Early Review: Play Me (A1pha #1) by Blue Ashcroft

Living in a mansion with three hot dudes could be any girl’s dream…it’s just not Kira Wilson's. Not when Alex Dumont is one of them. 

Other girls know him as A1pha, a beautiful, arrogant pro gamer and newly minted billionaire. Kira knows him as an ex crush and a major pain in the butt. But he’s also an old friend and gaming buddy, and when she needs to hide from her abusive ex, she knows that Alex and his roommates Ethan and Ollie (her former gaming teammates) are the right friends to depend on.

Despite the rocky history between them, Kira knows Alex is right when he states that no one can protect her better than he can. Kira's just not sure that physical safety is worth the danger the grudge-holding, haunted, and utterly delicious pro gamer poses to her heart. 

But with her ex hot on her trail, and Alex looking at her in a way that’s hard to resist, she'd better figure it out soon. 

Important note from the author!
A1pha Episode 1 is the first novella in a three part planned new adult romance series about Kira Wilson and her three hot, nerdy housemates. Each installment is a little over half the length of my typical novels, with an intense cliffhanger at the end. Hope you enjoy!

Play Me is a good introduction to the characters in the A1pha series. I hope to see more back-story in future installments. Kira moves in with three old friends that she abandoned a couple of years ago. She knows they'll protect her and she wants to reconnect with them. But one of them holds a grudge against her and she has to fight to break down his walls.

Kira is impulsive and nerdy. She just wants to feel wanted because Dad left and Mom was never home. A few years ago she made a stupid mistake because a guy wanted, no needed her. And now she's paying the price. She's always had feelings for Alex but never knew he had feelings for her.

Alex (aka A1pha) is controlling and domineering. He never takes advice from anyone and is over-protective. Ethan (aka Hawk) is a play-boy and a jokester. He's like a brother to Kira. Ollie (aka Darkhorse or Dark) is a writer and lady charmer. All three have missed Kira and want to protect her, but they all seem to be hiding something from her.

I can't wait to see what's in store for the characters in the next installment. I hope find out more about it soon.
