I liked the plot line of the book - Ashton, a former marine turned rancher saves the day by stopping a convicted rapist and murderer after he escapes with a hostage (Brie). Ashton takes unconscious Brie home and when she wakes up, she thinks she is still kidnapped and tries to escape, starting the back and forth "romance" between the H/h.

This book has all the components of an alpha-male romance (including the initial issues, the tough hero, and then the cliffhanger before the HEA), but the writing is inconsistent and lacks enough detail to draw a picture for the reader and the plausibility of the circumstances are hard to overcome as a result. There are too many missing pieces to make the reader get sucked into the characters (for example, the heroine went from angry and upset with Ash on one page to wondering if he were her soulmate a couple pages later, then to seducing him in the shower a couple more pages later with no way for the reader to understand why she changed her mind so fast). If the book was erotica, there would have been more sex and more explicit writing, so I think the author was going for alpha-male romance - to pull it off completely, it really did need to have fewer gaps in the details.

I noticed this was a self published book and think the author had some good ideas in the plot - I just think the book would have benefited from an editor.

I hesitate to rate a book with only one star - I generally think the efforts of an author are worth more than that. I also think I owe it to an author to read a book to completion. Since I read the whole thing, I think one star is generous.

I didn't find anything in this story humorous or romantic or sexy. As I've come to expect, the book was full of errors (the plural of breast is not breast!) Overlooking that, it felt like I was reading the writing of a high school student.

I'm sorry that I could find nothing to commend here, but even at free, I overpaid.

Self published or not, you still need to be careful to edit. There were many grammatical mistakes and words misused. "Physic" is a term for medicine in earlier centuries. "Physique" describes a body. The word physic was used several times in place of physique which drove me nuts. If you are a writer, learn your words and use them correctly. Plus the story jumped from place to place without any segue half the time. She's scared of him, she wants to jump him, she loves him with no points in between. She leaves him and then she's suddenly working as head chef in charge of a huge project that would in normal life take months to organize and it seems as if it's only a few days yet we find out later it's been three months and how did we get there. Too much confusion and jumping around. Free was too much to put into this book. I'll remember this author and vow to never waste my time again.

I couldn't get past the first few pages. After trying to decipher the poor grammar, baffling word usage, and lotto-style placement of punctuation, I realized that the "hero" had less than zero respect for the hapless heroine. She was kidnapped at gunpoint by a murdering rapist, was rendered unconcious in an automobile accident caused by said "hero" who was intent only on killing the murdering rapist (with no thought for innocent bystanders). The "hero" personally decides that HIS ranch was better for her than a hospital--HELLO? Then he ogles her body and anticipates defiling her as rapidly as he can get away with it. He is ANNOYED when she wakes up and is terrified, screaming, and crying because she has no idea where she is. THAT is the synopsis of the story. WOW. What a plot! I enjoyed writing this review more than I did reading the story.

Talk about a man who plays by his own rules, and who is all alpha bada**, "eff you Frank! Tell 'em the damn truth. You allowed a convicted rapist and murderer to steal my truck and then kidnap an innocent female bystander on the interstate. Just ask all those witnesses. And you and two deputies walked around with your damn heads up your a**es." Go Ashton! Ashton goes straight the the embarrassing question when he and Brie try to get to know one another, "no, I've never been married. How many men have you effed?" Ashton is really such a giving man ladies, "thank you. I guess I owe you something in return. I can teach you to shoot or you can feel my body. After all, I did feel yours." He's also really romantic (sarcasm has been inserted ladies) "completely honorable I assure you. I thought about chaining you inside my house until I remembered a ring would have the same bonding effect." I loved this book with all his alpha-ness!

First there's the abusive, emotionally stunted hero with impulse control issue. Not attractive in the least. Our heroine hasn't got the sense she was born with and goes from zero to lust to love in a page and a half. The secondary characters are just sketches so you don't really get to know them.

The premise is interesting, though why anyone would buy that she had to stay on the ranch is a mystery - it just wasn't sold by the author. As with much of the book, it was more a suggestion than a well developed plot point.

And then there's the writing. English usage is not this author's strong suit, even accounting for dialect and Texas-isms. An author mixing up then/than just makes me give up on a story, which this author did, repeatedly, but she had me howling when she referred over and over again to the hero's physic. Honey, the word is physique. Oh my.
