Sudden Love Reviews
Nope. Creepy insta-love between a 34 year old bodyguard and an emotionally abused, emaciated kidnap victim. Heebie-jeebies were felt at how inappropriate the relationship was. Stopped at 50%. Not for me.
2.5 StarsPretty predictable. Alpha hero saves damaged twink, insta-love ensues. Family of alpha heroes razz the cuteness of the couple, Alpha growls, Twink blushes, they bone, the end. Aaron was pretty messed up when Xander found him so the lust was a little creepy considering. Xander's resolve to let Aaron heal didn't last nearly as long as it should have for Aaron to recover, but the focus was on the boning here not the recovery.The mystery is unsolved so there is a setup for book 2 and the next alpha hero in line.
Okay. As annoying as Aaron is. ...I love him! I know the next books will feature other characters. .. but I hoping Aaron will continue to show up! !
2.5 stars. This didn't draw me in at all, but I finished it.
This review was originally posted on Cocktails and Books."Sudden Love" by April Kelley is exactly what the title says. It's the story of Xander Newell, who works with his brothers in the security business. He's tired of one night stands and men who don't want a commitment. He's lonely and wants to settle down with someone, but he just can't seem to find the right man.One day, while on duty protecting a young porn star, he gets a call from his brother telling him to come home. Something big has come up that needs immediate attention. I don't want to give too much away, but it involves some missing gay men. Just as Xander and his brother, Ryan, approach the location where the men are (possibly) being held, they almost literally run into Aaron Keller. He's one of the missing, and he's just escaped. It's obvious that he's been nearly starved to death, and he tells Xander and Ryan that there are others, and they must save them. Right away, there is an attraction between Aaron and Xander. Even Ryan notices and teases Xander a bit...saying that Aaron is just "his type".Their relationship really takes off. Xander wants to protect Aaron, and poor Aaron is so damaged from his time in captivity, he latches onto Xander and doesn't want to let go. What follows is a very sweet interaction between the two. Of course, it's also sexy, but what really pulled me in was that sweetness. That sort of tenderness is a weakness of mine. I fell in love with those boys as they fell for each other.Along with the wonderful romance, there is an excellent subplot. They brothers are working against the clock to rescue the other men and bring down the group who is responsible. This was very interesting. I love a good crime story, and the detail that Ms. Kelley includes really brought it to light. It's not just any old plotting device to move the book along. It's obvious that she's put a lot of thought into it, and it's not a one and done deal. There are going to be sequels. You just know it, so we'll be able to learn a bit more as we go along. I'm really happy to have gotten to read this. I'm a new fan of April Kelley. Her books are awesome, and I can't wait to see what's next for her and the Newell brothers. Excellent.This book was reviewed by a member of the review staff at Cocktails and Books. The name of the reviewer can be found under the post categories.
This is a great story with a lot of suspense, drama, and Hot Sex. The characters are well developed with all of them individualized with their own complexities and personalities. The story involves four brothers who make up Lakehouse Security.. Xander, the second oldest, has been on different security missions for a while. Currently his mission along with his youngest brother, Ryan, was to check out a cult which was kidnapping gay men and torturing them. When one of these captives escape, Xander and Ryan track him from the compound, and take him back to the brothers' home. Surprisingly Xander and Aaron (the escapee) develop an immediate attraction from the beginning and fireworks are set off. It doesn't take long for the law enforcement man of the compound to find Aaron and takes him to his home to torture him more, but luckily Xander is not far behind. This story is the first of the Lakehouse Security Series. There are more prisoners at the compound and the word is, there are other cults in the state that are doing the same thing..... There is a lot more action and suspense left to come in this series and I'm sure there will be a lot more Hot, Hot Sex. If you love MM Sex, Love, Drama, Suspense, and Action you will love this. Great job April!! Can't wait for the next one in this series. A Great Beginning for an amazing Series.
4.5 stars... I really enjoyed this one and lol Aaron and the things that come out of his mouth. I thought Xander and Aaron were so sweet together and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series...
A gorgeous story of love at first sight even if its a photograph. There's just a matter of meeting in person to further their feelings. Xander and Aaron are sexy together, Xander's possessiveness is adorable. Aww I loved Aaron's personality in saying what he thinks he's quite funny esp with the brothers in the house.. I'd love to read Tripp's story as he's hilarious. Xander was 32 yrs and wasn't looking for casual hookups he wanted love in a relationship. His job now was guarding a porn star keeping him safe. Working at the Lakehouse Security with his siblings he gets called home. Xander's new assignment was to find boys that had gone missing. Zachary, Jacob, Aaron, missing presumably by a religious cult. Aaron escapes the compound to find help.. But the others need rescuing still.. Aaron is definitely not safe esp when he being tracked.
I over rated this book because it was somewhat entertaining.Unfortunately it had many typos and spelling mistakes, The plot and conflict resolutions were extremely simple and unrealistic, the characters immature and sometimes the absolute lack of research combined with immense ignorance was hilarious.(view spoiler)[ Like the MC's mobile phone buzzing at the begging of the book.(hide spoiler)]So it is not a book to read for enjoyment, or to curl up with and relax. Still it is OK for killing time on public transports or at waiting rooms and long queues.
To be honest, I just found it…bland. A definite case of telling not showing, for me. Didn't finish, made it to like 20-something percent.
