This book was a book that showed more than I thought it would. I liked the mystery and action in it. It was definitely more than just a romance. This book had a little of everything in it. You really get a sense of an author when you can read a book and keep wanting more after the book is done. This book does that. I liked Taylor in this book. He's a fighter, he brings a lot of action and life to this book. He has a past, and with that I think some thin.gs were brought into the story line that really didn't need to be in it, but I overlook that and his story is a good one. Taylor is this bad boy, but no really. He has had a bit of a rough life , but he is making the best of what he's got. So when he gets in trouble and his best friend can't bail him out he sends his attorney partner, Harley. Harley, it took me a while to warm up to her. She was really prissy at the beginning and not very likable. At times she thought she was better than everyone and it was frustrating at times. So when she meets Taylor she comes off like he is beneath her. But as the story goes on you learn more about her and some things start to make sense. So after the rocky start the chemistry starts to build. When Harley's big case takes a turn for the worse and her life becomes endangered, things begin changing for r both of them. Trying to keep everyone safe is a lot harder when you start putting away the mob. There is some unexpected turns, but in all you see a relationship falter, then grow, then falter again. What makes this book interesting is how everything start to lead up and how its friends that help more than anything . Who you trust becomes harder and harder to realize. You are not sure if if everything will work out at the end. Will this case be solved and will Taylor and Harley be able to make it through?
At times I really enjoyed this book, but at some points i was frustrated with it. This author has a way with words and I think will only get better every time I read her. I was a little disappointed that the epilogue was only partly about Taylor and Harley and we didn't see more of what the future will hold. I still enjoyed the book and hope to read some more books from this author.
There was definitely more to the story than I thought I was going to get and I enjoyed that, I liked that while the author was able to inject the angst and attitude, she also gave the book room to flex its own muscle so to speak. I thought the characters were rich, they were detailed and I was able to create a clear picture in my mind of who they were and what they looked like.
Taylor brought the spirit of the book to life, he was a fighter in every sense of the word and because of him I think I found myself more comfortable with the book than I might have been with anyone else, not everything was to my taste but that is the whole point of a story, it will engage you in its own way and we are all different so what works for me, might push other people too far.
Taylor hadn’t had it easy, so I think he tugged at my heartstrings and for that I was prepared to let things slide, he kept me busy and I really liked that. He brought plenty of action to the story and I could easily understand why, his public and private persona didn’t exactly the gel. He might have been the hard man or give the impression he was but things aren’t always what they seem.
Harley is sent to help him when he finds himself on the wrong side of the law, it seems as if keeping out of trouble doesn’t come easy for Taylor but when Harley rocks up to help him out of his predicament I was keeping my fingers crossed that things might just be about to improve for him.
Now, I won’t say that I liked Harley straight of the bat, she took more than a little bit of getting used to but there was something, a feeling that came a cross that she was used to keeping the real her hidden too. Luckily her secrets are slowly revealed and it is not difficult to see where her troubles stem from, taking on a huge legal case that has the prospect of putting away members of the mob is not exactly going to lower your profile but what she wasn’t ready for was the danger that suddenly becomes all too apparent.
The insta love isn’t my thing but this pair sort of danced around a little before things finally started to fall into place for them. But it wasn’t all plain sailing, what they had and the pressures that were put upon them both individually and as a pair was sometimes more than I thought they could possible shoulder but it was good to see that when push came to shove it was the strength of those around them, of their friends that kept them strong.
But will they make it? Now, come on you really don’t expect me to tell you? Do You????
I have one small complaint; I was looking for more in the epilogue. But again this is a personal preference.
I think the author did a good job, I liked the characters especially Taylor and I liked the pace of the story, it was descriptive without being distracting and it held its edge of anticipation well. Good Job!
