“I believe some people are inherently evil. I believe guilt is a powerful motivator. I believe redemption is something you can strive for but never fully achieve. I believe second chances exist only in dreams, never in reality. I believe you don’t have years, or months, or weeks to impact a person’s life. You have seconds. Seconds to win them over, And seconds to lose them.”
Leading into the third book of this series, all I can say is, “Keep them coming!”
Charlie was an interesting character. The daughter of a criminal forced to live a lifestyle she never wanted. She was desperate make things change and resourceful enough to find a way. I liked her. She was nobody’s fool and tough as nails.
Cain, our hero, is sexy and sweet. Who doesn’t love a tough guy with a heart of gold? He comes along and gives Charlie the chance she needs to change her situation. Protective and helpful when she needed him, Cain is a great leading man.
Together they have excellent chemistry. This is where the story excels. The characters and storyline are really well developed. The reader drawn in and kept there until the end. OH! And the end! Let me tell you, I am a sucker for a romantic suspense! They are my favorite, so when the ending went full-on suspense, I was game. It was kickass!
“For all that I hate about what I’ve done, there’s one thing I can’t regret.
It led me to him.”
The only thing I didn’t love about this book was the pace. At times I was a little bored, feeling that it moved a little slower than I would have liked. By the time the story ended, the pace really didn’t matter. If you like the characters, but find yourself bored, push through because it was worth it.
4 Stars and pair is with Southern Comfort on the rocks!
