First Rapture is the first Alexandra Ivy book that I’ve read where the hero and heroine were not furry, fanged, or different in some other paranormal manner. So if you’ve always wanted to try her books out but wanted characters of the human variety her Rapture series is a perfect place to start.

Alexandra starts this book out with an extremely hot memory of Madison’s and the heat simmers to scorching the entire way through this sexy little novella. Madison has returned to Vegas after eight years to purge the sexy Dark Angel Luc from her system once and for all. She has never really gotten over the heartbreaking walk out he did on her years before and she is determined to have her revenge. Little does she know Luc has his own bitter feelings about the way things went eight years ago and now that Madison is in his presence he has some plans of his own.

Oh my Luc is deliciously hot. He says all the right things. It is no wonder he has managed to turn Maddy into the mess that she unravels to. I would be in the same predicament she is in if I had all of that sexy man for an evening and then had to watch him walk away. Even though Luc did something terribly wrong he was still easy to like and fall in love with. Maddy was the same way. A revenger seeker could be easily disliked and viewed as childish or bitter, but Alex made her into such a strong woman you’re cheering her along on her mission while relentlessly hoping Luc gets the girl. First Rapture is an all around win!
