Summary

One woman on the run. Four dangerously sexy bodyguards. And a war brewing that will change the shifter world forever...

I'm living on borrowed time, fighting for survival against a deadly new virus that has no cure and a cult doing its best to brainwash me. But when a mysterious note shows up on my windowsill one night, its chilling message - Run, Wren - launches me out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Within hours, everything I thought I knew about my life, my family, and my origins is obliterated, and I'm racking up enemies at an alarming rate. Between the cult I've just escaped, a violent shifter faction out for my blood, and an ancient evil who eats "chosen ones" like me for breakfast, my last hope is to join forces with four dangerous-looking men who claim they were sent to guard my life.

Luke, a werewolf with a rap sheet. Creedence, a lynx shifter who never met a mark he couldn't con. Kite, a bear kin with a mean right hook and heart of gold. And Dust, my childhood best friend and dude voted least likely to be a secret shape-shifting griffin.

But are these men really what they seem? Or are my alpha guardians hiding a secret agenda of their own? I'm not sure, but one thing is for certain - choosing the right allies will mean the difference between life and death. For me, and everyone I love.

Unleashed is book one in the Dark Moon Shifter's series. It is a true reverse harem featuring one woman and her four mates.

Wren❤️

This story is about Wren, who doesn’t exactly know who she really is. Her misguided parents have kept huge secrets from her and she’s always been too sick to plan for any kind of future. She’s whisked away from her life and everything is suddenly turned upside down. Bits of the story were slow but overall nice quick listen. I liked Wren. She’s caring, strong and very forgiving. Steamy moments. Reverse Harem. Good narration. Recommend.

Love it

The story line is different from any other supernatural book I’ve read. There are a few parts in the book that are slow, but by the end I was hooked. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Stick it out!

This one starts off a bit slow, but it is truly worth it in the end. Power through! Can't wait for the second book. Stellar performance by Tyler and Ellie!

PNR with an orignal story line, worth a try

An unexpected and tricky gem of a story. While not blown away, there is just something about this book that has me intrigued. The relationships were fun and I liked the mix of personalities and romance tropes with each of the guys. I felt the writing was okay but didn’t quite meet its full potential, making it hard to emotionally connect with the characters and leaving the balance and flow of the story intermittently choppy. The story itself was original (shifters, science experiments, and a splash of mythology, heck yeah!) and peaked my curiosity enough that I had to finish and know what happened. I wasn’t sure I would continue the series when I finished, but it has somehow wiggled its way into my brain and won’t leave. I love when a story sticks with you and will be giving the next book a try soon. I enjoyed the female narrator but just wasn’t feeling the male voice. Both narrators gave each character a distinct voice but the male’s performance was a little too much for me.

Review: Dark Moon Shifters 1: Unleashed

Unleashed: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy Romance by Bella Jacobs is the first book in her Dark moon Shifters series. Told in multiple POV's mostly from Wren's POV, this was my first foray into a reverse-harem story. Equally cautious about the Urban Fantasy aspect as I am a bit of a fantasy genre snob I was beyond wowed by the world-building and introduction to the characters and the rules of this world. The story was fluid, the information parsed out as and when needed without taking away from the ACTUAL storyline. Wren's thought process and feelings always seemed genuine and validated based on the seriousness of the situation she finds herself in and the attention of not one but four men destined to be her mates who will make her the strongest she can be to defeat the big bad was handled so well. Their emotions and views on the dynamics of their own relationship with wren as well as with each other - floored. Super hot when it was called for but also what a great story! I devoured this book and immediately went on and devoured books 2 & 3, Untamed: A Shifter Urban Fantasy & Unbroken: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy Romance. Loved it! Enjoy!

Color me intrigued!!

This is an amazing start for the series! It was a little slow paced in the beginning, but as the plot started to thicken and characters were being introduced, I was not able to stop after that! I can’t wait to keep on listening to the rest of the series!

Unleashed is a perfect time for this book!

I truly enjoyed this book. The FMC has been lied to her entire life. She gets kidnapped by the good guys to start learning what she really is. The character development is great. I am going to be on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book to come out!

It's ok

i really wanted to love this book the story has such great potential. Sadly I was bored for basically the entire second part of the book. I may still get the next one and give it a chance but probably only if I have a bunch of down time with nothing better to listen to.
