Title: Becoming Alpha (Alpha Girl #1)
Author: Aileen Erin
Goodreads Synopsis: Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.
But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.
Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into one of “them” and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.
When vampires attack St. Alibe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.
My Thoughts: Another book I started because of the Clean Sweep game I’m participating in on Goodreads. This book was free for the kindle on amazon (still is!) and I have to say I enjoyed it! It’s definitely an urban fantasy with the whole werewolf, vampires, and witches.
I don’t know what to say about this book without giving away parts but this was a fun read. This would be a great book to bite into when you are not sure what to pick up next, I found Tessa to be wonderful, she’s very stubborn and an easy person to connect with. It’s very high school but Aileen does a wonderful job layering in the supernatural aspect and even makes a few geeky references.
I also really enjoy the dynamics between all the characters and excited to learn more about them. I also love her description of vampires, they sound terrible and gross and nothing like the sparkly beautiful creatures we have grown accustom to.
I am in the middle of the second book now and can’t wait to see what happens next.
Side Note: I’m curious on if this would fall under an “Own Voices” book.
