These books are so good . The stories so addictive and the characters are truly wonderful.
I’ve read all Alicia’s books now and can tell you honestly that no one writes them like she does .

Alpha Ascending is the third book in the True Mates Generations series.

Lucas is Grant and Frankie’s son
And boy is he an Alpha to be reckoned with.
With the attitude of his father and the heart of his mother, he falls for Sofia heavily, now he just needs to convince her .

Sofia is an officer with the NYP

Another great story in the series. I loved both characters and didn't want the book to end.
Looking forward to the next one.

The True Mates Generations Series is back with Lucas’s book.
Lucas Anderson is the next Alpha of New York and CEO of the Fenrir Corporation. Sophia Selinofoto is a human detective of the NYPD.
Parts of this story coincided with book 2 which is Lucas’s twin sister’s book so you get a little bit of a view of what happened in those scenes from his point of view which is cool.
Lucas is unlike the other alpha’s in that he changed at a young a

I really enjoyed this story. It pulled me in from beginning to end. I really liked how it connected to the previous book which was about his twin. This book can be read as a standalone but if you've the previous story you knew that something was going on with Lucas. He mentioned very little to his twin, Adrianna in her story so I really enjoyed the fact that this one runs parallel to that. It does not give you all the details to Adrianna's story either but it feels in the blanks. It was very cle ...more

I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

I had some initial reservations about this book before reading. After reading Astrid’s and Adrianna’s stories, I was concerned this one might not live up to the exceptional standard I have come to expect of Mrs. Montgomery’s books in part because I was unsure that Sofia’s character would mesh well with Lucas’s and, also, I have SO MANY favorite characters from this author’s books that I felt surely it was time I ran across a “dud” but,

Very enjoyable read for the most part.
This story flows alongside timewise with book two, this made it entertaining.
Loved Sofia and that she was coping in such a toxic male dominated society. Standing up for justice for those poor women, against her own despicable partner and being abused by the other officers stank.
I just found Sofia too accepting of her pending death on both occasions this happened. She is a trained officer and should/could have attempted something rather than just closing her

Wolf shifter Lucas Anderson hates humans every since he and his twin sister got kidnapped years ago. He only dated shifters. They were at their bar in their special room when the mages attacked and He walked out of the room acting strange in front of Detective Sofia Se!knight's because of a call. She believes in putting documents away for their crimes. A murder investigation leads her straight to CEO billionaire Lucas Anderson. The attraction with so strong that they can't seem to fight it or st ...more

To be honest, I was not as excited about Lucas and Sofia. Mostly because there were other characters I was more excited about. Yes, I still have hope that Cross and Deedee get together. Although, I am starting to think that Montgomery is saving Cross for the end like she did with Daric.
Plus, both Lucas and Sofia seemed to have so much anger and issues to work through. I was afraid it would feel like a fight the whole way and not in a good way. I needn't have worried. Montgomery made that work fo

Fantastic romance with the Alpha and his feisty detective!

I enjoyed watching Lucas realize that his biggest obstacle to finding true love was himself. Sofia's his perfect match, regardless of their differences, and their romance showed how important trust is to a relationship.

Set in the larger True Mates world, this standalone thrusts us right into the middle of the battle between the Lycans and the Mages. Filled with excitement, betrayal, and heartbreaking secrets, this story was immediately c

The Alpha Rises!!!

Aww Lucas, Lucas , Lucas!! I was so very happy to learn that Lucas’s True Mate is a human!! Sofia is a strong passionate fierce woman who instinctively knows that there is something special about Lucas even though she’s human!! It’s amazing to see an alpha fall to his knees and submit to anyone but seeing how devoted he is to Sofia it is like she is the sun and he revolves around her!! That is what I love most about reading Alicia Montgomery’s books is the instant sizzle that e

This series just keep getting better and better. I will say that I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. This was definitely not a Insta-love story. Lucas and Sofia even though they were true mates had to work for their HEA. After reading about Lucas twin Adrianna's and their friend Astrid's stories, I wasn't sure that Sofia's character would mesh well into Lucas's world or with Lucas. I mean Lucas and Sofia seemed to have so much anger and issues to work through. I was afraid they would fi ...more

This is what was happening to Lucas during Adrianna's drama in Claiming the Alpha. Lucas is once again having to relive some unpleasant periods in his life. One of the twins kidnappers is found dead and he's a person of interest. Sophia, the detective, becomes obsessed with Lucas and wants to take him down. Once she gets to know him, she is ready to fight with everything she's got to save him. The mages are pulling out the big guns and things get worse. One thing I didn't like was Lucas' rant to ...more

I cannot say enough good things about this book. I physically lost sleep because I could not put it down. There was so much going on. The characters, both new and old, were amazing. Every page was full of action and suspense. The heat was on high and the love was deep. An exciting, fast paced read. With each book in this series, Ms. Montgomery continues to develop the True Mates world. This was in my top 3 for the year, and I read a lot. So, about the ending. There was a HEA, no cliffhanger.

Wow!!!!! Suspenseful! Wonderful read. I received the ARC copy today and couldn’t put it down!! I want to read it again! New people, people I know, back stories, action packed. I think this is my new favorite of the original series and the new generation series. It’s just beginning and it ends with a bang! I loved this book. Set us up for continuing this saga. I think you’ll love it too.

Soon to be Alpha of New York Lucas is dealing with more than his fair share of drama. Detective Sofia Selinofoto is driven, intelligent, determined and principled. Qualities though admirable, have caused her some problems at work. Lucas and Sofia are on a crash course with fate when aspects of his life intersect with her suspicious death case. Their burgeoning relationship is antagonistic, but is no match for their attraction to one another. I've enjoyed each of the True Mate's books, and look f ...more

These Lycans can never just have an easy life, huh? Lucas is about to be the new Alpha of New York, and of COURSE he's drawn to a detective who is investigating him. Even though she's human and he doesn't like humans. These two don't just have one hurdle, but many. Sofia is nothing like the girls he's used to, she's tough but down to earth.

This is full of action, suspense, CHAOS. Just when one issue settles down, another pops up. And in true Alicia style, she barely gives you the happy ever afte

I have never been so hangover as with this book. I wanna go back and read the series and then read this book again. It brought me back to why I love these characters and storylines. It's easy to read but it keeps you pinned to a place until you've finished. Then you just wanna go back and read it all over again. Like I said before, this series is amazing and no matter what story comes next I will probably love it as much as the ones before it.

True Mates

This is the third book in the second generation of true Mates, and happens concurrently with book 2. The hero is a success in business and as alpha, but he seems to have really lost his way in his personal life. The heroine is battling the consequences of doing the right thing in her profession, and has no personal life. I felt she was special from the first, but it took him a while to catch on. Eventually, their HEA is assured, and all we are left to wonder is what are the bad guys up

This is the third book of the True Mates- next generation stories. Initially I could not work out how Lucas who hates humans would fall for Sofia , a human detective. He can’t help it - it’s the pull of the true mates. 😍I loved how they both smelt different things when they were around each other. In this story, the mages are still a threat but there are threats to Sofia from her job and from Lucas and his bloodlust although I love how she deals with the latter and of course, their chemistry is ...more

Lucas was raised knowing he would some day be the Alpha of New York.
Sofia knew she always wanted to be a Police Woman like her mother.
Lucas and his sister were kidnapped by the Mages 20 years ago. Lucas hates humans..Wants nothing to do with them.
When Sofia comes looking for Lucas, thinking he has something to do with a murder of one of the men responsible for the kidnapping...Sparks fly.
Great addition to the True Mates series. Hopefully many more to come

He despises anything having to do with humans and he definitely doesn't trust them. When a feisty detective comes looking for him for a murder investigation sparks fly! She is independent, determined and takes no mess. Will these two figure out that fate has a plan for them and their lives will forever be entwined or will they declare all out war on each other? I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Lucas Anderson is preparing to become Alpha of the New York clan but he seems to be loosing control of his wolf. Sofia Selinofoto is a NYPD detective with a well developed sense of justice and a knack for details. This is their story and how a chance encounter can cause changes that will have the power to change very set ways. Mages are still refusing to let go of the Lycans and now have their eyes set on Lucas. Fate still refuses to be denied and True Mates magic continues alive.

I’m really enjoying this new series based on the previous one.

The hints of his story from the other books captured my attention. I was intrigued to read his story and learn more about his control issues. The wait was worth it. He manages to find a woman that can connect to his wolf. The course of their love does not run smoothly. They both have deadly enemies to face. I am looking forward to the next book.

So good

I love this series so much. Lucus and Sofia's story is so good. Lucus has all sorts of demons including not being fond of humans which is kind of awkward because Sofia is very human, but they have so much in common. Sofia calms and brings out the best in lucus and lucus helps Sofia to become less of a workaholic.
These characters were made for each other and if u love a little mystery then this is the book for u.

the most interesting thing about realizing that you have been a complete jerk... is now having to apologize. when Lucas realizes that his biggest problem in finding true love, the kind that lasts forever, is himself he needs to regroup and re-strategize. But will his perfect match, the human Sofia accept his change of heart? book 3 in the series of growing tensions between Lycans, humans and the Mages.

There’s something about Sofia that Lucas just can’t shake. She’s gotten under his skin and he doesn’t quite know what to do about it. Sofia is human, the one thing Lucas hates. He doesn’t trust them, and knows they hurt his kind. Although their attraction is irresistible, will it prove fatal when their pasts finally catch up to them? It’s suspenseful, it’s gripping, it’s a bumpy ride of courage and acceptance in this latest instalment form the True Mates Generations.

When a human detective gets a little to close to what happened in the past things get a little heated between Lucas and Detective Selinofoto. Will Lucas be able to handle this human interference or will he succumb to the sweet smelling detective and cave in his hate for humans. A little twist and lots of inter action in this book. Looking forward to the next one.

I knew it!! In the first book in the "True Mates Generations", there was a brief "meeting" between Lucas and Sophia. At that time I had a tingly feeling telling me that Lucas had met his mate. Either I have ESP or I read way too much by this author! Sophia was the perfect match for Lucas...even if she was human. Can't wait for the next book.
