Lovely Story

I loved the story, although the narrator was not pleasant to listen too. Having read the story on Kindle I found that although giving the characters life, the way the story was read did not add to its appeal.

Great story

Love this story and have read it previously. Enjoyed the audio version, but a bit thrown off by the way some words are said, a little like the narrator has a plum in her mouth.
Once I got passed that very much enjoyed listening to kem and Lia s story unfold

The Dryad’s Pawprint

This book is a bit of an insta love story with swim drama thrown into it but you kind of expect that when it is a shifter book with mates. I liked listening to this book as the narrator did a good job at pulling you in.

A fantastic story

I loved this story which i feel was nearly ruined by the narrator. It was my impression that she was an American trying to do an British accent which at times really didnt work. There were many times when i nearly stopped listening but wanted to find out what happenedso pursed and I am glad i did. A lovely short story that got you involved from the first paragraph.

She’s the one

The Dryad’s Pawprint is the first book in a series of five. This can be read as a standalone romance, however the back story of the paranormal council is continuous.

Kem met the women of his dreams but only got one heated night with her. He’s been looking for ever since. When the paranormal council summon him. He thinks the woman that got away is gone forever. He’s to be married to strengthen the paranormal link between species. When he see the women in question he realises there something more precious at stake.

5 out of 5. Good narrator, heated romance and a bond worth fighting for.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A Nice Love Story

I thought this was a nice and quick story, but I found the narration hard to listen to. Unfortunately, the narration wasn't something I could get past. I think this novella would be better read than listened to. I would have loved for this story to have been a bit longer.

Shifter Romance

The Dryad’s Pawprint by Laura Greenwood is a shifter romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sandra Parker.

I just love Laura’s books! They always leave me begging for more! I cannot wait to dive into the second book The Vixen’s Bark to get Arabella and Bjorn’s love story.

Sandra did an amazing job on the narration. I just loved her voice. I cannot wait to listen to more projects she has worked on in the future.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Paranormal Romances.

Enjoyable listen with good narration.

Sandra Parker narrates these characters beautifully. In fact I forgot I was listening to a book and got completely sucked into the story.

This is a lovely story, on the lighter side yet still has some steam (which is perfectly blended into the story). The world feels fully formed and I really would like to carry on with these characters and the world they inhabit. It's short but fully formed and an enjoyable listen.

I just wanted more.

The story and the narration were really done well for this story but I wanted more. I understand this was a quick read but it just wasn't enough. This was a book where I wished for more to connect with anything.

It was easy enough to follow and if you are looking for a quick read without making any connections this I would definitely recommend this book. For me though, I couldn't feel invested. I wanted the couple to work out but that was really it. Why was it important that the Dryad's were on the council? It was briefly mentioned but wasn't explored. There was so much in this story that could have been expanded on but it just felt too short.

Sandra Parker did a fantastic job narrating this and I really enjoyed listening.

The Dryad’s Pawprint

This was short, sweet, and sexy listen. The shifter and dryad have a chance meeting then go a year searching for each other. Their 2nd meeting seals the mating.

Cute short paranormal story

This is a short story about an alpha male and a dryad find each other and realize they are mates. It’s a short story so there isn’t a whole lot of world building or character development. But if you go into it knowing it’s a short story you won’t be disappointed because this book was so cute! I loved the characters!

Sweet shifter goodness!

Narration is good. Nice tone to her voice. Clear performance.

Cool idea with the panther shifters and the dryads. I love the whole mates thing as well. Kem and Lia have a sweet connection with some passion. They had a moment about a year ago, but haven’t seen each other since then. When they meet again, the pull between them is still there, but there’s one little problem; the shifter council wants Kem to marry Lia’s sister. Lia and Kem are understandably upset by this. Both characters were great, and I liked how both characters were honest with each other. Entertaining, quick story!

Great start to series

I received this audiobook free as an Audiobook Obession Reviewer, for an honest review. This story was short and to the point. Amazing how this author can give you a complete story in just an hour and a half. So looking forward to more books in this series. The narrator did a great job with the characters and the story.

So Sweet!

Again, Laura Greenwood gives us a sweet and sexy short story.
I love the idea of seeing your soulmate and only having one night with them. To only see them a year later to fall into each other’s arms once again.
Just so sweet.
Narration was good and made the story just that more enjoyable. 😀

Short and steamy

I enjoyed the story. However it was more like a prologue or so I hope. I can see it being a great building block to an interesting world and characters I won’t mind getting to know. Also the steamy bits are nice and steamy.
