This was a very intricate story, lots of great characters, I would love to visit this world again....BUT....it is far from what I expected.
It seems to me that in a lot of shifter books you hear about pack unity, respect for the alpha, a real sense of pride in belonging to the pack, and total deference to the Alpha. This book shows a FAR different take on alpha life. There are several people in this pack that the Alpha can't stand, and they don't care too much for him either. One guy just flat out thinks he should be alpha and is constantly making the Alpha's life difficult...and yet he's still there. The Alpha works a normal job on pack land, and he doesn't live in a great house. Really it was a very weird alpha pack type book because it doesn't follow any of the normal conventions on what a pack is and there is almost no shifting...but it was a really nice story so I got over it.
Three months ago the Alpha of the pack died, a new leader was chosen called Gavin. Gavin put out an alert that said he was looking for a mate and packs far and wide sent their best choice for him to look at.
Alicia Clarkson sees a pack-mate being manhandled in the street and speaks out that the guards should release her, she doesn't want to go wherever they want to send her. The Alpha of her pack explains the girl is being sent off to be considered for an alphas mate and she should shut the heck up, she doesn't, he gets ticked and decides to send her too just to get her out of the pack.
When Gavin first sees Alicia he is struck dumb, she's fiery, fierce, determined, and quick to think on her feet...all the things he was looking for in a mate. It also didn't hurt that she was beautiful. He decides he wants her, but wants her to choose to be with him. The women in his pack can't stand to look at him, after the Alpha challenge, which he won, his face was horribly scared, most women look at him and run. He needs an outsider, and he needs to seduce her before she can see his face.
Thus, the fun begins! She wants to see his face, he won't let her. She want's to leave, he won't let her. He wants to seduce her, she won't let him. It's very much a modern day beauty and the beast, and fun to listen to.
Great for credit/buy, maybe not a purchase, but I did enjoy it a lot.

Where does The Loneliest Alpha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book ranked a lot higher than I initially thought it would and by the end I was totally hooked. There's lots of passion, twists and turns, action and people with believable flaws and faults.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Loneliest Alpha?
When the lead female Alicia puts the drop on the Alpha male Gavin MacKellen. When female lead role Alicia dances and sings to music with her earphones on oblivious to the sound or its affect on others(Good Girl).How jaded and damaged the male lead Gavin MacKellen is about his appearence.
Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favourite?
I hadn't had the pleasure of hearing Jeffrey Kafer's narration work before listening to this book. I was astounded by the many different male characters he portrayed, however, I would have preferred a female narrator to be the voice of the female roles.That said I did enjoy the book and eventually got used to Jeffrey Kafer in all of the roles, my favourite was Gavin MacKellen I dont know how Jeffrey Kafer managed not to damage his vocal cords permanently, it was a great performance.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Oh yes although as a rule I dont usually burst into tears at the drop of a hat, my lovely Hubby was very concerned when I sat with tears rolling down my cheeks as I continued to listen to this book.
Any additional comments?
I must say this book has a great plot, even better twists and turns in the story and lots of passion. I'm truly looking forward to the next book in this series from this author ...Please Audible Hint Hint Hint

This was a simple story with some twists and turns
The characters dynamics were easy to understand although there were characters that I didn't understand weren't dealt with earlier
But it is a great read
