Publisher's Summary

The legend of the Paka Watu.

Ever since she was a young girl, Abby Lane can't resist the allure of a catshifter tribe forced to repress their beasts. On a trip to Africa, she discovers a coveted piece of information - the name the pride leader assumed when he left his home - and she traces his lineage to his descendent.

The sleeping lion.

Utah Pearce can't keep his gaze off the woman who slips into the bar every night. Though not his usual type, she brings out the possessive instinct in him, making him battle with himself as he tries to stay away.

Mine.

Abby's research never prepared her for the reality in front of her. The beast is waking, and Utah is changing in ways both exciting and terrifying. He is possessive and dominant, and when he finally claims her, neither of them will ever be the same.

Storyline Concept Good, Narrator Ruins the Book

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

No

What was one of the most memorable moments of Waking the Beast?

When Utah realizes Abby is correct about him being a shifter

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Audrey Lusk?

Almost anyone

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just cringe from the narrator

Any additional comments?

This could be a good series of the author gets a better narrator.

Horrible narrator!!

I actually liked the story. The narrator however was horrible. She was so whinny it was hard to get passed her voice to get into the story. I'm returning it.

Action, Adventure, Romance...

Any additional comments?


Abby, the female lead, has always been drawn to lions and Utah, the male lead, is a Shape Shifter.

One day Utah and Abby are kidnapped and he is tortured by the psycho who killed her parents.

Abby and Utah find a way to escape and that's when the real action starts.

The story line has action, adventure, romance. It is very interesting and written well.

Audrey Lusk did a good job with the narration.
