Summary

Jem Stonehouse, a housewife with a neurotic husband bent on keeping her in line, dreams about werewolves in what she believes is a bid to escape boredom.

Sean Holloway is a werewolf, living a charade within the human race, whose mind drifts to a bond he shares with a woman he hasn't met - at least, not in this lifetime.

Apart, the two are safe but live unfulfilled lives.

Together, they'll become prey to rival packs just as they have been for hundreds of years.

When their worlds collide, and not for the first time, instinct takes over. Dreams become reality. Futures are uncertain. To keep history from repeating itself, Sean must teach Jem about his heritage, convince her of her role, and win her love.

Can Jem accept her destiny before it's too late, or is her inner wolf buried too deep to save her future with Sean?

Review of Called by JA Belfield (Audio version)

Overall I enjoyed the book and what is the love story of Jem and Sean. I really enjoyed it being about a werewolf pack and their lives. The pace of the book was a bit jarring initially and seemed to drag on a bit in some places but Im glad I hung in there as it just got better and better. I enjoyed the narrator Heather Lykens and the performance of the story. There was a slight editing glitch here and there but in the overall view it can be ignored.

Hooked from start to finish

This book was amazing, I really liked how J.A. Belfield wrote it. Jem had dreams, they seemed so real to her, the same person always there, Sean and turning into a wolf. So when she finds out Sean is a real person she feels that she already knows him, the problem is that she is trapped in an awful marriage where she is controlled. At the beginning I of the book I was so cross with Jem, allowing her husband to get away with the things he did to, however, as the book progressed I admired her, she turned into a strong woman who would not let anyone treat her that way anymore. All of the wolf pack were likeable as were Jem’s friends, the twist was really good and I was hooked from start to finish. Bring on book 2! 🎧 AudiobookObessionReviewer

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

At the beginning of this story I thought I had made a mistake. It started mundane, that however changed and turned into a very interesting, rather exciting different reincarnation pn storyline. I am impressed and looking forward to more from this series. Heather did a wonderful job bringing these characters to life. 🎧 Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Can you imagine

Can you imagine, dreaming about and your werewolf partner and finding him! Started off a bit slow, but it was a beautiful story! The narration was a bit slow so I had to speed it up a bit, this could just be my personal preference, was the first time listening to this narrator. 🎧AOR🎧

Mixed

Title: Called Author: J.A. Belfield Format: Audio Narrator: Heather Lykens Genre: Paranormal (werewolf) romance, fated lovers Standalone: Eh Part of a Series: Book 1 of 5 in the Holloway Pack series POV: Jem Steam Level: Toasty at times 3/5 Before diving into the story you need to know several things: 1. While Called completes this part of the story it definitely feels unfinished. 2. Jem is married to another man this entire book. Does the fact that Sean and Jem are fated lovers through time negate that? You can decided. Does the fact that her husband is abusive and that the beginnings of their marriage dissolution help negate that? You can decide. 3. As mentioned above, Jem does experience some violence against her (both from her husband and by other people) Be aware because I didn't see that mentioned anywhere in the description 4. It's violent with fighting and death both in human and wolf form Some positives 1. I enjoyed the banter and wit. 2. I like Jem's evolution, becoming stronger and more confident over time. I gave this three stars since I did finish it. Whether or not I'd continue with this series...I honestly don't know. However, I would recommend reading rather than listening to the audio version. The sound quality was inconsistent, often times changing from sentence to sentence. Also, listen to it sped up because the narrator reads soooooooo ssslllooowwwlllyyy. I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Fantastic werewolf romance

The storyline and the world created was different but I was enthralled from beginning to the end. The characters are something fierce in their own way and hot. I enjoyed it. The narrator did a great job. The pace was good for me. Anyways I want more from this author. Thank you.

The book description isn't great, but the story is surprisingly good!

After reading the description of this book and listening to the sample, I honestly thought this was going to be a terrible book. I was quite surprised at how soon this book grabbed me and I really enjoyed it. If I were to give a description of this book, is say it has a lot of parallels with the Twighlight Series (the movies), but isn't as cheesy and depressing. I really liked how Gem was able to walk away from Peter, who was a typical narcissist, and general asshole. I loved how, as Gem discovered her identity and embraced it, she grew in the strong and courageous woman she was always meant to be. Even though her pack kinda restricted her movements, and I did feel that she's gone from one controlling situation to another, I had to remind myself, that a wild pack operates this way and the protective and controlling bond the pack has, is what makes it successful. My favorite character was by far: Poppy! I love how caring and quirky she is! I love how she was and probably will always be a light for the downtrodden. I missed her towards the end of the book. Thank you to both the author and the narrator. Well done.

Interesting werewolf romance

I really enjoyed the plot, it was different and interesting. I did find the writing style different and was hard for me to get into but I did really enjoy it once I got into it. The narration was slow for me. Audiobook obsession
