There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…
When Erith directs me to infiltrate the enemy and topple them from within, I immediately accept the challenge. I figure it’ll be easy until a stunning warrior goddess crosses my path and diverts my attention. The problem? She’s in league with those I was sent to take down. However, I soon discover there is more to her than meets the eye and quickly find my mission divided: disband this new group of Fae Others and save the gorgeous Light from her family—and herself. All it takes is one look, one conversation to know that she’s mine, and I will chance Death’s displeasure to make it so. But the risks are great. Because when you fall in love with the enemy, more than your heart is on the line.
Contains mature themes.

Dark Alpha’s Obsession is a good introduction to the Reaper series, although it’s the latest release.
What did I think about it?
Another Gripping Story In This Addictive Paranormal Romance Series
I’m a fan of Donna’s books and have read them all in this series. As I’ve said before, her writing style is easy to read and I like the way she paces the development of her plots. I love the fantasy world that Donna has created. Her characters are never just good or evil, she creates complex souls with a multifaceted mix of positive and negative traits. This makes them more credible; bringing them to life in my mind.
I connect to a story more when the female protagonist has certain personality traits.
Fianna is a skilled fighter, respected leader and loyal to a fault to her brother and father. I loved watching her grow, learning about her life and getting to know her in this story. Fianna’s journey wasn’t easy at times, but I admired her intelligence, resilience and strength. Rordan, being a Reaper, obviously, means that we’ve met him before in previous books. However, it was great to get beneath his skin and get inside his head during this one. In fact, I liked the way that we learnt more about existing characters in this tale as well as some new faces too.
Victoria McGloven is still a fairly new-to-me voice actor.
I enjoyed her performance and liked the pace at which she read this book. However, I found her reading of the narrative lacked emotion during certain scenes. The voices she created for the different characters meant that I was never confused as to who was speaking. Victoria managed to capture Fianna’s personality perfectly; conveying her emotions, hopes and worries to a tee.
Donna loves the romantic aspect between her lead couple to be concluded by the end of each book.
I love Happy Ever After endings too. Woop! Woop! But Dark Alpha’s Obsession isn’t just about the romance between Fianna and Rordan. There are a couple of other plot threads weaved together in this tale. I liked that we had these other storylines to follow while watching the trials and tribulations of Fianna and Rordan’s romance.
I really enjoyed this audiobook; it was a tale that kept me listening from start to finish!
Dark Alpha’s Obsession has everything that I look for in a good paranormal romance story; adventure, mystery, action, great characters, some humour, romance and a sprinkling of passion.
This book has graphic violence and explicit sex as well as some darker themes. Therefore, I’d only recommend this book to adults who are OK reading material of this nature.
I’d recommend Dark Alpha’s Obsession to adults who enjoy paranormal romance tales. Readers who’re looking for honourable heroes and heroines who have plenty of gumption. Especially those fans who want a gripping multi-layered backstory with action, romance, oh, and a bit of blush-worthy titillation.

Reapers centres around Death (Erith) and her group of Reapers. Death is the judge and jury of the Fae world and her Reapers are the ones who carry out the executions when she’s passed sentence on those most deserving of Fae. The Reapers are a mixed bunch of seven Light and Dark Fae. Baylon, Kyran, Talin, Fintan, Eoghan and their leader Cael. Each book follows the romance of one of these impressive males and the woman who brings him to his knees and claims his heart.
