LEX by S.K. Logsdon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow... I finished reading Lex a few days ago, and Iam still thinking about it. I have been trying to figure out how to review it without giving all the secrets away. So, I hope that Iam able to do it justice and convey how much I think you should read it.
First, let me tell you, Lex is out of the box. Way out of the box. And if you are a closed minded person, then this one is not for you.
Here is the author's warning--->Note: This is a story of finding oneself, through the horrors and pains of life. This isn't just a story about love. It's a story about anguish. This is a story about Lex's journey to acceptance.
Caution: This book contains heavy adult sexual context, which may include f/f and/or m/m scenes. Some heavy emotional scenarios, including ones of abuse, might be difficult to read. For ages 18+
Not for Close minded people.
So, on to my review:
I love a book that keeps me guessing. Lex is book 1 in SK Logsdon's new series "Unconventional Hearts". Lex kept me on my toes. I was not sure what to expect with it, and Lex was such an amazing surprise, that Iam going to be author stalking until the next book in the series comes out.
I loved Lex. She was not your typical heroine. She was confident, self sufficient, smart, sassy and successful. She was living her life, the way she wanted to and taking names while doing it. She was a bit of a loner, and had major trust issues, but as you are able to see into her past, you begin to understand why she keeps to herself. She throws her life into her successful business and work is her life's mission. She has given up on love, and resigned herself to a life of being single. Lex was a survivor. She was able to overcome a past that literally makes your heart hurt for her. When most people would of folded and given up, Lex rose to the top and didn't let it keep her down. She was amazing.
The leading man was lush. I don't want to name him because it will ruin the surprise. And I must say, that figuring out who he was a huge part of the book. I will call him Suit Master, and as you read the book, you will understand why. Suit Master went above and beyond to win Lex's heart. He was absolutely amazing. His determination to win her over surpasses anything I can accurately convey with words. His patience and understanding of her were out of this world.
Lex and Suit Master meet via an online dating site. And as he begins to woo her, Lex's old fears begin to surface and she pushes him away--at least she thinks she does. Suit Master is not one to give up easily, and is out to prove that he is the one her soul needs. Their love story is not typical. It is not fluffy. And this story is so real, you almost feel like you actually know the characters. The emotion the author was able to capture pulls and tugs at your heart strings and you want to reach in the book and soothe Lex's wounded soul. At times you want to cry with her, times you want to cry for her, and times you want to stand up and be her cheerleader.
Lex is a story of acceptance and one woman's journey to loving herself and risking it all for love. And I realize that this whole review is cryptic and vague. But, I do not want to ruin the story for you. And I promise, that once you dive in, you will understand why it was so hard to write a review for this one. But, I can say-- get your one-clicker ready, because this one is not one to be missed.
