Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister’s shield against the world… until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around… until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?

Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?

The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family.

All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.

Note from the author--This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn't suitable for younger readers. Brash language, sexual hotness, delectable alpha males, some violence and adult situations are all over this book--you have been warned. 

Fate hasn’t always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a downright bitch.

Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn’t by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved.
For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle…her ex-husband.
When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door. 
Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to now. He’s carried his anger for so long he isn’t sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.
How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?

"You're such a beast."
"But I'm your beast, and baby...every Beauty needs a Beast."

I loved Greg Cage in Axel. Loved him! He's protective, caring, sweet, and looks out for "his girls" Izzy and Dee and his brothers in Security Corps. But holy moly, Greg Cage is even hotter than I thought! I am talking OMG, panty melting, combustible kind of hot! He is also a foul mouthed, cocky alpha with an attitude and ferocious appetite. He is tatted, uniquely pierced, and fierce. He has failed to protect someone close to him in the past and it haunts him and makes him even more protective of those in his life now. In the beginning, he is such a man whore. But he is open to the idea of finding love and it is refreshing that he is not one of the men that runs from the idea of it.

He meets Melissa at the Doctor's office and they spark immediately. She happens to be friends with Izzy so they find themselves around each other at other times. Once they dance together, they seriously catch fire. Their chemistry was insane! 

"You aren't what I expected."
"Right back at you, babe."

But, I can tell you that if the way I feel for you now keeps growing, there isn't an army strong enough to pull me out. Spent too long wanting someone worth it and as crazy as it sounds? One look baby...it took one look....

Melissa is a tough, challenging chick who loves to antagonize Greg. She likes to play games and be in control. She doesn't want to end up being controlled by any man. She has a lot on her plate and tragedy in her past. And with Melissa, Greg has met his match. 

Having her in my arms feels like coming home. I am not one to believe in all that love at first sight bulls**t, but even as cynical as I am, I can recognize something bigger than lust at work. My body wants her; that is no secret, but the level of want is borderline craving. I need her. Needing someone is not something I am used to. No, I am used to being needed...something this woman clearly doesn't want. 

It should terrify me, I should be running, but I can't. Even though it seems rash, there isn't a way possible to detangle myself from this man, physically or mentally.

But their strong attraction and physical connection is not the only connection they share. They have similar tragic pasts and there are secrets threatening to come to light. Will demons from the past encroach on their present and ruin a chance for a future?

There are secrets, danger, crazy exes, family issues, and friend dramas complicating their lives. I loved Greg's interactions with the one to three year old boys in this book. They just melted my heart. Cohen was a cute little mini alpha and added more humor to the story. Greg went from a man whore to wanting to pursue love. He was not afraid of commitment or the idea of family. I loved seeing his soft side and how he did not hesitate to pursue more of a real relationship, even when Melissa was not sure or forces worked against them. 

You don't have to be strong all the time. let me take it, Beauty. Let me be your rock. Let ME fight. For Christ sake, let me be who you need. 

I love the unfiltered, crazy characters in this series. We get to continue seeing Axel and Izzy's story develop. We get to see more denial and wanting with Emmy and Maddox and more drama with Dee and Becke. And Zeke Cooper just seems to always be in the mix flirting and adding humor. I cannot wait for their stories. Next up is Dee and Becke. We will finally get to figure out what is holding Dee back and why have been fighting their feelings so long. 

If you love rude, crude, but totally lovable alphas and woman who also speak their mind, this is series for you. These couples are funny, passionate, and crazy about each other. They will do anything they need to in order to protect and support their friends.  This was  funny, fast paced, steamy, romantic, suspenseful and emotional.  It grabbed me, sucked me in, made me laugh, had me on edge, and kept me up until way past bedtime to get to the end.

Thanks to Harper Sloan for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
