This is my favorite of the L'Ange series.
I loved that there is a plenty of page time for the other MC's from the series, but that the story focuses on Jon and Kelvin.
I loved the community and feeling of family that suffuses the story...but mostly I loved the hell out of Jon and Kelvin.
Mary Calmes sure knows how to deliver a good shifter story. There's no shortage of mates, suspense, and bloody times in this one. The boys work for their HEA, and it makes for an thoroughly entertaining listen.
Tristan James does a terrific job with the character voices, especially Kelvin's Scottish brogue, pacing, timing, and voice over.
This is a great shifter story, especially on audio, and the series just keeps getting better.
NOTE: I would not recommend this as a standalone. I would definitely recommend the others in the series before listening to Chosen Pride.

I’ve been waiting for this for SO LONG! I ADORE this series in both it’s written and audiobook formats. I listen to them frequently so I feel like I know these guys personally LOL.
Jon started out as a sort of “bad guy” in that he was meant to seduce Roman (to get a promotion) but couldn’t because Roman was in love with Quade. Jon seems like he’s lazy or at least without direction, but Roman sees something else in him and decides to “keep” him at L’Ange. Then we see him again when he travels to New York to help Arman with Linus’ revenge and there’s where he meets Kelvin.
We got a delicious hint of their matehood there and thus the anxious waiting for this book!
Kelvin is a wolf-shifter who (we find out) has a specific set of (TERRIBLE) rules to follow regarding his station. (Mary’s wolves are NOT noble creatures in general but rather barbaric – which is funny because her Hyena and Jackals are very noble!) He’s never been with a man and (at first) feels he can’t be with Jon due to his job title and the subsequent duties associated with his title.
However… there’s some pretty exciting twists and turns which put our poor heart-broken Jon in the same proximity as Kelvin (who’s also hurting) and their mate-bond cannot be denied.
But before all that – there’s a wrinkle – and this wrinkle had me scratching my head and wondering where the story was headed – and that has to do with a certain assistant Linus hires.
(I’m not going to elaborate because that’s the fun of reading the story yourself!)
In any case, it’s a Mary story, so you know it’s good. You know it ends happily. You know there’s going to be some violence and some excitement. (WOW – yes there is!) Fans of the series will get to see more of our previous MCs – I LOVE LINUS so much in this!!! And Arman has a scene that brought me to tears.
Highly recommended for fans of the series and the author, but I would read books one and two first (because they are awesome and because they add so much to this story.)
4.25 of 5 stars
Totally as awesome as expected! MMMMMMM. Tristan’s accents are so, so delicious and Kelvin is absolutely fabulous! You’re going to want to get this as soon as possible if you haven’t already. Tristan James makes this series one of my all time favorites and I can listen to it over and over. Now we get another one to add to the rotation and WOW it’s got so much going on – absolutely amazing.

Holy wowzers! Such an amazing book from Mary Calmes yet again. The storyline turned out different to how I thought but it was even better. I have loved Tristan's audio throughout this series, and with The Marshals too, but this one..
.when his accent goes Scottish. Just wow. If he could do a whole book just like that. I, and probably many others, would very much appreciate it lols :-)
Thank you both Mary and Tristan for an amazing audio experience with this book and series. I have truly enjoyed it and highly recommend it!
