a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof
They say when you assume that you make an ass out of you and me. Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she is based on what little information he had. What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with. Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, and now he needs to prove her wrong in order to protect her and their future.
It’s time you met Kenton Mayson. Cousin to the famous Mayson brothers. Is he an Alpha? Didn’t I just explain who he’s related to. The author definitely knows her alphas. The only thing they share besides DNA is their dominating side and their insta-love. These men fall hard and fast.
Every great alpha needs his little weak heroine that he can rescue. Who are you kidding. It’s ok to give them a woman, who even though is afraid, she can still hold her own and give this man a fight. The author has worked that well into the story. This heroine needs help but is not weak. As a favor to Link, Kenton has chosen to help this girl out, Autumn, who watched a horrifying scene unfold in front of her. It was at her place of work. Not the best profession but it’s what’s been helping her achieve her goals. This is not your usual heroine running from the crazy psycho ex. No. Autumn is now a target being the only survivor from that scene. Someone is out to kill her and this is where Kenton steps in.
Obviously if Link chose Kenton it’s because he’s one bad ass SOB. He is going to do everything he possibly can to protect this girl while showing her she can trust him. His alpha manners are a little harsh at times specially when he was ASSuming things about Autumn. It’s alright she can handle him. Some times. It’s hard to resist that man when he’s constantly making the poor girl feel things she hasn’t felt for a man in quite a while. She’s used to being independent and now having Kenton help all the time she doesn’t know what to do. You know he doesn’t come alone. The Mayson’s are a package deal. All the family bonding and how fast they’re starting to care for her is making her even more scared. Let’s face it she has baggage but it’s not anything Kenton can’t handle.
“My control is slipping, so I need you to come for me.”
You’re in for a nice ride down alpha lane. Lol. Not sure if anyone else sees it this way but the second half of the book picks up in a way it left me speechless. Like where in the world did all of that come from. Not in a bad way. I mean it in a really good way. Like whoa, can you give me more of that? That explains my alpha on the next level comment. You’ll get love, suspense, growth, sadness and best of all an HEA. No Cliffy guys. Woo Hoo!! (Sexy Times…Hawt) Be prepared to be Swooned Mayson style.
“I’m yours. All of me is yours.”
