Why He LUSTS by Alexa Brookes Book Review


Why He LUSTS

Alexa Brookes

 


Book Description

A Hot And Brand New Alpha Billionaire Romance Series!

 

Why.He.Sins.

 

When Megan was finished eating she went outside and sat on the porch. She had her legs covered enough so that the scars didn’t show; but when she lifted the leggings just a bit she could see the scars running up and down her legs.

 

She would always remember that horrible night. The doctor said that the memories would all fade away, but he lied to her. Even after she had gone for a that last checkup to make sure she was still doing well, the nightmares still came and she always ended up waking up crying and sweating. Lowering the leggings so that she wouldn’t have to think about that horrible night, she got up from the chair and went over to the railing that led down to the sand. She knew that she would never be able to show anyone the scars on her legs, so she had to be careful so that no one asked what happened to her...

 

 

My Thoughts

 

 

Michael and Megan are finally reaching some real epic points here when her father yet again causes trouble for them. I literally cannot even express how much I do not like this man. Now not only are his problems becoming Megan’s they are becoming Michael’s too. The plot has definitely thickened here in this book and I cannot wait until we get some answers.

Also enter Michael’s dad, apparently he seems to be a big thorn in Michael’s side as well, unfortunately his story sounds a bit too much like Megan’s dad’s story which I am hoping is not the case because that would be a bit of a bummer for me. I mean having the dad’s both have the same kind of background would give the characters something to relate over, but I think it’s a tad unrealistic especially in this scenario. I really don’t think Michael would be the kind of man to agree to take someone’s daughter as payment for a debt if he had a father just like hers, so I am really hoping I am just wrong about this whole theory and it just sounded like it.

Sexy times, hot, sizzling, scorching, however damn the man!!!!!! Seriously how does that even happen, see this is exactly why I hate her father he ruins everything! I want this to happen, I need this to happen, I want these two together so bad! I am hoping it happens in the next book and sparks fly!

My Thoughts
In this next installment we find out a bit more about each character. We definitely can giver her father the biggest jerk award. I mean how can someone treat their child like that? I just wanted to throw a brick at him, I mean really! When the man who is holding your daughter as payment for your debt is treating your daughter better than you, you have a serious problem!
We also get to dive into Megan's secrets which are pretty gnarly and a bit intense so beware. There definitely is some sensitive material for all my readers who like to have trigger warnings before they go into their reads, if you are one to avoid those kinds of reads, beware. This one contains sensitive material.
I liked seeing the development of these characters, Linda is a wonderful addition. The plotline is developing quite nicely and I am definitely intrigued.

My Thoughts

First off let me say that I think these books need to be read together as a set, I don't think they can be read effectively as a standalone. I really feel for Megan, she has already dealt with enough crap from her piece of crap father but just when she thinks he cannot stoop any lower, he sells her off to repay his debt. In a strange place with a man who clearly only wants her for one thing, she is left to make some big decisions and decide which secrets of hers to keep.
I thought the plot line was good and the steamy scenes were very sexy, but I did think that the dialogue needed some work done to it. There were also some details that needed to be carried out, some problems I found with different scenes.
Overall though I will give it a strong three bats because it kept me very engaged and I am looking forward to more steamy, sizzling times between Megan and Michael.

Author Spotlight!!!! Brad Boyer!!!!

Today's author spotlight is Brad Boyer!

 
 

I began writing about 15 years ago as a hobby but never thought about doing it for a living. But as I completed more and more novels, I started to wonder if I could be truly good at it, to be able to keep up with so many other great authors. So, I began to slowly release them as ebooks... I still don't know the answer to my question, but I am having fun writing with the added bonus of people other than me reading my material. I also know I have to continuously strive to get better and better.


Al Qaeda - The Hunt for Ali Muhammad and Al Qaeda - The Double Sword were so much fun to write. This Jack Novak series was born from all my crazy dreams as I sleep. I can't count how many times I am running down a steep mountain from a predator or maybe a raging volcano, or shooting bad guys in some dense, hot jungle, or how many high-speed car chases in the middle of some big city with way to many cars on the road I have been in. I am often more tired initially when I wake then when I went to bed from all the insanity!


So, I brought them to life with Jack Novak. I wanted to create a character that was not just some Rambo, but a human being with real problems, issues, dreams, and a life. Initially, the young man is new at the game and still figuring things out as he encounters chaotic and dangerous situations. But as the series progresses, he becomes more methodical, more lethal, one crazy individual, and is always in some sort of calamity with bad guys trying to kill him. I love the action, simply because I get it almost every night! And I have a few more to write hopefully in the near future.

As for my latest ebook, Endless Possibilities, well, check out my video, then click on the photo to read the description of this AMAZING 23 year in-the-making story!!



Outside of the novels, I have written several other smaller pieces. One of them is - 'A Recipe for Permanent Weight Loss .' It is much shorter than the action stories I love to write, but I think the most important as the obesity rate in the world increases. I purposely wrote it differently than most weight loss books. I wanted to teach the reader to understand WHY they are obese before learning how to lose the weight. You have to know the rules before you can play the game. And therefore, it is the PERFECT RECIPE!

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover Book Review

It Ends With Us
Colleen Hoover


Book Description
 
The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover.

Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.
 
 
My Thoughts
 
 
 
This book you guys, this book I cannot even put into words what this book has left me feeling. Everyone should read this book, I mean everyone even if you do not like to read, you should take the time out to sit down and read this book. I think Colleen has done something monumental here, powerful, moving, heart-wrenching, she is such a powerhouse when it comes to writing novels so I knew this one would be great, but she completely blew me out of the water with this one. Colleen sheds some powerful light on domestic violence that I think no one really takes a look at, or considers and that is truly, truly amazing. Not to mention the characters are highly dynamic and entertaining and it is so easy to fall in love with them. My favorite book of 2016 for sure, probably one of my favorite books ever. Thank you Colleen for being you!
