Publisher's Summary

Rise to Alpha

With Alpha blood coursing through his veins, charismatic wolf Jake Louvière can no longer deny his true nature. As his beast demands his rightful place within Acadian Wolves, he's forced to choose between killing his Alpha and leaving New Orleans forever. When a mysterious woman trespasses into the bayou, Jake is instinctively wary of the creature that is not wolf. Inexplicably drawn to her, he attempts to resist her magic as it weaves a seductive spell. As quickly as she appears, the dangerous beauty is kidnapped by a powerful New York vampire, and Jake swears retribution against an old adversary.

For centuries Kai Beckett concealed her true identity from those who would steal her ancient powers. Risking everything to save her sister, she searches for the Alpha who'd left San Diego to return to his Cajun roots. Jake, a mate worthy of her spirit, seeks to tame her wild nature, but she is not one to easily submit. As Kai surrenders to her attraction to the Alpha, she embraces her darkest fantasies.

From New Orleans to Southern California, Jake and Kai are surrounded by intrigue and danger. Learning to trust each other, they fight lethal enemies and the irresistible connection binding them together. As they spiral into an erotic adventure, will Jake acknowledge Kai as his mate? With a nefarious enemy seeking to capture her, will Jake rise to Alpha, saving both Kai and his pack?

what happened?

I really struggled to finish this book in numerous ways. What a disapointment!. Beware contains numerous bad sex scenes.
Where was the story?. Buried between the sheets and the trash receptacle? The dialog for the Heroine was mostly "what?". Or "Wa?" For the hero, instead of who's your daddy?! it was," who is your master?"" Who is your Alpha?" And then repeat.. plus the heroine echoing the statement of "you are my master." " You are my Alpha!"
I don't fault the Narrator ,who most likely, had a hard time getting through this book as well perhaps..! it may be the worst book I have ever listened to on audio.
Character development. Character interaction was where? The Author pushed the reader out instead of pulling the reader in.
There wasn't any of the chemistry that creates empathy or sympathy. where was the Authors bff? It was her duty to read this and at least try to stop the Author from this train wreck.

Up until the end of the book there wasn't any emotional connection to the two main characters.. I won't even call it animalistic, as I don't want to insult any animals. Basically I could not relate I was lost in this book,and not in a good way. I felt this experiance was a nightmare.

I keep wondering, what was this author thinking? I have actually read other books from this author and I can only say just wow I am so disappointed. this is not credit Worthy and I plan to return it as soon as possible.
This Author is capable of much more than cold smut.

glad I listened but not my favorite

I have been enjoying the series. This book was my least favorite to date. Felt rushed and lacked the depth of others in the series. Hoping my new favorite vamps book is as great as Leopolds.

Exciting Adventure!

I love this book and the whole series! Exciting Adventure combined with sizzling erotic sex and the sexy hot characters makes for a book you can't put down. Kym.grosso@AutismInRealLife.com Grosse weaves a tantalizing story and narrator Ryan West brings it to vivid life. I highly recommend this book. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series.

Great love story

This audio book is easy to listen to and is full love ,sex, and fighting for what is right. The mating is awesome for wolves and I couldn't stop listening to it. Ryan West did a awesome job at narrating this story and series. This is a continuing story of immortals of New Orleans and with vampires, witches, demons, and of course werewolves. I hope you enjoy this audio book as I did .

repetitive

it was possibly the most irritating book I've read all year! Repetitive in word usage and story. The author doesn't show you the story she just tells you.

Jake

Would you consider the audio edition of Jake to be better than the print version?

Oh yes!!! Ryan West just is such an awesome narrator. He just makes the book come alive

What other book might you compare Jake to and why?

Kym's whole series, they all build on each other.With Ryan reading he makes you feel that you are in the series.

Which scene was your favorite?

What scene???? There are so many... I loved when she just slightly changed and put the vampire in his place and feeding his fish is hand.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The outside timid figure does not show the deep strength within.

Any additional comments?

Kym's stories get better and better. With Ryan as the narrator, every book is a hit.

Lots and lots of sex

But also lots of intrigue, danger and wondering what will happen next to the vampire, the Wolf and the unknown one.

great story but flawed

my biggest concern with this was the over use of the phrase "he/she lost his/her words". There are other ways of saying the same thing.
Otherwise, I loved it and look forward to the next
