A life free from sin.
For seventeen years, I have lived and breathed those words. But there is no balm to the war inside my soul.
The mysterious beauty too lethal to taste. She’s a thief, a con, the essence of everything I loathe. Still, she lures me in with her lying eyes.
In the dark of night, she came to confess her sins, and in the light of morning, I plotted to steal her away.
She will be my ruination. My damnation. My biggest regret.
So help me, God.
A word of advice? Don’t show me your vulnerabilities because I will find a way to exploit them. I learned the hard way to take what I want from life with no regrets.
He’s one of the most hated men in America. A soulless criminal attorney. A recluse. And as of five minutes ago, my new husband.
He wants to keep my secrets and collect my tears, but he should know that a wild animal can’t be domesticated.
I don’t know how to love men. I only know how to leave them.
With everything I want.
Wow! What can I say other than what an amazing read!This is a new author for us and what can I say other than she wowed be from the very first pages.I cannot put into words how much I loved this book.
This is a review that is really hard to write in the fact that you want to put to words all the things you loved about the story but, its really hard to do without giving away the story.
I loved each and everyone of these characters.
I alway pick a favorite character but, it is really hard this time around to chose between Lucian and Gypsy they were equally just as lovable.
Gypsy for me was a hoot as she had me laughing from page one when she showed up to the court house looking like a princess in a white dress and wearing cowboy boots. LOL There is so many things I loved about Gypsy and one of them is how strong a women she was to over come all the horrible things she experience in her life up until this point.I loved the fact that she was broken on the inside but, would never know it as she seemed to live a life to the fullest by just watching her.I love how protective she was of her sister and the lengths she was willing to go to protect her.
I found her to be funny,determined,beautiful,feisty,smart,generous,a bit of a hell cat.What I loved most though is that most people living a past like hers would have broken most people mentally but, she never let it cripple her to the point that she stop living life it just made her stronger.
Gypsy and Lucian together gave us so many laugh out loud moments throughout the book.I loved this couple together as they were perfect for each other in every way two broken souls healing one another just by being together each healing a lit bit at a time . Each character grew emotionally as the story progressed and learned that love of a soul mate sooths a tortured soul. Their was so many layers to Gypsy and once you started to peel back those layers I loved getting to know the real Gypsy and that made me just love her even more.
Lucian OMG! I total Alpha that had me in love with him from the very beginning."Holy Hotess" " Holy Fanning myself"Talk about layers Lucian had them ten fold!After first meeting Lucian I never saw a broken man but, a determined one that took life seriously.This is a story with that catch phrase "Never judge a book by its cover" totally rings true when relating to this story.If I wasn't already in love with him already once I learned his real motive and his true intentions about Gypsy I was more in awe of the man and even more in love with him as the story progressed.
Bottom line I loved the story from beginning to end and it had me totally engrossed in it from the very first chapter.I will also say this in the fact that this story tugged at my heart strings and emotional involved me to see this journey through with such amazing characters.
One of the things that I love is when I connect with the character I read about and these characters made it easy to do so.You couldn't help but love them from the onset .Ace also became a special character that touched our heart.
This story was totally full of hot and sizzle as well of some really hot erotica thrown into the mix.This story had so much going for it that made you laugh,cry,tug at your emotions and so many twists turns and unexpected events happen as well as some whopping surprises that you will not want to put the story down until the very end.
I am going to say that this story moved up to my list I have for one of my favorite reads for 2018 as well as adding her to my new favorite author lists.
I recommended read to all and a story not to be missed.! Looking for the next story in the series "We can't wait!"
I walked into my office and found the tall, leggy brunette waiting for me. She wasn’t the only one either. Beside her, Ace played around on his phone while Birdie flipped through a magazine. I wasn’t surprised to see her this soon. In all honesty, I’d expected her to show up at my door last night, demanding to have Ace removed from her presence. But it appeared as though they survived the night, just barely. “May I have a word with you?” Gypsy asked. “You may,” I told her as I checked my watch. “In thirty minutes. When my lunch is finished.” Her eyes narrowed, and she planted her hands on her hips as she stood. “You must be joking.” “I don’t joke,” I responded flatly. She stalked forward, stopping only when she’d breached the narrow distance that few people ever dared to try with me. She was reverting to her baser skills of seduction, but I doubted she even realized it. The instinct came naturally to her, often rewarding her with whatever she wanted, and admittedly, it might have worked on me too once. She smelled of coconut oil and sunshine, and it encouraged a vivid image of her lying out on the beach. I could almost bet that if I were to touch her skin, it would be warm too. So warm that it would be easy to get lost in. She probably counted on it, but I was prepared to let Gypsy know from the start how this game would be played. There were only one set of rules, and they were mine. “Do you want me to throw a fit?” she threatened as her eyes darted around my office. “Because I will.” Now that was funny. My lips tilted despite my resolve to remain dry as toast. “Do you think it would be the first time someone threw a fit in here?” I asked her. “I’m sorry to tell you sweetheart, but it wouldn’t.” “It would probably be the first time someone accused you of holding them hostage in front of your employees.” I turned and gestured for her to go ahead. “Be my guest.” Her lips tightened, and she clamped down on her jaw. After watching her for so long, these unintelligent threats from her were a disappointment. Of course, she wouldn’t make a scene because she had more to lose than I did. “Thirty minutes,” I repeated. “I’ll have my secretary call for you when I’m finished.” I walked into my office and shut the door behind me.
