Editorial Reviews

"Mika is a human, in an alley, surrounded by four horny werewolves." So boldly begins the bizarre and erotically explicit tale Mate Set: Mating Heat, Book 1, narrated with game, breathless enthusiasm by G. C. VonCloudts.

In this alternate world, the horny werewolves are in charge, the horny humans are the outcasts, violence lurks everywhere, and seemingly every man, woman, and animal has nothing but sex on the brain. Perhaps fans of True Blood will appreciate this steamy and vaguely creepy story.

Publisher's Summary

It's werewolf mating season. All the males are in heat and the driving, sexual lust of their beasts is almost uncontrollable. Mika is human, in an alley, surrounded by four horny werewolves. She knows she's in deep shit. A tall, handsome werewolf rescues her then demands payment. Hot, sweaty, intimate payment.

Grady is a half breed whose human mother abandoned him to his werewolf father, so he knows human women just aren't safe to fall in love with. The wolf within him wants Mika as his mate, but Grady will not give in. Never. Ever. He's willing to fight his emotions and his beast, no matter how much sexy Mika tempts him.

But neither of them expected her Uncle Omar to assign Grady to protect her from other males - 24/7, in her home, sleeping just down the hall. Mika decides to make the best of her vacation and keep the hot wolf in her bed. Grady can't resist the scorching sex, but he is determined to resist the bond.

Hot Dang!

This was awesome after like the first 2 chapters... I was a bit confused then I realize by chapter 2 what was going on...and the story really takes off from there...

I loved the smexing... hotty hot!! Then Grady was an awesome confused alpha wolf... but Mika was awesome... I loved the way she taunted Grady...but I did want to slap her when she ran away from him... (but finding a naked werewolf chick in your newly mated shower will do that to a gyrl)!

Perfect Ending too... (wink) foreshadow to book 2... Can't wait to get to Anton's book!

Great job Dohner... please write more of the Harris Clan... I want a book from all 5 brothers...

Nice Credit, sale or buy... book is not that expensive...

Narration was awesome... VonCloudts is a great narrator... A new favorite...

So So Hot!

Wow this was super hot, I loved every minute of it. The book's summary wasn't intriguing enough for me to purchase it, but, I've enjoyed Dohner's other series so I figured I could risk it. I listened in one sitting--I was THAT hooked. If you want a story with a ton of depth, this isn't the one for you, but, if you're open to a bit of fantasy, seriously hot shifter sex, and definitely a lot of sarcasm, innuendo and humor, don't even read the rest of my review--'add to cart' immediately!

This is a EROTIC PARANORMAL ROMANCE ! 

First, I will admit there really wasn't a plot outside of the relationship between the hero & heroine. The story was focused on them, and them alone. Mika’s upbringing into a world of werewolf shifters and humans hasn’t exactly made her qualified to stay out of trouble. Although human herself, Mika’s uncle is a werewolf shifter and has taught her the ways of his pack… well almost all of them. Uncle Omar knowingly withheld vital information regarding mating season, thinking that this will keep Mika ‘innocent’ from the highly sexual natures of werewolf shifters. Her yearly vacation to visit with Uncle Omar couldn’t have come at a worse time. Now with Grady, his upbringing wasn’t exactly conventional either. His mother is a human who abandoned him to his father when she found out he could shift. Dealing with his abandonment issues has never been a problem since he’s in denial. Dealing with Mika when he’s assigned protection duties by her uncle, could prove to be disastrous. The two main characters are both very passionate and stubborn which leads to a physically explosive relationship from their first meeting. The emotional frustration kicks in when the characters start actually feeling something for one another but for Grady abandonment issues by a human woman is the drawback. Recommended for those seeking a highly passionate, highly sexual story that will pull you in all directions. Note to listener: if you’re looking for a new creative way to enjoy chocolate syrup, there’s a fantastic ‘recipe’ in this book.

Potential but not sure at this point

I had high hopes for this book but I think it fell a little flat for me. I am not exactly sure why but there was something missing. There was chemistry between Mika and Grady but I feel like their characters were not developed enough. I agree with some other reviews that Grady was not Alpha enough for me. Mika had potential to be a sarcastic, bitchy character but again it was not consistent enough. I enjoy female leads that are sarcastic so I was hoping it was going to be a strong theme throughout the book. I have to say that GC VonCloudts did a great job at trying to liven up the narration. I have no complaints on that part. I even feel the sex scenes were just mahhh. They were not terrible but not really great. I would hope that the next book picks up and the story lines and gets better. I can definitely think of better books if you like paranormal. Jeaniene Frost has a great series. I am not going to say I won't listen to more as I always like to give authors a chance but I and not positive at this point.

Great narrating

This is my first time listening to this author, I find her writing close to the edge, but I like that. Mika was a little annoying at times but the story was good enough to over look her. A lot of new audio books are being narrated by very young voices, not so with this one. J.C. VonCloudts performance is excellent and I would look for more of her work.

Turned on Lusty Werewolf - Oh YES PLEASE !!

Any additional comments?

Now I Love the Human Unknown and especially Werewolf's... Grady's sexual lust of his beast so Hot Hot Hot.... This book fulfilled all my Werewolf needs in every way.

Mika is on an evening trip to find some chocolate - problem is she doesn't realize it's mating season in the land of sifters where she is spending a couple of weeks visiting family. Poor girl finds herself confronted, beaten and almost raped by 4 very nasty males wanting to have their way with her. Grady hears her screams and takes on the 4 males in defense of her. With a bit of assistance to Grady from Mika, she manages to escape - she thinks. As she is making her way home, Grady finds her and calls in the debt owed him. Little does Grady know Mika's uncle is one of his pack leaders and Grady will need to protect her until the mating heat is over. Unfortunately, Grady also suffers the mating heat... and so the Sex Filled fun begins!

THE PLOT WAS HOT HOT HOT

Adopted Mira (the human heroine) get's caught in the middle of the Were mating season while visiting her Werewolf Uncle who appoints a bodyguard to watch over her until the 2 week 'frenzy' is over.

In prowls handsome Grady, a half breed Werewolf, who has trust issues with humans as he was abandoned by his human Mother so is seeking a Pureblood female to bond with. Trouble starts when he is forced to 'mark' Mira against his will and that's when the passion and non-stop sex really heats up. The problem is Mira's falling hard for him but Grady's human side is fighting a bond but his Wolf side is howling yes yes yes so sex is fine but he's in denial about his true feelings for Mira.

Mira came across as spoilt at times and did some dumb things and there wasn't really a plot other than mating mating and, yes you guessed it, more mating but despite this I really enjoyed all the emotional tension an turmoil as Grady finally had to decide what to do….. before time runs out.

Worth a credit? Well hello, hot hot hot Werewolf action, errr that would be a hell YEAH and I'm ready for Book 2..

Non stop fighting and bickering between them

This was not a book to be tossed aside some lightly....it must be thrown with great force. The entire book was like like a paid infomercial for couples therapy. The h whined the entire time about poor treatment and wanting to be loved. The H spent the entire book treating the h like crap while demanding to be serviced and the h falling in line and doing it! Then her meager attempt at passive aggressive rebellion by giving him the stereotypical cold shoulder has him offering up a weak half assed apology which she accepts only to have him go off on her, destroy her house like an out of control overgrown toddler because he becomes enraged by "accidentally" mating her mid sex. Then his family drags her back when she runs from him in fear, shaking a finger in her face, frowning at her and saying "bad girl! bad human!". At the end of all this the H comes to her and uses his damaged childhood as justification for his crappie behavior. I will never understand why men think this makes it ok to treat a woman like dirt in the present because some woman in their past treated THEM like dirt to begin with. Then comes the magic phrase from the H that makes everything he's done to her up to then go away, all the hurt, the insults, the cheating, the mental and emotional abuse, the lying and controlling manipulative behavior just vanish....he tells her he LOVES her. Naturally the h just forgives everything immediately to say "I love you too. " and they live happily ever after. UGH! Someone give me a time machine please so I can go back and stop myself from wasting my time and credit on this book. 🥵

Awful Save your money and yourself

Worst shifter book ever.

Shifters in heat dragging women off the streets and taking them against their will if need be making the entire town unsafe for women. Loving protective uncle tells his beloved niece Well sorry honey but you are going to have to live with a man you barley know ad his sex slave for weeks so he doesn't go crazy and we don't have to kill him. I know it doesn't seem fair but he has to have sex you until he doesn't feel compelled to anymore and well you wouldn't be in this mess if you had just stayed in the house..

One good lay and she's in love. He on the other hand is thoughtless demanding hurtful and borderline abusive. When she can't take anymore of his hurtful behavior the pack locks her up against her will forcing her to service his needs for weeks. He lies he hurts her all the time emotionally tries to force her to sleep with another shifter she's never even met and destroys her house. Sigh but she still loves him despite the hurt the virtual sex slavery and being kept against her will for weeks. She loves him so much all he has to do is say 'sorry baby i was jerk jerk because I didn't want to love you. I do love you though so forgive me and stay forever." Naturally she says yes because well he's hot afterall.

Amusing book!

This book was funny, it reminded me a bit of the Molly Harper Werewolf books.

Mica is a human female that visits her uncle two weeks out of the year, he is a werewolf. He's made sure since she was 5 that she understood what he was and how to handle werewolves. What he didn't explain to her was how maybe she shouldn't come to town during the summer because that is mating season and well...ALL the werewolves are horny. She learns this first hand though after being accosted by 4 werewolves while she was walking to the store. Thankfully a sane werewolf came and rescued her, but he did demand a bit of payment of the sexual variety.

Mica's uncle realizes she isn't safe, she needs a guard. He has several pack mates come to the house and hes going to choose one based on who looks at her in the least sexual way. Mica thinks this is a ridiculous concept but is fairly shocked when she sees her rescuer from the night before....she won't look at him, he won't look at her, and poof that is her uncles choice for her guardian.

Comedy ensues, one mistake after the next, it was great to listen to these characters interact. "No, I didn't want to go out but she told me I either had to take her out or strip. You told me you would take my balls if I touched her, so stripping was out."

Great stuff, good for credit or buy and the narrator was good too!
