Harper Sloan


Book Review by Brenda Wright

Book Blurb:

Note from the author--This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn't suitable for younger readers. Brash language, sexual hotness, delectable alpha males, some violence and adult situations are all over this book--you have been warned! **wink**

Fate hasn’t always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a down right bitch.

Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn’t by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved.

For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle…her ex-husband.

When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door.

Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to now. He’s carried his anger for so long he isn’t sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.

How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?

My Review:

I don’t even know where to begin with this book....even “book” sounds too insignificant of a word.  This was a STORY not a “book”.  I was asked by a friend and author if I could help out a friend of hers and edit a book that she was writing.  I said, of course!  I was a little nervous, as  I’ve never read anything by her.  This was her first book.  What if I didn’t like it? Well, a few weeks later, I received an email with what she had written “so far”.   I read it and from the prologue, I was intrigued.  I was crying in the prologue.  I was so emotional.  I couldn’t wait to read more.  And that is how my love of Axel started. Sigh...

Yes, I edited this book, so one would think that I am biased.  I might be, but even if I hadn’t, I would love this book.  It’s such a great story about a second chance true love.  It starts out a little “rough”.  Rough, as in I winced and gasped several times.  It was hard to read.  I truly felt for poor Izzy.  Domestic violence is tough to see on TV or in a movie, and that’s what I felt like I was watching......a movie. 

But Izzy is tough and is a survivor!  She comes through very strong.  Her best friend, Denise, moves away with her to start her life over.  That’s a GREAT best friend!!  Izzy has another best friend, Greg, who has been through a lot with her and helps her deal with her emotions from her past.  When her estranged husband contacts her again, Greg contacts his friend to help.  He owns his own security company.  They were best friends in the Marines.  When Izzy meets the man that can help her deal with her husband, she thinks she’s in a horrible nightmare... it can’t be...can it be?  Why is he here, and on her birthday?  Her birthday is an awful day for Izzy.  She just wants to drink to forget and wake up the next day and not have to remember what happened on her birthday. 

True love prevails.......sometimes it’s a rough journey, but true love can survive.  I don’t want to give away too many details.  Just trust me when I say that you MUST read this book.  I cannot tell you how much I loved it!  You may have seen me on facebook pimping the hell out of this book this week.  I’m the type of person that likes to share greatness when I see it.  I am so excited to hear about Greg Cage in the next book in the series.  Believe me, I’m already bugging Harper Sloan to get to writing faster so we can read that story.

Axel is an ex-Marine...that alone puts him up a few notches on the hotness meter.  Add those green eyes and the way he talks to his “princess”, and you will be melting.  There are several scenes (like chapter 13) that I really needed a cold shower after reading.  I have a few pictures that go along with that chapter.  Soon, you’ll be one-clicking, and you’ll also be swooning over Axel.  You may not to read that chapter in a public place!  YEP, it was that hot!!!

There are other ex-Marines in this story and you will also fall in love with them.  I can’t wait for their stories too.  I think one of my favorite characters was Sway..... OMG – wait until you meet him.  I was laughing out loud every time he spoke! HILARIOUS!!!  You will love him!!

Ok, enough of me blabbing about this book.  You’re  wasting time....go, one-click!  You can start reading now!!  Soon you’ll be pimping this story too!! 

Here are a few of my favorite quotes! 

Going to make you scream princess, and then when you can’t take it anymore,” he pushes his denim covered hips hard into mine, his thick erection rubbing my clit in the most delicious way, “then I’m going to lick my way up this sweet fucking body and finally I’m going make you mine.”

“I love you, Axel Reid.  I have loved you forever and I will never stop.  Made for me, baby.  You were made for me.  Don’t ever leave me.  Never again.  I would rather die than be without you again.”

About the Author

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoys ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
