Vol 1 - 4*
Why am I just reading this book now?
I've read so many Alexa Riley books I can't believe I'm just reading thin now. It's OTT crazy possessive alpha smut as always but I'm loving it.
Carter (who is Carter?) is serving eight years in prison for murder the book opens four years into his sentence with a twenty year old Layla visiting him. She's written him hundreds of letters and not heard a word back, he used to be her bodyguard, a bodyguard she fell in love with.
Layla has no idea ...more
Another reread for me for the hundredth time....I think this is my favorite couple of AR's.
Reread August 2016
This is a reread for me...again. Carter and Layla are one of my all-time favorite couples. I love how he never lets her go and is obsessed with her.

The first story is about Carter and Layla.
The first thing I have to say is that I loved Carter! He's amazing! One of the best AR heroes!There's a scene I didn't like but the story was really good.
They wanted to be together since the beginning but they faced a lot of obstacles. He had sacrificed so much for her. He even went to prison to protect her and he always had eyes on her, still protecting her and taking care of her even when he's away.
It has a beaut ...more

Okay.. To be fair to this 4 Volume Set, I decided to rate each volume accordingly & round the stars out later...
Keep in mind that these volumes are very brief. Some are as short as 4 or 5 chapters. Some are 7 or 8 chapters with a Prologue & Epilogue attached. But none go above 8 chapters. So again they are very brief. Especially volume 1. So if you're looking to try this series after reading this review, I strongly suggest that you go with the box set. It's the b ...more
This may be my favorite Alexa Riley read so far. I really liked Carter and Cherry (her name is actually Layla but Carter calls her Cherry) but I also really liked their story. This one was more story driven than some of Ms. Riley’s other books but it totally worked. The problems that Carter and Cherry encountered were serious and while not always well handled by the characters, they tried hard to protect one another.
It was really interesting to learn how Carter ca...more
I really enjoyed reading this series. Carter was in prison for 8 years and had to wait to claim Kayla.
The hero went to jail to protect the heroine. The hero used to be the heroine's bodyguard. The heroine has tried to get the hero's "attention" since she was a teen. I am not sure what to think of the heroine. I did not love her or hate her. There was nothing about her that stood out for me. I did not care for the side story of the heroine's BFF, Jeannette, and the hero's friend, Saint. I had no ...more
I finished it and the author can write great stories of she just toned down the intimate scenes. personal opinion alert. I know I am a minority. But it's like two books in one. Part hot Romance, part porno. Just not my cuppa. And I read it all so it wasnt awful. The epilogues were great. Loved the playfulness of them and it was great to see the kids and how their relationships are going.
I only read the first three volumes, saving the fourth for later on considering it deals with a different H/h. The start of the series pulled me in especially with a strong Alpha Hero leading the way. However as the story went on I started to lose interest: Carter's path to vengeance, Layla's father etc. And if I can be honest, I didn't see what was so special about Layla. *SHRUGS*
I DNFed at 65%.
Sorry, Alexa. I didn't like this one.
They specialize in insta-love, over-the-top, sweet, and cheesy love stories that don’t take all year to read. If you want something SAFE, short, and always with a happily ever after, then Alexa Riley is for you!
