3.5 Smut Scale Stars

Not my favorite AR but, as always, I love that they stick to their formula and continue to provide what they promise to deliver: SAFE alpha smut.

I always know what I'm getting with them...I just like some more than others...and that's fine by me.

Tempting the Law is by Alexa Riley. You probably already know by now how much I love these books. I was thrilled when I saw that this book is two parts, Tempting the Law, and then Curvy. How awesome is that!

Tempting the Law - Alexa Riley:

In Tempting the Law, it starts out with Eden as a sixteen year old. I don’t want to give away too much but she is a victim and is saved by Coen. He literally catches her in his arms. A bond is formed but he stays away for two long years.

Recommends it for: Sweet, sexy shorties lover
Genre: Erotica
Type: Standalone novella
POV: First Person - Dual

Two years ago Coen Black saved a 16 years old girl from a kidnapper. Since then, he couldn't get her out of his mind. He had only been watching her from afar until one day he got an invitation to her graduation party.

Eden Mathews had always believed she belongs to Coen since the day he became her hero. Even though she grew up in an affluent family, she wasn't happy and ready to get away from it all. She figured the party would

Quick, HOT and easy reads are never terrible choices!! Tempting the Law was highly enjoyable and Coen and Eden's story held my attention right to the very end. My only complaint is that it was way too short... :))

Quick, sweet, sexy and just AR!!! I always feel like a child in a candy store whenever a new story from AR comes out. It's the small things in life that you much appreciate in life and one of them, at least for me, is reading Alexa Riley books. I always know what to expect from them and I also know that there is a very high chance that I'm going to love the story. As is the case with Tempting the Law.

I love Coen and how he felt for Eden. Completely OTT possessive and hot. What more could a girl
So the truth is that im slowly but surely getting to the point where AR books are not so great to me anymore... uh, that didnt sound well, what i meant is, that they are not enough anymore.

I read all AR books, all 47 and i dont know but shouldnt be there any improvement? Because i dont see any, all i see is that their stories are getting shorter and shorter. The story usually stops at 40% and than another starts, i didnt purchased it because i want more stories. And I think that the writing is l
I have to say, Alexa Riley is a queen of smut love stories! I love the idea for the story, only I wish for more.

When Eden was sixteen, she was kidnapped, and it was detective Coen, who came to her rescue. The incident has a big impression on both of them and connected them ever since. Two years later, Eden sent him an invitation to the graduation party. She knows what she wants, and she wants him. Coen is torn, he dreams about her, but he doesn't think he should have her. But what if she belong

“Goddamn, you’re so sweet. Give me that cum juice, sweet girl, I’m like Popeye looking for his can of spinach. When I get that good stuff, I’m gonna take that pussy and smash it.”

I haven't laughed like this in a long time.

I really loved the concept of this book, however, it's too short for me to fully enjoy it.

Eden and Coen are a couple that meet in an unusual way, and we jump two years after that before their relationship really starts, reason being Eden is sixteen when Coen initially rescues her from a kidnapper.

Fast and sexy. Coen saves Eden and falls for her but she is too young so he stays away. When she invites him to her graduation it's on! It's typical OTT possessive alpha loving with miraculously skilled virgins that drive them wild. I realize you don't read AR for deep plots, but this one left me wanting. Eden did some things that seemed out of character for someone who was supposed to be inexperienced. There's also the matter that when they meet again, he is no longer a law man. Other than that ...more

This story was pure Alexa Riley smutty goodness!!!
Both characters were amazing, and Coen's Alpha hotness was delicious.
I wish the passage from the storyline to the epilogue wasn't so abrupt though. It felt that a bit was missing, and I would have loved a bit more epilogue. I'm addicted to AR's longer epilogue. That would have made this story beyond perfect!
Still a fantastic read nonetheless and couldn't love these characters and storylines more!!!! Coen and Eden's (love the

Tempting The Law by Alexa Riley is a very short read but I enjoyed every single minute of this sweet and sexy insta-love romance. If there is one thing that the ladies of Alexa Riley are known for is that they never fail to leave a smile on your face, whether it be a virgin, love at first sight, or forbidden romance trope. And in this quick light drama free romance, Alexa Riley whips up a sweet love at first sight romance.

Yep. Amaze.

Coen. Reow. Yes please.

There were a few weird phrases in this one.... My favorite being:

"Give me that cum juice, sweet girl, I'm like Popeye looking for his can of spinach. When I get that good stuff, I'm gonna take that pussy and smash it."


I do wish the story would take up more than 40% of the page count though, I've already read most of the "bonus stories" that are included in these so it's a bit annoying.

But overall, this is just what you expect from an Alexa Riley book -

Ok now I think we all know what I am going to say here but hey I will say it anyways, THIS BOOK ROCKED!
What did I love about it? EVERYTHING
What did I hate about it? NOTHING
She is an awesome character and he is an amazing guy! They literally fall for each other, when she falls into his arms when he rescues her.
I will not give the story away only to say it was way way too short and I loved the cute epilogue.
Totally safe read as always.
Oh why does it always have to be so short!

I feel like all my Alexa Riley reviews are turning out to be the the books themselves.

1) Uber-alpha male with a drive to possess.
2) Cute female with a drive to BE possessed.
3) Insta-love.
4) Hot-as-fck sex.
5) Babies.

I mean I keep reading them -ALL of them- so it means I really do enjoy these stories. Though that doesn't change the fact that I've been patie

This was a nice short story with everything I needed!
It's another AR's book which was pretty good and I enjoyed it.
I liked Coen and Eden together, and Eden wasn't the shy and innocent little girl she should be since she was only 18 years old. No, no my friends...
She was a dirty, dirty little girl ready for some action, since the first moment she met her man.
And she wasn't afraid to admit it!


AR's books get the job done every time!

Enjoy! xxx

H saved h's life when she was kidnapped at 16. After 2 years, she just had her 18th birthday and graduated from high school, invited H to attend the party celebration. H, being in love with h, attended the party.

And next scenes?

Famous Alexa Riley's quick fix.

Dedicated to everybody that just wants to get off. << Niceee...

With the same formula. same plot. different job. But I loved their chemistry. It was better than the previous. Well, Coen is in love with Eden since he saved her from kidnapping. Now she's 18 and needs to see him again. Coen has to control his lust... or love.
“Once I have you, I won’t be able to let you go, sweet girl. You’ll be mine, and there’ll be no escape. Ever,” I tell her,...

This is a genuine Alexa Riley little book: short, full of insta-love, with a sweet virgin, and an older sort of caveman, ready to take ownership of what's his.

What makes Tempting the Law special for me, is the subject. A stepdaughter, on her stepfather's radar, getting saved by her knight in shinning armor. It's a delicate subject for me, the stepdaughter-stepfather one, and I'm glad our hero came in between them just at the right time, and everything ended well. That's why I give it 5 stars wit

Every time I need a really good book, I know AR's books are a sure hit. And every time I finished their book, I'm satisfied and happy but it doesn't mean I don't want more because I surely do.

The story was about Coen (no age mentioned, maybe thirties or late twenties) and Eden, 18.

Two years ago, Eden was kidnapped and Coen saved her. He was a detective at the time and now, he owns a security firm, Black Guard Security.

Two years had passed but they never forgot each other. He received a graduatio

Unfortunately, i did not enjoy this book. The stories alexa riley writes have definitely an allure because she provides a safe story where the main characters do not cheat and stay faithful to each other even when they are apart and I have enjoyed plenty of those stories myself. I do not mind that they’re short or have insta-love but I noticed that with each new story especially the more recent ones there was less and less plot to the point where there was no plot at all.

Too short but safe :)

*Throws reality out the window*

I might have chuckled a little too hard while reading this. Case in point:

"Give me that cum juice, sweet girl, I'm like Popeye looking for his can of spinach. When I get that good stuff, I'm gonna take that pussy and smash it."

These are fun short reads but I can't ever take them very seriously. I know what they are meant for, but I can't help but roll my eyes at the over-the-top alpha male-ness thats happening.

On to the next!
