1 – Axel Review
Okay, so I was kind of hoping that Beck and Dee would be book two … but they weren’t! Instead it was Greg. Now who couldn’t love our fierce protector from book one? He swooped in and saved Izzy from her horrible husband, kept her safe and put her life before his own when the time came. I mean really, what is not to love?
Well … this is a rollercoaster if I have ever read one! When our loyal protector realises what he is missing, the love and hope Izzy finds with Axel. The complete contentment that he doesn’t quite have any more. When he realises that there is more to life than protecting those you love, letting them love you and letting them into the dark spaces inside is hard!
I really, really liked Melissa. She is strong, confident and independent, you know, all those things that we strive to be! She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t want and isn’t afraid to say no, she can look after herself and those she cares about and that is what is important to her.
The dynamic between the two of them and how they join in with the rest of the group is great. I love that they are both parts of the group as independent individuals, that their support circles cross is great fun! I particularly liked the bits with Dee and Melissa winding each other up, it was so true to life and could have been my own friends.
Just when I thought that I knew where the story was going, there was another turn in the plot. This kept me on the edge of the page all the way through and took us through some emotionally GREY areas. There were some tough bits and some gentle bits, I laughed, I cried, I swore and cheered.
This is the perfect ending for our hero and I can’t wait to read Dee’s story!!
Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister’s shield against the world… until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around… until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?
Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?
The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family.
All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.
