Aligned: Volume 1 by Ella Miles

He's an arrogant complication.

I don't care if Landon Davis has sold millions of records.
I don't care that his damn crooked grin makes my panties wet.
I can't want him.
I should be mourning, but I can't. I just need him gone.
Then I can align the chaos floating in my head.

She has a f*cking boyfriend.

I've seen the picture of them together.
But Alex Blakely still wants me.
And who am I not to oblige when her body is begging for me?
I need one night to own her body.

I should be focused on getting my career out of the gutter.
I'll take one night first. Then I'll be gone.

***Aligned: Volume 1 is the first novella in a four-part contemporary romance series and ends on a cliffhanger. Volume 2 is also a novella and currently available. Volumes 3 & 4 will be full length novels coming spring 2016.***

I completely enjoyed this novella! Alexa is recovering from a horrible car accident in which she lost her husband. Landon is an up & coming pop star. He sees Alexa in their shared condo complex having some issues struggling with groceries and her crutches and rushes to help. Alexa is instantly smitten by Landon's good looks and charm, but her past is still haunting her along with her missing limb. The two have some great chemistry together as the story unfolds! We get some bits and pieces of Alexa's horrific life changing past and also some insight into Landon and his sexual proclivities, but just enough (almost frustratingly so) to keep us wanting more. The book was over before I saw it coming and I was left groaning in frustration. Certainly wanting the next installment! Story has great potential and I liked the author's writing style. Solid 4 stars for me.

Alexa was in a horrible car crash that took her leg. It's only been a few months post-accident. She's having anxiety attacks whenever she's in a car. She doesn't have her prosthetic yet and finds herself unable to balance at times even with the help of crutches. When she falls in the lobby of her condo, she's drawn to the sexy man who comes to her rescue.

Landon Davis is a musician. He writes what he knows, his relationship with Caroline provided tons of number one hits, but now he's coming up blank. That is, until he meets Alexa Blakely. Something about her draws him in. She is lighting that creative spark in him again.

But there is more to this story than meets the eye. Who's the man in the photos she has in her condo? Is Landon really done with Caroline?

I didn't know what to expect with Aligned, but I can say I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the suspense elements. I need to find out what happens, or should I say what happened? I can't wait to read the second volume, hopefully it holds the answers I need.

This was a surprisingly awesome book. There was a bit of mystery and a whole lot of pain that Alexa is trying to deal with when she first meets Landon. And I have to admit that I didn't particularly care for Landon at first, but he grew on me as we learned about him more and more.

They both have a complicated story with a lot going on that makes for an interesting relationship...if can even be really called that. I found it very interesting and can't wait for more about these characters.

I really, really liked that Alexa is dealing with the loss of a limb, but she isn't letting it hold her back, she isn't letting it become the end of her life. She is strong and determined and I really liked that about her.

There is definitely a lot of answers that we didn't get, but knowing that it is a four-part series, I understood there would likely be some.

This was my first book by this author and I can't wait for more because it was so very well written.

I really like the way this series is starting. I'm digging the suspense this first novella brings. The story and characters are well written and I felt like it was over way too soon – so many unanswered questions! I'm really enjoying Ella Miles’s writing style and I can't wait to read the second book.

Ella Miles writes sexy romance with strong females that could kick your butt if you piss them off, which they often do to the men that fall for them. She's currently living her own happily ever after near the Rocky Mountains with her high school sweetheart husband. Her heart is also taken by her goofy two year old black lab that is scared of everything, including her own shadow. Ella is the author of the Aligned and Maybe series.
