📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

End GameEnd Game by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a story of young love and how a variety of obstacles are prominent in getting in the way of a happily-ever-after. End Game is separated into three parts with two epilogues. The first half of the book is full of teenage drama. I swear, I felt like I was back in high school. In my mind, I was laughing because there were quite a few connections in this book for me during that first 45%. No, I was never lucky enough to catch the attention of the star quarterback however, my true connection was with Paisley, Hailie’s friend. While this book is Connor and Hailee’s story, we get a lot of Bran and Paisley as well. Just wondering if there will be a book in the future about them after college years.

So anyway, Hailee is the daughter of a retired military man. She has two wonderful parents and two protective brothers who will do anything for her. New to town, Hailee has grabbed the attention of Connor, the handsome, popular quarterback, who just so happens to be her neighbor. I want to mention that this book is a love-at-first-sight trope. In addition, Connor is an intense, over-the-top possessive hero. First friends, the growing relationship between Connor and Hailee is extremely intense. They were both possessive of one another and overly dramatic in several ways. While the sexual tension is a steadily growing burn, Connor and Hailee take things slow.

I don’t want to say anything about how the story unfolds because as I said earlier, there is quite a bit of teenage drama and the first half of the book was a little frustrating and monotonous at times. Because of the passion and heart of the H/h, I eagerly read on and truly enjoyed the second half of the book. As the few years passed since Connor and Hailee met, new obstacles brought out their maturity and the story became more endearing to me. Less over-the-top dramatic and more real life experiences. Once you finish reading, you won’t have a single doubt that these two absolutely adore each other. Their love for one another was so powerful and I was so happy with the ending. I especially enjoyed the bonus epilogue. It gives hope when there is darkness and fear for the future. Connor and Hailee learn that time is precious and they plan to live every day to the fullest.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

 Locked Up LoveLocked Up Love by Alexa Riley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars
I haven’t read a book from this author duo in a while. Matter of fact, I can’t remember which book of theirs I read last. For no other reason than my lack of time is the culprit. That said, I enjoyed Locked Up Love very much. Just as I remembered the style of writing by this author duo, I felt right at home. It was fast paced, sexy and delightfully over-the-top as is usual with their alpha heroes.

Before they could even develop a natural relationship, Rocco is sent off to jail. I won’t go into details because you’ll want to read this on your own. Regardless of the fact they barely knew each other, in addition to the fact that he was in prison, Rocco and Lizzy managed to connect on an intense level. These two were made for each other before they even had the chance to officially meet. While in prison, these two managed to grow a relationship that started with writing letters. That relationship was strong, bonded in love and yes, protectiveness and possessiveness; another Alexa Riley trademark.

So, again, no more details from me. I will say that I enjoyed this book and am very happy to have read Rocco and Lizzy’s story. While it was over-the-top instalove, it was also sweet and endearing.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

We vowed forever. What we got was two years.
But now I’m back to take back what was stolen from me.
She’s mine to have, and mine to hold.
Again.
A filthy oil-rig roughneck like me had no business with a wife like her. She was the pretty little flower I never should have put my dirty hands on. But Leanna was my everything. My heart. My obsession. And one year ago, they told me another man took her away from me.

…I just found out that was bulls**t. And now, there’s going to be hell to pay.

Her family never thought I was good enough for her – the wrong side of the tracks, and too rough and savage for their sweet, innocence Leanna. They lied to keep me from her, and her from me. But now that I know the truth?

Well, now I’m coming back for what’s mine.

I’m twice the man I was before—harder, fiercer, and even more obsessed. For richer or for poorer? Well, she had me poor and loved every second of my rough hands pinning her to our marriage bed. I’ve made my fortune since, but I’m ready to throw it all away to get her back in my arms where she belongs.

The people that took her from me think they can keep us apart.

…They’re dead f-ing wrong.

A year ago, I thought I lost her. Two days ago, I learned the truth. And tonight, I’m taking back my bride.

And I’ll burn the whole world down to get her if I have to.

Looking for a ridiculously over the top alpha hero completely obsessed with claiming his one and only? You’re in the right place!

This one’s equal parts sweeter than sugar and hotter than sin, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to eat it right up ;).

As with all my books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

Taking Back His BrideTaking Back His Bride by Madison Faye

3.5 Stars
This book was short, sexy, sweet and to the point!
Since I’ve been reading a lot of romantic suspense lately, I was looking for something short with a sexy, possessive alpha. I totally found that with Taking Back His Bride. Just be warned there is no substance to this book other than a man obsessed with getting back his wife and a whole lot of dirt. But it was just what I needed at the time.

Because Brooks has been overseas on a drilling rig he could do nothing when he got the news that his beautiful wife, Leanna, divorced him. After a year goes by and Brooks had made a fortune, he comes back for his wife. Of course when he finds her, and all is revealed, and much manipulation and deceit are the culprits. I won’t give details because like I said, this book is a super quick read. But I will say that while this book contains a dirty talking, possessive alpha, I thought Brooks was so sweet too.

I do wish we got to see Leanna and Brooks when they met and married instead of jumping three years but still, a good book.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
