Review 'Forever Alexa' by Cate Beauman
First grade teacher and single mother Alexa Harris is no stranger to struggle, but for once, things are looking up. The school year is over and the lazy days of summer are here. Mini-vacations and relaxing twilight barbeques are on the horizon until Alexa’s free-spirited younger sister vanishes.

Ransom calls and death threats force Alexa and her young daughter to flee their quiet home in Maryland. With nowhere else to turn, Alexa seeks the help of Jackson Matthews, Ethan Cooke Security’s Risk Assessment Specialist and the man who broke her heart.

With few leads to follow and Abby’s case going cold, Alexa must confess a shocking secret if she and Jackson have any hope of saving her sister from a hell neither could have imagined.

My Review:

‘Forever Alexa’ is already the sixth book I’ve read in the Bodyguards of L.A. County series. Ever since I started this series a view months back I’ve been completely hooked. Not only is the romance amazing, the characters are great, the writing is very good and keeps you on the edge of your seat and best of all.. These books can be read in any order.

Ever since I read about Jackson in one of the other books I became super curious about his and Alexa’s story. So when I had a free spot on my reading list I dived in as fast as I could.

In ‘Forever Alexa’ we meet Alexa and her daughter Olivia. When Alexa’s younger sister gets kidnapped right in front of her, Olivia is all Alexa has. Desperate to save her sister, Alexa tries everything to get her back. But when the kidnappers start to threaten Olivia, Alexa decides to go to L.A. and find Jackson. Alexa and Jackson haven’t seen each other in four years. When Jackson broke up with Alexa, she was heartbroken but now he might be the only one who can help her.

Jackson never forgot about Alexa. And when he sees the little girl Olivia, who looks just like him he knows he has to try everything to get Alexa back into his life and protect them from harm. 

Every time I start a new book in the Bodyguards of L.A. County series I’m afraid I won’t like the book as much as I did the others. But every time I’m surprised and completely fall in love with this series all over again. ‘Forever Alexa’ is a great story I just couldn’t stop reading. I read it in just one day because I just really needed to know how it ended.

The romance between Alexa and Jackson is amazing. There is a lot of chemistry and you can just feel how much they love each other. Now, but also all those years ago. 

The best part of this book for me was the relationship between Jackson and his daughter Olivia. I loved reading about these too. It was just so touching to read how they got to know each other, and loved each other almost right away. I was really touched by their relationship. And Olivia was just downright cute!

There were also definitely some thrilling moments in this book. Especially in the end. Cate Beauman made sure I was sitting on the edge of my seat and I didn’t want it any other way.

Another great book if you ask me!
