Millie’s Alpha (Dante’s Wolves – Barbarian Mates, New Beginnings Book 1) by Lynnette Bernard #mf #review


Millie's Alpha

Millie Easton is a scientist who doesn’t follow orders—not when those orders tell her to abandon injured members of her team. During an emergency stop for fuel, she is witness to the horrors of a mining facility where she finds men who are considered barbarians because they can shift into wolves.

Alpha Dante DeForest and his men came to Abidem to mine crystals and ore. They lost their freedom the moment they proved themselves to be the perfect workforce. He mistrusts anyone who is not of his pack—until he meets the compassionate scientist who called to his soul. Her forbidden touch set them on a path to their destined mating no matter how much he fought it in order to protect her.

Threats from within the pack and outside worlds jeopardized their future, but love and destiny would not be denied. A life of happiness, love, and children would be theirs if Millie would take the chance and claim it. goodreads

Bernard has once again got a great start to a new series with this book.

One thing that I love about Bernard’s books is the massive amount of world building that is put into them.  Once I get started into the book, I am completely drawn into the world and culture that Bernard has built.

The drama and suspense that was put into this book was enough to keep me on the edge of my seat. I wanted to find out what was going to happen next, and how Millie was going to be able to overcome what was going on with her and her family.

Dante was a typical alpha wolf – and while I say typical, I don’t mean it in a bad way, but in a way that I knew what to expect with his character.  Granted, there were some small things that did make him stand out from other alphas, but overall he was a strong character that I did enjoy.

My chief complaint about this book was the fact that while this book was titled Millie’s Alpha, the book wasn’t solely about Millie and Dante.  Don’t get me wrong, I do understand with series that you are given background on the other couples for the upcoming books, but while reading this book, we were given so much information about the other couples already – who ended up mated to who, and some of the battles they were faced with, that while yes, I do plan on reading more into this series in the future, I feel like the shock and awe factor about what they are going to go through is already taken away from me.

Overall, this was still an enjoyable read for me and I will be sure to read more in the future from this series.
