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.

Wickedly Delicious

Once again, Ms. Wright had my laughing so hard at work; I got questioning looks from my co workers. This book is hilarious. Jamie doesn’t have as big of a potty mouth as Taryn but that doesn’t make her any less funny. I like Jamie’s strength and courage and her struggles throughout the book, and Dante, WOW!!! He makes me wish to be wolf-shifter.

I love Jill Redfield as a narrator. She always gives the performance that little extra. Such as when a line says the character laughed, she actually says the line laughing. It’s that little extra that makes her reading very enjoyable.

*****This might be a spoiler, but if you read the first book you should be expecting this. The funniest scene in the book was when Taryn went into labor. I literally cried, I was laughing so hard. Thank you Ms. Wright.

Just as awesome as the first book in this series!

Again I start by saying you won't be disappointed with this author/ narrator combo! These books are worth it. I always get excited when I see a new release in this series. This book will suck you in from the start. There are secrets, action, passion, love, determination, bickering, humor, sex, danger....just make the purchase already!

OHHH..... SOMEBODY BITE ME PLEEEEEZ

If you like brilliantly written PNR's that are HOT then you just HAVE to get this hot listen.

It was so funny, hot, tender, frustrating, romantic, sexy and did I say hot? filled with great characters that all get involved in the hot love lives of two wereshifters who, despite their life long attraction, fight the mutual attraction between them until it ultimately leads to a 'no strings' hot sexual relationship that was enjoyable and just fine for both of them.... that is until one day their eyes met and a connection was undeniably made.

Worth a credit? Absolutely YES - it was all I expected and more, (should you have missed my other clues - it was hot) from the brilliant mind of SR and the characters and emotions were easily tackled and filled by the many voices of JR who shows just how a gifted narrator can make a really good book great.

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.

Definitely a disappointment compared to Feral Sins

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Jaime is a just a washed out version of Taryn. Would have loved to see her have more personality and spirit like Taryn but be a strong woman of her own right. Also I think missed a lot of options by not using the sanctuary and her co-workers more. Had a hard time losing myself in this as it never really clicked.

The Narrator used the same voices for everyone so there was not distinction of who was speaking.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Made Jaime a strong spirited woman, as Taryn is but not be "like" Taryn. Even the way she would occasionally talk to herself as a Taryn moment or smarting off with Greta. But it was a washed out version of Taryn. I missed her showing her strength and sticking to it.

What didn’t you like about Jill Redfield’s performance?

She uses the same voice, one for a man and one for a woman...so just by voice you have no idea who she is and there was no emotion in it.

Could you see Wicked Cravings being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, its to disjointed to be a movie.

Any additional comments?

Sad :( I absolutely loved Feral Sins and couldn't wait to read this and was a big let down. Hoping Nick and Chayla's story is better.

Book or Porn....

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

So this is the second book in this series and though I really really wanted to like it, it fell short... by allot. I like the story line and the narrator but I got very tired of all the sex in this book. I understand having books with sex in it and I enjoy is as much as any romance reader but when there's just as many chapters with sex and dirty talk as actual story it gets old. I found myself more then once just skipping those sections completely. I think if you took out all the sex the book would would be less then half its original size. The whole book made me wish that the focus was on story and the personalities of the people then how good they were in bed. At the end of the book the conflict resolution and story growth made me more then a little sad. I hope Ms Write will write more but if her stories don't focus on the story I wont be getting more books from her. I want a good book. If I want crood sounding porn I'll go on the internet.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

That was it? Wheres the rest?

What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

Very good narrator. Equally good with men and women. She went all in with her voices and made me feel connected with the character

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wicked Cravings?

Almost half of the sex scenes. That may have knocked it down to only one or two dozen.

Any additional comments?

I liked the story. I really did. I would love to read more of her work but I don's want to have to listen to sex all the time. I also would have liked to see more focus on the plot the sex scenes because at the end they never really handled it correctly. I'd give her anther chance but not much more with out her improving,

Same outline as book #1

I was bored by the booked, in spite of it's hot sex scenes. The format was predictable and followed the lines of book 1. I did love the narrator, though. I won't be continuing the series.

Oh MY!!!!!

A pretty gosh darn good follow on from the first book!!!! Again, so witty I got strange looks of askance from my hubby with all my giggling.

HOT HOT HOT scenes with a fantastic story line. Suzanne Wright is fast becoming another favourite author of mine.

I just hope more books come out quick as you please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

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.

Same as the first book, but different

These books are definitely of an ilk. If you enjoyed the first one then you will probably enjoy this one too. For me the female with a tortured wolf/male with a dominance problem dynamic with sex to match felt a bit tired and basic. However, I don't think I am the target audience. The reader does a good job of bringing the story to life.

Another Good One

Where does Wicked Cravings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really liked it - not as much as Feral Sins, Phoenix Pack but the characters are a spin off and its a good story

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved it when Jamie escaped and found herself with the help of the child which showed the true colours of another character.

Great narrator

The narrator was very good and although I do like a guy to narrate the male hero, she did a really good job. The story itself was pretty good although maybe a bit long in the middle. I love the alphaness of the wolves, both main characters were feisty and I liked their banter and the way they slowly grew to realise how much they meant to each other and how much they needed each other to heal. Looking forward now to Shaya and the enigmatic Nick's story.

No more second book prejudice lol

I have fallen in love with this series. I was very sceptical of trying this next book. For no other reason than second book prejudice lol. but I loved how this book is a completely new couples story yet still manages to incorporate all the first books fantastic characters that we already have grown to love.

Great Narration.

Great Narration.
Read through KU whilst also flicking and listening to the audible version too. What a great idea to Read and Listen. Very handy using my headphones when doing stuff around the house. I don’t lose the flow of the story.
Will be buying all the audible books over time.
I have to say the narrator for this book was one of the best with an enjoyable narration. Lots of inflections and I could tell most of the characters apart.
BOOK REVIEW
Really enjoyed reading this story and loved the drama with Jamie and her wolf, how intriguingly different.
Having two Other Women causing drama, not so much.
Jamie was such a strong character for me, her constant fight to control her wolf and even planning to have herself put down when the time came, made her someone I admired.
The way she is treated at times showed lack of empathy but was also understandable if unlikeable.
Dante didn’t want a mate, he didn’t want Jamie. Until Jamie stopped chasing him and started seeing other men, then it was all MINE.
Dante was such a nitwit/jerk and though I understood why he was emotionally closed off due to the ex, his you are mine so I can now ignore you attitude, was enough to want to slap him.
Loved how Jamie called him to task and was serious in breaking up with him and not taking his attitude.
Think the ex, Bitch Face, lol, was not punished harshly enough.
Read through KU whilst also flicking and listening to the audible version too.
I started with this author reading the first Phoenix Pack book which was okay. Months later I picked up Mercury Pack book. I enjoyed that enough to start reading them in correct order.

Engaging and satisfying

Jaime and Dante are my favourite characters of all the books. I have listened to this book three times now and I still enjoy it. I'm really hoping they get to have a pup in the future.
