narrators was a bit off and took some getting used to but overall a good listen.

Not sure what to expect... but CRAP comes to mind.

Erotica as written by a 14 year old boy.
I started laughing and couldn't stop. How could the narrators read this?
There are too many words to explain just how awful this truly is, and not enough space.
Walk away.

Lost the plot

it shaped up to be a great book but half way through one of the main plots disappeared. I was left disappointed not knowing if Costa and his mate got back together. And what happened to Zara? Everyone was looking for her and then she just dropped off the side of Earth. It feels like the author forgot she had these plots intertwined with others. Other than that the book was pretty good.

Excellent

Max Troika is a wolf shifter who has had the hots for Galyna a sexy human librarian since school but he can’t do anything about it can he? What follows is a hot romance with twists and turns mixed with wars between wolves and long held secrets but, once Max gets Gal in his bed all bets are off and the fun begins with scorching hot sexual interactions that will blow away all preconceived notions and open up to a possible future Max never envisioned. Well and truly worth a listen.

Against the reviews

So I listened to this story even after quite a few negative reviews. The story line ain’t bad I quite liked the idea of it all, however the male narrator made made it seem as tho the character Max was a teenager. Some of the sex scenes were abit overdone with what they were saying to each other but definitely not the worst story I’ve heard 🙂

Collaboration needed!

This could have been a 4 ⭐️, if not for the narration.The women was weird, halting, sleazy, phone sex voice, but reasonable female characters (husky male mafioso, that all sound the same and ridiculous).

The male voice did a, reasonable, male presentation, though it took some time to get used to him. His Russian accent was terrific, but his female depictions were ludicrous. High, nasal, cringeworthy.
Plus, each time we went back to the female narration, we lost access to the accent, it was very off-putting. It didn’t feel like the same character, at first I didn’t realise it was.

The story however, was so much better than I expected!
I’ve read a short story from this author, same world and characters, and wasn’t inclined to read on.
But I so liked the idea’s she was presenting, and since this was free on audible… why not.
So, so glad.
Fun, clever, spicy, a couple of new twists on the same old, making it familiar, but still intriguing to read.

A little young at times, a few cringe moments, but over all, well worth it.
Helps, that the last few books in this genre were such a disappointment.
The sex scenes get a bit much, but that’s a matter of personal opinion, and not a reflection on the writing.

I would have liked a bit more variety in the characters, but that seems to be something only found in more serious, and longer novels. Not the fluffy, fun, paranormal romance genre, sadly…

Looks like I need to keep reading, who knows, stranger things have happened.. 🐲

patiently waiting

I should have waited for all the books.... glued to it is an understatement..... had headphones in while feeding, changing bums and playing with my baby I struggled to pause it for adult conversations....
