After her parents died during her senior year of high school, Alexa Morgan is completely alone in the world—except for her best-friend-turned-boyfriend Devin, identical twins Becca and Jessa, and Sebastian, a mysterious associate of her father’s.
Upon graduation, Alexa wants nothing more than to move on with her life, go to college, and forget all the hard and hurtful things from her tragic past. But when her first love, Ethan, shows up on her doorstep—the night before she’s supposed to meet Devin in Miami—it kicks off a whirlwind of events that threatens the good and stable things she’s worked so hard to achieve.
Ethan and Alexa shared one night of passion before he disappeared, leaving her bewildered and confused. But now he’s back, declaring that he loves her and that the only reason he left was to protect her from his malicious stepmother, Olivia.
In her heart, Alexa knows she loves Devin, but her attraction to Ethan is so strong she can’t help but be drawn in by their shared chemistry. Meanwhile, the threat of Olivia lurks around the edges, casting a menacing shadow over everything and everyone Alexa loves.

My oh my. What a series. Please read the first book, it must be read. I promise you will not be disappointed. My review will be short and sweet because you need to read this series to fully experience it all….I will say you may or may not want to have some tissues for this installment.
Alexa Loved is a continuation of Alexa’s journey. This book finds her with Devin and happy. Until Ethan returns and literally turns he world upside down. I truly wanted Alexa and Ethan to be together but I will say that Devin grew on me in this book with his love for Alexa. He does not give up and it was downright swoon worthy at times. The roller coaster ride of their love triangle left me in tears, with a lump in my throat, feeling the characters pain and then healing…it was the mother load of emotions.
I was definitely NOT expecting the turn of events and they left me speechless and heartbroken but by the end of the book I was left with a feeling of peace for Alexa. I didn’t take any breaks reading this book…I just couldn’t. I needed to know what happened! And I truly was not disappointed.

Alexa Morgan lost her mother when she was two. At eighteen, her father and stepmother died when a devastating earthquake hit the Bay Area. Only one person has remained a constant in her life: Devin.
Devin has been Alexa’s best friend since childhood. The two are inseparable—or they were until Devin declared his love for her at sixteen. When Alexa can offer him only friendship in return, Devin retreats, brokenhearted.
Alexa, on the other hand, longs for Ethan, the boy next door. Four years older than her, and with an ever-changing roster of girlfriends, Ethan is everything Devin isn’t: wild, sensual, and unpredictable.
In the aftermath of the deadly earthquake, Ethan makes his move on Alexa, who reciprocates in a confused whirl of grief and desire. When Ethan leaves town the next day, Devin comes back into Alexa’s life, offering support and expecting nothing in return.
Alexa begins to see the advantages of Devin’s quiet, stable love. Can she get past the friendship hang-up while trying to forget bad boy Ethan? It’s a choice that changes her life forever.
