Book Review - Reluctantly Alpha by Ruth Cardello (Free on Kindle Unlimited)

ABOUT THE BOOK


Connor Sutton never had a problem attracting women. Tall, blond, easy-going . . . all he had to do to get them into his bed was to stop saying no. He never wanted to be rich or famous, but when his sister married a billionaire, he became both. To fit into the Barrington clan, he had to make a lot of changes and although being rich is nice. . . all it takes to make him happy is a loaded pizza and a cold beer.

Until he meets Angelina Kroll and discovers what it’s like to want someone he can’t have. Then she’s all he can think about.

As a hardworking, single mother, the last thing Angelina is looking for is a fling with a movie star, especially gorgeous, broody Connor Sutton. She gave up believing in happily ever after a long time ago. When she’s unexpectedly fired, Connor offers her a job that’s impossible to refuse.

He’s not the man she thinks he is.

She’s not the woman she’d hoped to be.

They’ve both left behind more than they wanted to.

Will they discover fitting in doesn’t have to be all or nothing?

Can they be rich . . . and happy too?

REVIEW

Connor has been the source of a lot of comedic genius in the Barrington Series.  While he was often comic relief I was worried about how a book centered around him would turn out because he always felt like a one dimensional and somewhat dimwitted meathead.  I was pleasantly surprised to get into the head of Connor and find a sweet and self-conscious man trying to figure out his place in this new rich man's world.  Angelina is a less complex character that I felt could have been explored a little more but was likable and a good match for Connor.  The story was well-paced until the end when it somewhat abruptly ended.  In general, the story felt like it was missing conflict and I ultimately didn't enjoy it as well as the other stories in the series, but it was still a nice sweet romance that was worth reading if you've read the rest of the series.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers Lists for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stopping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story like of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like i know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
