Chloe’s life is safe and comfortable. Meeting a tall, dark stranger covered in tattoos is not in her plans. Bad boys just aren’t her type, even if they gorgeous and built like a brick wall. The alarms in her head warn that Aiden Hunter is definitely on the list of men her mother told her to avoid, but she doesn’t listen.
Still, she finds herself drawn to Aiden and the excitement she is missing in her own life. He fills her days with thrills and danger, and her nights with passion she’s never experienced before. Even though she knows he’s hiding something from her, Chloe pushes away her concerns and dives into this new way of living.
Near the beach in Miami, Aiden teaches her to live life to the fullest as Chloe battles the internal warning bells that tell her to be wary. By the time she realizes her fears may be justified, it’s too late.
Aiden’s past is catching up to him, but is he the hunter or the hunted?
Oh, how I love this new standalone novel by Shay Savage. I could not put it down. I was completely enthralled by her new hero Aiden Hunter. This man does not just scream sex appeal, he is a freakin’ machine in bed. Aiden has all the bad boy looks – tall, muscular, covered head to toe in tattoos. He is also one hell of a dirty talker. Holy fuckin’shit! The words that came out of this man’s mouth kept me in a constant state of horniness. Geesh!
ALARM was the author’s first time writing completely from the female’s POV, and I think she nailed it. Chloe is the heroine and she’s living a straight-laced ordinary life. Honestly, she is flat out boring and kind of nerdy with her strict schedules and structure. When Chloe literally runs into Aiden alarm bells immediately sound in her head because she doesn’t do bad boys. However, she can’t fight her attraction for this sexy as sin man. I loved that Aiden was able to teach Chloe to let loose and actually live life.
“That’s life Chloe. That’s living.”
I also love the message this book sends about not judging a book by its cover so to speak. Just because a person looks a certain way doesn’t mean they fit into a certain category society thinks they should be.
I felt deep for these characters. I connected with them, laughed hard at times, and my heart even broke for them – especially Aiden. I definitely enjoyed everything about ALARM and I’m so happy I read it.
