Summary

I always knew I was different. 

I'd thought it had to be hidden - to stay a secret. 

I didn't know my secret would become the key to my survival. 

Turning 18 and getting accepted into college brings me everything I need to escape from the nightmares of my past but I never could have imagined my nightmares - and dreams - were just beginning. Finding myself thrown into a world of fantasy, politics, friendships, and rules that are nearly impossible to understand, I feel like I'm drowning in a world of shifters I never knew existed. As I struggle to find my place and prevent my nightmares from tearing me apart, I find myself surrounded by an unusual group of sexy men. With Hiro, Killian, Theo, Damien, and Ryder I'm trying to become the woman I've always wanted to be, if my past, and my future, will let me. 

Contains mature themes.

Amazing listen

I Dont listen to book that uses shifters as a vocal point but it really suprised it was really good, the narrators was good, loved the way the narrator used there voice to expresss the characters emotion and the authors did a good job on the plot and a excellent cliffhanger I know I will be read the next book for sure.

incomplete

it's a good start, but it cliffhangers before any plotline is concrete. books in a series should have complete independent plots that run into an over arching plot. hate feeling like I've read 3/4 of a book.

Good story / meh narration

Narration: Male narrator does a great job with the male voices. But his female voice makes the FMC sound like a bratty valley girl. Portrays the wrong personality for her. Female narrator is fine for the FMC but HORRIBLE for all the male characters. Her accents are way off. Story: loving the first book and anxious for the 2nd to be released. Great storyline and plot intrigue.

Mixed bag

I enjoyed reading this book more than listening to it because the female narrator was not able to perform the various characters well. Any character other than nix signed like Minnie mouse. The male narrator was phenomenal as he expressed many accents and feelings of the characters.

Wonderful story, inconsistent narration

I love the story, but the female narrator is annoying (she hisses her S's, it's very distracting) and both she and the male narrator are very inconsistent in their accents. The men are from all over the world and the voices used by the female narrator is nothing like the one that the male narrator uses, and they both tend to fall out of the accents in the middle of a chapter. And the Japanese character mispronounced the name of his own species, which drove me nuts each time he said it. I love the story itself though. I already have the books and enjoyed listening to it instead. I still probably won't spring for the others.
