Publisher's Summary

Cursed, mated, and in for the fight of their lives....

Warlock Nate Hawthorne just wants a cup of coffee. Is that too much to ask? Apparently. Because instead of precious caffeine, all he gets is cursed by a pack of werewolves who want to use him for his magic. Now the only way to fix the damage is a mate bond to a grumpy and oh-so-sexy alpha in the rival pack, who happens to hate him. This is so not how he wanted to start his day.

Ian Armitage never intended to take Nate as his mate. The Hawthorne family can't be trusted. Ian knows that better than anyone. The fact that he's lusted after the way-too-gorgeous man for years? Totally irrelevant. Ian's just doing what is necessary to protect his pack. This whole mating arrangement has nothing to do with love and never will. That's his story and he's sticking to it.

Nate and Ian will have to work together if they have any hope of staving off the pack's enemies and averting disaster. That's assuming they can stop arguing (and keep their hands off each other) long enough to save the day....

Contains mature themes.

Good Listen

This was a nice paranormal listen. I enjoyed the narrator and the author did a good job. I love the snark but sometimes it was a bit much in this particular case. I say this because the story is just from one character's POV. We have to garner how the other character feels by his actions and responses. Other than that, I loved the story line. A little bit of gore, action and smexy. Great narration.
Worth a credit.

Wowsa

Another five-star banger!

Holy s***, two in a row already as we move through 2021.

Look, aside from a majorish plot hole (that may get solved in the next book?? idk), this book was soooooo f-ing good.

I loved Nate and Ian. AH!!!

As usual a misunderstanding that could've been solved as children, really, got these buttholes into their current predicament-and what a predicament it is. These two were sort-of-friends at one point as kids, but then everything turned to s*** and they grew into messy adults. </3

I'm a sucker for the enemies-to-lovers trope, which is kinda weird, because it's never been something I cared for in the past. Or at least, nothing that I actively sought. But now? I'm into it, I guess. And these two knuckleheads did not disappoint.

Nate is a warlock, or rather, would've been one had his jerk of a father allowed him to fully embrace his powers instead of siphoning them for himself. I'm not sure, but I think Nate is sexually assaulted at the beginning of the book. The author doesn't elaborate on the "failed bonding," but that's what it sounded like to me. So CW if that's something you need to know. He has a lot of self-esteem issues due to his past trauma, and watching him work through them is difficult at times.

Ian is an alpha werewolf. If you've ever read a book with an alpha werewolf you know what you're getting. But something happens at like the 80% mark of the book that changes everything, and Ian stops being such a huge prick to Nate. The misunderstanding I mentioned? Yeah, that gets brought up and both of these dudes are like WAIT YOU THOUGHT WHAT? THAT I WHAT?

This book deserves a listen and a re-listen because what comes off as Ian being a complete f-ing jerk will probably sting a little less now knowing why he does and says the things he does (and Nate really shouldn't have called Ian stupid all of those times or taunted him for being a big dumb werewolf, bc totes unfair).

Bah. I loved this book. It's short enough to read/listen to on the couch in a day, and it keeps you on your toes literally the whole time. I know because I was up until 3AM listening to the darn thing, then got up and finished the book after I made coffee.

I can't wait to listen to the next one. So many books, so little time!

fun & light

The cover had me thinking this might be a bit serious, but it's definitely not. This is a straightforward fun romance, no heaviness or angst. I usually prefer angsty slow burns, but I loved this anyway because it's well-written & pulls you along for a quick, light bit of fun. Great happy escapism! The playfulness suits the fast-paced, shorter format. Consistently funny, too. The romance develops a little too quickly for my usual tastes, but it suits the story's easygoing style.

I would have liked a couple more chapters at the start with more interactions between the leads before it jumped off into action so that their romantic declarations, new friendships, and internal thoughts felt a bit more established/earned, but it was easy to suspend my disbelief on that part and keep listening because of the playful style of the story.

Narrator is great! No complaints.

Omg, I love it

The story is wonderful, the characters are wonderful, the emotion is wonderful, and the narrator is wonderful! I’ve been in such a book slump lately and nothing has been able to hold my attention until I started listening to this! It hooked my attention right away, and it didn’t let go.

Meh

I have a weak spot for paranormal romances, especially when the human and supernatural worlds seem to intersect in mundane ways. But this book left me pretty disappointed. There really isn't much in regards to world building or setting the stakes, you don't know who is who or why things are supposed to work the way they do. The characters are bland and you don't really get to know them anyway. Is it the worst book I have ever listened to? No, but it really doesn't do anything. I just wish Audible would let me return the title, guess I am just out $13.

Warlock talks too. much.

The author got carried away with the Warlocks "whitey " repartee ! Too much becomes annoying.

the narrator improved as he went along

not so for the writing. I listened for the sex scenes and to hear what happened. It was poorly written, too many f-bombs. Also too many sneaky comments even when there was a serious matter. I am returning this ASAP.

A miss for me

Had very little flow. The hook wasn’t there to pull me in. The narration was second rate. Lots of yelling to portray emotion when yelling isn’t the right medium. I will not continue the series. Need a good series…anyone?

Definitely recommend!

Listened to this with my husband on our way to Philly this weekend. This was such a fun, smutty, mlm story of were-lore and paranormal romance. If you like enemies to lovers, one-bed, and mate romances, you’ll really love this one!
