Publisher's Summary

Lost. Stolen. Forgotten...until the Alphabits step in.

A Team A.L.P.H.A. spinoff series.

Patton Ryder has always taken pride in the differences between him and his twin brother, Ozzy. But now that Ozzy is mated and has a growing family, Patton is starting to realize that maybe being completely different isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Axel Wilson is extremely protective of his former street crew, a bunch of child thieves who are under the care of his mentor, Saul Hagin. But Saul is dead, and Saul’s mate Ira has dollar signs where his heart should be. Not knowing what else to do, Axel makes a call for help, not realizing that his problem is going to land smack dab in front of the Alphabits, and drop him right on top of his true mate’s lap.

Just because they’re mates doesn’t mean Patton trusts the former thief, but the more they dig into the case and Axel’s past, the more he realizes that Axel has a giant heart full of love that has never been returned the way it ought to. But that gentle heart might be forever scarred if they can’t rescue the kids from Ira’s cold machinations soon enough.

The Alphabits aren’t vigilantes. These former soldiers and officers of the law have to do things by the book - even when it tears them apart to do so. But once all their ducks are in a row, the bad guys had better beware! You do not want this team of protective alphas on your tail.

This is the fifth in the Alphabits series, and should be read in order for maximum enjoyment. You can expect to find naughty, knotty scenes of steamy passion, along with a lot of potty-mouth language and some violence. Be ready for a go-go dancing snow leopard, the rolliest and polliest of hedgehogs, and the first appearance of a vortex in the Team ALPHA world. HEA definitely included, intended for 18+ readers only. Seriously, would you expect anything less from Susi Hawke and Crista Crown?

Love this series

I was so happy that Patton found his mate sooner rather then later in this series. Axel broke my heart. Having everything you own fit into a backpack was too much for me. I loved that he cared so much for the kids & made the sacrifice to contact the Alphabits (copers) to try and save them from Ira who was a nasty POS. I wished he would have been snagged by STAHP & turned into minced meat. The rules he made up for the street kids was just wrong! The story is not only the mating of Axel & Patton but the investigation in finding the kids and once finding them, finding good homes for them. I'm glad that Maddie stayed with them and became part of their family. I don't recall them ever saying "I love you" to each other. I may be wrong but I just don't remember it. I would love seeing more of the MC's in this series in their shifted forms running & playing.

Oh Pattycakes

I love this series, I've really enjoyed getting more of the dynamics between the twins in this one, plus it brought it back into the group story, making it more of one continuous story, which is my favorite kind of series as well as bringing some ALPHA team favorites back. Solo's narration has been consistent and great throughout the series and he keeps up the good work with this one, Overall a great listen.

Another great Alphabits story!

Oh, how I love this Alphabits series!
I loved this book. Patton, the alpha wolf who’s the twin brother of last story’s one, is a fun and protective one, and Axel, the omega snow leopard with a Dom streak to him, grew up on the streets and is a tough cookie…
In this book the team gets to work on rescuing the kids on Axel’s former crew from the streets, and this all with all the Susi Hawke and Crista Crown good feelings!

John Solo's narration is the usual extra addition to a good story, and it’s so expressive that you can't help but love listening to it!

Another great rescue and romance

This is Patton and Axel's story. Patton is a member of the Alphabits team, and is assigned to a case of reported children being used in a minor crime ring, but not being taken care of.

Axel has made it out of the home for criminal youth, but when the original leader dies, he fears for the children he left behind. He has tried to help, but he is out of options. So, when he happens across a business card from years ago, he feels it is his only option left.

Axel agrees to meet with members of the team, but he never expected to be overcome by his overwhelming need for the big guy who has come along to question him. The two waste no time, as Axel's heat had come on unexpectedly.

Now it is up to the team, with the help from Axel, to find this band of young thieves and find the man in charge of the operation. What is left behind is a group of children who are very close knit, and used to lives of crime. But, of course, the team finds the best solution possible, and our MCs get their HEA.

I thought John Solo did a great job with the narration. His character differentiation is done well, and his pacing is steady throughout the story.

Patton, Axel and Maddie

Patton and Axel come from two different worlds, but together they make a beautiful couple. I liked that this wasn’t an insta-love and that there is even a moment of doubt for the two. Though it didn’t start off on a positive note, the two do learn to trust each other.

The two work together with the help of the other Alphabits to save specific street kids Axel grew up with. Getting them off the streets and into loving homes.

Their story is funny, sweet and even a little emotional at times, especially when it comes to Maddie. I loved that they were surrounded by so much love and friendship. I think it really helped Axel and Maddie feel like they were wanted and were finally home.

Both Maddie and Spencer’s story have been my absolute favorite so far. I was glad Spencer was in this story a well.

John Solo does another amazing job with giving each character their own voice and bringing on the emotions at the right moments.

Funny And Wonderful

This is the fifth book in The Alphabits Series a spinoff of The Team ALPHA Series. Reading the other series first might be a good idea you don’t have to but there is reference to other teams. And this series might be more enjoyable for having the read the other series. The plot was entertaining, and it was steady throughout the book. A captivating story with wonderful characters. I loved Maddie a cute little hedgehog shifter. The characters were developed and thought out. Patton an Alpha and Axel an Omega are the MC’s of this book and they are mates. The narration was good it wasn't monotone and there were different voices. I can recommend this book as a good read/listen. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

Children for everyone

It’s finally Patton’s turn to find his mate and in the process, comes across a group of children that need the love and support the Alphabits can give them. I really love how Patton’s friendship with Lance’s little brother continues to blossom and also provides the means to support other kids.

I also really enjoyed hearing more about the newest team member and the hazing he receives. I look forward to listening to his story when it’s released.

Patton and Axel find their way to trust and love.

Patton and Axel find their way to trust and love. i enjoyed the narration of this story and it really brought to life the characters.

Finding their mate is amazing, but there are still things that they have to work out. Trust and respect take time and they find their way through communication and trial and error. I really enjoyed Axel in this story, he was a strong and independent man and he found a way to be himself and be mated to a strong man.

I enjoyed the development of the different kids that they were searching for and how special each of them were. I loved the character of Maddie, who is just the cutest little hedgehog.

Twisted is the fifth book in the Alphabits series and i am enjoying each new book! This is a good addition to the rest of the series.

Amazing series!

Yes we get Patton's happy ending. I love Axel and Patton together even though I wanted to smack Patton in the back of the head for being a bozo. Just everything about this story is amazing and John Solo just makes in even more with his narration. I just love listening to this story. Just another amazing addition!

Another fantastic Alphabits story!

This is another fantastic Alphabits story! I love the camaraderie of the team and their partners. I really enjoyed the slight twist with Patton's mate taking control in a special physical way. (No spoilers.) It was fun to see the powerful man cede control that way. And when his brother walked in on them...hilarious! Good story that worked out well for all the kids, too. Happy endings all around. It was great to see the new guy start to fit in, even though he is a cat shifter, and - yeah - there is a little bit of good natured hazing that goes on.

Great narration! Pretty easy to tell the various characters apart.

Another great story for the Alphabits

I love the universe Susi and Crista created. The audio for this book was very good, John Solo really brings the characters to life. This was my first book with him and I really enjoyed his voice.

The story was sweet and heart clenching at times, loved Patton and Axle, the love and heat between them and the fact that it wasn't insta love between them
