Audiobook Review: When He’s Sinful (The Olympus Pride, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When He’s Sinful by Suzanne Wright

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aspen Montgomery was nine years old when she befriended Camden Priest—a boy with dead eyes and dark urges. Since that day, they’d been inseparable. She hadn’t expected to later develop a major crush on him. Or expected that the crush would fail to pass. Or ever thought that she’d grow to wish that she could one day claim him as her mate. It’s never going to happen. She knows that. To him, she’s a friend, nothing more. So it’s time to make some changes to establish some better boundaries. Which would be a hell of a lot easier if he didn’t fight her on it.

There is only one person in the world who Camden Priest gives a damn about—Aspen. She’s his best friend, his anchor, his conscience, the very reason he’s sane. There’s only one secret he ever kept from her…he wants more than friendship. Knowing she doesn’t feel the same, he put a chokehold on his need for her. But when some asshole claims to be Aspen’s true mate and danger starts closing in on her, Camden’s control becomes precarious and platonic lines are crossed. He knows what he should do—leave it at a one-night stand to protect their friendship. He’s just not so sure he can.

The heroine: Aspen Montgomery – A bearcat shifter, at nine years old, she lived in a foster care group home. All the other kids told her not to talk to the weird kid with dead eyes, but she couldn’t help but make friends with him. She bonded with him over the fact that both of them had mothers that tried to kill them and she helped him to blink more and to act more like the other kids.

The Hero: Camden Priest – A tiger shifter. Camden was emotionless, he couldn’t feel things for anyone but his friend Aspen. His cat didn’t like anyone or anything except Aspen. He felt more for her than simple friendship, but didn’t think she felt the same. He was bisexual and had more boyfriends than girlfriends. He never gave Aspen any indication he was anything other than a friend.

The Story: Aspen and Camden both joined the Olympus pride together and now they lived in separate apartments though every place they had lived before, they were roommates. Aspen had wanted separate places because she was tired of her one-sided feelings for Camden and wanted some space. She didn’t want to get between him and his partners.

This book was steamy from the start. I love it when a tall sexy man is in total control and doesn’t feel things like other people but has so much feelings for that one special girl. I also loved how protective Camden was over Aspen and how he just wanted to be near her all the time. It was sweet and you could just feel how they were longing for each other from the start, though both of them thought the other wasn’t interested in that way. I usually am not to fond of the friends to lovers trope, but I really liked this one.

The book was told in dual points of view via solo narration and was narrated by Samantha Cook. She has a nice sonorous voice and does a good job doing different voices for the males and the females. I usually don’t like solo narration too much, especially if the narrator is a female, though this one didn’t bother me at all.
