Axel ( Corps Security Book, 1) by Harper Sloan
***Warning*** This book is intended for mature Readers due to the Hot Steamy Sexy Fire Starting Content!
Excerpt courtesy of Amazon:
Fate hasn't always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a downright bitch.
Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn't by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved.
For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle...her ex-husband. When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door.
Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn't sure he wanted to now. He's carried his anger for so long he isn't sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.
How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?
**These books can be read as standalone but each book has that one thing we book lovers NEED... A HEA**
Axel and Izzy had that high school sweet heart love going on until he left for the marines. Promises were made by both. Izzy would wait for him and he would return to her. I mean it's was going to be six long months without each other but their love could survive. But when Izzy's parents pass away and she is forced to move she can only leave word with the one woman that can't stand her...Axel's foster mom. He will get the message, he will find her, they will live happily ever after. That didn't happen. Twelve years later, she found herself married to a very abusive man, **There is Domestic Violence in this book nothing huge but it's something I need to put out there as a warning for some readers.** Two years ago her best friends Dee and Greg Cage rescued her from her horrible husband after he beat her and left her slumped on the floor bloody and bruised. The only thing she's trying to do is move forward with her life and get the damn divorce papers signed. Her friend Greg goes to see a friend of his from his time spent in the marines and fills him in on a small amount of Izzy's issues with her ex. What she doesn't know is that Reid, Greg's friend is Axel. They end up meeting at a club and Izzy has a major freak out. From there on out she is mad at him that he never returned and Axel is pissed at her because when he did come back and finally find her, he learned she was married. This story was so good. I laughed at the rebellious things Izzy would do to piss Axel off and the funny things Axel would do in trying to protect her. I was head over heels for every single one of these characters. I loved how Harper told not only told things from Izzy's POV but also Axel's. Knowing what they were both feeling and thinking kept it alive. I couldn't put this book down. Axel and Izzy went through so much together. I haven't read Book 2, Cage yet, but I'm one clicking very soon and expect it will be just as good as this one. This was amazing.
This is the time that I wish the Star Scale went up to 10 because I would rate it 10 stars. I will still give it 10 stars on a 5 star scale though. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
