The Alpha's Hunger Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Lying on the floor of her cubicle to stave off a migraine while working late, the last thing Ashley Bell expected was to open her eyes and find the company's notoriously hard-assed owner and CEO, Ben Stone, standing over her. The offer of a ride home is a bigger surprise, but the biggest shock of all comes when Ben asks her to work for him as his personal assistant.
Despite some misgivings about his intentions, Ashley accepts the position, but she has barely started the job when a phone call turns her life on its head. Her twin sister has been kidnapped, and the price for her life is Ashley's help in a secret plot to destroy Ben's company. But she soon discovers that Ben has a far more terrifying secret of his own.
From the moment he first crossed paths with Ashley, the beautiful young human from marketing, Ben has been consumed by her. When her life is threatened by his enemies, he casts aside caution and fights with the rage of a beast defending his mate. Not sure he can trust her yet determined to protect her, Ben kidnaps Ashley, planning to keep her under his watch for as long as necessary.
Ashley is none too happy with the situation, but a hard bare-bottom spanking changes her attitude...and leaves her begging for more. Though Ben knows a human girl is no match for the fearsome lusts of an alpha wolf, she ignites in him a hunger he can barely contain. Can he resist the urge to mark her as his own and take her harder than she can imagine?

Without giving too many spoilers away, let me say that I was really blown away by this book. Renee Rose takes the classic alpha boss/secretary hook and adds twist after delicious twist! THE ALPHA’S HUNGER is a beautifully crafted story featuring a magnetically sexy, gloriously tormented Alpha Lone “Wolf” hero who is powerfully drawn to his new assistant, the adorably charming and feisty Ashley Bell. But, knowing deep down that falling in love with a human is a bad idea, he tries to suppress his fierce animalistic urges and vows to keep sweet Ashley at arm’s length. However, all bets are off when his beguiling secretary with the delicious curves and big blue eyes betrays him in the worst possible way, and now both their lives are in grave danger. Of course, there are fierce consequences to be paid for Ashley’s transgressions, and the big bad Ben Stone is not a man to be crossed!
I love the primal attraction between these two characters and how their relationship evolves as the characters become deeper entrenched in Ben’s dangerous and secretive Werewolf world. As a lover of all romance sub-genres (not just erotic bdsm/spanking romances), I have certain criteria to what makes a romance truly special: A unique premise that hasn’t been done hundreds of times. Hot, fiercely protective alpha heroes with a gentle touch. Sweet, smart, feisty heroines. Sizzling romantic chemistry brimming with emotional tenderness. Sparkling dialogue. And, most importantly, a deeply emotional component that melts my heart. THE ALPHA’S HUNGER has all that and more! It goes without saying that I was captivated by the book’s visceral romantic prose, suspenseful atmosphere, hot sensuality, and vibrant characters, but it was the emotional depth in this story that truly made this book shine. I found Ben’s deep inner turmoil to be particularly gripping, and I really believed that this gruff hero truly loved the heroine with every breath he took, and would do anything to protect her from harm. Even if that meant staying away from her forever. The inner battle he waged as he fought against his primitive instinct to mark her as is really resonated deeply, and added a nice level of complexity to this book.
And while the spanking scenes were unquestionably scorching hot, in my opinion, it was just icing on the cake and not the main draw of this book. I think all fans of the PNR genre looking for a hot, sexy, emotionally-provocative read would probably love this book, not just spanking erotica aficionados.
Bottom line: Renee Rose is now officially on my list of favorite romance authors I’ve read in 2015, and I look forward to eventually catching up on many of her backlist titles, as well as her future releases!
After the obsession with a certain young adult series, werewolves and vampires stories just didn't appeal to me. I've read a few here and there but for the most part I avoid any novels with the mention of them. I took a chance with this one because the synopsis intrigued me.
The writing was on point. Flowing evenly and effortlessly. The action packed scenes went hand and hand with the steamy ones making the story full of realistic emotions and feelings. Both heroine and hero were well developed in depth characters. Ben was alpha to the fullest, but his sweet side towards Ashley was heart warming. Ashley was slightly shy and soft-spoken with a hidden spitfire personality that went well with Ben's natural dominance. Their chemistry was the perfect combination.
The story itself was what caused the 4 star rating. Although no where near original, the plot was thick with just enough action and steam to keep me reading until I was done. On top of that the love story that was weaved in between was adorable. I took me one sitting to finish it because I was unable to put it down.
This is my first novel by the author but defiantly not last. I've become a fan of paranormal and erotica romance if written by this author. Book 2 is already ready to be downloaded.

I love the concept, and the smooth, well-written narrative.
Finally, I have found a billionaire CEO worth swooning over in the deliciously naughty, Ben Stone! The D/s, discipline dynamic is seriously hot, and I believed in the burgeoning romance between Ben & Melissa.
All in all, a fabulous spanking romance from Renee Rose!
