Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Depends on whether or not they enjoy Paranormal Romance that's super spicy.
What did you like best about this story?
The world that O'Riley created, vividly described and conveyed.
What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?
Who was the most memorable character of Whiskers of a Chance and why?
I simply cannot chose just one, I have to say Jason and Keith. Jason wishes for something more and finds it not only in, but with Keith.
Any additional comments?
This is one hot tamale. Wonderful world building, the story flows well and the plot is carefully laid out as the story progresses. Neither man knows what's in store being mated to another man, but they are oh so very happy to figure it, together, as often they can and in as many positions as they can. If you're looking for a well written story that is narrated precisely and perfectly with a whole lot of lovin goin on... step right this way please.

Keith is a lynx shifter who suffers under the thumb of his autocratic father, who is also his alpha. In 3 years he will have a chance to stand on his own and challenge him, but for now he must either follow his rules or work around him.
Keith is positive he has no mate, as far as he knows there are no gay shifters, so he’s almost worried when he scents something “mate-like” on the air as he’s moving into his new house. He’s ecstatic to find that it is his mate and his mate is a man!
Jared is a little bit gun-shy in the love department. He’s been burned in the past and has a low self esteem as a result. When he spies his new neighbor moving in next door, he wants to be friendly and introduce himself. He is overwhelmed when he realizes that not only is this hot guy gay, but he’s totally into him!
There are quite a few things these guys have to work through to make it to their HEA. First there’s Keith’s very conservative (and controlling, evil, manipulative) father. There’s the whole “Introducing a human into the world of paranormals” and there is Jared’s resistance to a relationship based on the “mate bond” and his own low self-esteem.
But… love does conquer all and after some fierce fights, some fantastic alliances and some really hot chemistry… they do get their HEA.
I love shifter romances! The “mine”, that dramatic pull of attraction, the animal-like qualities that get explored, the magic… so much fun and creativity!
This follows a fairly common theme. Meet, mine, how to explain, oh-no not a human, it doesn’t matter, mine, etcetera. I did like the addition of the vampire-friend Sasha. He was fun and loyal and spunky and managed to force these guys into communicating when it looked like they were going to get stuck in the middle of a “Big Misunderstanding”.
The father was super-evil and it was nice that he got beaten down, so that was pretty satisfying. I enjoyed the “uber-skills” Keith ends up having – I love it when authors use the shifter element and actually do something with them as shifters!
I wasn’t super-impressed by anything being new or really unique, but it was a solid, fun, hot read. I enjoyed it and recommend it to fans of shifter romance.

Craig Beck is PHENOMENAL. He does all the emotion, excitement, sensual times – superbly. He’s absolutely one of my top favorite narrators. I absolutely would choose a book to listen to based on him being the narrator. I know it’s going to be a great story – regardless of the author. He can do women, a variety of accents, kids… He has excellent timing, voice quality and sound quality. All in all. Perfect!

I loved this book! I can't wait to see how the rest of them will be. Hopefully thay will be just as good, if not better!
I've been listening to a few m/m shifter stories, and this one is nice, but not overwhelming. My main problem really is that the book was only 7(ish) hours long, so I didn't get enough time to feel too emotionally invested. I get the "mate" and "claiming" thing, but the story felt like everything happened way too quick. One minute strangers, two days later official boyfriends. Apart from the lack of relationship development, it was a sweet story, some steamy chapters, and the bloke on the front cover is a babe.
Also Craig Beck's accent is like sex-chocolate to the ears.
