What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Know what’s worse than being forced to marry your depraved, sadistic alpha?
Hiding his corpse.
Ten years after storms and seismic disasters ravaged the world, only one major forest remains intact in the United States, and my werewolf pack is responsible for keeping Heartland Forest for the wolves. Jacob Knight may have been a terrible alpha, but he kept the fae, vampires, and man-eating trolls from taking over Heartland. Day by day, they close in on us.
For two years, I’ve gotten away with murder, and it hasn’t been easy. I live a lie, and it’s eating me up inside. It’s a price I must pay to keep my secrets buried and my pack safe.
But nothing stays buried for long in Heartland Forest.
When Jacob’s three alpha brothers ride their motorcycles into town, claiming they want to rent a room in the apartment building I manage, I know they’re here for more than low rent and creaky pipes.
Do I have what it takes to take on three dirty alphas?
Thoughts on Dirty Alphas
The cover and the blurb almost feel like a bait n’ switch, but in a good way. I had the impression that this would be a naughty read, a guilty pleasure type. I enjoy those, certainly, but I have to be in the mood for one. This book landed in my KU queue, then I gave it back unread before seeing it again recently.
I decided to try it, and holy smokes am I glad I did! Yes, there is a physical aspect to this narrative, but it is so much more – there’s a real story here, and dang good writing. I would classify it a medium burn RH within a full PNR world. Somewhat dystopian and fully immersive, it grabs you and doesn’t let go. And there’s nothing ‘dirty’ about it.
- A real plot, deftly woven.
- Emotions are high and feel real.
- Mack. Love that Fae.
- Zeezee…. she’s a naughty little thing you can’t help but adore.
- I have questions. So many questions….
