I got this book via audiobook boom. The narration was very well done. Loved Mena, Phoenix and Alex. Can't wait for the next book. The twist and turns in this story kept me wanting to shirk my duty and just listen to the whole story at one time. But discipline kept me from doing that. But when I got back to it. I listened until the end. The only problem I have with the book is the cliffhanger. I hate them. Just finish the story and create another one with the same characters. The minds that went into developing this story can write one without cliffhangers and just tie the next story to the first.

I am sooooo mad and confused right now I think it's going to cloud my judgement of this very different, very addictive and yet very frustrating paranormal romance...... because there's no happy ending in sight - just one big fat cliffhanger or 'to be continued' ending and there isn't even a sniff of the next book to wag my tail at - believe me coz I've checked everywhere!! I hate starting books with cliffhangers because, by the time the next book is released, I've forgotten a lot of the storyline and I'm sure this will be the case as this series continues. Okay, rant over... on to the review.

In the Prequel Mena finds out her husband's been cheating so she runs away.... but runs into far greater problems.... Werewolves, Witches and Vampires and she accidentally becomes the Alpha of the Pack. But before she can even rub noses with another Werewolf she's taken to safety - which is at the home of Phoenix the Master Vampire King of Montgomery who's gorgeous, charismatic, sexy and uninterested...... until he's not. The chemistry and attraction was instant and changed an aloof nine century's old Vampire King into a kind, considerate, thoughtful and loving Boyfriend.

Mena's Wolf inside her becomes a really big bitch of a problem because she wants Alex a Human Cop and, as each day passes, she's getting stronger and stronger, gets Alex and soon will completely take over Mena's body then her intentions are War against all. She has to be stopped but how? Mena battles her inner Wolf constantly.... for domination, to be heard and to be with Phoenix. Then things go from bad to worse because there's a rogue fraction of her Pack out to get revenge by destroying her and causing mayhem, Witches get involved, there's a secret that will only have one devastating outcome and there's a race against the moon to find the solution. The solution is Ace a free spirited Alpha Lion Shifter from the Las Vegas but he soon becomes a wedge between Mena and Phoenix.... a wedge that they're both going to have to accept in their lives..... but will love be enough when distance comes between them?

If this listen had ended on a happy note, or if the next book was available, then I would have been happier but instead it's left me pulling my hair out with frustration and confusion. Because I should have loved this listen.... but I somehow didn't. There was non-stop drama, action, suspense and tension, not a lot of sex and too many men fell in love with Mena who overnight went from being a heartbroken confused wife to a badass Lara Croft and then back to a confused mess again. I didn't like when Mena blamed Alex for the situation he unwittingly walked into. It did have a nice romance but it was filled with problems.... problems that caused nothing but heartache for everyone. There's lots of interesting secondary characters, there were many POV's and I usually love Pyper's narration but the male character's voices could've been stronger.

Worth a credit? Well that's a question I've been swaying between "I wish I never started this" to "Well that was an action-packed listen"..... it's different, it's got humor, it's unpredictable, it's enjoyable but it's got a scream-worthy ending..... you've been warned. It didn't leave me with that satisfied feeling, at no point did I feel happy for any of the characters - nobody got what they wanted and sorry for once I truly can't decide on the credit so I'll leave it up to you.
