For a shifter…
…being stuck in wolf form is torture.
The moment I shifted; my life changed.
After witnessing a traumatic event at a young age, nine-year-old Forrest shifted into her wolf form – and was unable to shift back. Years later and suffering at the hands of her malicious step-brothers, she stubbornly clings to the hope that she’ll turn back into the girl she once was.
But when her magic returns at the moment she needs it most, Forrest is thrust back into the world of humans. There’s only one problem. Her pack is out to kill her.
Struggling to learn how to walk and talk again, Forrest finds herself on the run from the cold-blooded shifter council. But hidden deep within her human form lies a secret – a powerful magic that has the potential to set her free.
If only she can stay alive long enough to master it…

Written in British English.
Brogan lives in Ireland with her husband and their eleven furry children: five furry minions of darkness (aka the cats), four hellhounds (the dogs), and two traditional unicorns (fat, hairy Irish cobs).
In 2019 she decided to embrace her craziness by writing about the imaginary people that live in her head. Her first love is her husband followed by number-one favourite furry child Bob the cob, then reading. When not reading or writing, she can be found knee-deep in horse poo and fur while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.
She’s his obsession.
He’s her downfall.
Raised in a remote town by men who would die for her, Shanna can’t wait to escape years of being babysat by the archaic mentality of the men her father’s MC. They live by a code. A code she’s done being part of.
But even in isolated places… there are people dying to take you down.
Duke and Shanna must decide if they are going to fight for their love or watch it crash and burn when both of them are forced to make choices they can’t come back from.
How far would you go for love?
I stopped in on a whim to see the old dive bar where my old man used to spend his days–getting drunk with his boys from the MC. But when I walked in and saw her… I knew I would be back and not just for another round, but to make Shanna mine.
She’s asking for trouble teasing me the way that she does.
She’s made a mistake.
A bad one.
I’m not like the pathetic boys at her college. I’m an ex-marine, and I’m gonna make my BAD GIRL pay. But I wasn’t expecting her to put up a fight. Taming her just might be the biggest battle I’ve faced yet, but I’m determined to make it the sweetest victory for us both.
She’s my angel, but I’m her devil.
Together we’re gonna burn.

I liked the story but felt it was too much back and forth. One minute Duke is going to claim Shanna then the next he’s going to do what’s best for her. I didn’t like how Shanna couldn’t make up her mind with pursuing her dreams and her loved ones had to force her hand. She seemed a little weak. Duke was very alpha male but he was annoying trying to do what’s “right” for Shanna. They had good chemistry but I was kind of disappointed they didn’t get together for real until the very end. Overall it was an okay read and performance.

And the realization that, regardless of how the Matthews siblings have been raised, sometimes you have to follow your heart, even if it’s leading you down the hardest path.
My thoughts 💭
This book was an okay listen for me. I was kind of tired of listening to the same events but from different p.o.v’s after the first two books. Mateo and Brick had great chemistry. The narrator’s voice was okay.
As Chief of his Clan, Logan is surrounded by friends and family, the only thing missing is his mate. Natasha has always known that she was raised to be the mate of an Alpha, but being in her sister’s shadow has enabled her not to worry about it too much.
When Logan comes down to help the pack, he knows instantly that Natasha is the one for him. When she is put in harms way, he will stop at nothing to save her. Natasha never imagined that her mate would be anything other than a wolf, but although her feelings for Logan take her off guard, she can do nothing but succumb to them.
Right Girl, Wrong Alpha is the second in an all new series about men who may not be brothers by blood, but are brothers of the heart. And the realization that, regardless of how the Matthews siblings have been raised, sometimes you have to follow your heart, even if it’s leading you down the hardest path.
My thoughts 💭
Natasha and Logan…a wolf and a bear. As soon as they meet they know that they are mates but Natasha kind of runs from Logan. Logan decided to give Natasha a little time to get used to it but she gets kidnapped and all bets are off. When he feels his mate’s fear he rushes to save her. They are so cute together I just loved them.
The audio on this book is much better than the first!
Maximus has always known two things: He was destined to be the Bravo of his Pack and he’s in love with Gillian Matthews. The problem is, Gillian was raised knowing she was destined to be mated to the Alpha, who is Maximus’s best friend.
Although they’ve kept each other at arms length, you can’t escape fate. When it becomes clear that Gilly is Max’s mate, and not Mateo’s, they will all have to come to terms with the way this will impact, not just their lives, but the pack’s future.
Alpha at Home is the first in an all new series about men who may not be brothers by blood, but are brothers of the heart. And the realization that, regardless of how the Matthews siblings have been raised, sometimes you have to follow your heart, even if it’s leading you down the hardest path.
My thoughts 💭
Bravo of the pack Maximus is in love with the alpha’s intended mate Gillian. Max resigned himself to watching the woman he loves love another man his alpha and his best friend Mateo. Gillian and Mateo knew they weren’t meant to be and when he found out that she was his best friend’s mate he was happy for them. It was a cute story. I thought Max and Gillian were so adorable. The audio sounded a little weird but the story was still good and I enjoyed listening!
