If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it. So stop reading this review and buy it right now. Really, I am not kidding. Seriously, folks, I enjoyed reading this story. I had my doubts at first because my first impression of Noni made me want to stop reading. I seriously thought she had sh*t for brains and was a spineless people-pleasing pushover. Noni and Deacon had a night to remember in Vegas. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…well, not so. Between trying to please her controlling piece of sh*t fiance and her bitter unpleasant mother, Noni wasn’t her true self, that is, until Deacon Clarke. Like that night in Vegas, this butterfly will spread her wings a**hole style. However, just as Deacon is like the idea of having a family. His past is trying to pull him back in.
James Griffin, the man he calls his adoptive father, is in trouble. Deacon doesn’t want to risk his freedom now, but how can he not help the man there for him when he was homeless. However, Deacon will soon learn the situation is not what it seems, and it may cost him more than he is willing to pay. There is some suspense, as we still do not know who the puppetmaster is working behind the scene, causing trouble for the crew.
I definitely plan to continue with this series; if you enjoy stories about a group of people who become lifelong friends, this a series to read. Kudos to Tiya Rayne for great storytelling.
