Book exchanged for an honest review:Rose Goldman is not your popular girl at school thanks to her afflication. Rose doesn't have many friends if you count Estelle or Sadie but even then they don't help Rose out either. Home life is proving to be more and more difficult with her parents both cheating on each other and pretending nothing is wrong with Rose either. When a new teacher named Mr. Stone starts taking an interest in Rose, she begins to hope that things are finally turning around for her. For some unknown reason Rose is attracted to Mr. Stone yet it's obvious that the feeling is mutual. Can Mr. Stone finally break thru Rose's shell? Will Rose's parents actually be parents? Will Mr. Stone act on his attraction to Rose? Your answers await you in Alpha Girl. I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. It's definitely not your typical boy meets girl scenario which is kinda refreshing change at least for me. I really felt sorry for Rose and her treatment by others. Honestly couldn't they see how lonely she was but were too wrapped up in their own drama to spare a thought for her. Mr. Stone was wonderful in seeing thru Rose's walls to the person she truly was. I thought the author did a wonderful job telling this story. I look forward to more of this author's work.

First and foremost, I’d like to note that this book contains inappropriate subject matter for anyone under the age of seventeen. It explores the romantic relationship between a 17-year old high school student and her English teacher. There is a small but noticeable dose of foul language and a few mild sex scenes. Okay, now onto the good stuff. I absolutely adored this book. At first, it was a little immature and predictable. The story begins with Rose Goldman, our protagonist. She is living with the curse of the werewolf bite and hates it. She sees herself as a monster, a demon, and a predator. At the age of nine, she was bitten while on a hunting trip with her parents; and ever since then, she became a loner and her parents had drifted apart from her and each other. Everything changes once she meets her new English teacher, Mr. Stone. From the very beginning, there is a magnetic pull and attraction between the two. I felt a real connection between them. At first, their relationship is friendly and cordial; give or take a few glances into each others’ eyes. Then, slowly it begins to evolve into pure and lustful romance. Rose must now deal with two secrets; her curse and her forbidden love. I applaud the author for creating such a complex and lovable character in Rose. She is witty, smart, stubborn, beautiful, but most of all, she grows up to become an independent woman filled with passion and love. The best compliment I can attribute to this story is that I read it in 3 hours. I devoured it. It had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved the relationship between Rose and Mr. Stone and the struggles they have to overcome. The story was very predictable; except the twist ending. I admit I was taken by surprise. The story was well-paced as it spans about 6 months of time from start to finish. I recommend this novel to those who love paranormal romance with a young adult feel. All in all, I enjoyed the read and would definitely check out the sequels in the series.

Perhaps it was my fault for not reading the book summary, or maybe even the reviews, but I was completely thrown off by the teacher/student relationship. The book was decently written - there were some obvious grammatical/spelling errors, but that doesn't bother me too much. I felt better reading this book after she turned 18, and after that the action did seem to kick up a notch. Still...was weird reading about a 32 year old teacher going down on his 17 year old student.... call me crazy, but I'm just not diggin it.

This was an easy read, finished same day I bought it. It's an interesting start and I'm curious to see where it's going to head next. I agree with another reviewer about the female lead continuing to refer to the love interest as "Mr" during and after very intimate situations. The age difference doesn't bother me and duh she has to refer to him as Mr in front of others, but that's just too weird when in private and as her internal monologue (hopefully the author will tweak this little detail from here out).

Spoiler free The main reason I got Alpha Girl is because the cover is freaking beautiful. That and it was a free ebook on Amazon. I'm going to lie, it start out really bad. From her thinking how crazy it is that Mr. Stone drinks the same kinda of coffee as her to her not having any friends. And really it's no wonder she has no friends. She doesn't even try and she seems to dislike everyone. And the writing was sometimes just really cheesy. A walk home was a "journey". It was really just weird writing. But, as the book went on, I started to enjoy it. And by the end of the book, I was completely in love this the story. The whole teacher thing was... different. I still not sure how I feel about it. And I don't understand why dogs don't like Rose and Mr. Stone. They're both dogs, right? I had a lot of inner commentary though out reading Alpha Girl. From laughing at how insane some of the things Rose did to shaking my head. It's a lot like a a movie with a ton of mistakes but you love it anyway. One thing I truly didn't like was how much like Lupin from Harry Potter Mr. Stone was. That was my first thought about him was so much alike those two are. And Rose and Mr. Stone are a lot alike to Tonks and Lupin in many ways. One line in Alpha Girl is the exact line as in Harry Potter (as someone who has read the HP series ten times, I would know). The thing that put me over the top and made me give this book five was how Mr. Stone didn't brood. He didn't say he wasn't good enough and Rose should find someone better. He just was like, hey I love you. We'll make this work. And I truly loved that! I've read tons of books were the lead guy doesn't think he's good enough and all that other crap. That's what makes Alpha Girl stand out. Also, Alpha Girl is new adult. I thought it was YA so about half way into it I got a bit of a shock. Overall, Alpha Girl is a surprisingly awesome book. It's got a cool take on werewolves and actually really great characters.

I absolutely loved this book! The writing is flawlessly done and you can feel every emotion Rose goes through. Some things are a bit questionable with the story itself but it's obviously understood why the events happen. As an outsider myself, I found Rose very easy to relate to. I have to admit there were parts of this story that made me cry, and parts that made me laugh. This story is woven beautifully. The characters are unique in their personalities. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to the next installment. I wonder though if our Alpha Girl will ever find her maker. And if she does what will she do when confronted with the beast that made her as she is? I'm sure Kate has the answers to these and other surprises up her sleeve. I recommend this book to anyone, who like me, enjoys a good howl at the moon. I give Alpha Girl 5 of 5 paws and may the pack grow and prosper Reviewed by Cu'Anam Wolfspirit faebooks.co.uk Girls <3 Books Tours Around the Universe Book Tours LadyAmber's Book Tours I Am A Reader Not A Writer Blog Tours B3 Book Tours

I was on the blog tour for this book and after reading the excerpt, I had to go buy it! It was a quick read, and very enjoyable. I loved the characters, and the story was new. I have one small complaint, and only because it made me feel dirty...I didn't like Rose calling him "Mr. Stone" in intimate moments haha
