    Hurting is part of life isn’t it? So is happiness”Primal Bonds is the second book in the Shifters Unbound Series Jennifer Ashley has done a stunning job creating a magical world with Shifters and Faes The first book introduced us to this world were humans are striving to control shifters through collars These collars are attached to their skin The person wearing the collar receives a shock if they try to show any sign of aggression Boy can I think of places that would come in handyjust kidding Shifters are forced to live separately from the human world Andrea is a half Shifter half Fae hybrid She was forced out of her clan because she didn't want to mate with Jared the son of her clan's leader The only way to escape that claim was for her to be claimed by another Lucky for her Sean Morrissey is available and happy to help Sean is the guardian of his clan and protects the sacred sword which is used in time of death The sword has Fae magic and helps release the spirits of the fallen Shifters to the next lifeAndrea is a spunky heroine and has no trouble waging verbal banter war with Sean The two share an immediate connection and the sexual tension is high from the first page of the text Andrea suffers from nightmares and Sean conveniently steps in as her protectorAndrea laughed again the sound softer as she relaxed back into him Sean held her in a safe embrace cradling her like a cub until she fell into limp dreamless slumber”Andrea has so many emotions dragging her down She has never felt fully accepted due to her half breed status Additionally she never knew her father Now she is being called from her sleep out in to the dark where something is lurking there“We’ll figure this out love” he said “I won’t let you be hurt” SeanAlthough Sean has made the mate claim on Andrea she must accept it There were several elements in this read that set this book apart from the first in the series as well as other books that I have read in this genre I found it refreshing that time wasn't wasted on the uestion of IF Andrea would accept the claim Instead it was a matter of when and how I thoroughly enjoyed the peace in knowing that these two were going to be together “It’s a damn scary thing claiming a mate I want to protect you all the time and never stop” SeanAs Sean and Andrea are working through the beginning of their relationship trouble is brewing all around Humans are attacking Shifters Clans are battling for control Liam is working towards staking claim as the new leader of his clan Dylan Sean and Liam's father is struggling with his desire to take Glory as his mate I felt like we received a bonus romance in this read because of the background conflict between Glory and Dylan However the true magic in this story is between the two main characters I enjoyed every minute of reading about Andrea and Sean For her clear gray eyes for her sweet curves for the way she said his name For the way her clothes clung to her body for her sense of humor for her buying him underwear with smiley faces on them It was the way she smelled the way she liked coffee and the way she winked at the Shifter groupies in the bar and left them speechless It was her Fae scent and her fine skin her breath her warmth and the fact that she walked upon the earthOverall Primal Bonds was a fantastic read It had action intense plot development interesting characters and a great deal of heart Jennifer Ashley has a fluid writing style that shifts seamlessly between the different points of view For me I find her characters are the key to the success in her books I just can't help but want to read and find out how they are doing and what will happen next There are always times when I am reading PRN that I want to roll my eyes a little at the craziness of it all And yet it is in those moments that I relax and enjoy the journey into another world If you are a fan of PRN you should definitely check out this series You will not be disappointedHe already loved her with intensity that made him insane but right now he loved her than ever Andrea understood exactly what was going through Sean’s head as he watched Connor struggle knew exactly what Sean needed She was offering Sean a solution with her brave generosity She was his mate all right

    Review re posted on Got Fiction?I got this as an ARC from Jennifer Ashley who fully rocksIn the world Jennifer Ashley built in Pride Mates I went through so many emotions I loved the characters and I was pissed at our government for not allowing the Shifters the same rights and freedoms we humans have In Primal Bonds those feelings intensified I went through several moments where I was furious that the Shifters couldn't have cel phones or cable or computers let alone the freedoms we enjoy But that is one of the best reasons to love this book The segregation of Shifters being shoved into Shiftertowns the separate drinking fountains the we don't serve your kind comments this book is so much than a paranormal romance Sean Morrissey is the Guardian He wields the sword that sends Shifter souls to the Summerlands And it's a lonely job When a half faehalf lupine shifter needs out of her Shiftertown the only way is for some male to mate claim her so no other males can sniff around her Sean is tired of being lonely Sean feels that while he may never lack for a bed partner he has yet to find a woman who wants than a fun romp Mate claiming Andrea Gray was the best thing Sean could have ever doneAndrea has spent her whole life being told she is nothing Her mother died young and her step father loves her to pieced but he's not very high in his pack so he doesn't have any say The Alpha's son Jared is constantly berating Andrea and smacking her around for any reason he can find His favorite is that she looks him in the eye He's an Alpha she's at the bottom of the pack; she should look down But Andrea is no submissive wolf When Jared starts stalking her and leaving her little dead presents she finally tries her best to leave She has soo much red tape to cut through to get out since we humans feel the need to take away as much as possible She can't even drive or fly she has to ride a bus from Colorado to Texas But having Sean mate claim her might get her out of her Shiftertown but it doesn't mean Jared will let her goAnother thing I loved about this book is that Sean and Andrea did have tension and hot sizzling sexual chemistry but they liked each other I enjoyed watching them learn to love each other So often it is You my mate We have mate heat We have The Sex now This had so much than just thatThe trials faced were than just dealing with their budding relationship an obsessive ex and the government keeping Shifters down There were also the Fae Yep remember Andrea's father is fae But wait there's We also have Shifters mixing things up and humans doing drive by's And the Collars I won't say anything else about them but remember in Pride Mates they tried to take them offI'm just sayin' And yet with all of this going on I was never confused Jennifer Ashley writes such a smooth and seamless story that anyone will enjoy And with this book it's so easy to forget what's going on in real life like little kids who might need dinnerahem or so I've heard because I would never forget to feed my kids The Shifters Unbound series is on my auto buy list and it's a shame I have to wait til next year to get the next installmenthttpwwwdemonloversbooksandco

    Another great re read and now I'm up to where I was in the series when I stopped I am very eager to continue onto the third book now that I am refreshed I am also pleased to report that my ratings for the first two books stayed the same as when I read them a few years back And I still think that Jennifer Ashley is a genius when it comes to writing stories Her shifter world that she has created is addicting and I love visiting it each time I open her books In this installment we get to witness what it is like for Sean to be the Guardian of the Sword It his his job to set the shifters spirit free in death It is a lonely job as not too many female shifters want to become a mate with someone who has that responsibility For this reason Sean decides to claim Andrea a wolf shifter from a clan elsewheresite unseen As soon as they do see one another though their mate bond flares to life and they become extremely protective and possessive of one another Not all is as it seems in shifter town though and there is about to be a huge betrayal of the clans that goes down Shifter town will be rocked to its coreMy only reason for giving this one a four stars was that there was a part in the book where Andrea and Sean weren't togetherThey weren't broken upthey just were in different spots The ironic thing is that even though this is a pet peeve of mine in this story their absence from each other wasn't near as much as the present stories do to couples So I would even go as far as rating this one a 45 starsas it really wasn't awful when they were separatedit fit with the story and like I saidit wasn't them being broken up or anything like thatSo It is me just being a picky btchLOL

    4 Shifter StarsI liked Primal Bonds than the first book but there were parts that were slow and parts that were entertainingFirst off the series is not steamy It’s kind of tame and that’s a little disappointing There are some slow parts that made it a little hard to read I put the book down a few times and picked up other books I liked the beginning and the end The middle I didn’t care for too muchI’ll be honest and say I didn’t really care for Sean in the previous book The whole guardian of the sword thing is an odd storyline and the fact he let his brother die in order to protect the sword is kind of sad Who does that?I did like Andrea I liked that she is half fae and half shifter it was different I liked how honest and down to earth she was The book isn’t too angsty and I liked that too The tension between Andrea and Sean was nice but I didn’t really see the chemistry I felt like it went from like to lust in 90 seconds I usually like those sort of things in shifter books but I couldn’t get sucked into it like I usually doI do like Sean’s dad and the whole Glory storyline that was cuteOther than that This isn’t my favorite shifter series but I will continue with the series I think there will be some hit or misses for me I just need to find them

    Jennifer Ashley is brilliant No seriously Let me explain why I used to love paranormal romance books I read everything there was and I sucked up all the stories of love between creatures and love between creatures and humans ok that sounds really gross but you get my point right?Then I started to see a pattern 1 There must be a hunky alpha male with some type of bad in him or in his past He’s going to be dangerous but so damn gorgeous it does not matter how dangerous he is 2 There must be a dumbass female who eventually gains wisdom and understanding via life’s trials and tribulations OR she has hunky alpha male see #1 to save her dumb ass3 There is a misunderstanding Usually this misunderstanding is due to a lack of communication on the dumbass females part She knows something doesn’t tell hunky alpha male and due to this misunderstanding usually a secret there is lots of unneeded dangerNow how is this book different?SEE NUMBER 2 Andrea is not a dumbass female She’s actually uite witty fun and pretty damn alpha in her personalitySEE NUMBER 3 Yes I’m happy to say that Andrea Gray tells Sean the truth I saw where Jennifer Ashley could have gone with this book The author could have kept one scene I can’t explain it – it would be a spoiler that Andrea was in a secret from Sean Instead Andrea tells Sean everything I was like WTF Andrea doesn’t act like a stupid “paranormal romance” chick and keep the secret she just goes ahead and tells him everythingThere was no major conflict between Andrea and Sean In fact the only problems they had between each other was that she was very headstrong However Sean actually admired her for that Instead the major conflict is the situation they are both in with the ShiftertownI loved that Jennifer Ashley didn’t play it safe Because of her risks she makes this book so much enjoyable

    25 StarsI’ve finished Primal Bonds obviously and all I’m left with is a vague ‘meh’ feeling It seems like I never fully engaged with the story I never really cared about the main characters the way I wanted to and I felt that everything was a bit too pat to really enjoyWe open the book right in the middle of the action I usually enjoy this but here I found it a little confusing We were introduced to the heroine Andrea like we were supposed to know her already so I spent a couple minutes skimming through the previous book Pride Mates trying to find mention of her I guess she’s completely new but with how long it had been since I read the first book I thought I had just forgotten about herI found it odd to be dropped into the middle of a mate claim I know the reasons that were given for it but I never understood the attraction between them It was just there and we were supposed to run with it The accelerated relationship was one of my problems in the last book but at least I felt the connection there Here they just seemed to spend a lot of time panting for each other with no real reason The distance I felt toward them made most of their relationship feel false They spent a lot of time having sex or thinking about having sex and it almost seemed like a substitute for developing an actual relationship I didn’t hate them but I found the side characters interestingSpeaking of side characters I’m glad we got details about Glory and Dylan I really liked them in the first book so it was nice to see development there I was very pleased with Glory for what she did but I felt it all worked out a bit too uickly in the end I hope that’s not the end of it and that we get to actually see them talk and work out some of their issues in the next bookI really liked that the author strayed outside of the shifters and introduced us to the Fae The world Collars and Shiftertown details were one of my favorite parts of the first book so it was nice to see it expanded here I thought it was interesting to get to see a shifter’s perspective out in the human world and wish we could have seen a bit of that There were some things that set Andrea apart because of her Fae heritage and I hope we get detail on that eventually I’m curious to hear why it’s different for her Yes that was vague on purpose The book was a uick read but I felt like a lot of issues were solved too easily I never really felt an air of seriousness or worry about the resolution of the problem with the humans and that was echoed in the easy going joking manner that everyone had I didn’t want conflict for conflict’s sake but it felt like issues were stopped short before they actually got meaty That goes for Andrea’s interactions with a certain mystery guest that kept cropping up as well It just all was a bit too easy for meFavorite uoteBikinis he said I knew itWe're strangely fond of each other's underwearI promise not to wear yours if you don't wear mineReview originally posted on Fiction Vixen

    The audio was fun I like the Irish lilt the narrator gave to the Morris’s Andrea and Shawn are a cute couple Nice how he gives her time Nice to learn about shifters with their power plays and structures My original rating stands though the narration is outstanding Rated 4 Stars


  9. Ami Ami says:

    Oh I would love to love this book since I enjoyed the first one in this series; but somehow the story just didn't deliver Maybe it wasn't the right moment for me to read it or maybe because I felt like I was missing the romancing that I ended up not caring for the two characters When the story started Sean already took a mate claim over Andrea A character that had not even appeared in the first book I felt like being shoved into a plot without a warning it was a huh how did that happened reaction from me It didsn't give me enough foundation to like the relationship even as it went along I felt disconnected with the story I also didn't really care about the action storylineTruth be told I skimmed almost half of the book then jumped to the last chapter to finish it I didn't feel sorry that I missed out probably the solution to Andrea's heritage or the humanshifters or coalition that seemed to attack other shifters Hopefully the third book is better But this one it's already forgotten shrugs

    I was lucky enough to win an advance reading copy of Primal Bonds from Jennifer Ashley's facebook pageOnce again Jennifer Ashley brings us to her Austin TX Shiftertown in Primal Bonds book 2 of her Shifters Unbound series Here we find the Feline Shifter Sean Morrissey Guardian of his clan and powerful member of his pride Sean's job as the Guardian could be a really lonely one When his neighbor's niece needed to relocate from her Shiftertown in Colorado seeking shelter he offers her his protection When Sean met her he found a little Lupine Snifter that could look him in the eye That was the last thing that he had expected And he had just mate claimed herHalf Fea and half wolf Shifter Andrea Gray had long become acuainted to looking after herself but she needed a new protector in order to escape an unwanted mate claim She thought that a Guardian would fit the bill nicely However she wasn't expecting the intense attraction that she felt for her rescuer when she first looked into his blue eyesAndrea struggles to keep her mating of convenience platonic Sean plans to turn his mate claim into the real thing Will her mixed blood and troubled past as well as her stubbornness keep him from truly claiming his mate?Jennifer Ashley truly outdoes herself in this novel She made me feel hate sadness and elation as I read her words As in the first book in the series discrimination and prejudice is clearly addressed and challenges the reader to look at a fictional situation and perhaps see the similarities in our own culture I for one appreciated the way that she addressed the volatile situations as or hero and heroine fought in all ways to be by each others sides The story easily sweeps us along on Sean and Andrea journey to their HEA And a HEA is what they get in this awesome and sexy book

    25 StarsI’ve finished Primal Bonds obviously and all I’m left with is a vague ‘meh’ feeling It seems like I never fully engaged with the story I never really cared about the main characters the way I wanted to and I felt that everything was a bit too pat to really enjoyWe open the book right in the middle of the action I usually enjoy this but here I found it a little confusing We were introduced to the heroine Andrea like we were supposed to know her already so I spent a couple minutes skimming through the previous book Pride Mates trying to find mention of her I guess she’s completely new but with how long it had been since I read the first book I thought I had just forgotten about herI found it odd to be dropped into the middle of a mate claim I know the reasons that were given for it but I never understood the attraction between them It was just there and we were supposed to run with it The accelerated relationship was one of my problems in the last book but at least I felt the connection there Here they just seemed to spend a lot of time panting for each other with no real reason The distance I felt toward them made most of their relationship feel false They spent a lot of time having sex or thinking about having sex and it almost seemed like a substitute for developing an actual relationship I didn’t hate them but I found the side characters interestingSpeaking of side characters I’m glad we got details about Glory and Dylan I really liked them in the first book so it was nice to see development there I was very pleased with Glory for what she did but I felt it all worked out a bit too uickly in the end I hope that’s not the end of it and that we get to actually see them talk and work out some of their issues in the next bookI really liked that the author strayed outside of the shifters and introduced us to the Fae The world Collars and Shiftertown details were one of my favorite parts of the first book so it was nice to see it expanded here I thought it was interesting to get to see a shifter’s perspective out in the human world and wish we could have seen a bit of that There were some things that set Andrea apart because of her Fae heritage and I hope we get detail on that eventually I’m curious to hear why it’s different for her Yes that was vague on purpose The book was a uick read but I felt like a lot of issues were solved too easily I never really felt an air of seriousness or worry about the resolution of the problem with the humans and that was echoed in the easy going joking manner that everyone had I didn’t want conflict for conflict’s sake but it felt like issues were stopped short before they actually got meaty That goes for Andrea’s interactions with a certain mystery guest that kept cropping up as well It just all was a bit too easy for meFavorite uoteBikinis he said I knew itWe're strangely fond of each other's underwearI promise not to wear yours if you don't wear mineReview originally posted on Fiction Vixen

    The audio was fun I like the Irish lilt the narrator gave to the Morris’s Andrea and Shawn are a cute couple Nice how he gives her time Nice to learn about shifters with their power plays and structures My original rating stands though the narration is outstanding Rated 4 Stars

    Oh I would love to love this book since I enjoyed the first one in this series; but somehow the story just didn't deliver Maybe it wasn't the right moment for me to read it or maybe because I felt like I was missing the romancing that I ended up not caring for the two characters When the story started Sean already took a mate claim over Andrea A character that had not even appeared in the first book I felt like being shoved into a plot without a warning it was a huh how did that happened reaction from me It didsn't give me enough foundation to like the relationship even as it went along I felt disconnected with the story I also didn't really care about the action storylineTruth be told I skimmed almost half of the book then jumped to the last chapter to finish it I didn't feel sorry that I missed out probably the solution to Andrea's heritage or the humanshifters or coalition that seemed to attack other shifters Hopefully the third book is better But this one it's already forgotten shrugs

    I was lucky enough to win an advance reading copy of Primal Bonds from Jennifer Ashley's facebook pageOnce again Jennifer Ashley brings us to her Austin TX Shiftertown in Primal Bonds book 2 of her Shifters Unbound series Here we find the Feline Shifter Sean Morrissey Guardian of his clan and powerful member of his pride Sean's job as the Guardian could be a really lonely one When his neighbor's niece needed to relocate from her Shiftertown in Colorado seeking shelter he offers her his protection When Sean met her he found a little Lupine Snifter that could look him in the eye That was the last thing that he had expected And he had just mate claimed herHalf Fea and half wolf Shifter Andrea Gray had long become acuainted to looking after herself but she needed a new protector in order to escape an unwanted mate claim She thought that a Guardian would fit the bill nicely However she wasn't expecting the intense attraction that she felt for her rescuer when she first looked into his blue eyesAndrea struggles to keep her mating of convenience platonic Sean plans to turn his mate claim into the real thing Will her mixed blood and troubled past as well as her stubbornness keep him from truly claiming his mate?Jennifer Ashley truly outdoes herself in this novel She made me feel hate sadness and elation as I read her words As in the first book in the series discrimination and prejudice is clearly addressed and challenges the reader to look at a fictional situation and perhaps see the similarities in our own culture I for one appreciated the way that she addressed the volatile situations as or hero and heroine fought in all ways to be by each others sides The story easily sweeps us along on Sean and Andrea journey to their HEA And a HEA is what they get in this awesome and sexy book
