Book one in the True Alpha Serial series
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Net Galley for an honest review.
Shifters live in the shadows of Seattle, just under the skin of the alpha male, dot-com entrepreneurs who are building a new Silicon Valley in the Emerald City.
Mia is just a college girl trying to earn her business degree and dig out of the poverty she was born into–being a shifter is something she hides, hoping her secret won’t sabotage her dreams.
Lucas is a broken alpha, a wolf who lost his mate, his pack, and almost himself–he wasn’t looking to rescue a girl or start a pack war. But now he has to keep her safe or it won’t just be her life, but his whole family at risk… only his inner wolf can’t seem to keep its paws off a girl who has secrets of her own.
This was going to be a two star book up until the very end for me. The writing was alright, but something about it just didn’t click with me. Could be a case of a new author finding her ropes, or just not compatible with me personally, because if you go by the other reviews my opinion is an exception to the rule.
I had a hard time caring for the characters and the drama going on. I also had a tough time picturing every thing in my head as I read. Which is kinda odd because there was an abundance of description. Perhaps too much in this case. When I read I can fill in the trivial details myself and actually have an easier time getting into the book if some things are left out. Book also felt too similar to others I’ve already read, the world needed something to set it apart from the others. There needed to be more of a twist to make it stand out.
Like I said the book did pick up at the very end, and while it may have earned it another star, I’m not sure I will continue on. The action picked up and there was a good steamy scene between the two leads that I’m sure is going to be appreciated by many readers. The book also ended with on hell of a cliffhanger to bring readers back for the next installment. I’m just not going to be one of them.
