Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I'm not sure it was time well spent. If I'd been reading the book I would have skipped or speed read to get to the end, but you can't do that with an audio book.
If you’ve listened to books by Eva Gordon before, how does this one compare?
This is the second of Eva's books I have listened to. I wasn't entirely convinced by the first one, and unfortunately this one was less convincing. The whole shifter culture revolves around humans as a lesser species with almost no rights; it is brutal and far too formal for me, and I'm not into BDSM either. The heroine, Mia, is a mix of petulant child and reasonable adult, so I kept liking then disliking her through the book. The hero (Dominic, the alpha wolf) seems inconsistent and unreliable to me. At one point he forced Mia to get naked in front of the pack (a big no no for starters). He told her he wouldn't let anyone else touch her, but she is groped by Oak, another wolf - it just annoyed the heck out of me.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Augusta Rivers?
No, I don't think so. Her accent is grating. She pronounces wolf as "woof" and wolves as "woofs" - no small issue in a book about wolf shifters! She s unable to pronounce foliage at all - she says "foilage" - they spend a lot of tie in the woods, so again, this was irritating.
Was Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept worth the listening time?
No, I don't think so. Just not really my thing.
After listening to the first part of this series I could hardly wait to start this second one. I am enjoying it so much it is a brilliant story. Mia and Dominic are very much in love but it seems doomed to me. The authors way with words and the narrator's skills do a masterly job at pulling at my heartstrings. I feel so sad that pack law will probably end up breaking their hearts if a miracle does not happen. As in the first part, the underlying story of Mia being in hiding from the mob continues to be very exciting. There is everything to love about this series I would rate it a must read if you follow this genre.
What did you love best about Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept?
The interactions Mia had with each of the pack members was interesting. Each one was unique and well defined. I like that the origins of the werewolf world is so different from other stories. Mia's struggle with pack society is a curious dynamic. Almost like going back to high school as an adult in my nightmares!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept?

Which scene was your favorite?

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Augusta Rivers did an ok job of narrating, but Megan Kelly from book 1 is my preference.
I received this in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Hard to stay invested in the narration, as the narrator changed between volumes. Will have to listen to again.
