Has an actual plot

Mack and Casey were made for each other. This is a well written paranormal romance with an interesting plot. It has great characters and a HEA.

What a wonderful story

I finally got to read the story that was before Rook. Always wanted to know how Casey and Mack got started. Great story line that will keep reading until you finished. Alot of action, but with love and romance. A MUST read.

Awesome Romance story about cat shifters

Casey is an orphan, misfit, and opt out of the foster care system. She has been living on the streets for months now. Mack's her mate, the alphas son, and a leader in his own right.

These two characters are independent, sometimes funny, relatable, and sexy. The plot is unusual because her father it's an alpha of another pack and wants her back. There are some twist but it makes enjoyable reading. I highly recommend this book.

Miranda Lynn weaves a tale that has many twists and turns. The hot alpha male/shifter, the young shifter girl that does not know she is a shifter, and the danger she faces will leave readers wanting to read straight through until the very end.

I was gifted the privilege of beta reading this book and let me tell you I so enjoyed it. This story line is so different from my other shifter books I've read that it caught my interest from the beginning. The author has a wonderful way of telling stories and I hope she keeps writing for a long time as her stories are one's I so enjoy. If you are a lover of shifter stories then you should love this book

New shifter world.

I loved this story. An orphaned girl finds out she is a shifter, and has to absorb her new life quickly as war is coming. This story is fast paced with witches, wolves, tigers, and panthers, in this new shifter world. I would recommend this book to anyone.

The drama of the story drew me in and I had to know how it turned out. I loved Casey and Mack and couldn't wait to figure out how he was going to make it work. He had a lot of work ahead of him. Casey is a strong, independent beauty. I loved her as the heroine. Great book! Can't wait to read more.

If you could sum up Mack in three words, what would they be?
Steamy, Action, Fantasy

What did you like best about this story?
The author does a great job of grabbing my attention so that I had no trouble focusing on just the story and let everything outside my little world just disappear.

What about Brian Callanan’s performance did you like?
He was the perfect voice for Mack. Mr. Callanan made the story very enjoyable. You don't care that he doesn't have the type of voice for a female character. He l

I received this audio book as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Miranda Lynn. The gifting of this audio book did not affect my opinion of it.

I really enjoyed getting to know the well-rounded characters in this novella. Having the audio version really made this book more enjoyable I believe, than just reading it on my Kindle. I've read shifter books before, and I hvae to say, this one is one of my favorites when it comes to that

Casey is a repressed shifter and a loner. Soon she won’t be able to deny her shifter side and Mack is determined to find her before that happens.

The relationship between Casey and Mack is interesting. There was plenty of sexual tension build up but the payoff was somewhat lackluster in my opinion. Still, it’s a solid paranormal romance and an enjoyable listen. Note: Some may feel that this story skates the line ethically because Casey is Mack’s adopted sister. Although they had been separated a

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Getting familiar with the Black Mountain Pack was fun. Taking part in the search for Casey. Feeling her fears while she knew someone was following her. Her learning who and what she was. This was engaging. The story was short and had much for Casey to learn. Her comprehension of the things around her and the new world she was now a part of. I would like to see what direction things go in now that the lost has been found and returned back home.

Well, that's different, I've never read a book where different shifter breads lived in the same pack/pard, it made for an interesting story line.

The story is well written and it suited to people who love shifter stories and have read many and new comers to shifter stories. The explanation on how it all works is woven into the story.

I really liked the characters, I thought they were well developed and realistically presented.

I have to admit I haven't read a shifter book in some time but WOW what a shifter book this one is. It's for sure not your everyday shifter book. Mack and Casey are some very well developed characters for a novel on the shorter end. They both have a story to tell and one to make. We for sure have some great scenes in this and the twist are pretty dang awesome. Fair warning it does leave you wanting more with the way the book ends. No spoilers but this is a easy book to read in one sitting and en ...more

DNF 18%.
I’m not honestly sure why there are so many good reviews. It’s confusing, the writing seems very stilted, and I seem to be the only person who picked up on the line from Mack regarding Casey that read: “Cassandra and I share the same father, but we do not share the same mother. We are only half brother and sister.”
So either the author doesn’t understand that half siblings are not the same as adopted siblings, or the author is writing an incest relationship. Or am I just misunderstanding

This is fast-paced read with a writing style that pulls a reader in. I was a bit leery at first with whole sister or mate thing, but as the story progresses and things come together, it makes more sense. The romance of shifter mates, some shifter politics, a bit of magic, and a war between packs keep the story flowing nicely, and the characters and relationships between pack members were interesting, creating a solid start for a series.
The only drawback for me was that I felt like some areas of

Each author decides her own rules and parameters for the world she's creating but Ms. Lynn has kept to certain shifter conventions such as clothing comes off and shifting is physically painful. Where she differs from many is in the combined packs/prides concept which adds interest to an already engaging story of a foster child aging out of the system and trying to survive the mean streets.

Narrator Brian Callanan [AUDIO] did a terrific job with voices, especially the hero, Mack, and, with the aut

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. The author and narrator did a great job in bringing this paranormal story to life. It was hard to put down once started. To find out the powers Casey possessed was exciting. I love seeing strong women in a world full of obstacles. Seeing the compassion in Mack was heartwarming. Such a big, sexy person/animal was a turn on. The narrator did a great job with the characters, both male and female. The side stories were great as well. Looking forwa ...more

This was an amazing book, I loved all the characters. It was a very well written story and flowed at a nice pace. I really loved Mack, he was awesome. Casey was a great female character, she was sweet. I definitely had a hard time putting this one down, I can not wait for the next one.

Short and lovely read

This was a short read about Mack and Casey. Casey is unaware that she is a shifter. At first Mack thinks that she is his long lost sister but as the story unfolds we find out that she is not. She is his true mate. Her father is an evil man and wants her dead. She learns to shift quickly and finds out that Mack is her shifter mate. They mate, have hot sex, they fight and they live HEA. 3 stars.
