➳Insta-love is always the specialty of AR, but this love story has gone to the next level of geekiness and romance that I am addicted to...

➳Jordan and Jay officially have a special place in my heart when it comes down to the whole inst-love romance. Starting off as friends because they cannot share their mutual feelings towards each other, Jordan and Jay have found a way to interact with so much tenderness and love. For Jordan, Jay is the one and only that he wants to spend every single free

4.5/5 ⭐️.

Alexa Riley does know how to write MAN GOALS!
I love Jordan. He’s so much more “okay” and less possessive then the Oz and Ryan (love then btw), I was a bit surprise, because AR man’s are usually over the top jealous but in a good way.
I adore Jay.
And omg this book is so funny!!😂
I will read anything AR writes.
I’m addicted to every single book of her’s.

Jordan Chen is a gorgeous, single guy from Brooklyn who works for a company called Osbourne Corporation where he’s the head of the technology department, and works as a security expert monitoring the building. He’s the man behind the scenes securing everyone’s safety. He’s never been in a serious relationship or found someone he’s really into, until he meets the beautiful Jay Rose. Jay is the owners administrative assi

It was really great to get back into the world of the Osbourne Corp....Miles, Mallory, Paige and Captain. I loved getting a glimpse of them again. They were a great cast of characters and Jordan and Jay (I continually mixed them up) were a great addition.

HERO~ Jordan - sweet, protective and alpha. He knew the moment that he saw Jay that she was his future. Knowing he couldn't fail, he incorporated himself into her life, quickly landing himself in the friends zone- or so he thought

Alexa Riley is the go to writing duo when you’re looking for something short, sassy, angst free and with scorching heat. Claimed fits the bill perfectly. Longer than their quickies, this one has a bit of drama and mystery as well as suspense included. There is still plenty of insta-everything but this time there’s a friendship that developed before either of these characters showed their feelings.

Jay is smart and independent. She works hard and doesn’t back down when confronted by a problem or s

What the everloving fuck was I thinking?

DNF @ 33%.

Forget about Romancelandia or Smutlandia. This was Virginlandia of 20+ somethings mixed with atrocious writing and laughable characterisation.

I was doubtful; I knew the chances were low, but I thought 'What the heck, maybe they've learned from their first full-length novel and have at least developed writing skills that go beyond fan-fiction.' I apologise to all those who can write good fan-fiction. Claimed is not it, however. I'm so unlucky wit

The more of Alexa Riley I read the more I like her book. Her stories are so over the top, they’re adorable. This story in particular pulled at my heartstrings.
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Jordan and Jay were such a cute couple! We got the overly possessive, stalking Hero in Jordan that Alexa Riley is known for but he was also a bit shy at first. I was surprised to see our main couple have a normal, fumbling and nervous start to their relationship. They were adorable!

I'm not sure if shy is the right word I should use for Jordan. His and Jay's start to their relationship had him come off as the IT nerd who can't make a complete sentence in front of Jay, which puts him in the friend

YAY! More For Her series and more Alexa Riley full length goodness!!!

I can’t express how giddy I got when AR announced they would be giving us this couple. After the first two amazing books in this series, closing the main couples’ story, I was sad to think His Alone would be the last of the series, because all the secondary characters sounded so good, I was praying these ladies would give us every single one of their stories and continuing the series. Well, looks like I got my wish! ;)

I absolutely LOVE IT when the ladies of Alexa Riley gives us a full-length novel! It feels like freaking Christmas when it shows up on my kindle! In CLAIMED, book #3 in their For Her Series, we get Jordan and Jay’s beautiful friends-to-lovers romance. Now, if you know Alexa Riley’s work, then you know it is a friends-to-lovers romance on CRACK because it happens INSTANTLY! Insta-love at its finest, folks!

4.5 stars

I often struggle with Alexa Riley's longer book. For me they, seem to lack the chemistry that their shorter reads have however I thought this writing duo did a great with Claimed.

Jordan is probably one of the sweetest Alpha males you're going to read. He's a bear when He has to be but a softie when he wants to be. He has strong family values which started with his parents, specifically his Pops. It's evident that his father is still in love with his mom long after she passed away.

Missy's Book Obsession
Another fabulous insta-love romance by Alexa Riley!!!! Claimed is the third book in the for her series. Jordan and Jay had great chemistry and a HEA. Jay was a strong and sassy heroine. Jordan is a OTT alpha male and was so sweet to Jay. As always the epilogues in Alexa Riley books were Steller.
I'm giving this 3.5 ⭐
I usually enjoy AR full length books more than the short, and this was no exception. I'm pretty sure AR gets away with a level of cheesiness that I don't let slide with other authors simply because it's all so obviously over the top that I can't help but get a kick out of it. My only big complaint with this is that about 3 or 4 times I came across a sentence that was so similar in meaning and structure to another that it pushed me me out of "Fantasyland" and straight into "E

Is it odd to say that it was refreshing to have Jordan also be a virgin? I’m kind of tired of always reading books and the woman are always the virgin.

"That’s pretty sexist to assume men can’t be virgins." He leans down, giving me a kiss and then rubs his nose against mine. "Maybe you’re not the only one who’s been waiting for the right one."

7/19/2017: A cover AND a synopsis?! And it's Jordan's book?! WOOOT!! 2018 is so far away!

This is the third story in the For Her series and they are all intertwined so we get moments with the previous characters too. However, this is Jordan and Jay’s story.

Jay is the PA for Miles at the Osbourne Corporation. She is very dedicated to her job, excels in detail and is very much in control of her life. When she meets Jordan for the first time there is an instant spark.

Jordan works in security for the Osbourne Corporation and once he lays eyes on Jay he decides that she is his. Now he is

Already I'm on a huge reading slump, so I thought maybe Alexa Riley will get me out it. But Nopes. This one was boring.
It has all the AR elements.
'He has eyes only for her'
'Possessive Hero'
'Insta-love but friends to lovers'
.....with some suspense.
If you liked AR's previous books from "For Her" series then maybe this one is for you.
For me?
Also the characters names were confusing. It came to the point that I didn't knew who is who. Jordan....Jay...??
Both of their POV sounded similar.

Claimed is the third book in Alexa Riley’s For Her series, but you do not need to have read Everything for Her or His Alone to understand this one. It’s clear who the couples are from the prior books, and you will be interested in knowing more about their stories, but they are not necessary for you to understand Claimed.

As Alexa Riley is an author I’m constantly seeing, I keep telling myself to read more of the author’s books. Prior to Claimed I had only read a single Alexa Riley book, Beauty i

Another great installment in there "For Her" series. In this part, we have Jay's and Jordan's storyline and let me say that once again AR nailed it delivered romance at its if I can put it that way.

This part had a different vibe from what we've used to both characters struggled to admit their feelings to each other, creating suspense and some angst... I was screaming in my head and my heart was to tearing apart by these two stubborn people.

Oh Alexa Riley... I love you. Claimed is one of those books that just makes me happy. Jay and Jordan are both delightfully weird and awkward which made them so relatable! They both long for the other but have NO idea how to make a move. Its adorable.

Jordan has a close relationship with his father and I found that enchanting. I like stories that feature functional families and strong bonds. I loved that Jordan and Jay were both virgins! I know, everyone is over the virgins, but I think its

Jay Rose has featured in the series from the very beginning as Miles' (Everything For Her) fiesty Executive PA. Jay prides herself on her organizational skills and getting the job done, her demand for excellence doesn't win her any friends compounding Jay's inherent loneliness. The only person that has shown her any form of friendship is the digital security guru, Jordan. Determined to push aside her attraction to Jordan in an effort to connect on a friendship level, Jay begins to rely on J

I’m a big fan of this series and I enjoyed reading this book. Jay and Jordan both have feelings for each other but thinks they are both in the friend zone so to speak. One day Jordan has enough and in typical Alexa Riley, alpha male status he shows how he really feels about Jay. This story had a suspense element which I loved and I wish Jay would have told Jordan sooner about the threats. Last I checked he was the head of security and I would have told him the moment I got the first threat. I al ...more

I'm liking the full length novels in this series. It's what you come to expect from Alexa Riley but just an extended version. You've got the usual possessive, alpha male and the cute, damsel in distress heroine and the insta-everything. Although this time there was a buildup while the male MC got himself out of the friend zone. An enjoyable read all in all. ...more

Very cute! Nowhere near as amazing as book one and even two to some extent but still enjoyable.

Gahhhh sweeetness overload!!!!

This dynamic duo never fails to grab my attention with their smutastic stories.

I luuuurved both Jordan and Jay as character! just bloody adorable. They start off as friends all cutesy with a crush that they think is a secret when in reality everyone but them can see it!. It's a slow burn romance.. teasing us mercilessly throughout with fiery chemistry and adorable sweet moments. Together they just melt me! They had zero luck when it came to dates but bless them it
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Claimed: A For Her Novel Alexa Riley is book Three in the "For Her" series. This is the story of Jordan Chen and Jay Rose. I have read the previous books (and loved them~!) but feel this can be a standalone book.
I just love Ms. Riley's book and always so excited when she does a full length book so I had to have this one for sure!~
Jordan is a smart guy who I would say seems to stay in the back ground but when he sees Jay it sets something off in him. Jordan still has a hard time putting words i

"Claimed" is the story of Jay and Jordan.
Somehow I ended up missing that the 'For Her' series had a third novella, and this is the story of Miles's secretary and security consultant.
A full length AR goodie with
-a super obsessive, stalkery, devoted virgin hero
-a sweet, quirky, kind virgin heroine
-Insta attraction leading to compulsive love
-Gentle lovemaking
-some drama and threats
-HEA with extended epilogues

“… chicks love a friends-to-lovers story.”
Claimed is the newest full-length novel by Alexa Riley. It’s a lovable friends-to-lovers romance at work told in dual point of view. It can be read as a total standalone even though it's the third installment in the For Her series so naturally, a few characters from the previous books make a brief cameo in it.
The story blends cute
Dee's Reading Zone
I'm hoping that Alexa Riley gives us more longer stories to the For Her series. Another obsessed alpha and a smart heroine--- Jordan and Jay's story was funny, suspenseful and a very steamy read! This is one series I will read again and again for sure!

5 Claimed stars!
