Audio book review: New Beginnings by Brandy L Rivers

Length: 5 hrs and 47 mins 
Series: Others of Edenton, Book 0.5
Jess knew her life would never move forward if she remained a part of Gregory's pack. Some alphas don't know how to take care of their wolves. She had managed Gregory's bar for years, but she knew he would never sell it to her. After one giant mistake, he went from bad to worse. As a psychic she knew it was a downward spiral.

Taking her future in her own hands, she contacted the alpha in Edenton. He was happy to sell the empty bar that no one had the time or desire to renovate, much less run. Their attraction was unexpected and the last thing either wanted, but they found the only thing they needed in each other. There was just one problem: Slater's second-in-command was plotting against him. Liam would use anything to take over as alpha.

Plenty of werewolves, an old vampire flame, plus a paranoid second, and don't forget the psychic with a whole lot of attitude.

I am addicted to this series! Totally, completely and irrevocably HOOKED. I’m also in love with the characters and the general story they all create. Brandy L Rivers is an author you simply cannot miss!

While this is book #.5 in the series, I started with In Too Deep which is book #1 and then jumped to book #5, Mending Scars. This back-and-forth thing did NOT affect my connection to the books….at all. However, I’ve now gone back to the beginning and am now reading/listening to them in order, and I must say, my connection is even stronger.

I had the honor of listening to the Audible version of New Beginnings and let me just say – WOW! The narrator did a superb job with all the voices and emotions! The story was literally brought to life and I loved every minute of it. I did not want to stop listening to it! I took my iPad and headphones everywhere and listened to the book every chance I got! AMAZING. Unputdownable!

Now, about this amazing story…

The best thing Jess ever did was moving to Edenton and getting a fresh, new start away from her alpha. She had made the drunken mistake of sleeping with him and his cockiness only got worse. He never really valued her to begin with, he only wanted to own her. Edenton’s alpha, Slater, was a whole different story. While he wasn’t looking to start anything with any of the wolves in his pack, he couldn’t help but feel a very strong connection to Jess from the very beginning.

Despite them both fighting their very strong urges, they were meant to be together…one way or another. Now, you must understand, Jess was also a physic, so while she ‘saw’ Slater in her future, she wasn’t entirely aware of everything that was about to happen. And let me tell you – New Beginnings was action-packed with a perfect balance of drama and hotness! Every scene kept me fully invested, wanting more! And being able to hear the story, made it even more real.

This book, this entire series, is a MUST READ. Top recommendation to any romance reader – whether or not you read Paranormal, you need to check these gems out! FIVE STARS!

I've always loved books, especially about monsters and magic, so I started writing. I'm working on a prequel and the next few books in the Others of Edenton series, and I have a head full of stories to share.

I'm a stay at home mother with a wonderful husband who lets me write and write to my hearts content.
