Book #30: Curse of the Alpha Episodes 1 & 2 by Tasha Black

Step into a world of shifters, witches, ghosts and romance…

Ainsley Connor has turned her back on her past.

Her perfect life as a successful real estate agent in Manhattan makes her memories of growing up as the daughter of a werewolf seem like a dream. But when a tragic accident forces her back to her unusual hometown, she can’t repress her inner wolf any longer.

Worse, the pack needs her to settle down and pick a mate. But how can she choose when the tiny college town is full of sexy shifters, all vying for her attention?

And the shifters aren’t even the strangest thing about Tarker’s Hollow…

˃˃˃ In Episode 1…
Ainsley Connor is on a mission to get back to the penthouses of Manhattan before the full moon. Will the pack manage to stake their claim on her before it’s too late?

˃˃˃ In Episode 2…
Ainsley learns about the danger facing the pack, and discovers that someone she trusts is hiding a dark secret. Will she be able to restrain the beast inside as it struggles to break free?

˃˃˃ A Continuing Story…
Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 1 & 2 are the first novellas in the Curse of the Alpha serial. Think of them like episodes of a TV show. They tell their own story, but you will need to read more parts to get the full tale of Ainsley Connor, a female werewolf, and her struggle to come to terms with her past, and accept her true nature and her role in the future of the pack. It is romance with sex, and is NOT intended for readers under the age of 18.

If you don’t like serials and/or romance with sex, then this is probably not for you!

Let me start by saying that if you choose to do audio, which I did, be ready for steamy sex scenes. About one per episode too. It wouldn’t have been a big deal if I didn’t have my five year old in the car with me. Needless to say, I turned it down during those parts and made sure he was otherwise occupied. Thank you, Angry Birds.

That said, I love serials. They are quick no need to think reads. Can’t find a good show on tv? Listen to a serial audiobook. That’s my way of thinking.

Curse of the Alpha was bought a while back and upgraded to audio for me. I found myself enjoying this book. Aside from the possible awkward moment of the sex scenes (thank god for an oblivious kid), I was pulled into the story.

I love werewolves. I probably love them more than vampires today. What I love about werewolves is the different take you can do with pack dynamics or even shifting. One book will have the shifting be painful whereas the other has it a fluid action. One book has a solid pack heirarchy whereas the other will have a hiccup in who is Alpha.

Right off the bat, Ainsling tells us she is a wolf. This isn’t a person who turned into a werewolf and is going through that kind of trauma. This is a person who was born a wolf, but chooses to not change because of a different traumatic event. A traumatic event that is one of the central mysteries in the serial.

Each episode ends with a cliffhanger which only forced me to grab the second audio quickly. I’m not fanning where I want to shove it down my bestie’s throat, but I am fanning to the point that I bought the second and gobbled it up right after the first. This is an erotic paranormal serial that could hurt the pocket if not for the gracious act of it being bundled.
