Publisher's Summary

Zain was just a dog walker. It was an unconventional job for a werewolf, even a brand new one, but he liked dogs and they liked him. It only seemed to make sense... right up until the point a vampire called him in to take care of his human pup. When his life collided with Liam and Caleb's, none of them were prepared for the directions it could take.

Especially Zain.

But between the sexy pup and the vampire's creativity, the power struggles pitting dominance against submission - and acceptance - the two might be too intriguing to just walk away from.

Better than the first!

I liked this twisted, dark story. There's a vampire, who does not understand dogs, a werewolf who does and a human puppy, who is not a dog. Or at least he doesn't want to be. Or maybe he does.
Unique story and it gets better in this second book. The narrator is somehow better in Alpha than in Puppy and I liked the narration.

wag that tail for me...

Ok so first off, im glad this was not just smut over and over, it had a story line and some backstory. This is book two and I never read book one but you don't have to with how the story is told. Now the positives was the story was surprising and didnt follow a stereotype and even had proper terms being used. DOWNSIDE, the story seemed out of joint, like one part should have come before another, as if the chapters were mixed up. Still was good tho. Major downside that just annoyed and grated on my nerves, sorry JJ but that calm attempt at being sexy voicing zayn was not any of those, it was the same voice used for females in the story, it reminded me of that super buff female cop off a cartoon show stereotype, I would practice female voices more, the accent for liam was pretty good, and calebs voice was just the narrators normal voice it seems.Would I listen again? NO. I would just read it instead. Would I recommend this, YES, but only reading.


I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher

It was okay

2.5 stars. I was given the audio without expectation of a review.

The story was okay, although more editing is needed. I like how they became three, and how Zain smooths everything out between Caleb and Liam.

The audio. Well ... the narrator cannot and should not try to do accents. His voice for Liam made me think of Schwarzenegger in the early 80s films he's done, it was bad. He did well with other voices, but, as I never read this I don't know if the sentences are often that short or if it was just his delivery.

Overall, I'd suggest getting the book through KU.

love the direction this series in going in

hawt...hawt... so freaking hot. the second part of this series is not only sweet and well developed have i mentioned it is HAWT. like how Zane has brought out Liams softer side and showed him that being kind to Caleb will get him what he wants from his pup not just spoil him. and OMG JJ is an amazing narrator love the fact that he gives each character their own voice bringing them to life for me and not just reads in a flat monotone voice.

Puppy Play with a Twist

This is book 2 of this trilogy in the Fate of The Fallen Universe. I love Zane and how he is with Caleb. Liam is on a huge learning curve but I love it. Desi is still scary. I loved how J.J. Jenness narrated this book.

entertaining

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes
What did I like about the story? imersive story, interesting characters and good pace. Characters and story are developing some good depth. I liked how Zain becomes the balance Liam and Caleb need and watching their relationship take shape.

Narrator comment: JJ Jenness has done a reasonable job narrating Alpha. I found it a little flat at times, and I'm not convinced the characters voices really do them justice, but it wasn't enough to distract me from the story.

Kinky puppy play

Can a man be happy living as a pup? He can with the right dog walker. This was a lot sweeter than I thought it was going to be. And now I want to know more. Can their happiness continue now that it's the three of them together?
Narrator JJ Jenness does a good job.

This one was even better than the first ~

I loved this book so much that I listen to it all in one go. Caleb is the cutest puppy ever, and I'm so happy about the new entry, Zain. If Liam is the strong and hard master, Zain is the good and protective alpha, Caleb needs. They all together make this story works perfectly well. I usually don't like mmm so much, but this time I fell in love with the dynamic and the characters. Now I can't wait for the next one to comes out *^* ♡

thank you for the acx audio

Thank you for the acx audio, I voluntarily give this a honest review. Caleb and Liam move to a new location, Liam has a werewolf babysit for him, with the stubborn human strike something more in Zain. can a werewolf, human and vampire come together it makes a whole for all three of them. great book but the narrator did an ok job.

Better than the first book

This was way better than the first book, or I'm just getting use to the narrator.
Still not my normal kind of book but I'm going to listen to them all. Book 1 here I come.

For dark Bdsm Fans

I'd recommend it to anyone into Dark Bdsm plots because they'd love it. But I'm more into M. A. Innes caregiver dynamics and Doms than something out of comfort zones so it didn't work for me.

How to train your human puppy

Zain is one messed up werewolf. Though that fits in with the vampire and his human puppy.
Having both his master and alpha to take care of him Caleb is slowly turning in to a very content puppy, and when a few alterations are made, all are more happy for it.
Even if it's not easy to train your employer in to being a better dog owner.

I continued this story on audio book, and the narrator is growing on me. The story had me in all kinds of stitches while laughing and embarrassed from the steamy scenes.
