This book was interesting, but is wildly different from the fun, snark filled dialog readers expect from a Molly Harper book. If the name "Molly Harper" writing as ... is the lead text, it does open up certain expectations moving forward.
There are some interesting errors made with regard to Rom culture that make you go hmmmm. While this is not significant to the storyline, it is a little annoying because the cultural aspects were used in other places. I enjoyed the book but it was drastically different from what I enjoy most about Molly Harper's novels. It was at times slow and bogged down with the descriptive sex scenes, however, at other times, it glossed over aspects that might have been better served to be expanded. (i.e. just when did Alexei become so obsessed with Irina and why?) I understand many readers/listeners want those steamy scenes and that's okay too, but don't leave other bits out to make room for them. Alexei was so unlikable I felt frustrated that everyone seemed so quick to cover for him. More information about the family dynamic might have alleviated that irritation.
It is worth a listen, but I don't think I will be using future credits for this author duo.

Any additional comments?
Molly Harper's other works are humorous, interesting and fun. This was boring, plotless,stilted and the erotica was flavorless even before the umpteenth reprise.

I can see why Molly Harper wrote this book under a different name - it's not her usual style but it is still a good read/listen.
The whole story revolves around Russian criminal werewolves. The main character Galina Sudenko has lived an independent life for a decade but then returned home where the status of women is expected to be quiet, stay home and marry the person your father arranges. It is not what Galina Sudenko is prepared to accept.
The sex scenes are definitely graphic, once again not something you would expect from Molly Harper.
The book is however worth a listen.

the narrator is awful and the story is disappointing... couldn't finish it and gave up after an hour
