I absolutely freaking love their story and I recommend reading Heart Break to learn about their before story. Lola is fierce and stands her ground, but inside she is caring. Blue pretends to hurt Lola yet he can't lie about his feelings, he has tried for the past five years now. They are my second favorite couple in the series behind Clara and Giovanni.
Blue and Lola had history - and based on their interactions, bad history. Blue was the head of security for the club where Lola stripped. They had met previously as children when they were briefly in the same foster home.
I struggled with Blue’s meanness in the first half of the book. And for their first sex scene, there was a fine line between abuse and consent. The humiliation was too much for me. I was not a fan. In the end, the secrets were exposed and it came full circle. I did have a hard time keeping up though, some of the storyline just seemed to fall away. I was desiring more explanation and more happiness between Lola and Blue. It was emotional, painful and dark.
Candy, another stripper, is up next so hopefully more of the story will be fleshed out along with Candy’s story in Pretty When You Cry.
Perhaps it didn't grab me as hard because there wasn't a flesh-and-blood villain? The "villain" here was more Blue and Hannah's past, their misconceptions about one another. Their misconceptions about themselves. Their fear of telling each other the truth. It made for a compelling story, even if not quite as exciting (to me) as the previous entries in this series.
I did like the building tension between Hannah and Blue in the earlier parts of the book. I didn't really like Blue when he was pressuring Hannah. I was hoping she'd tell him to kick rocks. Call his bluff. Stop letting him push her around (figuratively). Alas, she didn't. But, they managed to come around to a better place anyway. Thank goodness. I would've hated Blue if that had continued too much longer.
This hasn't been my favorite inclusion in the series so far, but I still liked it. I really like this series overall, and definitely recommend it for a series of connected standalones that are relatively easy reads (not too dark, not super long).
What follows is a very painful scene when he commands her to come to his apartment, which she does, and he is cruel and vengeful. I don't understand why she wouldn't tell him why she lied. The scene was painful for me to read.
It is not until she is attacked, not once, but twice, by one of her clients, that things begin to change.

Hannah and Blue had a brief teenage romance when they shared the same foster home. However Blue was soon removed from the home for reasons unknown to him. Hannah knows the reason though. It was because of her lie. A lie she told to protect him. Blue doesn't see things that way though, and he has harbouring anger at Hannah for the past five years biding his time until he can make her pay.
Now Blue has come back into her life, working security for the strip club Hannah, now calling herself Lola, dances at. She feels his stare constantly on her back and lives in dreaded anticipation of the moment his revenge will strike. When he demands she sleep with him (on the regular no less) to make up for the hurt he caused things start to get muddy as they both realise they feel a lot more for each other that either would like to admit.
Lola was a beautiful and heartbreaking character to read her story had me in tears
