Goodreads review: “Romancing the Alpha (True Mates #3)” by Alicia Montgomery

Yeah, sometimes I’ll just rip a review straight off of what I wrote over at Goodreads. It happens.

As a fan of Montgomery’s “True Mates” series, I couldn’t wait to see how Alpha leaders Grant and Frankie would get together. And while this has the same blend of charm, humor, suspense and steam, I wasn’t quite as pulled in as I usually am. Maybe the so-so editing, perhaps the feeling like these two were almost pushed together to make an Alpha match.

Not to say that the story wasn’t absolutely enjoyable – from start to finish Montgomery manages to keep her main story in focus while still hinting at things to come for other characters – it’s just that Grant doesn’t do it for me. Perhaps because he’s the boss man, and has been the guy that everyone has to go to in earlier (and later – ahem I started the series with a later story) books? Maybe.

I absolutely adore her side characters, especially Frankie’s family (Nonna FTW!) There’s no doubt I’ll be reading this book again (and probably again…and again…) along with the rest of this series. But this book gets a slight bump-down because while I was pulled in, I wasn’t all-in. As Frankie might say, Capiche?

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

[FULL DISCLOSURE: I received an ARC – Advance Reader Copy – of this book in exchange for an honest review.  That didn’t sway my review though.  I received no other compensation.]
