YaYa's Review

#AlphaLove

“Have I told you that you’re annoying?” she asks then huffs when I smile. “A few times.” “You’re annoying, bossy and annoying.”

To some readers these alphas are a little too much but not for me. I’ve been reading about the Mayson’s since Until November and what the Boom is all about. Jax is Cash and Lilly’s son so we already know sooner or later it was going to happen. If you haven’t read Until July you’ll be a little lost as to some of the events going on here happened in that story. I wish the author would’ve began this story with the prologue going back to what it was that happened to Ellie. I was a little lost at the beginning wondering why it just started like that. Glad there were a few readers willing to refresh my memory.

Let’s get down to business. Jax is an alpha…Ddduuuhhhhhh. Nothing else is to be expected from the men this author writes about. But they are loving and once they love there’s no turning back. Most of the time it’s Insta-Love. Jax felt something for Ellie the first time he laid eyes on her. Right away he wanted to help her.

She’s mine. She may not understand it-hell, I don’t event know if I understand it-but she was made for me.

How did he know that? Hush up. I told you it’s the Boom. Ellie is struggling. Not money wise, but with something horrific that happened to her and Jax won’t let it go. His plan is to make her fall in love with him so she will never leave. Let me also tell you she has baggage. A child. Yes. But it doesn’t stop him. I love how the Mayson’s see beyond the physical or emotional hurt of a person. It’s like they have a radar for people in need. Not that Ellie is needy. She’s gone through a lot and on her own. Trying to do what’s best for her and Hope. Made me love this character even more. She would move mountains for her little girl.

“I don’t care if it’s too soon to tell you. I don’t care if you think we need more time. I’m not going to pretend I don’t love you.”

My one and only problem. Seems authors are sticking to a formula. Boy meets girl, around 50% they have sex, 80-90% something happens and everything is solved in the last 10% and the epilogue is years later. Ugh!!!! Please stop. Makes me feel I’ve missed out on more important things. Like a character not seeing his mom for years and then she comes to save him. What happened to the parent that sold her child or even her grandmother who we never heard from again? Where the hell was the villain all this time? I get you wanting to show off the sexy times with this great alpha who’s trying to win the heroine over but you’re missing out on important details then you don’t even let me enjoy that ending because I already know it’s going to be too damn quick. Rant over.

Overall, I enjoyed it. Characters are very likable and fun. I definitely can’t wait to read about Kim and Sage. That sparked my interest. Also wondering if there will be anything on Ashlyn and that horrible boss of hers. What about June? What the hell is she getting herself into? See I’m already looking forward to the next ones even after complaining.

Happy Readings Alpha Lovers💋

Excerpt

“Thank you again for taking me.” Pulling my eyes from the road for a brief moment, I look at Ellie. Her head is resting against the window, her legs pulled up onto the seat, tucked near her ass, and her arms are wrapped tight around them. One thing I’ve noticed about her over the last few hours is she’s always wrapping her arms around herself or tucking her body into a tight ball. It’s like she’s forcing herself to stay together.

“I told you I got you, baby,” I say gently, wanting more than anything to take her hand in mine, but every time I touch her, she freezes up like she’s waiting for me to strike out at her, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t piss me the fuck off. It does; it feels like a slap in the face every time it happens.

“I know,” she whispers, and the tears I hear in her voice cause a sharp pain in my chest.

Fuck.

“This is the turnoff.” Her feet go to the floorboard and her hands to the dash as she sits up taller, moving her face closer to the windshield. We drive up a long dirt driveway with forest and the occasional broken down car on each side. When we make it to the top of the hill, a singlewide trailer comes into view, with junk cars and garbage piled up out front.

As soon as I come to a stop, she opens her door and hops out before I can tell her to keep her little ass in the cab. I don’t even know how I’m going to deal with the range of emotions that have settled over me since seeing her for the first time.

“Fucking Boom,” I mutter, getting out behind her and doubling my steps until I’m able to reach her side, where I wrap my hand around her waist and pull her closer to me. She’s so fucking tiny that the top of her dark head sits right at my chest. So fragile, from her too soft skin to her petite size. And she’s mine.
