VIRGIN WIFE by Alexa Riley
is the companion book to VIRGIN
HUSBAND. In the previous book, readers are introduced to
best friends Savannah and Aiden who have a marriage of
convenience due to the machinations of Savannah's wealthy
father. Aiden recently found true love and annuls his
marriage to Savannah, even though they both know their lives
will be rife for tabloid fodder. Aiden's actions force
Savannah to have an uncomfortable but long overdue
conversation with her family....but not before the man who's
always secretly loved her snatches her for himself.
When Aiden makes his move to end his sham marriage, Wyatt
Carmichael pounces and quickly sets things in place so that
Savannah will soon be his wife. This is an erotic fantasy,
as only Alexa Riley can do, but it's also a fabulous
unrequited love story. Over the course of the book, Wyatt
details how long he's been in love with Savannah and yearned
for her, and Savannah recalls her first impressions of Wyatt
when they were both teenagers, and her early crush that went
nowhere. Wyatt's actions might seem too highhanded and make
him insufferable, but he is extremely honest with Savannah
about his true feelings for her and his admiration for her.
This emotional honesty and his efforts to give Savannah what
she wants in live make him sexy rather than obnoxious. He
understands the type of house she wants and gives her art
supplies pride of place and secures them in their home where
they'll be safe from people who don't respect her art, like
her father. After years of living in a fake marriage, this
feeling of being catered to and cared for is highly seductive.
VIRGIN WIFE is erotic,
amazing, and the kind of story I want more of. The erotic
and romantic climax when Savannah and Wyatt finally become
physically intimate is explosive and very sensual. More than
just the physicality, they verbally express their feelings
and all the ways that have led to this moment. This is my
favorite type of Alexa Riley story and I hope to read more
stories by her in the future about hopelessly devoted men
who work to win the women they love, and women who get the
men they need.
Savannah has had her entire life planned out by others.
When she was forced into a loveless marriage, all she
could do was try to make the best of it. Until the day
Wyatt Carmichael comes in and wants her for himself. Heâ€™s
been the only man to hold her heart and sheâ€™s wondering
if she can finally have the love and life she deserves.
Wyatt has been biding his time until the perfect moment
to have her. One look at Savannah when he was fourteen
and he was done for. Heâ€™s done everything in his life so
that heâ€™d have his shot, and now that heâ€™s got it, heâ€™s
not leaving anything to chance.
Warning: The second book in this duet can be read as a
stand aloneâ€¦but itâ€™s better if you read The Virgin
Husband first! Can the evil wife get her redemption and
find love all at the same time? Are you kidding us?! Of
course she can! See what happens when the hated wife
finds her happily ever after.
