Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review.
It’s common to refer to the main characters in a romance story as the heroes, but there are no heroes in this book. Eric West is an unabashed crime lord, and Will fully admits to being a bit of a sociopath.
Together, they find love!
It’s a dark and twisted road getting there, full of lies, secrets from the past, violence, and murder. Though this book is a romance, it doesn’t necessarily read like a romance, and I wouldn’t have been surprised if the dark moment had been the end of the book, full stop. This story is not an easy read, and probably nothing I’d have picked up on my own. But I have faith in this author’s way with language and ability to tell a tale, and in that regard, she does not disappoint.
This isn’t your typical love story, but fans of Sara Dobie Bauer should not miss this one.
