Summary

Cursed, mated, and in for the fight of their lives....

Warlock Nate Hawthorne just wants a cup of coffee. Is that too much to ask? Apparently. Because instead of precious caffeine, all he gets is cursed by a pack of werewolves who want to use him for his magic. Now the only way to fix the damage is a mate bond to a grumpy and oh-so-sexy alpha in the rival pack, who happens to hate him. This is so not how he wanted to start his day.

Ian Armitage never intended to take Nate as his mate. The Hawthorne family can't be trusted. Ian knows that better than anyone. The fact that he's lusted after the way-too-gorgeous man for years? Totally irrelevant. Ian's just doing what is necessary to protect his pack. This whole mating arrangement has nothing to do with love and never will. That's his story and he's sticking to it.

Nate and Ian will have to work together if they have any hope of staving off the pack's enemies and averting disaster. That's assuming they can stop arguing (and keep their hands off each other) long enough to save the day....

Contains mature themes.

Wonderful new series

Werewolves, warlocks, vampires and miscellaneous demons this book has it all. Its snarky and heartwarming with a good level of action but essentially its about two damaged people finding each other and allowing themselves to love/ be loved Would highly recommend

Worst narration ever

OMG. Why on earth did they let this person read this book. Couldn’t make it past the first chapter.
Next time I am going to try a sample.
The story could be good but I couldn’t tell you.

Magic and wolves. Perfectly joined

I really enjoyed this book from the very beginning.. The characters were relatable, and plenty of sass and humour, together with action.. Twists and turns leave you guessing what is going to happen next. I just hope there is lots more to come. Pub intended.

Good Listen

This was a nice paranormal listen. I enjoyed the narrator and the author did a good job. I love the snark but sometimes it was a bit much in this particular case. I say this because the story is just from one character's POV. We have to garner how the other character feels by his actions and responses. Other than that, I loved the story line. A little bit of gore, action and smexy. Great narration.
Worth a credit.

Wowsa

Another five-star banger!

Holy s***, two in a row already as we move through 2021.

Look, aside from a majorish plot hole (that may get solved in the next book?? idk), this book was soooooo f-ing good.

I loved Nate and Ian. AH!!!

As usual a misunderstanding that could've been solved as children, really, got these buttholes into their current predicament-and what a predicament it is. These two were sort-of-friends at one point as kids, but then everything turned to s*** and they grew into messy adults. </3

I'm a sucker for the enemies-to-lovers trope, which is kinda weird, because it's never been something I cared for in the past. Or at least, nothing that I actively sought. But now? I'm into it, I guess. And these two knuckleheads did not disappoint.

Nate is a warlock, or rather, would've been one had his jerk of a father allowed him to fully embrace his powers instead of siphoning them for himself. I'm not sure, but I think Nate is sexually assaulted at the beginning of the book. The author doesn't elaborate on the "failed bonding," but that's what it sounded like to me. So CW if that's something you need to know. He has a lot of self-esteem issues due to his past trauma, and watching him work through them is difficult at times.

Ian is an alpha werewolf. If you've ever read a book with an alpha werewolf you know what you're getting. But something happens at like the 80% mark of the book that changes everything, and Ian stops being such a huge prick to Nate. The misunderstanding I mentioned? Yeah, that gets brought up and both of these dudes are like WAIT YOU THOUGHT WHAT? THAT I WHAT?

This book deserves a listen and a re-listen because what comes off as Ian being a complete f-ing jerk will probably sting a little less now knowing why he does and says the things he does (and Nate really shouldn't have called Ian stupid all of those times or taunted him for being a big dumb werewolf, bc totes unfair).

Bah. I loved this book. It's short enough to read/listen to on the couch in a day, and it keeps you on your toes literally the whole time. I know because I was up until 3AM listening to the darn thing, then got up and finished the book after I made coffee.

I can't wait to listen to the next one. So many books, so little time!

Omg, I love it

The story is wonderful, the characters are wonderful, the emotion is wonderful, and the narrator is wonderful! I’ve been in such a book slump lately and nothing has been able to hold my attention until I started listening to this! It hooked my attention right away, and it didn’t let go.

fun & light

The cover had me thinking this might be a bit serious, but it's definitely not. This is a straightforward fun romance, no heaviness or angst. I usually prefer angsty slow burns, but I loved this anyway because it's well-written & pulls you along for a quick, light bit of fun. Great happy escapism! The playfulness suits the fast-paced, shorter format. Consistently funny, too. The romance develops a little too quickly for my usual tastes, but it suits the story's easygoing style.

I would have liked a couple more chapters at the start with more interactions between the leads before it jumped off into action so that their romantic declarations, new friendships, and internal thoughts felt a bit more established/earned, but it was easy to suspend my disbelief on that part and keep listening because of the playful style of the story.

Narrator is great! No complaints.

werewolf and Warlocks Oh,my!

Once again we have a story of fated mates coming together after much trial. and tribulation .
Although this is an oft repeated theme in The Alphas Warlock it works, I loved the main characters, the humor kept me laughing and Chambers narration is spot on.

Good story. Good narration.

Grayson did a good job of creating a werewolf story that doesn't rely on alpha tropes to build characters. I had fun listening to Nate and Ian try to navigate their way around a difficult situation. The narrator's character voices were a nice addition to the story too.

Very good book

I really liked this book overall. It was sexy, sad, then happy lol. The only con i can think of is more so that the main main character in my opinion was made out to be some weak pathetic guy even tho he was supposed to have so much power. I wish i could have seen more growth in that aspect as well as a bit more details on the actual relationship and their past, but for overall i was still very happy with the story line and the ending.

Amazing

I really loved this book. I loved the action sequence, the suspense in between the action in the beginning of the book, and then just the moments with Ian and Nate together. It was so romantic and sensual and it kind of drove me crazy. And and Chris Chambers is an amazing narrator. he has great range when he changes his voices for characters and he knows just when and how to make you feel suspense, excited, aroused, and just hooked on this book.

Pleasantly Surprised! QUITE a Great Little Diamond in the Rough!

I was in the mood for paranormal m/m romance (ok, if I’m honest, I’m ALWAYS in the mood for this genre!) and I came across this little book, which seemed too good to be true! It sat in my wishlist for awhile, and I decided to roll the dice and give it a credit! I’m glad I did, because once I started listening, it turned out to check almost all of my boxes: no insta-love, no horrendous narration, no crappy writing, and no avoidance of hot gay sex scenes! (Well, the sex scenes could have been more detailed and more plentiful, but they were firmly in the “ok, im feeling this; lady bits are standing by at attention” category). It was slightly annoying that the (low-level) angst/conflict between the two MC’s seemed a bit forced, at times, but that was not a significant problem, for me, anyway. Overall, a great read if you like, hot smexy times, werewolves, vampires, magic, VERY DECENT WRITING, good plot-building and you aren’t insistent on having TONS of world-building (it was enough for this story, imho.I would give this one 4.5 snarky-meets-studly stars! Just goes to show that if you scour Goodreads and Audible, there are still some hidden gems out there! Now, I’m off to go spend another credit on the second installment! Hope you enjoy!!
