Summary

Mars is a rising star in the bear shifter Nomads MC. He has just two days to claim his Fated Mate before their bond disappears, and they have to survive a group of human traffickers who want to take them out.

Mars Donner is tall, dangerous and brutally loyal. His golden eyes melt panties and make men get out of his way. He'd done his fair share of dirt, and even put a few people in the dirt, but he had lines he wouldn't cross. As long as he had his MC, his cut and his hog, he thought he could get through anything. Then he met his Fated Mate, and he knew there was no line he wouldn't cross for her.

Annette Vogel is an investigative journalist and no stranger to chasing a story. Freshly back from Afghanistan, her therapist tells her that she needs to take it easy, that working through PTSD is a process. But adrenaline junkies don't take it easy, and when she gets wind of a human trafficking circle she has to go after the story. But crossing those kinds of people can have deadly consequences, especially when the story starts chasing her.

This full length bear shifter paranormal romance novel has all the action, steam, and true love that only a Fated Mates story can deliver! I've included some other stories as my thanks to you.

Awful Narration but good book

I ended up just reading the kindle edition because the lady narrating did not do this book any credit at all,her voice of the men were cringe worthy, I will be buying the other books but the kindle edition although I have noticed the narrator changes in book 3 I will see .

Fun Shifter Romance

Mars and Annette had great chemistry and their romance was pretty steamy. Something that I found hard to overlook was the fact that the MC members were drug runners. I found it quite odd that Annette didn't seem to have a problem with that. The club did redeem itself somewhat by rescuing the human trafficking victims. It was nice to see that they had some semblance of a conscience.

I'm a little torn when it comes to the narration. Overall Audrey Lusk did a pretty good job but I really didn't care for the voice of Mars. For the most part I enjoyed this action-packed romance story and would recommend it.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is my honest opinion.

Good Book!

I was given a credit by the author to review this book honestly, well here goes...
I did enjoy the story and the characters. I would say it was a must read if i had only read the ARC. But since i had listened to the audiobook, i have to be honest and say i did not care for the narrator's voices of Mars and the other bikers. The narrator was trying to make him sound masculine and gruff, but it just came off as growly and annoying. So that is my take on the audiobook. Do with it what you will....

Great shifter listen

Loved the blend of the MC and shifter genres. Fast paced and filled with suspense and heat. Fantastic narrator, she had a unique voice and tone for each character. She also really captured the emotion of the story. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Motorcycles and bear shifters... yum!

What could be sexier than a bad boy bear shifter with a conscience? Not much if you ask me. Mars is a great lead male character, he confident without being arrogant and he;s respected for his actions, sign me up!

Annette is more than a handful, both physically and mentally. She's strong she's opinionated and she isn't afraid to tell someone that their plan is stupid.

The chemistry between them is hot and fun to listen to, except that part where Annette's v-opening is refereed to as a 'gate', seriously? A gate? Talk about dumping cold water over me, not good.

I get that with mates the attraction is immediate from the bears side but I thought things happened unrealistically quickly from Annette's side. Pheromones will only make me buy so much, and this pushed my limits.

That said I enjoyed listening to it and I'd listen to other books in the series.

The narration is well done, the pace and tone of the delivery is well done and the character voices were distinct and easy to recognise.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Wow. Mate Heat Hits Fast!

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

Lucky, lucky Annette. KaPow! and the biggest, hottest man is all hers. Mars is meeting a reporter to discreetly leak the news of human trafficking and one meeting of their eyes and the mate magic takes over. Annette is just looking for that big breaking story and ends up with a big bad bear. The trafficking is real though and eventually Mars and Annette will face it. Annette is ex-military and can handle the heat but will her PTSD stop her?
Great short story with a lot of plot.

Audrey Lusk has a sultry, I’m sexy and know it, voice. She pushes it a bit too far in the opening lines but quickly falls into a more believable, yet husky voice. She does both sexes well. A professional at execution.
