Erin’s Review of A is for Alpha Male by Laurel Ulen Curtis

Posted November 13, 2013 by Erin in Reviews / 0 Comments


I’m Haley Whitfield, and I recently had the ingenious idea to enlist my mother, Allison, as my kick*ss sidekick and set out on a road trip.

This road trip wasn’t to be just any road trip, but a very special one indeed. An adventure with an acutely specific purpose– to find our other halves. The peanut butter to our jelly. The i to our Phone. The stripper to our pole.

If our romantic desires were a personal ad, they would read something like this.

** Two sassy women (Ages twenty-seven and forty-nine respectively–Ouch. Okay, ages twenty-seven and thirty–with nineteen years experience— respectively) seeking Alpha Males to love us with zeal and kiss us with skill. Gorgeous face and sexy, tattooed, hard body a must. If you aren’t a dangerous bad*ss with the x-rated skills and virility to match, don’t bother. Must be willing to protect us from danger, value our quirkiness, and keep your mouth shut when said quirkiness is what leads to said danger. Momma’s boys named Dan Smith need not apply.**

I know. It’s a bit wordy. In fact, it would probably cost a fortune. Luckily, we’re not ready for the personal ad. We’re not that desperate…yet.

This is my story.

The mother daughter duo take a road trip in hopes to find their very own version of Kristen Ashley’s alpha male.   I liked the relationship between mother and daughter.

“Haley. You have your crazy moments…well, a lot of crazy moments. But you are such a strong woman. Confident and classy, despite your sailor mouth, you always but always choose honesty over a lie. Whether that be when it comes to others or even just being honest with yourself. Fiercely protective of the people you love and loyal to a fault. I am so proud of the woman you are. I just wanted to make sure you knew that.”

The heroine Haley was very funny, I would have liked to see her softer side.  The Hero Dan was a mystery throughout most of the book and by the end I fell for him. I LOVED all the Kristen Ashley references. I am also a KA fanatic!!! Who doesnt want a Alpha man? And this is Haley’s journey to find one. A good in-between read.

“I’m telling you, badasses have cool names. Tatum Jackson. Raiden Miller. Kane Allen. This is what we need.”


I’d like a story about her brother Hunter!!! Now he sounds like the real Alpha of this story.
