I’ve survived suicide missions in war zones. Shifter prison labs. The worst torture imaginable. Nothing knocked me off my feet... until the beautiful lioness they threw in my cage. We shared one night before our captors ripped us apart.

Now I’m free, and my lion is going insane. He’ll destroy me from the inside out if I don’t find my

So when I first started "Alpha's War" I must admit I wasn't quite convinced initially of the writing style.
But after I'd got used to the story flow used here; this actually grew on me and it wasn't long before I was emotionally connected and invested in this interesting story and also the overall character dynamic established between Nash and Denali.
So this is a kind of backwards love story; starting after Nash and Denali are thrust together at the data

Finally, we get Nash's story! This book is part of an ongoing series by authors Renee Rose and Lee Savino. It can be read as a stand-alone story, however I recommend that you read the stories in order. Especially since the big fight at the end featured all of the couples from the previous stories coming to help Nash and Denali.
Great story with plenty of steamy scenes, these two lion shifters certainly deserve their HEA after everything they've been through!

One of the best

Best one in the series. Nash’s story is heartbreaking and it was great to get his story. Denali was fierce and I liked her! Again more story then spanking is a winning combination. Glad I read the series and didn’t stop.

Oh. My. Gawd! I absolutely am loving the paranormal/shifter romances this year. They never cease to surprise me, not matter which one i've picked up so far. And by far, the collaborations between Renee Rose and Lee Savino - perfect! There was so much good things about this book, that i took a four hour story and cut it down to roughly an hour and a half, two hours just because i wanted to keep it lasting longer than it should.

I haven't read every single book there is to this series. Trut

Edge of your seat thrill ride of a romantic adventure filled with danger, secrets, longing, passion, heartbreak and hard tugs on the heart strings.... Loved every breath taking twist.

Nash and Denali are prisoners in a evil experiment lab when they are thrown together for one night. Both of their worlds are turned upside down and inside out by this encounter and after they escape separately things just get more dangerous. Could not get enough of this highly entertaining journey.

Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod.
I freakin' loved this book, and this series. Lee Savino and Renee Rose are the Lennon and McCartney of this genre.
Their ability to weave a tale, invest the reader and keep him/her hooked until the satisfying end is incredible. I laughed, cried (big, fat tears), and cheered while reading this story in one sitting. Oh, and have I mentioned the sex scenes? Dayum.

It was everything I could want. I loved both Nash and Denali. Except for fighting, Nash has been afraid to let his lion out. He is taking longer and longer to heal and believes his end will be upon him soon...and then he gets an address that could change everything.

Denali escaped soon after being mark mated with Nash. The guilt of not going back and rescuing him has hung heavily on her shoulders, but she has so

This is one of the best endings to a series and it wraps everything up nicely. Both Nash and Denali have been to hell and back but their lions can't live without each other. Each has been hurt by others and by each other but Nash feels really back for hurting her and regrets. When something both Nash and Denali love is taken from them, the gang all gets together to help save him. Will Nash and Denali ever get their past settled so they can be free in their futures? And will the bad guys win? Get ...more

Most heartbreak book in this series

Each and everyone of these books has its own heartache, torture, abuse. They also have forgiveness, healing love, family and finding that one person (mate) that completes and heals you. This book is no exception to those phrases but what this book has also, is a war hero not only overcoming ptsd but years of torture, abuse and experimentation at the hands of sadistic AF people! Yes this is a shifter book, yes it has continued characters from all the other stori

Absolutely Riveting

I absolutely love this book series. The way these two authors weave their tales. The characters, created full of depth both emotionally and storyline. I really enjoy reading these books. They are full of action, suspense and romance wrapped up together. I can't wait to read the next one.
I have been waiting for Denali and Nash story for a while now, and I have to say: It was worth it!!! but let’s get real, who doesn’t love a broken hero and strong heroine love story with great sex and sprinkle with action and adventure?

Bad Boy Alphas, Book 7. Lion and tigers and bears...and wolves, even owls? Oh my!

Can you survive a broken and out-of-control lion clawing its way from the inside out? Nash lives with that terror every day. Surviving Afghanistan? No cake walk for sure but he did it. Data-X? Those horrors nearly destroyed him. Then fate literally threw Denali in his path. One night...that's all it took. In the blink of an eye, Nash and Denali's lives were forever changed. And then she was gone. If Nash thought he'
Wowsers this is one hot and steamy romance, with a decent story to boot

I've read a few of the Bad Boy Alpha books, which this links into though it can be read as a stand alone. I have enjoyed the books I have read so far, and wanted to continue with the story arch that runs in the background. One of the good things about the series is how different each story is. So whilst I knew to expect a well written story, I didn't know if it would be quite serious, light-hearted, full of angst or suspens

When authors can tap into the pain and betrayal a person would feel in a situation honestly enough to dredge up buried memories I know I have found a winner. That is exactly what this book did for me. Nash is broken, almost shattered, by his experience at Data-X. Even more so than the other shifters, which is saying a lot, because he volunteered. He went to them thinking they could help him and all they did was torture and abuse him. The feelings of betrayal in a situation like that can leave sc ...more

Alpha’s War is the seventh book in the Bad Boy Alphas series. Nash and Denali went through some horrific events in the Data-X labs, but after a mating bite, Denali ran for freedom while Nash fights. As Nash’s lion gets more and more out of control, he desperately needs his mate, and when he finds her after four years, their reconnection is intense and explosive. Denali is hesitant to bring him close, however, and while Nash wants nothing but to be close, he holds himself away due to his lion. Ca ...more

I've been waiting for this since their first encounter!

Ever since that one night in the cage at the "testing facility" Nash and Denali have been in the back of my mind. I was frustrated that they were apart, happy that she escaped and satisfied that Nash got at least some revenge when he destroyed those hell-houses.

But there were so many open questions. Now, finally, we get answers.
Nash is in bad shape. All he can do to keep his lion in check, is fight almost every night in an underground shifte

"Once bitten, you're mine"

I received an Advance Reader Copy for ALPHA’S WAR: A BAD Alpha Dad Romance (Bad Boy Alphas, Book #7) written by Renee Rose & Lee Savino and voluntarily reviewed this book. After escaping the shifter prison labs, Nash, their most prized prisoner and lab subject, found himself desperately clinging to his sanity, barely surviving day to day. The only thought that kept him going was finding his mate, Denali, holding close to his heart t

The King of the Jungle is back for his Queen!!

Nash is definitely a tortured character. His time spent in the Data-X labs has really messed him up. His lion is freaking nuts and craving pain and blood. But more than that, it is also craving his mate, if only he could find her. But find her he does and boy does that open a whole new case of crazy into his life.

Denali lost everything thanks to Data-X. And when she saw her chance, she took it to escape. Her regret was that she didn’t get N

Bad Boys Alphas is a fantasy/romance series written by Renee Rose and Lee Savino. They feature a set of alpha male werewolves who are destined to mate one specific woman, whether she is wolf, human or another breed of shifter.

 I discovered these books a week ago and have already devoured all seven.

Yup, allllllll seven!

I'm surprised I'm not dreaming about werewolves yet.

Nash feels like he is broken but he also knows that he needs Denali. She is his mate and he cant live without her. Denali has been hiding from Data-X but also Nash. She’s afraid that once he come for her, he’ll see what she has been hiding from him.

I have to say, this is more of a tender yet sad one. Nash may have volunteered with Data-X but they used him. Nash wanted to control his beast, his lion. But they lied to him. Then they threw Denali at him, for him to mate with. Nash being so torn, b

This is Nash and Denali’s story, book 7 in the Bad Boys Alpha series. Both were tortured and experimented on at Data-X and while Denali had escaped, Nash was stuck there for a while longer. After a forced breeding they ended up mated and once free, Nash decided to stay away from Denali for as long as he could (& didn’t even search for her) believing he was unsafe and might possibly hurt her with as aggressive as he believed his lion was and had shown itself to be in past situations.

This book was a nice surprise. I’ve never read either author or this series before and I’ve found a new addiction.

Nash and Denali were thrown together in one of the most awful situations, but they made the most of it, falling for each other immediately.

Three years have pass since their time together and Nash is a different ma, angrier, more volatile. In order to calm himself, he needs his woman, unfortunately she’s been on the run, hiding from the same people
