Awful, only read if you’re under 14

I’m hesitant to write a bad review but this book was honestly not good. Maybe I shouldn’t have expected as much but the cover and synopsis made it sound like it was going to be a totally different book. It was basically the daily life’s of really well behaved teenagers. The shifter aspect was barely explored and they spent the entire story following the boring lives of the young characters. Sorry to the author because I know this was her debut novel but it was advertised as I was browsing paranormal romance novels. This is not a paranormal romance this is truly YOUNG adult.

Waste of time

Not only is the story absolutely terrible but the performance was even worse.... The title and cover of this book is totally deceiving!

Bad.

Character development and storyline is incredibly slow or non-existant. I could barely stomach this story due to the child-like writing and plot development. I hope a high-schooler wrote this. If you enjoy the inane day to day activities and thoughts of immature high-schoolers, this is the book for you. When I got to the part where they each took the Harry Potter quiz to find out what houses they belonged to I wanted to start banging my head against a wall. The readers are also annoying. The woman is breathy and places emphasis on her words and in sentences at the wrong points. The man's voice makes the male characters sound puny. I wish I could get my money back. The book cover is awesome though....so there's that.

Update: I just looked up the author. She is definitely a teen. Or near one. In that case....good job on this book. Everyone starts somewhere. Getting published so young is an accomplishment.

Enjoyable storyline, terrible female narrator

Really enjoyed the storyline and the male narration (Joe Hempel) was well done. However, the female narrator (Laurel Schroeder) was horrendous! Her intonation and cadence was SO extremely distracting! She has that cadence that ends on a high, questioning note after every single sentence... It's annoying and aggravating as it totally detracts from the experience and even the actual story. It's enough for me to even consider skipping the rest of the trilogy!

Horrible Narration!

I am quite interested in this story but I cannot stand the drawn out sounds at the end of every freaking word for the female voice and there is no difference between the guys voices. It's hard to track the story when there are only 2 different voices for 6 characters!
I wasted a credit! I will not finish this book.

The female narrator is too clipped/precise

The story line is intriguing. The characters are realistic and young adults. Not a book for readers over 40 as technology is realistically portrayed in the characters life. The cellphone messages portrayal stretches the length of the book but cuts too shortly the realistic time narratives and in between of plots. The female lead portrayed by the narrators readings are precise to the point of irritation. Don’t know why this book is not labeled YA Romance. Irritating dancing around erotic situations, hope the final culmination is worth the build up.

Terrible narration and basic writing

The female narrator went to the Christopher Walken school of narration. The male narrator was decent. The writing is so basic I was finishing the authors sentences. Don't bother with this one.

Extremely vanilla and terrible female narrator.

High school teen love story as simple as they come. the male narrator is enjoyable but the female makes you cringe . These teen shifters have even less animal instincts then the average teenager, and the story has very little to do with shifters at all.

Amazing Storyline!!

I loved this book, it was amazing!!!! The point of views from the different characters was amazing, as well as the storyline and the romance. I fell completely in love with the boys the first time and am still so happy that S. Dalambakis chose to make the boys have amazing personalities and manners, and made them extremely attractive and hot. I fell for each of the boys - Lucian with his amazing brain and way of thinking, Max with his playfulness and passion, Zeke with his personality and ability to understand how people are feeling most of the time, and Graydon, the big grumpy bear who is hard on the outside but warm and delicious on the inside where once you get inside, it is extremely hard to get out - with these traits for the guys and their amazing good looks, it has created every girls perfect men and once you get addicted, there is no going back. I give this book full marks. I loved it!

Cute book

loved the book. A few critiques i have are having each chapter/ character change rehash what happened from a different POV did get a little old. The fem narrator has a beautifull voice for audio books however something she consistently did to the end of every sentence with her inflection was weird. The story line itself was dull in the way that any real "action" was quick and happened in the last few chapters. To me it seemed rushed.

now in saying all that i did like the book. I would recommend it.
