Release Day Post and Double Review: Against The Wall by Alexa Land


Don’t start something you can’t

It’s a cliché, but 22-year-old
graffiti artist Christian lives by those words. He’s going away when he
graduates from art school in just six short months. With so little time left, getting
involved with gorgeous Shea Nolan has to be a mistake. If only he could make
himself stay away from the sweet, sexy police officer.

Christian has a decision to make.
Are a few months of happiness worth the inevitable heartbreak when it’s time to
walk away?

Against the Wall is the seventh book in Alexa Land’s
best-selling Firsts and Forever series, but each book can stand alone, so jump
in anywhere. PLEASE NOTE: This male/male romance is for ADULT READERS ONLY. It
includes explicit language and graphic sex.

Denise’s Review:

I started reading Alexa Land’s books shortly very soon after I started reading mm books, on a recommendation from another writer. I started with All In, and then moved all the way through the first five in a weekend. Skye Blue, well, that has a special place in my heart, and always will.

Against the Wall is a big departure for Ms. Land. Christian’s story is not light and happy as the previous book felt. This book has a darkness over it, shadowing Christian throughout. You will cry…you will likely cry a lot. But the journey is so worth it.

We get to see Shea Nolan (Brian’s cousin) again, as he and Christian officially meet in a bar, and go to Shea’s home for a one night stand. These two men find out quickly, though, that one night was not enough for them.

Fortunately, Nana decides to take over-as she often does-and whisks everyone away on a Dotsy cruise to celebrate two weddings. And although, there is lots of fun to be had, you can still feel the undercurrent of Christian planning to leave after school is out in June.

Nana shows up with a few of her crazy antics, of course, and we get to catch up with the entire Firsts and Forever cast. This book though really focuses in on Christian, with his past overshadowing his present and his future, and Shea, the man who continues to work toward breaking down the walls of the man he loves.

Cannot wait to see what is next in this series.  Another fantastic five pieces of eye candy installment! Bring on the tissues!

Morgan’s Review:

With this new addition to Alexa Land’s Firsts and Forever
series, we finally get to see the world through the eyes of Christian,
otherwise known as Zane. Christian is such an interesting person. Art student/street
art extraordinaire he spends most his nights with a paint can in his hands and
adrenaline in his veins. Running from the SFPD has become second nature.
Christian definitely lives his life on the edge, but he has a secret.

The Adorable, somewhat dorky, and gorgeous Shea Nolan has
his eye on Christian. He has seen him around and has been attracted from first
glance, but he can’t see why Christian would ever be interested in him. When he
spots him across the club on his birthday, his friends push him to go over and
say HI. Shea can be slightly accident prone though, and when disaster strikes, he
runs in the other direction. When Christian meets up with him shortly after the
sparks fly.

Christian wants to get to know Shea more, but is scared of
breaking his heart. Christian knows he only has a little time left before he
has to leave and he doesn’t want to get caught up in a relationship knowing it
will inevitably hurt Shea.

Will These two get their Happily Ever After? Make sure you
have lots of tissues ready. The emotions are all over with this on. We get to
see lots of past characters from her series as well as the famous Nana, who we
all adore. We also get to meet new characters that have already become
unforgettable to me. Alexa has once again given us a wonderful book that will
stay with you long after you read it.

Definitely 5 outta 5 for me…
