Oh mmm gggeeeee! BT seriously nailed this fucking book. I was so excited to get the ARC and once I started reading I knew I was in for a ride. This was seriously one of the best books I’ve read in a while. Not just because of the sex. The story was absolutely phenomenal!

Xander is such a lost soul. I fell for him immediately! He’s a true gentleman and so caring. He’s definitely had a rough way to go in life but he still keeps fighting. Moving forward. I admired that the most about him. The school of hard knocks is where he came from and he’s doing his best not to ever go back there. With all that being said…. he’s freakin hot as hell! And not afraid of hard work! Who doesn’t love a man’s man?! I sure as fuck do.

Paige is a sweetheart. Though she’s sassy as hell and I loved that lots. Her banter with Xander and her friends kept me giggling on and off through the while book. She may have started out life not being too complicated but finds herself with the wrong damn people and scared there’s no way out. Only Xander has other plans for her and you’ll definitely wanna get in on those.

Family is her everything! Which is why this book tore my fucking heart out. I wanted everything to be wrapped in a pretty bow and perfect. But in all honesty it wasn’t. At all! Which made me love the book even more. There was angst tension tears and definitely some anger. It was a book that pulls your heart strings and makes you literally want to hug the characters. Great read! WAY TO GO BT!!!!! Please keep writing because I definitely want to keep reading your words. They’re awesome.

“How about twenty questions?” I ask.
“I hate twenty questions.”
“How about five questions, then?”
He cracks a smile and lifts an eyebrow. “How about three?”
“So, have I mentioned how much I fucking hate Tuesdays?” Brandi’s voice cuts right between us. Xander looks relieved.
Me? Not so much. “Damn it, Brandi!”
“Oh nothing. Can you grab me Fireball though? Pretty please. Two of them.” I look at Xander. “You’re taking one.”
“Three. I am too, bitch! Fuck Tuesdays!” Brandi calls out from across the bar as she begins filling the shot glasses from the Fireball chiller.
“Question one. You said you’ve been traveling for a while now, right? Do you ever get tired of it? Ever feel like settling?”
“Damn. Starting out with the heavy hitters, huh?” He eyes the shot glasses as if hoping it will somehow make them fill faster.
“Need me to go easier on you? Maybe a finger or two first before I go in with the whole fist?”
He looks at me in disbelief. “Did you really just say that?”
“Just answer the question, two fingers or three?”
