Summary

Trouble always finds Shaun Jacobs....

So, really, the sizzling hot alpha male shouldn’t have been surprised when a move to a new town and a fresh start doesn’t go according to plan - especially when Shaun’s wolf lays claim to the beauty he unexpectedly finds on his property.

Passion soars, but Cassie comes with her own brand of trouble in the form of an ex who can't take no for an answer.

To make matters worse, there’s a hunter on Shaun’s tail. One who will stop at nothing to take down the Midnight pack once and for all.

The stakes are high but Shaun won't be going down without a fight.

Shifter romance with more than the average

Cassie finds out her now ex-boyfriend isn’t who she thought he was. She goes to her childhood home for comfort forgetting her mum sold the property. When she meets Shaun the heat is turned up a few notches. Shaun is trying to get his life back on track. He’s a shifter wolf with a rocky past. When Cassie stumbles into his life he feels protective of her even though she’s fresh out of a relationship. This book has quite a lot going on. It’s an enjoyable read which keeps you guessing. The shifter details are unique in some ways. They fit well with the story. The romance is heated and primal. Shaun and Cassie have good chemistry. I also liked the side characters. The overall story is interesting and has a few twists. Can Shaun overcome his past? Can Cassie embrace her destiny? It took me a while to get used to the narrator but I didn’t mind his voice. *I received an ARC with no obligation to review but I review most things.

3.5 steamy STARS ★★★✬✩

This book is for you if… you’re in search for some easy, mindless fun with plenty of hot scenes to inspire our (single) sexy time. ⤐ Overall. First of all, the sex scenes were so steamy I was embarrassed listening to them once or twice. So in short, this is a really great book to keep you company without being too heavy - escapism material at its finest. The whole shapeshifter narrative is just the cherry on top. It's no secret I'm kinda into them wolfish dudes (thanks, Nalini) so bias cannot be excluded. Another theme I enjoyed was that of relationship trauma - as much as one can enjoy such topics. It's not uncommon people emerge from relationships with plenty of baggage - being finetuned to / manipulate to serve the needs of the partner. You can't simply shed that after being mentally abused for years. It was interesting how Cassie relearned healthy relationship behaviour and how Shaun adjusted to the special needs of his woman. In total, I feel like if the author had maybe substituted one or two sex scenes for some relationship building, she could have made the novel a lot stronger. And that terrible nickname Shaun used for Cassie - Goldilocks - gave me chills of the negative sort. Apart from that, this is a decent read - as I said, of the lighter kind - that offers an interesting but vaguely familiar take on the shapeshifter pack narrative. ⤐ What’s happening. After Cassie finds her boyfriend balls deep in her roommate, she is eager to escape the triggering town she lives in and comes across a rather good distraction; Shaun. They feel an instant attraction towards each other, not knowthing that the intensification of their relationship brings with it the opportunity for an outsider to finally get at the midnight pack - a pack of wolf shapeshifters, with Shaun in the top ranks of the hierarchy. _____________________ writing quality + easy of reading = 3* pace = 4* plot/story in general = 4* plot development = 3* characters = 3* enjoyability = 4* insightfulness = 3*

Really enjoyable listen

I really enjoyed this story. I love the slightly differing angle it looks at wolf shifters from. Mike Peterman does such a good job with the narration, I forgot I was listening as I got so sucked into the story. I have so many questions at the end of this book I need to know what's going to happen next.

Midnight Touch

The story is good of shifter wolfs, danger and mysteries to be solved. It is well read and easy to listen too. It has some explicit sex scenes in it... A little more than I would normally like but the again it's the animal passion... Will be listening to the next one

A comfort read with spark and sizzle

I loved everything about this book. The narrator has a charming voice. I felt as though he was confiding the story to me from our virtual coffee shop. I really liked the pace of Cassie and Shaun's relationship and the characters of his brothers and Cassie's sister. Some of the alpha dominance vs. female was too heavy handed for this twenty first century woman. I can't imagine putting up with it! I'm going to look out for book 2, I see 2 more love stories and I demand justice for Damian!

Shifter PNR

Shaun and Cassie's story has a lot of history, action and sexiness. Love the characters and how unique each are. A must have PNR. First book by Mike Peterman it took me some time but I like him by the end of the book.

Thrilling!

Midnight Touch was a great listen. A quick, exciting read. I loved Shaun and Cassie right from the beginning. Shaun oozes charm, humour and sex appeal. I loved how he teased Cassie and found humour in her little quirks. Their interactions had me smiling and I couldn't wait to see how their burgeoning romance would play out. The romantic angle was quickly complicated with dramatic and thrilling scenes from car accidents to near death experiences, kidnappings and murder. It was non stop action all the way. The brothers are an interesting lot. I loved the sexual tension between Deacon and Gemma and I can't wait to read their story next. The narration was excellent and I would listen to more productions by the narrator. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy

SORRY BUT THIS JUST WASN’T FOR ME

I fancied a bit of a change of pace from my regular go to Billionaire, Biker, Playboy and Rockstar alpha bad boys.. and I’ve enjoyed lots of possessive shifter romances during my many happy years with Audible.. so I took a chance on this new to me author and narrator. HOWEVER, I soon realized I’d probably made a bad decision and I can’t work out whether it was the lack of real depth to the plot, the very weak heroine, the B list narration.. or the cocktail of all three things that soured this listen for me. There was a bit of everything to the dual POV story and some good drama towards the end.. but unfortunately (IMO) it was too late to improve my 2 star “meh it’s ok” score. Worth a credit? For me personally it’s a no.. I really tried to connect to the characters, tried to feel the alpha vibe instead of a beta one, tried to feel their chemistry and get invested in their awkward journey to the HEA. But, when you’re repeatedly tempted to stop the listen or continually question your sanity for carrying on with it, then there’s no-one to blame but myself as I mourn the wasted hours I’ll never get back (.. unlike my credit).

This audible is crazy good.

This book and Mike's narration is crazy good. I honestly did not want to put it down. If I did not have to work to buy more books, I would have finished it in one sitting. Shaun is such a good character and the relationship between him and Cassie is wonderful. I love the history and character development. This is a wolf shifter story that doesn’t feel stale. The Midnight Trifecta is going to be an awesome series and I can’t wait to listen to and own them all! Mike brings the Pack to life and you get lost in his voice and the story. I normally don't like it when a male narrator does a woman's voice, but Mike is amazing. All the voices have a subtle difference and are pleasing to the ear, I didn't cringe at the voice changes. Full disclosure-when Mike swears ... you feel it in your toes. If you love paranormal romance with shifters and women becoming who they were meant to be-then don’t miss out. You need to read this series, L. Ann does not disappoint, and listening to Mike's narration will add another layer of magic to the story.

Nice Read

So much going on in this first book. Kept me hooked from the very beginning. Loved every character and can’t wait to read more about each one. I received a free copy of this audiobook and l’m voluntarily leaving this review.

Great Story & Narration🎧4.5 Captivating Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it grabbed my attention right from the start and held it captive to the very end. This is my first book by L. Ann, she is a gifted author with a great writing style and creative mind. The world dynamics and characters she created are imaginative, complex and well developed. Her storylines are original and interesting, I liked her spin on shifters and how she made it all seem realistic and relatable. Cassie walks in on her boyfriend and roommate in a compromising position, she flees and runs to her former home, before it was sold it was her place to go think. She finds a hidden key and enters. Shaun is showering in his pack’s new residence when Cassie walks in. Unsure who she is he goes on the defense, but he soon finds out why she is there, he also finds out there is a spark between them. I really liked Shaun, he has a good heart and is great with and for Cassie. While they both had their own issues, Shaun knew what he wanted, it took Cassie a little longer to come on board. This is one action packed story, I loved how everything played out, in addition to the start of a great romance there is plenty of drama, angst, thrilling suspense and twists, not only with the hunter and who it turns out to be but also with Cassie and her family. I adore the alpha male shifters, the camaraderie between them and how they look out for each other. This is the start of a great series, I am looking forward to what comes next in the series. Thank you L. Ann for this great story. I listened to the Audible edition, Mike Peterman is a terrific narrator and voice performer. He brings these characters to life, gives them their voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. He did a great job projecting the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

Captivating Adventure (4.5⭐️)

I really enjoyed Shaun and Cassie’s tale. It’s fast paced, suspenseful, sweet with a good amount of steam. Betrayal and mourning bring Cassie to Shaun’s door. From the moment they meet there’s an instant connection between the two. There’s a lot of serious issues that come up as their relationship develops and they get to know each other better but they always seem to maintain a playfulness between them that’s really sweet. I liked the narrator quite a bit. I felt he did a great job with each character, especially Shaun. I look forward to finding out what happens in the next book.

Sexy Wolf Shifters

I enjoy a good wolf shifter book. It's even better when there is a sexy wolf shifter involved. The story begins when a mysterious new guy buys Cassie's childhood house. Cassie and Shawn become mates in a not so conventional way. The book takes a turn when a hunter comes to town. The ending leaves you wanting more when both of their past cross and come back to make trouble. Can't wait for the next part in the trilogy. The only down side was the narrator was not the best at different voices.

Love it!!

Ok so I didn't think i would like this as much as I love it, due to the fact that the cover is a stereotypical romance cover. I freaking love this book. And I love the touch of comedy in it, its perfect!!

Just not for me

This seems to be a well written story. I think if I’d read it instead of listening to it I would have enjoyed it more. The narrator was just not for me.

Wow I love these wolves

These wolves have everything you could want in a story.....love, loyalty and action. You will not be disappointed if you take a chance on them.
