Big Bad Alpha


I was a little disappointed in this story.  I love a good steamy romance novel but this one fell short for me.
Olivia is a waitress at a bar but she really wants to be a punk rock star. She and her band have signed up for the battle of the bands at the bar she works at because a high powered record CEO Cain is the guest judge. The winning band will also get a record deal with is label. The night of the concert Olivia decides to flaunt her assets to try to get an edge over the competition. Cain notices her and decides to give her his card and meet with her about cutting a demo of her song. The only catch is that she must be a solo act and leave out her bandmates.  Olivia was quick to throw her friends under the bus to get a demo done and to get Cain in bed. She lost my respect right there even though her friends seemed okay with it. Olivia and Cain seemed to make it a game to try to get each other in bed. It seemed more like a conquest than love.
Cain was also supposed to be an Alpha and while he seemed like one in the beginning in the fact that he was portrayed as a dominant but his character went downhill from there. He seemed more like a condescending jerk than an alpha to me.  
Another thing that turned me off of this book was the dirty talk. It seemed really forced and the book would have been better had some of it been left out.

Overall I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
