How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

How degrading. Stuck babysitting a woman because his alpha said so. As pride beta, he has better things to do with his time, like washing his impressive mane, hunting down thugs for fun, and chasing tail - sometimes his own, if his lion is feeling playful.

But his babysitting job takes an unexpected turn when the woman he's assigned guard duty over turns out to be his mate. A female threatened by an outside wolf pack. A woman he wants to call his own. A mate who doesn't fall for his charm. Usually betas leave the roaring to the pride's alpha, but in this case, given his level of frustration, he might have to make an exception. And if anyone doesn't like it, they can kiss his furry tail. Rawr!

When a Beta Roars

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Rafkin’s performances?

Michael Rafkin, the narrator for this audiobook gave a strange performance. He couldn't decide on an accent for any character. I found this super annoying, especially since he used a lot of New York accents which were bold sometimes and non existent at others. The way he portrayed the heroine, was equally annoying, all whispery and not in a sexy way. He ruined the book for me.

No.

Michael Rafkin should not narrator romance books. I had to fast forward because his voice is to irritating. I like this series and I'm hoping that the next book is good.

Bad Book Bad Narration

First off I did finish this book but ug it's like a train wreck you just can't stop watching. I think the hero was supposed to come of a flerty and a jockster but comes off as slimmy. I don't no if is just bad writing or the inflections used by the Mr. Rafkin. as whole 3 stars because I finished it

Shifter Lion pride Beta, Hader, and Wolf shifter Arabella

Hader's Alpha assigns him to babysit Wolf shifter Jeff's sister. Harder knows he's too important to be on that duty. When he meets her he gets a strong vibe that Arabella might be his mate. The male wolves from her pack are out to claim her so they can control her inheritance from her shifter Alpha husband. Lots of ugly, funny and sexy things happen to them until the big showdown happens.

Narrator made this a DNF

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I might have enjoyed it if I read it the old fashioned way. Others may, too.

If you’ve listened to books by Eve Langlais before, how does this one compare?

Book 2 in this series was better than book 1, from a writing perspective. Overall, this series wasn't as good as others I've read from her, but it's hard to fairly evaluate it, because I just couldn't get past the narrator.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Rafkin?

I would've cast a woman. There are too many female voices to have a male narrator do it justice.

What character would you cut from When a Beta Roars?

The cousin who was first told of the mating - she's just annoying.

Any additional comments?

The narrator might have been okay if he didn't do ANY female voices. His attempt at female voices was SO BAD that I just couldn't get past it. I listened to about 3/4 of this book and then just gave up. I was gritting my teeth until my jaw hurt.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

It's a fun ride that brings a smile to your face. Entertaining and breezy, sexy and action packed it's another thrill from Eve Langlais.
The story is brought to life by a fantastic narrator, Michael Rafkin. His description of an ice cream confection made my mouth water. He gave the characters very distinctive voices and help bring out their personalities.
Since the story is about wolf and lion expect some gore, but since the story is about people
nobody rolls in it.
The hero gets his girl but having come into her own,this woman is no longer a damsel in distress.
Truly Eve Langlais and Michael Rafkin are a great combination of talents.
So sit back and enjoy the ride.
