Alphas of Danger

(Devoted Lovers #1.5)

4.28  ·  Rating details ·  277 ratings  ·  103 reviews
Happy-Ever-After has never been so intoxicating…


When a man has beaten it, he becomes a hero.


When a woman tastes it, she is helpless to resist his pull.


It won’t come easily, especially between alpha men and their headstrong women. Threats lurk in the shadows, and the price for passion is often exacted with a bullet or a blade…but the sacrifice is worth it

Let other men covet petite, delicate females. He wanted this one. She was the Alpha female, cool and competent and often at odds with him.

OF ALL THE TEASING! I'm equal parts ecstatic and crying after finishing it.

This is set several years in the future, and set in a similar universe as Masters & Mercenaries. And that's all the details you'll be getting from me. My advise is to avoid any reviews giving any more away because you w

OMG seriously? WTF happened to Shayla Black?? This douche is supposed to be ALL about the heroine. He claims he has wanted no one but her since their ONS but his fuck buddy of 15 years (I am pretty sure after that long we call it a relationship) needs some "release" because her Dad dies and he FINGERS HER! But you know, that is A-OK because he told the fuck buddy he only wants the heroine.

Then the heroine thinks to herself she isn't happy that he touched his fuck buddy like that but she can und

This was a great read, each of the stories had me engrossed until the very end. I love the fact that this Anthology is being sold with its proceeds going to a great cause, there is nothing better than reading a good book and knowing that in doing so you are also helping a worthy charity.

COUNTDOWN by Lexi Blake:

OMG. OMG. OMG. I want to spoil this little story so bad, but I won't because you MUST experience the greatness that is COUNTDOWN for yourself! While it is a super short, quick read, it's still very much a sexy, action-packed thrill ride, which is what I've come to expect from Lexi Blake. COUNTDOWN will definitely leave you anxious for future Masters and Mercenaries stories. LIKE OMG I'M STILL LAUGHING. Ben and Magenta are going to be an epic couple, and I NEED their story

WOW!!! What a fantastic bunch of authors!!! To be honest, I had only read two of these authors before but I now have several more I definitely want to read. I definitely enjoyed each and every one of these short but HOT stories!!!

Devoted to Wicked by Shayla Black: I really loved that Karis was able to see that things were not as she had thought and was willing to let Cage back into her life!

However, my review at the moment is for Lexi Blake's Countdown. It was a delicious, sexy, action-packed read! This was a fast read for me, but I devoured it and couldn't put it down. It wasn't what I expected to happen, but it was easy to get lost in. Ben and Maggie had been circling each other for a few years and this mission brought them together, yet again.

If you like them dark and dirty, this boxset is for you! An incredible compilation of some amazing names. This collection of short stories is primarily well written and inciting. Illicit and tantalizing, I was drawn in page after page. For me there were a couple debuts for my repertoire, and I can honestly say I will be looking these authors up. The others I had read and loved, and their stories were no different. My black heart prefers the dark danger, and this one was on point. This was the pe ...more

Cage gets a second chance with Karis when she finds herself stuck in Cancun and needs help getting home.

Because this is a short story, there's not a lot of time for deep character development, but with the given background these two share, the timeline is explained satisfactorily enough to follow along. There's mild suspense, a quick romance, and a definite HEA at the end.
