I've been wanting to try Carrie Ann Ryan for some time now and Tattered Loyalties has been sitting in my Audible Library for months collecting virtual..Show More » dust. Finally forced myself to listen before Audible's Great Listen Guarantee expired, and WOW, I didn't realize what I've been missing out on! It was awesome, listened almost non-stop, and it's safe to say I won't be returning this one! Very impressed the writing, plot,characters, action, and romance. Looking forward to continuing this shifter series as well as trying other stories by Ryan.
A slightly slow start quickly builds into spellbinding shifter story about an unlikely mating between a dominate alpha and his submissive mate. Gideon, the alpha of the Talon pack, has been hoping for a mate. When he finally finds her, he doesn't think it will work because Brie's a submissive wolf, and he's concerned the pack will not respect or accept her, so he doesn't acknowledge her as his mate. However, the elders think it's time for him to mate for the good of pack, and have chosen another mate for him. Not wanting to mate with anyone else, he reluctantly accepts and acknowledges Brie as his mate. Gideon quickly learns the value of having a submissive wolf as a mate, and how she helps him keep his emotions in check. Brie's aware it will be a challenge being the alpha's mate and is prepared to stand up for herself and prove her worth to the pack, but Gideon is way to protective of her and tries to keep her sheltered. He completely underestimated his mate, and soon learned she was much stronger than what he gave her credit for. Their dominate/submissive qualities actually complimented each other perfectly.
Gregory Salinas did an a fantastic job narrating this story.
Well worth the time, and credit but I'm whispersync junkie! Shifter stories are some my of my favorite PNR and Tattered Loyalties reminded me of a lot of Suzanna Wright's Phoenix Pack. It may not have been as intense, dark or steamy, but it still a worthy listen and well worth the time. If you like Suzanna Wright's Phoenix Pack, then you will definitely want to consider adding this series to your library.
Carrie Ann Ryan does it again between her epic, outstanding, awesome, amaxing writing and Gregory Salinas voice I'm in audio book heaven. If you love..Show More » to listen to books that are not only different but will pull you into an awesome storyline then an alpha's choice is the audio for you. Loved loved loved it
