Feral, unstable, and hungry for blood are a few words used to describe a rogue. They also describe Alec Andrews' leopard. The man is broken. The only things keeping him sane are his family, his pack, and a mate he can't claim. Because claiming Rhea will bring her spiraling down with him the day the darkness wins.

The wolf den mother, Rhea Scott will make Alec hers. Whatever

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
It was a great book !
What do you do when you have a stubborn male as a mate ?
He knows she is his mate, and she knows he is her mate.
However, he does not want to make her his mate.
His excuse is that he is trying to protect her from his past.
Bollocks to that!
Rhea is fed up with it.
Then danger comes, and Alec will have make a decision.
You will have to read the book to find out.
It has all the ingredients that yo

The advisory to read this series in order was at the end of my book. It really needs to be read in order so it is better understood. There were enough Easter eggs that I pieced the situation together though. I did enjoy Alex and Rhea's story. ...more
Alpha Challenge is the 10th book in the Ashwood Falls series, and while I highly recommend reading them in order because there are a lot of carryover plots and characters, you could read them individually and still get a really great romance with a lot of great shifter war action.

Just as the shifters of Ashwood Falls think they have defeated the pack intent on destroying them, an attack steals away their young and the hunt is on to get them back. I wish this had been a little bit harder to do. W

As someone who kind of just jumped right into the Ashwood Falls series (with Alpha Challenge being my first one), I would say that I probably would've benefited more and understood more of the same problems that seem to carry on throughout the series. I also feel it would help readers understand a bit more of the hierarchy and the history with all the characters that help to tie in with the ongoing story.

As for Rhea and Alec's story, this is a complete romance between both shifters. For Rhea it'

Two worlds collide. Both try their hardest to repel the other, until the magnetism becomes to strong. To many secrets & lies have built the walls around their hearts and could destroy them both. When Rhea is beyond helpless by the children taken from her, Alec can’t help but react & Rhea has no choice but to except.

This was a wonderful treat to step back into this world seeing what developed next. Bits and pieces when speaking of the characters and their traits and talents reminded me also why I adore this set of shifters. They are also still growing and changing which keeps it interesting but also the suspense that is woven keeps us glued. In this one a seem to be new enemy but kinda changed form with the ones with him pops up. We are also given a bit of insight of how the enemy changed. Alec and Rhea are ...more

Rhea was the fated mate of Alec. They both held secrets from one another, but loved was blooming.

Rhea has a dark past, of a Hunter. She was born into this gift, her former Alpha used it against her and mind controlled her to do his bidding. She was not the den mother of Ashwood pack. Only a few people knew this, including the Alphas. Alec was the Beta until his sister, Ana took the position. He still kept some of his duties, but was free to pursue Rhea. Rhea was a headstrong female, it matched g

If you are looking for a good paranormal passionate romance, this book is for you. I enjoyed Alec and Rhea's story very much. Rita is such a good strong wolf that is very maternal. She protects the young, even if it is with her life. Alec just wants to protect Rhea, even if that means not with him. Join these two on their journey, as they each try to get what they want.

These two together, their passion for their beliefs and each other was just a great read. The push and the pull between the two.

Alec watches Rhea his mate if only he can get Rhea cornered to allow the mating. Rhea is a strong maternal wolf with hidden depths that Alec will discover during a mission to save the children who were kidnapped.

This is just the beginning of an explosive story that just proves that the path to love in't always easy but worth it in the end. I have loved this series since the beginning and each episode gets better and better. Ms. Davis writes with passion, emotions , adventure and romance what mor

Overall rating: 4.5

Two shifters with very traumatic pasts discover they are mates. This author did a beautiful job show casing the seemingly insurmountable doubts they both had to overcome. Book ten of this series, the storyline sets up rapidly and leads a reader through action packed suspense. Emotions roll off these pages ! Stress places a mother in early labor, children fear the uncertain future, and the packs learn to blend and work together to become secure. Enjoyed this immensely and found

Another phenomenal addition to the Ashwood Falls series!!! I think it's my favorite so far. This was just the beginning of obstacles in the road that just prove that the path to love isn't always the easiest but worth the fight in the end. That was definitely the case in this story and I'm just a total sucker for second chances at love story. Overall a enjoyable and entertaining read.

I've read all the books in this amazing series and just love it! Alec Andrews is the Marshal of Ashwood Falls and is a leopard shifter. He's know for many years that the beautiful Rhea, the den mother to the children of Ashwood, was his mate. Not able to stay away from what is his any longer Alec claims his mate. Rhea fears getting too close to Alec, that he may discover her secret and not want her.

This story is just as exciting as the others in this series, with lots of naughty mutants to figh

I'm pretty familiar with this series and have read most of them. I think I might have not read book 9 yet but I dont feel I missed anything so its all good. I liked both Alec and Rhea. Both are sorta hard headed and are a very good match for one another. They havent mated yet because there are a few secrets and so they are avoiding the issue until the situation with the mutants escalates and Alec figures it out. The series is definitely not over and unfortunately Onyx isn't finished with Ashwood ...more

Alpha Challenge is a tale of second chances and new beginnings. Both Alec and Rhea have differing reasons for avoiding the mating bond. The past has left them with scars they’ll need to overcome to have a future. I really like these two together. As they fight a common enemy they grow closer together. I really liked Rhea. She has an inner strength that I truly admired. This is a fantastic addition to the series and left me wanting more.

This was my first book in this series. It was a great quick read that makes me wanna go back to the start and read number 1. Based on the book, you could pick them up in any order or just read one. I really liked the way Alec and Rhea interacting throughout the story. So much more than just the 2 main characters. I loved how the POV changed to be more than just Alec or Rhea.
Great quick read with awesome characters.

I enjoyed the story though it would of been easier for me to follow had i started from the beginning of the series. What did surprise me was the amount of mistakes in the book, there were a lot.

Rhea and Alec have both suffered so much pain and loss they are afraid to mate but they can't fight it forever.
There's a new enemy out there.
They are about to enter another war when they just got out of one.

Alec and Rhea have been dancing around each other for years. When a new threat comes to town, will they be able to knock down their walls and work together to save others? Definitely read for yourself and see.

I really enjoyed this quick read. And I'm so happy to be back in the Ashwood Falls world. I do recommend reading the other books in the series just so you're familiar with the characters.

Alpha Challenge

A fun paranormal romance full of shifters and humans with mutant powers. I enjoyed the story but will have to go back and read the others I felt like I missed a lot from the series as a whole. It was still enjoyable to read but I would love to get the whole back story.

Great story!

Wow, talk about a page turner! It's a story that once you start you won't be able to put down. It has romance, suspense, and surprises. Alec and Rhea both have to take a leap to be together. They figure this out as the pack works to get back their own. Definitely recommend this!

The stories of Ashwood Falls are intense. I would advise that you read them in order to fully understand each book in the series. With evil around every tree and the mutants now having more abilities and thoughts. Alex and Rhea finally open up to each other with secrets and being mates. I do enjoy this series it builds with each book in the series.

I loved revisiting Ashwood Falls! You definitely need to read the previous books in this series before this book. And it is such an addicting series! A new evil has emerged so the war continues. But the love story between Alec and Rhea is heart warming..... but so hot!

Sometimes it takes something major to push you to what you need and want. That's what happens with Alec and Rhea. They know they are mates, but the past seems to be keeping them apart. Until something unimaginable happens. This was a quick, action packed read that I really enjoyed. ...more

Now that war is over there are dangers lurking. Rhea is Alec’s mate but before the get together secrets have to be revealed. It’s a fun and entertaining book with lots of action and I could read about the different couples handling their new lives together.
