Publisher's Summary

More than anything, struggling tech support specialist Bradley Evans wants an alpha male lover. He thinks he's found his perfect match, but when his domineering stockbroker boyfriend goes too far, Bradley wonders if his flexible, mindful neighbor might be just what he needs.

Ward Linden teaches autistic middle schoolers and is sexy and kind; but he isn't quite the alpha Bradley's been looking for. Do nice guys always have to finish last? 

Bradley explores what it means to be alpha male in this steamy, humor-laced gay romance. Due to its sexual content, this book is for adults only.

A fast listen, but great characters!

This is the first book from Sionnach Wintergreen and I was impressed by the characters, especially Ward.

All Bradley wants is an Alpha to love him and take care of him, and he thinks he finds his perfect alpha in Jackson. And while I enjoyed getting to know Bradley and Ward, Ms. Wintergreen also writes believable villains as well. Jackson is a horrible, emotional manipulative alpha who treats Bradley horribly. You can see the abuse and the control Jackson has over Bradley because when Bradley meets Ward and Ward explains that alphas, true alphas, are nothing like Jackson, he thinks his relationship with Jackson is perfect. As Bradley truly realizes that the image of a perfect alpha in his head needs to be changed, he realizes that Ward might not be his perfect ideation and his vision of what is perfect needs to change. And Bradley's mother is a...well, bitch. I couldn't stand her and in the end, I'm happy that Bradley realized what he needed in life.

Sweet, sexy, and engaging

Zen Alpha is perfectly titled. Ward is about as zen as it gets. The story starts off a bit slow as Ward and Bradley meet and get to know each other, but it does pick up and even those slower parts of the story are interesting. Bradley is something of a contradiction - high-strung and quick to lose his cool in most things, but timid and submissive in relationships. Ward is calm and easy-going, even when he's taking charge, so these two make for quite the pair when they do finally admit their attraction. And once they do come together, it is nothing short of scorching hot. There is some angst and Bradley gets a much needed eye-opener by way of tragedy, but there is also humor and sweetness between this sexy duo. Hugh Bradley does a wonderful job with the narration, making this one an entertaining and enjoyable listen.

Sweet romance

This is a sweet m/m romance that I enjoyed watching grow and develop. I liked that Bradley learned what a true alpha really is and not a fantasized idol version of an alpha. Ward was sweet and patient with Bradley, and they made the perfect fit. Jackson (ex) was a selfish narcissistic peacock without substance. Bradley's mom was a waste of time and space and was a materialistic unsupportive, superficial vessel.

Sweet & Quick Listen

A sweet and quick story with engaging characters and a good storyline. At times I wanted to hit Bradley because of his total obsession with alphas to the point that he couldn't see the perfect man for him right in front of him! Ward is a wonderful person who doesn't need to show off to prove that he's an alpha. He's confident, caring, loving, and a truly all around good person, if only Bradley could get his head out of the clouds! I totally hated Bradley's mother but at least his father is great and loving. The narrator did a good job with the characters and the story overall, although at times it almost sounded like there was an echo. But it did not detract from the story and it is an overall good listen.
