You will love the heat, the emotion, the sexiness! Each book is unique and caters to the authors writing style.
I fully admit I have only read 2 authors previously but now I'm hooked on all of them! Seriously amazing!!! I will reread this anthology over and over! Each book is short and sweet, perfect for anthologies, do I wish there more to them? Sure, but I do for nearly every book I read. These books are all great and not to be missed!!!
5 wicked bad stars from NADBB!!
Reviewed by Krystal.
For Blood by J.R. Gray-When the sister of Alex, the alpha of a fueding pack, convinces him to allow her to marry the Alpha of the opposing pack; he thinks her intentions are for his own gain and agrees. Though is that what she really wants? This short is full of desire, lust, and hidden agendas. It will keep you wondering how will the story end, and you won't be disappointed when it does!
Destiny Realized by Khloe Wren-With a serial killer on the loose looking for his next victim, there was no way Leo or Val were about to let there sister go to the store on her own. There was no way they would allow that evil man to harm another woman if they could help it. And as fate would have it on their journey they came upon a car stalled along the road. But would they arrive in time to help whoever it was? Or was it to late? This short is very intense and I absolutely love the fact that this Alpha of the leader of a Puma shifter pack. This story had me gasping through every point, and to watch what fate had in the cards was spectacular.
Exiled Alpha by Amber Morgan- What is one to do when their father, who just so happens to be the Alpha, is murdered? How do they avenge his demise? Well for Rachel the answer was to go find Arkady. He was the former Alpha of their pack after all, before her father fought for the right to the pack and kicked Arkady out. A big, bad werewolf who could take out just about anyone. But what would it cost her and was she willing to pay the price? This short is raw and intense filled with carnage and canal nature which will have all your emotions on high alert. It will have you filled with anger and grief as well as steamy and aroused all at the same time. A very good take that ends with a twist. Loved it!
Drakon's Prize by Moira Callahan- After numerous unsubstantiated claims were made to the Supernatural Council, they decided that for one year they would have a human live with each Clan and report back to the Council on a weekly basis. This way they would know if anything was going on that went against Council law, and it could be taken care of promptly. Allegra Hanson, daughter of Councilman Hanson, was chosen to oversee the Blackened Clan. Her father along with the Councilwoman Chavez told her it would be a good fit since her thesis paired with the current situation the Blackened Clan was facing. Ali wasn't convinced but knew that since it would ultimately help her out she couldn't pass up the opportunity. Once she arrived on Blackened lands and laid eyes on the Alpha, she realized things in her life were about to change. Though at the time she didn't understand just how much our in what way. By the end of this short Allegra experiences many life altering situations and an unexpected fall that could end everything she knew. Would the dragon shifting Alpha be the one to save her, or was she destined for another fate? This story was so intense and powerful, making the reader see that just because our mind may not understand doesn't mean that the heart hasn't known all along.
Tiger's Mate by April Zyon- This was such a creative story; one in which two individuals from two different worlds unexpectedly run into one another and find themselves surrounded by death. Kurt, a tiger Alpha, left his streak not wanting to take on the role instead choosing to live his life by his own terms. Alexa, a woman able to communicate with the deceased, lives her life avoiding highly populated areas in order to keep a semblance of calm and quiet. A chance encounter puts them in each other's paths and they find an undeniable connection which could have them facing have danger. Will they be able to overcome all obstacles and find their happy home, or will the members of Kurt's streak interfere and leave them in turmoil? I thoroughly enjoyed the way this story was so different from most that you read; it definitely had me purring with excitement and intrigue.

The SOA must find a way to immobilize them and keep them from wreaking havoc on humanity. Unfortunately the doctor who was working on a venom that would do just that left the Agency after his family was murdered by vampires and he was unable to save them in time. The task of finding him and getting him to return to the aid of the Agency is left to a female agent, Sylvia. Will she find him in time?

This short is full of darkness and despair and in the middle of it all is passion and lust; definitely an all consuming read that will keep you enthralled until the end.
Resisting His Mate by Lynn Burke- This novella is so full of emotion it's like reading an entire series. A woman trying to escape the torture of her ex-husband finds herself near death, hypothermia staying to set in while she floats down an icy cold river clinging to a long for dear life. Clare suddenly felt the wind whipping hard around her and after finding the strength to open her eyes saw the most miraculous goshawk she'd ever seen in her life, her love of birds and vast ornithological knowledge allowed her to notice the glimmer of something more humanlike in its eyes. Then the voice in her head told her this hawk was precisely the one she needed to find in order to save her life, when he flew off all she was left with was dispair. Would he come back? Would he save her? Or would she die after finally escaping the clutches of the man who held her captive? The words of this story grab hold of your mind from the very start and make you feel like you are living in the story and not just reading it. Absolutely phenomenal!

The time of this short is rather dark and menacing, though in the pitch dark there is a flash of white. It is in this new light that the truth find a way to overshadow any doubts and love finds a way through.

A very good read.

Are you ready to meet smoking hot Alphas? Looking to see shifters who know what it means to take charge? Well look no further than Bad Alpha anthology.
While I struggled with a few stories in the anthology, overall I really enjoyed it. My favorite stories were Tiger’s Mate by April Zyon and Always Midnight by Ashlynn Monroe. Both authors did a wonderful job of giving me everything I needed to enjoy both the stories and the characters. Both gave me strong female characters which I thoroughly enjoy. Now April has always provided me with a good read and Ashlynn was a new to me author that I will be looking to see what else she has to offer.
A few of the authors gave me stories in which I found myself confused. It felt like I was dropped into the middle of the story and it was a struggle to immerse myself into their worlds. The characters were interesting but I felt that I missed part of the story.
Overall, this anthology was well balanced. I had an opportunity to look into the minds of new to me authors as well as a couple of old standards. And I am looking forward to getting to know a few of them a little better. This anthology is well worth your time and money.
Drakon's Prize by Moira Callahan
Drakon's Prize is about a dragon shifter named Drakon who finds his mate in the unlikely form of a council spy. At first she is unwanted. Because let's face it, no one likes to be spied on. However, this changes when they actually meet. This is a great short story to read, and I hope it turns into more. There is a couple bad guys, a Hot dominant Alpha, a women taking a job that turns out to be her happily ever after. It's a great story. I loved reading about Drakon and Allegra, and I guarantee you shall as well.
Tiger's Mate by April Zyon
This was a very interesting book, that had a paranormal twist in wasn't expecting. However, it made it all the more interesting. The main heroine, Alexa, has a talent one might say that would be enough to get most people commited. While getting some groceries she met a man named Kurt, who as luck will have it is the perfect man for her. After a second meeting and some secret sharing, they accept each other for who they are. But there is another challenge to face, will they survive? You will have to read to see... this book was a short read, but very well written. I loved reading about Kurt and Alexa, and hope to see more of them in the future. If you like Alpha males willing to protect the ones they love, you will definitely love this book as well.
