Publisher's Summary

When half-wolf shifter Frankie Newman receives an e-mail from a family member she didn’t know existed, a secret is revealed: as a child, Frankie witnessed her father killing her mother...and then himself. Frankie was torn from her pack by her mother’s human relatives, and the trauma was erased from her memory. Realizing that she’s been lied to her entire life, she’s never felt more alone. Until she catches the scent of an old friend - warmly familiar and intoxicating. 

Trick Hardy, enforcer of the Phoenix Pack, can sense the rush of mutual attraction when he sees Frankie again. He knows immediately that she’s his true mate. But he also knows that, given her fragile state, he needs to tread with care - no matter how fierce his surging desires. 

As aroused as Frankie is by Trick’s darkly dominant air and simmering desire, her priority right now is her past - not her future, no matter how tempting. But as more secrets emerge and Frankie’s life is threatened, Trick must do everything he can to keep her close and safe. After all, it’s their destiny.

🌟🌟 5 Stars 🌟🌟

Another fun book in this series. While I didn't find this book as funny or sexy as some of the others, I just enjoyed this one a lot. This book has a lot of action/suspense and a great story line. I liked Frankie & Trick together and I loved that their relationship really had no drama. I won't lie though I would have liked it even more if it had been MMF.

The narration is great but I will admit, I'd like to see someone else do some of these audio because they all seem too alike when the narrator give every girl & every guy the same voice.

One of the weaker books, in this series!

Well, I eagerly awaited the release of this book, as I do all of SW’s books. I’m sorry to say that this was my least favorite book in the Phoenix and Mercury Packs series. The plot was Blaise and pretty weak. There are great sex scenes and there are great interactions with many of the fun characters. ( you even get to experience Greta drunk rambling). In addition, the narration is as awesome as Jill Redfield always is. The letdown is the plot; It’s pretty unbelievable and boring. For example, the Heroine is an independent adult whose parents died under suspicious circumstances but, rather than doing any inquiring about their deaths, she just excepts what her grandparents tell her. They even lie to her about her father’s identity. ( wouldn’t the real father’s name be on her birth certificate?) There are other weaknesses but, I don’t want to completely spoil the book. I hope SW gets back on track with the next book in the series, because this has been one of my favorites.

Enjoyed it but same old story

I give it 3 stars only because I love this world. With that being said EVERYTHING is predictable in this story. Sadly to say this will be my last book from the author..

Disappointed in Suzanne Wright

First of all, I loved the other books. This book, however, was a little distasteful to me. The more I listened the more ridiculous the story line became. I am not sure how this received a good review. I do not buy anyone having same sex tendencies and then when they find their "mate" everything works out and everyone accepts it. When a guy cheats on his girlfriend or vice versa, that is not something that is easily accepted but this story wants you to believe that everyone is okay and it is completely normal. Nope. Just not for me. Too unbelievable!

SPOILER ALERT - wish I could get my money back

Where in the description

does it say the hero likes more than just females? If readers want to purchase a book about a bisexual they will and editors and writers need to understand that not every reader is a millennial who assumes that the hero and heroine could be bisexual, pansexual, transsexual, etc.

The jury is still out on this one

While I did enjoy listening to the story, I was not impressed with the recorders voice. I thought her to be too assertive in her working of how she thought the characters should be. I also could have done without all of the cursing. It brought the story line to a lower level of intellectual appreciation.

My last book by this author ... same story different charaters

I am not sure I will read or listen to any other books by this author... I am not seeing all of her stories are so similar with no real charater development or change. I am sure it is hard to have a change in story with same theme but this is typical and slightly boring.

The other then bothering me is this authors subtle attempt to show us her political and social views. I am not a prude but why all the homosexual references? Wright has two same sex male couples in her world and now has references to pansexual on the male side for the main charater. I don’t understand why it seems random and inserted in stories for the sake of telling us her views. The strange thing is this author only has homosexual males reference but doesn’t write about any other diversity. No Latin, Asain, or Black charaters. No charaters with disabilities, older or with mental hang ups. No culturally mixed couples, no black women or men... no Asian women with Latin males ... nor older men or women finding mates later at 40 as main charaters .... just NO diversity.

Not sure why the homosexual male reference seems to be her sole focus . It is as though she is creating a awareness of love is love but it seems only if it is two white males or white 20 something females/males. Just my obersvation with this entire series.

Little change up is needed from both a storyline and charater perspective.

it was ok

I likes most of it but the fact that she was so understanding of Tric's sex adventures doesn't seem realistic to me. I sort of liked her to have made it harder for him or something. not jut be like Ok.

I like these books but...

Tarin normally heals at least one person a book and normally has her own unique description for how it looks visually and how she does it. It is cool. Why then was it changed to the description John Coffie from Green Mile healing someone. Not cool. overall the book felt like the author was taking shortcuts to push another romance title out. Not your best work.....

You can never "NOT" love a Suzanne book

I read this book when it was released and just recently finished the audio version..that's how much I love Suzanne.

Frankie was fed lies by her grandparents since she was 5. To find out she had another family and that she was key to a big family drama is enough to stress out anyone, but Frankie isn't stressed..now that she's found her mate...her only struggle is to make everyone happy- her grandparents, her uncle, her new found pack. Unfortunately, that is impossible. Choices need to be made and secrets need to told.

Frankie and Trick were an awesome couple. I thoroughly enjoyed watching their relationship grow..I love stories that have very little drama when the couple gets together. Frankie is very laid back and that works well with Trick's personality. When she realizes that they're mates..she just processes it and moves on. She's quirky and direct and fits right in with the rest of the pack.


I will always love the narrator, Jill Redfield. She is awesome for this series and brings the story to life.

This is yet another awesome book by the awesome Suzanne..and Jill.

An amazing sexy, supernatural suspense.

Ok, full disclosure, I am a huge fan of Suzanne Wrights the Phoenix Pack series and it’s companion series The Mercury Pack. I had an idea of what to expect and those expectations were incredibly high!
Finally it’s time for Tricks story, and what a story it is. As with this whole series (which can be read individually but works best and it at it’s most enjoyable when read in the correct order.

Phoenix pack member Lydia has made contact with her niece Frankie ,who was raised by her human mothers parents after the death of both her parents. The only witness was a very small Frankie in the murder/ suicide of her parents and she has no memory of the horrific incident. When Frankie replies to Lydia’s message it is obvious that she has absolutely no clue about her paternal biological family (In fact her grandparents had lied to her since her parents died.) Lydia’s mother is dying after the recent loss of her mate and it is her wish to see her granddaughter one more time.

Frankie agrees to meet Lydia (accompanied by some of the Phoenix pack) to discuss the situation. As soon as Trick sees Frankie her is completely certain that he is face to face with his true mate!
While this story is growing there is also a problem from another pack, (who have been put together with a selection of violent loners and defeated packs who are threatened with death if they don’t comply) they want war with the humans and attempt to convince Trey that it is in his best interests to join their cause. Trey is not interested in war. Despite being known as a complete psycho, Trey’s aim in life is to support his loved ones, (Mate, cubs and pack) and protect their home from intrusion.
I don’t want to give more details because it would be easy to accidentally give a spoiler however I will say that this is worth every single star that I have awarded it.

I have seen prior criticism (on other books in the series) that all of the books follow a formula, and to some extent I agree that is true. However the similarities are about the very nature of shifter’s and their natural lifestyles. There is always a strong other story-line accompanying those similarities.

Jill Redfield has narrated all of the Phoenix and Mercury pack series. That is a lot of voices to master and a huge consistency challenge. Jill Redfield get’s it spot on every single time and the amount of actual acting that she brings to this story takes it to another level. Passion, intensity, fear, determination, every single emotion is there and maintained throughout.

These two really are an outstanding team.

Another great listen

Like most people im often too busy to just sit and read books. Being able to flip between books and audio makes all the difference to me. I love all of suzanne wrights books and having high quality, great narators bring these books to life makes it extra enjoyable. In Wild Hunger we are back with the phoenix pack of wolves and this time its Tricks story. I loved that in this story Trick and Frankie knew pretty much they were mates from the get go. It meant their relationship developed easily and as such it allowed us to focus on an decades old tragedy that involved Frankie and the unresolved questions around it. This book had a slight spooky(for me) shift to it. Some really creepy scenes occur in the story that are all the more scarier for being narrated! Gives me chills just writing about it! Another amazing addition to my audiobook collection. Cannot reccommend highly enough.

Wild Hunger

This is Frankey and Trick's story, Frankey being part human, following her parents death she was raised by her human grandparents. So when Trick realises they are true mates he does all he can to bring her back to his pack. This causes fights with her Grandparents as she finally finds out they have been telling her lies. Read brilliantly once again by Jill Redfield.

Good book - but getting a bit formulaic

Enjoyed this, but the series is getting a bit repetitive and formulaic so I feel like I’ve listened to the book before (even down to one of the characters having some quirky personality trait that becomes a side joke)

Trick and Frankie perfect for each other

This is book 7 in The Phoenix Pack and I have been listening to the audiobook while on my walks. I enjoyed the books so much I purchased the audio of each, I honestly love this series and anything by Suzanne Wright and I'll read and listen to it again and again.

I know I continue to rave about this series and The Mercury pack and Suzanne Wright's writing but every bit of it is true. They are sexy, fun, suspenseful, full of alpha males, strong badass females, a commitment of loyalty and honor to the family they built. There really is just so much to like in these books.

As I've been going through my rereads I have been wondering who my favorite couple is and honestly I can't pick one. Because as I finish one story I always think this is the best one but then I start the next and fall in love with that one. I have no idea how I would pick a favorite if I had to. I really just want everyone to love this series as much as I do.

If paranormal romance, shifters, suspense, steamy scenes, and all things alpha gets you interested then this series and start it so someone else can enjoy them as much as me.

Trick Hardy has always known that once he met his mate he would know, he has complete faith in his wolf to let him know the truth even if he misses it. Lately, he's feeling a little lost as he has watched his packmate and their friends in the Mercury Pack all find mates his craving for his has increased. He just hopes she shows up soon.

Frankie Newman has been living in the human world since she was a small child, after losing her parents her mother's family took her in. All this time she believed she had no pack, no paternal family who wanted to know her. So when she receives an email from a lady claiming to be her Aunt, Frankie has a lot of questions for her grandparents and she needs the answers. The truth hurts and while it's obvious her grandparents resent shifters Frankie is a half shifter and she needs more than her grandparent's word after all their lies to get to the truth.

Most of the pack remembers Frankie, Lydia's niece, they also remember the awful event that lead to her being taken away. As the youngest they always watched over her, she was always so tiny but so strong. Now as she stands in front of Trick it took just the scent of her, 'Mate'.

'There you are, Trick thought with an inner smile. His wolf froze the way a predator would as he eyed his prey, watching it closely, looking for weaknesses, raring to pounce. Raring to claim what was rightfully his.'

Making Frankie his won't be easy though. With everything that has happened in the past, with the tug of war happening with her grandparents and her desire to know the pack and her paternal family, he will have to be patient and careful. All things he never thought he'd need to do when he found her.

After hearing the whole story Frankie can't believe she doesn't remember any of it, not the pack and the people she was raised around and not her parents. While Frankie has never lived up to her grandparent's expectations she has always loved them. Though they have hurt her deeply she sort of understands, so why can't they understand she needs to find out about the other half of herself.

Trick continues to insert himself in Frankie's life, as a friend and an ally while she deals with the chaos of her current situation. He can't believe he missed out on so much time with his mate but now he has her he won't let her go. When Frankie comes to realize what Trick is to her she is both shocked and cautious. She can't deny what she feels for him but she's not ready to accept all that being his true mate entails.

Meanwhile, the club is dealing with an alpha who wants an alliance, but this alpha is no real alpha and Trey won't work with someone with his morales. After an incident at the meeting, the beta and Trick clash, and now Trick is a target that will extend to Frankie. He'll hunt down the threat to keep his mate safe.

As Frankie assimilates to being Trick's and part of a pack it seems even though she doesn't have any memories of what happened her wolf does. She tries to alert Frankie to danger but since Frankie can't figure out what she's trying to tell her she's left vulnerable. The truth can't stay hidden forever and when she figures it out the real threat will come for her.

When both attacks come at the same time the two are separated. They'll have to hang on and fight to get back to one another, but will they do it in time?

Happy Reading.

Good narration.

AUDIBLE REVIEW
Narration is good.
BOOK REVIEW
Liked Trick and Frankie as a mated couple, though I did wonder how this was going to all play out with Trick being bisexual. And Yes, Frankie is a female wolf shifter. At least Trick is honest early on.
Enjoyable read and likeable plotline though it doesn’t answer all the questions.
It really is sad all around how three families are hurt by the jealous actions of others.
Pity her grandparents didn’t have the grace to even apologize for all they had done and kept from Frankie.
Well written with how the past and the present overlapped with the love triangle part. Shows that men can be just as jealous and vindictive as women.
Not happy that Bracken has a terrible thing happen to him but we have not yet read about this.
I have to admit to skimming over the sex scenes as they all seem to blur into one another and are similar throughout the whole series.
Read through KU but have bought the audible version so I can Read and Listen at the same time which was not available with this book.

***Wild Hunger***

Suzanna Wright's books are intense, raw, powerful emotion filled edge of your seat actions and twist that will blow your mind. Jill Redfield you are an amazing narrator, your voice is just brilliant.
