4 Stars!!

The title says it all - this is a story about a boy, a very possessive man-boy named Josh Turner who's all about...

And a girl, a very innocent girl named Hannah Smith-McIntyre who is very sweet but usually comes off as Damsel in Distress...

Don't get me wrong, there is no distress in the story as such. This book just gave me the medieval vibes with all the "caveman and Josh-can-have-whatever-he-wants-and-however-he-wants-me" shit.

Josh and Hannah have always been next door/farm neighbo

It's guilty pleasure time!!!

I am so biased when it comes to Lynda Chance! Seriously it's like she got inside my head and wrote a book just for me! And it worked!

Oh Josh! Thank gawd you're legal because I am so perving right now!!! A story using the age old plot of star crossed lovers and forbidden love!

Josh and Hannah were utterly adorable! Hannah is the town princess, she comes from a wealthy and affluent family. Josh is the misunderstood guy from th

I'm not much into characters being this young, but I really love this book. I love how Josh loves Hanna and always has her well being in mind.

Have you ever had a book that you put off reading because you just weren’t sure you’d like it? Or there was something in it you just knew would bug you? This was that book for me. I put off reading it because I knew the characters were young and I just wasn’t sure I wanted to read about a 15-year-old and an

My original rating for this story was 4.5 stars. On reread though I wondered why the 1/2 star was taken away. This story for me deserves 5 stars. I absolutely adore both MCs. The love they have for each other is so pure and true. Josh is what a real man and book boyfriend are all about imo. I never read the second story in this series because Zach was kind of a douche in this one but I can't really blame him with everything he went through. He chose wrong the first time but him choo

I must say I enjoyed this one. Yes, it was YA/NA but the characters came across as fairly mature….

I have read some other books by this author and yes, the Heros are usually very Alpha and OTT and Josh was no different.

The only thing I found difficult getting my head around (excuse the sort of pun) was how Josh was able to keep it in his pants for so long…. I mean he was a horny teenager … he definitely had willpower!

A nice quick read and I loved the EPILOGUE. Looking forward to Zach an
Alpha Possessive Heroes


LADIES... HE'S 100% PURE ALPHA MALE! He's very possessive but not a push over or a jerk!

"You belong to me now, understand? You're mine; we're exclusive. Nobody else gets to touch you, and I mean not at all." His nostrils flared and Hannah's heart stopped before taking up a faster cadence. "I own you." His eyes searched hers. "I hope like hell you can handle it.

This is an old book and I'm way late to the prom, so I'll keep this review short.

This book was so over the top ridiculous.

Josh was over the top alpha male possessive, Hannah was over the top sweet perfection, and the way the scenarios unfolded were over the top with perfectly timed and simplistic solutions.

It was like country bumpkin teenage Melrose Place on steroids.

And. So. Much. Fun.

Seriously, nothing about this story was realistic, the writing was not all th

Wow, what a pleasant little surprise this one was. And in saying that in no way am I saying that I haven't enjoyed Lynda Chance's other books. This author has a way around writing an alpha male and when I say that I mean ALPHA!
This book has a way more New Adult feel to it. The characters are young....and it is a real high school sweethearts story with Josh being 18 and Hannah,15 at the beginning of this story.
But if you loved the young Finn Haliday from Kristen Ashley's Games of the Heart and wa
I really enjoyed this story. I would say it was not one of Lynda Chance's hotter books in terms of "sexy times" but it was a good story. Josh was 18 and Hannah was just shy of 16 when they first met. Josh fought it because he knew he was too old for her. He also knew that she came from a wealthy family that had animosity towards his abusive alcoholic father for things he had done. He felt he was living under a dark shadow that he wouldn't be able to shake. Josh proves to be a great young man and ...more

I'm not really sure what this author was thinking here, nothing about this book worked for me.

The taboo, angsty romance was horrid & like a bad song stuck on repeat.

The whole supposedly 'taboo', off-limits element of the relationship was just lame and not fathomable. To think, she's a sophomore and he's a senior & they might get together.. The Horrors!. Psst! I'd imagine about 75% of the world's high school population would be locked up and tarred and feathered if a soph and senior goi

4.5 stars! Wow I have to say I absolutely love Josh and Hannah! This was a sweet, hot patient read! I loved almost everything about Josh ! Only two things bothered me a little. One the fact that he was only 18 and he seemed to have slept with alot of girls(in another town) which thankfully was good. Second I couldn't help but think when him and Hannah first slept together it's in his truck .wasn't that the truck he said he used to pick up girls in and have sex? lol that is n

4 to 4.5 stars. This is one of those times that I wish Goodreads had half stars, because when I rate something 4 to 4.5 stars I think that you should show 4 stars and not round up to 5, like I do when I give it 4.5 to 5 stars. I hate only giving it 4 stars though, because it seems like it's not enough.

Well this is not your typical Lynda Chance that is for sure. Normally I would consider her books erotica, but not this one. If you go into it looking for it to be erotica, you might be disappointe

A couple of things. I bought this book because it was a full-length Lynda Chance book, and I like many of her books, but always thought they were a bit short, so Yay! I was pretty stoked.

And then, after about 40-45% of the way through, I started realizing that something just wasn't right. The main characters were STILL in their teens, and in high school. WTH? I read the author's note which said that it starts when they were young, but they grow up and the book is not suitable for under 17/18. Ok
I love the whole idea of the story . I love Josh and his strong intention and love to Hannah. A bit disappointment is the last 20% seemed flat.

Don't get me wrong, Josh is still on my short list of book boy friend..he's alpha, faithful, he can hold his lust for 2 years not to touch Hannah. And during that 2 years, he's jerking off!!!

A typical alpha male, and typical teenagers...he's so obsessed with Hannah, loved her like no other girls around him. While at school,almost every girl wanted him.


Yes it's NA and I know that's not sitting well with LC fans. Regardless, it was good but not great. Lots of alpha without the action. I guess I'm just a whore for the angst!

This book is one in the series by this author.
If you wish to read this series then you can do so as the others are available for purchase on Amazon.
For me, this book was just a little too long.
I know the author was trying to tie up the story line altogether in a cohesive manner but it just seemed to dragged on.
Their sexual encounters were almost non-existing. However, the passion was real and that made a big difference for me.
I can't say this is "the best" as it was almos
Since this author showed promise and I LOVE jealous, possessive heroes I thought I'd give her another try. The story seemed engaging at first, but due to more TELL than SHOW and too many inner repetitive thoughts I found the book tedious. I stopped counting how many times hero said in his head "She's rich, I'm poor, our families are enemies, bla, bla...

I didn't like some of the portrayal of the heroine. The attitude of "I'll give up everything to be with you. I don't have to go to college. I jus

Jenny: Well G, when I first started this book I thought I was in book heaven. It had all the makings of a sweet “first love” story of two teenagers, soul mates, one from the wrong side of the tracks who were both to learn, grow and love deeply. In fact, I remember texting you saying: ”I’m only 8% into this story but think I may just have book love”. I did like a lot about this book.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite books by Lynda Chance. It was a very sweet, hot romance. I just loved Josh!! I can't wait to read the next one in the series. This is not the first book I've read from her and it will not be the last. It has everything I look for in a romance - standalone, HEA and no cheating!!!! :)

I like an alpha male just like the next girl, but the fact that the alpha male started out at 18 and the girl started at 15 was a bit much for me... Yeah, yeah, yeah they were MADLY IN LOVE and soul mates and all that shit. I don't care. He was BEYOND ridiculous in his controlling ways! Freaking out on her lab partner? SERIOUSLY???

This girl is 15! This man is 18 and has been promiscuous. Now he's laying claiming to a virgin girl who's never even had her first kiss.

And he's laying claim in this controlling way that means she can't even talk to other males. He's telling a sheltered girl that he can't wait to "sink into her". No! He's predicting their spending time on her giving up her virginity. He's not her age, nor at her level of experience so of course he can't just be content to hold hands and make out,

This book was written in dual POVs which to me is a must I only make certain exceptions on certain occasions.....I've read tons of books and lots of them only in one POV mainly the heroine and once I stumbled up on duals I just can't bring myself to go any other way!

Always a fan of romantic fiction, I've always been in love with the alpha-male. So in love, I've never been quite satisfied with the restrictions of series romance. I like to get into a guy's mind and have him do or say exactly what he's feeling at the moment, and sometimes I shock even myself! I consider my stories soft erotica; one man, one woman, heterosexual. But since abiding love is always t ...more
