Once Upon An Alpha

RATING: 3.5 Stars!

I own Second Circle, the hottest underground sex club in Texas. And ashard as it is, pun intended, I’ve learned better than to fuck with the playthings at my club. It only leads to trouble. But being twenty-seven, well-hung, and a millionaire, coupled with a brand of kink that makes most romance novels look like nursery rhymes, it’s a magnet for pussy.

The one exception to that rule seems to be the tight-assed reporter named Lola who joins Second Circle seeking answers about the girl who went missing from my club last year.

Her only objective is to solve a mystery, while mine is to fuck her senseless.

Good luck, pet, you’re going to need it.

Filthy Dirty Alpha is book 1 in a hot new series.

REVIEWERS NOTE: Filthy Dirty Alpha is the first book in the Filthy Dirty Alpha series and is an Adult, Erotic Romance, Mystery written by Grace Morgan. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through Once Upon An Alpha.

3.5 Sexy Stars!

The Review:
I enjoyed this read for the most part. It pulled me right in with an interesting beginning, it had steamy scenes with a hot alpha Dom and an intriguing heroine. But when I finished, I was left feeling incomplete. This read was good but it just didn’t leave a huge impression.

It was a short, interesting story that has a little bit of thrill, a bit more mystery and a pinch more sexy! But I felt like the story was lacking... but maybe that’s because there’s more to come.

Lola, in fear of losing her job as a reporter, knows she needs a good story if she’s going to escape the office downsizing and keep the job she loves so much. Hearing rumors of possible foul play of a girl who has gone missing, she decides to investigate the last place she was seen. Hoping to fake her way into Second Circle, a sex club that delivers most brands of kink to those who can afford it, she never expected to find something more profound at the club and she certainly never expected to be given an offer she couldn’t refuse. 

The offer? Thirty days of unfettered access to all things club related for her story in exchange for her complete submission. That's the offer Burke, owner of the club, has made. I loved this offer. He is on a self imposed dry spell but when Lola walks through his club doors, he can’t resist the pull to make her submit. I really enjoyed Burke. He’s an alpha Dom but he was also patient. And I liked how he made their scenes both playful and sexy. Lola knows he’s hiding something and she’s trying to get to the bottom of it without losing her heart in the process. When these two finally came together, they were smokin’ hot.

This is the first installment in the series and I loved the slow build in their time together. It wasn’t rushed and it was a nice change to all the insta-romances I’ve been reading lately. I also liked how Lola didn’t instantly fall into bed with Burke. She’s there for a reason and she knows that he could be one of two things. He could somehow be connected to the disappearance of the missing girl or he could be the one man she could absolutely fall for. Both of these outcomes terrify her so she’s on guard all the time using the basis of a story to erect walls.

There’s definitely something Burke isn’t saying and seeing his intensity and iron will slowly melt around Lola was fun. I really enjoyed their time together and the mystery surrounding the club goers was well done. 

I do wish there has been more to the story itself. We have the ground laid for a great read but this installment felt to short to really get a grip on what was happening. I didn’t feel like I got to know the characters well enough or have enough background on them to form an attachment.

And I wish there had been more spicy scenes. They are in a sex club, living above all the action but we only really see two scenes inside the sex club. I also wanted there to have been more intimacy between Burke and Lola before the ending of the book. Perhaps with all the installments read as one, that “want” will be satisfied but for now, I was very much intrigued but left feeling like I didn’t get a good grip on the story. I just wanted.. more.

The Wrap Up:
This read was definitely sexy. The writing was well crafted and it had enough potential that I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next installment. I’m interested in seeing how this plays out and how the mystery unfolds.
