Author - Missy Lynn Ryan
Series - A Love Sex Magick
Genre - Urban Fantasy Paranormal Romance
Format - Kindle
Published August 3rd 2015

For Chai Macek, dealing with matters of the heart can be tricky business, especially when her V.I.P. list includes one very pompous werewolf that can turn furry at a moment’s notice and rip out her throat. 

As CEO of a successful online dating company and one of only a handful of supernatural gypsies still specializing the sacred art of matchmaking, Chai has a near perfect success rate in helping supernaturals find love. Except for her current clients: Jarret Reynard, a werewolf that can’t shift and his allegedly unfaithful wife, Marci. 

Nothing can prepare Chai for the chaos that ensues when Marci’s alleged lover turns up dead. With police detectives, pack leaders, and nosy roommates all demanding answers, Chai must find a way to get to the truth without implicating her clients, ruining her reputation, or destroying her business. 

Forbidden Alpha is the first book in the edgy yet romantic urban fantasy series, Love Sex Magick.
Chai is a gypsy matchmaker she inherited the family business from her grandmother and has worked hard to have a perfect 100% success rate. When a recent client ends up pregnant and her husband is claiming he’s not the father she’s pulled in by the alpha werewolf to figure out what went wrong. Chai has never had a issue before where the Bandhati Sacrament was preformed and this situation would come up. She was so sure the match was perfect that after the ceremony they should have been bound together. 

Arriving back home with her assistant Yas in hand they arrive at the alpha’s home in hopes of quickly getting to the bottom of what’s really going on. However it’s clear something happened because the groom is clearly interested in more than just Chai fixing his marriage. After speaking to the bride who has just delivered two healthy baby boys she’s admit she hasn’t been with anyone. Will Chai be able to figure out what is really going on? What about the blast from the past that just shows up to win her attentions. 

I adore Chai not to be confused with the drink but don’t call her Latte either. While she may be a matchmaker who wears designer shoes that doesn’t stop her from doing what needs to be done. Like traveling into the spirit world to bring her grandmother back to give her some help with a spell. She’s also joined by Yas her assistant who is the only reason that Chai has her life together. I wanted to dislike Jarret but the more we get to know him the harder it is after all he’s smitten with Chai and clearly things didn’t go as planned with his marriage. 

I’ve had Forgotten Alpha only on my kindle for a short time but have been curious to check it out for a while. When the chance to read it came up for my SS game I just had to go with it after all I’ve not read many Gypsy books so it was calling my name.  The concept for a matchmaker who pairs up supernatural beings was really unique and I loved the idea that someone like Chai was doing it. Forbidden Alpha is an action packed novel loaded with supernatural beings, good guys and bad guys, plus a mystery that could cost Chai her life. I really enjoyed the authors writing style it’s smooth creating a hard to put down novel that captured my attention right from the start. I think the author did an excellent job taking the supernatural world and putting her own twist on it. I can’t wait to check out more books in the series. Perfect for fans of the Urban Fantasy world with just enough romance and mystery to keep you wanting more.
