I am probably (and i know this title will be disputed ) the biggest Kristen Ashley fan, and I have read and re-read almost all of her books. This one, is one of my favorites, and it is not hard to see why. While Ms Ashley is the undesputed queen of the alpha male, she took a different approach with Ty Walker. And I am inlove. Sigh, let me just take a minute to reminisce. 

Ty Walker has spent the past 5 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, and upon his release, he has one thing and one thing only on his mind, revenge. That is until he walks out of those walls and straight into the sight of Alexa Anne Berry. 

Alexa, (Lexie) has been cursed with a life that has not been kind to her. She is trying desperately to get away from a life that was never meant for her but keeps trying to draw her in, so when she agrees to help out the friend of her late boyfriend, she thinks that this will be the end of his influence over her. She is not prepared for what lies ahead when the gorgeous Ty walks out of prison and shows her a world she always dreamed of. 

Ty is as always, the ultimate alpha male, a man of few words but in his growing relationship with Lexie, he shows a tenderness that I have only seen glimpses of in Kristen’s other leading men and this is probably why I keep coming back to this book. This is a story about two people growing together in a tentative way and in an unusual situation they both grow to realize that there are more important things than payback, than revenge, than losing the most important person to you. This book is wrought with emotion and you feel everything in blinding technicolor. A beautiful, heart wrenching love story, one i probably will visit again and again. A five star read without question and lots of those insatiable sweaty love scenes…

Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
