It happens whenever wolf shifter Roni Axton is near Marcus Fuller: a crackle of sexual awareness that’s intoxicating…and deeply annoying. Marcus is a pack enforcer who oozes power, but Roni is lethal in her own right—nothing like the flirty females who flock around him. Even still, his possessive gaze makes one thing clear. Marcus has singled her out for seduction, and he wants to make her sit up and beg.

No matter how aloof and unfazed Roni acts, Marcus can tell she wants him. When a brutal attack by a jackal pack forces them to work together, it’s the perfect opportunity for Marcus to chip away at her defenses—until he falls into his own trap, completely unprepared for the intensity of their connection. Roni is the only one who’s ever seen past his shifter charm and discovered the man hiding beneath it. And for Marcus, claiming Roni once will mean needing her forever.

The Romance

Both Roni and Marcus are enforcers for their packs. Marcus is a big flirt and is known for his love of the ladies. Roni is a tough as nails tomboy.

Marcus has been circling around Roni for a while now but Roni has done her best to keep him at arm’s length. She knows that she’s not Marcus’ usual type. She’s not the pretty, girly-girl he goes after.

Roni and Marcus had messed up passes with their families so even though they might be opposites but they are a great fit for each other. I enjoyed listening to their dance and grow into their HEA.

The Action

Dark Instincts starts out with Roni fighting off some Jackel shifters after a car wreck. The action part of the plot focuses around a group of shifters running a website that shows shifter snuff films. Roni has a past with this kind of thing after being attacked by a group and almost raped on film. She and her family are still dealing with the day in their past.

As both Roni’s  and Marcus’ packs works together to find the bastards that are kidnapping shifters of all kinds and ages for the films there’s some bloody fight scenes. And one funny torture scene where the ladies of the pack torture a female Jackel for information.

The Narration

Jill Redfield is a great narrator. She is the main reason I keep coming back to The Phoenix Pack series. Redfield can deliver both the female and male characters in an enjoyable way.  Not many female narrators can pull off the male voices so well and still make the female voices sound feminine. And she really gets into those sex scenes.

  First Impression: Hot erotic shifter action. Favorite Quote(s)/ Scene: “I guess all I can do is ignore her. If that fails, I have rat poison and a shovel.”  “You should have known I love you. You’ve heard what they say: ‘Love sucks; true love swallows.’ As I recall, I’ve always taken every last drop.”  – eew What I liked: I liked seeing Shaya get her HEA after being hurt by Nick in Wicked Cravings (book 2). What I didn’t like: The stupid “jokes’ that Shaya’s bitchy co-work made about her red hair. What is she 8? It got old. Also I think I’m over alpha males that talk and talk and talk about what they are going to do to the female once they get her […]

  First Impression: Wicked Cravings brought more of the humor, sexy times and fantastic characters that I’ve now come to expect from the Phoenix Pack series. Favorite Quote(s)/ Scene: I really enjoyed Taryn’s  birthing scene. It was great to get an update on the alpha pair from the 1st book. “No, I’m done! I’m tired, I’m sweaty, I’m in agony, and why do I feel like I need to shit?” “It’s totally natural to feel that way,” said Grace in a placatory, calming voice. “Some women even have one during labor.” “What?” The word dripped with horror. “Women can shit when they’re in labor? Tell me that won’t happen to me! Don’t you let me shit, Grace!” What I liked: I love it when a girl […]
