Review: Becoming Alpha by Aileen Erin

http://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Alpha-Girl-Book-ebook/dp/B00EQFUNSE     https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18242939-becoming-alpha
Synopsis:
Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.

But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.

Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into one of “them” and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.

When vampires attack St. Alibe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.
Review: Rating- 3.5
I want to love this book, I really do, but I can't. It was everything I love in a good shifter romance except the characters were stupid 95% of the time. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but it had a bit too much drama for my liking and I love soap operas.

Tessa complained about everything, and mind you, she had good reason. She was bitten, changed, forced into a different school, became insta-enemies with people, had a hot and cold guy claiming her, and a million other drama filled stuff. But seriously?! Did she really have to rub that in any time someone said they had it bad?

Dastien was just as stupid, but we didn't get much of him until the last 25% of the book so we didn't see much of his stupidity. For him finding his mate and wanting to claim her he sure did act stupid about it. He was never, ever around and when he was he was just brooding and glaring at other guys.

I'm done bashing, I really did like the it. Every page had something going on, some kind of drama to take care of. I LOVED the last few chapters when the characters finally embraced everything and became who they should have been in the beginning. The writing, the characters, the story, the drama felt right at the end and not forced for entertainment like the beginning felt.

Pick this up if you're ready for a girl power book. Tessa isn't letting herself be ordered around in the male dominant wolf world. She's going to stand up for herself, her beliefs, and she's not going to let anyone tell her what to do or what to chose. If you like drama, a page turner, a brooding mate who is hot and cold for a bit and then turns pretty hot at the end then this is the story for you.
