Molly and Philip are married for about one year and completely in love with each other. In fact, Philip is so in love with his wife that he’s trying to keep his feelings hidden so he doesn’t scare her with them. This leads to some misunderstandings that causes some trouble. Until she gets in an accident and loses part of memory which makes Philip think that he just got a second chance to make his wife fall in love with him all over again. Only this time he’s not holding back at a

Quick sexy read. Not too much brain cells required while reading this one but it is what it is. LOL. OTT, alpha male who is quite dominating and totally smitten and in love with his woman.

It costs about a buck for the kindle book. Worth it in my opinion but it is a short read.

Today is my 10th year anniversary of being together with my husband.
Prior to our tonight's celebration, I have decided to read a bit of Alexa Riley's books and feed my addiction to them... You know these books. They are the ones in which the two lovers live in their one love bubble, nobody and nothing affect them and they are in love forever.
Mr and Mrs is an excellent book Riley style. There is not any insta-love thing between the two main characters like other books by the same writes. Mr and

3.5 to 4*

I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect from this book since the couple in question Phillip and Molly are already married when the book opens.
You see I like the initial meeting, the blossoming of the romance that leads to the HEA so what would I do here?

As it turns out I didn’t need to worry I was instantly hooked.

No, there’s nothing new here but I enjoyed it anyway.
Phillip fell instantly in love with Molly the first time they met, he’s ten years older and totally obsessed and people who

I really enjoyed reading this short, sweet, and sexy story… just what i needed between books ! As expected, Alexa Riley did it again although in my opinion this one was a little toned down than her usual. It also started off a bit different because Phillip and Molly are already married. Don't get me wrong it's still full of hotness and all trademark Alexa Riley material.

Molly and Phillip's story was great and I liked how crazy these two were for each other.

This felt a little different from my usual AR.

I disliked the way the misunderstanding came up. The book stayed true to the whole no cheating thing and it still bugged me.

Also, it was something new seeing a couple already formed.
I like my AR alphas in full form from the start. Why wait for a difficulty to arise in order to realize you need to act on your feelings?

That aside, you get the usual smuttiness and HEA.

The Hero is divine, he worships the ground the heroine walk in, but I was a little disappointed with the heroine. She should have talk to the Hero, instead jumping to conclusions! I did not like her disappearIng and keeping herself and the baby away from the Hero for so many months and then she smacked him, when he had done nothing wrong! I wish the heroine would have more faith in him and be less insecure, when he had never gave her a reason to doubt him!

What a great start for this series. I'm not into angsty books. I like easy, lighthearted books but Alexa Riley know how to make it work. I've read a lot of their books but this one was a little angsty than the rest. I loved it maybe because I know the book is completely safe so I don't have anything to worry about.

The story was about Phillip, 32 and Molly, 22.

Molly's been married to Phillip for a year now. They've been trying to get pregnant but he's busy lately, it made her feel lonely and not

It's always good to have something sweet, hot and short when you are between books. That's why normally I go directly towards Alexa Riley's books. I was pretty excited because in this case AR has started a new series on old romances!

Mr and Mrs is the first installment in this new series called An Alexa Riley Promise and it tells the story of Phillip and Molly Tanner, a married couple who love each other so much and after a year of being married they start to draw apart. Eve

This is only my second read by Alexa Riley and I enjoyed it. It was a quick, sweet and sexy read, so if you like those types of books then you may enjoy this.

Phillip and Molly have been married just over a year. They are both head over heels in love with one another. Phillip is secretly trying to get things in place at work so that he can hand over the reigns and let someone else handle the day-to-day stuff so that he can spend more time with his wife.

This of course has him working long hours a

This novella(?) satisfied my need for some quick, fun and quirky and smutty read. Exactly the break I needed from the books I'm currently reading. I felt all the feels in the world while reading this. Thumbs up to the two epilogues by the way. The second one's my favourite. Omfg, it was hilarious. ...more

This story was just ok for me. I could not love a hero that practically ignored his wife for a year other than to have sex. Because he was worried he would overwhelm her?! Seriously? While I did not agree with the heroine's decision to run and stay away for so long, I also thought the hero was no prize. I get that he got all crazy OTT alpha AFTER he got her back, but he had lost me by then.

I can't honestly say that this was my favorite Alexa Riley read but I can tell this new series is going to be something that I really enjoy. The storylines and tropes aren't unique but when you add a modern day spin on it it gives it a unique feel... Add in AR's cheesiness and I'm all in!

Phillip and Molly have a lot of obstacles to overcome in this one, and they actually spend quite a bit of time apart before they find their way back to each other, and this wouldn't normally be something I would

Alexa Riley delivers the first book in her new promise series and it’s yet another quick read that was layered with sweet and sexy love between with the characters. The story is told in dual POVs as a misunderstanding, long work hours take its toll on this couple.

”I can’t do this. Don’t follow me.”

This is my second book by this author and both have been deemed a success. Both books have hit the spot with the wonderfully devoted

Finally got to read this one! Wow just wow. Was he ever OTT possessive. Seriously loved every crazy minute of it. Really great little story again it's always too short but still a great read. She just loved him too and that just made it all the sweeter. It was just perfect with the two kids boy first then girl just like he ordered and she wanted. I thought it was a little too cheesy to be smut. It had a spicy old school harlequin feel to. Hot however cause they do have sex and there is the words ...more

Just read something similar by Ella Goode. Literally almost the same plot. Knowing this was probably written earlier I am not putting too much of a complaint out there but I felt like I read the same book twice.

** 3-3.25 “my wife is mine!” STARS **

“My every thought began and ended with you.”


First off...this gif has NOTHING to do with the story, so calm your tits girls! I just happen to f*cking LUUUUUURV Mean Girls and this is one of my fav scenes, so yeah...

Now if we come back to our actual topic... The book... Meh.

Maybe it's because I'm in a sh*tty mood these days and am cranky and over-critical and quite frankly...a total b*tch, but I just didn't love this story. Yes, it was cute. Yes

One of AR's better books.

This one has more story and more conflict which I prefer. We all know AR and what to expect.. hot, spicy, OTT alpha males.. but for me, I need a little story as well and this one came through. (No pun intended ).

I do however wish it was longer (no pun intended) and I would like to see a few "love making" scenes thrown in as opposed to all "sex" scenes. IMHO it would enhance the romance making these books seem less like porn. (not that I mind porn LOL)

This book was too cheesy and I knew that before starting it but it had waaaaay too many tropes that I love so I felt that I should just give it a try!

I've come to the conclusion that having all of those situations in ONE book is a recipe for the ultimate dish of fromage!

Time to move on to other things....
Naughty, naughty Harlequin-ish story with all the typical shenanigans of that brand: the OTT possessive hero, the too innocent heroine, the big misunderstanding leading to a temporary separation between the H/h and, gasp, pregnancy and amnesia! Too much? Too hot, that's what it was. ;) ...more

Got my first ARC from AR!!!


Those who know me know that I'm a fuge fan of Alexa Riley. And I always try to wait patiently for the next book to come out but this time it was just too much for me. I had to have this story, like, NOW! Don't worry, I know my state of mind is getting worse but I don't give a fuck. I got my ARC and I freaking loved the story! Personally I think it's the best one so far! No kidding!


The plot is so amazing and it feels like AR took a step forward. We are used

A half smile hits his mouth like he understands. “It’d be real fucking cute if she thought she could leave.”
“He was boring…well, he still kind of is.” She smirks like she just gave him a jab that he could really hear. “All work and no play. Until you. Why do you think the press went so wild? They’ve been trying to catch him with a woman for years, then he’s running all over town with one. Trust me, he’s not boinking the secretary.
