This is not the first time I've looked over at my partner in the middle of a book and declared "This is Porn....", but this is probably the best time.
Usually books like this one, that are beginning to redefine both paranormal fantasy and the bodice ripper genre, are written so that I just want them to be over with so I can enjoy the good bits and stop cringing in between. Not true of this story!
There was enough interesting plot and non relationship tension to make this book a book I would have wanted to read even if it hadn't been for the INCREDIBLY steamy scenes between the two leads. There were also quite a few very funny lines and quips.
The only thing I didn't like about the book was that some of the secondary characters veered pretty far into "stick figures with a schtick" territory. Most of the time this was still fairly amusing, but sometimes I just really wanted them to shut up.
Jill Redfield did a great job of bringing across the main characters voice, and reading the steamier bits without distracting from what was going on. I always feel like the best narrators are the ones you don't notice, and so I guess she did a great job, because she only made the story better.
Overall, totally worth my credit, but I will not make the mistake of listening to any more of her books with my car windows down again! Hi Kids!

Wow! Paranormal lovers, remember this name: Suzanne Wright! I'd never heard of her before, but I've already started seeking out other work by this author. This book was unexpected and amazing. While it stays within the paranormal genre, it still felt fresh, in large part I think due to the fantastic characters.
Our heroine Taryn is sassy, sarcastic and often just plain rude. This is not, I suppose, unusual in the paranormal romance genre, and these very traits, more often than not, make me grind my teeth in frustration. Often these smart mouthed heroines sound like spoiled teenagers trying to prove they are tough, but that's not the case with Taryn. Somehow, Suzanne Wright makes it work. Taryn's dialogue comes across as witty, her sarcasm is more often than not hilarious.
Trey is an alpha male you can believe in. He truly follows his wolf instincts, and I really enjoyed that. No simpering human in wolf's clothing, Trey is all beast and brawn when the need arises. While it's true that, in this book, the heroine steals the show, she doesn't do so without a good deal of help from the hunky hero.
Yes, the sex is hot, and not for the faint hearted, but it is meaningful and well balanced in this book. While there's a good deal of hanky panky going on, it doesn't feel like a book full of unnecessary sex scenes, nor does the sex get repetitious as it does in some books. It flows naturally with the story line, and that is a rare thing indeed.
Jill Redfield, oh how do I sing her praises? Her pacing was excellent, and I really enjoyed her portrayal of Taryn. When reading humour, timing and delivery are everything, and she handles Taryn's character phenomenally well.
If you like paranormal romance, chances are you're going to love this book!

Would you listen to Feral Sins again? Why?
I will listen to this book again - good mixture of strong story, humour and a hot scenes.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Taryan - strong lady - can kick butt, quick witted with a heart and a strong scene of right and wrong
What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?
Loved it - good character voices which don't change making it easy to tell who is speaking.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Loved the interactions between Taryn and Greta. Taryn's come-backs are wonderful - made me laugh out loud which really made my husband turn and look at me.

What did you like best about Feral Sins? What did you like least?
Strong characters and plausible banter.
Dropped right into an undeveloped fictional world where there are an awful lot of weres living openly alongside humans, in their own society. Would their females (presumably educated in the modern USA) really allow themselves to be passed around as if they were chattels? The female lead certainly doesn't seem like someone to tolerate it, so why should the other women?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I thought too much of the plot was given away early and, for me anyway, it dragged. And it was a disappointingly predictable plot.
What three words best describe Jill Redfield’s voice?
Warm, emotive, lively
Was Feral Sins worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
Disappointed, sounded far more promising than it turned out to be.

The characters are addictive, I've listened to the whole series at least twice. I can't wait to hear the next book (Force of Temptation)

This was my first step up into adults books. I was thoroughly impressed with the storyline and the descriptive nature and great performance achieved the result I desired 😉.
