A is for ache.
C is for choice.
H is for his.
E is for Everly.
I have always gotten the short end of the stick when it came to my personal life. Drug addicted mother, obsessive step father, shitty upbringing, and one soul shattering, heart-wrenching relationship.
But everything changed when I met Alec Prescott. I couldn’t stand the cocky hotshot lawyer at first, but after assisting him on one case, my opinion changed drastically. He became the beginning I so desperately needed, even if romantic relations at work are completely forbidden.
Unfortunately, falling in love with a co-worker is the least of my problems. Funny thing about the past, it’s never truly far away. No matter how fast you run from it, or how hard you try to suppress it, it’s there, lingering like a fog, blinding your vision, impacting your decisions, affecting your life.
That’s where Tage Andrews comes in. He’s the heartache I can never outrun. The man who saved me from my past all while pillaging my emotions. I want to avoid reliving it—avoid him—but he’s always there, lingering like a fog, blinding my vision, impacting my decisions, affecting my life.
This is my paradoxical predicament.
A.C.H.E. is an angsty, fast-paced, romantic suspense with ménage themes. Reader discretion is advised. (less)
“Everly Paige is an intriguing young woman who has left behind a life of captivity and is now learning to stand on her own feet and making her own way in the world. That is until she is sidelined by a new love blossoming and an old love resurfacing, that never went completely away. There is so much that I adored about Everly throughout her story from her wide eyed innocence that showed on the surface to the steely strength that ran all the way to her core. She fascinated me learning about her from beginning to end and I might have been a wee bit jealous when she was the center of such a yummy, irresistible man sandwich but who could blame me? I fell in love right along with her for both of her beaus and couldn’t wait to watch things heat up between the three of them.
Tage had my heart palpitating and me drooling from the moment I met him. There is just something about the bad boys and their cloak of mystery that does it for me and Tage is all of this and so much more. He is Everly’s dark knight in shining armor that has the bullet scars to prove it. To bad he left a scar on Everly’s heart in the process. Tage had me yearning for this to be the right time for him and Everly to finely get their HEA..even if it was with someone else. Hell, that just made their passion that much hotter!
Alec Prescott is a suit wearing, tall dark and handsome alpha that comes off as an asshole but ends up being anything but. He is everything that Everly needs to fill the void that Tage left behind and create a love and need for him that is more than she could ever have hoped for after such heartache. Alec pushed all the right buttons to have me fall in love with him immediately. He was kind, caring, and chivalrous to Everly but also commanding, sinful, with a little mystery surrounding him. His willingness to do whatever it takes to give Everly true happiness is what made my heart sing for this hero. It would be impossible not to give him a piece of your heart.
M. Never delivers another decadent, scintillating tale that guts you emotionally yet leaves you wanting more. More steam, more soul touching moments….just more! I am insatiable for M. Never’s writing and always find myself riveted from beginning to end even if my heart is left a little tattered. A great author makes you love their writing. A phenomenal author makes you curse, cry, laugh, and feel every emotion in between…even if you don’t want too. M. Never always gives me an indescribable journey when I pick up her books that never leaves me quite the same as I was before I began the first chapter.”rochelle’sreviews
This book was a fast read/listen filing with adult angst, romance, and heartbreak (I knew when Tage promised to stick around that he wouldn’t-you can always tell!) and a great ending scene!
