Publisher's Summary

Jessica Macks is a she-wolf on the run from a band of murderous rogues. When she finds a job at a shifter bar, it seems like a safe haven from her hunted life on the road. But the minute she walks through the swinging doors of the Blue Moon Saloon and comes face-to-face with the man she once loved, she's tempted to march right back out. No way, no how is she risking her heart to that infuriating alpha bear again.
Simon Voss thought he had lost everything in an ambush months before: his home, his family, his past. His new job at the Blue Moon Saloon is a desperately needed fresh start. Then along comes Jessica, the irresistible she-wolf his clan forced him to reject years before. When Simon is obliged to hire Jessica and work side by side with the one woman to ever make his bear go wild, he's half in heaven, half in hell. He hasn't forgotten her, and she sure as hell hasn't forgiven him. Is this just another path to heartbreak or his last chance to claim his destined mate?
Behind the doors of the Blue Moon Saloon, alpha shifters confront their darkest fears and their deepest desires. Each book is a complete standalone story - no cliffhangers!
A paranormal romance with adult content. The perfect audiobook for fans of strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, red-hot cowboys, romantic westerns, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, and fantasy romance!

Wolf shifter and bear shifter on the run find love

I am voluntarily reviewing an ARC copy of the audiobook the author graciously sent to me.

After the decimation of her pack by a band of rogues, wolf shifters Jessica Macks and her sister feel blessed to find jobs and a home at the shifter bar, Blue Moon Saloon. Ready to stop running, Jessica is looking forward to a little peace in her life, so when she sees bear shifter Simon Voss, the only man she ever loved, standing behind the bar, her first instinct is to turn around and run. But Jess and her sister have been running for too long.

Simon Voss and his brother returned home to find their entire world lost too the night Jessica's pack was attacked. After hunting down all the rogues involved in the ambush they could find, Simon and his brother were left with nothing but survivors' guilt and the need to start over. When Simon sees Jess walk into the bar, he is thrilled by the knowledge that his one true mate is alive, but devastated by the sinking feeling that she will never forgive him for the months leading up to the attack. Will Simon be able to convince Jess that even though what he did was wrong, he was trying to act in her best interest? Will she ever forgive him and allow him to claim her, or are they destined to forever live and work side-by-side in their current state of heartbreak?

This story has lots of drama, action and romance.The concept of romance between a bear shifter and a wolf shifter is an interesting take on shifter romance with promise for lots of interesting plot complications. The chemistry between Simon and Jessica is hot, hot, hot! Yet the characters are not uni-dimensional--they are sensitive and real, and the depth of pain they carry is palpable. In Simon's case in particular, the amount of misplaced guilt he carries as a result of being away when his pack was attacked is tragic. In addition to Simon and Jessica's romance, Damnation's plot features action that makes the story exciting and allows us to see the main characters' bravery and heroism. The narrator's crisp, feminine voice is particularly well-suited to the passages told from Jessica's point of view, but was adequate for the entire story. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this first book in the Blue Moon Saloon Series, and while this installment felt like a complete story with a definitive ending, the plot showed promise for interesting future stories featuring some of the other characters. Anyone who enjoys shifter romance with lots of action and strong female leads will enjoy this first book of the Blue Moon Saloon Series.

If you could sum up Damnation: Reckless Desires in three words, what would they be?

Sweet, Intense, Addicting


What did you like best about this story?

My favorite part of the story would have to be the fire. I know, I know the most terrible thing to happen during the book is my favorite part? The intensity between the characters during the fire had me sitting at the edge of my seat.


What about Kelsey Osborneā€™s performance did you like?

I really loved Osborne's style. She didn't try to over-do a southern accent like many performers do and the twang came out almost naturally (as it should for the characters) in some of the words. Her voice is clear and crisp, it gave more life to the story and differentiating between characters was a breeze.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The fire was the most moving part for me. As Jess ran from the fire, calling for her mate, my heart twisted. I felt what she felt.


Any additional comments?

This book is one I would definitely recommend. I was hooked from the first chapter and will definitely be picking up the next one in the series. I really hope Soren gets an audio book, he's intriguing and I sooooo want him to find his HEA.
