Newly-Minted Regional Alpha, Aeson Silverman hit the jackpot. Power, prestige, and wealth, he’s got everything a wolf-shifter could ask for.

Or so he thought…

Being the Alpha is not the playboy lifestyle he’d imagined.

Despite devastatingly good looks and an impressive wit, he can’t seem to get Emma MacBride, the hottie doctor from another pack, to give him the time of day

Three and a half
You would imagine that being made Alpha over a pack of wolves would be easy. Well when faced with your own family not to mention other Alpha's coming into your territory it's not exactly a walk in the park and that's exactly the problem that Ace is faced with. As an ally of the Olde Town pack he's been asked to host a summit to determine if scheming Alpha Leif should forfeit his life. Clearly Leif has those loyal to him but can Ace keep control over the proceedings? Dissent and

This is a thrilling, fast paced story that's an excellent mix of intrigue, action, suspense and romance. It will have your heart racing with excitement as the conspiracy builds and lives are lost. The author did a great job of combining the different storylines and characters from her other books, while still ensuring it is a stand-a-lone read that is just as exciting and understandable to new readers as it is to old. I loved the personalities in this story, but Emma is definitely my favourite, ...more

Really good

This was a really good book, there was a lot to it. I loved the twists and turns, the mystery to solve. I also liked how things went slower between the two falling for each other, in most other books it's instant everything. Just all around great read.

I haven't read any of the previous books in this series. So I am new to it and the author's writing. I was interested in the book because of the intrigue promised in the blurb. The romance part was just a bonus. This was an interesting take on wolves and I enjoyed it as a short read. Yes, it was a rather fast read!

The characters were inked a bit differently. The wolves weren't always full of alphaness. They had the right mix of human and animal traits. I actually loved that idea though I did hop

The writing is on point, Katie Salidas creates an interesting, entertaining, and unique story. The only thing that usually doesn't click with me is the characters; I usually find them annoying, but I enjoy the story and Katie Salidas' take on werewolves that I tend to overlook that I don't care for some of the characters. Being Alpha has some really great suspense and intrigue, and it's great to see a different wolf pack. Emma is the lead in this book, and I didn't really like her from the previ ...more

Emma is the doctor from the Olde Town Pack. After their battle with rival packs she is responsible for the care and evaluation of a captured Alpha who seems to have twisted skills of getting into other wolves minds. She is horrified by Leif and is glad when they take him to the council meeting for a trial.
Aeson is the new alpha of the Long tooth pack. He is enjoying the wealth and power and women his new position brings. However he has been chosen to host the council meeting and trial. This is

I loved this story! This was great to catch up with these characters again. This is part of the Olde Town Pack series but I haven't actually read the previous 2 books, I've read the Little Werewolf series. The series cross over each other but the books can be read as a standalone. I had no problem reading this book without having read the other Olde Town books, but I plan to, and while I had more enjoyment because I already knew some of the characters this can be read by itself. I really enjoyed ...more

I enjoyed this book. I've looked forward to another book from this author and this one was a good combination of some of her series. Aeson is the new alpha and with the title has come a multitude of headaches. Once he meets Emma, all he wants to do is impress her. There is a lot going on and Aeson has to keep his focus or he risks a lot more than his heart being broken.
I wasn't a huge fan of Emma. She was in love with someone who wasn't for her but also just kinda seemed fake. I loved the other

It was great how you can read this as a a stand alone even though it is the 3rd book in the series due to how the past story lines are touched on with enough info to know what has happened without going into too much detail to detract from the book. The characters are well developed and I like how you can connect with them as they also have times of doubt and vulnerability. I think the way Ace and Emma are attracted to each other but are completely hopeless on how to act with each other was grea ...more

My favorite book thus far in the Olde Town pack series. The other books in the series have been pretty sexy and this one is more of a mystery/suspense. The plot makes it work so well I love it! The chemistry between the two leads builds as the intrigue and action flow for a fantastic combination that I could not set down. Emma is my favorite character so far, strong, smart, and reeling from a broken heart as she tries to unleash her inner cougar. Young alpha, Ace has his hands full but manages t ...more

Suspense, mystery and romance.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Katie Salidas got it right--designing/writing all the characters, their personalities and attitudes so that all their reactions seemed realistic but did not spoil the building suspense. That suspense was almost a character itself--the mystery, the deceptions, the villainy were as much characters as were Leif, Emma, Regina, Brady, and the charming Tito. Emma's concerns over her growing feelings for the shifter Leif also contributed

I love this bridge between the Little Werewolf and Olde Town Pack series. It's like Game of Thrones for werewolves. There's so much going on within the pages of this book, I don't even know where to begin. There's the fallout from the failed overthrow of the Olde Town Pack, but when all's said and done, that's just the tip of the iceberg. With non-stop intrigue and action, the budding romance between Ace and Emma could have easily been overshadowed. Instead, it acted as a catalyst to bring the p ...more

The Perfect Book

I was very impressed once again qith this added book to the Old Town collection. It must be hard for an Alpha not to have a woman grovel at his feet. This is the perfect book that shows that that once in awhile love doesn't automatically happen.

I actually enjoyed a story where people find each other throughout the story, but with the war going on around them will they come together before it's too late. Come and enjoy this story with me, you won't regret it.

Until Next Time.... Ta

My new favorite wolf story!
Being Alpha is crazy good, suspenseful, & downright addictive!
Once I began I could not stop. Salidas has a way of doing that time & time again. Her stories contain the perfect balance of adrenaline pumping action, mystery, & unforgettable characters with the newest adding sizzling romance & suspense. Even the shady ones have you thinking about them long after its all said & done. I highly recommend this book!

First let me say that I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book, but it in no way influenced my feedback. I always leave an honest review.

I so enjoyed this story. I have not yet read the first 2 books, but I do have them now. It's kinda funny the way Emma puts the breaks on Aeson. Then add some psychos and it makes for a gr8 story.

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more, I recommend this read 5 Thumbs up.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved that it wasn't too easy to figure out who behind everything. The romance is slow and building. No insta-love here. I love that they didn't jump on each other and there is no conclusion to them yet. It leaves something for the next book to look forward to. The mystery may be solved but there is more to these characters that the readers can learn later. I also loved that past characters were part of the story as well.

Phenomenal! This is the third book of the Olde Town Pack Series and has all the things we like in a book: action, suspense, intrigue and romance. Being Alpha is a fast-paced paranormal romance that will take you on one hell of a ride. Highly recommended!

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. I love the continuation of the old town pack series with references to Giselle in the little werewolf. I fell immediately in love with both Ace and Emma and the rest of the pack. The book has so many plot twists and turns It kept me guessing the whole way through. Can't wait for more books from Katie Salidas!

Katie Salidas' "Being Alpha" is the third tale in the Olde Town Pack series. Such great storytelling! So many twists and turns. A great paranormal. Emma & Ace are both such complex characters. Lots of overarching stories throughout the series. I have no idea how Katie Salidas weaves such a complicated web, but it ensnared me for sure!

Good book

Entertaining to read,but with a whole lotta specific details weighed the whole storyline down! Too much info to keep the story interesting😕! Katie is a great writer and awesome storyteller 😄,but she definitely weighed this book down with toooo much info.

The writing is definitely on point. This was a thrilling tale that further introduced us to the Pack. Katie's take on werewolves is definitely unique and something that kept me reading page to page. A great paranormal read , with twists and turns that will keep you reading until the very end!
