RAID Blog Tour & Contest

Raid (Unfinished Heroes) by Kristen Ashley

Hanna Boudreaux has lived in the small town of Willow, Colorado all her life. The great-granddaughter of the town matriarch, she's sweet, cute and quiet.
Too quiet.
Hanna has a moment of epiphany when she realizes her crush for forever, Raiden Ulysses Miller, is not ever going to be hers. She sees her life as narrow and decides to do something about it.
Raiden Miller is the town of Willow's local hero. An ex-marine with the medal to prove his hero status, he comes home, shrouded in mystery. It takes a while but, eventually, Hanna catches his eye.
But after all these years of Raid and Hanna living in the same town, the question is, why? Is Raid interested in Hanna because she's sweet and cute? Or does Raid have something else going on?

Oh. My. God!!!!  I don’t know how she does it but boy does she do it!  Kristen is like this book creating machine and I would probably be willing to give my first born in exchange for one full day inside her head!  Seriously though, she has done it yet again and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next, because her writing style is beyond addictive and have this way of pulling you in and keeping you hostage until the story is finished!   Y’all know how much I adore my Kristen Ashley men and absolutely LOVE her books… but this one – well let’s just say there is an even more real quality to Raid then there has been to any other KA male!  I’ll get to why… or at least I’ll somewhat explain… later!

Hanna is absolutely loveable!  She’s got this big heart that makes it impossible to not want to be around her.  She’s funny, loyal, sweet as can be, full of love to give, and has become one of my favorite KA heroines!  She’s just one of those characters that you can see yourself being friends with or at the very least wish you were friends with her!  Her relationship with her great-grandmother is freaking awesome… I mean like so awesome I wish I had a great-grandma like hers… they’re close, like super close… and let’s just say that great-grandma is pretty darn awesome herself.  I seriously could have read an entire book about great-grandma – THAT is how awesome she was and it was more than obvious how much she loved her great-granddaughter!  But then there is Raid… the boy she’s had a crush on her entire life… the man that takes her breath away… the man she has finally realized she won’t ever have. 

Raid… well Raid is… pretty freaking amazing!  He’s obviously gorgeous as can be, but he’s also got this sweet spot that just made me want to hug him and love him forever!  He too has this amazing sense of loyalty and this dominating personality that had me wanting to drop to my knees, lower my head, and respond to everything he said with “yes master” – HOT!  He’s not a Dom by any means but he is extremely alpha (as all KA’s men are)!  When he finally takes notice of Hanna he sees something he wants… something he deserves… and he stops at nothing to make sure that she will become his!  But there is something else to Raid that made me love him even more… I will not tell you exactly what it is because that is something you’ll need to see for yourself but I will say that even though he made me extremely mad by how he handled it… it was real… it was very real!

Watching these two fall in love while fighting for each other was beyond beautiful!  The love they had for each other.. the extremes they were willing to go to for each other couldn’t have shown their love for one another any better!   Their actions spoke volumes and I’m more than excited to have been a part of it! 

Like I said before I love all of KA’s books… but I have a major soft spot for her Unfinished Heroes series for sure!  I adored Knight, I had a mad crush on Creed, but there is no question that I am absolutely head over heels in love with Raid!  This is definitely one to check out!!!  Definitely 5 BIG hearts!!
