This was a big 'ol pile of sweet sugar, torched with steamy sex scenes- like a creme brulee 😂

If you are a fan of the classic OTT alpha, sugary sweet instalove, and breeding that we have come to expect from Alexa Riley, then you won't be disappointed.

Beau is alpha, bossy, and take charge...He takes his stalking seriously- buying buildings, planting security details, the whole shebang! He finally found someone who could tear him away from his work and change his views on love and marri

As I mentioned earlier... I must check out a program to help with my fascination of these books....Because if one looks too closely at the behavior of the characters, one would worry. However since it is all a fantasy... full of over the top alphas with women who are completely smitten with the way these men can't function without them....then it all falls into place.

This time we have innocent Dove, just months out of high school, who wo

-Virgin heroine
-Hunky hero
-Loads of obsession
-Mild drama
-Saccharine sweet but dirty lovemaking
-Detailed epilogues
I adored the cover and this was a good break from stress for me today.

Wow! It's so sweet! Perfect for Valentine's Day and a perfect read for me. I loved it!

The story is about Beau and Dove.

He's a divorce lawyer and she works at a florist shop. They met at the coffee shop and has been flirting for weeks but he's holding himself back, worried he'll scare her away.

People say he's cold and calculating and he is but not to her. I loved how possessive and obsess he was! He's the perfect OTT alpha.

I also loved the epilogues! (view spoiler)

Be Mine ... Or Else fue un relato simple y totalmente de estilo de estas autoras, admito que esta pareja no es de mis favoritas, el lleva el ser un hombre de las cavernas a un nivel inaguantable y ella ( como la mayoria de protagonistas de Alexa Riley ) es demasiado mosquita muerta, y ese es un rasgo que odio en las protagonistas femeninas.

Para resumir, una historia mas, no destaca ni sorprende. Seguire buscando mas libros de estas autoras que sean como Marriage Material y Her Touch, esas si que

ben niye Riley'leri girmeyi unutuyorum asdfasfds

“I can’t fuck something this pure and sweet.” I rest my forehead on her thigh and think about how bad I want to put my dick in her, but also how innocent this little pussy is. “I don’t want to ruin something so close to heaven.”

bu sefer farklıydı. durum şu: herifimiz görür görmez posess tavırlara girmiyor. tmm ikisi için de hala instalove ama instasex değil. oğluşumuz kızı korkutmak istemiyor. çok da beklemiyo gerçi asdfasdfs

"But suddenly I need to stamp out my name inside her pussy."

Beau’s dad gave me the creeps, I dunno why exactly because he was supposed to be a good guy but he skeeved me out.

The rest of it was meh. I don’t really take AR seriously, they’re light and fun and usually dirty AF. But this one was meh. It started out strong then I dunno, fizzled.

Still cute though! I hope they write Tia’s story <3

I love this one!!!

I love how Beau is portrayed. He's a bada$$ lawyer and is built like a football player. He's usually gruff and tends to have a surly disposition. And then there's Dove, who's adorable and bright and sunshine and innocent. I love that Beau makes an effort to smile around her and take things slow with Dove so as not to scare her away. This story is totally like Beauty and the of my favorite fairytales.
Short,cute and steamy Alexa Riley never disappoints! The way the big cold brute of a hero were so marshmallow when it came to his sunshine heroine was adorable! "Be Mine... Or Else" with its sugary sweetness is a novella that i will certainly re-read again in the future!

*insta love (of course)
*OTT jealous smitten possessive hero
*adorable virgin heroine
*safe with a HEA
*and some Valentino!

Yeah i just adored this one!

Great read. There is a slight ow misunderstanding, but it is fixed quickly. No other ow/om drama. My kind of story, when I smile all the way through.

Dove is enamored with Beau. Their paths somehow cross every day and though she thought they were flirting back and forth, she now has doubts since it's never gone any further than that in the weeks since they met. Plus, she knows he's at least a decade older than her, and as a lawyer is out of a florist shop employee's league.

Beau has been enthralled with Dove since first laying eyes on her, so much so that he even has her watched, umm protected *wink* that is, by his people. See, Beau is quite

Dove está colada por un hombre que conoció en la cafetería. Ellos han coincidido en ella desde entonces pero, aunque se quedan mirando el uno al otro, ninguno da un paso más.
Beau está totalmente obsesionado con Dove, ella es como un rayo de sol y quiere tenerla. Han estado durante semanas jugando a los tímidos, pero se acabó. San Valentín está a la vuelta de la esquina... Es un buen momento.

Mini Review:
I really love the cover but couldn't find the appeal from this story. It supposed to be sweet and sugary. But I just found another hero with stalker-ish attitude. Totally creepy even you're not rich and handsome, right? The girl, Dove is too naive and like a nun. I'm more into her gothic roommate. Beau is only smile for Dove. He loves her immediately and she's the one for him. With unnecessary drama, I found the story irritated me. Still, they ends with a lot of babies.

Adorable Dove and rugged heartthrob Beau are simply lovely together.

A few distracting grammatical errors (proofreading would be a good idea), but overall an adorable and heartwarming romance. Three and a half stars.

I know some people don't like the instalove/instalust stories. But you know what sometimes you just need that story that will have everything happen

Beau and Dove met at a coffee shop, each one attracted to the other. Beau was a divorce attorney, and being in the job that he has he is a bit jaded. Dove works in a flower shop and the two of them has been flirting with each other every morning, but nothing more happening. Until Beau decides he's done waiting. Finally he has found someone

A Valentine's treat story by AR... what else to ask?? Sweet filled with "fireworks" and lovely characters, Beau and Dove won my heart from the beginning of their storyline... Especially Beau with his persistence and his actions, such a possessive/caveman character (I'm in love). As for Dove well she is perfectly suitable for Beau with her sweetness and her sassiness.. the ideal match for each other!

It is a quick read but with the perfect "ingredients" to keep you satisfied, so of course, recomm

Just in time for a super sweet instant love, love story. This is a really fun read and I enjoyed reading it.

Beau, is a divorce lawyer and is well known for just that. His clients are extremely happy with his results. Some are more then happy. From the first time he saw, Dove, when he was getting coffee, he has been obsessed with her.
Dove has been going to the coffee shop every morning with the hope that she will see Mr. Venti (Beau) before going to work.
