WHY I READ IT
After reading Everything For Her and being introduced to Ryan and Paige. I knew I’d need to read their story.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
She thinks I’m perfect. A good boss, a good man. She thinks that I play by the rules.
She has no idea who I truly am. Why I’m really here.
Paige Turner is trying to outrun her past, but there it is, tossed back in her face anytime she manages to get two steps ahead.
She has no idea what a man like me will do to get what he wants.
Her need for Ryan got in the way of revenge, took her off course. Redirected her focus. Before she knew it, he’d made his way into her life. Into her heart.
I’m dirtier than she knows. She thinks I’m good to the core, but she doesn’t know the things I’ve done. The things I would do for her.
True love doesn’t let secrets as big as these stay buried. And when the truth about Paige’s father is finally exposed, Ryan will do anything to fix everything. Paige has always been his—and his alone.
The heat, chemistry, and love/hate relationship between Ryan and Paige throughout book one of this series had me all revved up and ready to get their story. When I finally did I have to say I was a little disappointed. Much of this book was spent in Paige’s head going back and forth as she argued with herself about just about everything. There wasn’t as much action which seemed odd considering this was a book about two bodyguards and a girl who has a plan to kill her father.
The writing was on point. There were emotions flying all over the place and I could feel the struggle as Paige tried to decide if Ryan was who she needed or more importantly who she deserved. The sex scenes were off the charts hot like only Alexa Riley can do. But I just found myself slightly bored throughout the book.
Ryan or Captain as Paige refers to him as wasn’t your typical Alexa Riley male character. While he still had some over the top alpha tendencies he seemed softer than past characters. He let Paige get away with things that other men would have spanked her red over.
Overall this was a good read but it lacked the sizzle typically found in an Alexa Riley book.
