    1. 3.5 Poppy Stars!This wasn't my first book by Victoria Paige, and it definitely won't be my last. She uses a great formula for her books:1. Romance2. Strong main characters.3. Her stories are plot driven.The male characters are alpha but when it starts getting a bit extreme they always show that that softer side to balance things out. So let me start with my all my gripes, just to get that out of the way because for the most part I really did enjoy this story. My main issue was how long it took f [...]

    2. 4.5 second chance stars!!Ever since I've read It's Always Been You, I couldn't take my mind off of Gabe and Beatrice. I'm a sucker for a second chance at love trope. Plus the possibility of a groveling hero makes me absolutely giddy. Giddy. And guess what? This one delivered on the groveling and then some. Gabe Sullivan and Beatrice Porter were sorta an item three years ago. And just when they were about to take their relationship to the next level, Gabe suddenly took off and left Beatrice high [...]

    3. FOUR STARS!The next best thing to salivating over a flesh and blood military man is salivating over a fictional military man. And joy of all joys, this book had my salivating skills maxing out throughout the whole read. And if that makes me sound pathetic, well, lets just chalk this up to moments where I should learn to filter my inner thoughts. *awks laugh*Always Been Mine follows in the same vein of it's predecessor It's Always Been You. Filled with action, mystery and intrigue, readers follow [...]

    4. **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**Title:Always Been MineSeries:Always #2 Author:Victoria PaigeRelease date: December, 2014Rating:4 starsCliffhanger:No HEA:(view spoiler)[Yes(hide spoiler)]First off, let me start by saying that although this is technically a standalone, I highly suggest reading book one before you start this. If you don't, I have doubts that you'll be able to get through this comfortably. The characters and plot overlap and are pretty tightly interwoven together ma [...]

    5. Always Been Mine is book 2 in the Always series. Although I read book 1 about 4 years ago I remember thinking it was an ok read and that is exactly how I felt about this one. I thought it started out really well and I do love second chance romances but unfortunately overall it fell short for me. I found it long, drawn out and boring at times. Gabe and Beatrice were really hot together and I loved how hard Gabe worked to get her back. Overall this author has potential to me because I would consid [...]

    6. Available now: : amazon/dp/B00QJFVF9K UK: amazon/gp/product/B0 Australia: amazon/gp/product/BInstead of posting a review of my own book. I'm writing a post-analysis of the why/how I wrote the book the way I did. Enclosing in spoiler quotes, so don't read until you've read the book!! This may answer some questions and it may not. :)(view spoiler)[I always wondered if one book will be harder to write than the previous one. But each one is a cumulative learning experience. Even when I’m faced wit [...]

    7. Romance + Suspense equals another exciting read! This romantic suspense is about a shattered and broken relationship and the hero's determination to mend it despite the evil forces involved in illegal espionage activities and deadly secrets from the the hero's past. It took a while for me to warm up to this couple because there were broken and hurt feelings between the two for a while from their devastating breakup. Gabe could not reveal his undercover work for the government when he left Beatri [...]

    8. Another good suspense/romance, romance/suspense book from Victoria Paige. I liked it but not as much as book one, It's Always Been You. The number of characters and plot twists had me a little dizzy. I love the challenge of (trying) to figure out the plot/who done it. The last 1/3 of the book had the majority of twists and turns. Before all that, I really enjoyed Gabe trying to get back with Beatrice. The POV was 3rd person back and forth Gabe-Beatrice. Gabe's explanation for his 3 year absence [...]

    9. She was his light. His prize. His redemption.4.25+ RATING- Wow. Just finished Always Been Mine by Victoria Paige and can definitely say it was another fast paced, high octave, romantic suspense story! While my overall rating was a bit higher for book one in the Always series (It's Always Been You), that's not a reflection at all on the quality of this second book. The first book in the series happens to feature an amnesia romance which happens to be one of my favorite guilty pleasure story lines [...]

    10. **This was an ARC copy given by the author for a honest review**4.5-5 starsWhat a great story! I have to say that things started out rough between Gabe and Beatrice upon his return. While his motives are understandable later they're hard to forgive at first. Combine that with bad guys shooting and doing other stuff that causes issues and Beatrice and Gabe have a lot to deal with. Beatrice is the daughter of an Admiral who works with the CIA. He's been mostly and absentee father and she resents h [...]

    11. Arc provided by the author in exchange for an honest review3 stars. Just like the first book, this story was much more than just a romance, but had lots of spy-political-gangster-drug trafficking themes entwined into the mix too. This provided a basis for a good storyline and for the most part I wasn’t disappointed. Beatrice, who we met in book one, is a security consultant and provides work to companies like that owned by Travis (the hero from book one). So we know quite abit about her – na [...]

    12. I loved the first book in this series and could not wait for this one! This is a second chance romance for our h Beatrice and H Gabe. Their relationship ended badly the first time but Gabe is determined this time. I love a man groveling! I love these characters and we get to see some of our old friends in this one. If you love romantic suspense books add this to your shelf!

    13. Bloody Brilliant!!This was by far Victoria Paige’s best book yet. I started this book not sure if I would like it or not. What I did know about the main characters left me with a feeling of “are they really meant for each other?” Beatrice came across as self-centered and spoiled while Gabe seemed bossy but also a bit selfish.Getting to know Gabe and Bea changed my opinion of them completely. Gabe was a lost soul after his last mission but was determined to win Bea back after the heartbreak [...]

    14. DNF @ 77%The romance side of the story had a lot of potential but the author spends way too much time on the political/intelligence side of the story. If I wanted to read a political thriller I'd have read a political thrilleris is supposed to be a romance. If I'm spending over 40% of the book reading about explanations of various intelligence policy/implementation issues it overshadows the romance part of the story. I needed more time spent on the romance and the rebuilding of the H/h relations [...]

    15. 3.5 Suspenseful stars. Gabe was awesome. After I started liking him again that is. At first he just made me mad. Then Bea made me mad. Took a while to like the characters at all. This had a rocky start and I hung in there. I felt that things just had to play out a certain way to make the love between Bea and Gabe believable. It worked in the end. Way more mystery and suspense than romance. I am in a sappy mood so if I had read this at a different time in my life I'd probably have loved it more. [...]

    16. How do I write about this book without fangirling?I don't. OMG I LOVE YOU VICTORIA PAIGE AND I LOVE ALL YOUR BOOKS!!!!!!!!Now that THAT is out of my system, I can be serious. This is my new favorite VP book. It had everything I love about books: romance, HOT sex, action, hot military-type guys, cameos of beloved characters from other books of hers, surprises and twists, and a really terrific story that makes it difficult to put down.She must research things to death, because the plot is SO smart [...]

    17. 4-5 stars.Advanced copy received for honest review.Some spoilers.The premise of this book was 50% right up my alley and 50% not my typical genre. I liken these books to a fabulous date movie. Whether you and your guy are in to action/suspense and/or romance with some definite steam, you get it all.I wasn't sure what to think when I first started Always Been Mine. The second chance love story grabbed me right away. I loved Gabe almost immediately. I knew there must be a really good reason he chan [...]

    18. ARC kindly provided by author in return for an honest reviewI have been desperately waiting for Bee’s (and I was hoping Gabe’s) story since reading “It’s always been you” and I was so excited when Victoria said it was Gabe and they will get their second chance.This book is technically a standalone but don’t miss out on reading the first book it’s amazing and adds to the experience of this one. Bee and Gabe’s book did not disappoint, I fell in love with Bee and Gabe and felt for e [...]

    19. After reading It's Always Been You I wasn't too sure about Beatrice, she did not come across as the kind of heroine I would love but knew Victoria Paige would not disappoint so dived into this and did not come up for air. I LOVE:A second chance romanceA bloody good grovelA hot alpha male that will do anything for his girlA heroine that knows her own mind and takes no crapA strong romantic suspense Holy cramoly, I got this in spades!! There was a strong suspense/intrigue plot throughout that kept [...]

    20. It took me a while to get into this book (10%) - others kept pre-empting it and it was a little slow in the beginning. When I pushed through, I discovered that I liked it and finished in one sitting. The action, the story and the relationship were good. The h did not take him back immediately - he did have to work for it. The H had some issues after having been in deep undercover for a couple of years. I will read others in the series. 3.5 stars.

    21. Super fantastic! d an interesting conundrum I find myself in at this point. I want to tell you why this book was so great, but if I give you even a vague hint, it would ruin what is sure to be a surprise for fans of Victoria Paige's books. So, I'll skip the plot analysis, and just say- do yourself a favor and read this great book. Final thoughts: War heros most certainly do come in all shapes and sizes. #teamRhino!

    22. He never forgot his love… This is the second book in the Always series that can be read as a stand-alone but having read the previous book will enhance the reading.Beatrice Porter is the daughter of an Admiral and has inherited his talents; she coordinates security for important people. Years ago she fell in love with a Navy Seal breaking her rule of falling in love with a man like her father, a man totally dedicated to his job, knowing the damage such intensity of purpose did to her parent’ [...]

    23. 4.5 starsBeatrice always said she would never fall for a man like her father and live the life her mother did but Gabe changed all that. In a short time, he pursued her hard and even though she tried to fight it, she fell hard for him. Only to have him break her heart and walk away.Now, Gabe is back and he is not giving up Beatrice againbut the wall she has built around her heart will be hard to break down. Beatrice is determined to move on and leave Gabe in her past but danger around ever corne [...]

    24. 4.5 stars In the first book of the Always series “It’s Always Been You”, we were introduced to Bee as the supermodel looking friend, colleague of Travis Blake. And Gabe Sullivan as an ex-Navy Seal, whom she was in a relationship with. In “Always Been Mine”, we get to explore Gabe Sullivan and Beatrice Porter’s relationship. It is hot and heavy, until one night when he walked out on her and left her with a broken heart. But you see, she is a daughter of an Admiral. She’s gorgeous, s [...]

    25. Received an ARC for honest reviewLOVE IT!! I love the cover of this book. So for the story now, how can you not love it. I usually try not to add spoilers in the reviews but how can I not help it. Not that it is really a spoiler on the story itself but if are a fan of Victoria Paige like I am have read her other Guardian series you will be pleasantly surprised in this story. I was like HOLY Shit, Maia and Viktor make an appearance. Of course when they made their appearance it reminder of scene i [...]

    26. 4 1/2 stars. Very exciting romantic suspense. I thought it had a great combination of strong characters, exciting suspense and action, and steamy (but not overdone) intimate scenes. I enjoyed the fact that their relationship was rocky at the beginning, but I really felt the characters' chemistry, and could picture them together as a couple. Secondary characters were entertaining also, and there were a few surprises I was not expecting. I do enjoy this author's writing style, and the way she tell [...]

    27.

    28. ARC provided by Victoria Paige. Thank you, dearAlways Been MineVictoria Paige4 brightly stars Yep! I really liked this book, Mrs. Paige shows us a intense and turbulent romance between Gabe and Beatrice.Bee is disillusioned and embittered by what happened three years ago, Gabe is desperate to retrieve her, and in the middle of it all, there is an intricate spy story and revange that leaves us on tiptoe to the end. The mais plot is interesting, although not as much as the first - Travis was a bea [...]
