Unexpected Angel by Sloan Johnson is the first book in her Isthmus Alliance series. This book embraces the much used formula of possessive Dom meets sweet woman, sparks fly, woman is defiant (*hear me roar*), man introduces woman to his world, pair have hot and kinky sex, and happiness ensues. While I generally like books of this nature, there was just something about this book that fell short in its execution. I wanted to love it. After all, who does not think a muscled up hot and sexy bald dud

Sexy and thrilling. A fan for life of this series. The next one can't come out fast enough. This novel will make the most unwilling participant submit and love every minute of it.

Wow. I LOVE THIS BOOK! Unexpected Angel is awesome! Sloan Johnson is truly an outstanding and gifted writer. From the first page (or rather screen on my Kindle) I was hooked. I was drawn to the characters and they kept a hold of me throughout the entire story. And this is one HOT story! Dylan is well, HOT! He is gorgeous, sexy, and a total alpha-male, everything I love in my book boyfriends. And he knows what, or rather who, he wants. And he wants Tasha. She's awesome too. Coming off a bitter di ...more
This book contains light BDSM essentially because of the Tasha's past. I loved this book from beginning to end. Dylan was an understanding and very protective dom that I could read about again and again. He said things that made me say," He is special" in a good way. Tasha was a bit annoying but aren't all flawed women?

First of all, let me just say, awesome cover! I have a thing for bald men, and loved it!

OK, on to the book. I loved it too! Dylan was a believable Dom. he didn't have ESP, he wasn't all knowing, he was a regular guy, with a dominant personality who knew who he was and what he wanted. I loved the way he was with Tasha, not overwhelming, but able to get his needs and wants across gently.

For as damaged as Tasha was from her ex, she was appropriately wary, but not bitter and mean, which I love.

Had so hoped this book would live up to it's cover! Unfortunately, found it luke warm.

Loved how we got to read both POVs, but Tasha was whiney, there wasn't much character development, and I thought we were getting setup in the first half of the novel for some actual BDSM but it never delivered. I have read the plot "crazy ex-husband wants her back, goes about doing so by harassing her while new guy tries to be protector" more times than I can remember and this one didn't add anything new nor d

3.5 Stars
Tasha just got divorced from her ex-husband who had mentally abused her for years. Her friends take her out for a night out at a club, a club that she find out later has BDSM. There she meets Dylan. Dylan is all alpha. From the beginning he wants to protect Tasha.
The BDSM was vanilla, which I liked.

My problem was Tasha. She has these threatening texts and a break-in and when Dylan wants to protect her, she does not except his help. I understand that from her experience with her ex,
