Until Valerie (Happily Ever Alpha World) by Jessica Marin
Opposites don’t just attract… sometimes they BOOM!
All I’ve ever wanted is to make my father proud. All he ever wanted was sons. I’ve never felt like I was enough… then everything changes when I’m assigned to audit the Broken Eagle’s Motorcycle Shop and meet Rowan Pryor for the first time. The minute his eyes lock on mine, I know this gorgeous man is trouble. He’s looking at me as if I’m his everything, his eyes telling me he’s thinking of a thousand ways to get me dirty. And I like it.
But I have plans for myself and none of them include some hot, motorcycle guy in a small town.
I traded a broken past for a brotherhood I could count on. War changes people, bonds them together, so when our time in the Navy is served, I join my fellow SEALS in Nashville to help start up a motorcycle repair shop. A big city guy like me is enjoying a distraction free small town life. But then Valerie Dawson walks into the shop, wearing those nerdy glasses like it’s her mission to steal my breath away and I know I’m in dangerous territory. She makes me feel things I never thought I could feel and I am determined to make her mine.
I didn’t believe in love at first sight… Until Valerie.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I found so many new authors to love through the Happily Ever Alpha World, and this is one of them. This is a totally new to me author, and if this story is an indication, I’m going to be digging through her previously published books! I totally enjoyed this story, since it had everything I love about MC romance. There were tough, hot bikers, a strong woman that is still a little vulnerable, and a mystery to be solved!
Valerie is a strong woman, but she has never been quite enough for her father. He wanted a son to take over the family business, and she just….isn’t. She has spent her entire life trying to live up to his expectations, and has never measured up. She decides to move on with her life, be happy with who she is, and live the way she wants to. Her job takes her to a motorcycle repair shop, where she spots Rowan, a former Navy Seal, who is more than he seems! He takes one look at Valerie, and understands what all the fuss is about! He is determined to make her his, no matter what stands in their way!
I totally enjoyed this book, and the glimpse we got of the Broken Eagles MC. Valerie and Rowan are amazing together, and I couldn’t help but love them. This was a fun story, with just enough mystery and drama to keep me invested. Another amazing book in the Happily Ever Alpha World!
