Look out world, new author, Harper Sloan, has arrived and she is going to be sitting fire to kindles everywhere...you have been warned.
Once upon a time, I caught wind of this new man floating around, the more it was discussed the more excited I became to meet him. Then one day, just being curious I asked the author if she had a...muse for him, I was just too excited and wanted a face to match him with. I ended up getting to help out find the face and after that I have been patiently sitting and waiting, well sort of. Haha, I'm not even going to lie, I have no patience, but you know, there's only so much you can do until a book is released so I've been waiting and reading every excerpt given with great anticipation.
Then I was offered an ARC, yes, I got a little carried away but my excitement just was out of control. Then I read the book and WOW, I was no where near as prepared for the awesomeness of Axel...., let me explain.
To start everything off, the Prologue alone in this story was amazing. I feel sorta guilty saying that seeing as what was going down in it, but holy crap, it pulls you in and makes you feel like you're there living the nightmare with Izzy. You see Izzy has had a pretty rough time the last few years. Every since she lost him
, her life continuously has been going down the drain, but this situation with Brandon takes the cake. Finally, getting away from him she starts living again.
Of course, she still has triggers that make her have bad days. Greg and Dee the most awesome best friends ever, and even though I am definitely in love with Axel, I will admit I have a serious crush on some of the other guys as well. Greg being one of them. Anyhow, sorry, lol, I got sidetracked there, it just so happens that while having one of her bad days, would be the day that Axel comes barreling back into her life. I can't say anymore, I don't want to spoil ANYTHING
, but damn this book was so good!! I just could go on and on."Never again, Izzy West. I will never again let anyone take you from me, or anything from us."
Axel was pure alpha male perfection. I'm not even kidding. He was strong, protective, and holy cow he said some of the most sexy, dirty things. Good Lord if that man was mine, we would starve to death because there is no way my ass would ever be leaving that bed if he was in it, hahaa. And Izzy, oh wow, she had lived through so much. I felt so sorry for her and just wanted to give her a hug. Yet, she still had life in her enough to come back from that and be this awesome chick who sits in restaurants and jokes around with guys about sex and takes on people just to prove her point. The sex talk thing, btw totally cracked me up, me and my bff have done the same thing before numerous times and it always seems to be a hilarious conversation. She's brave, sexy, confident, and totally comfortable with who she it.
This book had a heartbreaking storyline that hooked me from the beginning, fantastic characters of all kinds, scorching hot sex scenes that had me melting, and a beautiful happily ever after. "I know you felt it baby. No way had something that f@cking powerful skipped your attention. Hear me now, and understand me, we will talk but nothing you can say will change the fact that you and me are happening. i won't let you go Izzy. Never. You're mine, you got that, princess?"
"I always have been yours, you know that don't you?"
Don't add this book to your To Be Read shelf, read it now. There is absolutely nothing, I repeat NOTHING, about this book that you will regret. I don't know what Harper Sloan has been doing before she decided to write this book, but it is evident she has found her calling, and I see a bright future for her being an author, and I know I'm on the bandwagon to cheer her on!!! :D Arc provided by Harper Sloan for an honest review.
Of course this is my response for when I got my ARC. :)I got an ARC, I got an ARC!!! I'm so freaking stoked!!! WHOOP WHOOP!!!
