Meet the Author

A student of creative writing in her youth, Jerrie set aside her passion when life presented her with a John Wayne husband, and two wonderful children. A career in logistics offered her the opportunity to travel to many beautiful locations in America, and she revisits them in her romantic suspense novels.

But the characters went with her, talked to her, and insisted she share their dark, sexy stories with others. She writes alpha males and kick-ass women who weave their way through death and fear to emerge stronger because of, and on occasion in spite of, their love for each other. She likes to torture people, make them suffer, and if they’re strong enough, they live happily ever after.

The author of THE GREEN-EYED DOLL, THE LAST EXECUTION, SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME, HELL OR HIGH WATER, and COLD DAY in HELL, books 1 and 2 in the Lost and Found, Inc. series. Her newest book NO CHANCE in HELL released April 22, 2014

    While the story, No Chance in Hell, is the goriest in the series

    While the story, No Chance in Hell, is the goriest in the series so far when it comes to the suspense, the romance is the sweetest of them all. When both sides of the story is mixed, it creates a harmonious, smooth, flowing tale.
    The villains are evil, hateful, and heinous. The crimes they commit are malicious, and made my stomach turn from the images the author created. The psychological tension that is build, while you wait for the villain's next move, is substantial. I actually had to take brakes from reading to get my head off the story. It will hunt you.
    The cast in the Lost and Found Inc series warms my heart with the love, trust, and confidence they have for each other. Marcus is a true alpha, protective and overpowering, but at the same time pure sweetness, loving, caring, attentive, and affectionate. The way he cares for Diablo, just made me melt.
    Chris, like all the women in the series, is a tough, enduring, survival.
    The romance, attraction, between Marcus and Chris is fresh and potent, palpable. While the images of the crimes the author created were more cruel than before, so is the love story sensuous, steamy, just HOT!
    All these factors mixed into this tale, makes it fascinating, one to be remembered, five shiny spoons!!

    Thrills and romance keeps readers on the edge of their seat in this mesmerizing romantic suspense.  I have not read the first two books in the series, but I was completely caught up in this one from beginning to end and I really want to know what happened to Nate and Kay and Ty and Anna. I am also looking forward to reading Jake and Holly’s book when it comes out. And I must mention that while I loved Marcus and Chris, I fell in love with Diablo and I really think that he should get a girlfriend as well.

    A definite must read filled with heat, suspense and romance

    Chris Holland has been running from her sister’s killer for two years, but the killer always seems to locate her. When he finds her latest hideout and issues a threat, she decides to turn to the Lost and Found, Inc. to help her find the killer and bring him to justice. Marcus Ricci is given the task of protecting Chris and helping her. Closed off emotionally after his wife’s untimely death, Marcus finds himself drawn to Chris even though he’s held himself apart from people.
     
    No Chance in Hell takes off running from the very first page and doesn’t let up until the thrilling climax. Jerrie Alexander demonstrates her talent for words by crafting yet another highly suspenseful love story with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and interested. The main characters are well developed and likeable, including Marcus’ dog Diablo, who has a large part in the story and is awesome. However, don’t let the cuteness of the dog throw you. The reader’s pulse quickens and heart pounds as the villain splashes his evil thoughts and deeds on the pages of this novel. 

    The heat, suspense, and romance that fill this story bring out a myriad of emotions that keep the reader turning the pages rapidly.  A thrilling ride that will have you rooting for the happily ever after between the sexy, lamenting hero and the tough, determined heroine. A definite must read.

    This is the third in a series that can be read as standalones but are best read in order. There are no cliffhangers (thank goodness!!) and each has a happy ending. These are all Over-18 reads.
    Marcus is one of the characters of the previous books and I've been anxiously waiting his story. I was not disappointed!! Ms. Alexander's character development and descriptions have you in the moment from the first chapter. Seriously, no one writes a bad guy any better than this. Marcus must protect his client (Chris) from a stalker who is an intellectual genius...Marcus and Chris have their own issues to deal with while battling the antics of the villain. Reading the stalkers POV will give you chills. The relationship between Chris and Marcus is heartwarming and gentle then burns and sears your soul. You will be rooting for them in the end.
    Well worth starting from the beginning of this series if you have not done so already!!!

    Rating: 4.5/5

    Two years ago Chris Holland's sister, Chelsea, was murdered. Chris fought with the murderer but escaped. Two years later, she still has nightmares. Chris stayed on the move, but he found her time and time again. But now he's gotten closer—inside her home, and he had a message. He would kill her when the time was right. He's letting her live for now, but warns her that if she makes friends, they will die. Unable to handle the situation on her own anymore, she decides to hire help upon a friend's recommendation. Lost and Found Inc. is her last hope.

    Chris and Marcus are definitely my next favorite couple in this series, after Ty and Ana. I really enjoyed the maturity of these two characters and their interaction with one another. Chris wasn't a damsel in distress per se, but neither was she one of those heroines who insists being able of taking care of herself while running headlong into danger. They came across as equals which was very pleasing to read. In fact, the growing relationship was handled very well. It had sexual tension without angst or annoying push and pulls. They were pretty straight forward with their wants and expectations, but they didn't put up a fight as their feelings began to evolve.

    The most thrilling part of any Jerrie Alexander book, for me, is the villain's POV. Out of all of her villains, this one made me squirm the most. The descriptions of his deeds were quite graphic and chilling. I've said it almost every time I've reviewed a Jerrie Alexander novel, if you can stomach some current TV shows featuring serial killers, then you can handle this.

    The story was pretty even in terms of being both character and plot driven. I tried to pick up hints along the way about the who and the why of it all, but I didn't figure it out until the signs became more obvious. I love a story that doesn't give it all away up front. The climax was thrilling, and call me crazy, but I do like the heroine getting a bit roughed up. It just lends more desperation, rage and hope to the entire scenario without crossing a fine line.

    The Bottom Line

    I highly recommend this series. It features hunky alpha males who share an unbreakable bond forged back in their college years. The former military heroes put their resources and skills to good use, helping those who have run out of other options. They all have their flaws, but so far they all seem to embrace the prospect of finding and holding on to love when they find it. The locations and plots are always different, which keeps this series fresh and interesting. It's well-written, sexy and a great way to spend the day—with a thrill and a chill.

    PS: The books can be read as standalones, but it is better to read them in order to avoid relationship spoilers. Each book has a HEA and no cliffhangers!
