Publisher's Summary

Kelsey Adams is alone, and has been since childhood. Running away is all she knows and necessary to preserve her deepest, darkest secret. She cannot afford for anyone to get close, or know about the monster within. But when she lands a lucrative job as an administrative assistant to Kyle Westin, CEO of the Westin Foundation, her life changes and everything's at stake. Can she conceal her growing feelings and her true self from this enigmatic, strong willed man, or will her world fall apart?

Kyle Westin, an alpha male who always gets what he wants, has watched and waited for the little she-wolf he knows is his perfect mate to show any signs of recognition. For two years he endures her unnecessary formality and daily rejections with a patience he did not know he possessed. But even Kyle has his limits.... Can he make Kelsey notice him as someone other than her boss and break down the walls she built around her heart? Or will Kelsey do what she has always done - run?

Contains mature themes.

Great story!

I really liked that this story was well developed without having too much angst/insecurity on the heroine’s part as well as not getting too raunchy. There are plenty of stories out there that are just sex oriented.
I look forward to seeing what is next from this author.

Creative but too inconsistent

Sorry, but an Alpha wouldn’t wait 2 yrs for his mate, let alone a True Mate.
Kyle would not have let Vanessa touch him on the arm, touch his hand, and definitely NOT kiss him, unless he was a d*ckhead weasel who liked to torment his girlfriend into jealousy. It’s definitely not something an honorable man would do with a mate. Disconnect...Disconnect...Disconnect...

I was fairly annoyed with the naïveté of the politics and strategy of Trettel’s storytelling. Several times I had to grit my teeth when she wrote both Kyle and Kelsey as Too Stupid To Live.
ALL fiction involves creating characters and worlds that have to fit and act consistently within the guidelines set up by the author, and there were Too Many Disconnects in this story.
I’m seriously tempted to return this book, but I would like to see Ms Trettel encouraged in her creativity, but find a good writing group or editor to help her future efforts.
Robins and Hempel did a creditable job with narration. Robins has a very “perky” voice that works well for a 16-24 yr old YA-UpperYA.

Finding the one

This was a great shifter story, a lot of mystery and unanswered questions kept you guessing until the end. I enjoyed it very much, well worth the credit.

Disappointed

This story was very nicely written, grabbed me right away. The let down were the sex scenes. such a great story seemed like she just wanted that part over asap. Good listen just nothing steamy.

Loved it! Can’t wait for book two!!!

Only thing I didn’t like that I was about to figure out the female lead right away.
Everything else I loved. The first four hours of the book I couldn’t stop listening even though I was three hour past my bed time giggle!
I like the two voices, very easy to listen to. The book made me cry both with joy and sadness. Had some laughs! But I love that the female lead was so strong! Both as a person and the power she possess! If you’re on the line on weather or not to get this book I hope this review helps! I’ve been really bored with the books I’ve picked lately but I most definitely wasn’t with this one!!!!

Good to a distraction

story line is a bit predictable, there was a lot of rushed info without a lot of character development. but it was a good distraction while I wait for other books. female narrator is a bit on the shrill side and for both it was hard to tell one character from another. but I will probably listen to the next one

Didn’t finish

The heroine is so annoyingly ignorant and naïve that it’s waay too unrealistic. Honestly she was surprised there were other warewolfs out there. Seriously? She heard a couple of warewolfs say “pack” and “alpha” and was surprised AGAIN that there were even more!!

great listen

I haven't quite finished listening to this book but OMG I'm already itching to listen to the next one.

I love how patient our hero 8s and the way the heroine grows.

Narration by Joe and Carly bring all the characters to life.

A definite must listen.

Certainly Enjoyed!

This book was a great book to listen too. I loved that this book had a little more then just a typical romance. I wasn't a huge fan of the narrators but it certainly doesn't ruin the book.
