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.

Sarah Pucket Is Amazing

Sarah is a fantastic narrator!! She was the best part of this story!
This story was extremely difficult for me to get into and stay, and I LOVE PNR! There was some witty banter and a fun relationship between Alexa and her BFF. The love Triangle aspect was ok. I'll just say I wasn't in the mood for this one at this time! I might try again later! Thank you so much to Audiobook Obsession for providing this audible!

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!

Awesome beginning to the Series

I received this audiobook free for an honest review as a member of the Pink Flamingo Production review team. This paranormal story is well written and exciting. Alexa is a powerful werewolf with unexplained powers. The relationship between Alexa and her two men is undefined. It is hard to pick between Arys and Shaz. Each of them fill a different part of her life. Maybe you don't have to choose between the two. The future of Alexa O'Brien Huntress is going to be exciting. The narrator did a great job with the personalities of the characters and the overall story.

Great!

I really liked this story. There’s a lot going on, but it’s spaced out so it’s easy to follow.
Sarah Puckett did an amazing job with the narration, as always, and brought life into the book.
Currently listening to book two.

Brilliant

Paranormal romances are one of my fav genres, and just by reading the blurb I knew I would like this. I was proved right, Alexa the main character, was turned into a werewolf when she was a girl, she was a strong woman. I liked her. The storyline was fantastic and kept me gripped.
The love triangle between Alexa, Shaz a wolf and Arys a vampire, was okay although I kind of guessed where it would go early on.
Sarah Puckett is one of my favourite narrators and she did a fantastic job drawing me into the story.
I am looking forward to book 2.

Once Bitten

I really enjoyed reading about Alexa in this book. Watching her grow more powerful and yet be so lost was captivating. Now off to read more about Alexa in the next of the series.

I love Sarah Puckett

interesting book. the writing was done well. The characters were well written, and a writer has to be great to invoke emotions of hatred or antipathy towards a character in a book. lol. The story is a little hard to follow at times, but all in all, it was a good experience. I am glad I listened until the end. The narration was done really well. I love Sarah Puckett.

A Book Worth Taking a Bite of!

I cannot say enough good things about this book! I thought that the story was actually well written, I liked the characters (even the ones I am not supposed to like), and I was drawn into the story! I wanted this world to be the one I live in! Trina M. Lee has created an amazing world full of amazing creatures, full of beauty, goodness, and evil - all mixed together in each character! If you are a fan of the Paranormal Romance Genre... this is the book for you! It has the bite that I often wished other books in this genre had!
Not to be forgotten... Sarah Puckett is an amazing Narrator! She also immerses you into the story with her enchanting voice. She makes the sexy scenes sexier, the fight scenes full of power, and everything in between just delicious!! She has a powerful voice and as I put it... it's dripping with sexuality!

I just can’t

I can’t do it! Sarah Puckett is a terrible narrator. Up their with Loren Schroeder. Eeewwwww. Not only was the narrator terrible, but the main character is a whiny little beeetch. I’m an so sick of these authors thinking that a 30-something year old women would act like a teenager who just got her first period. It makes me so mad. Is this really how you see women? Is this how you would act? Don’t write a summary tha the main character is a kick ass heroine.m when she’s nothing but. Its the biggest pet peeve I have with books these days. Between this and the stupid “reverse herem of teenagers” thing, I just can’t take it anymore.

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.

Can't wait to start #2!

This was such a great paranormal romance/fantasy audiobook!! I love finding a new series with new characters to fall in love with. And I totally love Alexa. And I was so excited to see that there are already a whole bunch of books written for this series. Not all of them are in audio yet but at least they are written so it shouldn't take long for them to be made into audio or at least that's what I'm hoping for! Also, the narration was excellent. I think that Sarah Puckett is one of my favorite narrators! I've listened to a few audiobooks that she has done and they are all amazing!
