About the Author
Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake.
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Um…our hero Ty has no clue how to use a verb or a noun. He grunts and barely puts two syllables together. How am I supposed to read a book with him in it.
~~~ Just a little while later…. ~~~~
Oh look he knows more than two words and I thought that would be better but OMG it is worse. He pretty much refers to stuff in terms of p*ssy and d*ck and I’m growing concerned that I am not going to like Ty if this keeps up.
~~~~ But then a smidgen later… ~~~~
Ty becomes interesting and the plot of the story heats up. See Alexa Berry was roped into picking him up from jail but she didn’t know the rest of what was promised to Ty Walker….and it is going to be a big surprise.
***“Alexa Anne Berry. Dallas resident. Buyer at Lowenstein’s department store. I need everything you can get on her.”
“Walker, I’m a bounty hunter, not a PI,” Jackson reminded him.
“You got resources. You got connections. I’m askin’ you to use them.”
Pause then, “Who is this woman?”
“I’m marryin’ her tomorrow. ****
Well tickle me pink and call me a peony I know right at this moment in the story I’m going to love it. Instant marriage of convenience to something more is one of my favorite tropes when done right.
Don’t worry Ty gets a vocabulary and while I think he is the most crass of all the KA alphas to date he has moments of utter tenderness too. It became clear after he learned who Alexa’s last and only boyfriend ended up dead and the life he led while alive that Ty was a diamond in the rough.
***“So, you know when the limit’s up on love?” he asked, and I felt my chest depress as the profound weight of his question hit me.
“No,” I whispered.
“Right. No. No one does. Not you. Not me. No one. You loved him, you believed in him. Far’s you were concerned, he didn’t take those hits, the day after, he coulda got his head outta his ass and done right by you. You held onto that belief. Nothin’ wrong with that except the fact that he never manned up, and that’s on him not on you.” ****
So yay we get a dirty talking hero and one of my favorite heroines because she doesn’t spend much time pitying anything in her life and for the most part she is bubbly in full of happiness and sunshine….I totally understand that girl. Beside that Lexie is a little bit goofy and I totally get that. I loved her outgoing, sassy talking, don’t take crap from no one attitude and how she lives her life large.
I loved their love story but I also enjoyed the side story of Ty finding out a way to get justice for the five years he spent in prison for a crime he didn’t commit and coming to terms with what it means to live free and how to let some stuff from his past go. He wasn’t always good at it and he totally screwed up a few times but overall Ty might be my new favorite alpha….well at least in the Colorado Mountain series that it.
Still not a full 5 because even though this has some of the best angst in any Kristen Ashley novel, I always kind of lose interest in the story around 70%. Not in a bad way, but I found myself itching to skip ahead and reread Breathe (one of the best KA books EVER). So I enjoyed the glorious angst of this one, and I am moving on. I can totally see why this book is a favorite for many KA fans.
I loved the plot because it happens everyday. Men are sent to prison not because of what they did, but for what they are not. What that cost the soul when you are forced to pay for a crime you didn't commit. I think that the excerpt fully summarizes the plot, therefore I want to state what I enjoyed. I loved the fact that from the beginning you knew who Ty and Lexie were individually. Lexie was a woman who hadn't had an easy life, who was a child of the system and a victim of society losing the war on drugs. She had a dead fiancé who didn't value what she brought to his life over his choices, but though she lost him she had his family. Ty had parents and a brother who added nothing to his life, but he had his friends. Many of whom we had met in Sweet Dreams
Ty had vengeance on his mind, he had 5 years to play the downfall of his enemies. That was his #1 focus...until Lexie came along. Ty was an empty pit, that should have been bottomless, but one that from the moment he met Lexie that was being filled up. She had his back, his heart and she was loyal. Now, Ty doesn't always know how to handle those qualities, but even when he made my girl cry, I was pulling for him. I love that he provided for her , I love that he protected her, cherished, and loved her.
Lexie gives Ty her heart and support and Ty gives Lexie a purpose and love. Their lovestory is told with a backdrop of dirty cops, a murder, a pimp, a cop who is in love with Lexie, Ty's jacked up parents and quirky, but loyal friends. Basically, like ALL Ashley stories, it's told while life happens and is navigated. This is going to be my second Kristen Ashley review in about a month, and I know that is looked upon suspiciously, but I was not asked by the author to review her book and neither was a copy of the book provided to me for free. I, like every book I've reviewed, purchased this book on my own and felt strongly enough about it to review it.
