One night, Callum is driven into the woods by instinct – an instinct to protect. In the form of wolf, he meets a young human child who he is instantly drawn to in a fierce way he doesn’t quite understand.

Sonia Arlington has lived a lonely life. She has certain abilities that make her strange and she has a rare disease that, if untreated, could kill her. Her father makes her vow that she will never let others discover her abilities. This forces Sonia to stay distant, always guarding against exposure.

Intelligence leaks that Sonia is Callum’s human mate. He is now King of the Werewolves and has war on his hands. He’s forced to claim his mate and integrate Sonia into a world that is strange and frightening.

As Sonia attempts to adjust, Callum attempts to cope with the knowledge that his mate is mortal. He will have her beauty and gentleness only the length of a mortal life, making their union unbearably bitter, even as Sonia makes it unbelievably sweet.

If you know me, then you probably know I looove Kristen Ashley’s audiobooks. Amazing stories + amazing narrators = audiobook heaven for me, and KA’s audiobooks always deliver. With Everything I Am is the second book in her paranormal The Three series, and though it can be read as a standalone, I will warn you that if you experience one book in the series, you’ll probably want to experience the rest (that’s how KA gets you!). This one’s also narrated by Stella Bloom, who I love – I’ve listened to her narrations in the past and she’s absolutely fantastic at it. With Everything I Am is another audiobook win from KA – I loved reading it as a book and loved it even more as an audiobook. I highly recommend this one for PNR lovers!

Callum, King of the Werewolves, has been waiting decades to claim his human mate. But when rebel werewolves find out about Sonya and try to attack her, the time for Callum to reveal himself to her comes sooner rather than later. After he saves her life, he whisks her off to his isolated cabin to prepare her to enter his world… except that the very human Sonya still has no idea werewolves exist, and he has to convince her to be the queen of them.

Neither Sonya nor Callum get off to a good start with one another – in fact, neither of them wanted to even have a relationship in the first place. But as they get to know one another, a slow, genuine romance starts to form, and it’s seriously the sweetest! Sonya is one of my favorite of KA’s heroines. Despite how alpha, domineering, and pushy Callum is, she doesn’t roll over and let him do whatever he wants. I admired how tough she was, after all the heartache she’s been through, like losing her parents at a young age, dealing with a painful disease, and leading a lonely life. She’s sweet to the core, willing to lend a hand to anyone who needs one, and thankfully Callum sees that.

Stella Bloom was perfect as Sonya – I love her voice so much! And her Scottish/British mixed accent for Callum and the rest of the werewolves was spot-on. I loved all the slight inflections her voice took for every character – it made this listen all the more enjoyable. If you’ve read and enjoyed With Everything I Am, you definitely need to experience it again as an audiobook. And if you haven’t yet, what are you waiting for!? It’s a classic KA romance, only with a paranormal twist. You’ll be in for a wild ride with an alpha-male, an adorable heroine, badass yet surprisingly sweet werewolves, and an epic love story.
