Agent Lex Taylor
My assignment—take down human and drug trafficker Miguel Santino and rescue Leyna Martinez, the sister of an outlaw MC member.
One look—that's all it took.
My center of gravity shifted, and I knew. She was going to be mine.
I take down criminals; the rats of society. I eat, sleep and breathe the law, but I'm willing to risk it all—my badge and my life to prote

OMG! This book had my heart in it's hand with an iron fist type of grip and refused to let go!!
If you've read any of The Kings of Retribution MC series, you know that Gabriel who's story we got in The Darkest of Light (Book 2) has a sister named Leyna. This is her story.
Leyna has had a difficult life in her homeland of Cuba, unfortunately things are about to get much worse for her. Without giving away too much of this harrowingly beautiful and tragically heartbreaking story, I will say that it's

I was late to the party when finding authors Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alvarez. But once I started reading their Kings of Retribution MC series, I binged every book of that exciting series. I was hooked! So when I heard Gabriel 's sister Leyna was getting her story with hunky FBI agent Lex I was over the moon!

From the very first meeting you could feel the sizzling connection between Leyna and Lex even though a horrific experience was taking place. Leyna's quiet strength was a balm to the intens

I didn’t think I’d ever love anything quite as much and Sandy and Crystal’s MC series, but I was completely proven wrong. Love Above Law is not only captivating from the very start it’s also one of the most beautiful stories of love ever. Romantic love, family bonds, and all the ups and downs and everything in between, it’s just overflowing in this book. Leyna and Lex have a story that will absolutely blow you away.
Individually both Leyna and Lex are incredible people who from two wildly opposi

You ladies did it again!!

Once I started reading this book I didn't want to put it down! Lex and Leyna may just be my favorite couple so far! I want to read more about them, I want to read what happens to them for the rest of their lives!! Lex was such a strong character it is hard not to love him from the very first page! Hope to see them in another book soon!

I have been anxiously awaiting Lex’s and Leyna’s story since the characters were introduced in the Kings of Retribution Series. Love Above Law brings it all to the table – love, strength, family, and passion with an extra-large side of sexual tension. I love how genuine and true to themselves both characters were. We get to see Leyna’s strength, while Lex shows us his softer side. But make no mistake, he’s ready and willing to do anything for his woman.

Love Above Law is Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alvarez's first book that takes place outside the Kings of Retribution MC world. Although we first meet Alexander "Lex" Taylor and Leyna Martinez in The Darkest of Light, we finally get all the details about her abduction and rescue.
Their insta-love story is nothing short of amazing, hot and full of angst. It's impossible not feel connected with these characters because, after all, who doesn't one a chance in life and love? While Lex is every bit of a
Let's start off by saying these author's are definitely one of my top go to authors for MC romance reads as everything they write are always awesome reads and this current read was just as awesome.

The story itself was suspenseful and heart wrenching in the fact that the Leyna was separated from your family by a whole country as well experiencing the loss of love ones moving on but, also about reconnection and about your past sins coming back to haunt you by effecting those you love getting caugh

I received an ARC for my review.

I absolutely loved this book. There was so much family in this one which was amazing.

I loved that the MC was still in this book but that we were also Introduced to so many new characters.

Leyna was such an amazing and strong character, through all of the turmoil she had endured she still had such a positive outlook and kept a smile on her face. That is something that I think is such an important message.

Lex...oh lex. I loved him so much. He was such an amazing hero

Another hit from these two ladies.
I admit when I started reading, I told myself, well I already know these characters, I know a little of their backstory from the Kings book, but going in depth with both the hero & heroine was truly amazing. Their story was so emotional & the connection they have from that first, very intense meeting, you could feel the attraction coming off the pages. They needed their own book & boy, did they get a good one.

Lex and Leyna are such a hot couple! It was exciting and sexy and hot and full of action!

What to say about Lex? I couldn’t put this book down! Lex and Leyna were a long awaited couple from the moment they were introduced together in Gabriel’s story! I never expected it to be so.... hot. And torturous. And angsty. This book damn near killed me and I want more of our beloved bikers.

You're definitely going to love Lex and Leyna!

You've received glimpses of Lex and Leyna throughout the previous books of the Kings of Retribution series.

This book will make you swoon so hard! You get so much more insight to Leyna's fiesty attitude and her desire to live, along with Lex's utter devotion and drive to protect.

This is one book you do NOT want to miss out on!

Lex isnt one to chicken out the man likes to stay close to his woman, "you know better than to even suggest some *** like that, Leyna. Where you go, I go. I'm not worried about your brother or his friends." I liked this book, I loved that Lex was protective.

Love love loved Love Above Law it can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the Kings of retribution Mc or reading the darkest of light this takes place around the same time and it's about the heroines brother . I'm such a huge fan of Sandy Alvarez and Crystal Daniels these two really know how to write a story that makes you fall for the characters and the flow of the books you are reading .

WHEN ARE WE GONNA GET DEMETRI AND NIKOLAI’S BOOKS ? This one was okay but honestly it was boring, repetitive, and predictable. If you’ve read the Kings of Retribution MC Series than you will recognize that the h is the younger sister of Gabriel, the Enforcer for the MC. Lex Taylor is an FBI agent in Seattle, he has four younger sisters and his family is very close knit. He’s working to take down Miguel Santino, a horrible man who traffics women and drugs. Leyna is 23 years old, she lives in Cuba ...more

This series never disappoints. Leyna was a strong heroine and Lex was all alpha and sexy. I was intrigued about these two since Leyna’s brother book and i was not one hit disappointed.

The things Leyna went thru and Lex instant attraction to her were thru the roof. But Leyna was no damsel in distress. It was a slow build and when they finally made it official the fireworks were just wow. They were a dynamic duo and Leyna was not messing around with anyone trying to get in between them; lol that

Ok where do I even begin... These two AMAZING authors have done it again. I'm not even sure this review is going to do this book justice. This book has it all unforbidden love, mystery, and some amazing chemistry between the hero and heroine.

The unforbidden love is for the fact that Leyna is the sister to Gabriel who is in the MC Kings Of Retribution. Agent Lex Taylor is a part of the FBI so do you see the unforbidden part yet. The relationship between the two is a big source of contention betw

Holy cannoli the anticipation of Lex and Leyna’s story! This was the best extension story to The Kings of Retribution MC and was exceptionally delivered. There are so many layers of the book, and it also helped to provide a refresher of previous books and scenarios, as it had been a while since I had read the books that were set around the time of this one. The character growth and development is amazing – both Lex and Leyna grew both as individuals as well as together as a couple. It seemed as ...more

Love Above Law by Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alvarez is the story of Alexander 'Lex' Taylor and Leyna Martinez. This is my first book by these two authors so I am late to the MC Kings Of Retribution series. I do wish that I had read the other books first, but that is just a personal preference because I enjoyed this one so much. This book can be a standalone book. Lex is a FBI Agent working to take down a drug and trafficker name, Miquel Santino. When the President of the Kings of Retribution MC ...more

Where to begin.... I will start with saying I loved Lex and Leyna. This was a can't put down read. We got to see old friends from The Kings of Retribution series. We met Lex and Layne in the Kings books. The authors have done themselves proud with this book. The characters are well developed and make us "care" about their story. There is no back and forth about the feelings of the H/h. They want to be together. I liked that aspect a lot!! Leyna is strong willed and Lex lets her be herself. He is ...more

This is the next book by Sandy and Crystal in the Kings of Retribution series, although it doesn't take place in linear order. It is going back in time to when Gabriel's sister is kidnapped in Cuba and brought to America to be sold into sex slavery by the big bad drug dealer that wants Gabriel to do him a favor. A group of FBI agents have been tracking said drug dealer for quite a while, so it is not too surprising when the sister and one of the FBI agents meet and strike up a friendship. I real ...more

Worth the wait! This book was amazing. I love Lex and Leyna. This book had some major build up and it was totally worth it! There was a lot of tension and then it was explosive. I love that we got a lot of insight into our past Kings of Retribution characters also!! Lex was patient, kind and sweet Alpha me and I loved how he cared for Leyna. The story line was great it sucked you in from the beginning. Can’t wait for what’s next!!!!

Absolutely captivating and a great page turner! Couldn’t not get enough of lex and boy is he hot. Simply fabulous storyline and great character build couldn’t be more pleased with this story and the details. Page turner and definitely should read in one sitting. Love be how it links to the stories but definitely can read as a standalone without loosing any of the plot. Not wants you to go back and reread the other characters’ stories. Truly great

I have so many feelings about this book. I LOVED it. Lex and Leyna were amazing together. Lex was swoony AF, even with minimal word usage "To you I'm Lex." I loved seeing parts of their introduction from the other books but from their perspective.
The only thing I will say. I wish there was more. It didn't necessarily feel rushed, but I felt like it could have had more meat on the bones. Some things happened so fast, the time jumps, etc. I loved them and I wish we had more of them.
