My ReviewsHeat, Heart, And Secrets!

The RED Wolf is #02 of 03 in Werewolves On Heat Series by Ellie Valentina.

Meghan Kelly narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are all in the same world, however I have yet to find any other connections. As of now, reading them as standalones should be OK.

Length: 4 hrs and 47 mins

Content Advisory:
There is sex, so if that bothers you then you should avoid.

♥ Story ♥

I was not able to find any direct character, location, or group connections between books one and two. If anyone has other info on that, please let me know. Both have werewolves as well as the heroine having majorly F*d up family situations. Josephine’s family life is not as heart breaking as Ava’s, but just as suspenseful.

Josephine ❤ Edward

Josephine Lancaster had a one night stand at her BFF’s wedding that left behind a gift of its own. Before she could process that fact, her father let drop his plans to be marry her to his much older business partner for better financial gain. Horrified, Josie ran and ended up getting a job with the last person she could of imagined, the father of her baby. Despite her bravery in avoiding a sham of a marriage, she turns into a big chicken when it comes to telling her baby-daddy the truth.

Edward Jake Hunter has secrets and trust issues of his own. After being used and manipulated for his gifts in the past, he is suspicious of most. Jake owns a construction business and is in desperate need of a new assistant, and is shocked to find the beautiful wedding fling as a potential hire. He wants her as much as before, but has reservations. Being the most qualified, he has no choice but to hire her. He knows she is hiding something, but is hoping its not as sinister as past experiences.

One might think they know how this is going to play out, but you would be wrong. The RED Wolf is so much more. There are several twist you won’t see coming. The secrets flow out at the speed of molasses, which can be a bit frustrating. It pays off if you can hold on and you will be left on the edge of your seat in the interim. There is heat and heart, and you won’t be disappointed. I was hoping for a side character to be the focus of the third book, but sadly, I don’t think that is the case. Maybe one will show up in a future book or spin-off series. Fingers crossed! 🤞

Normal speed was fine, but I found slightly slower sounded best. I listened at 0.95 speed. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

First Impression:
Oh how I loath thee Agent Smith! We meet yet another Wilding. Their pack is the main focus of the next series which Piper’s brothers get their HEAs. Piper is a bit more tame than Terra Wilding from the first book, but still just as stubborn. Jace has been beating himself up over something he can’t really remember, and of course he thinks the worse of himself. I have to give Piper credit though for calling him out on it and for trying to smack some since into the man. Even in hypnosis, it’s been show you won’t act on something that is against your moral core. Looking forward to Jarod next!

It’s a new take in shifter mating. A good start to a triology about 3 brothers. Agent Smith is one sick bastard that I want to stab in the face, but that is the sign of a good author. Looking forward to reading the rest of the family. This series takes place in my home town which is always awesome! Witches & Weres, what a great combo!

First Impression: I liked it. Nina is growing on me. She is becoming funny instead of annoying. I really loathed her up until this book. This series really needs to be read from the beginning for the full experience because it just gets more and more crazy with each book. I mean this in the best way, but I did need to relisten to some chapters to get it all straight and I have listened to the previous books.

First in her new series. A lot take in but also lots of promise. Have to relisten to get all the details down. Many story lines set in motion as well as a note from the author about this new series. I’m glad the non-shifting brothers grab the author’s heart as much as they did mine and I hope they finally get to shift and mates of their own in future installments. Looking forward to more of this series.
