Hello friends! Today I have my review of Claiming Mia by Alisa Woods.
Claiming Mia is the first book in the Dot Com Wolves series.
Trigger / Content Warning: Murder Mention, Attempted Murder, Guns, Gun Violence, Blood, Sex Scenes
I’m a mess. Broken. Lost my mate and almost myself. In no shape to help anyone.
Then the sexy girl serving me drinks stumbles into trouble with a bunch of wolves who are bad business—I should know. They’re the competition. And they’re as dirty at dot-com investing as they are predatory on young things like her. So I save her. Because I may be broken, but I’m not an ass.
Only she shows up the next day at my office. As my intern.
And now the Red pack is after her, putting us square in a pack war—one she doesn’t even understand. I’m in no shape to claim a mate—not happening—but if I don’t, the Red’s jackass of an alpha will.
I’m just trying to earn my degree and dig my way out of poverty.
I was born a shifter—more of my bad luck—but I’ve kept that a secret, so it doesn’t ruin my life. Shifters are monsters. Criminals. And I’m trying to make something of myself. This internship at the hottest internet business development firm in Seattle is my ticket out… only the boss is a wolf. And insanely hot. And he saved my life.
I’d break all the rules for this guy—except he wants nothing to do with me.
The wolves who do are the Big Bad Wolf kind. The kind I’ve always heard about.
I’ve got nowhere to turn… but to the one guy who doesn’t want me at all.
Claiming Mia (Dot Com Wolves 1) is a super-hot complete story with HEA.
(Formerly published as True Alpha).
Claiming Mia is marked as a New Adult Paranormal Romance. That’s true, but there are two points of view within Claiming Mia. The first person that we read from is Lucas, who we find out further along into the story, is around 26-years of age. While Mia, the other character we read from, is only 21-years-old.
Both Mia and Lucas are drawn to one another and yes, they do end up coupling—many times. Mia is all-for whatever they have to grow into something more. While even though Lucas craves Mia, he resists her. Until it’s too late. Until Mia is in the hands of the one person that Lucas never wanted to meet.
Lucas’ character seems like any other “damaged” guy. Lost his previous-wife, blames himself for her murder. (Not to lessen spousal death-grief) it just seems like there are a lot of characters in Shifter novels out there that Lucas blends into.
Mia, strong-headed, new to her Shifter-side. Falls utterly in love with Lucas, even though his refusal of Mia hurts her—many times.
The story moves incredibly quickly, which I am thankful for. If the story was slow going I would have marked Claiming Mia as Did Not Finish early on into the novel.
There are a few different factors that the characters had to go through to get out in the other side. Lucas certainly had to deal with things until Mia was kidnapped
Overall this story is one that could be enjoyable for some. For me, I found that the story while nice to read, was just … boring.
I give Claiming Mia, 2.5 stars.
