Alpha Knight is the second book in Renee’s Wolf Ridge High books. These books are a spinoff of the Alpha Badboys books that she and Lee Savino wrote. Instead of taking place in Tucson, they take place in a small town that is primarily wolves, named, interestingly enough, Wolf Ridge.
Here’s our story today. Bo is a senior at Wolf Ridge, he’s a member of the football team, and works in his uncle’s auto shop along with his older brother Winslow. Bo is one of the Alpha-holes at school, but he generally stays on the straight and narrow. Then we have Sloane. She lives in the next town over, the one that is generally a little richer and a lot snobbier. She’s new to AZ. Her father was arrested for embezzlement and sent to jail, and all of the money and possessions are gone now. The one thing that isn’t gone is the debt.
See, her dad was in with some mobsters, and they want the money from her. Of course, she doesn’t have it, but she’s going to do what she can to get it. So, she starts stealing cars. Of course, then she has to figure out how to get rid of the cars. Enter Winslow. Unlike his little brother, he’s not on the straight and narrow. In fact, he’s a right prick and has been up to no good before. But now, he’s going to help Sloane fence the cars. Which doesn’t work the way that she really wants it to. For one thing, Winslow ends up shot and missing and with her money. And for another, it ends up with Bo pretending to be her long-distance boyfriend come to visit. And with both of them pretty much at each other’s throats.
I think that Sloane was very resourceful. She kept trying to do what she could so that she could keep herself and her family, especially her little cousin. I don’t recommend turning to stealing cars and fencing them off, but I applaud her initiative. She could’ve just wallowed around throwing her hands up and giving up, but she used what talents she had and did what she could.
Bo is an asshole, but I don’t think that he was as huge an asshole as he could be. I think that he has a really good heart, and a huge protective streak. As a shifter, he may not necessarily plan on protecting humans, but he does have that streak there. I think that he’s way too charming for words, and he does charm Sloane’s aunt really well.
I wonder what Sloane’s aunt is going to think of some of the things that happened.
OK, that’s all I have to say about this today. Go check it out! Happy reading!
