Summary

This fourth installment of the best-selling Running in Fear series opens with the escape of Cecilia Windstream from scientists who had kidnapped her and her family when she was only 16 years old.

Six years of living in a cell sure can be hell on a girl. After escaping, all Cecilia wanted to do was die, but unfortunately, the snake DNA that had been injected into her wouldn’t let her, and neither will her new mates.

Tug Brimstone was an alpha wolf by nature, but even he wasn’t as powerful as his alpha, Remi LeBlathe. Happy to be the new headmaster in their jointly owned BDSM nightclub, Tug wasn’t looking for anyone, but fate had another plan for him. In less than two days, he finds he has three mates, two of whom are part snake and part wolf, and now, he’s tempting fate by injecting snake DNA into his own body so he can mate with them.

Rory Sherwood is mate to Tug Brimstone, Clayton Glands, and Cecilia Windstream. How can one tiny female who has been beaten, experimented on, and is a virgin overwhelm him to the point where he forgets his own name and get him to change his DNA just so he can mate with her?

Clayton Glands, the muscle behind the National Council of Wolf Shifters, has hidden a family secret all his life, but in less than 24 hours, he has found his mates, exposed his secret, and gained a son.

In a one-week time span, three alpha males -Tug, Rory, and Clayton - must protect their female from the scientists she had escaped. Not only is her life in danger, but so is her son’s, as well as the future of every shifter around. The war against good and evil is coming to a head, and their journey is just part of the story to come.

Steamy!

Cupid's Venom is about new couples, Cecil and her mates. Jaycee and her mates are still very active characters in this book. The heroin, Cecil was taken experimented on and severely abused. Her mates are super supportive and protective.

Cupid's Venom is a very steamy paranormal shapeshifter menage romance, involving MFM scenes. The plot and character were good, they could've been more developed. However, the pace is a bit off. Action is also limited.

Jones did a great job narrating this audiobook. Overall, it was an okay listen. Due to the pace, I had to rewind more than a few times. This series is for a mature audience (18+) only, be warned.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Surprisingly fantastic twists!

Book four in the series and it’s is fabulous! This story had my heart and emotions on overdrive. There are a lot of twists and turns throughout this story that kept me on the edge of seat. I don’t like to give the actual plot lines in a review for fear of giving away an important detail. I have to say that the storyline is fantastic and will have you spellbound to the story. I definitely enjoyed listening to this audiobook.
The narrator (Michelle Jones) does a spectacular job with the characters and voices of each character. Her voice will draw you into the story. Until this series I hadn’t listened to this Particular narrator but I’m so glad I did.
I definitely recommend this book/ series.

Excellent story

Cupid's Venom is an excellent story that combines romance, intrigue and a little mystery. I love the development of the characters as the story plays through. The descriptive language brings you into The author's world. The narrator was phenomenal. I received this audio book upon my request and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Enter a New Power Couple?

The more of this series I read, the more I love it! Jaycee and her hottie mates still play a large roll in this book but we also get introduced to Cecilia, Tug, Sam and Rory. Cecelia has had an absolutely awful life since she was kidnapped with most of her family at age 16. When she arrives at Pack headquarters, she has all but given up. With bad guys on her heels, Tug bundles her into his arms and Shifter magic happens.

I adored how the story developed and the fun, family and love that once again, bound the Pack together. The action is endless, the sex is smokin' hot and the love is tender. Don't miss it!

Remember these books are for mature readers only. 5 Stars Overall

Again, so many great things to be said about Michelle Jones and her narration. Individualized voices help build each character and had me falling in love with them more and more. She truly had a perfect voice for this paranormal style of writing.

Extremely good

I found this audiobook to be extremely good. It has a great combination of suspense, drama and romance. The narrator does a wonderful job of reading this book.
