Dear Jasinda Wilder,
My wife has been going through a bit of an ordeal and I can't even begin to tell you how happy it made me to see her get lost in this story. I also can't tell you how happy it made me, that you wrote such a hot story. She not only got lost but was able to get lost in me! The best gift ever and for that I thank you. I praise you for how good you made the dirty. It made this week amazing.
sincerely, a very happy husband

Rarely am I speechless when giving a review...but there is SOOO much to say and all of it sounds kind of hokey....kind of like when you are enthralled in a soap opera and you try to explain it to a friend and it just comes out sounding so dumb, but in the mean time you are the one running to your DVR after work praying something else got resolved today!
That sums up Alpha...it wasn't contrived drama...it wasn't over the top ridiculous drama that you could NEVER see happening....it wasn't really an inst-love drama....and it wasn't a virgin meets billionaire love story. What it was was HOT...if there were words larger than capital size I would use them. This story is explicit, sensual, rough, raw, mind blowing and all without being raunchy. I have never listened to this author before but I think all my credits are about to be used!
Imagine you are a broke 26 year old, you are trying desperately to make ends meet, but they don't. You are working full time, you had to put your mother in a home due to her mental issues, and your little brother is in college and he NEEDS your help...then there are the aging grandparents in Florida barely getting by that you feel compelled to help, and there is you. You don't think about you much in this hell-hole you call life because you have to take care of others. That is the life of our leading lady Kyrie...her whole world changed when at 19 her father was murdered and she went from college sorority chick to sole provider and caregiver of her family. She has made her way through life the best way she can and life has kicked her at every chance. Jobs are scarce, and she just lost hers, but she is tough...she has to be. In one day she lost her job, got an eviction notice, her electricity was shut off and she was hungry....and then a check arrived for 10 thousand dollars. She had no choice but to cash it, and then another one came, and then another...and after 12 months of checks and 12 months of being able to finally make ends meet a large man, hat in hand is sent to "collect her" for his employer....the check writer. See these checks come with a string...a string she was terrified to lead to their source, and their source has a story of his own....see he's been watching Kyrie for years...he is obsessed with her...wants her...and now he owns her and she knows it.
*shudder* All I can say without giving the rest of it away is dang that was G-O-O-D, and the best part....it was ONE book, not three....not a cliffhanger....we get the end of the story. Now personally I would be okay with a book 2, but as for book 1 it left me panting for more and the need to re-listen right away. The narrator is up there with Jill Redcliff, her telling of the story was full of passion, full of emotion, and her male voice was....*shudder*...oh my! Gideon Cross is still number 1 but the race was close and I will look for books done by both her and this author again. Wow, just wow. Nice find!!!

Ho hum. The characters are boring, the story is hackneyed... Rather get Sylvia Day or Jodi Ellen Malpas

poor plot line. repetitive language. an erotic thriller with no frills. language use was substandard.
Where does Alpha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Alpha is a book that is up there with Fifty Shades of Grey, and Sylvia Day's The Crossfire series.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My Favourite character is Valentine Roth and the way he treats Kyrie.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Hot and mind blowing betrayal.

The story seemed contrived to begin with. ‘He’ was a domineering Mary-Sue, despite being written otherwise. The narration was ok but I’m pretty sure ‘He’ was narrated by a woman whom sounded like Carrie Fischer, which didn’t work and the rest of the characters sounded exactly alike, bar the maid.
But the most disappointing thing was the repetition of words and actions. It made the book seem to drag on. But that’s just my opinion!
