Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ashley, who writes urban fantasy as Allyson James, follows her 2010 paranormal romance, Pride Mates, with another sexually charged and imaginative tale. Humans force shape-shifters to live in shantytowns and wear fae-made magical collars that keep them from using their animal powers. Half-fae, half-lupine shifter Andrea Gray, fleeing a forced mate-claim in her hometown, heads to the Shiftertown in Austin, Tex., where she gets protection from a mate-claim in name only with feline shifter Sean Morrissey. In a twist on the pretend marriage trope, the contract gives decidedly nonsubmissive Andrea and alpha male Sean license to explore their burning passion in electrifying detail. Andrea's mysterious, surprising background and special abilities enhance the plot, as do the interesting supporting characters. Occasional clunky backstory dumps will help new readers grasp the many story line intricacies, and returning fans will love the quick pace and smart, skilled writing. (Mar.)

Sean Morrissey is a Guardian, chosen to wield a magical sword that will send the souls of dead Shifters into the afterlife. Though he is respected for what he does, his position has left him longing for a mate he can share his life with. When he hears that the half-Fae, half-Shifter Andrea Gray is being abused in her pack, Sean mate-claims Andrea without meeting her in order to bring her into his Shiftertown in Austin where she will be safe. While helping Andrea, Sean is given the chance to finally have a mate but what he didn't expect was to instantly fall head over heals for the sexy and mouthy Lupine.

True Andrea needs Sean and the rest of the Morrissey clan in order to escape her old pack and the abuse of a Shifter she will not mate but she is far from weak. She will not cower behind Sean when things become difficult and will let her opinions be known. I love when a heroine has a backbone and Andrea definitely does. Sean gets frustrated with Andrea when she refuses to hide and not go to work when humans start shooting bars and restaurants that Shifters are known to frequent. Everything in Sean calls for him to protect his Andrea, even though she hasn't officially accepted his mate-claim. What I liked about Sean was that he took care of Andrea but knew when it was a losing battle and did his best to just make sure she didn't get hurt. I love my alpha males but sometimes they cross over the line into being obnoxious but Sean knew when to be protective and when to give Andrea some space.

I liked Liam (hero in Pride Mates) but I loved Sean. Sean has Liam's devotion to his family and pack, strength and street smarts but there is a sweeter side to Sean that I could not get enough of. Unlike Liam, Sean didn't push the woman he wanted as his mate away.

Primal Bonds by Jennifer Ashley
Paranormal Romance -March 1st, 2011
5 stars

Primal Bonds is the second in Jennifer Ashley's shifter series but can be easily read by itself. It is a thrilling an emotionally satisfying romance. I liked it even better than the first book, Pride Mates.

In this story, the half Fae and half lupine shifter named Andrea Gray has found sanctuary in a new Shiftertown. She fled her old one because she was terrorized by a lupine who wanted to mate with her. But as a condition to being allowed to stay in this new Shiftertown, Andrea had to find someone who would volunteer to be her potential mate.

Sean Morrissey is the Shiftertown Guardian. A powerful protector who carries a magical Fae sword that allows shifters to be released to 'heaven' before they die. When he first saw the beautiful and vulnerable Andrea, he couldn't help volunteering himself as a potential mate and has vowed to wait until she is ready for him. But their relationship is complicated by prejudices against shifters. A rash of human shootings on various Shiftertowns causes severe injuries. When the police ignore the shifters' pleas for help, the Morrissey family becomes more determined to find out the cause and 'fix' it.

This is an exciting story that I read in one sitting! I loved the 2 main characters and the chemistry between them is super hot. Jennifer Ashley also has separate storylines including Sean's father which add a lot of depth to this book and made me feel like I really knew these characters. There are some really good surprises concerning Andrea and her Fae nature, which drives the story. It was also fascinating to learn about Sean's role as a Guardian and the Guardian history.

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 handy....just 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 life.

Andrea 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 protector.

"Andrea 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.
