Logan is the typical cocky, handsome, man-whore fighter. He is Unbreakable. But unbeknownst to his fans, Unbreakable, is already broken. He is broken on the inside and that is why he can never give his best friend Maxx what she wants. Max is in love with Logan and he knows it and if he admits it to himself, he loves her too, but he cannot allow his feelings for her to overrule what he knows. He knows that he comes from a long line of abusers and he will never let Maxx be touched by the curse that seems to cling to his bloodline.
This was sort of a frustrating book. The writing irritated me. All the reviews I read seemed to enjoy it, but I thought that it was weird. Paragraphs in bold were comments directed at you, the reader, from the characters in the book. I think most people found it funny, but I found it annoying. I started skimming when I got to those parts, because I didn't find it funny like it was intended to be.
(view spoiler)[ The other thing that sort of bothered me was that Logan KNEW how Max felt about him, and he wanted to protect her from himself basically. But then he paraded woman after woman through their house (Yes, they were roommates, along with their other two best friends) knowing that would hurt her. That ticks me off.
Then the whole plan that Maxx and her friend comes up with to get Logan's attention makes NO sense! She decides to mess around with him, basically do anything but sleep with him because she's sure that will get his attention. (And even that doesn't work, because she ends up throwing herself at him and he turns her down) So basically she gives him exactly what he wants... her, with no strings attached. In real life that would be Logan's dream come true, he wouldn't stop sleeping with other woman just because he finally got what he wanted. No he would think he hit the jackpot by having his cake and eating it too. It's ridiculous. The kind of thing that would get his attention is if she finally got some self respect and decided to put some space between Logan and herself. No more letting him cuddle up and spend the day in her bed after sleeping with some bimbo, or two, the night before.
Ugh it just annoyed me to no end. Because it wasn't realistic at all! (hide spoiler)]
Then when I'm finally getting to the end of the book, I'm ready for it to be done and wrapped up I get to the last page to find out that is NOT the end of the story. It's one of those books that has 4 or 5 other books following it. So to finish the story I have to buy multiple books with about 150 pages each. I can't stand that. And I doubt I will be buying the next book.
It wasn't a terrible book, the story sucked me in and held my interest the whole time. Xavier Neal is a good story teller, there were just too many things that annoyed me for me to really enjoy it. What really baffles me though is that this series- if you can call 150 page books a series- has some serious love. From readers, I mean. The reviews for this series were overwhelmingly positive and nothing but praise. Although I guess if you are going to pay for all these individual books, the last few books are probably going to be read by the biggest fans of the series, the people who aren't feeling it, me, have dropped off after reading the first or second book. I find it a bit of a rip off and it has to be seriously engaging to get me to but 4 short stories at $3.00 a piece.
So to wrap up, I kind of want to know what happens with Maxx and Logan, but I'm at the point where if he falls into bed with one more bimbo, and then Maxx acts like it doesn't bother her, I'm going to throw my kindle. And I'm pretty sure there will be more of that in the future books, based on reviews I've already read. So, no thank you. I like reading about women with a little more self respect.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

I was so excited about reading it, I had planned on saving it for a trip I am taking to Florida in two weeks, but I couldn't wait. I started reading it and finished it in one day. I'll have to read something else on the way to Florida.
I was intrigued with the violence/knight in shining armor aspect of this book. I couldn't wait to get to that part and when I did get to it, it didn't disappoint. The story line was good but I thought there should have been more. For an $8.00 e-book, there should have been a lot more to read. It was way shorter than I was expecting and because of that I felt as though the relationship between Maddie and Ortiz was rushed. They went from being attracted to each other, to being in love in a matter of days/weeks.
I really liked her coworker Manny. I would have liked to read more scenes with him in them. I thought his character was so well written I could picture him very clearly in my mind. He had an extremely likable personality.
In closing, I enjoyed this book but at the end felt a smidge disappointed because it was over so fast. ...more

Along the way she met a 10 year old girl who was certain her father was going to rescue her. When her father did show up to rescue her she asked him to take Keela with them.
Marruk couldn't ignore the attraction to Keela the moment he saw her. He also wanted nothing to do with the feelings that were stirring him every time he thought of Keela.
This kept me interested through the whole story, but when I was done reading it just felt like an ok book. Nothing really special, but not bad either. It was the typical alien book. I'm noticing a lot of them are just so-so with the same sort of story. Nothing really sets this book apart from the many others like this one....more
