Summary

She’s on the run.

She’s being hunted.

If only she knew why.

Trey’s only goal is to protect his pack. When a young shifter female moves into his territory, it raises a million questions. Who is she? Doesn’t she know how dangerous it is to travel alone and unprotected? Where did she come from, and what kind of danger did she bring with her?

Time is running out as Gabby’s first transformation nears. Trey must walk a knife edge between protecting her from harm and convincing her of what she is.

He also has to convince her she isn’t going crazy so she will give his pack a chance, and maybe give him a chance. After all, shifter females are scarce. They have to be protected at all costs.

Failure is not an option.

But will the rabbit hole she's tumbling down prove too much for her to handle?

Gabby

Writing: 3.75 Narration:5 Stars Overall 4 Stars

I have spent so long looking at my screed and trying to decide how to word this review. The plot for Gabby had an immense amount of potential and while parts met that potential, other parts did not.

The story was a little confusing in parts and it took a while for the story to fully draw me in. Now don’t get me wrong. When the story got going I was drawn in and really enjoyed it. There are some interesting characters and I really was rooting for Gabby to wise up and blossom as a character.

Trey is pack alpha and he and Gabby meet when she is on the run and does not realise the danger that she is in. She has no clue what she is running from or why. Trey is walking a tightrope, trying to protect Gabby.

One of my favourite genres is paranormal romance, especially shifters, I am pleased to have found this new series and hope to pick up future additions that come to audiobook.

Jacq Ainsworth’s narration was fantastic. With clear character differences and vocal acting that drew me into the moment.

Trey!

This is the first book of the Safe Haven Wolves series, although it can be read or listened to as a standalone as each book is about a different character. This book is all about Gabby and Trey. She doesn’t know what she is, she’s on the run, unable to understand why people are chasing her and Trey the alpha of a pack takes her in knowing that she will have her first shift soon, but not letting her know about the wolf pack just yet. He also knows she is his mate. Females are very scarce and well protected amongst the pack. What will happen when she finds out and when she eventually does shift? You will have to listen to it yourself to find out.
The narration was great and pulled me into the story very early on, the plot and character development was great, I did like Trey a lot, the way he is described I think hot, protector, buff, yes, please!
I really enjoyed listening to this and will definitely be continuing the series.

Gabby

"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."
I really enjoyed this book. I am a fan of shifter stories and this one has a twist to it that I have not seen in other shifter books. Highly recommended!!!!

Exceptional narrator

The narrator does a good a great job. One of the characters is really hyper and loves to talk, which comes across exceptionally well. The voice range from old to young, male to female is wonderful.
Gabby and Trey get a happy for now ending because she is still.searching for her missing family. I am excited to listen to more!

Great series begin

I was initially put off by this book. In my narrow-minded way of thinking, I thought a book that had a wolf alpha male as a lead character should have been voiced by a man. While I still think that, this book is a definite exception.

The story surrounds a girl who flees, does not know who from, and then finds herself living in the midst of a wolf pack. A wolf pack that she neither knew existed or that she was a member of. That may not sound like the genesis of a great story but believe me, it was. The writer kept us on a string waiting until Gabby was able to put the pieces together of her true identity. It was torture and the stuff of good writing.

The narrator, though female, handled this story and characters very well. She had very strong female voices and her male voices delivered.

There is a great set-up for book two and I look forward to knowing more.

This book was given to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

wanted more . . . full world, full characters

I want more. Questions. Answers. More. Gabby was strong, resilient, young, lost, confused, consumed. This was titled right. This was all about Gabby. Her young life turned upside down. Left int he dark. Lost. Found. Saved.

This was a quick read and getting to know you of the Safe Haven Wolves. To be so short there was a lot here.

Jacq Ainsworth did the job of giving life to each of the characters and making them feel more real. The audio brought this to life but the story felt rushed.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Sherry Foster. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

On The Run, Not Knowing Why

On the run from men, who had a distinct odor, and talked of keeping her locked up until she’s 21, Gabby hunts for her twin sister and the rest of her family.
Distrustful and afraid, unknowing what is going on she wanders onto the territory of the Safe Haven wolfshifter pack. She knows nothing of shifters, and she is a unicorn as a lone female unmated shifter herself. The few femaleshifters are protected and guarded due to the lack and difficulties with reproduction.
What goes through Gabby’s mind, her new friend Stormy who is too cute and Trey, the alpha, discovering she is his mate makes for mystery, suspense, action, story building, world building and romance.
Love this story and am anxiously looking forward to more.
The narrator was fantastic keeping me in the story and feeling for the characters!

great shifter read

I received this book for free for a honest review. I loved this take on wolves. Gabby was strong, scared and independent. I felt like I was there with her. The author did a great job of keeping you interested and the storyline flowing. The Narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. highly reccomend

Meh

I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and now I’m voluntarily leaving this honest review.
The narrator was excellent. I felt she captured the characters perfectly. The story was just okay. It kind of dragged on and just when I thought we were getting somewhere it stopped. Lacked character development and story depth. I don’t think I will be reading more of this series.

Solid series start

Gabby serves a dual purpose. On the one hand, it is its own story of fated mates, but on the other it is an introduction into the world of Sherry Foster’s Safe Haven Wolves. This is a world where wolf shifters are very much a secret, and females are scarce. The premise for this series is quite intriguing. Sherry Foster took a romance trope that has been done and done again and made it into something refreshing and new. Along with that comes a fair amount of world-building, and I appreciated that the building is done organically throughout this first book in the series. There were no long-suffering information dumps to contend with, and the natural flow of things made it easier to absorb the rules for Foster’s world of wolf shifters.
The characters are very well done. It’s somewhat of a coming of age story for Gabby and Trey. She’s on the run from and enemy she doesn’t know, and he’s trying to be a good alpha despite his lack of training. Sherry Foster gives us the many emotions this pair experiences by way of Jacq Ainsworth, who does a superb job of projecting those feelings in her performance. Both Gabby and Trey are likable and relatable, but I have to say that my favorite character had to be Stormy. She is an absolute hoot, and I found myself laughing more often than not any time she showed up. There are several secondary characters to get to know, and Jacq Ainsworth does a good job of keeping their voices distinct. I did notice a few discrepancies in voice, sometimes in the same sections of dialogue, but it wasn’t so much as to distract from the story.
The plot of Gabby is a bit convoluted, or it seems that way, but I felt like part of that was intentional to keep some of the story’s secrets until the right time. We do get a satisfying conclusion, at least for this couple, so there are no jaw-dropping cliffys for those who don’t appreciate them. That said, there are unanswered questions in what appears to be a continuing story arc for the series. That’s where the suspense and danger come in. This first in the Safe Haven Wolves doesn’t have much in the way of on page action, but it does give us a steadily building tension and overall feel of mystery as Trey and company search for answers about Gabby’s pursuers.
Our narrator, Jacq Ainsworth, does a fantastic job overall. Other than the few discrepancies already mentioned, she manages to give distinctive voices to several characters along with many emotions those characters experienced. Ainsworth’s performance is coupled with some excellent sound quality, which was greatly appreciated. It’s a completely smooth listen from start to finish.
All in all, Gabby is a well done, entertaining story, and a solid start for a promising series.

Finding her truth

Gabby is a fast paced sexy well written paranormal romance book. I loved how the characters were developed as the story went on. I loved the plot even though for a minute it was a little confusing. I wish we could have seen the connection between the characters grew. I received this review copy at my request and I voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Good story

I liked the story but I feel like it was missing key feelings between Gabby and Trey. The narrator was okay. It took me a couple of chapters to get into it. the male characters sounded more monotone but liked her voice as Gabby. I think the book would have been better with a male and female narrator.
