Review: AXEL 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?

Abby’s review 5 stars



I have a new Book Boyfriend and his name is Axel Reid!  Axel, is 31, dark jet black hair, about 6’5, ex marine, tattooed, and a super sexy.  Once the Heat kicks on in this book it is hot!

“This is pure love making.  This is two souls that have been adrift for two long finally coming home together.”

Besides, a ton of super sexy alpha males, the story here is really good.  Sometimes. I feel like with a ton of hot alpha’s we loose a great story but not here!

The pain and love between Izzy and Axel makes this story.  I loved this.  I felt both of their pain.  When Axel hurt for Izzy my heart hurt too.  When he loves her, I am right there too, and when when he did things to her, my toes curled.

“People say karma is a bitch but I have news for you, karma doesn’t have anything on fate when she is after blood. Not a single thing.”

This is the kind of book where I stayed up way later than I was supposed to.  I knew the time kept ticking by, but I had to read the next line.


About this author

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
