His Alone is the second full-length installment in Alexa Riley’s “For Her” series. Once again, this book was a sinfully delightful read, with good story development, some suspenseful elements and a hot alpha hero, “reasonably” obsessed with his love interest, Paige, Miles Osborne’s half-sister. Ryan Justice is a flawed, possessive, over-the-top hero, and yet he is very controlled and doesn’t go into stalker mode, at least not openly because his photo wallpapers were creepy!
He is a typical Alexa Riley’s alpha hero, and I loved that the authors took the time to develop his relationship with Paige. Paige is a strong, bold and independent heroine. She is nostalgic, though, seeing Mallory and Miles together is bittersweet. Mallory has been her only family for years and it’s hard for Paige to let her go. Her relationship with her brother revolved around their revenge plan, but Miles has done his part, stripping their father of his businesses. Paige is not done yet with her revenge scheme, she still owes her mother justice.
There were interesting twists in this story, and some dark elements, although it’s not the main focus of the story. The time has come for Ryan to come clean and express his true feelings for Paige. He has been taking things slow, but the time has come for them to leave their ghosts behind and move on. Ryan is a protector and Paige definitely needs a man like him.
This sexy and twisty story was totally addictive and compulsively readable. I couldn’t put it down! And I loved the wonderful, totally satisfying extended epilogues. These authors’ books have now become a guilty pleasure of mine and I can’t wait for more!
I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley.
