Mating instincts are hell…
Casey hasn’t had an easy life. On her eighteenth birthday, she learns why she's always felt so different. She’s a shifter. Hiding behind a diner for shelter now that she’s been kicked out of the last in a long line of foster homes, she’s shocked when a man approaches her offering help.
Mack is still searching for the cub his father took in even years after her kidnapping. He had no idea he’d find his mate, and the girl he’s been searching for, Casey, when he offers to help a woman outside of a local favorite diner.
I really enjoyed this book. It was amazing. I loved how the story moved with explanation but at the same time kept me wanting to know more. It was very surprising to me since I am not a shifter enthusiast.

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. The author and narrator did a great job in bringing this paranormal story to life. It was hard to put down once started. To find out the powers Casey possessed was exciting. I love seeing strong women in a world full of obstacles. Seeing the compassion in Mack was heartwarming. Such a big, sexy person/animal was a turn on. The narrator did a great job with the characters, both male and female. The side stories were great as well. Looking forward to Book 2.

This is an exciting story of a girl who has been living on the street for her whole life (at least as long as she can remember) who must now accept a tale of her true origin, from a group of people she barely knows. As she learns who is trustworthy and who should be feared, the story leaves readers to wonder, is blood thicker than water. I liked the story development. The narrator was good with the male voices but made the female lead sound extremely young and pitchy.
This was my first shifter book and it was a great intro to the genre for me. The story had lots of fun twists, turns and surprises. I like the Characters and enjoyed the way the narrator portrayed their voices.
Sometimes I just find myself at loss for words on how to describe a story. Bottom line this is an entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story. It pulled me in from the start and held my attention from start to finish. Being a shorter story it's fast paced with plenty of action, intrigue, suspense and mystery. As well as a bit of steamy romance.
I enjoy all different kinds of paranormal stories and while there is nothing new or unusual about the story overall it does have a few little twists that give it a bit of uniqueness and keep it interesting. I wasn't quite sure how this going to go in the beginning with them being siblings but it all works out. Things are not what we are first lead to believe. Casey's whole world is about to be turned upside down when she discovers her true identity. Not just what but who she is.
Great cast of well rounded, intriguing and likable characters. With so many great characters it will be interesting to see where the series goes from here.
Brian Callanan does a good job with the narration. He has a nice voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Of coarse his male character voices are great. His female voices vary. Some are better than others. It didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the story. It was always easy to tell which character was speaking. He was able to bring the story and characters to life. He has Overall very enjoyable.

Each author decides her own rules and parameters for the world she's creating but Ms. Lynn has kept to certain shifter conventions such as clothing comes off and shifting is physically painful. Where she differs from many is in the combined packs/prides concept which adds interest to an already engaging story of a foster child aging out of the system and trying to survive the mean streets.
Narrator Brian Callanan [AUDIO] did a terrific job with voices, especially the hero, Mack, and, with the author, kept the action rolling.

Loved this story! I really enjoyed this one, I love shifters and this story doesn't disappoint. Great characters with plenty of romance and action. I loved getting to know Casey and Mack and look foreword to other books in this series. The narrator was really good too!

A different view on a genre I love. Different shifters within the family? I like it. The story kept my attention with the various characters that meshed quite well, the suspense, and the twists... yes the twists ... I needed to find out more. The chemistry between Casey and Mack is palpable, their journey to HEA is not easy, but the truth gets revealed and it all works out in the end. This short book makes a good start to the series.
Mr. Callanan's voice is becoming one of my faves and it is the reason I picked this book. Love his various voices, male and female, young or old, the colourful nuances, the emotions behind the words. I hope he will narrate the next book, Rook, too.

This story is quite a different take on the genre and quite refreshing and unique! I loved it. I finished the book in one sitting and will definitely be looking for the next in the series!
Brian Callanan's performance is excellent! He did a great job giving each character a unique voice. I have found another narrator to add to my favorites list!!
