I hurt, break and kill for a living. The Family point, I deliver. But this time, they ask too much. This time, they want me to marry the one woman who knows my secret. She has reason to hate me, I know, but I'll take her, I'll break her, and I'll make her mine. That's the only way I can keep my secret.

I read this book before I got it on Audible and really enjoyed it. Have read the second in series as well and am looking forward to reading book 3.
It's a great story fast paced with great characters. And kept my interest from start to finish. We get introduced to the characters who will all get there on book. This book is Blaine and Mira's story.
But I didn't like the male narrator, I think this is just me though as many people have said he was great though they had not read the book before, perhaps I imagined Blaine sounding different. Please don't let it put you off the book though, but I was given the audible in exchange for a honest review so that's what I have given.
I love Nora Ash's books, as they always keep me turning the pages, she is a automatic buy for me. You know you will get a great story/charachters and real page turner.

Being mated to an alpha was never part of Leigh's plans. As much as the man who's claimed her as his heats up her bed and sets her body on fire, she's not ready to give up everything for an alpha she hardly knows. Especially not after all the lies and deceit he's spun to keep his real identity hidden from her.

But when her alpha's scheming enemies learn of her existence, there's no one but him left to save her.

Will he sacrifice everything he is to rescue the one he calls his mate?

Book 3 takes off right where 2 ends, with Leigh coming round after being kidnapped by 2 of the mayor's goons.
Will Leon turn up to rescue her? Will she rescue him in return? No spoilers you have to listen to find out. I have enjoyed this series about the Alphas (they do have a soft side) and hope the author will do more.
This is a fast paced story and never drags, if you enjoyed this series I think you would enjoy the Darkness series by the same author.

Leigh's career is in ruins, her dreams shattered - and her nights haunted by the memory of a man she shouldn't want. When an exclusive invitation to partake in Mattenburg's annual Masquerade drops through her letterbox, she sees a chance to take back control over her life. If she can find a good scoop, she'll have her job back in no time - and her mind off the stranger who claimed her so completely before disappearing into the night. But gilded invitations don't come for free, and Leigh's about to find out just how steep the price for entering the Masquerade will be....

Masquerade starts 1 week after book 1 finished. No spoilers, book 2 is as good as book 1, its fast paced and doesn't drag at all. Book 2 gives you some of the answers to questions from the first book, the main one being who is the Alpha who saved Leigh? Definitely recommend if you enjoyed the first book. Will be waiting for book 3 to become available.
Thought the narrator was very very realistic in certain parts!

I never thought being saved from pain, degradation and death could come at such a twisted price. He is nightmares made flesh, the living embodiment of everything I fear. Yet in my darkest hour, he is the one who comes for me. If he demands my submission in return, how can I deny him?

If you loved liked the darkness series by this author you have to read/listen to this. More dominant Alphas. This is a fast paced story that doesn't drag. The length of Alpha: Taken is 70 mins so it's great if you got a hour or so to kill, will definitely be on the look out for part 2 in audio. I have actually read this series but it was nice to chill out and have the story read to me. I have not long got into audio books and I am now seeing the benefit. The narrator is very clear and expressive.
