Trace Jennings was the brother who most enjoyed his time alone. He never thought about spending the rest of his life with someone, until he found her on his ranch.
Addison Becket is on the run. She’s finally eighteen and able to break free of her father’s control, but taking off on a stormy night landed her in a stranger’s bed.
Trace is everything Addison dreamed of and more, and neither of them has the urge to let go. Can love at first sight truly exist? And will it be enough to keep them together while others try to tear them apart?
Please. This is an Alexa Riley hero. She’s not going anywhere.
Warning: This short story is filthy good, with co-dependency at its peak! These two people are absolutely crazy, and it if wasn’t so sweet, it would be certifiable. Go ahead and suspend your reality while you float away with this cloud of ridiculous!
The Wanted Virgin is book 3 in the Cowboys and Virgins series and so far, my least favorite. Don’t get me wrong, there is still a lot to like about the story, but I just didn’t enjoy it as much as other Alexa Riley books.
Trace is the brother of Ty and Blake. Addison/Baby Doll, has run away from her father and crashed her car on Trace’s land. He takes her in and knows right away she is the one for him. I think my struggle came from Addison’s behavior. She was an abused girl who was about to be sold to a stranger. Yet, she has no problems with Trace or falling for him right away. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am usually all for the insta love trope. Also, I know when you grab an AR book, you have to sort of put reality on a high shelf far away. But, Addison was just totally out there. I could not get into their story at all.
Plus sides to the book? Its AR, so there is hot sex. Trace is also all kinds of bad ass when confronting Addison’s father. Swoon!

Other Alexa Riley books…because honestly, I am not sure what to even compare them to! then you will probably like The Wanted Virgin!
You’re really going through these Alexa Riley books, huh? Good for you. Thanks for the review!
These books have become my own version of crack! I can’t get enough of them!!
I can’t wait to read this one, the first two in this series were so entertaining and sweet. I can’t get enough of cowboy stories.
