Nothing like this ever happens to me…until it does.

Skye Devereux
I believe in soulmates, happily ever after, and love at first sight.
Even if it only happens in the romance novels I read.
But in real life, I’m the ugly duckling to my sister’s swan.
The nerd to her popular girl.
The one who’s easily forgotten and overlooked.
And that’s okay. I don’t mind.
Or at least it didn’t

One of the sweetest most heartwarming books I’ve read this year! Because of Logan packs enough swoony goodness to have even the coldest of hearts melting within minutes. I can’t count the number of times I paused while reading just to savor the way I felt as Logan and Skye fell so hard for each other. It was pure bliss! I was astounded by how much and how quickly I loved these characters.
Every page I found more to love. Whether it was Skye’s innocent and open heart or Logan’s beautifully romant

So I think the main thing that I didn’t like was Skye’s twin, River. She was just loud and obnoxious and I didn’t care for her.
I’ll be coming back for future books though.

I predict that the next book will be Skye’s twin and Logan’s brother. Which will be nice to see. I was dying for some Liam in this.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Because of Logan by Erica Alexander is book One in the Riggins U Series. This is the story of Skye Devereaux and Logan Cole.
Skye and River are fraternal twins and each are so opposite of the other in more than just looks. River is the beautiful outgoing sister that everyone seems to be attracted too..if not even drawn to her. So Sky has lived in her shadow being the calm, bookish, quite and stable on of the sisters. What Skye doesn't see is the beauty she has on the inside and outside too. When

Because of Logan is a very well written book with a storyline that most people have lived or will go through to some degree in their lifetime. The author has written about characters that we can all relate to and the story is told in such a way you’ll feel like you’re right there watching the wondrous events unfold right before your eyes. Simply Wonderful.

Finding your one and only is not always an easy road. Especially when your past relationships have caused pain, mistrust and heartbreak. All

What a cute, funny, and romantic love story “Because of Logan” was! I totally enjoyed this romance by Erica Alexander! Oh, and great name by the way! That’s my oldest daughter’s name. I thought that Logan and Skye had excellent chemistry! Skye so often questioned her worthiness of Logan. Why would a guy like him be interested in a girl like her? But, what she didn’t realize is that she was a strong, confident and beautiful young woman under that shy quiet demeanor. And, poor Logan came from the ...more

Very sweet and romantic. I liked the touch of drama but the honest resolution of it. It took me a bit to get used to the third person perspective but sticking with the story was worth it. I’m looking forward to reading the next one.

The thing that can make me so mad is when I'm trying to read a book and someone keeps interrupting me... I can get a little crazy so if you want to still be my friend... Don't do it. Lol
I've been reading non stop for the last couple of years and I loved every second of it.
When I get the chance to read a book from a new author my heart feels like its about to burst.

This one touched my heart so many times while reading it.

Skye has always been in the background,  the quiet twin who was always overshadowed by the other one.
When she meets Logan she starts to believe more in herself and wants to be with him and it is awesome to see her come out of her shell.
Logan has a past he is not proud of. His family never showed love of they even knew what it was , so he is totally blindsided with what he feels for Skye and boy does he know how to romance her.

Every girl needs a Logan in their life. He is such a confidence booster. Skye has spent her life in the shadow of her sister, believing that she is prettier, more confident and getting all the attention from men. Until Logan. He doesn't take a second glance at her.

Logan pulls Skye over with a broken tail light after she has picked up her drunk sister from a party. Skye is not exactly dressed for an outing at night being in her pyjamas. But Logan is drawn to her in a way that he never has to anyo

Because of Logan is phenomenal! It is so cute, fun, fast paced and absolutely addicting!

I love the way Skye and Logan meet. Logan, Hot Cop, pulls over Skye and its instant sparks and connections. From there, their love just blossoms into something so beautiful.

Skye, the reserved of her and her twin River. She never felt like she was beautiful enough. It's quite sad, she has basically been shown her whole life that River is the one people want and gravitate towards. This has caused her many hear

DNF because the book was making my heart ache. I felt like the attraction between the two was too rushed and unrealistic--they practically had a hard on for each other the moment they met. Literally. The heroine was aroused the moment she saw him which was so utterly ridiculous considering the situation when they met.

Also I felt it's such a cop out on the author's part to use the insta attraction trope to further the story. I mean they celebrated her birthday together when they were practically

This book was so beautifully written.

The story line and characters were something that you could relate to. The author wrote about real life issues and the reality of dating and the hurt that relationships can cause. You watched Logan and Skye go from not trusting in relationships at all to slowly building themselves up by being there for each other, loving one another. It was truly a beautiful story about finding yourself with someone else and then in yourself.

An amazing story about finding your one true love and overcoming the hurdles that you have placed on yourself. Hurdles that both of the lead characters have placed on themselves due to experiences that each have either had to have faced or are continuing to face. When that one special person captures your eye and you feel it deep down inside of you, are you able let those hurdles fall away or do you let them ruin the beauty that you have found? Can one person's love for you build you up so much ...more

All of her life Skye Devereaux has been the quiet, shy twin to her sister River. Logan Cole is a local police officer and one night he stops her when she is out late to pick up her twin from a party in her night cloths and bunny slippers. Because of Logan is a sweet romance with just the right amount of sexy and tells how Logan and Skye are immediately attracted to each other and despite insecurity and family issues find a way to a happy ending. I loved the humor, the sassy and protective twin s ...more

I have so much love for Logan and Skye! At first I thought the book was just a sweet love story and I was ok with that. But then it turned into so much more than that. Both Skye and Logan have past relationships that affect how they interact and deal with current relationships. Also Logan has family issues that haven’t been resolved. They try to find peace in each other to overcome their pasts but multiple events get in their way. Overall this is a great story about two people who aren’t quite w ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this cute college read. The author wove an amazing tale of sweet characters and believable plot. This is the first book in the Riggins University series by this author, and my first book by Ms. Alexander. It's full of funny one liners and well developed emotions.

This book takes us along as college student Skye comes into her own, while finding love with Logan. It's a well written plot about love, personal growth, friendships and family. I enjoyed the main theme of Skye comin

Skye Devereaux has always been okay living in the shadow of her outgoing twin, as she's content to just stay home & read a good book rather than go to parties like other college students. But the night that she goes to pick up her twin, she meets the super hot, Logan Cole, when he pulls them over. And this is one time that she hopes that someone doesn't pick her twin over her, as she feels a strong attraction for the sexy cop. Logan hasn't had an interest in a woman in a long time after leaving ...more

I absolutely adore this book! It's the first book I've read of this author's and it for sure won't be my last! This story made it so easy to visualize Logan and Skye, to see and feel every moment they had together. I read it in one sitting because I could not put it down. I'm very excited to read more books related to Logan and Skye...even ones not. Lol This author is a must read!

I am new to Erica Alexander’s books and now I am running to get Because of Liam.

The story of Logan and Skye is sweet and full of loving moments. Both of them have a different background, their parents are the opposite and their social circles while growing up too, but the love and trust they have with their siblings is something both of them have in common.

Logan doesn’t know what it is to have loving and supporting parents, all the good in his heart comes from his grandparents. His choice of j

I loved this story! Something about it grabbed me right from the beginning and I was hooked.
The characters are beautifully developed, the storyline solid and it takes a few nice twists and turns, which kept me fully engaged.
Skye, a college senior, has always lived in the shadow of her beautiful fraternal twin, River. Until she meets “Hot Cop” Logan, that is.
Logan is an amazing male protagonist - kind, compassionate, loyal and charming, yet not without his own share of baggage from the past. S

So I wasn't expecting to be sucked into this story as much as I did. I mean, I had to force myself to put down the kindle and sleep. I just wanted to keep reading all night. I so fell in love with Skye, Logan and of course River. I wanted to jump inside their world, that's how invested I was.
I loved how much different she made Skye and River. Skye is quiet, smart and reserved twin. She's fine with living in her sisters shadow until it brings her to meet Logan.

This book was such an emotional ride. Two broken people that find each other and help each other heal. Logan is a police officer that works through holidays because he has no one to spend them with. He isn't close to his parents and his only sibling is in the army and currently deployed. Skye feels insecure against her twin sister River. Everyone believes River is the prettier twin every since they were children. Hearing and seeing people favor h

Honest review

Not your typical love story. It all started picking her drunk twin up from a party and driving through a fresh yellow light. Skye looks up to see flashing red and blue light and thinks great this is my life, my luck. This where her luck changes and her luck truly begins. Really great book and some real lessons in Love.

When you open Because of Logan you may think you are getting another romance, you are but you are also getting so much more! You get romance, but you see love healing in the best way. You see love build confidence in someone who has none. Skye has always felt on the outside, inferior to her twin sister. Her twin is beautiful, outgoing, witty, and confident. Skye doesn't feel beautiful next to her, but she still holds a close relationship with her sister. Neither is resentful or conceited. They b ...more

This was a really cute read. It was just what I needed- something sweet, nothing overly dramatic, no tears. I'm not one who normally would gravitate toward New Adult/YA, but I'm glad that I did.

Skye has always been in the shadow of her twin sister. She does not mind that, as she'd rather spend her evenings studying or reading. One night, she gets pulled over by a very handsome police officer. Logan and Skye hit it off from the beginning. They're sweet together.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit!
