After hundreds of one night stands...after endless searching and hoping "the one" is right around the corner - - Melanie Meyers Dean is feeling worthless and used. She's 24 and feeling lonely, alone and empty now that Brooke, her BFF has gotten married to her "one". And though Melanie is so happy for Brooke, she's also sad....and feeling even more alone. Because more than anything, Melanie wants what Brooke has found. She wants that perfect "one" that will look at her as if she's perfect too...as if she's enough. His everything.
Greyson Slater King; aka: "Zero" is a collector of gambling debts. He's a criminal. He has zero identity...zero traces. He's completely untraceable...nothing but a number. Zero doesn't "do" relationships and he's never met anyone who would make him wanna change - - until Melanie. And now...no matter how hard he's fought against the feelings...he feels pulled, twisted, knotted up and used just by looking at her. She becomes his achilles heel. And now he's ravenous......for her. Nothing else matters, only her.
What a fabulous story and this Author has such an incredible talent of delivering precise and explicit narrative (and character) details, second only to Diana Gabaldon (OUTLANDER SAGA). Description of emotions and feelings are spot on direct and completely, deliriously consuming...propelling the reader...enthralling and engulfing us ..and placing us within the story lines with absolute precision. In little time, you're quite invested emotionally with Melanie and Greyson.
I loved reading each main characters POV...their perspective of thoughts, but especially Greysons' thoughts as he's a new character never before known (in this series). It was interesting to get to know a little bit of his mind and life. When an Author gives us each characters' POV, it add's emotional dimension and connection beyond the norm...(at least it does for me). All you can do is buckle up tight and hang on - - and be thankful you found an author that can bring characters to life in such a fantastical, REAL way. You'll feel the need and the want and the love of these two characters. You'll feel them devour each other. I only wish Melanie and Greyson had their own series as this story just wasn't long enough.
This story is, in a word...outstanding!
Main characters are complex, grab and keep your heart involved. Melanie Meyers AKA Mel is passionate, touchy feely, loyal, cares more of others than herself, and in over her head and too proud. Greyson King AKA Zero/Z is an alpha male, lethal, strong, Intelligent, driven, and has a hidden agenda.
The secondary characters are also complex, grabbing and holding your interest in how their actions are going to affect the main characters. Will their actions make them stronger as a couple or pull them apart? Loyal friends, loyal colleagues, and those who give a new style/level of betrayal.
I am giving this book a 4.9 star rating. I wanted an epilogue giving a short glimpse into the couples future.
Rogue is the book in which we finally get Melanie's story. The loyal best friend of Brooke and someone who I've always enjoyed reading about as a secondary character. This book picks up right before Brooke and Remy's wedding and carries on past it. If you've read Remy, you are probably wondering about who this Greyson is that Melanie is dating, and let me tell you.. he's a mystery and amazing all at once.
Melanie has always been the dreamer, she wants the HEA that her best friend got, but she's landed herself into some trouble. A bet made that she needs to pay off before something awful happens. Everything in her life seems to be going horrible until a mystery man enters and saves her and her car from the rain. One passionate night and Melanie is feeling something she's never felt before for Greyson (her mystery man). What happens next for her and Greyson is one amazing ride.
Greyson knows he shouldn't get close to her, he's supposed to collect a debt, but there is something about Melanie ("Princess") that he just can't ignore. A deal with the devil (aka his father) brings him back into the life he doesn't want to be in, and part of the deal is to collect 48 debts needing to be paid to The Underground. These debts put him and Melanie on the same path, but he doesn't realize how far he's gone off the path to be with her until it's too late.
The chemistry between these two is off the charts, as well as the angst. I wanted to yell at Melanie for not taking her own advice that she's provided Brooke with multiple times before, and for not opening up to Greyson about why she was selling her car. Greyson, by many, could be seen as the bad guy, and he is, but at the same time, he's the perfect guy. He works on trying to figure out how to save Melanie as well as his mother. He may not do great things, but you can tell it torments him, and he hates it. He just wants out of the business he was drug back into, and wants to have the person who was taken away from him all those years ago. My heart really went out for Greyson's character. He may have a dark side, but his good side outshines it over and over again in this book.
This book is full of suspense, hotness, and pure romance. I loved reading Melanie's story and wishing and hoping she would get the HEA she's been wanting for so long. Getting to know her backstory as well as Greyson's really allowed me to get to know them even more, and understand the things they do. I fell in love with their story (even with all the angst) but at times, I felt that the chapters would focus a little too much on the sex, and not the story behind these two. I really did enjoy this book and loved how it ended. I am definitely going to be diving into Pan's book next and hope she gets the HEA she deserves!
*NOTE: This book is book 4 in the Real series, but can be read as a stand-alone.
