Everything was fine until that innocent little rich girl walked into my garage. Since the second I laid my eyes on her, all I've wanted to do is get my dirty hands on her pure body.

There's one minor obstacle standing in my way, but I've got a plan. All I've got to do is claim her, and she’ll be mine forever.

Warning: This book is over-the-top, insta-love. There's nothing but steamy scenes, babies trying to be made, and an obsessed bearded alpha hero claiming a virgin who will be his forever. If you want it hot and dirty, this is it!

*whispers* There's a sweet smutty surprise at the end!

Val’s Review

2.75 Smut Scale Stars

As I’ve said before, Alexa Riley is my go-to smut author.

Like the book equivalent of a morning quickie…Hard, fast, and dirty – while sometimes lacking…finesse, all parties are still left satisfied, amiright?

So there’s that.

Right, Self?


You’re welcome.

Anysmut, this book once again deals with the whole “breeding” thing, which is apparently a thing, but I don’t care.

Sure it’s kinda creepy when brought into the Dirty Talk repertoire, but whatevs, I dig it.


But, with that said, this was not my favorite Alexa Riley.


Sorry, Self.


Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it well enough.

However, the whole initial interaction between the H and the h when he tells her he won’t accept any other form of payment but a piece o’ pussy in exchange for repairing her car?…


…left me feeling a little skeeved out.

Not to THIS level of skeeved out or anything, but still…the ick factor did rear it’s ugly head there for a hot second.


That, among a few other things, just left me unable to “connect” with this one they way I have with a lot of her other ones. But like, I’ve said before, we don’t read Alexa Riley for War and Peace style shenanigans.

Regardless, this was a hot and short read and I enjoyed it well enough.
