I give this book 3- I liked it but it could have been better- stars. It's a solid Ok.

Ok, this book had all the pieces but something went wrong with the assembly. Hot alpha male with a brooding personality, check. Hot girl with a traumatic past in need of some love, check. So why just three stars? A few reasons. First, the sex scenes were very tepid. Look some people might say the steam was off the scales but I'm a hardcore erotic romance girl and trust me, when measured against similar books, the sex scenes in this book were briefer and less well described than they could have been. Second, the author tries to build some mystery into the plot surrounding the circumstances of Elias' father's death but the details are very sketchy and sort of randomly placed. My assumption is that the author intends to further develop or conclude the mystery in subsequent books in the series but because it was haphazardly placed in the plot of this book two things happened: One, you didn't really care about the storyline of the mystery. Two, the mystery storyline just doesn't fit, it comes off more as a distraction than anything else. My last source of downgrade for this book is that Elias is a bit too basic for my personal taste. I like the caveman bossy alpha man but I need him to have a little more nuance than Elias had.

One final note: It's kind of weird that the author spent time developing the West Bend mystery plot line but left so much unresolved in terms of River's past and what the heck happened with her sister. Just an interesting choice of resource investment, not one that I entirely agree with.

I have literally just finished this book and I have to say I have read it start to finish in one sitting and boy I really enjoyed it.

This is book 1 in Sabrina Paige's new series - The West Bend Saints. This is Elias Saint and River Andrews story.

When we first meet Elias we discover that he's just been medically discharged from the marines after losing a leg in a bombing. He joined the Marines at 17 to escape West End, the small town he grew up in and his less than loving father.

River Andrews is a Hollywood darling who on the outside appears to have it all and is portrayed as the perfect rags to riches success. Of course appearances are always deceptive and River carries her scars deep. The night before her wedding to a famous rock star, she comes home to find him with her sister. In her bid to escape everything around her she runs bang straight into Elias...

I loved both Elias and River individually and together their chemistry was amazing. Initially these two appear to be worlds apart but their past experiences of growing up in unforgiving small towns and in unforgiving families actually provides the foundation for their growing relationship. I loved how they were both equally giving and were able to help each other fight their issues. While their lust and attraction was instant, you really got the feel for their emotional connection and how it was built up slowly but surely.The banter between the both was great and provided some real humorous touches.

The book touches on a lot of difficult topics, such as abuse, both sexual and physical and Elias' disfigurement.

Wow!! First off i want to say that i am Blown away with the Indie community and those of us that follow and support all of the authors out there that share their brain babies with us!!!! Elias was suggested to me by a dear friend and i am oh so glad that i read it right away!!!!
Elias caught me off guard, i wasn't sure what to expect but i wasn't expecting to be hrown off the emotional rollercaoster that i was taken on!!!
River was used to being in the spotlight, but the attention her fiance and sister brings is not what she intends and she leaves to figure out her life. She never thought that she would meet the beautiful vet Elias!!
Elias hasn't had the best experiences with a lot of people including his family with his 3 brothers. A trip to Vegas proves more than he expected when he runs into a damaged beauty that is running from smoething herself.
This story has twists and turns and i love the plot and characters. I appreciate that Sabrina is not afraid to used colorful language and situations, it makes the story more real and relateable!!! Well done!! CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK 2!!!!! BRING ME A SAINT!

The story seemed rushed and under developed, like she had a page limit, so the relationship didn't develop very well. Also, I feel it was very blase, irresponsible and disrespectful of the author to have characters that are victims of cutting, rape, and PTSD, and then not devote any real time to it. The characters are in denial, or just fine without any therapy because they "fell in love". Reckless. I get it, it's just a romance book, but better not to bring up such deep issues if you can't do it with compassion and respect.

This was a great read. This is the story of Hollywood actress River and Ex Navy Vet Elias.

They both have huge baggage from their pasts but manage to actually talk to each other about it and find a way to heal together.

River finds her cheating fiancee with her sister the night before her wedding. She runs out and into Elias who is not celebrating his early retirement. He gets her away from the madness that is the media and their spark immediately ignites.

I loved the funny banter between these two and the sex scenes are beyond steamy. Elias was very much the alpha dominating man. Claiming River and making her more loved and wanted than she's ever felt.

I loved Elias and his view on life. The way he could see the bigger picture despite the hand life dealt him.

Elias and River were a great start to what looks like will be an amazing new series!
