"Don't pick up this book expecting a darkly sweet,cutesy love story. This book will blast you out of your comfort zone and makeyou hate yourself for turning the page. But you will turn the page."
- Mark Carver, Author of The Age of Apollyon
"The book was very well crafted - the entire plotmesses with your moral sense of what is right and wrong, and has you rooting forwhat's 'wrong' the entire time. I would definitely recommend if you're in to this type ofgenre."
- Samantha Carney via Goodreads

You as the reader are immediately drawn to Rose as she is not well liked by anyone. Has very few friends and then has to deal with her mother and father not being around. This causes her a lot of problems because she feels that they don't love her or care for her as they should. Not to mention she was attacked by something in the woods when she was younger and now becomes a creature once a month.
Rose, through out the book wrestles with a lot of bad things. Yet, when Mr. Stone comes into her life, things change in such a dramatic way for Rose as she starts to want things for herself. Plus the fact that these two spend a lot of time is really interesting. The relationship starts off as her just being friendly and vice versa.
Yet things get mighty interesting between these two when they realize what they have an attraction to each other. This attraction is heightened when they realize their affliction or condition is what they both have. This makes them feel more connected as they realize that they need to keep everything on the down low.
Rose's life is much more complicated when her parents decided to finally get a divorce. In some ways this drives Rose to take much more drastic action with Mr. Stone. The love scene between Rose and Mr. Thomas Stone was very intense and riveting. I felt that the chemistry was so spot on. Yet there are so many fast moving things that happen after this, it was like oh no, oh yes. OH GOD No. These reactions are what keep me going in a book and make me want to read faster.
So many things happen that they are not what you expect would happen. Things are different for them now that both of their futures are not what you thought they would be at all. Yet Thomas Stone goes to jail and then escapes because of his condition. Rose finds out that there is a pack somewhere in Alaska thanks to her mother doing some research.
Rose and Thomas do get back together in the ending. Yet the ending left so much open for the next book in this series. I felt that this first book certainly packed a lot of things, but can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
Rating: 4.5 Hearts
By the end of the book I had made myself realise it was just because of the student/teacher relationship that gave me the creeps. In doing so, another realization dawned, she was almost 18. Old enough to know what and who she wants. That being the case, this was a very compelling read. I definitely loved the twists and turns at the end. Skillfully done, Kate. Very well written, great characters who are believable, conflicting emotions throughout the entire book. Fabulous. I literally couldn't put this down until I finished it. I loved that the paranormal element was thrown in at the end; At least the acknowledgement of werewolves anyway. Up until then, it was her monthly sickness. With the exception of the title, of course. At this point I'm hoping for a book 2, because I want to know more.
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
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.

A taboo relationship between Rose and her English teacher begins to blossom and although your fully aware that this relationship has only one ending that been one of doom you find yourself willing them together.
The time scale of the story is cleverly show as each chapter is a countdown to the next full moon. Hated by everybody and persecuted by her peers you begin to realize that all is not what it seem with Rose as she suffers an episode of “sickness” that follows a strict 21 day cycle.
The relationship between Rose and her teacher is written beautifully, the author builds up the sexual tension between the two, ensuring that Roses age and inexperience is not forgotten but also allowing her dark wild animalistic side to show through the more she relents to her natural instinct.
I was instantly pulled into this story and found it hard to put down once I had started, the author keeps you interested with the many twists and turns and then hits you with a twist at the end. Alpha Girl for me was an enjoyable take on the much loved Werewolf tales and a definite must read.
5 starts from me Kate and I look forward to read more of your work.
Firstly I did like the premise. I'm a sucker for a touch of the forbidden and for anything paranormal so this seemed to tick all the boxes. The problem was how rushed this felt, particularly at the end. The fast pace meant there was little authentic development of Rose and Tom's relationship. I did think that some of their interactions were working but in general it seemed like they just tumbled hastily into being a couple and it made it seem like this was all just a set up for things to come when there was potential for this to be a more engaging read in itself.
I also found myself disappointed with Rose as a character. She seemed perfect in the beginning. She was independent, witty and mature...all things that made her perfect for what I thought an alpha girl would be and for catching the attention of an older man. However as things went on she seemed to lose these things and she became more petulant and needy and I found myself losing respect for her. I really wish she'd stayed the strong character that fit the plot so much better. Overall this felt very YA (excluding the sexual content and language) because of Roses personality, despite it being specifically labelled otherwise.
Because of all that I'm still uncertain whether I'll be continuing with this series. I'm intrigued to know what happens next for the couple, but I'm reluctant to be left wanting more again. I recommend that anyone considering purchasing this think about if this stuff will bother them. As it was, I was able to finish without forcing myself...you'll have to make a judgement call with this one!
Would recommend this.
There are some great twists to it.
Do buy and read this book as it is awesome.
