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?

Review by Brittany
Axel is the first book in the Corps Security series by Harper Sloan. Definitely a good start to the series, I must say.
Izzy West is just returning back to normal after being beaten to within an inch of her life by her husband. It’s been two years and she’s finally letting everything go, determined to make her life better.
When someone from Izzy’s past returns, her world is turned upside down. She thought he was dead, he thought she left her. What’s the problem, you’re asking? You think they can just pick up and start where they left off? Wrong.
Axel is in charge of protecting Izzy from her husband, though he has no idea why. Both people are missing vital information that will change their view of the other. When everything comes out, will it help these two lost lovers find love again? Or will it ruin them for good?
This book was great! I really loved the big, muscled bad boy taking care of the broken little girl. Those are always the best because there is such a true feeling of love between the characters.
Harper Sloan kept me in suspense the entire time too. I knew her husband was going to come back at some point and stir things up, but I didn’t know when or how.
I give this book four stars. While I loved it, it didn’t enrapture me like others have. But I did buy this in paperback and am going to get Harper Sloan to sign it when I see her in July. I also have Cage, and when I get money, I will get Beck. I am in love with the Corps Security men. Great job, Harper!
About Harper Sloan
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.
