Wolf's Fall (Alpha Pack, #6) by J. D. Tyler ~ Audio Book Review

Wolf's Fall (Alpha Pack, #6) by J.D. Tyler

A top secret team of wolf shifters, the Alpha Pack are former Navy SEALS that use their Psy powers to take on the world’s greatest predators. But while each member is loyal to the pack, it can be hard to deny the call of desire…

Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn’t sure he’s fit to lead—especially when he meets the one woman he can’t claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire.

Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant—if only he’d let it. But Calla isn’t about to give up on her mate without a fight.

Time is running out, not only for Nick to claim his mate, but for Calla and her coven. A vampire war is on the horizon, one the Alpha Pack can’t hope to win if their leader can’t pull himself back from the abyss…

Since this is an audio review, let me start there.  Marguerite Gavin narrates this book.  Looking at the previous books, she is new to this series.  I haven't heard the rest of the books so I can only talk about my experience with this book but I don't think it was a great change.  I didn't enjoy her voices.  Particularly, Nicks voice.  She made him sound like a grouchy old man.  I guess as a 200 year old natural born shifter, he is old but it doesn't show at all, otherwise.  Anyway, I don't think I would listen to another book by this narrator.

I started this series in book 5, Cole's Redemption.  Check MY REVIEW here.  The ending of that one set-up this one and I was interested in how a wolf that had been tortured by a vamp would ever be okay with a vamp as his mate.  So I picked this one to find out.

I enjoyed this world where a top secret pack of shifters protects the world from paranormal problems.  Nick is a great leader who has faced more than a few struggles in his over 200 years.  That makes the story serious and full of battle.  It's also full of sexy times every time Nick and his new mate Calla find themselves alone.  Didn't matter if that was under a waterfall or in a cabin alone.  These two are hot together.

The larger story of the group in the series moves forward as well.  I am missing pieces as I didn't read the first 4 books but it makes sense anyway.  I enjoy the other characters even if I don't know all their back history.  It was nice to see Zan again.  I'm glad he's doing better.

If you love the paranormal romance with a side of extra hot and sexy, then this book will appeal to you.
