24 roses.
24 days filled with declarations of love.
24 moments where life will mark her as mine.

I’ve loved Anahi Pratt since she moved in next door at the age of twelve. With her knobby knees and a mouthful of braces she made my heart thump harshly inside my pre-pubescent chest. One look into the greenest eyes I’d ever seen and I was hooked for life.
Paperback, 300 pages

I hate it when I love the author but don't love the book. It makes me so freaking sad!! 😢😢😢

Here's the thing... I loved Bryson. The author did a great job of creating a man I want to read about. He was an absolute sweetheart and had the kind of character you want to find in a friends-to-lovers hero. The kind of hero that has secretly been in love with the heroine and didn't really hide it... she was just blind to it. And holy crap was Ani blind. The only thing beautiful about this cha

Any time Mrs. Reyes releases a book it is an instant one click. From her bad boy tattoo artist to her rockstar, I can say with full confidence that:

SHE CAN DO ALPHA like no tomorrow!!

She can make heroines you cant help but love

She can do sex scenes that will have you salivating !

So when she announced 24 Roses..


From her gorgeous cover to her character development and plot, she perfected a romance where you canthat:

Swoonworthy story alert! These two have been friends forever, but after she's in an accident, he realizes it's long overdue for him to show he wants more. So much more. The only reason she's fought it all these years is fear of ruining their friendship. I can not believe how other girls treat her. Jealous b&*%hes. Bryson is pretty romantic in getting Anahi to see they belong together. Oh, and the end made me cry. Great friends to lovers romance. I received an arc of this.

Review by Country Gals BOOK Blog

Anahi and Bryson have been best friends since they were kids. She watched Bry as he became even more handsome, successful, and had women falling at his feet. Regardless, he was still her best friend and they were still close as ever. Bry watched Anahi grow up from a scrawny beautiful girl to a gorgeous woman. He's always said she would be his. Now it's time to show Anahi he's hers too. But when she gets in an accident h

So where do I start? Completely different from what I had thought it would be, but surprisingly good. There were a lot of things I loved about this book such as the funny back and forth from Ani and Bry, or the romantic streak Bry has. I do have to say that the one thing that got to me was Ani as a person. This character has evoked such an array of feelings that I couldn't figure out which won over until the end. The girl was stubborn as all heck and eventually I settled for realizing that if th ...more

24 Roses by Elena M. Reyes is one of those stories that takes you on a journey filled with true, dedicated, everlasting love.

Bryson has been in love with Anahi since they were very young. But Anahi has always denied that his attraction and love were really true.

After a devastating accident, they both learn how precious life is. However, Anahi has so much inside of her to overcome and she will test Bryson at every turn.

Elena M. Reyes delivers a story that is romantic and sexy all in a beautiful love story.

Some of us have been there, being friends with that person we wish it was more than just that, a friend. That's Bryson's case. He's been in love with Anahi since his pre-teen days but being the boy he was he never said anything, just offered the next best thing, his friendship. After a pretty serious event in Anahi's life Bryson decides to let his feelings be known and start his journey to conquer

I'm gonna start by saying this book wasn't what I thought it was going in. I thought it would be a tale of submission, with glorious domination by an alpha male, and the thrill of the chase. I have to say, I was pretty disappointed in what I got. Don't get me wrong, the tale itself is great, with characters that are well thought out, I just found it to be quite flat. The characters had all been done before, and it felt like there was nothing really spurring the tale on for me. I actually had a p ...more

Elena M. Reyes is a genius when it comes to her alphas and the women they love!! From page one she grabs your attention and has you feeling so many emotions you don't know which way is up.
Bryson is a complete alpha who is fierce and very protective especially when it comes to Anahi the woman he loves. His best friend!!
After a horrific accident involving Anahi occurs Bryson finally decides enough is enough. Anahi will be his. He just has to get through her stubbornness. Anahi loves Bryson,

This was the first book of Elena that I have read!! I had signed up for the ARC and received it in exchange of my honest review of the book. The book is about two best friends who are secretly in love with each other but too scared to admit it. One accident and finally they realise that life is too short to hide behind what ifs!!! Bryson and Anahi's characters are so well written and well defined that one can easily relate with them. I loved the story writing style where the chapter begins with ...more

I had a really hard time with this book, mainly due to the language. There was too much swearing for my taste, and I felt like it wasn't really appropriate to the story. For me, it took away from the story. I actually didn't finish the book because of it, so I can't really say whether the story was any good or not.

I thought the premise of the story sounded good, but the writing seemed a little immature. I know the characters in the story are young, but it seemed like they acted even younger tha

An absolutely amazing love story. I couldn't put it down. The drama they go through to be together and only 6 months and 24 days. Find out how Bryson and Anahi's story will end. Since it started 16 years ago.

Love Elena's Alpha's!

Another great story by this amazing storyteller! The back and forth between past and present was really well done too, so I didn't feel like it was out of place or without relevance to the story. And of course Bryson is now part of my alpha harem😉

Writing this review without giving away the story is going to be hard. This book took me more than s day to read which isn't normal. I usually sit and devour a book until it's done. But these characters frustrated me until I thought I'd pick up smoking and I had to take breaks. Bryson is aggressively affectionate if that's even a thing. He took a second to grow on me and then when I loved him I was done with Anahi and I wanted her to be punished. It felt like Bryson loved Anahi more than she lov ...more

I thought these was a good love story. It kept me wanting to find out what happens next and to see where their relationship was going to go. I like how Bry was protected of Anahi.

I enjoyed this one. It was an easy read. Bry and Anahi were friends since 12 years old. They were always part of each other's lives. Bry was always in love with her and waited until the right moment to claim her. He is very alpha-male about it and doesn't give her any choice but to accept it. His over protective and will break any one who wants to do Anahi harm or comes sniffing around her. When an abusive ex-makes trouble for her, Bry takes matters into his own hands. We'

"I more than like every single inch of you. In my eyes, you will always be my perfection."

And this is how Bryson has felt since he and Anahi were kids. There is no other woman for him, she is it, but he has never professed his love to her.
When Anahi gets into an accident, Bryson realizes how precious life is and knows that it is now or never. He needs to put all of his cards on the table and tell Anahi just how he feels.

With the things Bryson says to Anahi, she must have been dense to no

“How can you say that with this hideous scar on my thigh?” Fuck, she could be as stubborn as a mule.
“That scar…” I hissed out, my eyes searching the floor around her feet for the broken glass I’d heard fall through the door. It was nothing big. A small figurine broken in two pieces. Taking the remaining steps between us, I paused in front of her. “This is proof that what could have been tragic…wasn’t.” Taking her face in my hands, I tipped it up and lowered my forehead to hers

24 Roses was a good read. I enjoyed watching Anahi and Bryson figure out the more than friends thing. Bryson has always been in love with Anahi. Since the first moment he saw her when she moved in across the street she was it for him. Only she hasn't figured out that they would be amazing together yet. She hasn't seen him as more than friends, and Bryson was willing to wait until she finally did. When she gets in a car accident and he thinks h

This is a first for me by this author and I had no idea what I was getting into when I started it. Well I have to say that I loved it.

They say when you meet someone for the first time, you know that right there and then that person is yours!!

In that case that is what happens for Byrson Holt but he didn't have the heart just yet to inform the person he was crushing on that bit of info.

I had such a hard time setting this book down, I loved the banter between Anahi & Bryson as well as their Mother's. I love that Anahi was such a great character to read about as well as the strong willed & stubborn woman that she is. I loved how after something happens to Anahi, pushes Bryson to go after her & not give up! I also love how he has a filthy mouth when describing what he plans to do to Anahi & his romantic streak...far too mu
