I know I’m in the minority here, but His Alone just didn’t work for me. It wasn’t the characters themselves, in fact I found Captain to be a fascinatingly strange mix of uber obsessive alpha male with the extremely patience of a saint and sweet on top of it all. Paige was alright, my heart hurt for her and what she went through as a child and understood her need for vengeance, but her ‘poor me’ tendencies got old fast. What killed this book for me was the slow as molasses pacing that had me putting this book aside more than any other I’ve read recently. Much of it had to do with all the inner monologuing going on, I honestly could have done without half of it, and even when things appeared to start picking up, it would be short lived. The smexy was SMEXY, but it wasn’t enough to hold my interest for all that long after. With so many bookworms out there who absolutely adore Alexa Riley I was really looking forward to diving into this book, but it just didn’t live up to the hype for me, so I’m chalking it up to being an “It’s not you, it’s me” situation and calling it a day.
