    So far just the set up of the world and the meeting of the Alphas and their mate. No tag teaming so far. I am on to the next one to see how this plays out. Nice quick read!

    3 starsWhoa, is this ever a lightweight, if steamy, story. A lottery is held across a few towns to find a "volunteer" mate for a werewolf pack. The Lazarus wolf pack to be specific. The towns want protection from other wolf packs and the Alpha of the Lazarus pack wants a human mate who will bear them pups. Turns out female werewolves are non-fertile. Well, the fun hitch to this story is that there are TWO alphas to this pack, one holds the intellect and one holds the brawn. Mila, the volunteer, has been obsessed with werewolves since she was twelve. So she eagerly shouts "ME, ME, ME! She doesn't realize what she's getting into, but bravely sets off into the forest, her fate sealed. Well, lucky for her, she's getting a white knight and a bad boy hottie. She doesn't realize they will eventually have to fight for her. But, hey, why not have both? And so the story goes, this is a 6 part series. The first four are available now.*3 stars don't mean this was poorly written, it's just that as a 60 page novella it's incomplete and I can't rate it as I would a full novel.

    This was the beginning of this series and my first time reading this author. A human female volunteers to become the mate of an alpha werewolf Mila had no idea that the group had two alphas. One wolfs is more attuned to his animal thus wilder and violent. The other is more of a peacetime leader, better at human/pack dynamics and such. Both are strong, and in their own ways domineering while at the same time passionate for their new mate. Mils is loving the attention but at the same time a bit lost in her new environment she learns that the Alpha's will have to fight to the death for the right to mate with her so she comes up with a plan for them to share her. The both left me feeling that some things were missing the way it ended and although I gave this book 3 stars it was more like 2.5 I hope that the books get better.

    An intriguing start to a serial. Taking no more than thirty minutes to read, this book is really an introduction.Asche and Caim are both alpha males of a single wolf pack. And they're best friends; they share everything. Until now. Needing to introduce a human female to the pack for breeding purposes, without consultation or consideration for the consequences, Asche introduces a human mate to his pack. Mila is desperately looking for a way out of normalville human life. So when her kin's family's hold a lottery for a wolf-mate, to allow them wolf protection, she volunteers without a thought for the consequences. Thrown into a world she can only barely understand, Mila quickly realises that when she becomes fertile the two Alpha's will be compelled by their nature to fight for her, and it will be a fight to the death. Determined not to be responsible for the death of either one she tries to find a way to make it work for all three. But drawn to one wolf's charm and gentle, even romantic nature, while the other wolf sets her on fire with passion and lust, is it something she can handle...The book leaves off for the second in the serial just as things start to get interesting.When I started reading, I wasn't sure just how likeable Mila would be as main character, and although she has her moments, I'm still not sure. Caim is also not the most engaging of characters thus far. In fact the only assets he displays in book one are physical. Ache is by far the most redeeming character and by the end of the book I just wanted everything to be resolved for him. Whether this will be paranormal, werewolf menage, or a passionate tale of one woman's bed hopping between two wolves, I don't yet know. But it's certainly piqued my interest. What I would say, is if you think this book is for you, then download at least the first two or three, because they're over in the blink of an eye, leaving you wanting to know more.Awarded three stars as it took me until about halfway through to warm up to the characters and the situation, which initially felt contrived. But I'm hopeful that the next instalment will be much more enjoyable.

    Promising startMila Foster finds herself about to become a mate to the alpha of the Lazarus pack, Mila volunteered for this position and is excited and a little frightened at what her future holds. The Lazarus pack needs her because their females are unable to bear children and their alpha Asch desperately wants a mate and a family.Mila is impressed with Asch, he's handsome and everything she could have hoped for, this could turn out to be a good decision after all...until Mila finds out that the Lazarus pack actually has two alphas and Cain the other alpha is nothing like Asch at all and he's not impressed with the thought of a human mate.I really enjoyed this book but not being a fan of short serial books I'm going to wait until they're all available before I continue on.

    With this book I am really conflicted. The book was a good read, but the ending, if you can really call it an ending, stunk. The author has wrote a second book that picks up where this book ends. In my opinion this book and the second book should be one book. I am not sure that I will even buy the second book even though the story is good.

    The overall idea of the way werewolves live and why do they need a human mate is quite interesting and unique, I like the way werewolves were portrayed in this book as more wild animals than civilized humans.What I don't like is Mia, the main character...her motivations for offering herself as alpha mate are so banal and she is so superficial

    Engaging start to the series. As I was getting into it, it ended so I would have preferred for it to be just one big story instead of several parts.

    The premise of Claimed by the Alphas was fun - humans share borders with were-creatures, and a small town has a lottery to decide which women gets sacrificed to be a bride to the wolves in order to get the pack's protection against other were-creatures who have been harassing the area.The winner of the lottery (SHIRLEY JACKSON'S The Lottery!!!*) is a nineteen-year-old girl. The main character finds out what the whole lottery is about, thinks, "Hot werewolf guys???" and volunteers to be taken in place of the girl.*I never thought I'd be able to make that reference.From there, the story starts sounding an awful lot like Falling for the Alphas: Part One*.*Claimed was actually published several months before Falling. I hadn't looked at the publication dates, I was just referencing them in the order I read them. Thanks to the person who pointed that out to me!The werewolves need to breed with humans, because they can't have children with other werewolves. The pack that Mila gets sent to has two Alphas, one who lived as a human for seventeen years before deciding he couldn't stand hiding his inner wolf anymore, and the other is more wolf than man.The pack doesn't welcome Mila warmly, because now that they've got a human, the two Alphas will end up fighting each other to the death for her, which will leave the pack weak against an attack from those other were-creatures that have been hanging around.So the obvious answer is, the Alphas have to share her, so that the pack will remain strong, and the Alphas won't have to kill each other, which is good because they're like brothers.Both this and Falling for the Alphas end with the woman having sex with the more wolf-like Alpha, despite the fact that the more wolf Alpha is initially uninterested in the flabby human.Werewolf Romance Rule Count:Rule #1 - Werewolf babies solve everything.Rule #2 - Mating with two Alpha wolves always works out perfectly.Rule #2.5 - In cases where there are two Alpha males, one is always more human, the other is always more wolf.Rule #3 - Werewolves desire women with curves, because female werewolves are all lean and muscular.Rule #4 - Werewolves cannot breed with other werewolves.Rule #5 - It's rutting season.

    This review is for the whole Claimed series.It's been a long time since I've read a book I haven't been able to put down. This series of novellas is one of the best stories I've come across. Cannot praise it enough.I bought all 5 available books and read them within 3 days. The books are short, and any complaint about this should be seen as a compliment. Yes, they are short and I wish for more, but this is the authors prerogative and I would never dictate the length of another's story.It's a wonderful thing when you discover an author who can create a story that is perfectly in tune with every need I have as a reader. If you like werewolves, romantica, love triangles, developed characters and satisfying POV, with a good story then you will enjoy this.The premise of two alpha werewolf males with one human mate intrigued me. Initially I assumed gratuitous sex scenes. There is nothing like it. The mating is primal and organic. It brings to mind why humans were originally having sex 1000s of years ago. For a purpose. To relieve a need and have babies. The sex was so according to the characters' nature that it wasn't a strange thing for the three of them to be together.World building. The wolf pack dynamics are realistic and complex. They rely on dominance to rule, yet there are still layers of other rules I found fascinating.As well, you can see a glimpse of the urban fantasy world outside the packs valley to know it's well thought out and solid. There are also werecats mentioned in the series.Characters. An interesting mix of humanistic and animal. They have depth and are a great contrast to each other, especially the two males. Backstory between the 2 males is in brief. I would love to see more of their history and why they were Alphas together. Asch leans more towards his human side, and is the steadier of the two, while Caim is more the wolf. The woman fits in with their wolf needs, though at times she adds a realistic human slant to all the wolfyness. There is no MM in this story, which I was glad of, although there is MWM and that I did enjoy.Story. So happy to find a great story as well, with some action and threads that could lead to further stories. Writing quality. Apart from occasional errors, which I overlooked, writing is well done. Beautiful descriptions. Deep POV.This story has left a strong imprint on me.

    When an escalation of attacks on a town by neighboring shapeshifters threatens the town's population, a deal is struck where the town agrees to provide a female who will agree to be the mate of the Lazarus alpha in exchange for protecting the town.A lottery is held and Mila Foster is chosen. Little does she realize that there are two alphas but only one will become her mate. A battle of supremacy will decide which of them will have the right to be her mate while the loser ends up dead or banished. This 17,000 word count first installment serial story has the expected set up for an exciting tale of paranormal erotica romance. The vague open ended teasers are intended to grab the reader and encourage them to buy the follow up installments (or in this case ... parts) as this read is an incomplete story and you'll only find out what happens if you buy more installments. What I liked about this book was that a BBW woman became the lust interest of two men. There is a solo quickie erotic scene that did include the basics but lacked any depth - I'd liken it to a "wham bamm thank you ma'am" scene. The actual story line had just enough substance to have me think I'd just read a prequel of sorts in which girl sacrifices herself for the good of her town only to find herself in a hostile environment as she will be responsible in weakening the pack.... to be continued. Full disclosure: Regularly listed as $0.99, I received this on Amazon as a freebie. It has 68 pages (17,000 word count) and ends in a cliff hanger. The next installment Claimed by the Alphas: Part Two is listed for $0.99 on Amazon with a page count of 50 pages (12,500 word count). Claimed by the Alphas: Part Three is listed on Amazon for $0.99 with a page count of 65 pages (16,000 word count). When I go to the author's website/blog I did see that this will be a six book set ... and ... there is a listing that she will be making this a "boxed set" in May/2014. Looking at that info the full price of the three existing installments is $2.97 for 183 pages. A bit pricey for me considering the author has plans to issue the entire 6 book collection in May/2014.

    1.5 Stars (Rounded up for the author's voice)I'm going to put aside the lack of editing and grammar issues to focus on the story and the characters.Some parts of this story just made me angry. Like the opening and the way the people living in the rural communities are portrayed as backward idiots. I live in a city, so it's not personal, but it was still offensive to me. Just because you have an accent and don't live in a fancy studio apartment in New York doesn't make you an idiot.What's even worse is that the heroine, Mila, is supposed to be so much better than the rural folk, mostly because she passed some test to go to the city. (This world-building aspect was never really explained...) But she's not. Why? Well, let's see:1) After reading some books by one person's experience with the werewolves, Mila thinks she knows everything and is surprised to find out things are different when she arrives. (Come one...reading one book or a series of books by one person is not going to tell you the whole truth. Especially when it sounds sexy and awesome, and only helps to feed your alpha fantasy.)2) She thinks wearing a tight dress and heels is the best way to greet the werewolves IN THE MIDDLE OF A FOREST. She later tells us via thoughts that she studied the wolves after the lottery for two months (??? how is this possible if she only read the one series of books? I don't know) and she knew how the wolf packs/territories worked. If so, why would you still think your NYC gear was appropriate for moving into a series of caves?3) Knowing nothing about Caim apart from him being a warrior and that he'll probably kill his friend during the "mating frenzy", Mila lets him have sex with her.Mila is just...TSTL. Seriously. I'm all for hot werewolf sex, but just because you think alphas take care of their mates doesn't make it a smart move to jump right into bed with one. ESPECIALLY when you've seen how different life is from what you expected.Not to mention she basically betrayed the other alpha (Asch) who was nice to her by sleeping with the a**hole first.Oh, and the female wolves are basically doormats/servants.If this were simply a good erotica story, I'd maybe overlook all of that. But the sex scenes and much of the book are "told" to us, not shown.So no, I won't be continuing with this series.

    Each book is just a short story. The setting is a world like ours but where 'Were creatures' are various and many and control most of the wilderness. Small towns that exist near pack territories make deals with the packs to ensure safety. Mila moves to her mother's home town and finds herself volunteering to be the mate of the Alpha of the local werewolf pack because apparently female Weres are infertile. Sucks for them! The Lazarus Werewolf pack has two alphas who are good friends and work well together as they each have their own strengths. Asch is the diplomat and Caim is the Warrior and closer to his wolf nature. For the most part, I did like the world building and the way the author would use the logistics of the world to create/further the plot so that the plot and the setting were integrally related. This all sounded so good at the start, BUT Mila is an annoying ninny throughout all 6 booklets. In fact most of the characters were unforgiveably annoying... except maybe Caim (well some of the time). I got to about 3/4 into the audiobook and it was almost a DNF for me, but I thought I made it this far... Then to top it all off, at the end there's this bogus excerpt from Mila's favourite author. It is basically the author getting up on her soapbox with 'There's no such thing as an HEA, as life goes on and sh*t happens (except worded in a more snobby know-it-all manner)'. Well no sh*t sherlock. I don't read trashy romance novels for life lessons. sheesh!

    As an aspiring author in this genre, I thought today was a good one to take a look at some of my peers. I started with Viola Rivard's Claimed by the Alphas mostly because the covers drew me in and most of the series seems to be completed. I try to have low expectations in that, I'll be appreciative of whatever I read, but I must say, I was blown away by this book. The writing is absolutely stellar. Lead characters Mila, Caim, Asch and my favorite Brae, were depicted in very real and vivid ways. There was a lot of back story dropped through as to the histories and motivations behind each character, and they act in relation to thus.Asch is supposed to be the Alpha of the tribe because of his leadership skills, but this time round, it was definitely Caim who stole the show. I appreciated for once being able to see the male side of these particulars and found it both unexpected and exhilarating.Even though there is a focus on the erotic and fantastic elements here, I could not help but believe that there was a fundamental, universal fable unfolding before our eyes. The actions here will have consequences!

    This is my second time reading this series and I can't believe I didn't do a review the first time.All I can say is Viola Rivard has given the readers a hot set of Alpha Werewolves Shifter to fall in love with. I've never really been into reading books like these but I was a big fan of True Blood so I gave it a try and now I'm a big fan. A human named Mila volunteered to serve as a breeder for the Lazarus wolf pack in exchange for the protection of her small town . Asche and Caim are the two Lazarus pack leaders both have shared responsibility of leading/protecting their pack, but it is time for them to find a mate. Caim has no plans to entertain the idea of Mila, but after being around her things change and Ashe is ready to find a mate and Mila is the kind of women he had been looking for. As both alpha's come to realize that they will have to fight each other to mate with Mila and one may have to leave the pack and/or die, but Mila has a plan of her own. Can't wait to read book two again.

    Most scenes are in a bed. Yep you heard it. It's about this human woman, Mila, who thinks it's a lot more interesting to be a part of a werewolf pack. She is promised to the Alpha of the pack to help them produce pups which will continue the lineage.But once in the pack, she finds out that there's TWO Alphas in the pack which never happens. She's torn between two of them and gets nervous of what is expected of her. And yes, she's expected to share between the two guys. This is just a rushed version of getting together, having romps in bed, trying to produce pups and figuring out if you love them or not.I liked the story, the characters, and the idea of two alphas of the pack. But I just couldn't get over the fact that this was so rushed. And frankly, I'm the type of girl who likes to see true love in one-on-one relationships that takes time, not a threesome that is just about spending time in bed.

    The writing was great. This 3 star review was not for the writing. The description of the wolves etc was good too. I have one problem and it ruined my entire enjoyment of this story. If I'm not mistaken this is a paranormal romance.The female protagonist forms a connection with one male and then ends up sleeping with another, who Incidentally doesn't like her 'soft' body. I like menage but some authors forget it's not just about three people having sex. It's about falling in love with two guys. Two separate and distinctive characters. How can you carry us down a road to intimacy with one character in your story and then by the end of the episode just have the female character have sex, not make love folks, to another character?If this was just pornography then anyone could sleep with anyone. But I wouldn't be reading it because I'm interested in 'romance.' I want an emotional connection with those characters. So. Disappointed.

    3.5 stars Interesting throw in this story where there are two male alphas in the pack which they both "might" be sharing a human female for mating - since they are already sharing a pack. Mila "human female" volunteered herself to be the alpha's mate after finding out a girl in the town was picked out of a lottery (like the hunger games) to procreate in exchange for the town's protection. Little did we know, her true intentions of actually volunteering herself was because she had wanted it just like the wolf stories she read - throwing everything she have for this fantasy of hers which might come true.Im definitely interested in reading some more but the thought of having to purchase installment parts of the book with only 50-70 pages is not worth the money. I probably would spend the money if the book was completed. *** Saw this book via Amazon for free and decided to give it a go - its in parts..idk how many the author will make as of yet.. ***

    My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!The cover looks really awesome :) I totally love it all especially the wolfs :)I picked this up as a freebie back in February, and I picked up the boxed set yesterday as well as what is out of the Bound series (which I loved!!). I really liked the set up of Mila’s story in Part One. I really like Mila because she is strong and wants something more of her life, but also doesn’t want to be the cause of any problems. I love how she tries to start finding a solution immediately.I definitely think this series is going to continue to get better and better :) Voila is awesome in her descriptions and setting up the story :) She is becoming a favorite :)I recommend this series to my shifter loving friends and even if you do not like serials because the entire series is out and can be purchased in a bundle to save money, but try Part One for free :)

    I downloaded this free on Amazon because let's face it...dual werewolf alphas. It sounded entirely too enticing not to read. It is a short story, which makes it wonderful when you just want something quick. But downside to that is that you'll get hooked and end buying the next one and the next one and so forth down the road. I know I did!Mila didn't know what she agreed to when she volunteered to be the mate of a werewolf. When she discovers how much her presence will alter their future she does the only thing she can think of...offer to mate with them both in order to protect the pack's future.What a combo these three make. Asch is the sweet, tender, and caring alpha who knows just how to make Mila feel cherished. Caim on the other hand is rude, crude, and aggressive, but he's that bad boy you love to hate.

    I downloaded this book for free on amazon not too long ago after it was recommended to me by a friend. The hook for me was the somewhat different approach to werewolves in a genre saturated with them.In CLAIMED by the ALPHAS, the first part of a serial collection, Mila Foster is introduced as the woman who volunteered herself in place of the winner in an unusual lottery. As a means of appeasing the local werewolf pack, and in exchange for receiving their protection from other packs, a few towns have hosted a lottery for the womenfolk. The "winner" is given to the Lazarus pack as a mate to produce pups to keep their kind going. It turns out that werewolf females are infertile, and Mila is in for a surprise when she finds out that this werewolf pack has not one, but two alpha males.It's a quick, interesting read that I'd like to continue with book 2.

    The plotting was excellent. The POVs short, to the point, moved the story and kept the pages turning. At no point did the world building overwhelm. Rivard gave enough to give readers a firm footing. The heroine was likeable; the two alphas were strong with very different personalities. Her dilemma at the end, which is as close as you can get to a cliffhanger without hanging off a cliff, is intriguing. And it worked. I bought the next installment immediately after the last page!I am hoping the next books are edited. There were a few spelling and grammar issues at the end. My major issue was in the tagging. There were times you didn't know who was speaking or whom the speaker was referring too when there was more than one person in the room or in their head.

    You know, I really don't understand how anyone said anything bad about this. Yes, I get that this particular story is being released bit by bit, but honestly it just makes me want to buy all the parts and read them. I think Miss Rivard did an amazing job! As a writer of werewolves, I really appreciated her knowledge of these fictional beings. I was instantly enamored with the tale by the second page and I had to keep reading. No, I haven't gotten the next part yet, but I WILL soon.Miss Rivard writes beautifully and the story flowed for me. It was perfect as far as writing goes and I am eager to find out what happens next. This isn't my most profound review, but the bottom line is...I enjoyed it immensely.

    This book was a free download on Amazon, so I thought what the heck lets give it a try and see what it's like. In the beginning I was confused because it would switch from character to character POV very quickly and I had to get used to who was who. But also that the Pack Mila joined actually lived in a cave/forest was very interesting. But I can say that I really disliked the character of Caim was a complete jacka**s. He was so rude and obnoxious, I almost had to stop when Mila was not falling for Asch the sweet and caring Alpha. I purchased part 2 from Amazon pretty cheap (99 cents) because I am wondering if Mila will choose both Caim and Asch or just one of the alphas. (Fingers crossed just one and that it's Asch).

  • Holly Ice

    Claimed by the Alphas part one is a short piece of fiction, more short story/chapter length than a true book, which did irritate me. However, the story telling is done well and the alternative world is shown to us bit by bit.This is a world where the less lucky of humanity live on the fridges, their towns bordering with werewolf territory. Mila decides to volunteer to be the closest pack's mate to protect her town.Mila lacks depth so far but is realistic in how she reacts to situations and this is one story where, so far, story does not get in the way of the sex. If I could give half points, I would give this 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    Honestly wasn't all that impressed with this book, it's really not my style of reading, women well in this case young teenage girls being sold off to be with werewolves against their will, than having some selfish seemly selfless feminine hero volunteer to be mated to an Alpha. To escape a life she thought to dull for her liking, only to find out what a horrible alpha one of the males are and a seemly more reasonable alpha the other is than coming to a ridiculous term of them sharing her. It's just not my particular style of reading I like, if anyone is interested in dominated abusive swinger relationships than you might enjoy this book more than I

    Love this compelling, spicy series. What strikes me as most interesting about it (other than the scorching heat level and the menage, of course) is that the author has done an excellent job building a world where the plot seems possible and naturally evolving. There are details, sparsely planted throughout this and the other books in the series, that lend to the overall refreshing story line. I don't want to give too much away, and I've got four more books in the series to review... but the fact that I read them all back to back and had to download one as soon as I was done with the last one should speak volumes!
