Becoming Alpha Aileen Erin read online review & book description:

One stupid party. One stupid boy. One stupid kiss. And my life was virtually over.

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.

When vampires attack St. Ailbe’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.

“This is absolutely one of the most amazing books of 2013! Paranormal YA at its best. It doesn’t matter if you’re an adult or Young Adult. You will love this one.”Paranormal Cravings Blog

  • I love this book!!!

    By jeremyl1980
    I really enjoyed Tessa and Dastien's story - there is something totally authentic and real and relatable about Tessa and you find that her accessibility really draws you into this kind of crazy world that she finds herself living in. The book is an incredible read - it is quick, funny, exciting, tense and full of great wit. I cannot wait for the next one in the series!!

  • Love these!!

    By JohnlockpokiSnarry
    I’ve been reading this series over and over again for three years, and it never gets old. Anytime I need a book to read but can’t afford a new one, I read this book again. I can’t get enough of this series. Erin writes a beautiful story with a plot that is different but still has those parts that make you love werewolf books. I would definitely recommend this series and this book to anyone. A small note though, if you can’t handle bad language, this book is probably not for you. Tessa cusses like a sailor. XD

    By Francis465
    Step into a world where paranormal is the norm. An amazing young adult book that will draw you in with a captivating storyline & characters that you will love or hate. I highly recommend this book.

    Had me hooked from the beginning!! I love Tessa!
  • Couldn’t put it down!

    By ShannonG86
    I didn’t think I’d be all into this story, but I thought I’d try it. Then I couldn’t put the darn thing down! When I did, all I did was think about the story, where it was going, how we can be a bit daft and not realize some obvious things in real life just like in the story. lol I really enjoyed the modern mix of were’s , brujas, and nasty vamps. Seems like the supernatual in Texas is becoming a favorite of mine. Enjoy!
  • HOOKED!! And loving it!

    Okay, to be honest I am not a fan of paranormal or science fiction stories generally. Since I rarely get enthralled or even more than just mildly interested in them I just read other genres. But I stumbled across this author and this introductory novel and something about it made me decide to give it a try. If I wasn't enjoying it then I didn't have to finish it. Yeah, right. Like a reading junkie like me who will peruse cereal boxes and bulk junk mail with an unwavering attention could ever leave a story unfinished. 😋 And I'm ECSTATIC that I decided to give this novel a chance!!! The story was presented from the perspective of Tessa, the main character and a kinda normal-ish human girl and her sudden introduction to a world she never even considered could be real...not too far from my own perspective. And I was whisked away and overwhelmed with her and her life-altering and confusing new life in a world she doesn't understand and struggles to accept. And it was a helluva ride!! I was hooked and emotionally, intellectually and fantasically invested in Tessa, this unbelievable yet totally relatable world where werewolves, vampires and witches have roamed and ruled for who-knows-how-many hundreds of years. Fortunately she and I both had the primal urge to know and understand the life that her beautiful and tortured new...MATE?!?!... was created from and the pack that's as much a part of who he is as the sleek and dangerous werewolf that lives and breathes just under the surface of his swoon-worthy skin and in his heart. The same heart that can't survive without Tessa. So, I don't care if you aren't a fan of the paranormal genre, got bored even just watching THE TWILIGHT movies or just prefer to immerse yourself in romance novels that take you away into a beautiful love story that doesn't really resemble anything you've personally experienced or witnessed. READ THIS STORY!!! Because you will find an exciting, dangerous, foreign new landscape that will give you a heartbreaking, heart racing, heartwarming romance that will vicariously give you the unexpected, uncontrollable blushes, rushes and confusion of a discovering and exploring a true soulmate yet young and first (and only) love... and first loves are the best!! Especially when you know that it's forever! (Gulp...😧...yeah, imagine how you would've felt at 17 and have declared for you that this was a fact you couldn't escape from despite that's it's with a achingly gorgeous guy that's sooo outta your league and is responsible for the total upheaval of your life as you knew it and sometimes doesn't seem to be that into you. And maybe wasn't as blown away by that one shared kiss as you were...but obviously he's had plenty of other kisses with stunning partners than the only one you have had so maybe that's just how first kisses were for everyone...or was it?!) READ THIS NOW and find out!! Intrigue, danger, mystery, paranormal creatures that you only ever thought existed in your nightmares and Hollywood films, friendship and life all await you just inside that first page...and it's a ride you will find yourself addicted to from the adrenaline rushing highs, insecure and fearful lows and the raw power of fighting to defend your friends, family and the only person who can make you whole, and the strength and power that comes with accepting who you are and the freedom of learning that you don't have to care what other people really think of you when you decide to stand up and be yourself without shame!!!
