A sensitive wolf shifter and a vicious vampire challenge history, greed, and the very fabric of their beings in order to stay together until forever comes.
Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Hoping to find an honorable death by joining his packmates in a vampire attack, Ethan instead learns two things: Draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate: a vampire named Miguel.
More than four centuries old, strong, powerful, and vicious, Miguel Rodriguez walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they're true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent, and being together comes so naturally that Miguel can't resist for long. The challenge is keeping themselves alive so they can stay by each other's side until forever comes.

5 stars out of 5
Charlie David’s take on the character voices is HOT. So, so sexy…and perfect and…what was I saying?
This story has it all: Sex, humor, action…sex!
The world building is interesting, the pace is fast, and I loved these two characters! Ethan’s sweetness covers a core of steel and Miguel, well, Miguel is mostly steel with a tiny, tiny core of sweetness that’s pretty much only for Ethan. Their passion is so HOT! I love that he makes Miguel sound like Antonio Banderas! *rawr*
If you haven’t already – check out Charlie David’s narration of the scorching hot shifter story. You won’t be sorry!
NOTE: This is the 2nd edition - originally published in audio book on November 11, 2013 with same narrator.
"Extraordinary take on PNR"
I loved this take on paranormal. The only other time I can recall a Vampire with a Lycan was in Underworld (the movie) but it was nothing like this.
Charlie David did Miguel so, so well, the sexy *astard! He gave me chills. Think Antonio Banderas in Interview with a Vampire. *sigh*
Then he went and got his southern twang on for Ethan and it was just adorable. These two couldn't be more opposite, but they absolutely work together. I really liked the concept of Ethan's blood and how he became strong only in the arms of Miguel. It was an extra fictional flare that made their bond all that much stronger.
I adore Cardeno's imagination, and this book only proves what a great one she has. I also love how romantic her writing is. The characters are strong and soft and loaded with steamy goodness.
"Good Story but why add that music ?"
yes, good story, different.
I liked Miguel. His charater had to deal with alot.
Dont add music to audiobooks please. It was distracting....
"LOVED IT!! <333"
This author is awesome, the way the story is writen, the way you get to feel the emotion for the lot of details in there.
The narrator makes it even better!
Miguel's accent was the best! you could tell he was a 400 years old vampire.
"Werewolves and vampires?? Ok"
So I was a little surprised I got this one but it was in my recommend and its from an author I like.. I was pleasantly surprised the story was great and the development of characters and relationships well played. Only thing I'd complain about was the speakers voice occasionally changed at random like he stepped away from the mic or something. Didn't break the story just something I ended up noticing.
"Great love story"
absolutely love this story. great narrator brought the story to life. the story line between the vampire and a werewolf was absolutely fabulous it showed the struggle between choices you have to make for love.
I really didn't like how the romance felt rushed, also I felt the sex scenes were badly timed, "oh I'm about to die...guess I'll jizz my pants" "we just got into a fight with some dudes.....let's have sex" " I almost died... let's have sex." don't get me wrong I got this book because the reviews talked about the "hot sex scenes" but it was like one minute their talking about buying some land and in the same minute dude's straddling homeboys lap and getting it on. also the bad guy was so dumb and forgettable I was so angry at how sloppily this story was put together. the southern slang used kind of took me out of some of the more intimate moments of the story, you have this smooth talking vampire and then you have "Chrisley knows best" saying things like real nice like or I dun told you.
my biggest thing was why did the vampire love the werewolf so much? I understand the true mate thing but WHY? cause he was cute? and he could drink his blood?
I am mad I spent money on this book, I saw the reviews and people talking about how perfect it was but maybe there was some bias there because I hated it. I forced myself to listen because I had spent money on it which P'd me off even more.
sloppy story weird sex timing and the cherry on top, it was boring.
read this in ebook and was curious about the audiobook. the narration was great, the feelings of the characters really came across. the action/fighting seemed more exciting than when I was reading it (don't get me wrong it was exciting in the reading but even more so in audio).
"Amazing book, but not so great in audio"
I like most of Cardeno C. books and this one is my favorites. I really like the interactions between the MC's. These two completed each other. Filling in the whole in their lives they didn't even realize was missing.
Honestly, I found the narrator distracting. The book was read too fast! There seemed to be a lack of pauses and inflection providing indication of when someone was talking verses when it was narration. It was like the narrator was rushing through as fast as they could. I was turned off from this book because of this. Also the music was very unwelcome. It seemed more fitting for Arabian nights then a paranormal.
I would not recommend this book although the story itself was okay. I generally really like Cardeno C and love the narrator Charlie David but this one was problematic for both. The story itself was good, but the main character (Ethan)'s southern dialect was at best annoying and at worst horribly insulting to anyone below the Mason/Dixon line. The protagonist sounded like a stupid hick which made an otherwise endearing character annoying. That is on Cardeno mostly. Ethan should never have been written that way. Charlie David is not blameless. He made a bad situation worse. I'm guessing that David is from up north, possibly Canada, based on his accent. Listening to him do a hick southern accent was a train wreck. While the butchered southern is partially due to the writing, Miguel's inconsistent (possibly) Slavic accent was all on Charlie David The accent sounded a little like the Russian accent he did in Hot Head, but not. To make it worse, he slipped in and out of it. I would recommend reading this book in print because the story is good. Choose a different book narrated by Charlie David. He's still one of my favorite mm narrators, just not in this book. Everyone is allowed one turkey.
I enjoy Carseno C. This is one of my least favorites. Instead I recommend Perfect Imperfections.
In general, emotive, interesting, and excellent. In this book, fine (as the narrator), inconsistent (when reading Miguel), And hokey (when reading Ethan)
Take out the hokey southern accent and inconsistencies. The story itself was good.
Save your credit on this book. I suggest the Hot Head by Damon Suade or Perfect Imperfections by Cardeno C, both narrated by Charlie David. If you listen to this first you may put him on your no listen list when he's actually an excellent performer.
