3.5 Possessive Stars!

This book tells us the story of Sara, 22 years old young nurse freshly out of nursing school and with a simple life, and Trenton, 30 years old gazillionaire and famous CEO of his own very lucrative company.
One night in the ER, she has to assist Trenton that arrives there with a head injury, and although they have an immediately chemistry, they don’t start on the right foot.
Not only Trenton has a lot of secrets that scare Sara, their personalities collide, with him being

4.5 Uh, Huh, Uh, Huh Stars

I recieved an ARC of this book from the author for an honest review.

That's the way, uh, huh, uh, huh. I like it. Uh, huh, uh, huh. I hope you were inserting a little K.C. and The Sunshine Band there. Cause this book is worth singing about. It's like 50 Shades and 007 had a love child. And that baby is Frontline. Well, minus the Red Room of Pain. There is a Playroom, but I'll let you discover that one for yourself.

A hot and possessive, dirty-talking, James Bond-ish guy who drives a Bugatti.

Trenton emerges from the middle car, a Ferrari. Add in some slow motion, a gust of wind, and an emo rock tune, and it’s like a scene out of a show on the CW.

After being in a huge reading funk, this was exactly what I needed. It had all the elements that I love in a book - a hot, rich and domineering guy, a stubborn heroine, interesting secondary characters, witty lines, a little bit of action and

DNF at 15%!

I am hoping it's just a case of "it's not you, it's me". This book has great ratings and I found the plot intriguing. And things started off great...but then they all came to a screeching halt at 15%.

I thought the meeting of Trenton and Sara was a little far-fetched. Well, maybe I should say, their first kiss was WAY far-fetched. But I was willing to keep going.....after all it was only the first chapter.

HOLY SHIT!!! I could not put this down (except to sleep and do some work).

Who is Trenton Merrick?? He's a wealthy business man with more money than he knows what to do with. His face has covered many magazines and is known across the world. But what is underneath that facade??? Who he is really??

Frontline...... where do I start with this review. Man I have to say that I never ever read a book that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading it only to end totally different from what I thought. Man this is my first book I have read by Alexandra Richland and it will not be the last. Alexandra writes one mean book that keeps you hooked to the very end.

I was promised a hot read :D

When nurse Sara Peters treats celebrity billionaire Trenton Merrick for a mysterious injury to his forehead, she is blindsided by what follows: a passionate exchange in the examination room, followed by an invitation to Trenton's mansion the next night.

Trenton spins a web of deceit and seduction around Sara that both repels and attracts her. One part humanitarian, the other international financial mogul, his professional and public life are a curious contradiction.

2-Stars is the best I can give this one. I didn't like much, including their first meeting/kiss. How can you botch an explosive kiss in an examination room? By making the hero appear waaaay too arrogant! Still, I finished the book and enjoyed most of the second half. *Beware* Trenton's a possessive billionaire...but, aren't they all these days?
I read this as fanfiction... sadly I had issues with it then too.

I was honored when Alexandra Richland contacted me to ask if I would be interested in reading an ARC of her new book, Frontline. Having enjoyed one of her previous novels (Starlight) at the beginning of the summer, I was more than ready to read something new from this author. This book was released just yesterday and is a separate body of work from Starlight, so if you haven’t read Richland’s previous stories don’t let this stop you from picking up Frontline. I’ll state upfront that I found it t ...more

You know what happens when you change the names of some characters, fill in some blanks with human shit and then insert a random yet very "masculine" story line to an already existing book?

Le wild fuck-bag of crap appears!

Let's break the plot down:

A very sweet, strong, hardworking (emphasis on working) and goody-two-shoes nurse's life is about to change. That change is Trenton Merrick.

Who is Trenton Merrick? (Really? This? A tag line for the book? On the cover? Really?)

Well, Trento

*I'd like to thank the author for giving me an ARC, in exchange for my honest review.*

This book was different. The blurb makes it look like a romance novel, with a lot of lies and angst. It was that, but it was also an action/thrillr novel. I definitely got more than I was expecting, and I'm very happy I took a chance and read this story.

I really liked Sara. As a nurse, she was very compassionate, and we found this out in the beginning of the novel. Trenton came into the hospital w

3.5 Stars; The story started immediately. The first scene is Sara working as a nurse in the over packed ER. The hot and rich, Trenton Merrick walks in and he is immediately moved to the front of the line while other patients continue to wait for hours and with more serious injuries. Sara does not like this and speaks her mind only to get the attention of Trenton.

I liked Sara and I could understand how she could not resist Trenton. There is insta-love, which I know can be unbelievable, but I lo

Exciting and action-packed… this book really surprised me in every way. It had a little bit of everything… drama, suspense, romance, action, mystery, steaminess… I couldn’t put it down! And really the story hinges on understanding…

Who is Trenton Merrick?

That is the big question in this exciting book! I was immediately hooked by Trenton. When he meets Sara, a nurse, he makes it clear that he wants her. I was so taken aback– in a good way– at Trenton’s possessive, overly-confident, sexy alphaness.

This book took me by surprise. I loved this book because it was so good and funny as hell. Sara went into work one night as a nurse working the night shift and this one night shift completely changed her life. She ends up meeting Trenton Merrick and in just one meeting the sparks go off between them. Their relationship is a whirlwind relationship. I mean it takes off fast. Sara's two friends are hilarious. The advice they give her is exactly what we girls do when we are mad at a guy. Trenton is ...more
4 1/2 stars! Frontline is an exciting read that is not your average contemporary romance story! It has a thriller aspect that I loved. The author has created some very memorable characters in Sara Peters and Trenton Merrick. Trenton is not your typical sexy billionaire businessman. There is a lot more to this story, and I loved that he throws Sara off guard.

There are also great supporting characters here that I would love to read more about. I absolutely felt connected to Sara and Trenton and l

Extremely well written story filled with romance, mystery, and action. Completely sucked into this novel after only about 3 pages. I was able to read this book in about 3 days and it only took me that long because my "quiet me" time was a little limited.

I received a recently updated ARC copy from the author that goes deep in all the right places to capture the essence of the hero and heroine in this first person POV, erotic, action adventure romance. All hands inside the compartment ... expect a wild and exciting ride.
I could not connect to the characters and the story so I was not able to finish it; I won't be giving it a rating.

Every now and again as a reader, you can come across a book that you may have read the genre over and over again and the storyline may be the same but the book itself sticks with you. For me , this was Frontline by Alexandra Richland . Frontline was your classic case of a Cinderella story with your everyday girl being Nurse Sara Peters and your Prince Charming being trillionaire Trenton Merrick with his Dark Red American Express in which only 100 were made and four of those belong to Americans. ...more
