Review: Stay Close by Alexa Riley

Stay Close hits many of Alexa Riley’s trademark tropes: barely legal virgin heroine, love and lust at first sight, completely smitten hero, accelerated courtship, and instant HEA. For me, this is one of Riley’s better books since it tones down the hero’s possessiveness and focuses more on his desire to protect the heroine. But never […]

Review: His Princess by Alexa Riley

Review: His Princess by Alexa Riley

It’s been a while since I’ve read an Alexa Riley book, so I decided to dive into The Princess series. His Princess is book #1, which features King Roman and Princess Alena. It’s not my favorite Alexa Riley book but it’s also not my least favorite, and I’m sure it will still appease many of […]

Review: Taking What’s Naughty by Alexa Riley

Review: Taking What’s Naughty by Alexa Riley

Taking What’s Naughty is book #6 in Alexa Riley’s Forced Submission series. As you can guess by the name of the series, these are taboo stories that all feature dubious consent. In several of the other books I’ve read in this series, the taboo aspect was actually consensual roleplay; however, in this book, that’s not […]

Review: Taking What’s Wicked by Alexa Riley

Review: Taking What’s Wicked by Alexa Riley

Taking What’s Wicked is book #5 in Alexa Riley’s Forced Submission series. Each book can be read as a standalone. Now, this is the smutty goodness that I’ve come to enjoy from Alexa Riley! This book is SUPER dirty and (by all appearances) taboo. I can’t say much else without spoiling the plot, but I’ll […]

Review: Roping the Virgin by Alexa Riley

Review: Roping the Virgin by Alexa Riley

The book blurb itself describes Roping the Virgin as ridiculous and I’d say that’s fairly accurate. With every Alexa Riley book that I read, I find myself echoing the same sentiments: the book is over-the-top and not believable, but enjoyable nonetheless as long as you know ahead of time what to expect. Roping the Virgin […]

Review: Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

Review: Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

Alexa Riley’s books are pure escapism for me. They’re not realistic, there’s not much character development, and in most of their books, there’s not even much plot. But I enjoy them anyway. Shielding Lily is probably one of my favorite of Riley’s books that I’ve read so far. On the sweet to smutty spectrum, this […]

Review: Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley

Review: Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley

Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley is pretty typical for an Alexa Riley book. There’s insta-love, of course, along with standard Riley characters: a virgin heroine and a possessive hero. Normally, I’m not always in the mood for these tropes, but occasionally I do feel like reading something like this. On its own, it’s an […]
