Axel by Harper Sloan GIVEAWAY!!

Axel (Corps Security, #1)

Note from the author--This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn't suitable for younger readers. Brash language, sexual hotness, delectable alpha males, some violence and adult situations are all over this book--you have been warned. 

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?

Harper Sloan

About the Author:
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

Author's Favorite Quotes from Axel

People say karma is a bitch but I have news for you, karma doesn’t have anything on fate when she is after blood.  Not a single thing.

“Sugar, I have thought about sex, hard fucking dirty sex, about a hundred times since we sat down to eat.”   “Does that clear it up for you?”
She just keeps roaming her eyes over my face.  As pissed as I am right now, I can’t help but become sucked in to her all over again.

The past can’t touch me. I am stronger than this. I am a survivor.

“Missed you…so fucking much, Princess.”

My body is telling me to start humping, my heart is telling me to run, and my mind is sitting there enjoying a cigarette as his hips start to move against me.

I want this, God how I want this.  Right or wrong, this feels like heaven; even chocolate is no match for the full body electric tingles that are shooting through my system.

I am ready to make my girl mine again.

I want you alone in my house, where only my ears can hear you scream.”

Going to make you scream princess, and then when you can’t take it anymore,” he pushes his denim covered hips hard into mine, his thick erection rubbing my clit in the most delicious way, “then I’m going to lick my way up this sweet fucking body and finally I’m going make you mine.”

“Never letting you go, Izzy.  Never.”  He whispers into my hair, squeezing me a little tighter.  
“I always have been yours, you know that, don’t you?”

“Never again, Izzy West.  I will never again let anyone take you from me, or anything from us.”  His words hang between us both as a promise and a threat.

I know in this moment that this man would fight to the death to keep me by his side, protecting me from the world.

“I love you, Axel Reid.  I have loved you forever and I will never stop.  Made for me, baby.  You were made for me.  Don’t ever leave me.  Never again.  I would rather die than be without you again.”

I just want to be yours.  That’s all I’ve ever wanted

if one more thing goes wrong today, I’m going to say fuck it and kidnap my woman and drag her up to the bedroom.  At least I know I can keep her happy there.

Jen's Review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is great! I totally missed reading about those big strong military alpha males!
And Trust me, Axel, Greg, Breck, Coop, Locke, - They're all Alpha males! How they get along so well is beyond me!

I think Greg is my favorite though - hopefully his story is next - but I think Breck and Dee need to figure out their story first :) Or maybe Emma and Maddox :) The possibilities are endless :)

This story is about Axel and Izzy -
Fate hasn't been that wonderful for Izzy - In fact, Fate downright hates her.
First Axel is shipped off to the military, then her parents die, she loses a baby she didn't know she wanted until it was too late... her hope was squashed.

she finally gives in to what she hoped to be love again, only to find herself in one of the most horrific situations imaginable.
Abused and alone, Izzy doesn't see a way out. That is until it's almost too late.

2 years later, Izzy is still struggling to get through every day without fear of having to look over her shoulder.
Her best friend Dee and Greg are there to help her though it all though, and to make her feel as safe as they can. With Ex-Military Greg by her side, she feels she can finally be happy again.

But when a reminder comes into the mail that her husband is still out there, and refusing to give her the divorce she needs to move on, she goes right back into her shell and hides.

Greg takes immediate action and calls in his old Military buddies. Reid's is the biggest and best friend he has, and is perfect for the job of protecting Izzy and getting the divorce finalized and him out of her life.

But when Izzy finally see's who Reid's really is, she goes even farther back into her shell and doesn't want to see him again.

Axel Reid is hurting. After many years searching for his long lost love, only to find out she's married to someone else, he doesn't know how to deal with seeing her again. He's so angry with her.

it takes him awhile to realize that she is the same person Greg was talking about with the crazy husband who was fighting her divorce. He didn't get the details, but when he finds out WHY Izzy was so scared, and no longer the strong young woman he remembered, he becomes livid and swears to protect her from any harm..

This story was great! I really loved it - These guys are funny and fun and a perfect group of people i would love to see out in public having a great time! Picturing these hot male bodies, I felt like Swiny - Dee and Izzy's hair dresser when he first saw Axel :)

Awesome story though about a long lost love and mixed up communications - Happy Ending and all around a great read :)
