Review for Alpha Girl

Today my post consist of a review for Alpha girl, a paranormal romance novel by author Kate Bloomfield.


Date Published: April 1, 2013

Best-selling and independent Australian author, Kate Bloomfield, has successfully made a name for herself in the world of self-publishing at just twenty-three years old. Her newest and most precious book yet, Alpha Girl, is a controversial Paranormal Romance between a student and teacher. A book not for those easily offended.

Seventeen year old Rose Goldman is highly unpopular in the little town of Halfway. Ever since the 'attack' when she was a girl, people and animals have been afraid of her. She gets bullied in school, and called 'wet dog' because of the way she smells, despite being extremely hygienic. However, life takes a turn when a new teacher starts at Halfway High. Mr. Stone, the quirky and charismatic English teacher is twice Rose's age, but she feels an unexplainable pull towards him from day one. Despite her better judgement, Rose pursues a friendship with Mr. Stone, who seems unable to stay away from her.
What is pulling this unlikely pair together?
 
My Review:

Thrilling, moving, and stimulating. That is the best way to describes Alpha Girl for me.
I love werewolves. Have even written stories about them, but this one really surprised me. It took me on a joyride, literally. By the third chapter I thought I had the storyline figured out only to realize right away I was very wrong. Had not even come close to figuring out what was going on.

The relationship between the characters was different, but in a way it worked out well. There were times in which I was scratching my head and going, “What is his problem?” but then Mr. Stone would do something that made me think, “Awww, that’s so sweet.” So yes, I had my emotional ups and downs when it came to this story but I enjoy that. I love it when a book keeps me guessing, and interested in what happens next.

Overall, I give it a two thumbs up!
