Review & Giveaway~ Alpha by Jasinda Wilder

Alpha by Jasinda Wilder


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.



Looking for top dog, sexy all male? 

Look no further! Jasinda Wilder has created the perfect Alpha in Alpha!
He's sexy, mysterious, & damn can he talk the panties right off of you!

When I picked up Alpha, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. What I got was what I was hoping for and more. This book was so well written you could just feel the sexual magnetism that was coming off of our Alpha. I adored the character Jasinda created for us, the strong sexy type. And if her previous works are any indication, you already know this one is going to be HOT! Times ten!

I adored who Kyrie was too, our heroine in this story. She was fiercely loyal, strong, and very proud. She stood beside what she believed in and when I tell you she didn't have a charmed and perfect life, which made her the strong woman she was, I feel like I may be underrating how horrible her life after her father's tragic murder truly was. 

Kyrie is left to fend for herself, her brother, and her loony mama. She tries to stay above water but continues to fail miserably. When she reaches wits end, she receives a once in a lifetime, or so she believes opportunity, and she takes it, owing her mysterious benefactor be damned!

Thus begins Kyrie's long affair with Mr. Dark, Dangerous and Mr. Very Alpha!!! When he comes calling for his payback, Kyrie can't say no, because he now owns her. GOD! Doesn't that just sound intense and sexy? Yes? Well seriously, then Alpha is just for you! 

Alpha to me was very different from the usually beautiful story Jasinda Wilder writes. It was full of angst, which isn't new to her, & sexual chemistry. It was made me want to read more & I prayed that maybe just maybe Kyrie & her sexy Alpha will get another book. Hint, hint, Jasinda! :)
