One of my favorite Alexa Riley stories...

I am always happy when Alexa Riley delivers my favorite things! This was packed full of OTT alpha behavior, instalove and it was perfectly safe!

-no cheating
-no violence of a sexual nature
-no pushing away
-OTT protective alpha hero
-great epilogue 6 months and 10 YEARS out! That's how done!

It's Time... Yes, Time to partake in a quick read from Alexa Riley. As with all of the books, they are set mainly in Today's World but are seriously Fantasy based in how everything happens and plays out. We all know these are books not reflecting Real Life... or at least not mine, hahahaha
But I digress...

For this story we have a model who has risen to fame and is wanted by everyone. Mila has been modeling since she was 5. Her mother made

Considering how much I loved the movie Bodyguard, which is one of my fav (minus that sucky ending), Alexa Riley pick up the theme and raised the romance, steam and HEA to sky high levels! The best of the Bodyguard vibes, but with the most deliciously perfect ending! Serious swoon worthy Hero and sweetest of Heroines! All the Bodyguard Stars! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

FBI and model smut?! MEOW GIMME!!

"Pretty Girl" is the story of Mila and Jax.
"Beauty and the Beast" meets "The Bodyguard" in this AR novel, where a young model gets a bodyguard to protect her from a stalker, but instead finds her soulmate.
-Nice banging?
-Scarred hero
-Possessiveness/ jealousy
-HEA with epilogue
Another addition to their sugary trope of devoted heroes, and a good break from my shitty day so far.

4 Cute, easy fast read

A model and a body guard. Lots of lead up. Lots of possession. One virgin, one crazy stalker and a bunch of humping. Very entertaining for an hour.
I really liked one.

Mila is a top model but she has a stalker. And this time it’s not your run of the mill stalker. This time it’s serious.

Jax is ex FBI and he takes on the job of her new bodyguard. But one look and he knows she’s going to be his.

It’s Alexa so you know how it goes but it’s good.
" 3 Stars"

This was a sweet short story. With a possessive alpha male Hero and an innocent heroine as usual. I enjoyed it. It was a typical cute and hot AR story!

P.S. Love the cover! AR's covers are getting better and better!!!
Short sweet and cheesy. Romantic, obsessed hero and adorable heroine. Cute epilogue with 4 kids. Another winner by Alexa Riley. Short but sweet.

😍😍😍😍 loved it , so cheesy ❤
3.5 stars.
Predictable but enjoyable smutty read .Borrowed as KU.
Why I didn’t like this:

- Insta-lust
- Insta-love (I love you is said at 20? 25? %)
- Virgin
- Overprotective alpha male who is cold and distant but falls deeply in love with the girl within seconds
- Viiiiirgiiiiiin
- Stereotypical “hot” guy: one big chunck of bulging muscle, massive snake, overprotective, bossy,...
- Really hot chick with a full rack and a perfect body and did I mention she’s a pure, sweet, innocent, pristine virgin?
- cum, and even worse: cumming (-shrudders-) is used constantly

OMG! I loved this books so hard! Mila is a model who has had enough. Jax is the bodyguard hired to protect her during her latest stalking incident. SO hot, so sweet, and so perfect! Another must read by Alexa Riley!

Oh, and Jax was so alpha and protective. I loved him!

I received an ARC for an honest review.

This was a cute quick read about Mila and her new bodyguard Jax. In true Alexa Riley fashion there was insta love, alpha male, and a smutty good time. Their chemistry was off the charts and I loved how protective he was of her. Alexa Riley has been killing it with the new releases lately!

umm just really not for me 2*

I suspect fan's of AR writing will like this story but I found it to be only just barely tolerable. And the plot was horrible.

Him: I have met this very pretty girl for about 20 seconds and now I will be pushy about sexual contact and plan our marriage for as soon as possible. Oh and I would prefer she give up her very high profile career.

Her: I am a virgin and I am all good about man I just met having his way with me while at the same time keeping secrets from me and

Mila is 20 years old and one of the highest paid supermodels in the world. She was discovered when she was five years old and for the past fifteen years she's been working her ass off. She promised herself she wouldn't be a high maintenance diva like some other models are and because of it she really doesn't have any friends in the industry. She is way too nice and lets her mom, agent, publicist and the photographers push her around. She's never had a boyfriend, in fact she's never really gone o ...more

This had little more action and angst than normal Alexa Riley book. Overall an enjoyable one.

There’s quite a few errors in this one, usually it doesn’t bother me but for some reason they bugged me reading this.

But that said still a brilliant AR 😊

I've always been a huge fan of Alexa Riley and her hot, steamy, instant love short stories and the long ones too ;) and again I wasn't disappointed by reading her latest, "Pretty Girl". This was an amazing story, at least for me because it portrayed how you can have it all; the fame, the money, the people around you that act as though they're truly your friends but aren't, and at the end, you'll feel all alone and that's how Mila felt. Sometimes, you can't even count on your own family because t ...more
First of all, the cover are so beautiful! Second of all, Oh what a steamy insta love-story between our Bodyguard Jax and our beautiful Model Mila.

Alexa Riley is an auto-buy author for me- love their (Alexa Riley are two authors that are best-friends) works so much- and "Pretty Girl" (Jax always calls Mila Pretty Girl) had the best epilogues ever..¤ Yeah Mila and Jax has both more than succesful marriage ahead with them being so besotted in each other.

Mila is used to attention. Being discovered at a young age and then having a modeling career will do that to you. It's part of the job and she accepts that. However, the kind she's been getting recently feels personal...and dangerous. She needs help and that realization will change her life in more ways than one.

Jax, former FBI, is at loose ends after retiring following an accident that left permanent marks...literally. He's relaxing, enjoying his quiet time at home, or so he claims, but when a
