Susie is focused on making a career, getting out from under the thumb of her family and absolutely does not want an alpha man.  Joe stumbles onto Susie after he comes back from his last mission and ends up taking her in, after her house explodes.

Alpha Me Not is the third book in the White Wolf series and is a wonderful addition to the series.  Susie thinks she is actually a misfit within her family, but after some children go missing, finds out differently.  Joe helps her through the transition, once he realizes what is going on.  With help from Susie’s family and Joe’s friends, they solve the crime that is going on around them.  The author has a lot of twists and turns that the reader may come to the wrong conclusion, I know I did. Be aware that some of the back story regarding children can be disturbing, but is something that has been in the headlines the last few months.

The way Ms. Carlo also weaves characteristics of half-breed shifters throughout the story made a lot of sense.  I laughed about Susie’s reaction when she realized she had actually fallen for an alpha male.  The chemistry between Joe and Susie is hot and I was constantly fanning myself.  There is also the usual conflict between an alpha and his mate concerning orders and what each expected from the other.

Readers can read each story alone, but I suggest reading the series.  I am also hoping that some of the characters that showed up in this story will have their own book.  I will be reading this one again.
