For 14 years, alpha wolf Jason has watched his partially marked mate Cadence live her life without him. Circumstances force his hand and he must find a way to get her to uncover her buried memories of their past before someone else steps up to take her from him.
For as long as she can remember, hybrid wolf Cadence has loved Jason with every fiber of her being, but he's consistently shoved her away until the love that's there is bound tightly in anger and shame. No one can take his place in her heart, but that doesn't mean that there aren't wolves willing to try.
Will Cadence be able to get through Jason's icy demeanor to the heart of the boy she's always loved? Can Jason undo the past so they will have a future together? This book contains red-hot werewolf loving, plenty of neck biting, and misuse of a kitchen counter. The Wolf's Mate is a book for mature audiences only and contains sexually explicit content.

After the main characters actually got together there were a few too many sex scenes for my taste. Although the descriptions of the scenes were refreshingly direct, they became a little too close together for me to enjoy the progress of the story.
Anything by Molly Harper or Nora Roberts.
The narrator did a wonderful job, I liked everything about her performance.
Kinda sorta. It was definetly amusing, but the ending dragged a lot.
"Fuck-me boots" and living in a trailer should not be a womans highest aspirations.
"First of a great series"
I really enjoyed both the Audible version and the Kindle version.
I liked the way the author worked through the tension between Jason and Cadence.
The scene where the Alpha decree was broken
"Good but an eye roller!"
Good book, great story...kept my interest the entire time...but I felt like the story could have been summed up after Jason and Cadence finally came together... but there was like 8 more chapters after that...Whew!
Cadence was a great non-shifting alpha wolf...but Man! She was totally clueless about everything around her... It got old, pretty quick...so I started to ignore her antics... and Jason...geez! If you already claimed you mate...but she don't remember...how bout you just make her! Soo... IDK...did I actually like this or not... I did...but these characters where full of.... eye rolling qualities!
Narration was good...
I would wait for a sale for this... not even a credit b/c you will be rolling your eyes more than a few times...
I received this as a prize and I had read this in ebook form prior to winning this audio version.
this series is very enjoyable and the audio version is as well. it had a good pace and the narrator carried it well. these types of books are kinda funny to listen to. I feel like a teenager snickering during the "adult" parts. the storyline is pretty interesting and easy to follow. it definitely pulls the reader in and you become invested in all the characters involved. you become part of them and want to find out all about them.
"Good start to the series :)"
This was a good story. Jason and Cadence were engaging characters and their story did keep me interested in finding out what happened next.
Cadence is a wolf hybrid, something that's never happened before. Her mother was a shifter but her father was human. Her mother died during childbirth and something about that infused Cadence with shifter-like powers even though she was never able to change. Cadence's father wasn't too happy about her wolf side and made Cadence miserable growing up.
Jason is the Alpha of his pack and owner of the local garage. Jason and Cadence were neighbors growing up and very good friends. Jason knew early that Cadence was his mate and only wanted to be with her. When Jason knew his first shift was coming and he'd have to separate himself from her until he can control his wolf, Jason decided to mark Cadence. Unfortunately in the middle of things, Jason's father sees it and stops Jason from explaining what it meant, instead using his Alpha power to make her think she got the hurts from falling in to a rose bush. Since Cadence was so young (only 10 yrs old), his "suggestion" made her forget the truth.
Because of Jason's dad's interference, Cadence never found out what really happened. He forbid anyone from talking to Cadence about it which basically screwed Jason over because until Cadence remembers that he marked her and realizes she's mated they can't become full mates. He hasn't been able to move forward with trying to jog her memory because after he pushed her away (rather harshly) when they were kids, Cadence was hurt and felt abandoned and thinking Jason disliked her. After that she took her anger and aggression out on Jason whenever they were near each other. Cadence went away to college and when it was finally time for her to come back home, Jason knows it's time to get her to remember and then win her. He has to do it quickly too because their town has 2 packs. The Alpha of the other pack, Jake, promised to hold his people off Cadence for a month to give Jason a fair shot but after that she's fair game. Unfortunately, Jake isn't a very good Alpha because his son, Chris (who is supposed to be the next Alpha after Jake) decides to make a play for Cadence and makes it practically impossible for Jason to get a chance with Cadence. Jake pretty much seems to look the other way because it's his son that's ignoring his orders so Jason is kind of screwed since he can't just kill Chris (no matter how much he wants to).
Chris basically poaches Jason's territory by taking every single moment he can of Cadence's time and getting the females of his pack to be nice and friendly to her to try to draw her to their pack and away from Jason. Chris starts being pretty underhanded in his attempts to keep Jason and Cadence apart. When Jason manages to get Cadence to take a job at the garage managing the office, Christ tries to hire her away saying she's too good for that place. The whole thing with Chris was kind of messed up, especially since Cadence knows that she could never be with Chris because she loved Jason. If that's the case, why the heck did she keep going out with the slime bucket and letting his kiss her goodnight!?!?! Jason is forced to see them dating and doesn't take things well. On top of this, everyone looks to Cadence to fix this all and make the right choice but because of the "Alpha's edict" making sure no one let on to her what was going on, she didn't even know what she should be doing to make things right. To be honest I thought they really kind of jerked her around in that way, both her and Jason. Chris ends up proving just what a slime he is and things get tough but everyone comes through alright. Jason and Cadence get together but they have to spend some time working through their lingering relationship difficulties but before too long Jason and Cadence are starting their HEA.
This was an enjoyable story. I liked Cadence and Jason overall but I had my frustrations with them both at times. The story was good but there were a few points I didn't consider believable or realistic given the circumstances which is why it didn't get 4 stars. I'll probably read the next book in the series sometime in the future. :D
On the narration: Overall, the narrator was good but I would have liked the narration better if it didn't see hurried sometimes. It wasn't constant but at times the narration seemed a little too fast.
"Love this book...."
This is my first audiobook & I love it...
Jason is sooo awesome. I love his alpha nature & the way he takes care of his mate.
I love RE Butler & her books. I own all 3 paperback & all of the other books on my Nook. I also now have this new audio book & can't wait for more.... hugs sisterfriend.... jmb
"Read its awesomeness!"
This book is amazing, sweet and funny. I have read this book more than 5 times since I got it. I love it and am never tired of it.
I love how Cadence can stand up for herself instead of depending on others. That Jason has almost lost Cadence and has to try to win Cadence.
I liked other Jason and Cadence
I was excited in the end that Jason and Cadence are together at the end.
"i am so happy this was in audio"
I love R E Butlers books and when i happened to see this one here I had to get it.
Jason and Cadence had a rough start , particially claimed at a young age it was ordered not to say anything so when she came home from school she did not understand what was going on, she has loved Jason all her life and now he was showing interest . Chris wants her to and it has become an obsession and Cades gets hurt, Jason finally gets to claim his mate and then she is taken again, Jason will not let anything take his mate again .
i hope the rest of this series will be done in audio!!!
"The most amazing story."
The story is such an amazing story. The story line completely amazes me. I loved the story line and depth and amazing amount of feeling Ms Butler put into the story line.
I loved the whole story line. The whole story amazed me and sucked me in.
She had a lot of depth to her tone even if she made it rough in her attempt of voices.
When Jason found out that Cadence
"Love this story"
I truly enjoy R.E. Butler 's books, I have almost all of her stories on my Kindle! So when I saw this on Audible I didn't even have to think about it, pressed the purchase button right away.
I'm hoping the rest of this series will be available soon.
The only draw back for me was the narrator choice, I feel her voice makes Cadence sound like a teenager. Took a few chapters for me not to analyze it.
"Jason and cadence"
Please listen to the book was so good at the end of the book left you ready for the next one to read so get more out there thank you
