Publisher's Summary

First comes love....
Then comes marriage....
....and then comes my con-artist husband selling me to werewolves on our honeymoon.

On the run from my cruel captors, I stumble into Grayhaven. This secret supernatural settlement is packed with biker demons, fae royals, and witches dealing in death-magic. Their small town could be my salvation...or doom.

But when the Grayhaven werewolf pack tracks me down, I feel the noose of impending capture tightening around my throat. I’m an omega, the least dominant werewolf in the supernatural world. If I’m given an order - any order - I’m powerless to refuse.

The five dominant werewolves could enslave me with a word. Instead, they take me in, protect me, and call me their mate. I want to believe that they are mine...that I’m safe.

Yet, there is a malevolent darkness hunting me and it won’t stop until it’s claimed me once more, body and soul.

If you love sexy-as-hell alpha werewolves, feisty heroines, fated mates, and dominant shifters who would do anything to protect their mate, get ready to devour this medium/fast burn reverse harem romance!

Escaping Monsters is the first book in this steamy new Why Choose werewolf series by Alexa B James and Rita Stradling. This book is for 18 and over only please.

AMAZING

This was a great audiobook. I was worried that I might not like the one narrator because of usually listening to multiple narrators but this book ended up having pleasantly pleasing audio. The story was great, with equally as amazing narration by Savannah Rivers who definitely helped give more personality to the characters through her voice. The storyline as a whole was great. The female protagonist - Teagan - was easy to stand behind and there was definitely an instant connection with her as a character. All four men in the romance were equally as loveable, whether it be through their overprotectiveness, brains, or their respect for everything Teagan does. This is definitely a book I would recommend if you have read the blurb and think you might like it. Teagan is an omega, however, that doesn't mean that she is weak in any way and is definitely a character I think you will love as well. Hopefully, you decide to give the book a try. Enjoy!

Great start to the series

This first book in the Greyhaven series soon captures your attention, from the violent, heart wrenching beginning, to the jump to her escape from Kane and the thrilling discoveries she makes in Greyhaven. I loved Teagan’s story, the unusual town and it’s variety of inhabitants. The authors take on omega’s is unusual and fascinating, and I loved the relationships that Teagan is forming. The characters definitely grab your attention and the narrators sensual voice suits the story well. She does a great job of making you feel the tension and emotions in the story. I will look forward to seeing where this series will lead.

Escaping Monsters

This book is great! I love the storyline. If you enjoy werewolves and RH this is the book. Savannah did an absolutely amazing job narrating! For a female to narrate a book with more than 5 males and make them all sound different, fantastic.

Fantastic!!!

OMG!! I literally woke up my hubby laughing at some of the conversations in this book. It’s a great start to a series and I can’t wait to read the next book. Savannah is also a great narrator. I highly recommend this book.

Really good story line

I thought this book wasn't going to be good, but it proved me wrong. It was a very good book and can't wait to find out what happened with the Pack and Kane.

It was ok

It is ok. Imaginitive and has some interesting parts. But some descriptions of what she was going through were hard for me to listen to. Torture and the likes made me quite uncomfortable so I wanted the story to end already. I won't be listening to the next one.

Enjoyed bk 1 of this new to me wolf shifter series

I wasn't sure what to expect going in, since I usually read omega verse stories that are M/M and have a very different trope/subplot than Escaping Monsters. I did enjoy the set-up in this story. I thought the guys in the pack are great, each having their own personality. I loved Lucas from the very beginning and want one of my own! I am a sucker for nerdy guys so I can't wait to learn more about Ace in book 2. Declan was so charming, I loved all his scenes. Jasper was a wild card for me and I definitely love him as alpha as this pack. I hope to see more growth from him in book 2. Vote is still out on Chad haha but based on his behavior at the end of book 1 I think he will weasel his way into everyone's heart. I enjoyed their awkwardness with privacy, definitely made my walks/drives more enjoyable and got some giggles out from me haha.

Now I will say some things were a little odd/off, which is why I think I couldn't give it 5 stars. I think it has a lot of things mashed into one story. I am still trying to wrap my head around Grayhaven and all the nuances with the fae, demons, etc. I think there might be too much going on, but I am gonna wait to see how book 2 goes on that front. I think the other thing that is going to pose a problem is the omega requirement to obey the commands. Does this go away when they become mated (except with her mates) or will she forever have to listen to someone else, even if they are outside her pack. I feel like they will need to break this almost "curse" to make this story to work. But again, gonna let this play out in book 2 (come on 2021!!)

I thought the narration was done well, no big complaints from me. I don't think I have listened to Savannah before so I wasn't sure what to expect from her. I thought she did the male voices really well (even Declan) and I could tell who they were easily. I thought her inflections were how I imagined they would be. She did a fantastic job when the dominant orders were given. I could feel the angst, tension, inner strength. I could feel the frustration when she had to obey. Great job, looking forward to book 2 next year 😊

just didn't do it for me

Not sure why, but I just didn't enjoy this book. I tried and listened to the whole thing, but barely did that. I liked the plot to a certain extent but something was missing. Good narration though and that's probably what kept me going.

Bring on book 2

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review.

This was quite an interesting concept for a shifter series and I really enjoyed this world. It wasn’t at all what I was expecting I actually expected it to almost be no plot and all sex but pleased to find a whole heap of plot and that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I think what made it really interesting was the female lead wants to be strong but as an omega wolf is physically unable to do so just makes this book so very different from anything I’ve heard/read before. I loved that each male character had their own characteristics that you could identify them with probably even if they weren’t named. Declan’s humour really did make me chuckle! I’ve already asked when book 2 will be available on audible as I’m really looking forward to it!

Should come with an adult content warning...

I thought this book would be about a lost werewolf trying to find herself. Instead, it's about a werewolf who ends up having (graphic) sex with virtually everyone she meets. I did like the idea behind the actual story line - but ended up fast-forwarding whole chapters when she was bumping uglies with various blokes. Yawn

good book

I would say the story line of this book is different to a lot of other books about werewolf/wolf shifters. Actually it's the first book I have read with this idea. I personally enjoyed this book and the narrator but it did feel like something was missing, I'm also not sure what that would be, so it's not a 5 star for me. Maybe I just need to keep reading. Give it a go! See if you think the same.

Wonderful

This book is brilliantly written, with an amazing twist right at the beginning. It reminded me of the fabulous TV series Midnight Texas with a small town full of supernatural beings. The wonderful narration really suits this book and drew me in from the very start.

I really enjoyed the story and I cannot wait for the next instalment.

Loved it!

These were new authors and a new narrator for me. First of all I loved the narrator, she was really good and also I found her voice really soothing.
I absolutely adored the story and will definitely be looking into others by these authors. This story focused on an omega fleeing her evil husband. She's scared of other wearwolves but things start to change as she meets a different pack and relationships blossom. I can't wait for the next one! This didn't end on a cliffhanger so it's definitely safe to start now and I would definitely recommend!

Different but traps you in

This story was a bit different from most shifter stories I have read, different rules and such but once you learn the universe you can’t wait to see what happens next! The narrator also did a great job on the audio copy!
