Review: Axel (Corps Security #1) by Harper Sloan


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?

My Review

Look at that cover. Tell me you don’t want to read it just because of that. Go ahead. You can’t, can you? It is okay. I couldn’t either. Lucky for me and you this is a good book.

It wasn’t just the cover that got me to read this book. I am a sucker for books when people meet up with a love that they got separated from.

Axel was in foster care and joined the Marines as soon as he graduated High School. The plan is to just be gone for 3 months to do his training then come back for his Isabelle.

Well… The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.

Isabelle eventually moves on with her life and gets married to Brandon. Brandon is not a nice man.

When Axel ends up back in her life twelve years after leaving her, she is not in a good place mentally. I can’t give away any spoilers but just believe me when I say she is having a rough time and seeing Axel after so many years does not help at all.

Isabelle’s life is in danger and she needs all the help she can get. (This leads me to question… do hot guys all hang around each other like this in real life or is this just a book thing?) This book has a whole group of hot alpha marines and is a definite perk of the book. *wink, wink*
