When you need a book that makes you believe that “The One” exists and that in a heartbeat your soul will know it’s mate, then you need a book by Aurora Rose Reynolds.
Fans of Aurora Rose Reynolds brand of instalove (or boom as she affectionately terms it) will not be disappointed with this read. But if you have not read any of this authors books then what you get in this book is an OTT alpha that is obsessive and possessive and a lot damaged, a sassy female that brings said man to his knees, instalove that is so fast it makes your head spin, second chances, redemption, finding peace, an edge of suspense and downright HOT and sweaty sexytimes.
Aurora Rose Reynolds delivered one of my fave type of alphas in this book – the damaged soul that wars with himself on what he wants and deciding if he is good enough for that girl. Throw in that Evan is one amazing dirty talker, overly possessive and protective and when he sets his mind to winning his girl he goes all out – and I am a sucked in. Really, this is just my kinda formula.
I love that June knew what she deserved, even if Evan was it, she never compromised on what she wanted her love to be. She made sure that Evan was going to be true to her and both their feelings, and I loved that she didn’t just jump into the relationship again at first sight. The internal battle was well written and made me feel the angst along with June while she was deciding if she wanted to trust Evan again.
The tension between these two was build so perfectly. The too and fro of overcoming the past hurt counterbalanced with insane, electric attraction that is hard to ignore or deny kept me wanting things to work out between June and Evan. Because as you read, there was no denying that their love was the real deal. And when these two were together it was HOT, HOT…panty melting.
I love that we got some more of the original alpha – Asher. He is where the “boom” started and his take on things did not disappoint. He literally paved the road for his girls to accept nothing less than complete and utter devotion from a man that should not be afraid to show and act on how he feels. November also brought some character to this book with her sassy – demonstrating that she raised her girls to be just like her.
The reality is, that Aurora Rose Reynolds is known for a particular kind of love, a particular alpha and leading lady and a particular way to bring the heat. It is essentially her signature writing style. Yes, you are going to get similarities in the way the characters and stories are developed but she never fails to deliver a well written book that is on point for her brand. Knowing that I will be getting a great story is what keeps me coming back to this author and series and to be honest, her brand if what I love in books. I really recommend this book and author to fellow instalove, alpha loving romance readers.

Read A Bit Of The Book
Seeing Evan again is taking a toll on me, I can’t sleep and my mind is in a constant state of turmoil. I wake up in the middle of the night from dreams of us. The memories of him, of us are too much. Some memories have the ability to heal. The ability to light up the dark because the beauty of the memory is so bright you’re still able to bask in it.
But the memories of us are killing me slowly. They remind me that for one moment I had everything while reminding me it’s gone. It’s the realization that we’re done that’s killing me. The realization that I can see him but can’t touch him that he exist but he’s not mine is agonizing.
He’s beautiful his body is a work of art I want to touch him, I want to know what It feels like to have his bearded face against my delicate skin, I want to know if the rough edges I now see are smooth to the touch.
“June.” My name in his course tone gets my attention but when our eyes meet its not anger he’s looking at me with, its raw, powerful, hungry possessiveness.
