Alpha by Jasinda Wilder Dual Review and Giveaway!



Meg's Review:

Alpha isn't ever the right word to describe this novel. I don't think you would find one in any dictionary. I suppose if we HAD to choose a few Sexy, Hot, Alpha, Love, Truth, Deals , well they would all qualify. Kyrie has gotten herself into a bit of trouble and a mysterious check start to appear monthly to save her. What else is there to do but save this life she has and cash these checks, Support her family and strive to live. The angst and palpable heat in this book is just unfounded. I don't like I have read a book that touched me this deeply in a long, long while. The Mystery? The hidden truths? It was Epic. I can't even find the words to describe it. Alpha I mean really? If that teaser doesn't do it for you I don't know what can. This book is for really anything. Erotic? You got it. Emotional? Definitely. Mystery? Oh heck yes! It is jammed packed with a plethora of reasons to read it. Spend your coffee money on something worth reading. Grab this book now.


Amy's Review:

This book right here ... whoa. Smoking hot, sexy does not even begin to cover it :) By far the hottest book I have read so far this year!!

Kyrie finds herself in a tough spot. Broke, alone and needing just ONE thing to fall into place for her. Mysterious checks that will help cover all of her expenses start to arrive and what is one to do?? Cash them of course, lol. Take a risk, a gamble, who knows what the cost will actually be. Knock, knock, knock ... time to pay up. Ohhhhhh boy, I held my breath and had an internal freak out.
The sexual awakening in this book is crazy. Without knowing who the mystery man is or what he looks like, his voice sets Kyrie on fire. Why did she cash those checks? What will she ultimately owe? Ahhhhhhhh such a perfect book. This book was a super quick read, lots of twists and turns to keep me entertained. I don't want to say much, because there are so many interesting things that happen here ... Please read this book, you will not be disappointed at all.
Alpha did me in. I love this book so much! Jasinda, as always, made my day. Character development was fantastic and I instantly fell in love with all of them. I would love more to this story, but also like the fact that my mind can run free and explore where the book left off.


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. Giveaway unnamed
