"One stupid party. One stupid boy. One stupid kiss. And my life was virtually over." -Becoming Alpha
Aileen Erin is half-Irish, half-Mexican and 100% nerd-from Star Wars (prequels don’t count) to Star Trek (TNG FTW), she reads Quenya and some Sindarin, and has a severe fascination with the supernatural. Aileen has a BS in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She lives with her husband in Los Angeles, and spends her days doing her favorite things: reading books, creating worlds, and kicking bum.
Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with psychic 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 a shapeshifter and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.
A major theme in this book among others is betrayal, Tessa is betrayed by Dastein various times. When he turns her to a ware wolf, has another girlfriend, and lies to her. Although, they have hardships their love still flourishes.
Curiosity is ever evolving in this book. Once something is explain another question arises.
Romance, Tessa and Dasteins relationship continues throughout the book.
I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to read a twisted love story, however, it's basically a generic brand of Twilight. The online version of this book has 624 pages, this is the first book of a seven book series.
The books that follow are Avoiding Alpha, Alpha Divided, Bruja, Alpha Unleashed, Spattered Pack, and Being Alpha. The last two books haven't been released yet.
