Being Alpha by Katie Salidas

Being Alpha (Olde Town Pack)Book Description:
Newly-Minted Regional Alpha, Aeson Silverman hit the jackpot. Power, prestige, and wealth, he’s got everything a wolf-shifter could ask for.
Or so he thought…
Being the Alpha is not the playboy lifestyle he’d imagined.
Despite devastatingly good looks and an impressive wit, he can’t seem to get Emma MacBride, the hottie doctor from another pack, to give him the time of day.
Unfortunately a bruised ego is only the beginning of Aeson’s troubles.
Someone has been poisoning the minds of other territorial Alphas, systematically pitting neighbor against neighbor. And the moment he takes control of the Long Teeth territory the rising storm of dissension finds a way into his pack.
Allying himself with the powerful Olde Town pack, Ace chooses comradery over aggression and invites warring neighbors to join him for a meeting to establish peace.
Diplomacy comes with a reward earning him a date with the elusive doctor MacBride.
But every choice the young Alpha makes is under scrutiny and when his peaceful summit ends with the death of a high ranking wolf, the fate of his pack and his leadership hangs in the balance.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book.  I've looked forward to another book from this author and this one was a good combination of some of her series.  Aeson is the new alpha and with the title has come a multitude of headaches.  Once he meets Emma, all he wants to do is impress her.  There is a lot going on and Aeson has to keep his focus or he risks a lot more than his heart being broken.
I wasn't a huge fan of Emma.  She was in love with someone who wasn't for her but also just kinda seemed fake.  I loved the other characters coming back in and how this wasn't just focused on romance, but on pack, loyalty and laws.  Pack brothers are close and I enjoyed watching how they relied on each other, though politics and everything swirled around them, it didn't stop them from having each others' backs.  
It was a 4/5 for me.  A good wrap up to the series (unless the author decides to *hopefully* write more!)
