Cole Jagger has arrived and what an epic entrance he made! Yes, he’s been here all along but now the broody, mysterious and super sexy Jagger twin is front and center. I really thought none of the brothers could hold a candle to Ace but damn…I just don’t know…I am so torn. I will just say I love them both. This book was a lot more on the dark side of things than the first two books. It fit perfectly with all things Cole Jagger. Dark and dangerous. While I loved the first book in the series, I unfortunately wasn’t a huge fan of the second book. This one more than made up for it. I loved absolutely everything about Cole and Hadley’s story!
“I just need darkness…nothingness. It’s the only place where I can find solace.”
I thought Ace was dark and tortured, but Cole takes it to a whole new level. He is so intense. This sexy, mysterious bad boy has secrets from his past that he wants to stay buried deep. After some crazy twists and turns he finds himself making a deal with the devil to save the only people in this world he gives two shits about. His circle of people he allows in his life is small and air-tight, but Hadley is slowly making her way in. Although he fights like hell to keep her out.
“A truth I can’t taint her with. She’s too innocent. Too pure.”
Hadley finds herself unable to keep her distance from Cole. She knows the Jagger bad boy doesn’t do relationships, but she feels a constant pull to him. He has his secrets but so does she. She isn’t who everyone thinks she is. Maybe she’s just as broken as he is. One she finds him covered in blood that’s not his own things get super crazy between these two.
“He hides a darkness inside him, a darkness I live with every second of every day.”
Let’s talk about the explosive chemistry between these two…wow. It was so damn hot. Both battling their demons while simultaneously battling whatever is going on between them. She pushed hard. He pulled away just as hard. I loved it. Secrets, lies and hot sex. Everything about this book was so intense. Can they both keep the secrets they are so desperately trying to hide? Can two broken people find a way to heal? How in the hell is it possible for the Jagger brothers to be just so damn hot? So many questions, some answers and a killer cliffhanger that I had a feeling was coming but still was not prepared. I absolutely loved this book and can not wait for the next one!
“I’ll ruin you, Hadley. Whatever good is left in you, I’ll ruin it all.”
