There's one reason that I chose a one-star review: I can't choose zero. Well, and maybe that the price was right; for 0.99 cents, I don't feel too put out on wasting my time, here. But really, the only reason I finished this book was so that I could formulate a complete review, hopefully sparing the next person from wasting their time and money. Man, the things I do for you guys.

Anyway, moving on. Let's talk about Harper Sloan's 'novel', Axel. Beware, for this review is dark and full of spoilers.

First, I do have one positive thing to say. The author had the presence of mind to warn her readers that there was a triggering scene within the novel related to domestic violence. "Wow," I thought. "That's really great of her, and very considerate. I really appreciate that." So, I kept reading.

Apparently, she forgot the other two scenes where a woman is completely brutalized in no uncertain terms. Oops? If you're going to warn your readers, warn them that there's scenes like that in general. Don't say specifically there's only one small scene and leave out the other two, which could, quite honestly, be HUGE triggers. All or none here, Ms. Sloan.

For the rest, I have a list, and none of it resembles positive.

1. Izzy is the worst representation of an abuse survivor I have ever read. She's a whiny, self-absorbed little brat that claims she's worked through her trauma, but her preferred therapy appears to be found in a bottle. Okay, fair enough; that's not completely outside possibility. However, the way she treats her support system is disgusting.

Corps Security is a new series courtesy debut author Harper Sloan. It introduces us to a hot group of former US Marines and though each book will have its own hero/heroine it is recommended you read series in order:
Axel (book 1)
Cage (book 2)
Untitled (book 3)
Untitled (book 4)
Untitled (book 5)

Axel, book 1 is Axel's and Izzy' story. Follow them through the ups and downs of friendship, love, betrayal, tragedies and their attempts of finding their way back together through the healing power of love.

"I haven't always been this weak person; this broken woman. I used to dream, and when I did, I dreamt big. I had plans, plans of a future so bright it would blind you. I can still remember the day those dreams, those grand plans, and that future as bright as the sun went poof."

No, Isabelle West, Izzy had once been this spunky and happy young lady who at age fourteen met the love-of-her-life Axel Reid. For three years her life was a fairytale with her family embracing Axel, who was raised in the foster care system. But the ambitious Axel wanted to make a better life for himself and Izzy and so, upon his graduation from high school, he joins the US Marines. Their fairytale ends there! Shortly after his departure tragedy upon tragedy strike in Izzy's life and they are forever separated - lost to each other.

In the decade since her loss of Axel, Izzy's life has been a nightmare and story opens up to yet another. She has had some happy moments, thanks to her friends Dee and Greg (and later the Corps Security team), but for most part it is spinning out of control with way too much partying to numb the memories. In the aftermath of the break-up of her abusive marriage, she needs protection and so her path crosses with Axel.

I wanted to like this book, but the author and the one dimensional characters made it a difficult and unenjoyable read.

First of all, the characters are one dimensional and flat. I didn't get any sense of depth to any of them except that they are angry all the time, act more like teenagers or young college kids than adults in their 30s, and they cuss like truckers just because they can.

Now, normally, I don't have a problem with swearing or profanity in books, but this was absolutely excessive. Almost every other sentence had an f-bomb in it or some other stupid cuss word. It makes the characters sound like uneducated white trash who have a very limited vocabulary. Not to mention, that BTW most women in their 30s do not refer to breasts as t*&$ all the time. A thesaurus or some research would have come in handy there.

The dialogue in this book makes it very difficult to differentiate between the characters. They all seem to talk the same, think the same and act the same. Ignorant and immature. If it weren't for the author telling you who was speaking at that point, I would've never been able to guess.

The heroine was hard to relate to. For someone coming out of an abusive relationship, she hardly acted the part. She was written poorly and made it difficult for me to relate to her or like her. She was self-destructive, self-absorbed, self-centered and everything bad in her life was everyone else's fault. Hello, pity party central.

The plot was boring and took forever to develop. I just couldn't get into the book and I really didn't care what happened to the characters so I didn't even bother finishing it. I'll just cut this one as a loss and delete it from my Kindle.
