Limits of Destiny (Volume 1) by Sharlyn G. Branson [Review]

Alexia Welson is very beautiful and men do not fail to notice. Still, she feels unhappy and depressed because she’s never managed to fall in love.

But this quickly changes. At a birthday party, she meets the most eligible bachelor in Switzerland—the young and incredibly ambitious multimillionaire Alexander Kraftberg.
Despite her friend’s warnings against getting involved with him due to his notoriety as a big womanizer, the two begin a love affair full of great passion and powerful sexual attraction.
However, their future is threatened by Alexander’s depraved and dark past.

Upon finding out about his lifestyle, Alexia is shocked. She begins to feel torn and terribly insecure…

3.5 Finding a Brute Stars
Every once in a while I like to pick up a super indie-author. I was instantly drawn to the cover and summary. Limits of Destiny is the first book of a series, but do not be fool, this is a full novel (I thought it was a serial as well). So you will get plenty of steam, action and story.  This is a standalone, but it is also part of a series. Meaning, you can read this book and be satisfied and you can also continue the series.

Alexia goes to a party and runs into Alexander.  Alexander is rich, successful and very alpha.  Its insta-lust at first sight and things get steamy real quickly. You are thrown in the thick of it when you start the read. Within the first 10% Alexia and Alexander meet and have good times. I’m a fan of the Heroine and Hero interacting soon in the book. I like to skip the fluff and get to the good stuff.

Alexia and Alexander have crazy attraction towards each other, but Alexia knows what kind of person Alexander is. He’s had many women before her and how could the girl not feel self-conscience? Cute right? Alexia forms strong feelings towards Alexander a bit too soon in the book. I was a fan of the instant attraction, I just prefer Alexia to let Alexander chase her a bit more.

The book is set in Switzerland and it adds a new and interesting element to the story.  As the story progresses, the relationship between Alexia and Alexander goes deeper. Alexander becomes very protective of Alexia and his jealous side is brought out. I like a possessive male, but at times, it’s best to pick which battles to fight. I was fine with Alexander’s strong feelings towards Alexia, but at some parts it’s distracting, just to me though.

The steam in the book is addictive and you will not be disappointed.  Overall, a standout debut novel. I recommend.
