Pure Alexa Riley gold!

I have said it before and I'll say it again, I could read these stories one right after another. Sweet and safe, with a heaping dose of sugar!

-zero cheating
-no pushing away
-awesome hero
-no violence of any nature
-safe- neither with others after meeting
-good epilogue but I needed much more into the future (which is why it was not 5 stars)

”I want the whole package, Bailey. That’s what I’m after.”

This was easily a 5 star read from me. This was so damn sweet and I had a smile on my face the entire time I read this one! I not only adored the relationship between Bailey and Shawn but also how Shawn scared for her sister Hazel. He took care of them and considered them his family. If that doesn't make you swoon, then I don't know what will.

This was a sweet fairytale with a happily ever after that I highly recommend!

Holy sweetness overload!

Shawn has to be one of the sweetest hero's that I have read in a long, long time. But don't let that sweetness fool you. Hidden behind that sweetness is a possessive, protective alpha who will do anything for what he considers his.

Bailey was a sweetheart and I absolutely adored her little sister Hazel. I swooned with the way Shawn was towards Hazel.

Definitely worth..

4 big stars!

“I want the whole package, Bailey. That’s what I’m after.”



A one hundred percent Alexa Riley ridiculousness with so many cheesy greasy epilogues, a virgin hero, a virgin heroine and a cow named sugar.
Chitra *CJ*
"The Whole Package" is the story of Bailey and Shawn.

A typical AR dystopic ideal universe novella where two strangers meet, have instant attraction and fall madly in love, find out there is double cherry and pop it with enough sweetness to counteract a sugarcane and molasses mix only to find the perfect happiest of happily ever after.

At this point, I read these to kill time, and in hope for an angsty, passionate, taboo-ish read. Alas.

Bailey is awesome, she lives to look after her sister Hazel who has some special needs. Her mother has upped and disappeared leaving her with a house and car in desperate need of some serious repairs although her main priority right now is being able to afford the medication her sister needs. Working on the checkout of a grocery store she is hopeful of getting a promotion and decides to attend the

While neither Bailey nor Hazel are upset about that, Bailey is stressing with covering all the bills, including the medical ones her special needs sister requires.

Shawn, as his mom before him, has worked his way from the bottom of the company to the top, ans has recently taken over leadership from her. As such, he

Adorable!! Not as smutty as many other AR books (kind of a nice change) but still a delightful story if you love heroes who swoop in and make lives better and heroines who are doing everything they can to take care of those they love!

My heart is a big ball of mush. This was the sweetest story ever. I mean could Shawn get any more perfect? To know where the idea of this story came from makes it that much more sweeter. I'm gushing over this book. Love the bond between sister, I'm very close to mine. I love that he not only loved Bailey, but he truly love her sister too. She wasn't just a responsibility, he made her apart of everything. So in love with this one, I know I say that every time. But this one has that based on a tru ...more

Pure Alexa Riley...insta-everything

Bailey and Shawn were all kinds of sweet together. It wasn't as hot as some of her other books. Bailey's sister, Hazel, was nothing but light and goodness and smiles. (view spoiler) Nice epilogue to finish it off.
Sep 16, 2018 rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition

What I liked - Almost everything. I love stories when both characters are virgins, or at least not slutty. Hazel was the best. I love how Shawn was with her.

What I didn't like - The main issue I have with this book is that there were a couple inconsistencies. I also saw a few errors.

There was something missing in The Whole Package. I can't exactly put my finger on what it was, though. I just wasn't feeling the chemistry between main characters, I guess.

I haven't read an AR book in a while. I forgot how sweet and hot and sexy the Heros are. And this one was no different

Shawn was just freaking dreamy. What wasn't there to love about this story. Sweet, insta-love, hot alpha male and a heroine that your heart will just break. What always gets me is when there is a heroine that goes out of her way to take care of her family. And this be will just have you crying your eyes out. Shawn made me fall in love with him from the start and this story will h
April Symes
This was sweet fairytale of a read. Shawn makes for a hunk of a hero while Bailey is a sweet, sassy heroine. This is one awesome, classic Alexa Riley read that is heavy with the sweetness, not as much on the smutty factor but still a beautiful, and sweet love story that will have you rooting for the main characters. It is a very good romance story that has the romance and insta-love factor. This is a story to be savored page by page. AR has another classic hit on their hands.

My rating: 4.7 stars
The Whole Package is a beautiful love story that stole My heart completely!
The Romance between Bailey & Shawn is sweet sexy N totally swoon worthy!

This book means a lot to me as I have a Special Needs little brother who is my heart so I really connected emotionally with the relationship between Bailey & Hazel it is a forever kind of love that these characters share much more than just sisters. Bailey is a protector, mother and best friend!

I absolutely devoured this book and can't wait
