➳A sheriff that takes what he wants, and when he finds the woman that will take his heart,
there is no turning back from making her his...

➳Cole and Catherine have become my ultimate favorite characters by Alexa Riley, and that says something because I love the majority of AR's books and their filthy, but beautiful characters. This story however, was different in a way that makes you attracted to not only Cole but also the backstory that Catherine has had with the issues from her parents.


Alexa Riley at their best! I love a good ol classic Alexa Riley story. This one gave me so many of my favorite things - instalove, possessive alpha. older man/younger woman, hero wasn't a manwhore and had been celibate for years..... it checked a LOT of my boxes!

HERO~ Cole was an amazing hero. He was an all around good guy. He was brave and sweet, he served his country and now his town as Sheriff and boy did he love his momma. Described as the town's golden boy. I picture him as the hu

No one can write about a dick leaking cum better than AR...
But how about slightly older heroines? And maybe one non-virginal for a change???

This is the 2nd book I have tried from this writer(s) and now I know for sure that this was the last.

Alexa Riley books are definitely not for me.

Of course, I like my smut every now and then, but the smut I read must make sense (shouldn't be ridiculous). It must be of some quality work.

Yup, that is what reading Alexa Riley is for me.

Have a so-so day at work...

Terrific... Because Alexa Riley has just published a new book and it is calling out to you.

This had all of the usual elements plus more character development... at least wit

3.5* STARS!

Mini Review:
Lovely cover! The story was longer than usual; have some conflicts. The age gap is quite normal (ten years apart). Quite enjoyable despite some cringe-y moments. Such as, the sheriff is horny when he met the girl for the first time. Sheriff has a raging on while he help her undressing (because she has no underwear. Pft!) but he didn't harass her right away. Insta-love and baby batter as always.
"3,5 Stars"

This was a cute short story. Between a possessive sheriff and a lost, sweet girl trying to survive. I enjoyed it and had a great time reading all the ways they got dirty and hot between the sheets! ;p


P.S The cover is pretty cute!!!

Standard Alexa Riley super smut

Hot cop saves the young girl who is down and out, and on her own. It’s 96% alpha smut, and the other bit is a sweet story, but mainly smut. So if you’re looking for that, then you’ve found the right book.

Dec 25, 2018 rated it it was amazing
I read this as a sort of bedtime story last night and boy, the authors once again delivered!

Catherine has had it rough what with her father's drinking problem and him suddenly disappearing. But never more so than now that his Army checks have stopped coming in (he's a veteran). Since she wanted to avoid the foster system back when she was a minor, she's found ways to stay alive. This is getting trickier and trickier, however - and then a snowstorm hits her town on top of everything.
Luckily, form

Catherine is a poor girl living in terrible conditions. She has no food, no water, no clothes, no shelter. Cole, the town sheriff finds her and helps her and protects her. They fall in love but there is some light angst. Sweet and sexy story with two lovable characters! I loved Cole’s possessiveness. Cat was a virgin and Cole celibate for years. Epilogue with their 2 kids and pregnant heroine was perfection. Another winner by Alexa Riley.

Totally in love with the blurb and this blue hue sweet cover. GIMME!

"Keeping her Warm" is the story of Catherine and Cole.
Lately I have had a bit of disconnect with AR books due to monotony, but finally it has been broken by this one! We had a gorg cover, a good story, drama, evil bitchy OM/OW, a protective hero, a sweet heroine, some good lovemaking, breeding and a HEA with a cute epilogue.
I love that in light of the #metoo movement, the authors decided to talk about sexual assault/bullying

A typical AR read—short, sweet, and smutty!

These books are hard to review because I feel like they can be hit or miss for everyone. For me, given how short it was, I wish there wasn't so much random OP drama and that the focus was more on the couple. But regardless I still really enjoyed this one 😍
April Symes

I absolutely totally completely loved this story!!! This had everything that you come to expect in an Alexa Riley story—insta-love, alpha male hotness, older man/younger woman, dirty steamy hot scenes, innocent sweet virgin and the best thing –HEA.
Catherine was left alone at 16 after her father disappeared on her and she didn’t have anyone to depend on. She had only herself so she made due. She was planning on graduating high school and getting out of the town and moving away since she is now 1

1.How gorgeous is that cover?!
2.How do their books get better and better?

Alexa Riley has done it again! I saw they had a new book out and couldn't read it fast enough. Anytime I want a dose of quick romance with a dash of steamy scenes, I know I can get that from Alexa Riley.

This book did not disappoint me!  I was left smiling like a freakin' idiot at my Kindle. (Thank goodness the Kindle doesn't take screenshots, I would hate to see my face while reading) anywhoo.. I loved our main characters,

Short, sweet, and super duper sexy. The 28 year old “golden boy” sheriff rescues the 18 year old, down-on-her-luck beauty. Naughty but not gross/weird. Perfect, fun story to spend an evening reading. Enjoy!

I’m so disappointed 😔... I don’t like it when the heroine is so young( like high school young) and the hero is 10 years older... it’s kinda sick and I’m not in to that kind of stuff. I don’t know why I keep trying with these authors.

Great addition, I loved it. Little ow/om drama, but it didn't last long, H shut everything down real quick. Great read.

I loved this one. It was sweet, sexy with a bit of drama.
I loved how crazily obsessive Cole was with Catherine. No one going to stop him to be with his girl. But then again, I shouldn't expected nothing else from Alexa.
Cute porn aka classic Alexa Riley, really 3 1/2 stars
