About this audiobook

When a wolf shifter was in a pack, they were ranked according to gender and power. Luckily for Tatum Roloff, she didn't have a pack. Or was it?

Tragedy befell her family, leaving her in charge. Being a unique female shifter with both submissive and dominant characteristics, Tatum stepped above the image of a male-led society. She learned to take charge and survive, placing her happiness on hold to be of service to her family.

When the time came to hunt for a pack, a plan formed to find a true mate.

The Green Lagoon Pack accepted her, but she found herself in conflict with the beta brothers. Cade hated her, and Luke maybe loved her.

Will Tatum be able to focus on her pack and find love, or will she let the shifters who hate her new female ranking destroy her chances of both love and service for her pack?

    Review for Times of Change


    OK WOW Troy Duran – That man could read me my old organic chemistry textbook and I’d be turned on. And I had to take that class three times to pass because I kept falling asleep. If Troy taught it, I wouldn’t have missed a SECOND! (oooo tell me more about isotopes).

    I was riveted to his voice and how he brought the male POV to life. He’s the perfect narrator for this Shifter romance. When he played Eli (a younger male) I wasn’t in the hot zone, but when he went to the males that were in the romantic scenes – WOWZERS! His voice really moderates from low and sexy, to well… sexy but narrating, if that makes sense. So, when it wasn’t a scene where he needed to pour on the heat, like with Eli who’s an 11th grader, I still thrilled at his wonderful voice, but it wasn’t sexual, if that makes sense.

    Honestly – Troy Duran… I need you to narrate my life.

    Heather, the female narrator, also does a good job. She does accents in the story which I found impressive.

    Overall this audiobook was well made and well put together.

    Review of the Book Itself:

    4.5 STARS! This book is an immersive start into a series revolving around a central heroine Tatum Roloff. The series mostly features Tatum and her story arc, but it also jumps into different point of views as it follows her brothers, and the other shifters and characters she meets, in her journey to find a pack, and to find herself.

    The story starts with a bit of a prologue feel as Tatum relates what has happened to throw her, a shifter, into living most of her adult life in the human world. In this world, Shifters live only with Shifters in packs, usually in pretty remote locations. This Shifter hierarchy is also male dominated, which as a reader, was a little tough to take, in particular at the beginning of the book as you see Tatum as a bit of a blank canvas that has only self-sacrificed for the males in her life. It’s a bit frustrating that she hasn’t done much for herself (her brothers have hobbies and pursuits like karate and college, she does not). She won’t listen to her much wiser younger brother Eli (who I loved and can’t wait to see more of in continuing books) when he tells her she isn’t doing enough for herself. So, for me, it was a little tough to connect with Tatum at the beginning of the book.

    However, this book is called TIMES OF CHANGE for a reason, so you know things are coming in this series, and it will be exciting to see Tatum realize her potential and that the way things are now, does not mean that this is the way it should be. Hints of it occur in this book and you KNOW more is coming.

    The story really zipping at about the 25% mark when they start searching for a pack to join. Tatum likes living in the human world, but none of them have ever fit in and she realizes they need a pack. So, a pack they find. A lot of interesting and fun characters join up with Tatum and her family (brothers Eli and James, and Great Grandfather) and the twists and turns start from there, with conflict building at every step.

    You may be surprised with each chapter turn to see who gets a POV. Once I let go of the "traditional idea of a romance novel" and realized this was a totally different experience, I found this really cool. As the pack builds, you get to see how things are going from different people’s perspectives, you get to see other relationships that form. And some of the POV's that are given... may they be hints that this person may be featured with their own romance in a future book?

    If you are a fated mate trope fan, enjoy Shifters, and enjoy immersive large expanse stories, you will really enjoy this book. It isn’t a traditional romance because in addition to the central female main character romance you are going to get multiple romances, multiple POV’s and lots of different interconnecting characters in a fleshed-out Shifter Pack world. It’s fresh and interesting!

    OMG, I love this book so much!!!!
    I'm a big fan of the stories with wolves, let’s add that in this book we have a female protagonist with such a strong personality, smart, bad ass, with alpha vibes. I though THIS IS THE BOOK I NEED RIGHT NOW!

    So, I started reading it and couldn't leave it until I finished it. It’s a fast read. B.L Dawn was able to create a world in which I am completely drawn in.

    The world building its fantastic, love all the pack dynamic, the family dynamic, all the supporting characters make a solid impact in the story, I feel such a strong connection with them, some of they are lonely, in need of love, looking for their mate.

    Let’s talk about our female protagonist, Tatum I love her so much! She’s so freaking fierce! I want her to be my friend. She’s my total female character package. In a place where men are normally the ones in control, she was able to stand out and show that no one will stop her.

    The chemistry between some couples is AMAZING!!! I love that!!! Yes, we have love stories here! With a perfect amount of spice! Trust me they were SO well-done.

    It was a wonderful start for the series, I wanted to know more about this story, I hope to read the sequel soon !!!!

    Highly recommend this book!!

    It was a book that keeps listeners wondering what was going to happen next. It kept you in suspense in parts. I could not stop listening this audio book. This is a truly wonderfully woven tale. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to future books by B. L. Dawn. I am not sure if B. L. Dawn have written any book prior to this one, I am not sure if this is her first book or not, but I will say that she has impressed me with her writing. If this is her first book then kudos to her for writing such an awesome book, and if this is not her first work then I would definitely like to see her previous works as well. This audio book was like a cool breeze after listening to several audiobooks that claim to be paranormal romance books but are something else entirely.
