Becoming Alpha

Book 1, Alpha Girl

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


One stupid party. One stupid boy. One stupid kiss. And my life was virtually over.

Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with psychic visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.

But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.

Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into a shapeshifter and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.

When vampires attack St. Ailbe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.

Customer Reviews

Recommended by Mum and Daughter

We both loved this book- it is a bit chick lit (the boy/ girl thing, yawn) but it’s not too overt; no retching every time she starts to think about him, amen, and they don’t get their gear off or anything. Great plot and the writing is smooth and personally created (no auto write software here, I bet). WAITING for the sequel due out in May 2014 (I’ve already been on stalkerbook and checked lol). Very good first novel, hope she continues with the same consistency.

I loved the whole idea of this book, and in my opinion I do love supernatural but I found that this took a spin and changed the whole idea is it. For example the vampires they are not what anyone else would describe them and I would say that, that give this book some edge.
And I would say that Aileen Erin really did do something great with this book it truly is amazing, funny, energising and quite a romantic. I also found that with a lot of books they have some scenes that are quite erotic and not everyone like that kind of thing well at least I don’t, and I appreciate that she has gone with something that isn’t all about the romance, it has action and reading this I was excited and couldn’t stop reading.
This book is just amazing and so are the others in the series and I think that she should definitely continue with a lot more of Tessa and Dastein and even more of Meredith and Donovan.


The best book I've read in a while. Seriously was up past 3:00am, saying 'just one more chapter'. I love Tessa and her taste in music, and her witty sense of humour. Definitely recommend.
