Lexi - Lexi #0.5



LexiThe ending of an unhealthy relationship leaves Lexi Reed damaged, broken and alone. Fighting against self-doubt and an unsupportive family she runs away to Europe in an effort to not only heal but to discover who she is.

Settling in Rome had never been the plan but when the opportunity presented itself Lexi rolled with the punches. Lexi doesn't believe in a happily-ever-after, instead she enjoys the spoils of the majestic city and the many men that crossed her path, vowing to never again give away her heart.

When Lexi flirts with Riccardo Cassius, a good-looking stranger, she has no idea that he is the youngest son of one of the wealthiest and most influential families in all of Rome. The knowledge that he was “off-limits” inciting her desire for him further. Just one night, that’s all she asked. What Lexi hadn’t counted on was Riccardo’s unwillingness to let her walk away.
Rebelling against his conservative upper class family and the crazy relationship rules she has imposed, Riccardo fights to keep Lexi in his life and defy the odds. How far will each of them go? Will Lexi allow Riccardo into her heart or is she destined to break his?

Lexi is a standalone novella in the Lexi Series. The prequel to A Twist of Fate, it delves into Lexi’s past and explores how she evolved into the impulsive, feisty woman who doesn't allow other’s ideals to define her.

The Review

You will find yourself asking "How can this book be free!". Oh how much I have missed Lexi. Such a strong powerful woman; independent, a go getter, an inspiration to women all over the world. I have to say I'm finding it very difficult to write this review my emotions are all over the shop as this is the end of an era for me! I have followed Lexi's journey and this is fantastic addition to the series. This shows us where it all began for Lexi; reasons behind how she became who she was when she met Power Station.

I just want to say that T.Gephart's writing never ceases to amaze me! Her writing style is unique, you find yourself feeling like you know every single character, from the Adonis that is Riccardo to Luigi and Maria who owned the restaurant. All of T.Gephart's characters all have their place which make you feel like you know every one of them on a personal level.

I love the journey Lexi takes in this book she makes poor decisions (HOWEVER, VERY HOT DECISIONS), she is in a place of transition and is living her life the way she wants to, she soon realises it's time to face the world as an adult!

I cried at this book, which is no surprise to me at all. The raw emotions in this book made me cry for the loss of Lexi, my IDOL!

All I have to say is T.Gephart nailed it again! She never disappoints to make me feel connected and inspires me as a woman! I feel emotionally raw today and cannot even begin to think of how I will be able to pick up another book. Although, I'm still to read High Strung by this very capable, talented author. Thank you so much T.Gephart and I hope many more women discover the story of Lexi, as it is one that will stay with me forever!
