Publisher's Summary

One little party turned my world upside down.

After I challenged the Blood Council's four shifter heirs at a college party, the last thing I expected was to receive a full scholarship and an admittance letter from the exclusive Wolf Moon Academy.

Despite never desiring to be an alpha, this was an opportunity of a lifetime...or so I thought.

I soon learned that there was more behind my admission to the Academy than my education. I was there to be a lesson to the heirs - in particular, the sexiest and strongest one, Liam Hale.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, it turns out that he is my true mate. A fact that should be treasured, but he makes it clear that we will never be together.

However, things aren’t always what they seem, and we all have secrets - some bigger than others. When the truth comes out it’ll either set me free or set me up for disaster.

If you can't get enough of books by K.F. Breene, Kelly St. Claire, Annette Marie, Shannon Mayer, Leia Stone, Jaymin Eve, and Laura Thalassa, then you'll love this paranormal romance.

Good

So I'm a little conflicted. I did really enjoy this book. However there are so many moments you want to flick the main character I'm the forehead. the story is still well written and I will be getting the next one. This first book does have 2 sex scenes but they are not very descriptive and pretty short. Sooo if you are looking for some hot and heavy romance, this isn't the book. But I like a mix up of romance styles so this didn't bug me. I would recommend it.

Disappointed

Recommended to me as a rejected mates book. And while there’s heartbreak from ML rejecting FL, it’s so unsatisfactory. There’s no real redemption… She rolls over every time, never actually stands up for herself around him (just lets him sex her up) and even the little sex description there is it’s all about him getting what he needs/wants. The culture is so accepting of his behaviors too which is disappointing. I think he says sorry to her once at the end… before once again having rushed, all-about-me sex🙄😡. so disappointing.

Love love love the narrator.

Addicting

Love the story line. Wish it were a little longer- more than just a couple of highlighted days- what are her other classes like. And I think the story would be just as good without all the swearing.

Great new series

Mia faces off with Liam Hale one of the 4 heirs to the Blood Council then she receives a letter to the Wolf moon academy . Of course she has to face an alpha that pretends to hate her and the resident bitches of the academy and soon she realises there’s more to the academy than her education.

A dash of everything

This story combines academy style, PNR, enemies to lovers and even a dash of bully romance all into a shifter story line! I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to listen to book 2!

A fun interesting story

I received a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

This is the second Jen L. Grey series I've listened to and I really like her books. They're light and fun with interesting characters and enough questions and mystery to keep you wondering what'll happen and make you keen to finish the series.
Vanessa Moyen narrates this one really nicely, the voices match the characters and it's easy and enjoyable to listen to. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next!

hold a grudge

Mia is a strong women but has hidden how strong she is .Mia run in with the Blood Council's four shifter heirs did not go very well they all want her dead because the think she brings trouble. Her true mate Liam has made her life hell but in the end he comes around. She has been keeping a secret that she did not know she was keeping. This book was great from start to finish. Jen L Gray brought this story to light and I can't wait for book 2. Vanessa Moyen did a great job with putting the characters to life

Great narration, mediocre story

Awesome narration. It seems Vanessa Moyen is the only person that can pull off single narration for me. Normally I only enjoy dual but she does such a great job!

Unfortunately, the story was underwhelming. When there is more relationship building between the heroine and someone besides the hero, you know there is an issue.

I just didn’t feel there was any chemistry or build up for the main couple. Like I said the h actually spends more time with a different guy who I actually liked more (as he had more personality and I knew more about him).

Even the “bullying” didn’t have much interaction or spice, it was all pranks done by other people. So they just didn’t have any interactions, it was all just her thoughts about him. Which meant I didn’t feel anything for them as a couple.

Even though it was a great high quality audiobook, I won’t continue on with the story.
