Publisher's Summary

(M/M, Shifters, true mate, MPREG, HEA)

Seth Carmichael never did anything wrong, but instead of working at the local library, he was running for his life. His herd was hunting him and with few resources, Seth's options were fading fast. Until, that is, he heard the rumble of a motorcycle. Peeking through the tree he was hiding in, he couldn't believe his eyes. Had salvation come in the form of a badass biker?

Ra (no last name and proud of it) was a tiger on a mission. He'd scented his mate and then the little rabbit ran away before his teeth could engage. Ra heard the gossip around Arrowtown; he knew his mate was a hunted man. But if the sweet man was on the run, he needed someone to look after him; Ra figured he was the right man for the job.

A meeting, a mating and yet another meeting. What should have been a straight forward relationship turned into so much more on their very first outing as a mated couple. Now Ra has to count on the strength of his mate and the help of his friends, if he and Seth are ever to have the HEA they'd planned for. And what was with all these Fae turning up out of the blue?

Warning: Contains a tiger who keeps putting his foot in it; a tiny lop-eared rabbit who is stronger than he looks and a bunch of friends who’ll hide a body, no questions asked.

Hang in there, it will turn into a good listen



This book starts off rather infantile—but it gets better. It reminded me of someone trying to tell a fairy tale to a class of preteens, (both the narration and the words read,) except reality check-- suddenly there are mating scenes. After turning it off and back on twice, (I really wanted to give it chance,) it turned into a story that I cared about and had to keep listening to. Both the narration and the actual words do even out-- or mature- as it turns into a good book. I just want to encourage people to stick with it, give it a chance, it's worth it. I’m going to go buy the next book in the series now.

Fabulous

I became a fan of this narrator in previous works. When you read the story it’s awesome add in the voice and it’s a new level of wow.

Lazy Writing

I was enjoying the story despite the rushed pace and shallow backstory/motivations, but I completely lost all interest as soon as the parents got introduced.

I was expecting good things from them since they'd adopted Seth and he talked so highly of how much they loved him.

And they WERE all supportive at first, leaving the herd after hearing about why Seth was on the run, coming to meet his new mate, and the mom even offering to "adopt" the whole club since they don't have family. But then it's like the author changed their mind and decided they wanted to have "unsupportive parents" as a conflict. So the parents did a 180. In literally the same scene.

Both of them got downright nasty to Ra, insulting his art and basically flat out saying they'll only support the mating if Ra is rich, which "obviously" he can't be because he's an artist and all artists are starving, poor, crazy, sluts (heavy sarcasm on all this, paraphrasing what she said). The mom even goes as far as insulting her son's interest in becoming an author. Right. To. His. Face.

I dropped the book because of this, but up until this point, it's also not explained why the parents didn't go searching for Seth when he was on the run from the herd, even though Ra was searching for him the whole time. He even insinuates that they should have been searching too, in front of them, and they don't respond to it. Like, all this talk about loving their son but he's on the run for 2 weeks for something you know nothing about and you do nothing. Any actually loving parents would have searched for him and found out what happened.

I don't even care if it's explained later and they're "redeemed". How they've been portrayed so far, they don't deserve it. What makes it worse is it doesn't even feel genuine, just lazy writing trying to come up with a conflict.

The narrator was pretty good though, I might look for other books read by him.

Nice to have the Arrowtown series on Audible

The narrator did a much better job of this. Not too many mispronounciations and the character names are simple and straightforward and there's not much he could do wrong with Ra, Seth, Liam etc... aside from Joran.

It's a shame that Chapter 13 comes BEFORE Chapter 12!

Hinding in the tree!

Thoroughly enjoyable story of Fated Mates and finding them after having scented each other. A Tiger and a Rabbit, its a gorgeous story of True Love and all the tribulations that come along. A nice strong message as well. So looking forward to listening to this Series.
