Ben Broyles is a billionaire, polar bear shifter, and hotel mogul haunted by his tragic past. He built his magical ice hotel as a sanctuary for the supernatural. When the evil goblins who murdered his clan check in, Ben knows they'll do everything they can to destroy all he's built. With the future of his hotel - and his life - on the line, Ben must stop the goblins and find justice before it's too late.
Sally is the curvy and capable manager of the Wondernasium Hotel who thinks she has everything handled. A whole conference of supernaturals with crazy dietary restrictions? Handled. Guests who try to eat the other guests? No problem.
But there's one thing Sally can't handle: her desire for her boss. When a steamy encounter in Ben's office turns her entire world upside down, Sally has a choice: will she embrace the magic within? Or will she flee from her true self?
This paranormal romance for adults includes sexy bear shifters, interfering supernatural bartenders, explosive magic training, and a workplace romance so hot it will melt even the coldest heart.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Definitely. It's nice & short, so easy to listen to in one setting, but has excellent character development and a well-placed plot, so it doesn't feel rushed or drag on.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Alpha's Domain?
Sally's unexpected electrifying moment ties it all together & ends up helping Ben more than either could have imagined.
Have you listened to any of Veronica Heart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, and if you haven't listened to one before, it might be a good idea to listen to the sample first. Veronica's voice and speech patterns are a bit different, and I see some other reviewers felt that detract from the story. I found that it helped me appreciate the otherworldliness of the setting & feel the supernatural aspects better.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Definitely, and it's a great length to do so.
Any additional comments?
This is the first book in this series, and I loved it and plan on listening to the others. I believe characters from the previous books in the series make quick cameos, but not in ways that will spoil them if you listen out of order.

Again AJ Tipton has hit this one out of the park (sorry for the cliche). The authors developed the characters in a short time. I enjoy their books because they are something I can stick in between other long books I listen to. However, I would have liked Sally and Ben to have a little more time together. I think there was so much that could have happened if the book was longer. But, again, I like the short ones. The story was cute, especially the couch. lol Who would have thought? I really don't like the way the narrator narrates the book. I have to struggle through her inflections (none) and her drawn out words. I would prefer a different narrator for the AJ Tipton books. Veronica Heart is not my favorite and I will have to think about it next time I get one to listen to that has her narrating. Sorry, I personally struggle through each time I listen to one of her books. I received this book free for an unbiased review, which as you can tell, I have given.

Another great story from that dynamic duo, A J Tipton :-) Worth a credit or a buy - wish I could transport myself to the Wondernasium Hotel right now ;-)
Now I want me a polar bear shifter like Ben Broyles!

Short fantasy story with a good plot and characters. Ben is a polar bear shifter that owns a magical ice hotel. Evil goblins killed his clan and he needs proof before they are brought to justice.
Sally is Ben's hotel manager. She has a big crush on her boss. She doesn't know about supernaturals until her world comes crashing down on her.
The narrator is ok but not as good as most I have heard. The authors did a great job creating a complete story in such a short amount of time. No need for breaks. You can easily listen to it in one sitting.

This was a funny shifter story and would get five stars except for the narrator. She literally says three words then pauses. Sometimes it seems in the middle of some words. Although this was a quick read I had to listn in two stages because the narrator irretated me so.
Sally is a witch and does not know it. She runs an ice hotel for a billionaire whoes guest are paranormals. She explains strange events away as her own mind playing tricks on her. What happens when reality crashes in?

This quick read was actually pretty good. It was quick and steamy with a bit of a twist. It even had me giggling at times. This only drawback was the narrator. She was a bit dry and sounded like she was delivering the news, or like one of those automated voices.
Otherwise, this was a good listen, and despite the narrator I enjoyed the story very much. Perfect for a quick drive, or a few minutes alone.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Maybe.. I would recommend the eBook or hard copy, not the audio book.
How could the performance have been better?
Maybe the Narrator could read or listen to books about Character Voices, etc..I've listened to another book read by this Narrator and the expierence was similar to this one, kinda.. painful. I'm just saying.
Any additional comments?
I'm sorry but the Narrator ruined it for me, she sounds like a Robot.
She reads in the same tone and speed for every character and every situation.
Overall the story line was ok, I would have enjoyed it more if I would have read it instead of listening to it.
There must have been every supernatural creature mentioned in this book which made it interesting.
I liked that Ben was a Bear Shifter, it was a different twist from the usual wolf or tiger shifter.
I also liked how Sally taps into of her power or rather who she thinks about to access her power =)
