The Alpha Match by Leigh Archer ♥ Review Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Romance)


English conservationist, Caro Hannah, and South African, Ben Duval, must work together on a project to introduce endangered African wild dogs to a reserve, four years after their love affair ended. The challenges of their profession pale into insignificance beside the personal obstacles they must overcome in order to either bring closure to the events of four years before, or reignite a passion hot enough to set the African bushveld on fire.



5 HOT, ROMANTIC, PHENOMENAL STARS!!!

This book was amazing! It's one of those books that made me truly FEEL. I read the whole thing in 2 sittings (would have been 1 if real-life came with a "pause" button!)

This is a "past lovers reunite" scenario, and the emotions that went along with that were so perfectly articulated by Leigh and I felt like I understood exactly what she was trying to convey.

Needless to say, the tension was SO thick throughout the book, and I eagerly read on to see how Caro and Ben finally came together.

I loved how realistic the characters were. Caro and Ben were coexisting in a "workplace" setting (albeit the plains of Africa) and attempted to keep thing purely professional between them. The dialogue was very enjoyable, and I got a few chuckles out of the minor characters as well.

Leigh did a fantastic job describing not only feelings but her imagery of everything from the way Ben looked at Caro via a reflection in a window to the decorations at the fundraising gala was absolutely wonderful.

This is a true love-love story, and I am SO appreciative that I had the opportunity to read it and to be introduced to Leigh! I will read ANY romance she writes!!!

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***


Caro was aware that her voice was rising, but she could do nothing to stop it. Now was as good a time as any to speak her mind. ‘As a matter of fact, if you could stop all the wars on this planet, solve world hunger and reverse the effects of global warming, I’d still feel nothing for you.’

It was the briefest look of pain flitting across his face that silenced her. Then his mouth hardened and his eyes blazed. ‘I’m your boss, Caro.’ He spoke very slowly, his voice vibrating deep in his throat. ‘All I’m asking from you is some respect. Your unwillingness to greet me at the meeting today; that wasn’t very mature, was it? How far do you think we’ll get on this project if that’s the way things are going to be between us?’

Caro was stung. ‘If you think I’m going to be anything other than professional, then you really don’t know me at all. I’ve worked for five years to save the African wild dog and I’d never do anything to jeopardise this project.’

‘Oh, I believe you,’ Ben said. ‘Nobody knows better than I do just how ambitious you really are. As a matter of fact, what was I thinking? Of course you’d never let anything get in your way, least of all other people’s feelings.’

Caro gaped.

He leaned towards her. ‘I’m right, aren’t I, Caro?’

Again he stared into her eyes, his own narrowed and filled with fire.

She could see the cords of muscle beneath the golden skin of his neck. Her breath came in small, silent gasps, and she pressed a hand to her chest.

Ben’s gaze travelled slowly from her face to the hand against her naked skin. He opened his mouth, closed it again. His body tilted towards her, his fingers heading for the bunch of towel between her breasts. Then he snatched his hand back, shook his head, turned and started for the door.
