I cannot stand how often Michael says Anne is intelligent. That woman was stupid. STUPID. Actually, all of them were kinda stupid.

But my case in point is super spoilerific, so I have to hide it. View at your own risk.

I posted this on Amazon: I know that I am in the minority here, but the book just did not hold my interest. I generally read a lot including mystery, romance, romantic suspense, etc. Thus, this seemed like a perfect fit for my tastes. The book starts out with Anne getting a divorce. Her husband's attorney, Michael, sees her before realizing she is his client's wife and is attracted to her. The story then picks up a while later when Anne has moved out of Indianiapolis... and, coincidentally, Mich ...more

Good start to this fast paced romantic suspense trilogy. Left me anxious to get to bk 2, Deadly Deception.

I was impressed by the author's blurb at the end of each of her bks stating that although she and her beta and proof readers try to catch any mistakes, she asks the readers to email her if they find any and she'll do her best to correct. Especially since there are some author's whose bks contain a multitude of errors and they don't seem to do any better at correcting as they continue to wri

I got this book free from Kobo and am very glad I did! I didn't want to put the book down. The characters are very real, and become very special to you. They stayed with me even after I finished the book. I can't wait to find and read the other books in the trilogy. I highly recommend this book!

I'm only ten percent in and am having a really hard time keeping my attention in the story. The author appears new to writing and the story has many distracting writing errors. Also the conversations and character thoughts are childish/teenish. This comes off as a teen book. All of these things together keep removing the reader from the story. This is going to be a hard read to finish.. as good as the story itself is showing so far too. The action scenes are wonderful as are how certain scenes a ...more

Anne is in the process of a divorce. Her friends take her to the bar to let loose a little bit and she sees a handsome guy across the room. She is instantly attracted, but not yet ready to jump into the dating scene. Then she sees him again – in court as her soon to be ex-husband’s attorney! And wait, he shows up again and again! Michael is showing up everywhere, and seemingly always at the precisely perfect moment.

Anne and Michael are a power couple in the making. There is great chemistry, a g

I came across Deadly Offerings looking for a FREE book to load onto my eReader from Kindle. I read a few of the reviews and was slightly apprehensive, but, ended up pleasantly surprised. It was a nice read. I do have to agree with the reviewer who stated they were tired of Anne constantly saying she could take care of herself. But, I think as a female reader, knowing what is going to happen, and getting caught up in the story...I liken it to wanting to jump into the book and smack her around and ...more

This is the first book I have read from this author & I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

Anne is very likeable & Michael is every girls dream guy/fantasy. Anne had a hard life and cannot see it getting any easier she thought once her divorce was final she could move forward and maybe be happy. But happy will have to wait for another day because Anne has a stalker who has already killed and she's next on his hit list. Michael is attracted to Anne and cannot stay away, even thou

First time I have read anything by this author but won't be the last. I read this book in a day as I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know what was going to happen at the turn of every page. I loved the characters but Anne annoyed me at time for keeping on pushing Michael away, found my self speaking to my kindle at times!!
I recommend this to anyone that likes a good romantic suspense. I will definitely read more by Alexa Grace and look forward to the sequel with Frankie and Lane.

I got this as a free read and it sounded pretty good. I liked the story line but the characters weren't really my cup of coffee. This book didn't really pull me in and my mind wandered a lot during the reading. It took me longer than usual to finish because I couldn't really feel the book. There weren't really any page turning scenes although the ending did get close, but I still couldn't really put my heart or head into it. This felt more like a mechanical read than and escape read.

I honestly don't know which book I love more! I read the second book first and just had the pleasure of reading this! This book was action-packed from the start! Micheal is the perfect hero...tall, sexy and the ultimate protector! Am extremely excited for book 3!!!
Cheryl
I tried to read this book three different times. I can't stand our heroine and I think the storyline is silly and unrealistic. It's not often that I quit a book but I can't keep going with it. I am glad it was free.
Dana
I want to say sweet, funny and sexy but the killing part kind of deflects from that. Oh yeah and I hope to see a reappearance of Lane and Frankie although I have a feeling any reader will know where they are headed.

So it starts with divorce and ends on well I won't spoil iit but there are some HOT scenes in here let me tell you.

Anne is a successful co-owner of computer consulting firm. She's also concluding a messy divorce from a two timing gambler who's addiction has drained their bank accounts

I was lucky enough to pick this book up from Amazon for FREE! I just checked and it's still free on Amazon! I recommend picking it up!

Alexa Grace is an Indie Author and I'm so glad I found this book. It's a great start to a new trilogy. I really liked all the characters in the book and found the story enjoyable and fast paced. While there were some lulls in the investigation of the murders, there were no lulls in the story. It followed what typically happens in these types of investigations.

Deadly Offerings by Alexa Grace has a great storyline and engaging characters. I am torn by likes and dislikes in this story. Let's start with the dislikes:
Anne is a woman finalizing her divorce and changing everything about her life. The ex is brought up briefly; if it weren't for the need to meet his attorney, it is part of the story that could have been look at in retrospect. Since it was a needed part for the introduction of Michael, it could have had more heat in the divorce settlement. The

I'm impressed with Alexa Grace's initial attempt in writing. I thought her style was easy to read and by the time I was past the first few chapters, as with any good mystery, I already had my "list" of possible suspects and was waiting to see what move the killer made next. It's a good thing suspects are not hauled off to jail or I might have jailed a few innocent people who appeared guilty but were not.

I believe Ms. Grace's style writing is needed in this genre for those--like myself--who do no

Thank you Goodreads and Alexa Grace...I enjoy winning first-reads and finding new authors! Kudos to Ms. Grace on her first novel. Very likable characters with a nicely paced storyline.

Anne is getting a divorce and the start of a new life on a ranch she inherited from her mother-in-law. Michael is an ex-cop and defense attorney who is tired of winning cases for undeserving clients, which includes Anne's ex-husband.

Anne suddenly finds herself as the target of a serial killer and Michael is the new

This is my first book by Alexa Grace. I first came across her writing by reading an excerpt on smashwords.com called Cornfield Surveillance. I was hooked and had to buy the book the excerpt was from. I was hooked from the first page. Michael Brandt is the man I want protecting me! I felt bad for everything Anne had to give up in order to get a bit of happiness in the beginning. She ended up getting so much more. I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time, I was trying to figure it out. ...more

I got this for free on Amazon and I was really lucky. I really enjoyed this book. I loved Anne and Michael's characters and even Frankie and Lane. Anne was going through a divorce and so happens her husband's lawyer is the sexiest man around. Michael has to help Allen get everything from his wife during the settlement, but so happens the woman is gorgeous and someone he wants to know real well.

They get mixed up in a crazy serial killer case while they both fight each other over their feelings. I

I don't normally write reviews on books I've just read, but I felt compelled to write one for this book. First I'll address the dislikes that everyone else has pointed out. Yes, at times it was hard to follow and there were a few grammatical errors, but all in all, I didn't care. There aren't many books that I just can't put down, and I read it all in one day. That said, this is one of those books. It kept me guessing up until the very last page, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! I wo ...more

This book was recommended by a very good friend and at first I was not so sure I was going to like a romantic suspense novel. I started reading the first few lines and immediately got caught up with the suspense and the excellent way the story was evolving. My mind started running trying to keep up with the details so I could try to figure out “whodunit”. Alexa Grace delivered a very good drama with suspense, enough sexual tension to make you want to keep on reading even though you know you have ...more
Pamela
This is the first book I've read by this author. I read a lot of books and am very picky, especially if the main character seems to behave in a manner that causes me to think she deserves whatever she gets and is too stupid to live. Since I have read a lot of books by authors new to me lately and they all seem to share that same TSTL characteristic, I wasn't sure what to expect.

I was happily surprised by Alexa's writing. Not only were the characters likeable, but the writing was very, very well

We're introduced to Anne, a beautiful faithful brilliant wife of a two-timing gambling loser of a husband. After many affairs, Anne has filed for divorce and meets his gorgeous lawyer unbeknownst to her. Michael can't take his eyes off of Anne when she meets her two best friends for a girls night out. He comes to her rescue outside of a bar after an intoxicated patron gets a little too familiar with her in the parking lot.

I loved this book. I have paid big bucks for books that did nothing for me. I got this book free and I couldn't put it down.
The suspense and romance weaves together to make a great read. I have paid for her 2nd book Deadly Relations and I can't
Wait to read about Frankie and Lane. Two people that met in her first book. Alexa I think or should say you will be a great writer.
I can,'t seem to find the 3rd book Deadly Relations. I will have to email Alexa and see if I can get it from her.
Caranna
Alexa Grace's Deadly Offerings is a fast paced romantic suspense novel.

Anne is in the middle of getting a divorce. Her friends take her out so she can relax and let loose, and she sees a handsome guy across the room, but she's not yet ready to jump into the dating scene (despite the encouragement of her friends.)

When Anne leaves the bar alone this handsome stranger saves her from a would be attacker. Then she sees him again – in court as her soon to be ex-husband’s attorney! But that's not all,

I liked the suspense mixed with the romance. I went by what other reviewers stated how it was poorly described or how they disliked how the heroine had a "back off attitude" towards the hero. Totally contrary. I liked how well described the characters were and I personally liked how their actions and their surroundings was so visually clear.

What I liked more then anything... the setting for the next story was created and laid out. I cannot wait to read the next one!!
Samantha
I really enjoyed this book, the characters and the story. I found my self laughing aloud and smiling a lot! The only critism I would have is about the rescue of Anne. It seemed a little anti-climactic. I thought it would've been better and expected the author to let the murderer have a little more of the story at that point. The build up and the ending just didn't do it for me at that point.
With that said I can't wait to read about Frankie and Lance in book #2.
Kim
This was a free download on my Nook, and while perhaps I shouldn't admit it, I never have high expectations for the free downloads; I've been disappointed nearly every time. So this was a pleasant surprise. I found that I was excited to leave the office so that I could go home and finish reading where I'd left off the night before. While there were a couple of inconsistencies that bothered me from time to time, I'd recommend this to others.
