BOOK REVIEW...Then Came Alexandra (Southern Love #1) by E.L. Todd

Title:  Then Came Alexandra (Southern Love #1)
Author:  E.L. Todd
Publication Date: March 14, 2014
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:   A mafia prince who doesn't want the crown.
A girl who has secrets of her own.
One love that they'll both have to fight for.

Nicky Ragusa lives his life inside the cage, circuiting the underground ring to escape his fate as the mafia prince. When Jackie Marks crashes into his life, he’ll take the fight outside the cage.

But the battle for Jackie’s heart comes with a steep price. Nicky’s father has wanted him to take over the family business for years, and the time for running is over. Now Nicky is right where his father has always wanted him: in the middle of a war.

All Nicky has ever wanted to do was fight. Now all he has to do is fight for her.

After catching her boyfriend of two years cheating on her, Alexandra finds herself moving far, far away from her New York stomping ground and back in her home roots of Georgia.

Now faced with having to restart her entire life with school, a new job and friends, and keeping her aunt's cotton acre alive, how will she succumb to the new changes?

And with a guilty conscious to mend, will Alexandra ever forgive herself and continue her dream of working as a nurse?

Now throw in three men who are out to win her heart with one's ex flame still very much in the picture and you have yourself a story!

My thoughts: I'll admit, there was one point of the story where it really dragged and I nearly gave up on it. But I'm glad I didn't.

In all retrospect, I, in fact, really enjoyed this story. It's crazy how she has to juggle three men vying for her affection but I guess when you're the new girl in town it's easy to make a splash upon men. Hmm.

I really now can't wait to see how things unfold even more in book two as Alexandra finds herself even more in a tricky situation and the stakes rising. It's going to be interesting for sure!

And as for Blaise, her love interest, I hope he really puts his foot down with Danielle and even his uncle in the next installment!! They really need to be put in their places! Grr!

So anyway, a very fast and easy read about love, passion, trust, forgiveness, starting anew, and chasing your dreams!

Until then, I will be anxiously on the lookout for book two, Then Came Indecision, coming to you real soon!
