    If you’re looking for a quick read with a possessive, jealous hero who takes protection to a whole new level, this is the book for you.I absolutely loved Riker despite the fact that he tricked Evie into marrying him under false circumstances. Evie was a great heroine who stood up to him even when her heart was trying to get in the way. As much as this seems like a lot of push and pull, it never really felt like it was. I totally understood where Evie was coming from and supported her one hundred percent…mostly. Because, dang, that Riker…who wouldn’t want to yield?Told in Evie’s point of view, I do believe this was the best, and possibly only way, to tell this story. Without knowing exactly what Riker was thinking, Ms. Cross allowed me to read into his every action and reaction and that just heightened my anticipation of the outcome. There are few novellas that make me feel like I have read a full book, but this one did. It. Was. Perfect. I am aware that this author has a few other works out there and I will certainly be checking them out. Heroine POVSafeNo apparent triggers

    The beginning threw me a bit because it starts out as if in the middle of a story. I also would have liked his pov because he was awfully convincing that he was just using her. The more into the story, the more I could see he cared, which I needed to see. The second half of the book was awesome. He's definitely a dominant alpha, which I like in my Hero's. A good short story!

    I liked this book, and I liked the idea of the book, and in fact never got bored with the book but there were a few things I wish had been slightly different. I love a hero who is a jerk and redeems himself and we see at the end(ish) the hero loves the heroine but I wish we had seen it more or he had explained more so the transformation would have been more obvious and drastic between the jerk and the great hero. I also would have loved his point of view because he does makes such a big turn and I think it would have been fun to be in his head. And though I loved the idea of this story I did keep thinking well why is she doing this... just because he says so. Yeah sorry your a jerk(at the beginning) and you are just going to tell me this is how this is going because you want something from me. I get it she fell in love with him but I just couldn't stop thinking why is she agreeing to everything he says just because he says it. Don't get me wrong(like I said) I did really like this book and I loved how possessive the hero was, and he does make a turn around so I was very happy with that.I just for some reason had that thought stuck in my head for most of the book(and that was me for some reason) This book was also a easy fun quick read and I liked the authors written style. I will defiantly check out her other books(?) or future books. I loved that this was a new story idea I have never read. That right there added brownie points for me. This book could be considered over the top but in great ways, like how possessive the hero was and how stalkerish he is(in good ways). The heroine was also unique (at least for me) and I liked her a lot and I like how the hero falls completely for her, there is no one else he see's after the heroine. I highly recommend this book and really enjoyed myself reading this one.

    3.5 This one was tough for me to rate. I absolutely loved my heroes very alpha and jealous and all protective and shit but I also want them to be sweet even if it's only to the h. This hero was not, he didn't start showing a softer side until close to the end. He wasn't mean or anything he just was sweet like I'm use too. I did love how over protective he was and his jealousy lol. The sex was hot also and it was completely safe. The epilogue was lacking for me though I would have loved some babies

    4.5 OTT alpha j/p starsI really enjoyed this rec from the j/p hero group on Facebook. It had it's moments of cheesy and the heroine got on my nerves a bit but it didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the story. It starts with our heroine being upset over what she assumes is a failing marriage to a man that she basically woke up married to a couple weeks earlier, she thinks he's become disinterested and she's hurt and feeling rejected when she gets a phone call from someone telling her that she's being used, that her husband only married her to get the plans that her deceased father left behind for her. She leaves him... and then things get good :D

    Wow! I love-loved-loved this one! I was totally unprepared to be blown away by such a great book. The chemistry between the H and h was spectacular and the H was written perfectly. He is up there with Draco, Vlad, Bones and other super hot controlling alphas. The H made this book for me. He is this super sexy badass ex special ops billionaire who is dominating and very j/p (& controlling) of the h. I also loved the h and how she stood up to him & was so flippant of their marriage (very understandable given the circumstances). She wasn't a doormat. There were plenty of great jealous & possessive scenes! (Be still my heart!) This is exactly what I look for in a great romance.The only thing I'd change is (view spoiler)[ I wanted the H to suffer more for locking the h up. She let him off too easily & that was a disappointment.(hide spoiler)] Other than that, I totally loved this book and will reread again. It's going in my favorites. Thanks, Ms. Cross. Please write more stories like this (& at least this long) but include a better/longer grovel (make the H suffer a bit). Pretty please.

    It was okay, only a couple of hundred pages so I finished it without paying much attention. The story felt disjointed, not knowing the in between time-frame and lacking in details (idk whats happening 90%). Ended up skimming through the whole book. Not for me.What the hell happened actually? PLEASE FILL ME IN.

    What a surprise find this story was! I really enjoyed this OTT protective alpha male, and the heroine grew on me to where I liked her by the end of the book. Evie started off kind of selfish and immature, but as her vulnerabilities came to light, you could see a lot of her behavior was a coping mechanism. But mostly I just liked how Riker controlled everything and refused to let Evie go, no matter the circumstances. With a perfect hero so well written, Emery Cross is a new author on my radar. I'll definitely be checking out her other work.

    The Cover Had Me At HelloLoved the guy on the cover. He reminded me of my husband, well at least the husband I dreamt about when I was younger. So hot!! But I digress. Loved the story. Loved the Hero. Loved the heroine. Just a great all around read. No unnecessary drama (or cheating) and I wish all books made me feel the HEA like this one did. Awesome book. Thank you Emery Cross.

    There was not enough backstory, even through flashbacks, on why the Hero is interested in the heroine. It was a disjointed, time-muddled story. There was no clear way to figure out what happened when in the story. She's been married a week, then a couple of months alone, and then BAM-they're back together. I feel like there was much more info in the author's head that just didn't make it to the page. The bones of the story were good but the details were too little.

    Decent read. The emotional connection between the H/h wasn't shown so I didn't buy into their relationship. H pov was needed though I did like the h.Writing was engaging.

    4.0 RATING- This probably shouldn't have rated as high for me as it did but it was a perfect quick read on a lazy Sunday. I absolutely love an over the top alpha hero and this book featured a good one. While I didn't take the book too serious, I think the story could have been fleshed out more for a more complete novel - it would have been nice to include the meeting between these two characters and what transpired in Las Vegas- but it worked fine as written as well. I do wish it would have been written from alternating POV, I missed hearing things from the hero's perspective.Otherwise, I was a happy camper with this guilty pleasure read. This is my first read from this author and I hope she writes more of these type stories.

    I really like this one. I would have given it 5 stars if the story were longer. I couldn't get enough of Riker and Evie. It's a light read with a lot of drama and thrill. I'm putting this as one of my favorites!

    4.75 STARS If I didn't absolutely love Riker Holt I would've given this book less stars because I hated Evie with a passion. Evie was a spoiled, immature wannabe activist whose Father was part genius part lunatic. He was a scientist who claimed to have the plans for an amazing invention but his colleagues ridiculed him and brushed him off as being insane. Until he died then people started asking her for the plans and she didn't want his memory tainted so she said she burned them. She meets a man in Vegas who she thinks is a peace loving activist like her and after a night of drinking she marries him. When they get home she soon finds out she's married to Harrison Riker Holt, a former Army Delta Force, highly decorated soldier who is now the founder and CEO of Blade Forged Industries, a company that makes weapons. Evie was immature and ignorant most of the book and her high and mighty act was infuriating.

    I enjoyed this book. It had its faults, it felt like some things were skimmed over that as a reader I would have liked more details and the Hero's intentions are vague until the end. He has had a difficult past so is gruff and doesn't explain his motives etc but then he gives her all the soppy lines at the end.I liked he was possessive, bossy and only looked at her, despite plenty of attention from other women. He also wasn't emotionally cut off so he couldn't talk to her eventually.It also has potential to have other stories other characters from this book which I would read.Light BDSM not my thing.

    im so dissapointed in this book, i read so many reviews where they said the H was controlling and possessive and honestly i didn't see it at all. like not one bit. I did enjoy the plot, but at the same time there was no love at all between the H and the h, i couldnt feel it all and that sucked alot. There was no cheating so i guess that's a plus.

    Good but short Story def could have been longer and more detailed - the main reason for them meeting was sort of just rushed through - could have been more muster and suspense but overall it was good
