Summary

As the landlord of The Dragon's Lair and leader of The Black Dragons Motorcycle Club, Axel Carmichael has seen it all and done it all. He's a respected and experienced dom. Nothing shocks him anymore, and nobody catches him off guard.
When Bayden rides up to The Dragon's Lair on a bike worth more than most men earn in a year, and immediately demonstrates that he has far more attitude than sense, it's easy for Axel to write him off as a silly little rich boy who's about to get himself killed.
But, there's more to Bayden than meets the eye. He's no silly little boy, rich or otherwise, and werewolves aren't easy to kill.

Not the usual cliched book. Really liked it.

Where does Axel's Pup rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top half

What did you like best about this story?

It's not the usual fare, Baydon is tough, prickly and not very sub like. Axel is having to work hard to find his way through to becoming Baydon's Dom.

Any additional comments?

Just really an excellent read.

Oh. my. Oh. my!

This is one of the most epic tales I've read/listened to in a very very long time. The start is slow and the pace takes minute details into consideration because it absolutely has to.

As the story progresses, the author makes you sink slowly into the minds of the leading men and sweet Lord, she is good at it. I flinch when Baden takes a hit. My heart rate sky rockets when Axel panics. I am enraged when narrow minded cowards take pot shots. She writes this so well that I'm there. Maybe being part of a minority group helps me to empathise with Baden more but the story is written so well, I can understand Axel's confusion as he comes from the opposite side of the divide too.

And then there's the sex... get yourself some ice cubes, a good AC, and warn your partner that you may require some 'assistance' later. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Lastly, the narrator is likely one of the best narrator's I've come across on Audible. His ability to stay in character, make it clear which character is speaking, create the right mood for a scene with just his voice. So talented!

This book ended and I literally sighed. I sighed because it was a long ride and finally it was over. I sighed because I will miss these characters I've come to love. And I sighed because I don't know when next I'll find a book as dedicated to drawing you in deep as this one did.

I wonder if we'll ever see this world evolve, especially if we'll see more of the changing of the pack laws. Absolutely beautifully written Ms Dare.

A rare 5 star review

Where does Axel's Pup rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I don't give many 5 star reviews for audiobooks. It seems like it the story is great then the narrator won't be. If we have an awesome narrator the story won't be a 5 star effort. For once everything came together. And let me tell you, with Axel's Pup already being one of my favorite books I was really worried about this. Happily though I get to give both the narrator (who is new to me) and the book 5 stars!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Axel's Pup?

I've re-read this book so many times that when I found out it was available for audio I purchased it right away without even having a credit left. Yes, I don't mind spending my hard earned money for this!
My favorite moments in the book are when Bayden does penance and his big punishment after the second fight with Ford. These are what sealed the deal with me to how much Axel and Bayden belonged together.
The hottest moment is when Axel and Bayden pretend Axel is a wolf as well and Axel actually cuts his pants off. Woo! Hot! Fanning myself!

What about Chris Clog’s performance did you like?

He got the voices right and the feel of the characters. Bayden is not weak. He might be a sub but he is also a strong character. I loved how the narrator did not make him sound weak or give him a lisp or something like that. Axel's voice was perfect.

There were very small issues. I few times in the beginning he said Alex instead of Axel. I caught that probably because I love Axel so much. When Axel and Bayden's mom speak there is two lines delivered in her voice when it's actually Axel speaking. Easy to miss and did not distrupt the story at all.

I will admit at the very first I was thrown off. I knew the author was from the UK. I knew the book is set over there. Duh, so when I heard the accent it threw me. I actually paused the book to brace myself. I've never owned an audio book not being US accent. I am so glad I went on. It wouldn't have been right to have an US accent with the UK words. I just had to adjust.

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

I always have a strong reaction to good books. During this listen I even tapped back to listen to some parts a second time because they were so wonderful. This is the kind of book that allows you to really feel what the characters are going through.

Any additional comments?

I know the author said she is planning a second book. That made my month. While this book is great having more of Bayden and Axel, even the secondary characters is what's needed right now. I would love to see Hale with a wolf! Could you imagine that? OMG!
The world might not be perfect, but being able to escape into a book like this makes it tolerable.

My favorite book

I bought this e-book when it was first published and have read it so many times I have actually lost count. When I heard it was going to be produced by Audible I was so excited that I checked the site everyday to see if it was out yet. I was not disappointed in Audible's finished product. I thought the narrator did a fine job with a wonderful story. I have finished listening to it and am trying to stop myself from just starting over and listening to it again (I have a lot of books I haven't listened to yet).
