From New York Times bestselling author Alexa Riley, a friends-to-lovers romance that will bring you the happily-ever-after you've been waiting for
Jordan Chen is the man behind the screen. As part of the elite security team for Osbourne Corporation, he has an iron grip on protection, all without having to make close connections with people. Until he me...more
➳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 ...more
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.
“I should have sent something cool and called her “babe” or “sweetheart.” Something. Anything. But instead I sent an old man from Star ...more

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 ...more
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
Jay is smart and independent. She works hard and doesn’t back down when confronted by a problem or s ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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! ;)
Jordan an ...more
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!
If you are a ...more
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.
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 ...more
"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."

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 ...more
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'
'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.
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. ...more
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 ...more
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.
Jordan is a possessive hero with a shy personality, who ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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
-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 ...more

They specialize in insta-love, over-the-top, sweet, and cheesy love stories that don’t take all year to read. If you want something SAFE, short, and always with a happily ever after, then Alexa Riley is for you!
