Kayla the Bibliophile's Tour Stop: Jasinda Wilder's Alpha

Kayla the Bibliophile with Jack & Jasinda Wilder
at Austin Book Fest 3/2014

A man tending to assume a dominant or domineering role in social or professional situations.
A word that makes us romance bookaholics quiver with anticipation and springs to mind all sorts of naughty visions.
In the dictionary would have a picture of—oh wait! I can’t tell you…it’s part of the fun!

Oh Jasinda, Jasinda…you’ve written pure, delicious, unequivocal, breathtaking scenes that literally sent this girl tackling her husband.
And that showerhead? Didn’t stand a chance.
I sit here trying to write this, and flashbacks of…we’ll just call him “Alpha” from here on out…keep popping into my head and I can’t even think straight. Ok…pull it together, Kayla. Give the people what they want.

Let start with the plot:
Kyrie is SOL and can’t even make ends meet. Just when she’s about to give up and lose all hope, a check appears out of nowhere. A very LARGE check. Enough to pay all her bills and keep her afloat for a little while. She questions whether she should use the money or not, not knowing where it came from or what the consequences will be if she cashes it, but desperation wins out. And when she’s down to her last dollar, another check shows up, just like the last one.
The checks continue to come like clockwork every month. She still has no idea who’s been sending them to her.
Taken from book’s description:
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.

Yeah, if that doesn’t send goose bumps all over you, I don’t know what will.

The characters:

My favorite kinds.

It’s just like I told the author…

And then our main guy. Part of the fun of this book is the anticipation of learning his name and who he is, so I’m not gonna tell you! But what I will tell you is that he is delicious, sinfully gorgeous, a pure gentleman—when he needs to be—and…inventive…we’ll go with inventive, in and out of the sheets, hehe!

For a girl who feels she’s read just about everything—not even some of the “shocking” hardcore BDSM books make me even breath funny—Alpha was tremendously exciting and hot. I had to seriously force myself to put it down at times. A yummy new book boyfriend to add to the top of every girl’s list.
