Summary

Alexa O'Brien is a rarity among supernaturals.

A hunter of supernatural rogues, she's a werewolf with unusual but extraordinary power. Power that fiercely draws her to Arys, the intriguing sexy-as-sin vampire who awakens her dark side.

What they create together is dangerous and binding, a unique but massive force that threatens her humanity and tests the love she possesses for someone else.

When Alexa's womanizing former lover and pack Alpha is framed for murder, he turns to her for help. She would like nothing more than to watch karma at work but as the body count rises, long buried secrets are exposed. Alexa is forced to face the painful truth that not everyone is who she thinks they are.

Not even her.

once bitten

**I enjoyed the narration of this book. This was the first Puckett Ive heard and she did well with all the different characters. It was easy to follow along as it had a love triangle between Alexa, Aris and Chaz. Each male bringing different desires and connections to the table. This kept the story going but I think the power/emotional connection between Alexa and each love interest was downplayed a bit and could have been more of the focus. So I feel like while this had a love triangle the focus was on the back story and setting up the rest of the series. I enjoyed the main character as a strong female lead outside of the bedroom but she was so back and forth with her feelings its hard to tell where she will go for the rest of the series. The story has a bit of a twist and has a mild cliffhanger. Good start to the series

Compelling

The narrator did a fantastic job of giving the main character voice and bringing her to life. The story kept me hooked throughout. Wasn't crazy about how she judged people. Seemed okay for people she knew to kill but not others. Also the alpha was definitely not a normal alpha you read about so that was different. All in all the entire story was compelling.

A different kind of wolf story

I really enjoyed the twist in this shifter book. Trina did an excellent job in creating this shifter world that was a bit different than you would normally find, and the storyline keeps you engaged until the very end. I’m looking forward to listening to book 2 in the series. Sarah Puckett also did a good job in bringing Alexa’s characters to life.

A special kind of wolf!

Alexa is an Alpha wolf, but that is not all she is. She attracts all kinds of supernaturals with her powers. There is one powerful vampire and a sweet wolf after her. She will have to decide what's best for her. Lots of action, drama and a great paranormal world building.
The narration was awesome. Smooth voice.

Alexa does not hunt until the end

This book started of with a bang. I love when a the heroine is strong and independent and can take care of herself. As the book progresses there begins a shift in the book. I thought this book was going to have Alexa as this bounty hunter who is going to take out the bad guys but her character becomes this horny reckless character.

For most of the book she is trying to not have sex with Arys, the resident hot vampire, and when she does she hates him but continues having sex with him. Then she feels guilty and has sex with Shaz who she states that she loves. I have not idea why she is written this way but the back and forth between guys was a bit to much for me. I do not understand the justification on how it is okay to have sex with two guys and claim that she loves one of them. The only reason she stopped having sex with Arys is because he put a stop to it. This book could have continued with Alexa having sex with Arys and she would have continued feeling bad about it but not stopping.

The whole plot of the book seemed to be put on the back burner because of Alexa's indecision and craziness. I do not know if I want to continue a series in which the heroine uses the excuse of being power hunger, which makes her horny, as a reason to just sleep with someone whom she does not care about and claiming love in the next breathe to someone else.

The narration was good and it is unfortunate that I could not enjoy due to Alexa's escapades.

oh the suspense

This was not only a great PNR but had a great suspenseful story as well. It was a fun mix of paranormal creature and powers. I love when a character is just developing their powers and anything is possible at that point. I can't wait to see where Alexa goes from here.

Sarah did a fantastic job of giving all these characters life. I loved the feeling and variance she gives each character. Great job!

This was okay book

This book wasn’t what I thought it was, I thought it was an action packed bad azz female alpha. There is a lot of self doubt and inner dialogue which really isn’t my kind of book. The story was good of wise and the narrator brought the story alive.

Epitome...

I adore this book and series. Sarah Puckett did a good job. How she said the word "epitome" got me though. After not having listened to an audiobook since the 90s, I was pleasantly surprised.

Revised:
I think they fixed the mispronunciation of epitome. Also, to those that think maybe this series isn't action packed enough... Give it a little time and I promise the series will not disappoint. The character development is amazing throughout and you will fall madly in love with the characters you thought you loathed.

Not your typical alpha

This is a paranormal romance about an Alpha werewolf huntress. Her growing attraction to a badass Vampire and a sideline dalliance with a werewolf friend, she is also attracted too. She gets drawn into a case of solving several murders all involving her ex alpha and his love interests. In the end she unwittingly is a victim.
I was gifted this audible book by the narrator Sarah Puckett, who did an excellent job, for a fair and honest review, thank you.

Wild ride

Werewolves witches vampires and demon! This book is definitely a wild ride packed full of supernaturals. I honestly had no idea where the book was going. I loved Alexia she’s a badass Alpha with a serious attraction to a powerful vampire. Can’t wait to see where book 2 takes us in this wild journey of Alexia’s life. I thought the narration was lacking excitement and voice inflection but don’t let that stop you the story is fantastic and everyone’s taste in narrators is different

It was ok

This book had a good premise and I really enjoyed the first few chapters but the narration became distracting and the dialogue too dull. This narrator’s use of inflection and tone seemed really odd to me and was quite distracting to the story. A lot of the dialogue seem to go on and on, get in the way of story progression. Aside from those two things, the story itself was decent and the chemistry entertaining.
