Zeus and Lucy!

Taken by the Alpha by Laxmi Hariharan and Scarlett Brooke is a steamy listen with great imagery. The narration by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel captivated me. I love how plans change. Tor is the perfect alpha while Charley was all stubborn and sass. They are so delightful to listen to and bring the characters to life and add incredible chemistry. Warning this book ends in a cliffhanger.

Entertaining

Both Laxmi Hariharan and Scarlett Brooke are new authors to me. Dystopian paranormal romance is not a genre I typical read or listen to. This was a hot and steamy book that certainly had my imagine working overtime. Be prepared this book ends on a cliff hanger, so you have been warned. The narration from Tor Thom and Charley Ongel certainly brought the story to life for me. I was intrigued by the story that the authors wove and as mentioned I have not read or listened to this type of story before. It was fast paced and certainly drew me in and kept me engaged throughout.

A fast paced, steamy Omegaverse romance

Zeus plans to take over. Lucy plans to kill Zeus. But plans change and Zeus and Lucy fall for each other. I love the struggle between Zeus and Lucy. Zeus is a strong Dominant. Lucy is a stubborn submissive. The chemistry between these two make the relationship even more intense as they struggle to find the happy balance. Set in an Omegaverse, the paranormal aspect of the story adds to just a romance and gives it a different life. This was a fun and steamy listen. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are a perfect narrating team. Their natural chemistry brings out the chemistry in the characters. Thom is always the perfect alpha male with his deep voice. Ongel brought the sassiness of Lucy to life. Ongel has a way of narrating those sassy submissives and making the seem so real. Their narration brought this story to life and I felt as if I was a fly on the wall inside the story.

WOW!!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This is the first book in a trilogy so ends on a cliffhanger... This is a great beginning of Zeus and Lucy's story, I was captivated and intrigued by the characters and the story-line. I love the chemistry, lust, and interaction between Zeus and Lucy. Zeus is a true alpha male and Lucy his omega. Narrators Tor Thom and Charley Ongel did a fabulous job with the characters and story, Tor Thom does a perfect Alpha, Oh My! That voice!! Exactly what I picture in my head what an Alpha would and should sound like! Can't wait for the next one!

What an alpha!

If you are looking for a hot, fast paced listen you have found the book for you! This paranormal romance will have your head spinning and your heart soaring. We are taken into the Knotted Omegaverse and meet Zeus. He is the alpha in charge, and now he is looking to take over his half brother's kingdom. Lucy, the Omega comes in and plans on assassinating Zeus, but plans change! Zeus is taken with Lucy and with his power and charisma, dominates Lucy. After all, she is an Omega, and she is to be his submissive. But she has a will of her own and refuses to obey. They have a precarious dance, learning each other and finding that dominant/submissive balance. It's fun, steamy and the story behind them one of survival. Just know that this will end on a cliffhanger, so be prepared to grab book 2 to see what happens to this couple! Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate this gem. They are such a good team, and I love their voices. Thom fits that alpha role perfectly with his smooth baritone voice. But Ongel meets him line for line with her stubborn Omega! Lucy is a force and Ongel brings her to life with a voice that lets him know she means business. They really make it a movie in your mind.

Lucy and Zeus

This is a great start to the Knotted Omega series. The choice of narrators was excellent. Tor was an awesome and hot Zeus. Lucy comes to assassinate Zeus but other things get in the way. This was a really good book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Both Tor Thom and Charley Ongel did an excellent job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Knotted Omega

Taken by the Omega (Knotted Omega #1) is a Omegaverse romance novel & dystopian in nature. It is raw and naturally instinctive. Avalanche of action through out, mostly sensual at this time. A graphically detailed novel with well developed characters. Morsels of suspense seep through the pages of the narrative. This novel intensifies and leads into the next one. Looking forward to listening to the next novel in this series to see what happens with Lucy and Zeus. Narators Tor Thom, Charley Ongel are the perfect duet to narrate this audio. I absolutely loved their performance together. Their organic chemistry shines through bringing characters to reality. Tor Thom's deep gravelly voice is picture perfect of Zeus. I love how his inflection parade's his ability to change to reflect different emotions. Charley Ongel's performance of Lucy brought out Lucy's sassy characteristics. Her inflection is vibrant and playful. Put it in a nutshell, this audio is extremely hot and intoxicating.

HOT

The premise of the storyline is interesting, packed with scorching hot scenes. The main characters are fabulous. Zeus, an alpha, and Lucy, an omega, have an intense relationship, and their chemistry searing; they were literally on fire. Their connection was instant but far from being instalove. They both fought their innate and biological attraction to each other. Outstanding narration by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel, both portrayed the characters' personalities and emotions very well. I love Tor Thom's alpha voice, it's marvellously raspy and gratifying.

Bad Alpha

This is one seriously twisted dark romance with a hot Alpha determined to break the beautiful Omega Sent to kill him. But this Omega is tougher than most and has no intention of surrendering to a Monster. Pity her body might not give her a choice. I always enjoy listening to work by Tor and Charley and they do an amazing job narrating this Dark Omegaverse Captive Romance set in a different world with different rules of conduct. Fair warning this book ends on a cliffhanger but readers can continue listening to Zeus and Lucy's story for free with Kindle Unlimited and Text to Speech as I'm going to. I received this Audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

One of my favourites!

Another engrossing book from Laxmi! The chemistry is electrifying and I was gutted when I got to the end. I have read a lot of omegaverse books and this is one of my favourite series. As ever, the narration is excellent!

Let this Alpha grab your ear swooning

Book 1 in the series . Laxmi And Scarlette knows how to grab the readers/Listeners attention. Strong hero , smart characters , not easy to cross and Zeus trusts no one . He knows and trusts his instincts . There is a new universe that you want to get to know,,, you will discover Omegaverse once you go deep into this excellent story . Hero is Zeus an alpha . Heroine is Lucy . Little does Zeus and Lucy know they are mates . Little by little they try their attraction to each other , the $ex scenes are hot . The attraction is off the charts . But before they find their happy ending, Zeus will need to give a little and lean to trust again. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel performance was perfect. Tor Thom voice was take no hostage deep strong . You know he’s a perfect Zeus . Charley soft, smooth voice is perfect for Lucy. You really get into the story

Excellent balance

I love these Alpha Omega books. If they are written well the balance between dubious consent and non consent can be electrifying, which this book is. Charley and Tor are great together.
