Audiobook Review: A Nurse for the Wolfman (Chimera Secrets, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Nurse for the Wolfman by Eve Langlais

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A new series from Eve Langlais, Chimera Secrets.

What happens when a nurse falls for the wolfman?

The job offer is a dream come true. Three times her usual salary. Free meals and a suite. The only catch?

Margaret can’t tell anyone about it.

Hidden in the Rockies, the clinic is well protected and…odd. It doesn’t take her long to realize the doctors and scientists are up to no good. Especially once she meets Luke.

Her patient is an angry man who used to be a soldier. Now, he’s something else. A savage beast with gentle eyes that glow green when he’s agitated.

What has he become?

And will she be next? 

A Nurse for the Wolfman

Mad scientists and genetic experiments!

The heroine: Margaret – she was offered a position with Chimeram Clinics, six figures for six months work with an option to stay on. She just came out of a terrible relationship where her ex was cheating but accused her of the same and he wouldn’t leave her alone. So the job came at a time when she needed to get away. There were a lot of perks including a place to live, laundry service, and more. Even if all the non-disclosure agreements made her a bit apprehensive.

The Hero: Luke – He grew up in the foster system since his parents were drug addicts, he joined the army when he came of age. He was a good soldier who was injured in battle, but the doctors couldn’t repair his limp or his injured fingers. A year later, Luke was offered a one in a million chance to fix his injuries. He agreed and it was “the worst decision he ever made”.

The Story: Margaret meets Luke at the Chimeram clinic deep in the Rocky mountains. She figured the clinic was a government run top secret facility or rehab for the rich. She was surprised to find herself in a nightmare facility. Luke has been there for years, he has made numerous attempts to escape to no avail. He is mocked by the staff on a regular basis. He wanted to die.

I usually don’t even bother with audiobooks that don’t have both a male and a female narrator, but I got a good deal on this one and the rest in this series and it is narrated by Troy Duran who is one of my favorite male narrators. He has a very deep voice and speaks clearly and adapts his style to the genre of book he is reading, which I really like.

I like the fact that Margaret and Luke get to know each other as nurse and patient. He knows the situation he is in and the fact that he will never get free. Margaret has yet to figure out that she is working at a place that is doing illegal experiments on humans and keeping them hostage. Every time Luke mentions something about it, she thinks he is just sick and it is a part of his delusions. Even after they start sharing dreams together.

I have read this trope before (mad scientists doing genetic experiments and keeping people captive) but I liked this story. I like the fact that they are deep in the mountains and the romance is good, not insta-love. The two main characters get to know each other over time and Margaret falls for him before she finds out what he is.
