REVIEW: The Alpha's Heart by RE Butler


Alpha wolf Acksel wakes up one morning in the bed of the one human who was kind to him in school. Now, ten years later, Brynn Mara is snuggled up at his side, smelling like passion and sweet dreams. Even though Acksel has declared that his pack members can mate with humans from now on, he knows that any woman he takes as his mate will have a target on her back. Especially if she’s a fragile human. Deciding it’s better to cut things off than string her along when there’s no hope for a relationship, he leaves without a word and ignores her.

But it doesn’t matter if Acksel acknowledges her or not, because their night of passion has left a permanent reminder of what happens when one drunk wolf forgets protection. Angry, banished wolves from his pack discover Brynn’s secret and decide to use her against Acksel. His worst fears have come true, and the only woman who ever touched his heart is now suffering because of his mistake.

I sometimes have a problem with shifter books because the lifestyle can be so different. I get that they’re different because of the animal inside, but does that mean it has to be so primitive? I love how this is answered in this book. Despite the harshness that’s sometimes present, this wolfy world has really come to grow on me (not that it needed to work very hard) and I enjoy it a lot.

I wondered how Acksel would redeem himself after his behavior in the beginning of the book, but redeem himself he did with affection and determination. I wondered how she would do in the pack, given the circumstances, and she asserted herself spectacularly – my favorite part of the book. Mal’s book is next and I very much look forward to reading it! I hope Mia gets a book too!

Bottom Line:

The Alpha's Heart was a fun and emotional read that left me wanting more in all the right ways. An awesome read in what’s looking like a great series!
