Summary

The Joining is a rare gift, binding an alpha and omega for life. But when Kyle and Aidan are bound together, they wonder if destiny has gotten it right this time around.

Kyle has always been a survivor. After losing his own pack at a young age, the orphan has managed to build a decent life for himself inside the Sept of the Green Isle. As apprentice to a quirky shaman, the reclusive omega has come to accept that he will probably always be a lone wolf.

When Aidan, a decorated war hero, returns seeking new members for his pack, the sept erupts with werewolves trying to get the handsome alpha’s attention. Everyone, that is, except Kyle. 

But fate steps in with an unexpected surprise, and the stubborn omega and arrogant alpha will have to try and make peace with one another before it's too late!

Narration has not been edited

The story may be better than the 3 stars I have rated it, but there are so many problems with the narration that it gets in the way of the story.
I like Zachary Liebenstein's voice and his narration is good, but there are multiple repeated words and phrases, sounds going on in the background, he even sounds out and repeats words he has a problem with. At one point he repeated the same phrase 3 times with gaps and noises and sighs... You even get his occasional frustrated comment. It looks to me as if this was released before the audio was edited.
With regards to story, Noah Harris just did too good a job making one of the main characters so unlikeable in the early chapters that I was never won over. But, there is a lot of interesting stuff going on and I kept listening because I wanted to hear more about this world.

Worst audio ever

From phones going off to the narrator swearing when he misreads something This is the worst audio I've ever listened to which is a pity because I was enjoying the story.

A nice short story

Everything you expect from this type of story.
The only slight let down was lack of editing when the narrator made mistakes although the quiet fuck at one point when he can't get a word right was quite funny.

It was ok, narrator bloopers = unexpected laughs.

The book itself is good, I like noah harris books so I kinda expected it to be. The first few woopsies from the narrator were a little annoying, but then the bloopers just got funnier. Wound up busting out in laughter when it was meant to be a serious part.

MUST READ!

If you like the dynamic between a defiant, headstrong Omega and a tough yet tender alpha, this is the story for you.

I listen to this book three times and the story is exceptional. I plan to revisit this one very soon!

Great story

I received an ARC of this audible for my honest review. I really enjoyed being able to listen to this book while I was working. My only issue with this story is that you can hear background noise throughout the reading. Zachary is a great narrator and loved listening to him bring the characters to life. Kyle is an omega who lost his entire pack and is taken in by another pack but he feels like an outsider and one that doesn't belong. He helps the pack shaman to learn all he can. Aiden is the alpha who always bullied Kyle when they were younger. Aiden has come back from battle and is looking to find an omega to bring back to his new pack. Kyle doesn't want anything to do with Aiden but as the fates will have they both find out that they are each others fated mate. The shaman explained to Kyle about Aiden's upbringing and gave him an idea of why Aiden bullied Kyle. In no way did she say it was okay on what Aiden did but she wanted Kyle to understand that Aiden was also bullied by his own family. Overall I'm glad to see them have a HEA.

Great book and listen.

This is a great story by Noah Harris. I love a good enemies to lovers and this definitely is one. It's great to see Kyle and Adrian relationship develops from enemies to something more. Now I do like Zachary Liebenstein's narration. His voice is definitely nice to listen to but I can see that there still need to be some editing done. However for me it didn't stop me from listening.

loved it

I loved the trope enemies to lovers especially with these two. The way Kyle had then get to know each other seemed a but odd but worked out un the end. My only wish was that it was longer, just when things were changing for the better between them things seemed to go warp speed then just end. Don't get me wrong, I still love it, just wish that endings weren't so rushed and short.
I definitely can't wait to start the next one!!

Not professional reading

It seems this was recorded by being read out loud at home. You can hear tv on in the area. You can even a few times hear the reader’s cellphone buzz. Re-peats some times like he losses his place or trouble with words. You even hear his response to himself for not getting words right.

Well developed

This was a great story with a great storyline and well developed characters. The narrator had great voices for the men, but could use a little work on the female voices. I definitely recommend this book.
