This trilogy started out really well, it was easy to read, the characters were loveable, the MC is a badass, which is a must for me. The world-building is good, the storyline interesting, I was excited to get to the end to see how things unravel, but this third book kind of disappointed me, mostly because by now there are 9 people involved with Mina and it was hard for me to keep track of each one or to feel anything for them. Multiple POV's are always welcome, but I just didn't care about any o ...more

Read other books by this author in the future: yes
MC: Mina (Jessamina), Samuel, Lysander, Patrick, Zephaniah, Mav, Drusilla, Jagger, Malakai

Biggest Problem of this book is to write a good review. Because there are so many things I could say, but it would spoil the story to write about it. I love all books of this series and the third one is a medium burn with lots of smut. And actually this book is not rh because Mina has a relationship with the nine people but everybody

I love this book so very much, it played with my heartstrings, it broke me into a million pieces and put me back together, it also made me cry and sob, it made me laugh so hard tears were streaming down my face, it made my heart feel warm and fuzzy inside and it made me love my fictional wife Mina even more! This book was just PREFECTION!

First of all, what’s better than fated mates? Well FATED MATES THAT ARE MATES WITH EACH OTHER! That’s on

Lots of couples, lots of points of view and not much depth in the characters. I only managed to connect with Mina, Jagger, Kai, Grayson and Sam. The rest, in my opinion, added nothing to the harem. Drusilla was just like a secondary background character who had absolutely no chemistry with Mina and didn't really fit into the group dynamic with the other 8 harem members. Mav has his issues where he gets lost in himself but the author doesn't really delve into them, Zep only seems to be with him t ...more
DNF at 16% when the rest of the team is trying to figure out how to deal with Mina missing.

This is a pretty long book at 471 pages with the Kindle edition. It had been about 6 months since I read the previous book, and I had forgotten just how huge the cast of characters was between the members of Team Alpha + demons + every single one of the Archangel parents (and more). While the glossary at the beginning of the book did help with nudging my memory, it was still difficult to remember every sin

Must read, but NSFW as too hot to handle

Holy cow! This book takes the reader on the most amazing ride. It’s long and filled with so much yummy goodness I’m not even positive I can properly reiterate it.

The story is wrapped up for Mina and gang, but the journey there is filled with heartache and passion. There were times I was laughing at team Alpha’s antics, but then immediately in tears from the emotions described. The characters all grow and sacrifice in order to save others. It’s beautiful

I was blessed to get onto @lexiewinston77 ‘s ARC team and I received Guardian Ascending which releases in TWO DAYS and (shamefully) I hadn’t read the first two books, so last night I dived in, not realizing how hot 🔥🔥🔥 and addicting they would be. I’ve read paranormal romance before but I’ve never been turned on by a demon tail until now. I’m not kidding when I say these are some of the hottest scenes I’ve ever read. I like my romance dirty and 🔥🔥🔥 and these books do not disappoint. The original ...more
DNF - quit at 70%
This book moved so slowly, with entirely too much POV changes for scenes I really didn’t care about. I felt like the author was relying too heavily on the sex scenes to carry the story. Way too much M/M action, almost made it feel like it’s more about the shock value, as I didn’t “feel” the relationships or even chemistry between them, but more it all intertwined with her being a succubus influencing them instead. I actually regret picking up this whole series in the long run af

The perfect ending to the Collector’s Division Series.

This book has a lot of emotional ups and downs. I laughed, cried, got royally p*ssed off, and even extremely giddy. You feel so invested in these characters that at one point I even felt like writing Lexie and giving her a piece of my mind. LOL. This says a lot about the stylization, depth, and detail that Lexie puts into her books and characters.

I have also found with ALL of Lexie’s books that I want to know how the relationships end and get

What an ending the this series! So much happened in this series - especially in this finale!

Heads up there is a glossary of the characters and realms in the book - don’t be afraid to reference it if it has been a while since you read the previous books. Don’t let the thought of needing a glossary deter you - but with the amazing cast of characters in this series referring to this can be handy 😉 I didn’t refer to it until later in book and wish I had done it earlier - I’m a little OCD about knowi

Oooh this soooo lived up to all my hopes and dreams for this series! When I first started this series I was fortunate enough to be able to read book 1 and 2 back to back and didn’t have to wait too long for this 3rd book to come out!
I am not a crier, which is weird being the emotional sign of Cancer. However, there is one point in this book where I actually shed a couple tears. So props to Lexie for being able to pull them from me. It’s not a feather many authors can put in their cap!

Perfect Ending to the Collectors Divison. OMG. This series was to die for. This book had me on a roller coaster with cheering and crying along the way. I loved the fact that it ended on a good note and yet Lexie left it open to tackle it later if she wants. Mina’s story continues where she’s captured by Sabboath and the hunt is on to save her and her new mates? But not everything is that simple, the other realms are falling apart and the timetable has moved up. I was on the edge of my seat durin ...more

This was probably my most anticipated RH PNR series finale this year! I’m a huge fan, book three was greeted with mixed emotions, I really didn’t want Mina’s story to end. 😢

Pick this up! Pick up the whole series! I can’t state that enough. With a growing harem, an amazing storyline, this finale will pull your heartstrings. I loved mm incorporated into the harem, it fits so perfectly and was well written. Between the cliffhanger in book two and the beginning of Ascending, the transition is smooth

I give this book an overall 4.5 stars. I really liked how Mina's powers grew and the development of her relationship with her parents. The theme of family is very strong in this series and I enjoyed seeing the famous Archangels as parents. I would have liked to see more of a development in this area.

However, there were many factors of this book I disliked. The variety of perspectives were annoying as it stopped the book from flowing and at times there were multiple perspectives of the same scen

Holy Freakin Amazingness!! Lexie Winston does it again with her absolutely ingenious writing. From the beginning I have been hooked on this series and this last book is no different! Gah!.... It is non-stop action that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. So sad to see this series end but you will not regret picking up this brilliance to read! Jessamina has a rough road with her harem but the bumps and bruises along the way help to bring them together on a deeper level. What a freakin e ...more

Fantastic ending to a phenomenal series

I’m so sad that this series has come to an end, it’s honestly such a great series. It’s so very well written with such fine detail you just fall into Mina’s world.
This book was great, it has highs and lows, fights and steamy AF sex scenes (and I’m not exaggerating, they are hot as heck).
The storyline has twists and suspense throughout which had me not putting this book down until the very last word.

Huh! Was it me?
I had the hardest time staying interested in this read. I don't know if I was fatigued with the story having read all three books in a row or if it just wasn't that great. I was seriously fighting a dnf at about the 70% mark. Sigh, the book was a series of illogical behaviors from everyone intermixed with sex scene after sex scene. It just became too much for me.

The bonding between sam and Grayson at the end of the book felt like cheating. Just saying ...was not a

Jump right back in, where book 2 left off, and get ready for another whirlwind adventure...

Mina has been kidnapped, her mates are intent on rescuing her, and AoA continues to wreck havoc on the different worlds/realms... who can be trusted, what twisted games are being played, and how will they all survive if Mina doesn't return in time?

Get pulled into this rollercoaster of events as we find out if Mina is the chosen champion Mylea needs her to be. Bring on the shape shifting, sexy times, fighti

I hope your ready for the epic ride this book will take you on. We hit every single stop along the from heart warming to heart breaking on our journey through this massive conclusion to Mina’s journey. The twists and turns keep coming all the way to the last page with only adds to an already enthralling story that I know I’ll constantly revisit over the years. The ending leaves enough loose ends that a spin-off series or even a novella could come down the line, but plenty of resolution for the m ...more

WOW just wow !!!

This is the last book in this series and what an amazing ending, it's bitter sweet as I sill want more.

The whole series has been such a great read, you get sucked in from the get go and just have to keep reading, it is one of them books you just can't put down even if you wanted to (and I didn't want to).

I can't wait to see what this amazing author will come up with next because I will waiting patiently or not.

So if you are looking for a great read, something to get your teeth in

The thrilling conclusion to the Collector's Division Series. So much happens in this book. We find out just how crazy AoA is, and who is pulling the strings. What Mina's destiny is. How far Samuel is willing to go to help the Collector's Division, and the world.

And there's a nice little surprise in the middle for Mina.

I loved this entire series. Book 3 is by far the hottest, taking this harem into poly territory. There are some surprise twists, a lot of forgiveness, in-depth action, and a happy

This is a fantastic and thrilling ending to the series. Mina is captured and fighting for her life. She doesn’t know who to trust and it’s possible that her captors are her mates. There is just so much going on. She has to fight against Sabboath and defeat Hammus, while maintaining her mate bonds and adding more mates. This is so emotional. I can’t think of an emotion I didn’t experience during this read. This book has it all! If you are a fan of fast paced paranormal action and like all the ste ...more

Love the storyline

As I was reading I saw some of the things that will need to be fixed during the re-edit but it doesn’t detract from this spectacular series. I was little sad not to have an epilogue at the end but beggars can’t be choosers. I love the authors writing style and have read almost all of her books already and this one was no less enjoyable than the others, maybe more so cuz I’m a book whore for some reverse harem. I loved your authors note in the beginning btw made me even more ex

Now this was a magnificent ending to the series! Lexie has outdone herself in creating this incredible world and story. In this book we leave off from wheee the last book left off. Mina faces betrayal, kidnapping, and more. But through all of that she has her mates and the strength to keep fighting. This series was just incredible and the ending! I hoping there is a spin off in the works! I highly recommend this series! I laughed, cried, and cursed throughout this book, but it was fantastic!

This was the perfect, absolutely perfect conclusion for Mina and her harem!!! I'm so sad it's over but also so in love with where this story went. It was a rollercoaster of emotion from crying to laughing to burning from the heat of the scene. Beautifully written and beautiful world creation that spanned all 3 books of this epic trilogy. Thank you Lexie for writing these and putting then out in to the universe!

Highly recommend!

This book is long and I'm grateful for every page as we get to say goodbye to Mina and her mates. The world Lexie Winston has created is so interesting and imaginative, and gives the hint that it's only just the beginning. I can't wait to see where she goes from here. ...more

A Fantastic and steamy ending

Book 3 of Mina’s story is a fantastic ending to the series! The strength of will of Mina is amazing as she deals with being kidnapped, betrayed, finding long lost parents, and so much more. And the the scenes with her mates are down right steamy which is perfect since they literally power her, lol. Lexie wrote an incredible series with an amazingly strong FMC and like I mentioned the ending was pure perfection.
