Love had cut me in so many ways I wondered if my heart could take any more. But then I saw him. He was my boss. A single father. And to top it off he was insolent. I didn't intend to want him, that wasn't my objective. But somehow I couldn't say no. We shouldn't have worked, but like witchcraft, I was under his spell. My heart had been destroyed before, I wasn't sure it could handle heartbreak again.
A fantastic end to this series
“I see you, Darby.
I see you.”
The last of the enigmatic men of the Crimson Elite and he was worth the wait. He’s the anchor, the fixer and the glue so when he makes a mistake it’s leaves them all shocked. Lured into a pregnancy not everything is as it seems and Darby’s world is forever changed. Coming to terms with his own childhood, his repressed feelings and recognising the triggers for his behaviours Darby wakes up to himself in the course of his story.
Blue is the colour that haunts his dreams as she’s the only person, outside of the Crimson Elite and family, that has dared to tell him no. Challenging him, pushing him and testing the boundaries she entices a visceral response in him that he can’t ignore but often wishes he could. Running from her past and the pain she has buried she finds herself bar tending for the most elusive club to help her friend. Much to the disgust of her brother and father, as she’s a woman of means and doesn’t need the gig and yet she can’t walk away. Can two slightly dark souls find a harmony within each other?
This is one scorching read, they both rub each other up in all the deliciously wrong but right ways causing much amusement to the others. Ruffling Darby is hard to do and yet she manages it without much effort. His life has suddenly become so chaotic and yet he finds her in the eye of the storm and becomes drawn in despite his best intentions. She has a painful past and he has a complicated now but can they figure it out? I honestly felt every emotion as the whys and hows were revealed, their story truly pulled on the heart strings - the letter, his epiphany, the reasons why she’s afraid of the dark all gut wrenching moments in this story so grab your tissues. The heat between them is high, causing my kindle to smoulder! This was a fantastic addition to this series that has been addictive.
A five star I see you read.
