This story does contain triggers. Sexual abuse/rape of a minor. The emotions associated with these scenes as experienced by the protagonist are overwhelming and heartbreaking. Some scenes are more graphic than others. S. Kline does a great job capturing the fear and the moments when Raven collapsed into herself and disassociated with the rape to save herself mentally. The signs of PTSD are poignant and make Raven’s everyday life a constant battle between terror and memory, hope and romance.
Dylan is a major playboy. He’s gruff, uber masculine, hyper sexual and uses the f-word more than I thought possible. He’s a playful, cocky tease one moment and a predator seeking out his prey in the form of gorgeous, skanky women. Dylan’s lines are full of innuendo and graphic dirty talk that will make even the most lascivious blush. He knows what he wants and states it in a provocative, honest manner. Despite Dylan’s hit it and quit in mentally of one night stands, lots of alcohol and quite a few joints, he’s a big, gushy sweetheart. He’s got a past that haunts him but never breaks him, a boyish charm that wins over all the ladies (well, that and his delicious body), a mother son bond that is so pure it will make your heart melt and the way his is with Raven and Harper-a gigantic guard dog. Dylan is forgiving, takes no BS, he listens and understands with very little questioning. He accepts and loves with an open heart and mind. Dylan is so many things, BA, violent, stoner, player but he’s also super loyal, loving, compassionate, and sacrifices his needs for those he loves and respects.
Raven is a beautifully broken soul. She’s scarred and scared. A victim of a horrific past that continuously haunts her, Raven is trying to overcome the memories of her trauma, one that disgusts and debilitates her when it comes to other men. The fiery, confident girl Raven buried to survive is not gone but lying just beneath the surface and when she rises from the ashes of her past, she’s fierce, strong, and a genuinely good person.
Raven has lived with horror so sickening and the repercussions of a twisted molester that left her damaged mentally towards men. Raven doesn’t know how to trust men and even when she’s attracted to Dylan she fights it. She feels as though she is baggage that no man will ever want to take on, that she’s soiled and it’s gut-wrenching to read. Raven is gorgeous inside and out, throughout the story your heart will ache for what she has lost and what she thinks she doesn’t deserve. Raven is a shoulder to cry on, the rock that holds people up when they feel like they’re falling apart, and like Dylan, she can’t hold in the truth, she wears her heart on her sleeve.
Steven in the most repulsive human being. His words are almost worse than his actions. The threats he makes, the possessive way her marks, hurts, and claims Raven is disgusting and absolutely despicable. It kills me how complacent people can be, how they can turn a blind eye to something so obvious or just not care. There were a lot of things to hope for in this story but my greatest was that Steven got what was coming to him. S. Kline got his smarmy, vindictive, sadistic personality down pat and OMG you’ll want to tear him apart.
Dylan and Raven are PERFECT for each other. A balance of heady lust and curiosity, their attraction builds into something much more potent. They’re scorching hot together. The chemistry is off the charts. Some scenes are avert your eyes, blush-worthy bliss. Graphic, passionate, and all out sexy. That dirty talk. You will have chills.
The secondary characters have strong personalities. Most are memorable, wonderful people who have always got Dylan and Raven’s back.
Dylan’s infatuation with Raven escalated at an unbelievable pace that sometimes felt rushed but never dishonest. The romance builds in an explosion of raw lust and genuine emotion that reads as beautifully sappy and oh so sexy. The L-word hit hard and fast, so quick that it was startling and had me questioning whether it was indeed love or that Dylan was simply captivated by the first woman who rejected him.
For someone who doesn’t often read mob stories, references to the group and scenes that happened in a previous book (I was unaware this was a series and I’m gathering this is book 2) were confusing and tripped me up. I found myself going back to skim and see if I missed something.
Violent scenes including the Irish brothers were cut off and shortened. There are leaps from one scene to the next that were lacking transition.
An unexpected escape left me puzzled. How? There were no answers and because there was no explanation, it seemed as though it was randomly inserted for extra drama.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
