Five stars for Alex Drake!



Another great book in the Alex Drake series! Alex and Madison have returned and this time we find out more about the man of mystery. Alex has a background that we don’t know much about from the previous books, but in this book we find out more about his past.

The story uses flashbacks to show how Alex, Paco and Madison’s brother Jack we’re put together as a covert team. The story also goes into how Alex learned to be so good in bed and how much of a player he was prior t

4 Divine Drake Stars ⭐

In the next instalment of the Alex Drake saga, not only do we catch up with the loved up couple, we finally gain insight and answers that we've been waiting for. If you are a fan of office romances filled with passion, intrigue and suspense, start from the beginning with Access and Exposed.

In Burned, Madison Taylor should be elated with her recent engagement to mega gorgeous and extremely wealthy Alex Drake, especially with the sizable rock she's flaunting. But it's all ov

*I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Explosive! One of the first words that pops into my mind while writing this review! Edge of my seat suspense. Anxiety for the unknown (Jordan Stone). Smoldering desire between Alex and Madison which leapt off the pages. So, much happens here I am finding it difficult not to reveal to much.

Excellently written storyline. Alex and Madison were created with love and much preparation. I can feel the authors care and craft c

Once again Lexxi has delivered a quality read that will draw you! The suspense just about killed me, and I was hooked. The attention to detail was incredible and she left nothing out.

Madison and Alex, the intense attraction between them seems to have gotten hotter. The answers I got only wet my appetite, sure we got some closer but I feel more is coming for this pair. And not just them Paco also.

The secondary characters and the direction that the story went was intriguing, the secretive li

I have been a fan of Lexxi’s since I first read Access last year!

Burned is book 3 in the Alex Drake series, and I think it’s my favorite!!! I love the suspense that Lexxi has throughout her story, yet there is still plenty of steamy scenes.

When I started this series, I had no idea how complete of a man Alex Drake would turn out to be. In Burned it showed a lot of what shaped him and I loved every minute of it!

I don’t want to give spoilers... so I’ll just end it with 5 amazing bright stars!! I

Perfectly Written!!

I love Lexxi James books 1 & 2 in this series. Book 3 starts immediately with action and suspense.
Madison and Alex are engaged and madly in love.
They still have unanswered questions regarding her brother Jacks mysterious death while serving in the military z .
The author did an excellent job writing it!
Besides Alex and Madison, there are other interesting characters in this storyline, and the narrative and attention to details are great. Lots of unanswered questions and vindic

Third book in the series and continues book 1 and 2 with Alex and Madison now engaged. Burned is steaming hot without a doubt, but now Madison is trying to find out what really happened to her brother Jack. We get to understand more about Alex and his background as well as meet Jordon Stone. There's a lot of going back and forth in Burned which makes it a little difficult at times to follow but still a good read.

An exciting storyline and very suspenseful.
Alex and Madison’s passion for each other gets stronger. A little of Alex’s past is revealed.

Wonderful writing. Alex and Madison are well developed characters and make a great couple. The secondary characters are also well thought out and make great additions to the story.

I love this book and this series. The story is intriguing and the suspense intense.
I highly recommend this excellent book!

I hope everyone can see that Burned is part of The Alex Drake Series, so they understand it's not the book you start the series with. It may sound like I'm judging, and I am for real, because I've actually seen reviews from readers who start in the middle of a series, then give the book a bad rating because they don't know what the hell is going on. I mean C'MON MAN! So my point is, Burned is Book 3 so YOU MUST READ Access (Book 1) and EXPOSED (Book 2) FIRST AND EVEN IN ORDER WOULD BE THE BEST. ...more

So before I start this review, I'd highly encourage you to read the first two books in this series.It's important to figure out the characters and see how Alex and Madison fall in love.
In this book we find out more on Alex and how he went from AJ to Alex. Who Jordan Stone is and what power does she hold? She is very persuasive and knows how to use to sex to get what she wants. Madison,mostly but Alex is still there is her target. There's some closeness between Madison and Jordan to rile Alex up

The 3rd book is just WOW! The perfect sequel to the love story between Alex and Madison. We see in the story that the writer has military background.
Love between Alex and Madison is stronger more and more everyday although old flame from the past appears.
The 3rd book is packed with action and dangerous situations. Madison is trying to prove her brother's innocence with Jordan's help and she succeeds. We also find out how A. J. become Alex. In the end everything comes into it's place.

I am absolutely in love with this series and I can't wait to see what the last book brings. Action, adventure, mystery, intrigue, twists, turns, well written story line and a whole lot of sexy make this such a wonderful read. I liked how we got back stories on Alex and Paco. These books are so much fun to read that you won't want to put it down once you start it. I stayed up well into the night to finish this one because I couldn't stop reading it.

Burned is the third book in the Alex Drake series, it’s hot sexual, seductive, suspenseful romance filled with fun, sensual, and explicit love scenes that leave nothing to your imagination.
Madison Taylor is engaged to Alex Drake; the news of their engagement made it to the headlines, and gossip around the water cooler will never be the same again, especially when one is eavesdropping on employee conversations.

I enjoyed this series and these wonderful characters. However, they fell short in this book. I cannot quite put my feeling on what it was but I just didn't connect to this part as much.

Still, I'm glad I discovered this author.

This series seriously just keeps getting better and better! This is a series that you really need to read in order so you understand the characters and what is driving everything. This is book 3 and we learn more about Alex, Jack and Paco in this one. Of course Madison is still here, and there are still steamy scenes with her and Alex. Madison is coming into her own, and we see how strong and capable of a woman she really

Loved this one! I even got teary! These books take you on an emotional journey, filled with love and romance, but also suspense and a little mystery.

When people from their past turn up searching for something, Alex, Madison, and friends, work together to figure out what they're really after, and why. This one also gives us a glimpse into the men's pasts, when they were recruited for their mission with Jack.

I really liked this one. I love the characters, and their relationships with one another
