Audiobook Review: Pride Mates (Shifters Unbound #1) by Jennifer Ashley

Pride Mates -  Jennifer Ashley

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at


Shifters have come out and they took steps to help the humans feel comfortable around them. They wear collars to keep them aggression in check. They also live on something similar to reservations. They can’t have some of the basic luxuries that humans can have.


Kim is a human lawyer who drew the short straw to represent a shifter who is on trial for murder, which should be able to happen with his collar. The suspense is a little predictable, but there are some twists that I did suspect. The romance was wonderful and full of passion. There is a bit of the instant connection between the two. I’m excited to see where this series goes.



I liked the narration. Pride Mates is the only book that Traci Odom narrates for this series. There is a change in audio publisher, so there was also a change in narrator. I thought she did a great job with this book and would’ve been happy if she continued with the series. I haven’t listened to the second book yet, so I don’t know if the change is for good or bad yet.
