Rafe is a cop just trying to bring down criminals and help kids on the verge of making bad life decisions. He has been through a horrific childhood and on a daily basis those memories haunt him.
Shelby is a Hospice nurse who loves her job and just wants to live her life as peacefully as possible. Her twin brother Ezra, however definitely keeps her on her toes and since he was arrested and put in jail years ago Ezra holds a deep seated loathing for Rafe. Shelby always feels like she needs to keep an eye on Ezra because his life choices are not always the best.
Ten years ago the three of them were thick as thieves and stayed friends after graduating high school. A terrible decision was made between Rafe and Ezra to commit a crime. Rafe had a last minute emergency come up and he couldn't go with Ezra; however Ezra was going to go through with the plan and in order for him not to be killed Rafe decides the best course of action is to throw Ezra under the bus to the police. Now all that lasts between the three is a deep seated hate for each other.
Shelby accidentally runs into Rafe in her own apartment building and can't believe she has to live so close to him.
Things start to heat up when the chemistry and circumstances keep pulling them back towards each other. Both Rafe and Shelby have their own sketchy plans that involve each of them to get close to the other but it completely starts to backfire when the feelings start to turn real between them. Scenes heat up to molten levels and the fire between the two is burning bright when all hell breaks loose and Shelby realizes she needs space from both Rafe and her brother.
The book ends with a fantastic HEA and a beautiful future for the two to look forward to.
This story was extremely riveting and hard to stop once I started it.
I received an ARC of Defiant for an honest review.
Shelby is sweet, caring and a hospice nurse, Rafe is a cop with anger issues due to childhood abuse and he holds a personal grudge against Shelby's twin Ezra, a ex convict turned business owner who in turn wants revenge against Rafe. Shelby is always caught in the middle off them and tends to end up on the receiving end of their attitudes. Shelby and Rafe have a love hate relationship and the author did an amazing job highlighting and describing the emotions and feelings between Shelby and Rafe and their growing attraction to each other.
Rafe was the reason Shelby's twin brother Ezra went to jail for attempted robbery, something he and Rafe worked on together and when Rafe was called away, he called the cops on Ezra for the attempted robbery. As Shelby lived with Ezra and the plans were in their apartment she nearly ended up in jail as well. Rafe walked off scott-free and became a cop, and holding on to his personal grudge against Ezra ,instead of investigating he believes Ezra is dealing drugs and gets a search warrant to search his business and ransack his inventory. This triggers Ezra's grudge and they end up in a fight with Ezra being arrested again this time for assaulting a cop and Shelby washing her hands off both of them.
The characters have depth and growth tangled with realistic array of emotions ranging from mistrust, disgust, disappointment, hatred, sorrow, protection and love. The supporting characters and relationships between them were realistic and well done. A well written emotional story,
