ARC Review: Malcom by (The Alpha #1) Jessica Cage



Malcom had much to live for including being second in command of his wolf pack and a future match with the leader’s sister. But, of course, love said no way and he fell for a human. Punished and sentenced to exile by the vindictive leader of the pack, Malcom heads out alone. Living a solitary life until he finds comfort in a family owned bed and breakfast, his exile comes to a quick end when he seeks out revenge for their death and on the request of someone from his past.

Malcom heads out to find the vampire he once saved and had a steamy, forbidden night with. Thus begins the love hexagon. Mwaha! In between Malcom getting involved with trying to save his previous pack and prevent an all out war between wolves, vampires, and wolves against their own kind, Malcom leaves a string of panting female hearts. Vampire, human, wolf…

Malcom is one tough, yet compassionate cookie with a lot of baggage. Malcom is confronted with the insane Vincent, death, and his past. And having sexy time… lots of sexy time… with different people. Like I said, there is a love hexagon, but it meshes with the story and doesn’t detract from the story. Malcom is an easily likeable hero and the storyline and paranormal world building create a nice back drop. I did eventually shake my fist at Malcom, ready for him to finally choose SOMEONE and stop messing around, and he did. A nice surprise, though daunting task for our hairy hero to complete ties up the story.


I am a young mother who at one point gave up on my dream to be a writer because everyone told me there was nothing in it for me. After having my son, I questioned, how can I inspire him to follow his dreams, reach for the stars, if I do not do it myself. Yes I have made some mistakes, slip ups and all, (some very embarrassing), but instead of tucking my tail between my legs and running away to hide, I stepped back a bit, cleaned up my act and now I am hitting the pavement hard. I am inviting all who are interested to come along with me on my journey as I seek to grow and improve as a woman, a mother, and a writer.
