Publisher's Summary

I never thought being saved from pain, degradation and death could come at such a twisted price.

He is nightmares made flesh, the living embodiment of everything I fear. Yet in my darkest hour, he is the one who comes for me.

If he demands my submission in return, how can I deny him?

Taken is the first book in Nora Ash's dirty, suspense-filled Omegaverse serial. Want your alphas dominating and your romance scorching? This is the story for you.

Passionate and Sexy and Erotic, Oh My!

After reading this, there is no doubt of Nora Ash’s ability to deliver sexy, hot, and erotic stories. Alpha: Taken is the first book in what appears to be a three book serial.

The book is a quick listen, which is nice, because it can be done in one day. The narrator, Thurlow Holmes, does a fantastic job delivering the story, and makes you feel every fearful, embarrassing, wanton, and passionate moment the main character experiences.

It’s a scorching read and can’t wait for the next installment.

Please note that I did receive a free Audible copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.

Dark and different Omegaverse

Would you consider the audio edition of Alpha: Taken to be better than the print version?

They're about the same. I think I prefer the book, but this is the first audio book I've listened to. It's hard to get used to hearing someone voice a character that I've read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have to go with Leod. The heroine got on my nerves at times but Leod maintained his mystery and drew me in.

What does Thurlow Holmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The woman who reads the book really helped me feel Leigh's emotions in ways that I didn't in the book. Her fear, anger, etc. really showed in the reader's voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are definitely parts that caused an extreme reaction. The danger that Leigh faces when she is caught in the park and her fear when she realizes that she's trapped made me feel like I was right there with her. And there are some other parts *cough, cough* that caused an extreme reaction.

Any additional comments?

Very dirty, very hot and very good! I love that this is a relatively new paranormal theme. There aren't many books written about Omegas, especially when they aren't shifters. I've read the rest of the series and there are some scenes in those that I'd really like to find out just how they're going to be handled by the woman who reads this.

Sizzling

I loved this book Nora Ash has her own style of writing and she does an excellent job of romance and action and everything else. This is my first audiobook she can add to the list getting the right narrater. I am so glad that I got chosen to get an advance copy that's how I found out about her but she not like every other out there her books get hot, so you may need a cold shower. She nailed it with the alpha's in this series, it's more than that they also have a senseative side. Get ready for a story that will have you panting. She doesn't do anything in half measures she gives you everything you want and then some. There are no down sides to the story I had a little trouble going from dreaded to audiobook but that was me but after an hour I was okay but that's on me not her the book is worth every penny you don't know what your missing out on

Amazing Performance!!!

Prior to listening to this audiobook, I didn't know anything about the story or the universe in which this takes place. However, after listening to this amazing story, I'm reading the last two books to see how everything turns out. The narrator brought a depth to the story that you typically can't get whole reading a book, and now I'll be hearing her voice throughout the rest of the story. I really hope the narrator continues this story!!!

Fast satisfying

The story moves along quickly as it's 7 chapters long. I found the story easy to listen too and keep me interested. I don't believe the main character's name was mentioned in the book. I can't wait to see what's in store for the next book. I can only speculate as to who the alpha is. Hopefully the story continues for these characters. I will be looking to read or listen to the second book soon.

Enjoyable listening

Would you listen to Alpha: Taken again? Why?

I'm sure I'll be listening to it again. I really liked reading the book but listening gave it a slightly different feel which was good.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I think the scene in the press conference in the beginning.

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

Definitely a one sit listen.

Any additional comments?

I listened in the car and got so distracted I missed my turning TWICE.<br/>

More from the Alphas

If you loved liked the darkness series by this author you have to read/listen to this. More dominant Alphas. This is a fast paced story that doesn't drag. The length of Alpha: Taken is 70 mins so it's great if you got a hour or so to kill, will definitely be on the look out for part 2 in audio. I have actually read this series but it was nice to chill out and have the story read to me. I have not long got into audio books and I am now seeing the benefit. The narrator is very clear and expressive.
