Publisher's Summary

Lizette Butler has the only thing she ever wanted - freedom from her pack Alpha, Maxime Simard, and the ability to decide her own fate. She and Max have a turbulent history and a powerful - if unwilling - attraction. Unfortunately, mere distance can’t stop the past from crashing back in to disrupt her life. Nor can it stop the rush of desire that overwhelms her the minute she sees him again. Her body may crave his physical seductions, but her heart will never let her love him.

As leader of the New York territory, Max has everything - wealth, power, and an army of wolves ready to jump at his command. But a mistake he made five years ago may have cost him the only thing worth living for: Lizette. He also knows something Lizette doesn't- she possesses a rare ability that makes her a target and a prize. Max can command Lizette to return to the pack, but he can’t command her trust...or her love. And if he can’t heal the rift between them, he may lose her forever.

FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The narration was amazing, and I have to give Sophie James props for her wonderful French accent. This book made me very happy because of the strong heroine and interesting plot. I was engaged throughout the entire book and was grateful to have a book that could finally keep my interest. I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND LISTENING TO IT, BECAUSE THIS BOOK IS 100% WORTH THE CREDIT. READ IT BECAUSE YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

Intriguing

This is the first shape shifter book I’ve ever listened to and I was totally into it. It was hot!! I am not usually into any kind of sci-fi stuff but I’m sure I will listen to this again. The Narrator was spot on with these characters. Loved the entire experience. 🎧Audiobook Obsession reviewer

Good Wolf Story

This author was new to me and I enjoyed her book. Max, the alpha, orders Lizette back to the pack from her well ordered life living as a human. Lizette was very angry because she did not want to return and Max would not let her go. She tried to escape for a little while so she could think but Max tracked her down. I love when Max confessed how he felt about her and he told her about her special power. This turned out to be a pretty good book that did not have too much suspense. It was great when Lizette came into her own strength which was a nice set up for the ending. This is my first time listening to this narrator. She was pretty good with both male and female voices.

Alpha, Territory, Healer, Orphan...A New Life

Wow I really enjoyed this story and a new author and series for me. Plus Sophie James is a favorite narrator of mine..her husky voice draws a picture and feeling from each story she tells. A girl whose parents were shifters living away from their pack died when she was young...mates one couldn’t live without the other...a family where the parents were so obsessed with each other the daughter had no place in their lives and had no idea she was a shifter. In comes the young alpha of her pack when she’s been in foster care and brings her back to the pack to discover who she is. A strong alpha who reigns over a very large area, he knows more about her, recognizes her as his mate..but gives her time to grown up. She doesn’t understand and hasn’t been told who or what her gift is..a healer...but special. I enjoyed the secondary characters and anxiously await more audiobooks...especially if done by Sophie James...or someone just as talented..the story was great...More Please!

Moxie Meets Wild Stength

This story is so much fun! You are meeting Lizette, who is an incredible strong willed and smart woman who is ready to fight for what she wants; and Max, the strongest Alpha in America who knows that he has found his mate and that she is in more danger than she thinks. Lizette and Max fight each other independence, freedom, love, and safety. The story is a fun one that keeps the reader listening until you suddenly realize 3, 4, 5 hours have passed! Sophie James is an amazing narrator who brings you into the story and keeps you interested! I truly enjoyed this story! I would definitely suggest this for anyone who loves Paranormal romance and a fierce and fabulous woman! Ciera is a fierce woman who is ready to go to hell and back from her sister, literally... This story is a light Reverse Harem (so far!) and features some amazingly sexy and interesting characters. This is a retelling of Dante's Inferno, so you get to enjoy the excitement of the rings of hell while also getting to watch the characters grow and get better. I truly enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone who has a love of the paranormal fun in hell! Hiral Varsani is a great narrator! I had never heard anything from her before, but I really enjoyed her different voices and her narration! I can't wait to listen to the rest of this series! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Alpha wolf & his mate

What a Wolf Desire is an excellent start to the Lux Catena Series. I love a good paranormal shapeshifter romance, especially one with a hot alpha. Both the storyline and characters are delightful; my attention was captured and held from start to end. Maxime is the Alpha Wolf and is aware that Lizette is his mate. Unfortunately, due to a rough childhood, Lizette is not very trustful, particularly of her own emotions. I definitely enjoyed listening to their journey to HEA. Sophie James did a fantastic job narrating this audiobook. She captured the characters' personalities, emotions, and their chemistry very nicely. This was an entertaining listen and, I strongly recommend this audiobook to all paranormal romance readers and listeners. 🎧 AudiobookObessionReviewer

Loved it!!

This was a great listen! I loved the dynamic of Max and lisette and how they fought to get to where they are at the end. My only complaint and this is totally a personal preference is I like when there is a male narrator or the narrator changes their voice more when playing multiple parts but honestly I would listen again just how it is. #audiobookobsession🎧

Werewolf shifter romance with an interesting twist

Max knew Lizette was meant to be with him the first time he met her - Lizette was fifteen. Max had just rescued Lizette from fostering by humans and brought her back to live with other shifters. Fast forward and Lizette is twenty-four and in college and Max sends his wolves to bring her home. Max may have seemed like a jerk, but he had his reasons, he stayed in the background to let Lizette grow up and explore life. The story has action and love in good doses. AudiobookObsession

Great storyline but not my favorite narrator

I really enjoyed the storyline of the book. It was interesting, super sexy and well written. The author was able to include unique ideas into a shifter genre that is inundated with characters that follow a pretty stereotypical guideline. I'm really looking forward to picking up book two! Sophie's narration style is not my favorite. For my personal taste I need more emotion portrayed, especially during the steamy scenes. It looses something for me when intenses of great emotion are read in a more or less monotone way. Give me all the feels please!! #audiobookobsessionreviewer
