Axel Review



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! **wink**


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?


This book was absolutely gripping!  I started it and couldn't put it down.  It is intense from the beginning to the end!  We meet Isabelle, or Izzy as she is known to her friends, in the midst of a horribly bad marriage to a psycho named Brandon.  I won't give too much away, but suffice it to say, Izzy married a man who is a monster. Izzy has been dead for the last twelve years thinking the man she truly loved is dead.

Axel, the man Izzy believes is dead, is in fact very much alive and when they see each other for the first time in twelve years neither is feeling the warm fuzzies.  They actually are so angry that Izzy shuts Axel out and Axel wants to rip Izzy a new one for leaving him.  He thinks she just married someone else without a second thought.

As the truth starts to emerge, they both rebond and fall back in love.  Brandon refuses to let Izzy go, and well this is met with Axel and his friends making Brandon's life rather difficult.  It all comes to a head and really not great things transpire.  But what I love about this book is that it has a HEA!  I needed that.  Lately I have read a lot of cliffhangers and all are dripping in suspense.

I highly recommend this book.  So much so that I give it 5 lipsticks!
