Author (eArc)



I’m Haley Whitfield, and I recently had the ingenious idea to enlist my mother, Allison, as my kick*ss sidekick and set out on a road trip.

This road trip wasn’t to be just any road trip, but a very special one indeed. An adventure with an acutely specific purpose-- to find our other halves. The peanut butter to our jelly. The i to our Phone. The stripper to our pole.

If our romantic desires were a personal ad, they would read something like this.

** Two sassy women (Ages twenty-seven and forty-nine respectively--Ouch. Okay, ages twenty-seven and thirty--with nineteen years experience-- respectively) seeking Alpha Males to love us with zeal and kiss us with skill. Gorgeous face and sexy, tattooed, hard body a must. If you aren’t a dangerous bad*ss with the x-rated skills and virility to match, don’t bother. Must be willing to protect us from danger, value our quirkiness, and keep your mouth shut when said quirkiness is what leads to said danger. Momma’s boys named Dan Smith need not apply.**

I know. It’s a bit wordy. In fact, it would probably cost a fortune. Luckily, we’re not ready for the personal ad. We’re not that desperate...yet.

This is my story.

Warning: Some explicit language and sexual content.

My Review:

A is for Alpha Male by Laurel Ulen Curtis was freakin' AMAZING!!! I'm so happy I got the chance to review this book. From the moment I looked at the book cover I knew that this book was going to be fantastic! It's rare my bookworm radar lets me down ;) It's my first time reading a novel by Laurel Ulen Curtis and it won't be my last! I love her writing style. This story is a total page turner. It's funny, romantic and sexy. 

In A is for Alpha Male we follow Haley and her mom.  Just like us, they are addicted to the alpha males they read about in books. Can you blame them? They are so intoxicating!! Hayley and her mom make a list of what they are looking for in a man. They come up with a very interesting list :) Once they write that list they decide to go on a road trip to find their Kristen Ashley alpha males (Yes, they are big Kristen Ashley fans) *Ahem* confession time ... Don't judge, eh! I have NEVER read a Kristen Ashley book :/ I know! I know! I'm crazy!!! I have heard so many amazing things about her books and now that I've read this book, which talks about those alpha males, I can't wait to read them! They are now at the top of my TBR list. I need to meet these sexy dirty talkers. Talking about dirty talkers ... Enters Danny Smith. He is freakin' delectable! Haley meets him at a bar in Alabama. He overhears Haley talk about her alpha male list and then *Boom* he becomes her BFF ... Tehehe! So what does a BFF do? He reads all of Kristen Ashley's books so he can understand ''The List''. After sharing an amazing day together, Haley has to get back on the road with her mom and she needs to leave Danny behind.  During the road trip, Danny calls every day to check on Haley and they soon develop an intense attraction. As days go buy and the road trip comes to an end, Haley realizes that she's fallen for Danny and that her heart rules over any list.

I absolutely LOVED this book!!! I had so much fund reading it. The relationship between Haley and her mom is just beautiful! Her mom is her best friend and confidant. Awww! They are so cute together!!! The book cover reflects what these two are all about. What you see is what you get ;) And, what about Danny?!!! The banter between Haley and Danny was HISTERICAL!!! I was LOL so many times while reading this book. These two are PERFECT for each other. It's like a match made in heaven. The phone conversations that these two had ... Eeeep! *Fan self* Danny sure knows how to start a fire ;) I did have a moment of WTH?!?!?! at the end of the book. It had a twist that I never saw coming and I was like ''Noooooo! This can't be happening?!?!?!?!'' :( It got a little serious for a moment, but then things went back to normal and I had a huge smile on my face by the end of the book.

Haley's internal monologue is HILARIOUS! The things she says ... LOL!!! OMG!!! That description of her ''time of the month'' ... I'm still laughing about that one! This book is so much fun and all the characters are lovable and charming. I can't wait to read Allison's book and Yessssss! Please do write a companion novel of Danny's POV :)

My Rating:

I give A is for Alpha Male by Laurel Ulen Curtis 4.5 flirtatious, charming, romantic, humorous stars! Add this book to your TBR list, you won't be disappointed!

It took me several minutes, my mind reeling about what a lucky lot in life I had gotten, but my breathing finally evened, and I fell asleep, my hand tucked gently into the one of the woman I wanted to be. -Haley (eArc location 832)

I want to live the worlds you lived when you read these books and know what you felt when you read them. I want to know you. And your mother daughter road trip proves that your books are the perfect place to start.''-Danny (eArc location 2048)
