It wasn't until this year that I learned of my love for Shifters and Lia Davis' Ashwood Fall's series is a large part of the reason. Each time she releases a new book, I get so excited and cannot wait to read it. Actually, I think I get more excited with each one that comes out!

Surrendering to the Alpha is basically Keegan and Addyson's story. Having met Keegan and Addy in the previous book, A Mating Dance, I was very curious to see how everything worked out between them. After all, we had to ha

Can I first say that Lia Davis is a fantastic author that takes you on a paranormal ride of a life time. With each new story we get pieces of each character that we are longing for. With every read I get so excited because I know I am going to get questions answered that I long for and Lia does not disappoint. In Surrendering to the Alpha we get Addyson and Keegan's story and oh what a stroy it is. I loved loved every minute of it. Her other stories were super steamy and had off the chart sex sc ...more

Another great Ashwood falls novel. I loved this story! Addyson was such a great character and I enjoyed watching her find her strength after years of oppression and torture that had left her scared and insecure.
Lots of action and suspense, laughter and tears, and smoldering hot love scenes. Can't wait for the net one.

Keegan the alpha of Ashwood Falls is given a second chance at happiness with Addyson. She is a reader, all she has to do is touch an object to know what happened to the owner. she was abused by the rogues and came to Ashwood falls pretty broken up and fearful of those around her she wears gloves because she cannot shut her gift off.

For Addyson Keegan hands the reigns of alpha to his oldest son, to take her and the young David who also has the same gift as Addyson to a safe house.

Once again, Lia Davis has given the readers a wonderful reading experience with Surrendering to the Alpha. This is the third book in her Ashwood Falls series. It has been long awaited and much anticipated by this devoted reader. Davis did an fantastic job with this book. It was great read, very intense, emotional and suspenseful. I definitely enjoyed the ride.

In the previous book, A Tiger's Claim, we learned that fate was smiling on Keegan. He was given another mate after the tragic loss of his

GENRE: Paranormal Romance
THEME: Mature, Magical, Shifters

Lia Davis brought back my love for shifter romance novels, I’ve been at a slight hiatus and this book got me out of my slump. Surrendering to the Alpha is the third book in the Ashwood Falls series, but can be read as a stand-alone. I have just finished the first after reading this one. Even though the first introduces you to this magical world of shifters I felt I was able to c

I haven't read the other books in the series before I read this one and I might have been a little lost but it didn't take long for me to catch up and if a book can do that it's automatically a five star. I love shifter books it's just sometimes hard for me to find one that keeps my focus but this one had no problem keeping my focus I finished reading this in 45 minutes that's how much it had my focus.

Where to begin in my lovefest of this newest book in the Ashwood Falls series? So much story this time!!! Loads of twists and turns! The plot thickens and a great deal more about the Onyx pack rogues is revealed. Lots of info to process but definitely not overwhelming.

Keegan has always been an awesome character and only gets better in this book. You get more of his backstory and he becomes more fleshed out. He has always been an intriguing mystery and it was exciting to peal back those layers.

I received an audio copy of this book from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

I have to admit that while I enjoyed Ashwood Falls series, I often felt like their alpha, Keegan was stiff and flat. I feel sorry that he lost his mate, but I felt like there wasn't much to his story other than that. That is, until I read this book.

I enjoyed this book because it showed Keegan as more than just an alpha. This book shows him as a man who also needs someone to spend his life with after los

Addyson has been slowly bringing her broken mind some healing after her captivity with the Onyx pack.
While Keegan has lived with his own personal hell after what happened to his mate.
We have meet these characters in other books but we now see more insight into there thoughts and feelings.
Keegan is able to touch Addyson without causing her pain while Addyson quiets his mind.
As much as Addyson is touch straved she is unsure how to handle Keegan even when he is near or touching her as he stirs her
My Review:
Thirty seven years has passed since, Keegan mate Cate has past. Cate used Keegan’s gun to kill herself in front of him after she revealed that she betrayed the pack. But what has she really done?
Recently, Keegan discovered that the baby that was thought to have been passed away thirty seven years ago may be still alive in enemy territory…
The pack is still on high alert and Keegan is ready hand over the pack to his son, Blaine to become Alpha after he has been Alpha for MANY decades..

The fourth book in the Ashwood falls series is a great addition to the series, which continues to be intriguing and entertaining.

The romance between Keegan and Addy is a sweet love that brings some happiness in to both of their lives. The emotions involved in the discovery of that happiness and other secrets brought to light are clearly defined by the author leaving the reader completely absorbed with these characters. All the characters in this series are captivating and draw the reader deeper

Lia Davis draws the readers in with the Ashwood Falls series and does not want to let them go. I was so excited when this book released a few days early. I grabbed it and started reading it as soon as I found out. I had just finished book 1 and 2 so I couldn’t wait to hear the story of Keegan and how he lost his first mate and also how his new mate heals his heart.

I feel as though some questions weren’t answered, like was Cate really being controlled? I know it’s hinted, but I really wish it wo

Love some more Keegan that's for sure...Keegan and Addyson's characters reached for each other knowing they were mates but also to help each other heal. I loved the instant awareness between these two characters, I love how they both feel better when they are around each other, they both have troubled pasts but they help each other move past their pasts to a future together (hopefully) love their leopards too.

Love the Ashwood Falls series! Surrendering to the Alpha was excellent! I loved how Keegan, pack Alpha, steps down to protect his pack, family and his future mate! Addyson is sweet but has suffered greatly in the hands of the enemy. The onyx pack was also responsible for pain in Keegan's past. You must read to find out what secrets are revealed and how Keegan and Addyson help each other heal and discover the love they have for one another. Don't miss out, read the Ashwood Falls series now!
