Publisher's Summary

This audiobook depicts graphic sexual situations and language.
The chances of Jacob and Allison ever meeting are against all odds. Jacob is a billionaire philanthropist from Scotland and Allison is a horse trainer from northern California. One transatlantic flight later and their shared destinies are now entangled in unimaginable ways. A new ferocious passion has been ignited in both and denied through time and distance. Transformations dim the fires of desire in one and ignite a conflagration in the other. One can heal the damaged soul and one can awaken the other. Will they decipher the riddle of their united genetics before it is too late for either of them? She licked her lips. Why didn't he kiss her? Why didn't he touch her? He just kept staring at her, breathing through his nose and pulsing his jaw as if he were trying to make a choice. Was touching her a choice? To her, it felt more like a biting need, something mandatory and so acute it was killing her...
Please look for Omega Rising and Lumen in the Dormant Desires Series as the second and third installments in this story....

HOT!

If you could sum up Alpha Awakened in three words, what would they be?

Amazing, hot, and awesome!

Have you listened to any of Joshua Story’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to this narrator before but I loved his accent!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had already read the book but the audiobook was better with the narrator's accent!

Any additional comments?

Take a chance on this one! HOT and sexy!

A authentic, tantalizingly sexy story.

If you could sum up Alpha Awakened in three words, what would they be?

Tantalizing, Lascivious, Authentic.

What other book might you compare Alpha Awakened to and why?

Alpha Awakened by Payne Hawthorne, is not like any other book I've read. It's an original story with strong, independent characters.

Have you listened to any of Joshua Story’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first time listening to Joshua Story. I enjoyed his voice/s, which surprised me, because I usually steer clear of audio books, as the one's I've previously heard were less than impressive. This one was fantastic, and I guess that has a lot to do with the fact that I loved this story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I enjoyed the story immensely, it's paranormal/shifter/werewolf genre. <br/>I loved the scenes between Jacob and Allison and especially their first meeting and conversation on the plane, it was funny, interesting and there was a lot of sexual tension. <br/>I couldn't wait for them to finally 'do it'. I absolutely loved the super HOT sex (and Jacob's self-pleasure scenes, hot, hot, hot.) The sex scenes are so well written it's hard not to feel something while you're reading them! There was a fair bit of sexual tension throughout the story too. <br/>I really love Jacob, he's strong, sexy and oozes charm and raw sexuality. <br/>The scenes where they're between human/werewolf form are perfectly written and I enjoyed hearing about Jacob's struggles to understand what was happening to him, and how he dealt with it. <br/>Allison was strong, independent, sexy and not all whiny or needy like some female characters I've read about in other books (by other authors.) I really wished Allison was 'awake' more during the story, as I wanted to know more about her, although there were some clues/bits about her past, I liked hearing her 'speak' and I found even though the story was short, I missed her 'voice'. <br/>I've never read a werewolf based story like this one before, and I found myself more and more interested in not only Jacob and Allison's story but the history of the werewolves too.<br/><br/>I loved the way the author went back and forth between the characters, rather than focusing on one character the whole way through. This is something I LOVE in a story. It gave a great insight into them and made me feel more connected.

Any additional comments?

I was disappointed the story ended, (not how it did, just the fact that it did end!) and I can't wait to read/hear the next book in the series. Amazing work Payne Hawthorne!

4.5 stars

Any additional comments?

When I orginally READ this book,Aug 2013, I wasn't much into writing reviews, and didn't write one for this book. I rated it 3 stars.NOW, since reviewing this book in AUDIO, I'm upgrading my rating to 4.5 and writing a full review.Allison meets Jacob on a plane trip to Scotland. the chances of them ever meeting were astronomical. But meet they did, and they were both thrown into a world that neither of them knew about.Such a different take on the werewolf theme, and I loved this! Allison and Jacob's meeting triggers something in them both, and they know nothing about it. Its all very scary, Allison slips into some sort of coma, and stays that way for much of the book. Jacob, however, changes, SHIFTS into something that legends are made of. The legends here, though, are true and Jacob discovers he is descended from a line of werewolves going back centuries. There is a prophecy, long ago forgotten. Said prophecy comes into play now, and its all change for those descendents.The single scene between Jacob and Allison is the plane ride, the rest of the book they are apart, and while it seemed odd while reading, its perfect for this book. What there is between the two of them, is hot off the charts, and very well written. Joshua Story narrates. His accent drove me nuts trying to place! Its very proper English, with no hint of a regional accent, and it made for delicious listening. He speaks clearly, with well defined character voices. His ability to convey the right amount of feeling, and emotion in his voice is a beautiful thing. I will certainly listen to more of his work.4.5 stars for the book, 5 for the narration.
