With no more friends and family left alive, and no one out there I can trust, it’s starting to look like my time has finally run out. Until I meet Noah, a persistent stranger with secrets of his own. My efforts to hide from David are failing. So when Noah offers his help, I’m not exactly in a position to decline. But I soon realize I’m not the only one wrapped up in a troubled past and a violent present. My brain has been screaming at me from the inside out, warning me from the beginning that Noah is dangerous. Even still, I’ve agreed to return to the place where it all began—just for the chance to prolong my time with him. And now I have a choice to make: I can continue hiding as I’ve always done, or lie to the only person to know the real me in almost a decade. If everything goes according to plan, David dies. But if I make the wrong choice…well, you get the picture." ...

    Wow! That's really the best way to start this review. This book was so much more than what I initially expected upon reading the synopsis. Paige may in fact be my new favorite female character in a story. Ever. She's strong and smart and bad-a*s. She's been on the run from her ex, David, who is little more than a thug and killed her parents. Now he wants her dead too and eventually this leads Paige to hook up with Noah and his not-so-merry band of criminals. Each one of them is beyond hot, but oh so very different, both in looks and personality. Can they help her get David? What will that mean for her life and theirs?The character development was deep and gave tremendous body to this action-packed book. There is so much to say, but I refuse to give spoilers so that sort of leaves me to talk about the writing. It's smooth and fluent and I was literally sucked-in from the first page. Seriously, I cannot say enough good things about this book and I need more. I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

    Wow! Was this a crazy-action-packed, strong-female-character-narration novel, or what! This novel was gripping from start to finish. Paige acts like no woman I've ever known, fighting back and giving as good as she gets. I love love LOVE her strength of character, the way she tackles anything that gets thrown her way, and not falling for the typical male who ends up saving her butt.I also loved how the author took the usual "I had a bad breakup and a horrible ex" story so much farther.. You can easily connect with Paige, and despise David. I won't go into the plot or whatnot, the synopsis does a wonderful job. Suffice to say, I was never ever bored. Not once.It was a wonderful, surprising read from start to finish. The author delves into the action and world of Mafia with no second thoughts, and her descriptions, dialogue, plot twists are seamless.Had it not been for my "wonderful" day job, I would have read this in one sitting, easily! Looking forward to see the next books that follow this, on my TBR list already :)*I received a free copy in exchange for my true, honest and unbiased review*

    I just finished reading this exciting novel and wow!! I really enjoyed it. The main character Paige is one super cool chick. She hooks up with Noah and the two of them take on hit men and criminals and anyone else who crawls from under a rock. The main character, Paige, reminded me a lot of Lisbeth from Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, except I sympathized with Paige a lot more. To say Paige had a tough life is an understatement. I also enjoyed the dialogue between Paige and Noah. It was entertaining and comical to hear them go after each other especially when deep down I always had the feeling they had the hots for each other.

    Very character- and dialogue-driven. The protagonist is a highly intelligent woman trying to evade a murderously obsessed ex-boyfriend and stumbles into companionship with a group of similarly intelligent and morally ambiguous criminals.The book mostly seems to seek to establish the players and introduce the plot of the series. I'm looking forward to the next one.

    Paige has been on the run from her crazy arms dealer ex-boyfriend for the past nine years when she meets Noah, who claims he knows nothing about her situation but seems strangely intent on helping her out of it. After her family and friends have all been killed on the orders of the ex, Paige is understandably reluctant to trust or get close to anyone. Her life has come down to one thing, and that's taking care of herself. All her instincts warn her away from Noah, and maybe with good reason, but still she's drawn to him and the possibility of finally being able to stop running.The book is in Paige's POV and gives you a clear idea of her personality and thought process. She's full of defensiveness and distrust, which feels natural after the way she's had to live. She's also scrappy, sarcastic, and never stops fighting. I thought the author did a fantastic job in making Paige a well-rounded and relatable character (especially given that most readers probably can't relate to her exact circumstances). The story as a whole flows really well, it's fast-paced and full of fun, snappy dialogue (a favorite of mine). While of course I enjoyed the banter between Paige and Noah, I loved the antagonistic back and forth between Paige and Andrew, Noah's partner who doesn't want anything to do with her. Andrew was an interesting character, dark, sometimes cruel, yet very layered and strangely likable. Also loved Sean. Actually, there weren't really any characters I didn't love.I would recommend this to anyone who loves a fast paced and clever action/suspense novel. It does end on a cliffhanger but if you enjoy the colorful world the author has created, you'll be excited to read the continuation.

    Solitary was a sit on the edge of your seat, biting your nails kinda book. Wow! I loved it! Now, I can't wait to get my greedy little hands on Affinity so I can find out what happens next.Out of all the boys in the world to fall in love with, Paige had to fall for an arms dealer. Of course, she didn't know this until the night David shoots her and walks away. Never looking back. Leaving her for dead. Several years pass by and somehow David continues to torment her. By killing everyone she loves or comes in contact with. Paige knows very well, she could be his next victim. Until, a stranger who surmises she's on the run, promises to keep her safe. Should she put her life in Noah's hands? And should she trust his band of merry fools? Copeland did a fantastic job of creating strong, believable characters who had you flipping the pages. Each and everyone unique in their own right. I'd love to read a spin off about Sean, Andrew, Kai or Hannah.

    This book was one of the finest books of the year for me. I am really shocked that this book is the debut book from the author. Her writing just flows so smoothly. It's different from the kind of books i read but that's what is unqiue about her style and I totally love it. I so wish I could write like that!!Now coming to the story, I really don't want to add anything to the blurb and spoil it. The book is so fast paced that with every page I flipped, something out of the blue happened that left me gawking and asking for more. This book is a bundle of some good action and HUMOR. If i had to put a label to it, i would go with action comedy and it's a rare find.The main protagonist is Paige. Her family and friends were killed by the hands of her ex-boyfriend David who happens to be a big goon. He has been after her life for many years now and so far Paige has managed to escape unscathed. But this story is not about her struggle and pain, it's all about survival. Danger still lingers on Paige's head twenty four into seven and this is a story about her strength, her escapes and her morales. It also shows how much a perosn can change when pushed into survival mode and how the guilt of one's actions is crushed by the need to live.There are four really hot men who work in the same profession whom I couldn't help but fall for. ( I am not including David in this list, because so far I really hate him for all the deaths he has caused and there is nothing to like in him. But I can never tell, the author has it in her to make me fall for the BAD guys and i might end up falling for him in the sequel. Possibility definitely exists).Now coming to the other guys, did i mention they are really really HOT? They are so different from one another yet kind of similar. The BAD guys who look even more hot with a gun in their hand and murderous look in their eyes. My personal favourite is Sean. Fell in love with the guy after his first encounter with Paige and fell more for him in the last few chapters. Noah was a more complex character for me. I could never love him too much because I always felt that he was hiding something and I am kind of glad that my hunch came out to be true!! I never liked Andrew much especially in the beginning. I found him annoying and cocky but towards the end, he won my heart. I have to mention Hannah as well. She is something else. I honestly love her more than Paige. I really hope that there is a separate book for her. i would really love to read more about her.Finally moving on to Paige, I kind of liked her and I didn't also. To be very honest, I totally loved her in the beginning. I saw her as a fighter. She was smart, agile and knew how to pack a punch. But towards the end, I was really pissed with her. I get she has been through a lot, and couldn't trust anyone but she took her doubts and anger to a whole new level. She hated being bossed around and let her anger take over on so many occasions . It led to bigger troubles for her. I really had problems with her trust issues, if only she could trust more and think more logically, I believe it would have saved her a lot of trouble.That being said and done, I liked everything else about the story. There are so many layers to the characters which is unveiled as the story progresses. Though the story deals with a heavy subject matter, it is interlaced with dry humor that actually cracked me up. So overall it was a fun and fast paced read. I loved it a lot a lot a lot and can't wait to read the sequel which thankfully is already published.

    Best action-packed romance I've read in years.I was given a copy of this book for an honest review, and I couldn't be happier with it.I always love romance novels with an action plot, but this took it to a whole new level. The protagonist's (Paige's) spunky personality gave immeasurable depth to the story. The first-person perspective, rich language, and detail offered a play-by-play of her thoughts, pulling me into the story immediately. It was fun getting to follow along on her escapades—feeling what she felt. One of the author's strongest suits is evoking emotion through her writing; making every moment feel real and relatable, even though anyone who reads this probably hasn't and will never go through Paige's dilemma (unless of course you're in the company of killers to escape a psychotic arms dealer).There was always an element of surprise, and even as I thought I had it all figured out towards the end, I was caught off guard. The romance took a darker turn. If you're like me, who is now addicted to this book, you will immediately long for the next. Yes, there are two! And that's perfect, because things are just getting interesting (like really interesting) and there are so many more things that need to be covered in detail.Because I can't resist voicing my opinion first on the subject of developing relationships, I'm rooting for Paige and Sean (for reasons that will lead to obvious spoilers). I really can't wait to see what happens between them, and with Noah, in Affinity.Anyway, I'm in love! Hands down, this is the best book that I've read in years.

    Was given ARC in exchange for an honest review:Really enjoyed this! It was an easy read and the characters were all really interesting. Paige was not what I expected from how the story starts. I guess I thought her meeting Noah meant she was going to be like "save me!" but that's not what happened AT ALL. Then when Kai shows up I thought maybe he will help her. Nope!I was also kind of shocked at the way she acted towards all of these scary people, especially Andrew. That guy sounds creepy AF. For as much as Paige talks about being scared of getting killed she seems to risk her life a lot for the last word. There was times when I just didn't understand why she had to keep running her mouth if she's trying to stay alive.I see from the teaser that Sean will be in Affinity more. I get the impression a love triangle is about to start up. I spent so much time getting attached to Noah though! I get the appeal of Sean too, don't get me wrong. He sounds really hot and I'd be curious how something like that plays out given how this book ends. All in all this book just had a lot of surprises that I didn't see coming. I'll definitely be reading the next one!

    *The author gave me ARC in exchange for an honest review*Honestly, the book surprised me. I don’t usually read this type of fiction, and I went into it with expectations of a simple story – boy meets girl, love follows. What I got instead was a complex story that was filled with suspense; a story that was exciting and full of surprises. The writing is good, and its biggest quality, I think, is the personal nature of the narrator. The free indirect discourse style that the writer has employed serves to give us more insight into the mind with the main character, Paige – a strong yet vulnerable woman. Being so contradictory makes Paige more interesting – she isn’t the one-dimensional girl that I expect in anything involving the suffix ‘romance’.I would go so far as to say that the characters in the piece were its biggest strength, as they were three dimensional, with their own unique voice and, the biggest test of all, they were believable. The dialogue was to the point, which is nice to see.I was hooked by the prologue, kept intrigued by what followed. The ending was excellent, and I will be sure to read the next.

    If you are ready for a bad-ass female character, whose trigger is razor sharp, then you are ready for, Solitary. The scrapes, Paige, the main female protagonist, finds herself in, in her efforts to escape her EX, who wants her dead, is nail-biting. There's so much action in this book, it feels like an action-pack movie. The way the author wrote the characters made them all believable, likeable and/or hate-able. By the time I was 50 percent through the book, I had a clear opinion on whom I wanted to come out the winner, until Sean joins the cast, then I'm back to nail-biting. This is tough. In the end, I feel sorry for Paige, and wish she would find someone to love her… someone she can trust. Will it be Noah, her Good Samaritan or Sean, who thinks her arse is pretty? You’ll have to get a copy to find out. But boy, what a ride!

    I loved the prologue detailing the background to the story and then how it transitions directly into the action. From the beginning, the author has us jumping into a power chick Angelina Jolie -esk scene introducing the spunky, fearless, intelligent, comical protagonist Paige. Strong female heroines are definitely a favorite of mine, and Paige was one extremely likeable character. A writing style as smooth as butter, flawless transitions, and delivering fast on the edge of your seat material, Melissa has got some serious talent. If you are into fearless power chicks, stuck in a more common than you think situation, then you'll love this.

    Solitary is an action-packed romance novel. The main character, Paige, is a bad-ass type of girl who, because of her attraction to bad boys, often gets into trouble. Her life becomes a struggle for survival as danger lurks on each corner. The story is fast moving with many twists and turns. The writing flows smoothly.What I didn’t like was the frequent use of swear words: fucking, shit, etc. almost on every page. Further, I didn’t like the characters so they didn’t keep my interest. And the story was all about them.

    I love books and movies with strong female characters. This wasn't your typical oh I am in danger and I need a man to save me kind of book. even though she seeks help from Noah Paige stands her own ground. It's hard not to write about the plot of this story so I won't, but the book captivated me from the beginning and it was hard to put down. Well written, and I am looking forward to another book written by the author.

    Free copy of the book from the author awhile back. I really liked Noah and Paige together but I like Sean too. And Andrew. All the men. One of each please. It was really angsty but also funny. Of course I like thinking of Tom Hiddleston as Noah. But I like thinking of Tom Hiddleston as everyone so there is that.

    I can't explain how much I enjoyed this book. Awesome twists, amazing plot, and even more amazing characters. I love the badass, Paige, who doesn't waste her time waiting for others to fix her problems. I don't want to give too much away, but if you love suspense novels with tough victims that refuse to be victim then read away. Just know, there's more come. Can't wait to read the next book.

    I'm waiting on the sequel. The book does spend a lot of time getting to know all of the characters involved, but it did so in a way that got me invested. Now I just want to know what happens next. I like the narrator. Her thoughts are funny as hell. I'll recommend it to my friends, but not the ones who are easily offended by bad language.

    Boy! did I enjoy reading this. Right from the first page there was action which kept you gripped throughout. The writting was strong and easy to follow. I couldn't put the book down and read it within a few sittings. Well done to the author for writing such a capitivating story.
