Series: Alpha (book 1)
Author: Jasinda Wilder
Caution: This review contain spoilers.
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?
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?
It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.
I wanted to love this book. I tried and Tried and TRIED but still I feel like I just wasted my life. Roth is just a sex starved stalker. I can't even put into words how I feel about Kyrie. No, that's a lie. Kyrie is just stupid, S-T-U-P-I-D! Like really chick. You get a check in the mail, let your friend talk you into cashing it, and continue to cash all the ones that come after. Then a guy knocks on your door saying he has come to collect you, and YOU ACTUALLY GO! WTF! Can you tell yet how much I did NOT like this book.
Fast-forward, you get to this mystery guy's house, blindfolded and told that the situation is not about sex but you will beg for it. First off, why are you allowing someone to blindfold you and second WHY THE HELL are you in this man house!
Fast-forward, all you know is this man's name is Roth, still blindfold, and let him perform facetime, oral sex. CHICK GET REAL. Number one you are not about to put your face by my time and I don't know you. Number two DUDE I DON'T KNOW YOU! Fast-forward, you finally get to see Roth and he is drop dead sexy and you just want to drop your panties again. You did see me say again, right? Fast-forward, you finally find out some of Roth's past as to how it concerns you after you let him bang your brains out on the mirror. HERE IS THE SHOCKER!!! Roth is the person that killed you father. AND YOU ARE CONFUSED IF YOU STILL WANT TO BE WITH HIM?!
*mic dropped I can't take it anymore*
If you are looking for a story with NO storyline and sex on EVERY page, this is definitely the book for you. I gave Alpha two keys and sweltering heart because the book sucks but the sex scene are righteous.
