This was a different twist on humans turning into wolves. It was interesting storyline. The ending was a little abrupt, but enjoyed it! Is there a sequel?
The new series is a great way to get to know the Alpha Pack. Jax and Kira have set the stage both erotically and plot wise for some hot and steamy sex and paramilitary action. Look forward to the next one.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
Both versions are quite entertaining but I have a higher preference for audio than print...
The moment that Jax took off to save Kira with the nagging feeling that his life was about to change forever but unsure of how...I was hooked!
I would have to say the fight between Jax & Eric was a pretty good one!
I would say at some point Kira really irritated me....The fact that she denied her bond and almost cost Jax his life was definitely one that played on my emotions
Definitely a good start to this series and one that I would gladly say was worth my credit! ....although I got this listen for a better deal ($1.99) when I bought the print version through Amazon for about 5 bucks
I'm a listener-holic. I love to listen while making greeting cards, cooking, gardening, and while doing absolutely nothing else.
I was a bit skeptical of Ms Potter's voice at first. But I was soon very surprised with the depth of emotion I felt as she performed.
I did indeed want to listen all in one sitting.
This book has a great story line that makes me desperate to hear the next one in the series. The Alpha team plus additions have a most compelling story. It made me laugh, cry, and every other emotion there is in between.
It's an Audible Listen, and that makes the difference! One thing I have to say over and over again, The Narrator can make or break a book. This time she made the book.
The story line was great and the Narrator was great. You have to have both for it to work.
Kira's first change as a wolf.
Jaxon's personality after he decided Kira was his for real.
The only way to have a great Audible book is to have the Author and Narrator on the same page.Kristen Potter is a great Narrator. Just perfect for this series. I have heard her before and let me tell you she is one of your best. Thanks Audible for another great series.
I can't truthfully answer this because I have not read the print. However - I can say definitely that the narrator didn't serve this one well.
I loved the story line. Sure, it's very stereotypical - they are shifters, each has some kind of psy power... But the twist is that there seems to be a conspiracy somewhere (I won't give any spoilers) and there are consequences for actions taken - for using those powers. I think for a first book in a series, this is a very nice setup for the series - for many stories of the other team members and what they are fighting.
I did not like that there didn't seem to be much differentiation between the voices. All the men sounded about the same flatness, and the women sounded like softer man.
Best line: "I'll do a lot of things on command, but I don't roll over for anyone, sweetheart"
Mother of two grown children and five grandkids. I work in the Medical profession. I have been an avid reader since the age of twelve.
The narration was excellent. She made all the characters come alive and stand out on their own. The story line was great also. It left me wanting more when I finished this book. I had to start on book two as fast as I could. It answered a lot of questions but still left you asking and wanting more. I came to really love the characters as I listened to each new book.
How brave the men/turned shifters are as they fight against some unknown enemy that could ultimately destroy them all and all of mankind as we know it. The men of this alpha pack are like brothers in every since of the word.
My favorite scene is when Jax after trying to have sex with an old lover discovers he can't do it and he can't keep it up. After coming back to the compound trying to figure out what is happening to him Kira confronts him and sells the "other" woman on him.
When Jax was willing to die than force Kira to stay and be mated to him for life if she wanted to leave. He was fiscally ill to the point of possibly losing his life but he put her feelings and future first.
Yes, this fist book of the Alpha pack is full of hot romance and adventure. It sets you up for the next book...which by the way there are five in all so far..each one of the guys of the Alpha pack has his own sexy story to tell and how they meet their bond mates..great read.
