An Alpha's Path is an enjoyable paranormal romance by Carrie Ann Ryan.
At the age of twenty-five, Melanie Cross is a serious chemist with a PhD and ready to start her dream job. To celebrate, her best friend sets her up on a blind date with Kade Jamenson. In a single moment, Kade realizes that he's finally found his mate. Since it's a blind date and Melanie's also human, Kade is hesitant to share that he's actually a werewolf and the alpha's heir of his wolf pack.
Despite the instant attraction, Melanie doesn't believe in fate, mates, and especially not one-hundred-year-old werewolves.
With a main focus on Kade and Melanie's bedroom romance, there's a pleasant mix of drama and lighthearted moments. As Melanie is first exposed to werewolves and witches, as well as visits the den of the Redwood wolf pack, readers are able to join her as the real world branches towards the paranormal side.
Since this book is technically more like a novella, only a few key characters of the series are introduced, yet it provides a glimpse into the werewolf life as the first book in the Redwood Pack series. Also, it's a completed book series, yet various characters are included in the corresponding (and currently on-going) Talon Pack series.
An Alpha's Path is recommended and geared towards those who enjoy reading paranormal romances, particularly stories involving hero-worthy alpha werewolves.
Note: I received this book from the author, who provided reissued copies for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
