Erin Ashley style definitely comes across to me as a new and upcoming author. While I felt a few bumps and jostles alone the way; I can say that I look for to be something great. After working out the kinks with experience the only thing left is an amazing story, and even more impressive emotionally charged romance. Feral Instincts was positively addictive. Ava was just an average young woman that has been attempting to rebuild her life after the loss of her Mother, and only family. When she ...more

While the story was interesting it wasn't exactly "unique". Nice girl gets snatched by bad vampire. Nice girl is changed by bad vampire. Good guys save nice girl who "suffered" through a rough kidnapping and a painful change. We meet a bunch of good vampires and two werewolves who are more the hulking man/wolf you see in monster movies, than the man-becomes-wolf sort that are more popular in the romance genre. There's a reason for this Ms. Ashley, hulking men with extra hair, long snout ...more

It was interesting, but I'm really sick of love triangles at the moment.
Great story, horrible proof reading though!
Ava is a little depressed with her life not going very well and now it will be even worse as a vampire attacks her. Teagan is a werewolf who is hunting a rogue and comes upon sweet Ava chained to a bed in the transition phase of becoming a vampire. As the two come together we are able to see if two different species can come together.

we know previous lore of vampires and werewolves however this story took me by surprise. There was so much more than just the history it was the couples together an

Good start to a new series and overall I did enjoy it. One major thing that detracted from my rating was a lack of editing. I kept getting throw out of the scene in my head when I had to sometimes read things two and three times to understand. It did detract from the story and I could see where some people would find it difficult to read through the entire book. However, having said that, I will be reading the next in the series and hope that next time it won't be too bad.
If you like forbidden romances, then how about a vampire and an alpha werewolf? Teagan rescues Ava after she's turned against her will, and he fights his wolf from wanting to mate her until finally he thinks she's cheated on him with another vampire, and his jealousy gets the best of him. There's action, suspense, hot bedroom action, a jealous Alpha and the tiny vampire that stands up to him, plus great secondary characters that are continued in the next 2 books.

I give Feral Instincts five stars !! This book had me turning pages faster and faster. I couldn't put it down. It was a great read. It had just the right amount of suspense, action and love. I would definitely recommend this book to read, you won't be sorry. Erin Ashley will be added to my list of must read authors. I can't wait to read Feral Awakening !!

I did really like this book especially for the price. I just was wondering if anyone else had a problem getting the second book in the series. Amazon now has no history of the first book that I purchased from them. I need the name of the publisher if anyone has it.

Nice story but short and a bit lacking as of the originality. Couldn t really get into the univers of the characters, even though they were promising. Wish we could get to know them deeper.

Really good paranormal romance!!! The editing was awful, so if that bothers you then stay away. I know what she is trying to say. Editing issues don 't bother me. All in all I really liked it!!
