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?
Both Axel and Isabelle didn’t know the truth behind the circumstances that kept them apart and because of that when they were finally brought together again each believed the worst of the other person. Isabelle suffered through an abusive marriage because of what she had been led to believe about Axel. Axel had this hatred for Isabelle because he thought she just never cared and left him. Two people who honestly loved each other very much were kept apart by evil selfish assholes.
Isabelle was understandably upset when she sees Axel again, hell I personally would have suffered a nervous break down if that had been me, luckily she had good friends to protect her emotionally until she could come to terms with the situation. Axel may want to choke Isabelle but would never physically harm her in any way, and when he finds out the circumstances behind why he has been called to protect her, his eyes are opened a little. When the entire truth is revealed, its almost heart breaking because they could have been happy and together this entire time.
Axel is the first book in the Corps Security series. This series has the potential to be a very good one if done right. There was a lot going on in this book so at times it made it hard to really get into, but I enjoyed it at the same time. I loved the introduction to the characters in this series and hope that the remaining books will be able to center more on each of their stories than trying to cram them all into one book.
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.
