This was an hour-killing train wreck of a book.

Seriously this thing was ridiculous.

First off, Nolan.

Holy Restraining Order, Batman, this guy was nucking futs like you would not believe.

Like we are talking legit psychopath here people.

Like so many of Aurora's Men he has an abundance of the Alpha gene, as well having the three P's:

I love over the top, obsessive, protective alphas. And for some reason, when Aurora Rose Reynolds writes about insta-love, it doesnt even bother me. Ive said it before and Ill say it again. Normally, this brash alpha and love at first sight thing does not work for me. But the way she does it just does. These books are guilty pleasures of mine and I cant get enough! This book is so different from her other series, but not in a bad way! I enjoyed the steam, the mystery, and even the over
3 Bossy Stars.

This novella brings the steam, the romance and the mystery. Okay, the mystery part was a bit predictable, in the way that I realized what was happening almost from the beginning, but the rest completely almost up for it.
When Nolan met innocent Chloe he was done for good. And he was decided to do everything in her power to have her and keep her safe with him. Sometimes he came across as a bit psycho and I didnt like how he didnt give Chloe a single choice: He practically forced

I think this book was the most OTT book I have ever read...

My God the things that were happening had me trying to blink slowly in case I missed something because let me tell you every damn second something was happening...

Nolan had money coming out of his ass (Lucky Bastard), he was crazy obsessed and possessive of Chloe in a way that I was surprised he let her breath without his permission...


I liked this book but Nolan was suffocating with the things he did,

Urrgghhh... how do I even begin to write this review? This was my first experience of Aurora Rose Reynolds and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. I really wanted this book to be brilliant... I mean I love a fictional alpha as much as the next woman but from the moment I got inside Nolan the asshole's head, it all kind of went south.

Holy shit. Where do I being ?
The heroine is so inconsistent character wise.(She's either fiercely argumentative or in constant denial.)Thank god I didn't have to bear her for a whole book.


And the hero ? He's a certified phyco.

Unlike the heroine if he ever told ME to shut my mouth at any time ,I'll probably WIRE his jaw shut by the end of the day.Lol.

Wouldn't really recommend even for lovers of over the top alpha males.Nothing

Self Note: This book really screams "SECOND BEST"

The hero pretty much did everything with other women before the heroine

1. Falling in love
2. Getting married
3.having very enjoyable sex with his wife
4. Trying a baby with his wife like crazy
5. Constantly idolizing her and how "beautiful she was"
6. Having a fantastic sex until "passing out" with other women

So what the heroine is getting?

1. Being a virgin
2. Not loving anyone

Before I begin I must warn, this book has instalove, insta-everything with a seriously possessive, overbearing Alpha Male that made even me question this guys sanity. This book will not be for everyone and if youre even thinking about reading this novella, you need to leave judgment and all sense of reality at the door. This is the kind of book where its completely crazy and just not realistic but if youre in the right mindset, you could enjoy.

For some reason I thought this was a full length
Tanja ~ T's Book ~ KT Book Reviews
Short, domineering and, at times, rushed. If you are looking for a quick spicy read than you will be pleased with Justified. If you want a long, emotional read then you might want to give it a pass. I enjoyed it, but......I was left wanting way more with the plot. It felt more like an outline for a really good book to me. I wanted much more. Fast paced and packed with so much drama I felt a little cheated on the details.

Total controlling alpha male and a virgin submissive.. you get the idea. It

This book was pure smut and I loved it!!

Sure it was short and felt a little incomplete but hot damn there was some good sexing!
Nolan is a high profile lawyer and recently divorced man that sees what he wants and goes after it. When he spots Chloe he knows instantly shell be his. Convincing her of her place beside him isnt too difficult of a task, but keeping the threats surrounding them isnt as easy.

So there are few things about books by Aurora that you are guaranteed; hot alpha men that fall instantly, fall hard and never take no for an answer... Nolan was all kinds of sexy with a side of caveman. However, what I was

Tink Magoo is bad at reviews

If you're after over the top possessive alpha heroes the Alpha law Firm series is exactly your cup of tea.

Nolan ticks all the boxes of an Alpha, he takes what he wants and makes no excuses for it, is over the top possessive and can make your panties melt with just a look.
Chloe came across as an innocent little daisy who wouldn't disagree with anything anyone says. But she turns out to be a headstrong independent woman who doesn't care about Nolan's money, she was exactly what he needed.

**3.5 Stars**

I would have liked it more if we got the first part of their relationship. But, I still love an OTT alpha hero!
Raine short

I love Aurora Rose Reynolds books. This one she is writing under the penname of C.A. Rose. This is a shorter book than her usual books, but still has the alpha makes and sexy scenes!

Start to finish, this was just plain bad. I've never read a book with such little character development. He was called an alpha, but I feel like that was a disservice to the word. Asshole in need of psychiatric help is more like it; stalker is even more accurate. The whole story was rushed, even for a novella. And before you crucify me, know that I am A-okay with insta-love and over the top TRUE alpha's. I'm no prude; the darker and dirtier the better. This was just NOT that, even a little. I ...more

I'm disappointed. No, actually I'm pissed. Because I REALLY love this author's ability to write true protective, alpha heroes, a girl can love. Girls with spunk at least. Chloe muttered 20 sentences in the whole book (moaning, screaming and grunting aside).
This book was plainly a book about a narcissistic dude who's actually enthralled with himself. As I was reading it I couldn't help but feel that I was drawn into a BAAAAD 50 Shades of Grey fanfic where the main protagonists where blown

3.0 RATING-An okay read. Similiar to a Lynda Chance book, just less polished. Definitely a book you can't take too seriously. The hero is a total alpha with major stalker tendencies. In real life, he'd be on the news as wanted and dangerous. In book life, he was fun to read about. I wish the heroine had one ounce of backbone, it may have made the story more interesting but overall, it was okay.

I'll stick with this series because I like my guilty pleasure reads and I like the author. I did think

Honestly I never thought the day would come I would truly dislike something written by Aurora Rose Reynolds but sadly that time has come... What's more than confusing is after having read Justified from start to finish I'm still baffled as to where the actual story is. All I got from it is an assholish alpha male creeper who demands, takes and does as he pleases. Throw in loads of sex, rushed over and (told not shown) scenes is the end result.. Ummm, what???
