Gave up sleep to read
This book was so compelling that I stayed up all night to read it. I loved that the McKay-Taggart team was still involved and that there were moments that I laughed out loud at the humor. The book was overall wonderful!
An edge of your seat, sexy romance
Brandon Lawless is the youngest brother in the Lawless clan. His job of late has been to help his brothers’ and sister get revenge for their parents’ deaths. He will do whatever it takes to get the information they need to bring their killers to justice. Including seducing the enemy’s personal assistant the fact that she is beautiful and innocent has made it a bit more complicated for Brandon. She is exactly the kind of girl he would love to have a normal life with to live the rest of his life with in peace. But he’s no good, he can’t live a normal life he has too much baggage.
He can’t resist her sweet innocence and he refuses to lie to her in order to get what he wants. I loved that Brandon was honest with Carly from the moment he met her. Instead of following the big elaborate scam his brother Drew came up with for Drew to date her and woo her into getting them the goods on her boss. Brandon saw something in Carly from the moment he laid eyes on her. They were such a perfect couple. They both try to resist the sexual tension between them. They soon find out it is a futile effort.
Carly Hendricks was a sweetheart I loved her. I adored how she protected her sister, I loved how she wouldn’t let Drew’s attitude and sarcasm get the best of her. She is a tough cookie dealt a bad hand by her nasty boss and life in general. The chemistry between Carly and Brandon was awesome every touch was like the first time. They both shared an innocence that was endearing. Brandon never had this kind of connection with a woman as an adult.
This series has quickly become another favorite of mine. I crazy about the sibling relationship that Drew, Riley, Brandon, and Mia share. They are bonded by the tragedy in their lives but they also love each other and want what’s best for the other to be happy. The funny banter they share especially when they all gang up on Drew was hilarious.
There are a lot of twists, turns, and revelations to be had throughout the book. Brandon opens up to Carly about his time in the system as a kid and the things that happened to him are heartbreaking.
I cannot wait for Drew and Shelby’s story she is going to give him a run for his money for sure.
Another fantastic read by Ms. Blake.
Lexi Blake is a master story teller. Her books have laugh out loud humor, danger, intrigue, love, compelling characters, and yes, hot hot sex. The stories with the Lawless brothers have all of that. I have enjoyed this series about the Lawless brothers so much it's a shame there are only three brothers and three books. Can't wait for Drew's book. Bran's book took a shocking turn at the end and will resolve one way or another with Drew.
