Three hot werewolves, sexual tension thick enough to cut with a knife, an impending Colorado winter, and a rambunctious pack of werewolf pups. Stand back and watch the fur fly.
When Kenneth Marcon loses his nanny to a bite from one of his inherited kids, he knows he needs someone strong to contain five werewolf children. What he finds isn’t a stalwart nanny, but a werewolf manny named Jack. Kenneth and his assistant, Miles, aren’t sure if Jack is what they need, but he’s what they have to work with.
Jack’s got what it takes to keep the kids busy – and attract both Miles’s and Kenneth’s attention. The two old friends have been circling each other for years, but with Jack as the final piece to the puzzle, it’s time to finally act on those urges. When Kenneth is forced to travel instead of solidifying the bond with his new mates, Jack and Miles take desperate measures to get him back, even as they save the kids from one disaster after another. Amidst the chaos, they have to learn how to become not just a pack, but a family.
I think my enjoyment of this story suffered some because of the narration. I was able to appreciate that this story was meant to be cute but in the end, I found my mind wandering. As such, I will direct you to Sarina’s ebook review which can be found here. I believe I will give this one another shot in ebook format because I believe I will enjoy this one better that way.
NOTE: The start of this recording has some issues with repeating in chapter one.
This is my first experience with Joseph Morgan as a narrator and I thought it was…ok. There were some voice distinctions but not many and there was little emotion coming through the reading. Because really, this was mostly just a steady, pleasant reading of the story and it relied on the words on the page more than a performance of the work to bring this one to life. So while I thought this narration was ok, it wasn’t one of my favorites and I often found myself drifting off into space and losing time. While the narrator’s voice was good, this reading was just to monotonous to really hold my interest.
