I’ve decided to go a different direction than just your typical book review. My love for books drives my incessant need to read nonstop. I also find theatrics entertaining. Luckily I’ve found the perfect way to satisfy both. Each week I will pick one book trailer that catches my eye and read that book. I’ll then post the trailer along with a short review of the book.
There is much controversy on whether book trailers are worth the investment in the book industry. I’m not the person to give that answer, sorry. What I will say is this; I have bought books based on trailers in the past. A trailer posted on twitter catches my eye. I’m intrigued by the teaser and find myself following the buy link. Yep, it’s that simple.
For my first foray into the book trailer world and this type of review I decided to go with something familiar. One of my favorite self published authors released a book back in the summer called The Loneliest Alpha which I loved. That is today’s choice for Book Trailer Wednesday.
I just have to say this trailer is hot, a perfect pick for my first post.

A spin off of Ms. Grey’s Kategan Series this story takes place several weeks after book six. After the death of their alpha a fight for leadership is held. Though Gavin never really wanted the position he entered to save his baby brother’s life.
Gavin is a man that was scarred on the inside long before physical scars appeared. His loneliness for a mate pushes him to drastic measures. From the beginning Alicia’s strength and feisty nature attracts him. His own personal lodestone and the answer to his future happiness, if only he would take that final leap faith.
Alicia is a woman who has been hurt in the past. The lies of a man who claimed to love her caused her pack to treat her as an outcast. Her decision to interfere in pack business sets in motion changes in her life she was unprepared for. The mysterious man who clings to the shadows compels Alicia to learn his secrets. Her curiosity puts her in several situations that add a touch of humor to this story.
As the author mentions, this book is a true beauty and the beast love story. I really loved the twists she provided for one of my favorite fairytales. I expected sizzling hot and once again she did not disappoint. She kept me entertained from start to finish with her fast pace and great character development. Leaving me bemoaning the fact I had things to do in the real world that kept me from reaching for the book.
As usual, T.A. Grey gives us hints to several side stories that manage to whet the appetite making you want more. I for one can’t wait for the second book in the series. The biggest question I’m left to answer. Which of her new series do I like better? The easiest choice is to just buy them both I promise you will not be left disappointed.
I’ve always been a sucker for the brooding alpha, but this time he truly has good reason. His desire to stay hidden adds an accidental sensuousness to their encounters that was hot. It allowed for a connection that might not have been there with face to face encounters.
It holds a suspenseful theme as they try to uncover answers to several crimes that take place along the way. Leaving you guessing at who might be betraying their pack. Overall I give this book 4 hearts.
