Summary

When half-wolf shifter Frankie Newman receives an e-mail from a family member she didn’t know existed, a secret is revealed: as a child, Frankie witnessed her father killing her mother...and then himself. Frankie was torn from her pack by her mother’s human relatives, and the trauma was erased from her memory. Realizing that she’s been lied to her entire life, she’s never felt more alone. Until she catches the scent of an old friend - warmly familiar and intoxicating. 

Trick Hardy, enforcer of the Phoenix Pack, can sense the rush of mutual attraction when he sees Frankie again. He knows immediately that she’s his true mate. But he also knows that, given her fragile state, he needs to tread with care - no matter how fierce his surging desires. 

As aroused as Frankie is by Trick’s darkly dominant air and simmering desire, her priority right now is her past - not her future, no matter how tempting. But as more secrets emerge and Frankie’s life is threatened, Trick must do everything he can to keep her close and safe. After all, it’s their destiny.

An amazing sexy, supernatural suspense.

Ok, full disclosure, I am a huge fan of Suzanne Wrights the Phoenix Pack series and it’s companion series The Mercury Pack. I had an idea of what to expect and those expectations were incredibly high!
Finally it’s time for Tricks story, and what a story it is. As with this whole series (which can be read individually but works best and it at it’s most enjoyable when read in the correct order.

Phoenix pack member Lydia has made contact with her niece Frankie ,who was raised by her human mothers parents after the death of both her parents. The only witness was a very small Frankie in the murder/ suicide of her parents and she has no memory of the horrific incident. When Frankie replies to Lydia’s message it is obvious that she has absolutely no clue about her paternal biological family (In fact her grandparents had lied to her since her parents died.) Lydia’s mother is dying after the recent loss of her mate and it is her wish to see her granddaughter one more time.

Frankie agrees to meet Lydia (accompanied by some of the Phoenix pack) to discuss the situation. As soon as Trick sees Frankie her is completely certain that he is face to face with his true mate!
While this story is growing there is also a problem from another pack, (who have been put together with a selection of violent loners and defeated packs who are threatened with death if they don’t comply) they want war with the humans and attempt to convince Trey that it is in his best interests to join their cause. Trey is not interested in war. Despite being known as a complete psycho, Trey’s aim in life is to support his loved ones, (Mate, cubs and pack) and protect their home from intrusion.
I don’t want to give more details because it would be easy to accidentally give a spoiler however I will say that this is worth every single star that I have awarded it.

I have seen prior criticism (on other books in the series) that all of the books follow a formula, and to some extent I agree that is true. However the similarities are about the very nature of shifter’s and their natural lifestyles. There is always a strong other story-line accompanying those similarities.

Jill Redfield has narrated all of the Phoenix and Mercury pack series. That is a lot of voices to master and a huge consistency challenge. Jill Redfield get’s it spot on every single time and the amount of actual acting that she brings to this story takes it to another level. Passion, intensity, fear, determination, every single emotion is there and maintained throughout.

These two really are an outstanding team.

Another great listen

Like most people im often too busy to just sit and read books. Being able to flip between books and audio makes all the difference to me. I love all of suzanne wrights books and having high quality, great narators bring these books to life makes it extra enjoyable. In Wild Hunger we are back with the phoenix pack of wolves and this time its Tricks story. I loved that in this story Trick and Frankie knew pretty much they were mates from the get go. It meant their relationship developed easily and as such it allowed us to focus on an decades old tragedy that involved Frankie and the unresolved questions around it. This book had a slight spooky(for me) shift to it. Some really creepy scenes occur in the story that are all the more scarier for being narrated! Gives me chills just writing about it! Another amazing addition to my audiobook collection. Cannot reccommend highly enough.

Good book - but getting a bit formulaic

Enjoyed this, but the series is getting a bit repetitive and formulaic so I feel like I’ve listened to the book before (even down to one of the characters having some quirky personality trait that becomes a side joke)

One of the weaker books, in this series!

Well, I eagerly awaited the release of this book, as I do all of SW’s books. I’m sorry to say that this was my least favorite book in the Phoenix and Mercury Packs series. The plot was Blaise and pretty weak. There are great sex scenes and there are great interactions with many of the fun characters. ( you even get to experience Greta drunk rambling). In addition, the narration is as awesome as Jill Redfield always is. The letdown is the plot; It’s pretty unbelievable and boring. For example, the Heroine is an independent adult whose parents died under suspicious circumstances but, rather than doing any inquiring about their deaths, she just excepts what her grandparents tell her. They even lie to her about her father’s identity. ( wouldn’t the real father’s name be on her birth certificate?) There are other weaknesses but, I don’t want to completely spoil the book. I hope SW gets back on track with the next book in the series, because this has been one of my favorites.

🌟🌟 5 Stars 🌟🌟

Another fun book in this series. While I didn't find this book as funny or sexy as some of the others, I just enjoyed this one a lot. This book has a lot of action/suspense and a great story line. I liked Frankie & Trick together and I loved that their relationship really had no drama. I won't lie though I would have liked it even more if it had been MMF.

The narration is great but I will admit, I'd like to see someone else do some of these audio because they all seem too alike when the narrator give every girl & every guy the same voice.

Disappointed in Suzanne Wright

First of all, I loved the other books. This book, however, was a little distasteful to me. The more I listened the more ridiculous the story line became. I am not sure how this received a good review. I do not buy anyone having same sex tendencies and then when they find their "mate" everything works out and everyone accepts it. When a guy cheats on his girlfriend or vice versa, that is not something that is easily accepted but this story wants you to believe that everyone is okay and it is completely normal. Nope. Just not for me. Too unbelievable!

Enjoyed it but same old story

I give it 3 stars only because I love this world. With that being said EVERYTHING is predictable in this story. Sadly to say this will be my last book from the author..

I like these books but...

Tarin normally heals at least one person a book and normally has her own unique description for how it looks visually and how she does it. It is cool. Why then was it changed to the description John Coffie from Green Mile healing someone. Not cool. overall the book felt like the author was taking shortcuts to push another romance title out. Not your best work.....

The jury is still out on this one

While I did enjoy listening to the story, I was not impressed with the recorders voice. I thought her to be too assertive in her working of how she thought the characters should be. I also could have done without all of the cursing. It brought the story line to a lower level of intellectual appreciation.

Is it time for a change ?

I've always loved Jill Redfield's performance in all of Suzanne Wright's shifter books, except for the last one. Ok and this one.

I don't know why, but I feel like I get more of each character's personality from the book, than I've gotten from the audio version. They're all starting to sound the same, behave the same, I mean if you've listened to them all, just stop and compare Trick to Dante or Trey. But ok, that's all right, I can deal with that. Here's where this book lost me ...

Frankie. I don't know if Jill is trying to make her sound cool and aloof, but to me, she just sounds flat and bored. There is absolutely no personality there for Frankie, none. She even sounds slightly monotone which is just awful. I mean, all the other characters sound lively and come through beautifully, but why is she making the female characters sound so BLAH ? The same thing happened with Gwen in Lure of Oblivion, I almost didn't finish it !

There also seems to be a little problem with the editing because I've come across pauses in recording in the oddest locations, as in right in the middle of a dialogue. Ugh, these books are slipping !!! It's sad to see that happening when there are so very few books left in both series. I hope the next one will be better.
