Summary

Ainsley Connor is determined to turn her back on her shifter past.
But the wolves of Tarker's Hollow call on her to choose the next alpha, and Ainsley becomes the object of desire for every eligible wolf in the quiet college town.
Surrounded by seductive shifters, all desperate to claim her, Ainsley wants nothing more than to leave the pack behind forever. But her newfound passions will not be ignored.
Ainsley soon finds herself torn between the mysterious stranger with the dark secret, the gorgeous and loyal friend from her past, and the hunky sheriff that wants her all to himself.
And the shifters aren't even the strangest part of Tarker's Hollow.
As she struggles to come to terms with her true nature, Ainsley is thrust into the center of a steamy web of shifters, ghosts, witches and warlocks, caught up in a life-and-death struggle for control of the pack she tried to abandon.
But for Ainsley Connor, the toughest wolf she must face might just be the one inside herself.
Curse of the Alpha is told in six installments, or episodes, like a TV show. Each episode contains a cliffhanger to entice the listener to tune in for the next one. If you're not a fan of the serial format, all six episodes are also available in a complete bundle!
In Episode 1, Ainsley Connor is on a mission to get back to the penthouses of Manhattan before the full moon. Will the wolves manage to stake their claim on her before it's too late?
In Episode 2, Ainsley learns about the danger facing the pack, and discovers that someone she trusts is hiding a dark secret. Will she be able to restrain the beast inside as it struggles to break free?

Spicy paranormal

Where does Curse of the Alpha: Episodes One and Two rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audio book ranks highly for the quality of the narration and for the enjoyment of a well written, good, escapist read.
The narration was excellently executed and was an easy listen. The story had me so hooked I listened to it all in one session.

Which character – as performed by Addison Spear – was your favourite?

It's difficult to choose just one. I didn't have a favourite character. Thankfully, none of the characters were performed in an over the top way so I was able to concentrate on the story rather than be distracted by annoying accents. I enjoyed all the character performances but Ainsley stood out most for me, probably because she was the main character.

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

The heightened sexual awareness and tension rippling through the town was both humorous and sexy. It was well written and I quite liked how Ainsley took opportunities to tease and converse with innuendo when she had the chance.The suspense and cliffhangers have ensured that I will be downloading the rest of the series

Any additional comments?

GOOD START TO A NEW SERIES FOR ME!

If you could sum up Curse of the Alpha: Episodes One and Two in three words, what would they be?

Interesting Alpha Twist!

Who was your favorite character and why?

It has to be Ainsley...and even if I don't completely like her attitude...I think once she accepts who she really is..she is going to be awesome!

What does Addison Spear bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is ok...i would like to hear her work on her Male character voices more, but her female characters are very good...and she is pleasant to listen to!

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

I did find Ainsley to be a bit amusing...she is a tough cookie...

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I am always skeptical about books with Alpha in the title, because I like strong female characters...and usually with the word Alpha in the title we get weak women...Not this book...Ainsley is strong...even though she has bee through a lot..and has denied her wolf...and now has lost her parents..and is kind of being stalked..she holds it together...She has the unwanted task of choosing a mate and an Alpha for her pack/town and she really doesnt want to do it...But Ultimately I think she has been pushed into a corner now..and she is going to come out with her teeth and claws bared! Good story...will be listening to book 3/4 asap!

Thank You Tasha!!

A must read / listen for wolf fans

What made the experience of listening to Curse of the Alpha: Episodes One and Two the most enjoyable?

The story was unique and captured my attention right away.

What did you like best about this story?

How it kept me interested the entire time.

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

No I haven't.

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

I very much dislike Julian. Once you listen to it you will agree. Haha.

Any additional comments?

I received this story in exchange for an honest review. May contain mild spoilers.

Tasha Black does a wonderful job of creating a new and unique world in something that is continually visited. Ainsley is a beautiful and independent woman who is looking to pave her own way in life and choose her own destiny. When her parents are tragically killed in a car accident she returns to Tarker's Hollow and her childhood home. From there the story of her destiny begins to unfold.

Of course being the strong woman she is she refuses to fold to everyone's words of how she needs to return home.

While she's back in town she runs into a number of old acquaintances and friends including her childhood BFF turned hunky construction worker Erik. She learns from a friend of her father's that he wished her to mate with Erik.

She also comes across a new resident in Tarker's Hollow named Julian Magie. She's immediately drawn to him for his good looks and love of Russian literature. But all is not what it seems with the enigmatic Mr. Magie.

Ms. Black's world instantly draws you in. I loved how there wasn't a huge build up to the story and how she had to go back home. She was instantly there and the story begins with an action filled dream.
One of my favorite parts of the story is how Ainsley is constantly attracting good looking men. When her wolf mojo kicks in, no one stands a chance. She's quite the hot commodity.

I have decided that I'm Team Erik all the way. He seems so sweet and genuine. I think he would make a good balance for Ainsley.

I'm not sure why but I immediately didn't trust Julian. Something about him just didn't sit right with me. The end of Episode 2 leads me to believe that my judgement was correct. The only way I'll know for sure is to continue to Episode 3. I fully intend to do just that and believe you will too when you read the story.
