Damon is a man that wants to keep to himself and be as private as possible but with living in a small town as he does that’s hard to achieve especially with Kendra always around trying to as close as possible. Elise is new to town and is trying to mind her own business until a particular bad boy catches her eye, then all bets are off. This story is intense and will have you on the edge throughout the book. If you’re looking for an action packed, suspense filled read that has a great blend of rom ...more

Damon is this rough and tough Alpha that turns all the ladies heads.
Elise is new to the mountain area, and as soon as she spots Damon it was on.
Just with most small towns, there is always a mean girl type.
Her name is Kendra.
Kendra tries to interfere in their relationship.
Definitely family drama as well.
This is a new side to Mr. Wolf, and I live it.

3.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KindleFriendsForever

Romantic suspense is one of my favourite tropes and I thought it was a good idea to jump into this story blind. This author is new to me and I found a lot of good points in this book that makes it a fascinating read.

Elise Morgan is the new girl in Mount Hood, wanting a fresh start. She’s a city girl who is still getting the feel of the small town vibe where everybody knows everyone’s business. When she comes across Damon,

4 Star Review Damon by Alex Wolf
Damon’s reputation precedes him in the small town of Mt Hood, he calls home. He is totally an alpha who attracts the attention of the majority of women. The more he holds himself away from commitment and relationships the more intrigued they all become. However Damon has no intention of becoming involved seriously, that is until he meets Elise.

Elise, who is new to town also falls for Damon.
Of course the path to true love never runs smoothly as Kendra , a local

Mysterious Damon is what all the girls want!

Damon is not looking for love and he doesn't do relationships, keeping very much to himself to the point where no one knows where he lives or what he does. Right now, what he does is to save his father, even if it means breaking a few laws. But Damon's not immune to a woman's charms, especially the new girl in town, Elise. One look across the room and he knew he had to have her. She is in town for a new job, albeit temporary. One look at Damon and she

What do you get when you cross a bad boy with a sweet girl...explosive results 💥

Damon is the talk of Mt. Hood. He's reported to have done some sordid activities. He's also the ladies eye candy. But no one knows the real Damon. Dark, secretive, and sexy as sin but he runs much deeper. But sweet little Elise puts a pep in his step. Timing is everything and unfortunately, Damon is short of that. And Elise is only here for a short time as well.

Elise can't turn off her thoughts or feelings for Damon

She was looking for the quiet life as she waited for her dream job. All he wanted was to save his family and get out of the hole he was in. Total opposites, drawn to one another. She was light and he was darkness.

You’ve got a small town, with a small town mentality, the bad guys coming for what they want and the town’s popular daddy’s girl who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Elise and Damon face all these obstacles once they find eachother. However, nothing deters Elise. She’d risk e

Received as Arc and am reviewing voluntarily.
As with each of Alex Wolf's book, this one is also well written. The plot was a bit too intense for me but I did complete the reading. Much prefer romance to violence. I liked Damon and wanted things to work out for him. The same for Elise. Still love your Cockiest series best, and looking forward to something similar in the future.

Damon was a quick, very HOT, read! Damon and Elise’s instant attraction and chemistry was hard for me to believe at first. I’m always skeptical of the stories where the characters fall in love with each other in a day or week. It seems unrealistic, but the way this book was written made you believe in their love. I also loved seeing a little glimpse into a couple of the side characters.
Great, stand-alone book!

In every small town, reputation does count and for Damon it’s no different. Let’s ask all the ladies in town? :)

Although he has no intention of that attention or to become involved... Elise does connect. Some light into his darkness.

Quick read, dangerous hot and intense.

It’s hard to be honest about this one because I really like the author. The truth is, there was nothing I enjoyed about this. The storyline was too far fetched and the characters fell flat for me. They weren’t believable. I will try another book by this author. You can’t knock it out of the park every time.

Dark but with a brilliant light

is a departure from the books that Alex wolf usually writes, this one is a lot darker. But guess what? He's just as brilliant in writing this genre as well. Told in dual POVs, Alex has ensured that Damon will crawl under your skin and be totally unforgettable.

Damon Sanders has a reputation of being a bad boy. He's popular amongst the women of Mt Hood, but he steers clear of commitment and relationships, only making him more of an enticement. Damon has issues

This book had me enthralled from the beginning set on a small mountain town with close knit nosy neighbours nothing gets past anyone but the elusive Damon has them all guessing. A private man with an aura that screams sex and power the woman want him where as the men just want to be him! He keeps his life under lock and key and is quite happy to remain that way until one look from behind the pages of a book and those eyes have him just about on his knees, but he has no time for anyone else just ...more

I have read every book from Alex Wolf and loved them all…except this one. I never really connected with any of the characters. I kept pushing forward, hoping it would hit that point where it all fell into place for me, but I just couldn’t get there. I loved the premise, loved and was excited for where the story could go, loved the drama and suspense. I don’t know exactly what it was, maybe it was Kendra and her clan, the whole high-school mean girls feel. These were twenty-

This is sadly not my favorite book from Alex Wolf. This was a insta love story and it was fast. I enjoyed the storyline and it had a lot of promise. Damon is very mysterious and he fights his demons alone and enjoys being very grumpy. However, he sees Elise when she comes to town and is attracted to her. She has secrets of her own that she's trying to prove herself. They do learn to trust each other, although sometimes I found it hard to connect with both of them.

Elisa Morgan moved from Los Angels to the small town of Mount Hood to work in a clinic while she waited for her dream job in a pediatric hospital in New York. The people seem friendly then she meets the town "social elite" Kendra Wellsworth and her little side kicks. They maybe in their twenties but they act like they are in high school with their snobby mean girl club. Then with one glance her heart raced when she saw a man at the bar.

Damon lives in a small town. Gossip always surrounds him. The preppy high school girls are always around Damon. He can't seem to get rid of these ladies. They are 22 and still acting like the high school mean girls. Either you are with them or you are against them. Damon comes and goes as he pleases. He is here one day and gone the next. All kinds of rumors surround I'm and this small town.

Damon is a man who keeps to himself, as he's not really a people person, but he lives in a small town so it's bit more tricky. Especially since he has the town princess trying to bag him, and as her no one tells her no, he can't seem to get her to leave him alone. Elise is a newcomer, who has caught his eye, though he tries to leave her alone, while he's caught her eye as well, so you already know this bad boy & new girl are in for a complicated ride. See, Damon is a very intense story fille ...more

Bad Boy Damon is the man every girl wants but what happens when he catches the eye of a sweet girl called Elise, a girl who is light where he is darkness, she is water and he is oil and we all know oil and water should not mix !!
Damon has secrets and no one really knows the sinfully hot man who wants to keep his life private a task which isn’t easy in a small town and it gets even harder when Elise moves into town. Elise try’s her best to ignore her feelings for Damon problem

Damon and Elise had that instant connection across the room in the lodge of a small town. Elise was looking for the quiet of a small town after the craziness of LA and Damon was just trying to live his life alone and unnoticed. Neither got what they were looking for, but both found what they needed. Damon is the roughest character in an Alex Wolf book to date and I quite like him, he was a good guy that had to make decision he normally wouldn't to save his family. Elise is one tough cookie who g ...more

This is the first time I’ve read anything by this author and I will be reading more! Once their eyes connected across the room, Damon and Elise, had an instant connection. She was just trying to find a quiet town in contrast to the liveliness and hustle and bustle of LA whilst Damon was just trying to blend in. It’s sad to say while neither of them got what they wanted they sure in the hell got what they needed. All Damon wanted was to save his dad he didn’t expect to fall for the stunning woma ...more

Living in a small town has it’s ups and downs. The upside, good work experience while waiting for her dream job to come through. That’s all Elise was looking for. She didn’t intend to be dragged into the drama queen of the town nor did she think that a man like Damon would have such a strong hold on her.

Damon is all man and more. All he wanted to do was save his dad not fall for the stunning beauty sitting quietly in the lodge. Insta love is a simple way to explain the pull that is Elise and Dam

A suspenseful romance book, Damon is trying to sort out a sticky situation when he sees Elise. I found the unfolding of the story in the first quarter a bit choppy, but the story flows better soon after this point. Damon's portrayal is inconsistent, and Elise gets ensconced in the mean-girl community fairly quickly for someone who is just passing through. I didn't feel like I connected with the characters well-I found a couple of the secondary characters more memorable than Elise.
So while this

This seemed to be quite different from Alex Wolf's other novels and I've got to say that Damon was not for me. I'm not quite sure why, but I found it difficult to finish although I soldiered on!

Despite its length, I don't feel that anything ever properly developed. The last 20% of the book was the best and I'm glad I made myself finish it because I feel that I at least left with a feeling of 'that turned out ok.'

I'm looking forward to what Alex Wolf produces next!

This story is hot. Damon meets girl who wants simple life. He always gets what he wants. He never does relationships, but when he sees Elise, he knows he wants her. Their story grows and gets intense. Another great book by this author!!

This author never disappoints with her books. She creates characters that are real and totally hot. Drama and suspense are evident in this story and they suck you in.

Damon is the mysterious bad boy, Elise is the quiet new girl and Kendra is the not nice queen bee of the town. Damon and Elise have some crazy chemistry but Damon's problems get in the way. I had a hard time with Damon and his past and what he was doing while reading. He was too much of a bad boy and just couldn't get into it. This was a personal issue for me so if you like the leading man to be a bad boy then this book is for you. It was a great read just not my favorite by Alex Wolf.

This was a new side to him, enticing, sizzling and down right hottttttt 🔥

Damon is cocky and that bad boy that always gets what he wants. Elise is looking for a quiet town and a quiet life...

But when Damon catches eye of her shortly after she arrives let’s just it’s all over with from there!!!

I loved this story! And this side of Alex!

Damon was a fantastic story. Wolf just knows how to grab you and pull you into the pages until you stay lost until you read The End. He keeps you with his colorful but realistic characters that you fall in love with. Then the story itself was amazing. Damon and Elise had one struggle after another and with Damon's issuess are so much more but how will the young Elise deal with those. Must read in every way.
