Publisher's Summary

Wolf shifter Jaime Farrow has a secret. And no one - not her Alpha, not her best friend, and most definitely not gorgeous Dante Garcea - can know the truth. She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him....

As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it. So when rebellious Jaime begins acting strangely, Dante makes it his mission to find out why. But after years of keeping her - and his desire - at arm’s length, he is forced to confront the danger she poses to their pack…and the passion smoldering between them.

    I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol

    "Great Author/Great Narrator"

    I love Suzanne's books. You don't have to read each of them in order. The only thing is that she includes them in each book, but in very small ways. So you really don't need the history. As usual, Suzanne writes a great story and Jill Redfield does a fabulous job of telling it. The thrill, suspense and romance does what it is supposed to do when listening to it being read. You get anxiety, confusion, scared, romantic, and all the other emotions that Suzanne's books get from you. I really enjoy reading her books and looking forward to more of her books.

    "Copy and Paste"

    This story was almost exactly the same as Book One. Jamie's attitude is exactly like Terrian. Jamie talks to Greta exactly just like Terrian. Jamie and Donte try not to bond just like Terrian and Trey. Jamie has to deal with Ex-girlfriend drama just like Terrian. Jamie's wolf is alttle out of control just like Trey. There are two sex scenes that were literally copied and pasted into this story. I actually went back to book one to check. EXACTLY THE SAME WORD FOR WORD. Now getting paste that problem, the book was ok. But I there was no suspense. I knew what to what was coming with the Glory and Laura plot. I hope book 3 has fresh material.

    "Disappointment"

    I really liked everything about the 1st of the series. This one lacked story, where Taryn was fun, Jamie was rude, self-centered, poor me basically unlikeable. The narration was flat and I found it hard to follow as the characters didn't pull me in like they did in 1.
    The sex was boring & repetitive.. I started fast forwarding through it
    Hoping Nick and Shayla's story is better. She was so whiny that I'm fearful it'll be a repeat of this one

    Story
    "Starting to see a cartoon name calling pattern..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. I enjoyed reading about a new couple, but the characters have the same personality and verbal characteristics as the previous book, which leads to no distinctive characters from book to book. I want to enjoy new wording, sayings, personalities, not a repeat of what worked in the first book.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot was the most interesting part of the book and the main reason I finished it. I really didn't enjoy the same verbal banter and sarcastic remarks the second time around. I think the use of cartoon name calling might be a theme in the author's books...which leads me to feel like the characters are acting juvenile in a very adult situation. Having mentioned the author's weak point in her writing, I'll say that the plot was interesting and unpredictable. The narrator approached the characters the same as the first book which is why the characters of the first and second books sound so much alike. I think the narrator fits this series but she should work on making each character distinctive since the author is writing the books the way she is. Overall I rated the book in the middle--not bad but not great. The narrator helped by performing the book and not simply reading it.

    Story
    "Can't play with the big dogs"

    I am going to review Feral Sins and Wicked Cravings together since they are both available on Audible right now. Also, they are basically the same story - only the H/h names are different.

    I really like erotic romances with sexy alpha males. After reading so many 5-star reviews for this series, I couldn't wait to get my credits so I could get these 2 books. My first listen of Feral Sins was probably a very hot 4-star experience, so I got Wicked Cravings, too.

    After listening to each book a second time, I realized that these books are not very well written (in addition to being the same story recycled). The clumsy writing caused Jill Redfield's performance to suffer (compared to her performance in the Crossfire series).

    Her performance was hindered by horrendous sentence structure throughout the book. It seemed like she couldn't make sense of what she was reading from time to time. Her recitation was awkward in many places, which made listening to these books a bit unsatisfying. When the sentences don't flow properly, I get distracted trying to figure out what is actually being said. Consequently, I have to rewind and listen to those passages again so that I can stay in sync with the story. This is very frustrating when you listen to an audiobook.

    Another thing I noticed about Redfield's performance was that she lost her characters' voices from time to time (especially Dante). She definitely has a good range of voices at her command, so I can only assume that the poor writing was making it difficult for her to stay in character as she was reading.

    The sarcasm was a bit too much. It's fine to use some witty snark from time to time, but most of the sarcasm in these 2 books was very childish and got extremely boring. The pick-up lines that Dominic used were also overdone. These 2 issues made me feel like I was listening to books written for teens, which was in sharp contrast to the sexual content of the story.

    As for the story line, it was okay the first time around, but when I listened to Wicked Cravings, I felt cheated. It was obvious that Ms. Wright developed a formula (and not a very original one at that) and just changed a few details for Wicked Cravings. Even the "hot, tight and wet" mantra was there in all the same places as it was in Feral Sins. Dirty talk is great, but have some imagination! Change it up from one book to the next.

    The characters were fairly well developed. I liked them enough to want them to have their HEA's, but I didn't feel tremendously invested in any of them. It would be a good idea to tone Greta down as time goes by. Maybe even let her die from old age.

    I will probably get the next book because I follow the "3 strikes and you're out" policy. Also, I know that if I really don't like it, I can get a refund from Audible.

    "Had to stop listening"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, it's like listening to porn and totally grossed me out.


    If you’ve listened to books by Suzanne Wright before, how does this one compare?

    I listened to the first audiobook in this series and downloaded this one before I was even finished with it. She writes very depraved, graphic sex scenes, over and over and over in her books. I got through the first one, mainly because I really enjoyed Taryn, but after getting part way through this one, I just can't take any more of these sex scenes. As much as I want to know the rest of the story, I'm returning. It's just disgusting. I'm not a prude, I've read/listened to many other books with sexual scenes (not that I'm proud of that), and I wish most of them were skimmed over or skipped too, but this author takes sexual scenes to a whole new level with all of the domination and lot of regular, oral, and anal (blech!) sex. I just can't in good conscience recommend this book.


    What three words best describe Jill Redfield’s voice?

    Really, really good


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. It'd basically be porn.

    "Sarcasm at its best!"
    What made the experience of listening to Wicked Cravings the most enjoyable?

    I loved,loved, loved this book. The best part for me was the narrator. Jill Redfield is awesome. I could not stop listening the characters are unique and funny and you can't wait to hear what comes out of their mouths next. Her pet names for characters are so funny. The story line keeps you interested and wanting more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    One of the best parts for me is the dialogue between Greta and the female characters. Oh how I wish I could uses some of their lines on my mother-in-law. Here's to dreaming:)


    What does Jill Redfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I could not stop listening Jill Redfield does an amazing job bring the characters to life. She delivers the sarcasm lines in a way that has you laughing out loud. My family thinks I am loosing my mind:)


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

    I also loved the birthing scene. I burst out laughing as it was not a typical all is beautiful, sunshine and roses. But it also was not typical cursing your husband either. The author puts her sarcastic spin to make it hilarious. Even the sex scenes are written with humor. Everyone loves those scenes but it is nice and refreshing to have sarcasm brought into it so that it keeps you hot and bothered with a smile on you face.


    Any additional comments?

    Feral Sins was my first read by this author and I raced through that book too. I highly recommend this book, as well as the first book, to anyone who likes a strong woman and a lot of snappy dialogue. The only down side is that we have to wait until 2014 for the next book. I hope that is not the last in this series as there are so many characters that could have a great story. Happy listening.

    Story
    "PHOENIX RISING !!!!"
    If you could sum up Wicked Cravings in three words, what would they be?

    I liked that there was continued interaction amongst all of the characters. I liked that the first book moved seamlessly into this one. I also liked that there was a lot of emotion, hot steamy explicit sex and there were stories within the stories, but all came together in the end.


    What other book might you compare Wicked Cravings to and why?

    I am very much interested in this author and her version of "Shifters". I am anxiously awaiting the next book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes. The author explains the difference between straight human and human shifters such that it is plausible as well as a different spin than I've read before. I like Suzanne Wright's spin.


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

    Nothing. I think she did an excellent job. The male voices, especially Dante's was great. All of the different tenors of Dante's voice depicting anger, dominance, grief/sadness, lust, even his laugh she did a great job with. The different female voices were also done superbly.

    Story
    "Sexy Paranoemal Romance"

    For those who enjoy paranormal romance/action stories, they will enjoy Wicked Cravings. There is just the right amount of sex, romance (cause hey, there is definitely a difference), suspense, wolf fights and shape shifting. And while some would say that there is nothing extremely original or new about the story....shape shifter girl with secret meets hot shape shifter guy who doesn't think he wants a relationship because he fears intimacy or letting anything come between him and his job....but realizes that he must have her....and then they have some obstacle to overcome....and soon he realizes that she is his entire world.... and they fight any and every one to be together....because when it comes down to it, they are stronger together than apart. SO, while there may not be anything horribly new or original, there was something about this story that had me staying up all night to see how it ends. I was invested in their romance and really wanted to see how it all ended. I enjoyed the characters, the witty banter (between Jaime & Dante), and the flow of the story. And while this was my first Suzanne Wright book, I definitely can't wait to read other stories in the series (especially the next one that has to be Shaya and Nicks's story which I can already tell will be a doozy).
    Jill Redfield does an outstanding job with the delivery of the story.
