The Alpha's Mate: The Wolvers, Volume 1 | [Jacqueline Rhoades]

The Alpha's Mate: The Wolvers, Volume 1

Welcome to Rabbit Creek.... City girl Elizabeth Reynolds hopes to find peace and contentment in the small Appalachian town of Rabbit Creek. Okay, so the bucolic cottage she's rented turns out to be a dilapidated cabin without phone service, but the people she meets are wonderful. Friendly and down to earth, they welcome her with open arms. It's just like moving to Mayberry...if Andy and Aunt Bea were wolves. Only an outsider would call them werewolves.

Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Rabbit Creek.... City girl Elizabeth Reynolds hopes to find peace and contentment in the small Appalachian town of Rabbit Creek. Okay, so the bucolic cottage she's rented turns out to be a dilapidated cabin without phone service, but the people she meets are wonderful. Friendly and down to Earth, they welcome her with open arms. It's just like moving to Mayberry...if Andy and Aunt Bea were wolves. Only an outsider would call them werewolves. They're wolvers, a community of man/beasts that have lived in these hills since their ancestors emigrated from Scotland three hundred years ago. And that gorgeous Chief of Police, Marshall Goodman, the guy she met while covered in mud and wearing granny underpants? The one who sends her heart spinning? He's their Alpha and his pack is under attack from outside forces. Elizabeth, being a sane and reasonable woman, wants no part of any of this, but if she refuses to risk her life and her heart, the people she's grown to care about will lose everything and she'll lose the one man she was born to love.

    "The Wolvers is a Shifter story Not to miss"
    What made the experience of listening to The Alpha's Mate the most enjoyable?

    When I read the summary I thought was, oh yeah just another wham bam shifter story, girl meets shifter falls madly in love jumps between the sheets kind a story.I was pleasantly surprised that it actually had a good plot and a real story to this one.BEST OF ALL a stronger lead female who wasn't just goanna run and cry for big bad shifter to save her but was happy to pick up a gun and stand her ground. Proving to everyone around her in the small town of rabbit Creak why she was perfect to be the Alphas mate.A great story, good plot, great description of the sort of scenery characters are set in, strong female lead and a good narrator.I recommend THE ALPHAS MATE to those looking for more than just sex, sex, sex in a shifter story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alpha's Mate?

    One of the moments I liked the most was when reveals to Henry that he doesn't need to worry that she knows everything that is going on between him and Marshall Goodman and that there is nothing to be ashamed of about being Gay. The shock that follows was absolute hilarious when Henry informs her that if would be fine if they were gay but they aren't, next he questions her on how many people she told about him and Marshal Goodman.Its so funny I could not stop laughing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think that would have to be one of most favourite scenes in the book,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want to listen to all in one sitting in fact I had to listen to it two more times I loved it that much.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a real good shifter story with plot, character , drama and comedy with that bit of passion happening then this is a must for you.

    "NARRATION? YES. IT MATTERS!!"

    I love Jacqueline Rhoades. She's an outstanding author who gives such wonderfully full story lines. I would recommend any book she writes. I will NOT give Leah Frederick (Narrator) another listen!! Because narration in an audiobook is EVERYTHING!!
    Her voice is high pitched and it just hurt me to listen. I tried. Honest.
    So, listen to the full sample listen before deciding to buy or not.

    "Entertaining story. Bad narrator."
    What didn’t you like about Leah Frederick’s performance?

    She read every single line like it was a one-liner joke. It was unbearably annoying. I will follow this series, but in book form.

    "Wonderful book"

    This was an awesome book.I enjoyed this book immensely! I got this book on auto. if you're looking for a well written book that grabs your attention and sucks you in . Combining humor, adventure and romance. Elizabeth (Lizzie) is a middle class librarian on a career break and the story starts with her suffering a disaster that most women are secretly afraid of. She is rescued by a stranger who turns out to be the local Chief of Police - Marshall, who is tall dark and handsome but supposedly unavailable.
    Lizzie rents a cabin in the woods where she plans to write a book. She quickly becomes ensconced in local life and settles in quickly when she discovers a secret that turns her world upside down. this is the beginning of wonderful series, I can't wait to read or listen to the next one.

    ":("

    The story was pretty lame in itself, but add that AWFUL, squeaky and somewhat lisping voice and turns out it took me nearly a month to complete the audiobook. Good thing I'm an optimist and will give the series another try...

    "Reader can't say wolf"

    frustrating - eternally frustrating. listening to a story where "the woof had sharp teeth" all. the.way.thru. Story is excellent. humor, anguish, affection, and fear were all portrayed well by the author.

    "narrator did a pretty good job of ruining this."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    recommend the book? Yes
    recommend the audio book? No
    the story is good, the narrator is not.


    How could the performance have been better?

    different narrator. very annoying high pitched voice, didn't stick to the accents the characters were meant to have. . .


    Any additional comments?

    i bought the audio book to this story after starting the Ebook but not having the time to carry on, so i know it's the narrator that has ruined this story.her voice is far too distracting, and just when i think i can get use to it, she does something else to put me off.please, if you are able, try the Ebook instead of the Audio for this story.

    "Light hearted Wolf book"
    Would you listen to The Alpha's Mate again? Why?

    Yes I will and I will check out the other books in this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alpha's Mate?

    There were a few - I don't think I can isolate one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, spread over a single day.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy the light hearted approach - no stress and even the aggression is not horrific. A good read if you want a calm enjoyable time.

    Story
    "A little bit rubbish"

    Not sure is it was entirely the writing that was crap or the narrators style or a combination but this book was just hard work to get through.
    I prefer books with narrators that are really good voice actors and convey the emotions and nuances of the story and I found that lacking.
    In regards to the actual story it reminded me of molly harpers books only not really funny and a little bit awkward. Elizabeth didn't inspire me to feel anything for her neither did Marshall. The sex scenes were naff and I don't mind these being full of juicy details or skimmed over as long as they are well written.
    Aside from that there where a few bits I did genuinely enjoy and I would have enjoyed it more had I read the book as the narrator really doesn't have the kind of style I enjoy. Might try book 2 on my kindle one day...maybe
