When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair - and a spine of solid steel....
LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah's recovery. Still, she can't help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has - however fleeting their affair is destined to be. But when Aric's life is endangered, Rowan must ask herself what she's willing to sacrifice in the name of love, for the man fated to be her Bondmate.
Great second book to add to the brand new series about sizzling hot and handsome ex Navy SEALS now in a top secret Alpha pack made up of men who are were-shifters of one kind or another and there's Sorcerers and a Sealy Prince too. They are each gifted with a different supernatural power when they were turned which helps as they battle against evil paranormals.
Aric, a were-wolf shifter and member of the Alpha pack, has been captured and experimented on, along with other members of the team, but there's and instant attraction when Rowen (an off duty LAPD cop) stumbles across him whilst she secretly becomes part of the rescue team and it leaves Aric brooding and battling against his mating urges.
A hot and emotionally charged action packed plot with sub plots filled with interesting and amusing characters who all help to invigorate and bring tension and passion to this listen. This series has a similar feel to JRWard's BDB with quick and witty one liners together with the loyalty bonds formed from the 'brotherhood' fellowship.
Looking forward to Black Moon - book released in December - which is Kalen and Mackenzie's story.
Worth a credit? A paranormal/romance fan's dream listen - so that's a definite YES.

I am so disappointed in this book. The first one was quite promising and I was looking forward to this read. The main story line which carries through both books is good, the characters are likeable, and the reader does a really nice job. Sounds like a great formula for a light read when you don't want to think too much. This book however came completely off the tracks when the author decided to use one sex scene after another to fill pages. On top of that the "love" story in this book followed the exact same formula as the first book and is completely overdone in this genre. Come up with something original already!
The bottom line is that I am not interested enough in the story line to live through the sex and love denial crap to read another one of the books in this series. I would suggest the Jane Yellowrock series if you want something with a lot less sex and a strong heroine who deals in the supernatural.

After reading the 1st book in the series, I was under-whelmed and hesitant to continue. Reviews were stronger for the second release so I was hopeful the story would pick up. I did not find that to be the case. The characters are well-developed and that is a plus. The over-arching premise is good and that's what ultimately enticed me to continue. I think it's the pace of the plot that's dragging it down. It's slow and predictable. Also, while I usually like a good dose of sex along with my paranormal romance, I found myself just fast forwarding through those scenes in this book. While the promise is there, ultimately the story just doesn't deliver any excitement. I've been on quite a paranormal listening streak lately, and I can think of at least a half dozen other books I'd rather go listen to again rather than continue in this vein. As far as the narration goes, the narrator has a style of delivery that isn't very nuanced. It's very forceful, deliberate and at times unnecessarily dramatic. While she gives each character a distinct voice which I fully appreciated, there's an overall tone of either derision or disgust with maybe a pinch of anger. So many sentences seemed to end in an implied "G*d d*mn it!" Sometimes that's appropriate for the content of the conversation, most of the time, however, I wanted the narrator to dig deeper and find the nuance and subtlety. Overall, not a horrible book, just horribly average. I'm going to pass on the rest of the series.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The first part yes; second half, definitely not. Although the book is definitely better than the first, it was predictable at best.
Would you recommend Savage Awakening to your friends? Why or why not?
Not really! I thought that I would be able to get into the series, if I tried listening to the second book, given my dismal review of the first one. Unfortunately, it just didn't work for me.
Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?
Was Savage Awakening worth the listening time?

This one does not disappoint. This series interests me so much due to all the different species. It's well written and it holds my interest and it makes me look foward to the next book. If you love the paranormal I'm sure you'll love this. Just make sure you get book 1 first.

I thought Savage Awakening is just as good if not better than Primal Law in a lot of ways! I really liked how Aric isn't whom he seemed in the first book...he so much more!
As Aric struggles with blaming himself for getting his team in trouble those six months ago, he ends up finding his mate in the sister of one of his fellow pack members...a member that was abducted because of him. Knowing how arrogent Aric was in the first one, I was really surprised to see how tender and unselfish he was in here. The emotion and honesty he shows are truly honorable...and he is definitely a favorite of mine now!
While I like Kirsten Potter a lot, I still like her better with the highlander books I have listened to. In here, I often got confused between the characters, not sure who was talking to who because she doesn't really change voices much. Despite that however, the steamy scenes, which are many :) , were well done!
The characters in this series are only getting better...and I really look forward to the next book, Black Moon, that focuses on Kalen. He goes through a lot in this book, and I am really anxious to see what happens next.

Would you try another book from J. D. Tyler and/or Kirsten Potter?
Her general plots and characters are not bad, but the immature dialogue can stand improvement. The swearing adolescent macho male werewolf attitude gets tiresome. I like the other characters, and that keeps me coming back for the rest of the series.
Would you recommend Savage Awakening to your friends? Why or why not?
No, I do not think any of my friends would tolerate the immature characters.
Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
What would have made this romance irresistible?
If the angry macho males would grow up.

I totally love this alpha pack.. Now we have the events from the end of book one leading this story... Eric gotta pay his dues... He spends all of the beginning of this book held captive and being tested on... I loved his rescue.. Great action scene..
Don't really like his mate... I get she is suppose to be this tough cop but I just don't like her attitude about the whole wolf shifter thing, even when she finds out her brother is a shifter... Also she has been a dream walker her entire life, so why freak out about shifters...
Narration was superb!
Great credit or buy if u plan to invest in all the books in the series... These are not stand alone... Better if read in order... So I recommend credit this one...

I love the story of Aric and Rowan. Until I learned Aric’s story, I just thought he was a conceited ass. But, I really felt so bad for him once the story unraveled.
I love Rowan and her attitude.
However... I will say that although I love the new characters that are being introduced into the group.... i felt like book one was a better story.
Looking forward to the next book!
Shifters, romance, suspense, magic and a great narrator kept my attention, so that I listened straight through.
