Killian is a man of many talents. He’s the alpha male who owns any room. When he commands, people listen. Surely no one insults or stands up to him...until her.
Jules is complicated. She lives her life trying to make amends for the sins of her father. One of her jobs playing Robinhood brings her right to Killian Black. The man never quits once he finds what he wants and now he wants Juliet.
The chemistry between them just sizzles right off the pages. He’s full steam ahead, but she puts on the brakes. The last thing she needs is a man just like her father.
It doesn’t take Killian long to knock down some of her walls so that she can see that he is nothing like her father. Trust in her world is hard earned. Killian will have to show her just how far he’s willing to go. He’s not what she thinks, he has a big secret. She’ll have to be all in before he can take that risk and reveal himself.
From the Shakespeare quotes to the panty melting dirty talk, Killian quickly made his way into my top book boyfriends of all time. The man had sexiness in spades. This story was beyond hot with characters I utterly adored. Jules was sassy and stubborn to a fault and boy did she make Killian work for it. Killian just exuded confidence and his honesty with her easily won me over. I fell in love with book one, but this second book was even better...because KILLIAN. Definitely one of my favorite and hottest reads this year!
Can you read this as a standalone? Kind of. If you go into this blind, I have to imagine that it's going to be a somewhat confusing, much more mysterious read - but it can be done. I've read nearly every one of this author's books, so I had the pleasure of meeting Killian several books ago. He's always been this fascinating character on the sidelines, and now it's his turn to shine. This is intense romance, featuring an antihero with a dark side and a woman who is disgusted with herself by being attracted to him. That's right; this is a forbidden romance of sorts a la Romeo and Juliet, where our heroine is disheartened by her immediate attraction to a man who is by all accounts a bad guy. There's a push/pull, love/hate dynamic to this relationship and it makes for an engaging read.
I was drawn in from the very first page and that did not change until the very end. There's something inherently engrossing about the storyline that will draw you in, and just as I was getting ready to throw my Kindle against a wall, the tension would dissipate for a moment. It's got a little of everything, with an antihero who will melt your heart and heat up your Kindle at the same time. Yes, this is an intense romance with steamy scenes that match our antihero's personality. It's an entirely devourable read, and I cannot wait to see what this author writes next.
