Alpha by Jasinda Wilder
Release Date: April 29, 2014
My rating: 4-stars
I am not sure what I expected with this book, but it wasn’t what I got!
Let me start with the first part of the book. The build-up to Kyrie being “collected” for her debt is pretty good. It gets you wondering. Your interest has been piqued. Once she is taken, the book turns a little.
Mr. Roth is a private man. He doesn’t do public appearances. He is a man of many “talents”. His empire has built on legal and not-so-legal ventures over the years. He has a connection to Kyrie that he is not ready for her to know. The idea of blind-folding her is a bit extreme, but fits his personality.
Kyrie has to earn getting the blindfold off. Both parties need to be able to trust one another before this happens. I expected her to have the blindfold on for much longer than she did. Then again, it would have made the book drag.
Once Mr. Roth lets the secret out about how he and Kyrie are connected, she does what anyone would do… she flees. I was actually expecting the secret to be held for much longer than it had. I still think it should have. I almost wanted her to find out herself.
I am not going to discuss what happens after Kyrie flees from Mr. Roth; that would be giving too much away.
If you like hot, steamy sex and lots of it, this is the book for you. It is not lacking in this department at all!
Overall, even though I expected things to play out differently than they did, this book is so well-written, one cannot help but to like it, if not love it! The main reason for 4-stars instead of 5-stars is because of the sex. Well, not the sex itself, but the amount of sex. I wanted to see a little more of a mental connection than just the sexual connection between these two characters.
