4 ½ stars – Contemporary/Erotic Romance Novella

I read this quite a while back as part of the Real Men Last All Night (Lexi Steele, #1.5) anthology and the smokin’ hot tale was my favorite out of the four.

Ex-Army Ranger Ethan Cooper owns a bad-ass biker bar in a small Texas town and enjoys his no-strings-attached, love ‘em-and-leave ‘em, bad-boy lifestyle. He suddenly finds his life turned upside down and his hardened, cold heart turned inside out when he finds himself lusting after his quiet, in

This was a good book and I love reading Ms. Leigh's books. This is the first book in her "Wounded Warrior's" series. Ethan Cooper is a bad boy who runs the local bar. From his attic window he catches a glimpse of he neighbor Sarah Fox sun bathing - she thought nobody could see her. She is a loner and works from her home. She has a crush on Cooper but he is too male and thickheaded to see it. She goes to the bar and he signals the bartender whether she can have a drink or not. He uses his influen ...more

This was a short sweet Lora Leigh story about a girl in hiding after her kidnapping & torture as a teenager. Cooper is a bad guy who owns a bar & lives next door to Sarah( a nipple pierced virgin). She has the hots for him, he has the hots for her. Now it's a matter of getting together.

It was a good story, but I was totally unhappy with the ending... Nothing happened... Oh well. BUT I love Lora Leigh, so all is forgiven! Worth it!

This one could have potential to be a full length novel instead of just a short novella. Cooper is a hardened man. He owns a seedy car, was an Army Ranger, and well he cant keep his eyes off his neighbor.

Sarah has her own secrets. She has a very horrendous past and when her secrets come to light. The relationship between the two is gonna get interesting. It was spicy and interesting to read.

This is the one that started it all (for me) I read an excerpt for this book in a magazine (can't remember which one as it's been years) and went out and bought the book the next day and the rest they say is history. I have read almost everything by this author and always wait impatiently for the next one.

I have read this story so many times it's ridiculous. I love this author so much. I am in love with Ethan Cooper. Seriously turned on thru the pages. His Sair has grown on me.

Good read

Thrills, chills, romance, adventure, it's all here. Good, bad, sinners, redemption. Nice story line, not too heavy with endless backstory and characters you can enjoy.

Some alpha men can be very demanding until they find the right woman to bring them down hard.

Wonderful third time reread of this book.
First read years ago in REAL MEN LAST ALL NIGHT. Reread this time in TAKEN.
I really enjoyed this hot sexy tale with likeable characters.
You start off believing Sarah is this prim virgin with body piercings but boy does she have one hell of a background.
Loved all these other wounded vets’ characters. Pity Miss Leigh has not continued with more books in this series.
Previous review missing.

Hot, Hot Hot Novella

"Ethan Cooper was a bad boy, and he knew it."

THE STORY: Ethan Cooper is a bad boy who runs the local bar. He is entranced with his next door neighbor Sarah Fox who Cooper believes is too good for him. Sarah has wanted Ethan since she moved next door two years ago. What occurs is a sexy novella with a small dash of danger because Sarah has dangerous secrets.

OPINION: I really liked this novella. It is very hot and I really liked the characters. The emphasis on the sexual relati

I reviewed this book as part of the Taken anthology.

Oh my! Ethan Cooper is one seriously hot alpha male. I so enjoyed the scene with which Ms. Leigh opened Cooper's story ... it was certainly stimulating. Of all of the male leads in this anthology, I think Cooper may be my favorite. When he stops avoiding Miss Sarah and decides to give in to his attraction to Sarah, oh my goodness, I don't even know a word that can properly illustrate how much I enjoyed those scenes. But as Cooper admits his fee

What it's about: For Lora Leigh fanatics, Cooper's Fall is being released today (Dec. 11) as an e-novella for the first time. It's originally published in the anthology Real Men Last All Night. Cooper's Fall is about Ethan and Sarah, an alpha male and a wounded heroine. Cooper is a biker and ex-military, while Sarah is inexperienced but tough. He witnesses her sunbathing and that's when things begin …

Why you should read it: It's a good novella about good old-fashioned falling in love and a myste

Cooper's Fall is about Ethan and Sarah, an alpha male and a wounded heroine. Cooper is a biker and ex-military, while Sarah is more inexperienced but she can hold her own. In this short story you get some spicy sex scenes, a mysterious past revealed and your happily ever after ending. Cooper’s Fall was 1st published in the anthology "Real Men Last All Night” in case it seems familiar it is this release is for 1st time available as standalone novella not a new story so just head's up ;)

Standard SUPER hot Lora Leigh story. I liked the characters and the steam it was all around good. I think I might be getting a little sexed out though. I think for the standard Lora Leigh reader or new comer it will be a favorite.

Enjoyed this novella. Cooper is the Alpha hero, and boy, is he alpha! Love the fact that his workers were all ex-military and I'm wondering if Lora Leigh will feature any of them in their own books.
Anyway, good story, hot sex, and pretty much what you'd expect from one of Lora's hot books

Quick read with non-stop action from page one to the end! Great chemistry between the characters and a really good and complete story line. As always, Lora Leigh delivers!

Small 82 page novella but I really enjoyed it. She could have easily made this a full novel because the characters were likable and I wanted more but it was pretty good for how short it was. I want a story about Jake.

I know this one was short, it just didn't capture my attention. I stopped reading about 2/3 of the way through. It was repetitive and flat. I'm usually a big fan of Mrs. Leigh, but this one just didn't do it for me.

I wish there was more of it!
3.5 Stars. A brilliant little distraction of a book, which tempted me away from a longer story. Perfect for a lunchtime quickie. Hot Alpha males, sizzling sex scenes and an interesting plot. Yum.

This novella is fast-paced and hot! There is just enough character development and backstory to make it interesting beyond the sex scenes.
