Bored with a writing job, she really needs to complete Akala decides to check out Craiglist for a hook up. There amongst the badly written M4W post is a well written request for a mail order bride that for some strange reason she feels compelled to answer. When she meets Nashoba she finds the conversation stiff and things aren’t looking very promising.
The Alpha’s Mail Order Bride really belongs in my Books I Couldn’t Get Into list and will be added soon since I could only get through 69% of this really not so great and very… I can’t even come close to finding a diplomatic way of saying this story sucked monkey balls and for that I am sorry. The only redeeming part of this story was the date scavenger hunt date that Nashoba and Akala went on. The rest of the book was like being force fed liver and onions.
Nashoba is the Alpha of his werewolf tribe, however his tribe is in trouble. He must find a mate as soon as possible and she MUST be a human woman. As things get desperate he places an advert on Craigslist and is surprised when he finally gets a response.
Akala is no stranger to a thrill but she really had no idea what she was letting herself in for this time. Her curiosity got the better of her as she found herself answering an advert on Craigslist that she assumed was a fake however it is anything but that……
And so it is only when Akala arrives and meets the sexy Nashoba for the first time that she begins to realize that he is no ordinary man. She is about to discover why he and his tribe really want her and the truth might just kill her….

Just finished this one about forty minutes ago and really had to think about what to say because I am not crazy about writing negative reviews and although this won’t necessarily be negative it won’t be positive either. Kind of like this book.
I really like the story line and I had to feel for Hannah having the day from hell, I could feel that at the start of the book. But when she goes to the bar and meats Adam it starts to slide into blah, blah blah. Cas coming to save the day was anticlimactic but very sweet. In fact, the whole relationship between Cas and Hannah sweet from start to finish but there is just no WOW factor not even in the bedroom scenes.
We get to know the characters a bit in this book but not a whole lot and maybe that would help. Not to say I didn’t connect with them I did on some level, but they don’t fly out of the pages at you saying this is me, they word just words on a page, they are just sweet.
Ms. Jasmine might also consider re-editing this book as I found sever spots that needed editing, for example:
“There were a ton of other hot young women in the bar and yet he kept only been talking to her and buying her shots.”
“She let out a little gasp as she tried to pull away, but Adam’s held her tightly against the wall.”
Other than those the book wasn’t awful but it wasn’t great either. The story line was good but it was missing passion maybe I will find it in the sequels.
Hannah is a deliciously curvy bbw who is not loving life at the moment. She has been single for ages, hates her job and feels insecure about some recent weight gain due to comfort eating. A vicious circle…
All that is about to change when the handsome Cas enters her life. A sexy doctor who moonlights as a werewolf who simply can not get enough of her curves. Is this what she needs to make her life good again? Or is there danger lurking around the corner?
