I just finished ALPHA by Jasinda Wilder and OMW!! I may not recover! You think you know what your getting when you decide to pick up this book, but you get more than you bargained for.

We meet Kyrie who is having one of the worst days ever. She loses her job, gets sexually propositioned by her ex-boss, bills are due and piling up, and she gets home to an eviction notice. When she sees an innocent envelope with her name on it she opens it to find a check for ten thousand dollars and in the memo line one word: YOU. Kyrie is shocked and scared as to what to do with this anonymous check.. and come on, no matter what we say if we get that kind of cash in the mail we would be freaked too! After conferring with her best bud Layla she cashes it. Then she cashes the next check for another 10 thousand when it comes the next month with BELONG written on the memo line, And the next months check with TO ME written in the memo line.YOU BELONG TO ME, in real life that would scare the hell out of me but in THIS book it is hot especially after meeting HIM and knowing what is store for her. For the next year she cashes these anonymous checks knowing that some day she will have to pay her benefactor back in some way. 120,000 dollars later it is time and she is collected.

Her benefactor is mysterious, uber private, and quite a bit paranoid. He is distrusting of everyone, but he wants Kyrie and has done for a very long time. He brings her to his home in New York, brings her into his world, and slowly lets her slip into his personal life. He is perfection, a giant god of a man, and he wants to make Kyrie beg for him. These scenes are panty scorchers!! He pushes her to the edge of her endurance and his own.

With only the sound of his voice to go by she is utterly enthralled, when she sees the whole package she nearly combusts. He makes her crazy with desire and when he touches her she goes up in flames. He has never been with anyone who affects him the way she does and he has never let anyone into his life like he has Kyrie, she has always been special. One look and he is hard as granite, one touch and he could lose his control. Only Kyrie can do this, she will always belong to him.

But his secret must come out

What happens when the perfect man finds his perfect woman and he must come clean about his past knowing he will most likely lose her?

This book was just SO good!! It was erotic yes (honestly it was hot enough I wanted to call the fire dept. to cool me down!), but the hard decisions and the emotional turmoil was the perfect balance. No woman could help read this and wish for a man like this of their own! I say again I am ruined! I don't know if there will be a second book to this or not but if there is I will be buying it!

I really dont understand all the five stars for this book. I wish i didnt pay $5.99 for it thats for sure. Starting from the time kyrie met valentine til almost the end of this book all it was about was sex. Hot and steamy sex with no story attached at all. And dont get me started on the blindfold chapters, to me that was corny and just dumb. But at the very end of the book the author actually started to tell a story that was alot better than most of the book. Dont get me wrong, i love a book with lots of hot and steamy parts in it for sure. But i also like a book that tells a story not just mind blowing sex.

    Execution lacking

    Liked the concept, really disappointed with the execution of the story. It also used inaccurate references to bdsm.

    Thumbs down!!

    This book started off interesting, but didnt hold my attention enough to make it through the overly discriptive sex scene, or the blaring story inconsistencies. The character curses way to much, I didnt finish the book. To bad there are no refunds..

    intriguing and worthwhile

    Wasn't sure at foirst where we were going but soon entered into the lead character's thoughts.. Believable and most intriguing as the plot developed, even though it is fantasy. Also it is good to see an author write well with attention to grammar and vocabulary... An easy and so enjoyable a read.

    This was a poorly written 50 shades knock off.  I haven't rolled

    This was a poorly written 50 shades knock off.  I haven't rolled my eyes reading a book as often as I did with this one.  I mean literally every single page.  It was sooooo corny and unrealistic and I never got into the characters at all.  I will say that some of the sex scenes were pretty good but the story development was awful and I found myself skipping entire pages.  It seriously made 50 Shades look like Shakespeare.

    Plot was UN-realistic

    Far fetched plot but interesting sex scenes.

    Sex, Sex and More Sex

    Story line here is easy to guess and the major potion of the novel is graphic unrealistic sex. The author does take 20 pages at the end of the book to tie up the story that I had already guessed the ending to and just was just more about the sex than the story.
