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 t...more
I honestly have little to say about this book because nothing much really happened. 🙈 They meet. 👫 They date. 🍴 They have sex. 🔥 They fall in love. 💑 They meet the parents. ☑ His Mom is a bitch for five minutes. 😠 The end. 🔚 Throw in an underdeveloped mystery plot with a baddie you could see from a mile away, and two cute pets, and you basically have the entire plot. 👀 I mean, it was OK. 👍 It was sweet, but my tastes have changed as of late and I need a little more "meat" in my stories. 🍗 This ...more
I am a huge fan of Aurora Rose Reynolds especially after reading her Until Him/Her Series (highly recommend this series if you haven’t read it). So I was definitely looking forward to this new series How to Catch An Alpha.
Leah’s cat disappears into the empty house next door through an open window. Leah climbs through the window and is confronted with her new neighbor pointing a gun at her. Tyler just moved in and is surprised to see the half dressed woman standing in his home.
I love this cover and Aurora Rose Reynold’s writing, so picking up this audiobook was a no-brainer for me. This was a fun and easy read that I listened to in a day.
Leah meets Tyler when he moves in next door. They have a spark right away and become fast friends. Friends turns into so much more very quickly as they fall hard and fast. I don’t mind insta-love and for some reason, in ARR books it just works for me so well. I loved the romance aspect of this story as well as the famil ...more
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 tha ...more
I really enjoyed this sweet, heartfelt book that made me smile so big! Leah was so bright and cheerful, i couldn’t help but adore her (and her best friend Cassie). And Tyler…Sigh…He was delicious and simply perfect and just made for Leah. Their chemistry was undeniable and the steam was through the roof.
"You look amazing. You’re always beautiful and always have a way of stopping my breath and giving it back to me, but right now…" I shake my head. "Jesus, baby, you ...more
Tyler and Leah were extremely funny and cute together...and did I mention HOT, they were definitely HOT.
Tyler was everything one would look for in a book boyfriend... all delicious alpha goodness !!
Now I am gonna be honest here and say that I normally like a bit more angst in my story and a bit less sugary goodness, but in this case, it worked for me, especially because ...more

Catching Him is full of Aurora Rose Reynolds' usual sweetness and was a fun book to read. It was easy in that it didn't have a ton of drama or angst that overshadowed the romance between Leah and Tyler, and I really enjoyed that. There was some mystery thrown in with an unknown person coming after our main characters, but honestly I could have done without that. It didn't add anything to the story and I would have preferred the focus to h ...more
And then the next day she has a date with a guy who was her ex, which she don’t want to go but it was pre planned mostly by her mother so she has to go. We get the live details of that date ...more
The meeting between Tyler and Leah was hilarious, fun, cute and a bit sexy considering what Leah was not wearing. I love when a cute meet leads to a bit of embarrassment on the heroine’s part and that’s exactly what happens. But Tyler is that true alpha hero who knows what he wants ...more

So this book was everything I could have expected. Leah was an awesome leading lady. She was sweet and smart. She knew what she ...more
Tyler was a hot alpha though. He wanted Leah and there was not going to be any other option. He didn't force himself on her, just forced the proximity. Was always around, calling her baby and other endearments. She just went with it. Kind of a little off pu ...more
I'm a huge fan of Aurora Rose Reynolds and the stories she writes. While Catching Him was sealed up nicely for Leah and Tyler, I smiled and laughed throughout their story. Their meet cute was enough to keep me reading.
Leah has a sweet disposition but I also found her to be a very naive. The strong bonds she has with family and friends also made her extremely likeable. That being said she isn't afraid to use her voice when needed. Her grumpy cat is challenge but if it wasn't for this wa ...more
The story is super sweet, fun, and low on angst. If you’re looking for a quick fun read that’s hot and sweet, I highly recommend this book from one of my favorite authors.
What I Enjoyed Most:
The beginning was funny and cute. Super cute pets lead to a chance meeting between these two lovebirds. I particularly loved their pets. If only my fur baby was as obedient as Bruce. LOL
Every woman wants a man like Tyler! He’s hot, good in bed, and super duper sweet, bu ...more

I loved this book! It’s one of my favorites that I’ve read this year bec it has all the elements that I love in a good romance book.
The heroine is spunky, sweet, knows what she wants, is hardworking and is close to her family. The hero is alpha yummy with a very confident attitude but is still quite the gentleman. Their pets are cute and endearing. The secondary ...more
The hero in this – Tyler Duncan is a take charge alpha and the heroine Leah Emerson – sweet and kind. Tired of the type of mean she has found herself dating, she is now looking for a man who knows what he wants.
I really wish the author had provided dual POV from the get go, we don’t get Tyler’s POV until the 57% mark.
This little read is super low angst, and was an easy and light read, but honestly, I didn’t think it was anything special. Nice en ...more
I was practically gagging with how mushy this romance was and it made me feel gross at times, not gonna lie but I needed another fix of romance and this was a good appetizer. "Catching Him" was cute but a whole lot of nothing was going on until we hit the 80% where a mild conflict ensues (obviously not major) alongside the cringeworthy instant love they had going on. Not like I minded it much with this novel because I kind of expected it when going through the reviews but it woul ...more
I don’t know what I was expecting but I’m kinda underwhelmed. Unfortunately, this just wasn’t for me. There’s nothing wrong with the story, the characters are great and the plot was decent. It was just pretty average for me. There wasn’t anything necessarily special that stood out and I didn’t feel super connected with the book which is why it took me so long to get though it.
I’m sure heaps of others would adore this but I’m not really a huge fan of things happening so fast and havin ...more
I did enjoy Leah and Tyler’s romance. It was sweet and really made me smile. I love that Tyler made sure that Leah got to know him before he made his move. Leah wanted someone that showed her that they were interested and wasn’t playing games. Well, that’s exactly what she got from Tyler. The lack of games and back and for ...more
At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like this. It seemed like Tyler didn't want to move out of the friend zone. In the end, it was a really sweet romance with a nasty ex and potential nasty mother-in-law. Great epilogue.
Now does her bestie get a HEA with the hot detective? ...more
Catching Him fell flat.
The amount of times I had to come back to finishing this book was a chore.
The story was the most mundane boring story...like yawn. Everything was so...hmm... predictable?
I think the author did a great job and didn't leave unanswered questions or situations that didn't make sense! Which I liked it a lot and it was a great change since the last books from her left me with a mehhh feeling. The book had the usual recipe that this author use for her other books as well. But it was a sweet story! ...more
