Not at First by Phalla S. Rios ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


Falling for two men at the same time was something Angel Mabbott never expected to happen.

Leaving a past full of pain and loss in California, Angel is determined to make something of her life when she starts college in Minneapolis. But life takes a turn when she finds herself torn between Kevin and Roman.

Kevin Hawken is a domineering man who forces himself into Angel's life and changes everything she thought she knew. But how much can he be trusted when he is so secretive about himself?

Angel was instantly intrigued when she first laid eyes on Roman Conti, an Investment firm owner. He was everything she ever wanted in a man: romantic, loving, and protective over her.

As Angel begins to weave a bitter web of desire and deceit, will she find herself consumed, or will she be able to find her way out and follow her heart?

I have to be honest, I wasn't quite sure about this one.....of course I love a good triangle but it just didn't grab me at first and I had a hard time connecting but around 30 % the hooks were sunk in and I was hooked! I couldn't wait to see what happened in the story and it had a great plot twist that I didn't see coming. 3.5 stars.

Angel has not had the easiest life and after losing her father, she feels even more lost.  Feeling hopeless, she makes the decision to try and end her own life.  After her recovery, she is sent to Minneapolis by her uncle to try and start over, begin college, and start fresh and move on with her life. Unknown to her, she has a mystery man that is in love with her.  Her mystery man follows her to the new town to watch over her and keep her from getting hurt and hopefully steal her heart.

Not long after moving, Angel finds herself involved with two men. She has Kevin.....the hot, tattooed college student who makes sure she is safe, comfortable, and seems to genuinely care about her, who is getting to her heart.  Then there's Roman......the sexy, alpha, business man, who will stop at nothing to have her, and who owns her body.  Both of these men are keeping secrets, some more deceitful than others, when the truth comes out who will win Angel's heart?

I enjoyed this story and will definitely be reading book 2.  This is a good debut novel, with a little more character development and descriptive writing Phalla will continue to grow as an author and I can't wait to read more from her.
