Lioness shifter Scarlett Milan hates that she wants her boss more than her next breath. All she thinks about is how his black-rimmed glasses and bow tie are sexier on him than any other man. But since he’s human, she’s afraid she could break him, even kill him, during a night of wild sex.
Knox Daniels, wimpy bean counter, has lusted after Scarlett since the moment he met her. The fact she’s his best friend’s little sister has stopped all dirty thoughts. Well, almost. After he breaks up with his girlfriend, getting his hands on Scarlett is the first thing on his to-do list. Being murdered was not.
A vicious attack almost kills Knox, but science comes to the rescue. Now he’s no longer the weak human Scarlett was afraid to touch. Actually, no one knows what he is except possessive, aggressive, and demanding she be his. They’ll have to team up to keep him alive while figuring out if he’s a deranged killer or just the most powerful alpha ever known.
Reader's Note: Hang on to your panties, folks. This is going to be quick, dirty and will have your ereader asking for a cigarette. As with all my books, adults only, please. That means if you're a prude and don't like hot sex or dirty talk, step away from the book. All others, I love you freaky people.
Never underestimate a Geek!
I wasn’t far into Alpha Geek when I started talking to the other girls, telling them I had found a book they would both love. It had a fun air to it all the way through with unashamedly totally over the top situations. Any moment, I was certain a voice over would announce, but wait, there’s more. Thank goodness it didn’t happen because I would have shrunk down and hidden fearful of the announcer continuing with details of what was next!
Fun is the word that keeps coming to mind when I want to describe why I enjoyed reading Alpha Geek. The reason I enjoyed it so much was due to the steamy moments (and boy, wait until you get to the ‘no one will see me’ scene!) and the way the story flowed effortlessly. There were situations I would usually roll my eyes at, but they amazingly remained at a level I was prepared to accept and kept on reading. It was a short story and I’m convinced this is the secret to why I didn’t get frustrated because had it stretched out any longer, I doubt I would have enjoyed it to the same extent.
The story is about Scarlett, a shifter in a society where shifters are a part of the community, and what happens when her lioness finds her boss, Knox a fascinating potential (but human) mate. Concerned her strength will end up hurting or killing Knox she attempts to keep a safe distance between them. What made this book so fun was the way situations turned around quickly without raising anything more out of me than a smirk.
For someone who loves a dark, suspenseful read, Alpha Geek was an entertaining way to add some light into my day. I was searching for an analogy to describe the difference between a book that gives me a book buzz and this, with the first thought being it was like popping candy chocolate – fun and frivolous and you still smile when you hit the candy popping even though you know it is going to happen any moment.
