Review: The Alpha's Hunger

Updated on July 9, 2015

How I got this book

First off I would life to say that this is not my typical genre or at least not completely. I am a big fan of supernatural, magic, fantasy, action, thriller, and sci-fi books, but romance is not really my genre. However I got a free digital copy of this book (The Alpha's Hunger was written by author Renee Rose) from Net Gallery in exchange for an honest unbiased review of this book. Given that I was getting this book for free I decided to give it a read based on the supernatural elements mixed in with the romance.

Review

So, I was expecting this book to be all fluffy romance and was happily surprised to find a real plot line with engaging characters. I was expecting a redo of twilight with werewolves instead of vampires, but these characters are so much more. Ashley is a person that many people can sympathize with; she is the everyday working woman trying to work her way up in the company. Yes one migraine bring her an new opportunity as Ben Stone personal assistant. What I truly enjoyed about Ashley as a character is that her personality does not revolve around the male lead. She is a strong woman with very real preferences that cause her to get swept up in Ben Stone. Ben Stone is also a strong character and his personality does not revolve around Ashley. Ben Stone starts to fall for Ashley because of who she is as a person and neither one of them suddenly becomes someone else when around the other. Together the two of them work to rescue Ashley's sister and save Ben's company.Renee Rose truly outdid herself with this novel and I am left hoping that she continues to write in the supernatural/paranormal genre. I truly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to all supernatural/paranormal romance readers.
