Curves Ahead

Everyone knows appearances can be deceiving, and in my case, even I’ve been fooled.

The last thing I need is immature man-child, Alexander Bennet, trying to smile his way into my pants. I hate everything about him; his stupid smirk, his rumbling chuckle, and the way butterflies riot in my stomach when he aims them at me. Our sparring matches go from maddening to

Let's start off by saying this is a brand new author for us.
We really enjoyed the main characters as we instantly loved Kristen and Alex also Ben and Alister but, we really loved Alex's entire family too !

We thought the story was fun and made you laugh and it was also emotional and haunting as Kristen has nightmares that haunts her but, she can not make heads of tails of them.

The chemistry between this couple were super hot sometimes even fan worthy.

I really enjoyed the story because it had such

CURVES AHEAD follows LEARNING CURVE and I'm not sure if this is a duet or a series or two stand-alones, but they are interconnected by common characters (loved seeing Ben and Alister again) and a thread that weaves between both. I knew Kristen was going to be a bada$$ when I first met her in LC and I waited patiently to read her story. Oh, what a story it is.

I do not want to give anything away so I'm simply going to say: This is a story that is complex and simple and joyous and heart wrenching

Oh, wow! This book... incredible, intense and emotional. Tragic and heartbreaking.

Andi Jaxon is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her writing is magical and she is not afraid to cross boundaries of any kind. That's right.....she goes there! I'll warn you now that this book is NOT a fluffy romance! It is gut-wrenching, angsty and suspenseful. I'll also warn you this book is heavy on triggers. While the most graphic of the abuse stems from memories, that won't matter to your heart. You

Andi Jaxon has a way with putting you in a Dark Place and Swooning you at the Same Freakn Time!! I LOVE the way her WICKED MIND WORKS in Her World Of Words!!

CURVES AHEAD was No Exception and I DEVOURED this PHENOMENAL Book to the Last Drop!!
Alex and Kristen's Storytelling was Such an ADVENTURE and BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN with a Side of Darkness that I DID NOT SEE COMING!! But

This book is suspenseful and deals with a heavy subject matter but I promise you if you take a chance on this book it will take you on an unforgettable journey. Alexander appears to not take life seriously and is all about having fun times and not getting serious with anyone. Kristen is plagued by haunting nightmares and stuck in a past that she doesn't fully understand. The two couldn't be more opposite but due to their connection with Ben and Alister from the first book, they have no choice ...more

This is the first book I’ve read by Andi Jaxon and I already know I’ll be reading more! I was immediately drawn into the story and couldn’t put it down. Alex is so caring and selfless even though he tries to act like a playboy. Kristen’s history broke my heart but I loved how Alex took care of her and made her feel safe with him. You won’t regret reading this one!

This was an amazing and emotional story. So many twists and turns kept me enthralled throughout the entire book. I am so glad that Alex and Kristen finally let their guards down with each other. Truly touching read!

The blurb is deceitful! No warning that my gut would be ripped out due to all the trauma! Geeezus Andi! Give a girl some warning next time if she needs Kleenex handy.

This book doesn’t turn out like you think. There isn’t anything you can bank on except the love between Alex and Kristen being amazing. Everything else will completely stun you and throw you off.

Great book! There are some hard scenes so be warned. It’s worse than what Ben went through so far warning.

Andi Jaxon thank you for making my wish come true, I said after reading Leaving Curve that Alexander and Kristen needed their own book, just didn’t realize I was going to get a 2 for 1!

Warning: If you have triggers about abuse then this is not the book for you.

Alex has a reputation; he is a playboy but underneath the fun and adventurous layers he is a man all about helping his community and giving back. Kristen has always been the rock, when the rock starts to crumble a life time of secrets

Have you ever read a book that pushed you to your emotional limitations? One that took you to the edge of uncontrollable sobbing before restoring your faith in humanity? Curves Ahead is all of those things. Alex and Kristen are the perfect blend of enemies to lovers, dark romance and hints of brother's best friend-ish. Their lives, their interactions and their eventual love is what Tim Burton dreams of.

Curves Ahead is an intense, suspenseful, emotional, swoon worthy roller coaster ride. No joke. This book had my emotions all over the place.

This book isn’t going to be for everyone. There are things that could be triggers, so proceed with caution when starting this one.

I am no stranger to Andi Jaxon’s books and honestly have loved every single one of them. If you have read Learning Curve you’ll recognize the main characters of this story. The heroine is Kristen, who is Ben’s best friend, and

Kristen & Alex ... heartbreakingly beautiful

Andi Jaxon's ability to write books that bring out a myrid of emotions is incredible. In CURVES AHEAD my heart felt as though it wnt through the wringer ... it was broken, repaired, devastated and felt immense love. It was all worth it.

CURVES AHEAD is the story of Kristen Collins and Alexander 'Alex' Bennet, who were introduced in Learning Curves. You'll be happy to read that Alister and Ben are also featured in this book.

This story starts out as a typical enemies to lovers type of story. Kristen doesn’t like Alex one
bit and he is definitely busy getting it on with every woman he wants. The first third of this story sets up the animosity and attraction between these characters, but we are reminded that something is brewing, something that causes Kristen to be fearful. The constant battle against the attraction between these two does get old when sometimes the sarcasm becomes rather hurtful and immature

Started out confusing but ended up invested! After years of feeling that she didn’t fit in with her family and sick of meeting their expectations, Kristen decides to move out and start living her life for herself and follow her dreams and passions. With the move, she starts to see an increase in her recurring nightmares and as she starts to dig into them, the revelation that comes is shocking. Alex is her best friend’s brother in law and known as a total ladies man. Due to his past, he focuses ...more

Kristen Collins needs to stand up against family pressure. Alex Bennet is a man with a big heart. After first meeting these two characters I knew I was going to love where this author was going to take both her characters and us.

There were times where I couldn’t help it - I had to laugh. There were times where my heart gets involved. We have a secondary character that Ms. Jaxon took the time to create and I fell in love with him at the same time Kristen did. Then there were

My heart still hasn't stopped racing since finishing this book! I love reading romance and my favorites include angst and a bit of suspense. We are first introduced to this world in Learning Curve, which was the first book in this series. I quickly fell in love with this author and especially her characters. As soon as Alex and Kristen met in the first book, chemistry was immediate. I knew they would be explosive together. Alex always tries to maintain his playboy persona but in reality he is an ...more

This is one book you should just dive into without looking back, thinking about it too much, and just read! There is nothing stopping you and now you have permission to get your read on.

What. Are. You. Waiting. For?

Getting to meet Alexander, Kristen, Ben and Alexi was such a pleasure. This book kept me wanting to get to know more, and curious as to what happened to them when they were very young, the suspense is terrifying, and learning the truth is one thing they aren’t sure if they even want

This book completely blew me away. It starts out as your typical enemies to lovers read but it is so much more. It hit me with so much power. Kristen and Alexander start out rubbing each other up the wrong way before they manage to break through each other's walls.

Kristen though is keeping something secret. Something that is horrifying and that nobody should ever have to experience. At the point that you begin to understand Kristen, the pace picks up a notch and it takes on a journey with so

Curves Ahead was everything that I was hoping for and more. I knew that it was going to be a bit on the darker side, but I had no clue. Andi Jaxon delivers a powerful story that makes you feel exactly what the characters are feeling and can put yourself in their shoes, which for the subject matter is a little terrifying.

No spoilers, but Alex and Kristen hate each other. He sees her as an uptight spoiled little rich girl and she sees him as a playboy that is always laughing and takes nothing

So I went into this book somewhat blind, but it’s easy to figure out who the characters are, what they mean to each other, and what they’ve all been through. If you have any abuse triggers, this is NOT the book for you. If you don’t, then read this story and be prepared for the mind games you’re about to experience.

I was hooked by the possible panic attacks and “is this real”worry that Kristen had, and then Alex and his reactions to her and need to protect her kept me reading for more. Their

I've been waiting to read this story, which seems like forever, and I'm so glad I did. This book has it all. Dual POV, characters you WILL fall in love with, characters from her previous book (Learning Curves m/m romance), page turner, love, romance, suspense....everything. The title of this book says it all. Curves ahead....every time I thought I knew what was going in, Andi tricked me. And I floved it. My emotions were all over the place, and I'm still in awe after finishing it.

And I totally got just what I wanted.... these 2 were not the kind of couple you would see as working out. But you could just tell that when they finally get together it would be explosive!

This was such a suspenseful story that had me on the edge of my seat. So many emotions will steamroll you while you read this book.

Wow, what absolutely amazing book. So much love, heartbreak and happiness.

Andi Jaxon outdone himself again with another amazing book. Another book that you can't put down, he has a way with words.

I just loved all the characters, and seeing all the dynamics between each one.

Alex may seem immature, and not caring even though with his job it seems odd. He has a heart of gold, and really cares about his neighbourhood.

Kristen may of come from a rich background, but it goes to show not everything as

This is the first book I've read by this author and after reading the reviews I was intrigued. It's an interesting story. Plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. The darkness of the plot could be a trigger for many, but it was well thought out and managed to show light on a terrible subject. Loving Alex and Kristen battling it out with humour and sass, they were a perfect couple trying to make a go of things and battling against corruption and evil in the world. A truly wonderful

These two will quickly become your two favorite people and will show you a new kinda hate/love relationship. I really feel like Kristen has no idea what shes in for at first but man does Alex know how to break down her walls.

This book took me on a whole journey of emotions. I so loved the banter between Kristen and Alex, amusing and the simmering tension between them was electrifying! Flashbacks of a traumatic past haunt Kristen and when memories become real and frightening, the level of attachment to the characters increased tenfold for me. A truly gripping story.

From Dyslexic kid with a love of Algebra to a published author, no one is more surprised to find me here, than I am. I love to write about tortured pasts and hot sex, a happily ever after that has to be worked for. My stories tend to be a little dark but with some comic relief, typically in the form of sarcasm.
