Review: Alek by Brynn Paulin


Published Aug. 2019

Blurb: One misdirected email changed everything…


For months, Caroline Silver has been emailing a stranger she met purely by accident on the internet. Their nightly cyber-liaisons are perfect—low risk and high fantasy. That is until Caro’s dream man asks her to meet him.


Alek Lebedev has wooed Caro for months from his home in Croatia. When he has the opportunity to visit the United States, he jumps at the chance to finally meet the woman who’s been tantalizing him. Though she says no to the face-to-face encounter, Alek knows exactly how to break down her walls. He’s sure he can persuade her to turn that “No” into “Oh, yes!”


But can one steamy night of lovemaking lead to forever, or will they remain strangers bound only by the anonymous words they’ve written?


NOTE: This book was originally released as With Love, Alek. This is a fast and flirty book. Insta-love? Oh, yes. When it comes to passion, these two run right on in. 


May be spoilers:

Alek has 5 chapters with an epilogue and is about Alek and Caro.

Things started with an accidental email and they’ve continued for months. Things change when he actually wants to meet in person. She wants to, but she’s down on herself.

She’s a little older than he is.

He tracks her down though, which is cute. Lots of steam, which was really good.

Thought it was a cute read. The only drama was her own thoughts.

No cheating, no ow/om drama, separations-distance only after the first blip where she doesn’t respond for a couple of days.

Epilogue is a year out. They are just getting engaged. I do wish it was further out, but it was still a good read. I gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
