Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey

I listened to the unabridged audio version of Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey and narrated by Kevin T. Collins and Natasha Soudek. Winter's Guardian is the first novel in a series and is a paranormal romance that deals with supernatural beings like vampires, werewolves, and angels. Winter's Guardian is also the last novel I read during the month of October.

Listening time for Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey is 5 hours, 56 minutes.

I didn't care much for the narrators for Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey. I felt like Natasha Soudek narrated too slowly and Kevin T. Collins narrated too swiftly. Also, there were times while listening to this novel being narrated that it was difficult to figure out which characters were speaking because of the narration, which made for a confusing read at times.

I like paranormal romance novels generally, but I didn't enjoy how juvenile/immature the storyline and/or characters seemed to be at times. Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey seemed more geared to young adults or for those in college than older adults.

Also the ending for Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey, was so so... And because Winter's Guardian is the first novel in a series, the ending purposely hooks you into wanting to read the next novel in the series... This isn't necessarily a bad thing if you want to read the next novel in the series. But quite frankly, I am not interested in reading the rest of this series after reading Winter's Guardian.

The following is a plot summary for Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey from Audible:
When Winter started university with her best friend, Alex, she didn't expect to find herself in the middle of a supernatural war. Who knew saving a stray wolf could earn you the alliance of the pack?
To make things more complicated, the broody and very attractive Jaxson is tasked with keeping her safe from the growing vampire threat in town. It's a shame he can't stand her and enjoys irritating the hell out of her.
When she finds out her new boyfriend has his own secrets, can she trust anyone anymore?
What happens when you get yourself stuck in the middle of a war?
This is a reverse harem book series. Seventeen+ listeners only.
I am giving Winter's Guardian by G. Bailey a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Well, I sure do like the dress on the cover. Since I don't read that much in this genre I would have no idea how to judge if I would like the books before reading them. Glad I have you to help me! Who is your favorite paranormal romance author?

    1. At this point in time, I do not have a favorite paranormal romance author. I find this genre really hit or miss for me. If I've enjoyed a paranormal romance novel by an author, I haven't always chosen to read more books by that author.
