Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison

Thanks to his good-for-nothing brother, Andrew Hughes is up to his eyeballs in debt and needs a job fast. When a nursing position opens up in Myerson, Arizona, Andrew has no choice but to take it, despite a warning about how difficult a patient Caleb DiMartino can be. Andrew can deal with a little trouble—but Caleb’s strange family, the armed guards, and the unknown cause of Caleb’s mysterious illness may be beyond his skill set.

Landslide by Mary Calmes

For three years, paranormal courier Frank Corrigan has been working for incubus demon Cael Berith. Cael knows Frank is his mate, but Frank is pretty sure Cael doesn’t even like him, never mind want to spend the rest of his life with him, so their personal relationship is at an impasse. When Frank’s sister, Lindsey, gets bitten by a werewolf she’s sleeping with—and possibly witnesses a murder—Frank rides to her rescue. If he’s lucky, he might just save his love life too.

Story Review:

Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison 4*
This was a fun short story about a nurse being thrown into life with wolves. Sent to care for a patient with a father who was supposedly difficult to deal with, Andrew found himself taking care of an attractive man with a mysterious illness. As the story progressed, Andrew discovered wolf shifters were real, solved the mysterious illness, gave in to his attraction for a patient, and got embroiled in his brother’s addictions which also lead to a family betrayal/greed plot. This story was short yet interesting. I enjoyed learning about these shifters, their world, and figuring out the mystery of who the bad guys were. The mating was unique and sweet and made for a satisfying read.

Landslide by Mary Calmes 5*
I loved this one. Demons, werewolves, and human curriers, Oh My! It was a unique world with lots of politics and power struggles. But what I loved the most was that Frank was treated the best by his demon mate. A man supposedly evil was kinder and more loving than any human Frank has ever encountered. Frank was such a great character and I immediately connected with him so I was glad when he finally gave in to his demon and found his true happy. I loved that Frank was a bit soft around the middle and that his demon found that softness sexy. The humor was well done and gave this a very lighthearted feel.

Narration Review:

I have enjoyed most things Jeff Gelder has narrated. I like his voice and he is alway easy to listen to and clear with his characters. This time however, there were some awkward pauses as if he lost his place or was just reading things for the first time. There was also an echo throughout the entire recording. It was still a good listen.
