Publisher's Summary

The only thing that frightens shapeshifter Selene Rhodes more than the full moon is the idea of falling in love. Selene Rhodes has lived her whole life with a terrible secret: Not only can she take the form of any animal at will, but once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-creature without a human conscience. Managing her condition means living by a strict routine, and more importantly, abstaining from intimate relationships with human beings. Selene is convinced that love and friendship can only bring her pain.

Forensic pathologist Eve Thomas is well acquainted with the pain of romantic love. Swearing off relationships after having her heart broken by a cheating ex, Eve throws herself into her work: catching murderers. When Selene comes to her aid after an attack by a masked man in Golden Gate Park, Eve is shocked by how powerfully she is drawn to her mysterious savior. Shaken by her own feelings for Eve, Selene is even more terrified to realize she isn’t even close to being the scariest monster stalking San Francisco. There is someone out in the city who is killing for pleasure, and his next target is the one woman he thinks might be able to stop him: Eve.

An excellent and smooth listen

The book was well performed and engaging. It did feel like the main characters got together quickly, and the book was aware of that fact. A lot of the relationship dynamics make sense given the context. I would recommend this to any who likes supernatural or thriller lesbian romance books.

Definitely Wild!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved it and wish that they would do all of Meghan O'Brien's books, with Alexandria Wilde as narrator. The story is erotic and different. I loved the characters and story line.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eve. She was so open-minded. Her acceptance of Seline's changing was so refreshing. Laughed and cried, My favorite story line.

Have you listened to any of Alexandria Wilde’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes and this one is just as good!

If you could rename Wild, what would you call it?

I wouldn't it's the perfect title...

Any additional comments?

Please try to get Alexandria Wilde to do Battle Scar by Meghan O'Brien and the others not on audio yet...

Alexandria Wilde makes this story interesting.

What did you love best about Wild?

The story it's self is a par-normal mystery. However, Selene one of the heroines (who is a shape shifter, for around 30 years) I find it hard to believe she has no clue nor did she ever try to find anyone else like herself since she's computer savvy and highly intelligent. (that whole premise is just screwy) Eve who is the love interest, and a medical examiner for the city is being stalked by a nut job serial killer. Selene in wolf form stops his attack on Eve. Then she goes behind a tree and turns back into her human form and helps Eve. They form an instant attraction. Alexandria Wilde's narration made this story interesting. Without her various voices for each character I don't thing I could have listened to the whole story.

Would you recommend Wild to your friends? Why or why not?

If you enjoy lesbian, paranormal mystery, with excellent narration then yes it may be worth it for you to listen.

Have you listened to any of Alexandria Wilde’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Alexandria Wilde and her narration's I've listened to many of her narrations in erotica, and novels, she has a wonderful voice and can do accents, and different genders, as well as express emotion, and passion. One of the best narrators for romance and erotica.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I wouldn't ........

Any additional comments?

I just found that with all of Selene's intelligence, and obvious capabilities and access to internet, that she never bothered to try to find others of her kind. Yes she was orphaned, and kicked out from her home but obviously she over came obstacles to get an education and earn a very good living. I can suspend my imagination on a lot of things but some how this part of the story bothered me. Again if it were not for Alexandria Wilde, this story would never have gotten me to the end. I'm not sure if a squeal is planned but at least we have the whole shape shifter thing out in the open......So maybe Selene will help Eve with her forensic work in the future. Who knows. As long as Alexandria Wilde Narrates I'd give it a try.

Good, but...

Would you consider the audio edition of Wild to be better than the print version?

Despite this being a very good audio book overall, no.Although the narration added depth to the story, some aspects of it shift my personal preference towards the print (e-book) version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild?

Nope. I'm not going to spoil that for you.

What aspect of Alexandria Wilde’s performance would you have changed?

I really liked Alexandria Wilde's narration, but Selene's "Russian" accent did not seem to match the character's background.

And while I would normally overlook the pronunciation of 'perigee' in a romance novel, I was helpless against the tidal pull of the occasional "peri-ghee" towards a culinary tangent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A hot shapeshifter romance.

Any additional comments?

Wild is an entertaining mix of romance, crime and urban fantasy.
I would recommend the audiobook to anyone who doesn't mind Selene's accent as much as I do.

Steamy...

A good read with alot steamy romance scenes, had a decent plotline which kept things interesting. And... for me it was an acceptable amount of plot vs (sex on a stick). This had a nice mystery/thiller plot pusher which I enjoy and some touching moments as well. I read another novel which was the inverse of that cough* cough* midnight hunt, let's just say it was all about (sex on a stick) vs (sex on a stick).

Awesome-sauce!

I think I have fallen in love with Meghan O'Brien. This was such a good story that I had to read it twice. I hope this becomes a series. It would be a hit.
