Stella Mulroney is playing a game. It’s taken her two years but she finally has an interview at Gregory & Sons, the top London law firm that looks after her stepfather’s interests. She plans to discover what her Multi-millionaire Stepdaddy really invests in and bring him down.
Unwittingly, she’s caught the attention of Gabriel ‘Gabe’ Gregory, son of her Stepfather’s top Lawyer. He wants to know why Stella has such a need for revenge and would prefer her to channel that fury into a game of his own, ‘The Alphabet Game’. After all, his is much more fun to play …
I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Stella Mulroney has one thing on her mind: revenge; that is, until she meets Gabe Gregory, and now, there are two things on her mind. You can probably guess the other. The Alphabet Game is the first in the Alpha Series by Andie M. Long. It was a quick and fun read. The dialogue is quirky and fun, and it has its schmexy parts as well.
The plot is intriguing, but I was hoping to know more about the characters as the story progressed. It may be since the book is the first in a series, and also because it’s fairly short, that the development of the characters is still forthcoming as the series progresses. I did, though, feel like the plot was a bit of a mixture of several different storylines, and it left me a little confused at times about just where the author was heading.
The author and the characters are British, so it took a little extra effort at first to understand the dialogue, but I enjoyed it once I got the hang of the quirky conversations. There were some mechanical writing issues, but not enough to distract from the story.
I will most likely read the rest of the series because, admittedly, I am intrigued about where the story is going and how it will end.
