Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aurora Rose Reynolds comes the first novel in the fun, sexy, and thrilling How to Catch an Alpha series.

Leah Emerson isn’t looking for a man - she’s looking for the right man. But her mother’s idea of a great catch leaves her cold, and she’s pretty sure her cocky, arrogant, and way too good-looking new neighbor isn’t the one either. If only her wayward cat would stop jumping through his window, she could get on with her life.

Tyler Duncan moved into town for a new job, not to fall in love. But he always goes after the things he wants in life with steadfast determination…and he wants Leah Emerson. He wants her smiles, he wants her touch, and he definitely wants her in bed.

Unfortunately, someone else wants Leah - in the worst way. Now Tyler’s on a mission to protect the woman he’s falling in love with while proving he’s worth falling for, and Leah must decide whether Tyler is a catch worth catching…

A fab story!

I was really enjoying this book until.....the awful male narrator. His voice sounds like he should be voice overing commercials. Thankfully he only voices about 3 chapters.

So sweet!

I did a re-read with the audiobook and the narrator was fantastic! I loved this just as much as I did the first time I read it.

This was filled with so much sugary goodness. It's low angst, funny with a protective alpha and a sweet heroine that you can't help but love. This is my favorite type of a light read. It's stress free but still delivers what I want in a book.

Tyler is a take charge alpha who knows what he wants and he wants Leah. Leah is a total sweetheart. She's the type of heroine that everyone just loves to be around. She has had some bad luck with past boyfriends and now she is taking her grandma's advice. No more chasing men. If they want her, they have to make a move and Tyler is the right man for the job.

We got so much couple time which I love to see in the books I read. There is also some really great side characters as well as some cute scenes with kids. I highly recommend this book, especially to readers who just want a fun, low angst read.

Catching Him

This one was so good. It was sweet and hot and sexy and that is just Tyler. Add in Leah who is totally great and so optimistic I found myself cheering them along. Definitely a perfect read or listen!

Amazeballs!!

I loved this book! It is full of laughter, some tears, suspense and a hella lot of steam. The narrators did a fantastic job and made the story so much better than just reading it.

Small town goodness!

This is my first book by Aurora Rose Reynolds, and it was just the perfect combination of small town romance and steamy scenes. I loved how the couple never doubted each other and the drama was outside their relationship. The narration was amazing, I loved the female narrator!

Southern Manners, Sweet & Fun

I purchased CH during a 2 for 1 Sale & enjoyed it. New author for me. Family, alpha guy with protective heart, humor, light romance. Bruce, the Golden Retriever, gave the book a nice touch. Satisfied.

sweet, sexy and funny

(Tyler & Leah): TRIGGERS: stalking, vandalism, fire. Leah has whodini for a cat, one who likes to make regular visits to her new neighbor's house. They bump heads when she's caught climbing into his window trying to get her cat back. The story starts off really funny with these two characters arguing back and forth over literally nothing. Until Tyler's dog is found by Leah, when she calls the number to find his owner, they are both shocked that he was found next door. The sweet thing is that they are basically brought together by their fur babies and it's hilarious. They have an amazing chemistry but still banter. Tyler wants her but he's not the only one. This other person is dangerous. Really good story. Loved all of the characters.

This book was cute but not all that exciting. I don't think I will continue with the series
