Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world. Roth being Roth, this means missionary in Morocco, reverse cowgirl in Calcutta, bent over the bow of a houseboat in Hanoi, slow and sleepy on St. John. Anywhere and everywhere, in every conceivable position, and some I didn't know were possible.

Life was pretty incredible.

It may be just me, but this series is a big disappointment.

Here's my Peeves for this book - I guess I'm just going to rant for a while, so if that's not your thing...look someone elses review.

Wow!! BETA was INTENSE. The story takes over where ALPHA ends, grabs a hold of you, and won't let go. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next! Not only was it suspenseful and was HOT!!! HOT! I love Kyrie and Roth. Their journey is tested while their love and need for one another is never questioned.

Definitely read ALPHA first...then once you not pass go..READ BETA

Wow, what an unpredictable story this was! Beta was pure suspense from beginning to end that I never saw anything coming the way it did. When things unfolded throughout the story I was left feeling all kinds of shocked, heartbroken, delighted, relieved, content, and hot in the only exquisite way that Jasinda can delivers hot-romance. Indeed this was a very seductive story but it was also a very strong one. A story about love, endurance, and vengeance that may not be f

Jasinda Wilder flips the story unexpectedly in this suspenseful page turner designed to get your heart racing from the very beginning.

This story is not what you expect. It doesn’t go down the path you think it would. Jasinda Wilder manages to surprise me by flipping the story onto its back and it totally works. She flipped a trope in a way I didn’t expect and in a way that shed light on Roth’s behavior in Alpha. In fact, I enjoyed this book much more than its predecessor, which surprised me, giv

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Whatever you're thinking is going to happen in this book- forget it because it's probably wrong. Are you scared? You should be.

Jasinda shows us, once again, that she is a damn good writer. Not good- great. This book blew me away from start to finish.

I can easily say this was one of my favorite books from the Wilder World. It was packed full of suspense from chapter 1.

This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance

There was so much to know and love about this book and Jasinda Wilder stepped things up a notch with this one. In the first book we see the strong connection these two have and there is more than enough smexiness. They definitely explore things in their relationship. At the start of Beta, they are traveling all over the world and having a blast. But our heroine, Kyrie wakes up one morning and discovers Valentine is gone with a note with

Sooooo... A random sequel has popped out of nowhere! Didn't see that coming

Alpha sucked for me, even though the blurb was soooo promising it tanked.
It was only SEX and that too too much of it with NO story.

But I think I'll give this one a chance too and see how it goes...

“Yes, you do. I’m yours. I’m here with you. I’m doing this willingly. I’m here because I want to be. You’re inside me because this is what I want. Take me…. Take me, Valentine.”

This is a must read for any Wilder fan! As always Jasinda's words jump off the pages, pulling every possible emotion out of you. With Jasinda you will always get a beautifully written story and this one is no different. Jasinda has given us an edge of your seat read! Tipping the balance between fear and excitement, Beta,

Well hmmm where to begin with this one. I really liked it, it was crazy and intense. Have to think on it a little more....full review to come.

I will say that ending just can not be the ending....please. I want more time with these characters or even stories from the other side characters, for example Harris. That ending just made me sad:(

The story starts with Valentine and Kyrie (Alpha) traveling the world. Every morning she gives him her own unique wake up call but one morning in France she wakes up to an empty bed. Knowing there has to be something wrong and only four numbers she can think of, for help she calls Harris.

Meanwhile, Valentine is being held captive by his old boss/warlords deranged daughter and once girlfriend Gina.

Thanks to the author, I was allowed to read an ARC of this book. Let me just say that this book blew me away! It was totally not what I expected. I have read a good bit of Jasinda Wilder's work and this was different from all that I have read before. The hotness is definitely still there but this is a darker read. There is still a lot of love and loyalty in the book but you there are multiple dark situations that explore tougher subjects that may not be for everyone. If you can't handle reading ...more

I just can't .. This book ughhn . So effing thrilling, I almost died of excitement. So many twists, so much history, so much pain and so much love. Kyrie was so brave and so strong, I just love her and Valentine, he was a big sweetheart (my opinion). This book is MY FAVORITE. Alpha was an amazing start, an amazing start for an amazing journey, journey of love and pain. And I am glad I could be a part of that.

5 Star Review by Allison East

Take all the thoughts you had about this book- and throw it out the window- seriously. Whatever you were thinking was going to happen, walked out the door- pretty quickly. There is a disclaimer for a reason. ***This book contains sexual scenes and situations that may make some readers uncomfortable.

It didn’t make me uncomfortable, it did make me say WTF (torture and rape are classically written into romance novels usually). So it did make for a bit of a darker side t

Roth’s past demons came back to haunt him. He was taken while she was asleep and the only person Kyrie had to turn for help was Harris the ex Army Ranger/bodyguard/driver. Together, they formed a two person team to search and rescue Roth who was taken by an old associate/enemy.

After Roth was rescued, she wanted to send Kyrie away to safety but she wouldn’t listen. She wanted

Ahhhmazing, HOT, nail biting, thrilling, action packed read full of suspense from beginning to end. I could not put it down!

This is one of those reads that keep you up all night because as soon as you put it down it is running through your mind and the next thing you know you're picking it right back up because you must know what happens next.

In Alpha we were whisked away to a kinky world of Valentine Roth.

Jasinda has done it again. Beta takes us on a wild ride that leaves you grasping for more in the world of Roth and Kyrie.
Favorite Quote: "No one ever said my name the way she did. My last name, on her lips, during love like this, was a prayer, a whispered plea and a term of unfathomable endearment."

Life has been good for Roth and Kyrie. Until it isn't. The past always comes back calling even if your bought you tied up all your loose ends. Roth's past is

Beta by Jasinda Wilder is the sequel to Alpha. It is quite different from Alpha and came as a complete surprise. I was thoroughly hooked from the first paragraph until the very end. When I finished, I wanted more ! I cannot to see what happens next.

Beta is a much darker book than Alpha and cannot be read as stand alone novel. Alpha sets the perimeters for Beta. Beta is more of an erotic romantic suspense novel that delves into a darker subject matter. In good conscience I must warn readers t

Beta is bold, brilliant, bruising, and breathtaking. More than just a sequel, Beta is an edgy, original read that shatters expectations, pushes boundaries, and simply blows your mind.

I was not expecting this book. When I learned that Jasinda Wilder was releasing a sequel to Alpha, I just thought that it would be Alpha 2.0, another erotic romance with fairy tale elements. Well, it’s as if Jasinda read my mind, said “Fuck you, and your expectations!” — then proceeded to slay all my preconceived no

I’ve always loved Jasinda’s ability to write in a way that lasso’s your brain and takes you on a wild ride! I absolutely loved Alpha in all of its mysterious and sexy glory.

I must say though, this continuation is beyond what I was expecting (in a good way!!). Picture the intense, erotic relationship between Kyrie and Roth, multiply that times ten, add in a ton of crazy action packed scenes to this fast tracked plot and BAM! You’ve got yourself a story that will take over your brain and consume

Not to sound cliche, but this is DEFINITELY not your mamma's romance. If you're looking for something intense, fast-paced and erotic - something straight-up sexy, Beta is the book for you!

I was seriously geeking for this book the moment Alpha ended, and Jasinda Wilder graciously provided above and beyond my expectations. Talk about mind-boggling and freaking hot!

Valentine and Kyrie's relationship is still in its early stages, but their passion is explosive, all-consuming, and somewhat primal.

BETA was absolutely brilliant! My heart was racing throughout the entire book.

This is a continuation of Roth and Kyrie's story. Kyrie couldn't have been happier with her life until she awoke alone in the bed with nothing but a note that said "He belongs to me."

Jasinda takes you on a dark and twisted journey to discover just what happened to Roth. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, you are surprised again.

BETA is full of action, suspense, hot and steamy sex as well as dark an

I loved 'Alpha' by this author but at the time I believed it was a standalone so I wasn't looking for a next in series, luckily my friend spotted this book and let me know.
Since its been over a year since I finished 'Alpha' I decided to read it again before I started this one and I'm glad I did.
Now this book starts brilliantly, Kyrie and Roth are slowly touring the world, living in luxury and cementing their relationship, as we know from the blurb Kyrie wakes up one morning to discover Roth has

“When you live with someone, your relationship inevitably moves past the honeymoon, exploratory stage where each touch and kiss is new and thrilling. It becomes more intense in some ways, though. The newness fades, replaced by familiarity. You know how she’ll respond. You know, just by the way she looks at you, that she wants you. You don’t need the buildup, the kiss that moves into desperation, the slide of palm over skin that becomes a caress and then a frantic removal of clothes. You don’t always need the foreplay. You look at each other, and you know. You just know. You reach for each other, and you merge. Rhythm is instinctive. You breathe in synch. Your hips meet, hands find flesh, foreheads touch, eyes flutter and flicker and lock. You slide into her. You don’t need to look or guide yourself in, you just fit. You match. She lifts her hips just so, and you’re there, and she lets out a sweet sigh of love as you fill her, and then everything fades and you find your rhythm and your completion together, and you don’t need to say a word.” 1 likes
