Axel by Harper Sloan ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


Fate hasn’t always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a down right 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?


5 Amazing, hot, panty dropping stars!*

There are books that I love, and books that I LOVE enough to reread over and over again.  This book is one of the privileged few that will be a re-read when I need a pick me up!

"Fate might hate me, but that doesn't stop me from hoping one day she forgets about her favorite chew toy.  When that day comes I hope karma has some fun with that bitch, fate."

Isabelle West had it all in high school.  Loving parents and boyfriend of her dreams that she knew she'd spend the rest of her life with.  What she never expected was for all of them to be taken from her suddenly-leaving her nothing but a shell of her former self.  

For the past two years she has been rebuilding herself and her life and thinks she's finally finding happiness.  She seriously has the two best friends, Dee and Greg, anyone can ask for that support her and help her through all of her breakdowns and setbacks.  

The story develops around Izzy trying to get her bastard of an ex to sign divorce papers.  When she starts to receive threats Greg takes things into his own hands (and company) to protect her by hiring the best help possible. Turns out the protection is all of her past hopes and dreams wrapped in a beautiful package-Izzy FREAKS OUT.

Axel never understood why Izzy left him without ever hearing anything from her.  For years he's been pissed at her and now he's supposed to protect her?!  

So many misunderstandings have caused these two to be apart for years, and they finally have a chance to find the truth out and if this is their chance at forever.

What I Loved:

First:  Axel is seriously hot, hot, hot. Tall, dark, handsome, and alpha-male; Hot.As.Hell.  Just the way he talks makes me want to re-read everything he says over and over.

Second: All of the supporting characters in here are beyond intriguing.  The book did take a little long to get to the point, but it didn't feel drawn out because it built up a small background on each of the other characters. The men make me want to be a character in the books just so I can take a turn (in the bed) with each of them.  Dee is hilarious and changes so much throughout the first book.  I can't wait to read her story.  Even the girl's hairdresser was amazingly funny.

Third: The hot steamy sex!! The sexual tension was so thick throughout the book, but once it came to a head-MAN WAS IT ON.  

"Baby, it is fucking hilarious.  You really think that once I bury myself deep within your pussy and feel your tight walls squeezing the come right out of my dick, that I will ever let you go again?  You must be out of your mind, Princess.  I won't even be able to let you out of my bed until we make up for every single day we have lost."

The bad:
Uh..NOTHING! The story line had parts that were definitely predictable, but everything else made up for that.  There seriously wasn't anything about this book that I'd change..unless you can make it a picture book!

About the 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.
