Publisher's Summary

She's a lone wolf with a cause.
As a volunteer at a shelter for lone shifters - the same one that rescued her - Makenna Wray has dedicated her life to finding homes for its residents. And when she discovers that a teen in her care is related to Ryan Conner, the broody, handsome-as-sin enforcer of the Phoenix Pack, she's eager to help connect the two. She just wasn't prepared to feel a connection of her own.
Lone wolves are loners for a reason - and most of them bad. Or so Ryan assumes until he meets the mysterious Makenna. Quirky and sensual, she seems to enjoy riling him, especially when she refuses to discuss her past. Although there is no mating bond, he's sure she's the one. All he has to do is be patient and wait. But when another pack's sinister Alpha comes sniffing around, threatening Makenna and her shelter, this enforcer is ready to let his wolf off the leash....

Great book under $8

Savage Urges is my fifth book in the Phoenix Pack series and I really enjoyed the book. Author Suzanne Wright had quite the great series going on here. Her writing style just draws me in and her characters are just so top notch. She definitely has a something worth listening too here.

Oh my gosh, I just loved Makenna and Ryan. She’s strong, fiercely loyal, and just perfect for Ryan. Ryan, oh my. How can someone be so sexy while being broody! They both have some serious hurt in their pasts but instead of destroying them, it just makes them so much stronger. Mixing them together, her sassy quirkiness and his my face may break if I show emotions, had my alternating between laughing and sighing. As good as the sex is between them, and it was REALLY good, it was their more personal moments that got my heart all aflutter. It’s not all smooth sailing for them. He’s convince she’s his mate and she doesn’t want to get hurt again, another pack tries to take over the shelter Makenna works out, missing relatives, lost loners, and so much more. Throw it all together it makes for a very hard to put down entertaining listen that ends in the best HEA.

And now for a little PSA. I really need to commend the author on her representation of the lone shifters. Whether it was intended or not, loners were described similar to the way most people think homeless people are. Shifty, bad, evil, they are homeless/loners because they choose to be. Showing them as not all bad but more of victims of their circumstances whether it is abuse, abandonment or forced out. While this is not my first book containing loner shifters, it is the first where they are not some horrible destructive force. Thank you Ms. Wright!

Any PNR fan, especially for shifters, will enjoy listening to Savage Urges. I love both and I know I have. Just make sure, unless you plan to stay up all night, to not start listening to this book before bed. You may find yourself struggling to put it down. Yup, it’s that good. Can’t wait for the next book!

Jill Redfield is one of my favourite narrators and she was outstanding with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Love the Phoenix Pack!

This series is great and never disappoints. Ryan, Mr. Serious, Phoenix pack enforcer is the one with cupid's arrow stuck in his fur this time around. He's not against finding his mate and doesn't fight it at all which is a nice change from his stubborn pack mates. However, his mate is a bit stubborn herself. Lots of obstacles to their happiness, including past baggage, a seriously slimy alpha, anti-shifter zealots and more. An excellent addition to the series.

Jill Redfield is one of the best female narrators out there. I love her male and female voices, and her narration amplifies the writing and brings it to life in a way words on a page just can't. She had a couple of extremely rare moments where her sentences faltered just a hair, but I think this is the first time I have ever heard her be less than perfect, so it just makes me happy to know she can have an off day just like the rest of us mere mortals. I always appreciate her ability to communicate the right emotions, whether they be humor, lust, desperation, suspicion, exasperation, nastiness or love, in a way that enhances the story and makes it better.

The heat factor is pretty hot, though this one seemed a slight bit tamer than the others. The series as a whole is a 9, but this book is around an 8 on a 1-10 scale of, "Is it hot in here?" Also, as always, books in this series are a great deal at under $10 each, so save the credits, and rejoice in the awesomeness that is a great price on a full-length novel with no cliffhanger. This entire series is an absolute must for any paranormal, shifter romance lover who doesn't have a problem with sizzling bedroom action involving seriously hot, controlling, alpha males with dirty minds, foul language and deliciously filthy actions.

I paid cash money for this audiobook, I'm glad I did, and I'm gonna do it again when the next one comes out! BTW, all my reviews are unbiased, whether I pay or get it free.
