All 20 year old Daisy Haites has ever wanted is a normal life, but it's just not on the cards for her. Raised by her older brother Julian since their parents were murdered in front of them 12 years ago, Daisy hasn't ever lived beyond the watchful gaze of her gang lord brother. But Julian's line of work means that Daisy's life is...complicated. And things don't become any less complex when she falls hard for Christian Hemmes, the beautiful and emotionally unavailable boy she's been involved with for the last few months, who also happens to be one of the few men in London who doesn't answer to Julian. Christian's life is no walk in the park either, being in love with his best friend's girlfriend and all... He's happy enough to use Daisy to throw off the scent of his true affections, that is until she starts to infiltrate those too.
As their romance blossoms into something neither were anticipating, Daisy, Christian, and Julian each have to come to terms with the fact that in this life everything comes at a price. As their relationships intersect and tangle, they all learn that sometimes life's most worthwhile pursuits can only be paid in blood.
Favorite books of the year…maybe ever
How many authors have you heard of that release their second novel 6 months after their first?! I only know of Jessa Hastings.
If you haven’t read Magnolia Parks yet, you need to read it first to get the groundwork. But then this story dives into another set of characters’ perspectives and it follows the same time frame of Magnolia Parks so it’s super interesting to see another side of the story. Written just as well as MP and just as easily binge able. My favorite books of the year. Maybe ever.
This series. THIS SERIES. It is SO good and fun. The characters feel like my close friends. I am in love with these books and I can’t wait for MORE!
Couldn’t put it doen
I loved this book maybe even more than Magnolia Parks and that says a lot! It was so fun to get lost in the characters and Jessie has done it once again making us all fall in love with these beautiful friends. A perfect read!
