    Wow, cover for book #14! Congratulations, Alexa. I think I’ve only read book #1 of the series so far [sheepish smile] but in my defense, the speed of books-releases exceed my reading power severely, LOL. But that one gorgeous smile to have on your book cover! Really nice, indeed.

    About time. 😉

    There was a group poll about River & Cole’s reunion? *gasp* How on Earth did I not know that?! :O

    Anyway, the cover’s lovely. He’s exactly how I’ve imagined River. And the title’s badass. I love it, Miss Alexa! <3

    Congrats on the book cover, I can see River now. Lol. Oh wow, I never thought of a 2nd chance for River and Cole because of obvious reasons. River couldn’t take the fighting constantly and that was the only way Cole learned to communicate basically. I’m glad they are getting a 2nd chance. Oh wow. Looks like I have to start reading from the beginning again. Lol. ❤
