Classic Alpha Male Romance

This story is high on testosterone, short on communication. John is rich, strong, masculine and arrogant. In reality, I would hate a guy like him, but I do enjoy reading about how these bad boys get brought to their knees by a woman. This is not a sensitive romance. He'...
This story is high on testosterone, short on communication. John is rich, strong, masculine and arrogant. In reality, I would hate a guy like him, but I do enjoy reading about how these bad boys get brought to their knees by a woman. This is not a sensitive romance. He's not a nice guy, because he doesn't know how to be a nice guy. He's been stomped on and unloved and used for his money. There's also a nice bit about Raul and Elaina Vega. Not a lot, just enough to let you know they're still doing okay. If you like her other books, you'll like this one. If you're a feminist, stay away, it'll just make you mad.

Okay, so I understand that John is über alpha, I knew that going into it. I wasn't impressed with this book. It took me 2 days to even get into it, the beginning has nothing to hold you to it. The middle is captivating. I don't know what it was about these characters. I'm a huge fan of fifty shades of grey, and the crossfire series where then men are more dominate and controlling. Those books had me hooked after chapter one. John just seemed scary. There as no vulnerability with no, no give. He was controlling to the point of scariness. At times I was thinking run Sarah run.
Sarah made me hate women. She'd let John tell her how to live her live. End your engagment, never talk to him again, don't hang out with your friends. He seemed to agreesive, almost forcing her to have sex. He wouldn't listen to reason, or consider her feelings in anything. He made her completely dependent on him, not allowing her to have a life of her own.
The end f the book just made me angry. He proposes while angry with her, then it just jumps to 3 years later. What? Why don't romance novels elaborate more? Just as soon as I'm getting not it, they skip what could be good parts. John coming face to face with Randall, or seeing how her life was in Dallas. I feel like 2.99 was wasted.

    Uber Alpha males dont succumb to their women... just another fantacy that rationalizes abuse and secretly glorifies a mans pocket book.

    Not my cup of tea

    This book was not too bad but it was not incredibly good either. I cannot honestly say that I enjoyed. There was to much abuse and the main character is portrayed as a bit of a push over. In general this book is not my cup of tea I am not a fan of women who don't stand up for themselves and men who feel the need to be dominate in every aspect of a womans life.

    isn¿t a type of ¿love¿ I find romantic

    I should have listened better to the reviews. This isn’t a type of “love” I find romantic. If I had a friend whose boyfriend told them they couldn’t go to the grocery store without clearing it with him first, I would call for an intervention.
