Sienna Mills knows her alpha males.
They love the word “mine”.
After spending her early twenties in and out of relationships with alphas, Sienna used her knowledge to found Alpha Mail, a booming business that allows women to sign up for emails, letters, and texts from their own brooding, red-blooded man.
Her star is on the rise and Sienna is attracting the interest of investors when a mysterious man starts messaging her about the true nature of an alpha. She’s got it all wrong, he says, and he’s willing to show her how a real man makes women respond.
The more Sienna hears from him, the more aggravated she becomes. Who does this anonymous, supposed alpha think he is, anyway?
And yet…she can’t deny his messages are becoming the best part of her days. Commitment-phobic Sienna finds herself wanting more from her sensei of seduction. But is she willing to trust her heart to an alpha again?
I start returning emails, and I’ve almost worked my way through all the new ones when an instant message pops up on the screen of my phone. And of course, I smile, pick up the phone, and let myself get lost in my mystery man.
RoughRider16: Good morning.
SiennaM: Good morning to you too.
RoughRider16: How’s your day so far?
SiennaM: No complaints. How about you?
RoughRider16: It’s a good day. I thought about our conversation last night when I was in the shower this morning, and you’re right. I’m giving the promotion to John.
SiennaM: I’m glad to hear it. And you feel good about that decision, right?
RoughRider16: I do. I actually feel kind of shitty that I was going to give it to someone who doesn’t deserve it for the wrong reasons.
SiennaM: Windshields are bigger than rearview mirrors for a reason, you know. Look forward, not back.
RoughRider16: Okay, boss. ?
SiennaM: Can I ask you a question?
RoughRider16: Of course.
SiennaM: Why do alphas say ‘You are mine?’ Like a woman needs to be constantly reminded or something? And like he owns her the same way he owns his car and his running shoes?
RoughRider16: Some guys say it because women like hearing it.
SiennaM: Huh. Have you ever said it to a woman?
RoughRider16: No. I’m about actions rather than words, remember?
SiennaM: So how do you show women they’re yours?
RoughRider16: By never taking them for granted. Sending flowers, holding her hand when we’re out, opening doors, remembering what’s going on with her and asking about it, making her a part of my life…a woman who feels taken care of never doubts whose man she is.
SiennaM: Are you really an alpha?
RoughRider16: If you took one look at me, you’d know I am.
SiennaM: Why? Are you big and imposing?
RoughRider16: You just know, trust me.
SiennaM: So you never say things like, “You are mine”?
RoughRider16: I think you’re secretly one of those women who likes it.
SiennaM: I am not.
RoughRider16: Not even in bed?
SiennaM: Is that when you like to say it?
RoughRider 16: I don’t have a formula with women or anything. Like I said, it’s been a while since I had a relationship, and to be honest, I’ve never had a very serious one.
SiennaM: By choice?
RoughRider16: lol, yeah, by choice. It’s not that I can’t find anyone who’d want me.
SiennaM: What do you think is the first impression women get of you? That you’re an alpha based on what they see, but what else? When they talk to you and start getting to know you?
RoughRider16: I think I come off quiet.
SiennaM: But you aren’t actually quiet?
RoughRider16: I am sometimes.
SiennaM: Are you quiet in bed?
RoughRider16: Well, aren’t you just full of questions today?
SiennaM: You don’t have to answer…
RoughRider16: I’d love to answer, as long as you’ll reciprocate.
SiennaM: I *always* reciprocate… ?
RoughRider16: Ugh, there you go getting me excited at work again…
SiennaM: See that halo glowing above my head?
RoughRider16: Yeah, I see it all right… No, I’m not quiet in bed. If I’m ever guilty of being a stereotypical alpha, it’s during sex.
SiennaM: Tell me you’re going to tell me more…?!
RoughRider16: I’d never want to disappoint you…so more it is. I’ll never get to take you to bed, but if I could, that’s when you’d see a side of me no one else ever sees. A side that’s only for you. That’s when I’d tell you how crazy you drive me in those skirts you wear and how much it turns me on hearing you say my name. You’d see me turn from the gentleman who makes you feel cherished every second of the day into a beast ruled only by his raging desire for you. I wouldn’t leave an inch of you untouched or unsatisfied.
SiennaM: Not gonna lie, I’m liking the sound of that a lot.
