Violet is an actress and hasn't acted in a long time. But the right role comes around and is selected as the main character. A dream role. Little does she know Jaxon will be playing opposite her and that's when things really start happening for her.

Violet and Jaxon begin this relationship from the start. To me it felt like the book was really rushed, so it could get to all these dramatic parts. I was hoping there would be more of the movie being made. But it was more about Jaxon and Violet and

A new author plus a new book, equals a new chance to dream, feel, cry and laugh.
"Relentless" is the first book from author Alyson Reynolds I had the chance to read and I can guarantee it was not the last. I loved the plot, the characters, the mystery and the desire on every page I read. Alyson’s speech is simple, very detailed which alow us to feel all the emotions that the author wanted to convey while writing.
This book is told by Violet. She had a past marked by sadness, the betrayal and the c

“You are my inspiration, and my best friend. You are the only woman I have ever fully let into my heart. Violet, you were relentless at making me fall in love with you.”

Actress and socialite Violet Montgomery is offered the part of a lifetime. Semi-retired from acting the part is too good to pass up.
Jaxon Garrett is a new actor on the scene. Hot with an Aussie accent. Great friends, great interactions, and big love.

Violet has been through the relationship ringer. An ex-husband that cou

I was so excited to start reading this book. It moved along at a great pace. I liked the characters. Violet has a great personality and a good sense of humor. Jaxon is an Australian man with green eyes... HOT!!! I also fell in love with all the secondary characters, except Silver. (you'll understand after you read the book)

I also got a little emotional in some of the scenes.

This is Alyson Reynolds' debut book, and I feel she did a great job. I will definitely read any future books by her.

This was a very quick read for me, I just couldn't put it down! Alyson is a new to me author, but I can't wait to read more! The girls in this story were runners, anything bad happens and they run, hard times, they run. There was a time or two I wanted to yell at Vi to grow up and let people around her talk but I think that was one of the things that made this story so good. Real life drama, actor and actress drama. It was all so believable. The next book in the series is going on my wish list f ...more

***I was given this by the Booksmacked for an honest review***

OMG - I have now read a main character who is forced to deal with so much in one book, but that's exactly what Violet Montgomery is forced to do. After escaping a loveless and toxic marriage orchestrated for her mother's benefit, Violet's ex ensures her name is damaged. As an actress, nothing can be worse than bad publicity.

But Violet perseveres - she gets the lead role in her dream role and is reunited with her best friend and a sexy

This was a very well written debut romance novel by Alyson Reynolds which I'd rate 3.5 stars. It's set in America, following the lives of Violet Montgomery and Jaxon Garrett, both big time movie stars, and their family and friends. Both feel an instant attraction, but are unable to prevent baggage from each of their pasts affecting their futures. I loved the striking cover and found the characters engaging and the pace of the book moved along nicely. It was just missing something for me, that me ...more

I enjoyed reading this book and once I started and got into it I was swept along by the story of Violet who meets up with Jaxon when cast in the same film.. but it transpires they've caught each others attention in the past.. this time they're not going to be ships that pass in the night. they both seem to have emotional baggage which holds them back from wanting to give their hearts to each other. I liked the characters but didn't fall in love with them.. I didn't feel I got to know them as wel ...more

Wonderful debut novel from Alyson Reynolds and great start to a promising series. I really enjoyed this romance read, mostly because it's a Hollywood Romance - totally my obsession. Ms. Reynolds captured the daily lives of the Tinsel Town Elite in spectacular fashion.

There were many things I adored about this book, especially the theme of a second chance at love - for Violet. Violet Montgomery {Love the name}, she's beautiful, smart, independent yet a bit reserved due to her past heartache.

Violet and Jaxon are a most unlikely couple especially with her track record. You root for them to find a happy ending from the very beginning, but the road is not easy and it is full of potholes. Each of them has a past that cannot be overlooked and has left an indelible mark on their lives. They've both been hurt, not just by past love by family as well. How they work through these difficult moments to face the surprises in store for them is up to you to figure out. Read the book, because I'm ...more

Beautiful story about a relentless woman named Violet. Her life takes a dramatic turn after getting the lead part in a movie based on her favourite book. We follow her through the twists and turns that follow to test how relentless she really is.
When she meets one of the male leads in the movie, Jaxon, sparks fly and they soon become inseparable. Violet has an feeling that they have met before but can't think where/when until her ex-boyfriend, Scott, is cast in the movie and she sees them togeth

Violet Montgomery is burned out on work and mistrustful of men. She's ready for a break from it all. Well, at least until she receives a call about a role of lifetime in a movie starting the handsome, rugged actor, Jaxon Garrett who has his own trust issues. As the two begin to work together they begin to feel a connection. As they both come to see that maybe they can have a relationship past hurts come to interfere. A fun light read with personable main characters and funny side characters in T ...more

Although 2016 ended well book wise, 2017 is starting off with a whimper. I'm afraid this is a DNF for me. You read about books where there is too much tell and not enough show and this one, at least as far as I could get, was ALL tell and it was impossible for me to even begin to connect with either heroine or hero.

I see others gave this one a good grade and it proves again that readers are all different and what works for one won't work for another. This one didn't work for me, not by any stret

I absolutely loved this romance. Alyson Reynolds is a new to me author and she didn't disappoint. This was a great story with a wonderful storyline. The characters are so dynamic. Jaxon is hot, sexy and has an accent. Violet is a sweet, wonderfully damaged woman trying to get over her past. Jaxon crashes thru all her defenses. I can't wait for more in this series.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I Loved this story, I was drawn in from the very beginning. I really liked these characters and their chemistry. I could not put this book down. I think Alyson did an amazing job telling the story and making you connect with the characters and I look forward to reading more from her.

This was a really good story that made it hard to put down because I had to know what was going to happen. I loved Violet and Jaxson and was emotional invested in them. The story was well written and it made me wanted to know what happened to the other characters in the story. I can't wait to continue with their stories.

Enjoyable book

I enjoyed this book, even though it was a little predictable.

I like a feisty female lead in a story and Violet is one, but that takes nothing away from the male lead Jaxon. Who is just wonderful.

Gonna go look for the next book.....

DNF at 11%. Story feels rushed, especially the romance. One date and Boom! they're a couple. Too much tell and not enough show. Poorly edited. I'd rather move on to something else.
