Lexi, Baby
Series: This Can’t Be Happening #1
Author: Lynda LeeAnne

(From Goodreads)

Alexis Sky Martine thinks of herself as the average girl-next-door that does what she has to do to get by, have fun and enjoy life. 
She is madly in love with her sexy, drop-your-panties-at-first-sight, hottie boyfriend who is equally in love with her; more like downright obsessed. He treats her like she is his heart; like he needs her to exist; like he would do anything in his power to make her happy.
Lexi knows Landyn James loves her just as much as she loves him, if not more. Deep down, she also knows high school sweethearts aren’t expected to last, but their relationship is different. They are soul mates. Their connection is unbreakable.

What could possibly go wrong when you have love like that…?
What will the future hold…?
Only time will tell.


Let me warn readers of one thing before reading this book:  CRACK.  You can’t help but keep reading the book even with the cliches and grammar errors.  Throw in a drool worthy cover and I was a goner from page one. I honestly didn’t know if I should give this book a rating of a three or a four.  I wanted to give it the four for the rating, but predictability and cliches tampered the rating down.

Landyn, Landyn, Landyn.  Sex-on-a stick is the best way to describe him.  He is hot, has money, and possessive as hell. He makes a huge mistake that costs him so much.  While I can see the reasoning of Lexi dropping him like an old hat after this mistake, I won’t support her in the decision she makes involving Layla.  I can understand Landyn being mad as hell for this secret.

Ryan felt like an after thought for this plot.  It was like the author needed another cliche or black spot in the dynamics of the drama.  While I found this to be almost too much,  it still kept me reading just to find out what would happen to him.  That boy needs some help and I did notice on the authors website that he will be getting his own book.  After this story though, the author is going to have to bring me a miracle in redeeming this man.

Trish was the typical best friend that was a tad too protective. On the other hand, where was this type of friend when I was younger and needing a leaning post?  I will over look this though and go with the flow. Like, I said — book crack. Must. Keep. Reading.

Also be prepared for the prologue and epilogue to be more like a chapter a piece.  In my opinion, they should have been chapters due to the length of them being quite long.  While this didn’t really bother me, others might have a quirk about this.

The ending leaves the reader on a cliffhanger and ready for another fix. While I couldn’t make a real connection with Tony in this book — mainly because we never really get to read/interact with him except in mentioning — I am anxious to read what happens to him and Trish.  Supposedly, the next book features them both.

While this book won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, I can guarantee that this series and author is going to be addictive to others.  I will be in the group looking for more and hoping for the quick release of more!


Okay book, but it left me wanting more!
