BOOK REVIEW for "Not Her Alpha (Not This, #5)" by Annie Nicholas

*****(5) out of 5 Stars! 

99¢ Sale until 2/2/2019.
 (Then it goes to its $3.99 regular price.)


Chris Jenkins, alpha werewolf, wants the woman who destroyed his life dead. When he finds her, instead of facing a criminal mastermind, he discovers her imprisoned and beaten by her own family. A victim. So, he rescues her. To make things worse, her soul is bound to a grimoire of black magic and he volunteers his pack to protect the book from falling into the wrong hands. Now, the woman he fantasized killing has to live with him. It’s the only way to keep his city safe.


Jade Ellington dreams of finding her Prince Charming, then the big bad wolf blows her jail door down. In that moment, she changes her mind. Chris is everything a woman could want. Sexy and strong, and did she mention he can cook? But she’s responsible for all his heartache and she’s nothing to him but a burden. How can she compete with the beautiful shifter women who surround him? Like all the time.

Then a thief invades the pack den and steals her grimoire. The one holding her soul hostage. The one Chris swore to keep safe. Without the book, she’ll die in days. It’s a race against time, sexual frustration, and dragons.


This is my favorite book of the series so far!  Many elements of prior volumes come into play in this episode, and a lot of things start to fall into place.  

Jade is still a delightful character, the more we get to know her.  And I was completely amazed at how very much I liked Chris; I hated him in Not Her Dragon.  But, much as with his feelings toward Jade at the start of all this, we learn a lot more about him and how he thinks.  He's really just a good guy trying to do the best he can be his pack and everyone else around him.  

Watching these two grow closer together, then finally acknowledge and embrace their attraction, was darling.  They definitely had a lot of issues to deal with, trying to recover the grimoire and save Jade's life, while dealing with various repucussions from that endeavor.  Ultimately, things finally do turn in their favor, but not after much angst and a huge sacrifice.  

Once again, we get to see various members of the shifter clan that we've met in prior editions.  I did not like Betty this time around, and Beth is once again a trouble-maker who can't keep her mouth shut.  But many of the other characters are a delight, and it's fun to catch-up with them.  

I hope there are additional volumes in the series, because I am really enjoying these!
I received a free eBook copy of this title from the author, 
and have willingly provided an honest review.
