Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life.
That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
Steamy and Suspenseful!
Book Rating: 4.5 Stars
A fun entertaining story with great characters! Mia almost runs Mason down with her car, such a delightfully dangerous meet-cute. The chemistry between them is almost palpable! I liked getting to know the characters and watching Mason grow as a person after getting out on parole. He still struggles with his old survival habits he learned in prison and his and Mia's relationship has its struggles because of it. Mia is also fun because she runs her own business and has a very nosy brother in her life. The dynamic with the brother was done well with him being a parole officer and demonstrating a protectiveness over his sister. I look forward to reading the brother's story because I kind of want Mia and Mason to give him a little run for his money in a little revenge.
There's lots of steam, some swearing, and a bit of violence (not gory at all) and talk of drugs, drug use and drug distribution.
I found this book entertaining throughout the pages. Both the characters and the storyline are well developed and engaging.
I received a copy and am voluntary leaving my honest review.
This is my first read from this author and I enjoyed it. I loved that Mia never gave up on Mason. It’s always great to have some one in your corner when you’re trying to do better. There were some slow parts but all in all a good solid read.
