Eight Steps to Alpha is the first book in the Nerdy by Nature series by Taylor Sullivan. This was a fun read, with lots of laughs along the way, as I followed this friends to lovers story.
Elliot Prescott is a nice guy, a real lovable nerd, who is tired of not getting female attention. He works out, has a great job, he’s nice, reliable, looks after himself, and well presented- so he just can’t figure out why he can never ‘get the girl’. Elliot has a certain woman he’d like to catch the attention of, and has a month while she’s out of town to try to become more of a ‘catch’. He enlists the help of his best friend and roommate, Fe Porto, who suggests that women these days love more of an Alpha male. So, Elliot decides that if that’s what women want, then that’s what he’ll become. Fe comes up with a list of 8 ‘steps’ that Elliot will have to take in order to become the Alpha Male of woman’s fantasies. What ensues is a funny, charming, touching, and highly entertaining romp as these two work their way through the steps.
But what happens when a kiss changes everything? Will these two finally see what’s been in front of them the whole time? Will Elliot get the girl of his dreams? All is revealed in this quirky, witty and original book.
Highly entertaining reading!
Thank you, Ms. Sullivan!
