Book Review: ALPHA by Jasinda Wilder - Giveaway

Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: April 29, 2014


The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing…except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?

I did.

The next month, I received another check, again from VRI Incorporated. It too contained a single word: "belong."

A third check, the next month. This time, two words. Four letters. "To me."

The checks kept coming. The notes stopped. Ten thousand dollars, every month. A girl gets used to that, real quick. It let me pay the bills without going into debt. Let me keep my baby brother in school and Mom's hospice care paid for. How do you turn down what seems like free money, when you're desperate? You don't. I didn't.

And then, after a year, there was a knock on my door. A sleek black limousine sat on the curb in front of my house. A driver stood in front of me, and he spoke six words: "It's time to pay your debt."

Would you have gotten in?

I did.

It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.



This book was pure and exquisite hotness!! Omg, it completely set both my mind and body on fire with its elegant and dirty ways of describing the tension and connection between two of the most hot characters I have ever read about. But there was another important component here that absolutely brought it home for me. The mystery.

There was so much mystery in this story that I was so hooked and crazy eager to find out all the truths and revelations. The way Jasinda unfolded this story was perfect, I was in suspense from beginning to end and I loved every part of it. :D

Kyrie is the heroine in this incredible seductive story. I loved her personality, she's strong, feisty, sensual, and not very much afraid of taking risks. So in her desperate situation and with her determined personality, it wasn't hard to see her taking the risk of cashing those checks even without knowing what would that mean for her later. So the question is who does Kyrie "belongs to" after cashing the checks? Who sent them to her?? Well, that's where the delicious mystery/suspense grabs you like nothing else and when you get to meet HIM, he'd just blow your mind completely.

The journey of meeting this man and living every moment of it through Kyrie's eyes was so freaking exciting and irresistible. HE is an ALPHA without a doubt and he carries on his title to the maximum. I was blown away by the powers of control, seduction, and pleasure this man possessed. He was just the perfect incredible hot dream of any woman!❤️

Besides the steam and mystery this story also had amazing unexpected twists! I usually can predict major secrets in most books but with Alpha I could not. I totally did not expect things to turn out the way they did and I loved that. I was so engaged at savoring each chapter that I didn't see beyond what I was reading at the moment so yes, the big reveals really came as big surprises for me.

This is definitely another winner story by Jasinda Wilder. Alpha is an absolute pleasurable book that leaves you in a very hot cloud nine after you finish it. It's the perfect read to unwind and submerge in an exquisite and powerful world of intense passion. I loved it so of course I recommend it! ;)
