I love Shay Savage’s books and Alarm was another one of hers that I really enjoyed. She really knows how to write strong, sexy males! Unlike the rest of Shay’s books, Alarm is told from the point of view of the female lead, Chloe. Even though Chloe was a little reserved at first I liked seeing the world from her view.
Chloe played everything safe; she never spoke without thinking before she spoke, never did anything without planning it out first, and never did anything that was considered dangerous. She lived her life in her safe little box. Well, that’s until she meets Aiden Hunter. To strangers Aiden looks like a very scary man, covered from neck to feet in tattoos and built like a body builder, Aiden comes across as very intimidating. But under the rough exterior Aiden is actually a gentle, caring man with lots of secrets and a sad past.
A night out with friends leaves Chloe too drunk to drive home, in walks Aiden with a helping hand and a ride home. Chloe is drawn to Aiden, so when he offers for her to come home with him to Miami for the week Chloe excepts even though everything in her body is telling her NO! Chloe enjoys a week of trying new things, stepping out of her comfort zone and allowing Aiden into her heart all the while her inner alarm is telling her this is too crazy but together Chloe and Aiden just might learn how to actually live.
I enjoyed Alarm, I liked Chloe even though she over thought pretty much everything at first, but that’s what made Aiden so great. He taught her how to stop doing that and just be. Even though Chloe and Aiden looked like complete opposites they were perfect for each other, he was like the Yin to her Yang. There was never a dull moment in the book, it jumps right into the story and just keeps moving with the next adventure they take. Plus there is some mystery and action mixed into the story. So a little bit of everything for everyone.
