Review: Elias ( West Bend Saints #1 ) by Sabrina Paige

Elias by Sabrina Paige
Excerpt

River Andrews

Call me Cinderella. I'm a rags to riches story - girl from trailer park becomes Hollywood starlet. And I'm about to get my happy ever after.

That is, until I walk in to my house, three hours before my wedding, to find my rock star fiance sticking his c**k down my sister's throat.

With cameras behind me, filming.

I'm running from the whole humiliating thing. I'm not prepared to run straight into him- Elias Saint.

He's completely wrong for me- damaged, dirty, and demanding.

But once he touches me, I can't walk away.

Elias Saint

Some people carry their wounds on the inside. Every f**cking step I take, I'm reminded of mine.

I lost my leg in Afghanistan. Since then, I've just been lost.

Now I'm going back to West Bend, Colorado, the place my brothers and I ran like hell to get away from.

And she's hitched a ride- River Andrews.

A f**cking movie star.

This isn't a fairytale. Happy endings don't exist. And I'm no f**ing Prince Charming.

But, for her, there's a chance I might be.

Review

I didn't have a lot of expectation when I picked this up. I simply interested to read it after reading an excerpt in Prick. I'm looking forward to some no nonsense sexy read and I got it in Elias.

River Andrews, is a famous actress on the run from her messed up life in Hollywood. She then found solace and peace when she hitched a ride with Elias and end up in West Bend, Colorado.

Elias Saint, is a retired Navy with a busted leg, who is reluctant to return back his hometown West Bend, where his family is the social pariah. Having stumble upon River might just be the distraction he needs to endure going back home.

I enjoyed their small town romance fling and Elias is such an interesting grumpy ass cum dirty talker. They have such a great chemistry together and some of their sarcastic banter give me some fun eye rolling moments. 

Despite this isn't some profoundly deep read, I find both their characters are rather fleshed out. We learned a lot of their background and childhood growing up. I've met all of Elias brothers and I'm totally intrigue by Silas, his twin brother. I'm surprised that there is a mystery towards the end in regards to the Saint family. Can't wait to read the next one.

Rating 4/5
