So I have been waiting not so patiently for Cannon's story for what feels like forever! If you already loved Cannon before you will love him even more after reading his and Persephone's story. I mean who doesn't like a quiet, broody, bookworm! I laughed, there were tears! The ending was just perfect! So much love for these two. I feel I say this every time I read one of Samantha's books but hands down Cannon has been my favourite. I'm excited to see what happens next in the Repears world.

It's no secret that Samantha Whiskey is an amazing author, but she absolutely blew me away with this release. I've been looking forward to Cannon's book ever since he was introduced, and I have to say.. This is my all time favorite in the series!!

Cannon is convinced that because of his childhood, he is unworthy of anyone's love, and doesn't believe that anyone could ever love all of him -- including the darkest parts of himself that he tries to hide. The only people he lets in are his sister and

This is a modern day Beauty and the Beast Hockey story, with a twist. She's a southern belle from a long line of old money and he worked his way up from the depths of despair. But no matter how beastly he tries to be, she sees right thru his exterior cover. This was my first Samantha Whiskey book and I actually stalked her to help promote this book. The storyline intrigued me so much, and it did NOT disappoint. Great characters and such a fun and emotional story. It was really hard to put this ...more

I love this!!! It was sweet, simple yet touching. It's been a long time since I fell in love with the characters too. I adore Sefie and of course I love Cannon. Almost cried because of their wedding vow LOL.

Oh boy, how I love Cannon and Persephone together. It was one of the few things I liked about Logan's book. I love the trope, the MCs waking up being married but don't remember + a tattoed hockey player = you got me.

For some reason, I thought I wouldn't like Persephone in her book but I did love. Gosh, she is the kind of heroine I'm always looking for (strong, can stand for herself, gentle without being stepped on, sweet and loving without

Cannon and Persephone lived up to their low-key hype demonstrated through out most of this series. Their fire for ramping the other one up verbally has always been fascinating and I should have known once they were thrown together that the rest of their chemistry would be supersonic. I enjoyed witnessing them each learn how the other has walked battlefields of their own in life. Opposites attract is always such an entertaining trope and Samantha Whiskey nailed it.

When I write reviews for the books in this series, I tend to ramble. This time Im going to get straight to the point. I absolutely loved this book! It had everything Ive come to expect from this authors work and the way she led up to Cannons story was insane. We caught a glimpse of him in the first Carolina Reapers novel, Axel, and after that she kept building up his and Persephones story more and more with each book that came after. Im happy to say that Cannon and Persephones story was ...more

Gah... Cannon is just...gah! There really is no other way to describe him. Ive been waiting for his and Persephones story forever!! And then when Samantha dropped tbr marriage bomb at the end of Logan I was straight up twitchy for the book.

From the very first chapter Cannon had me all sorts of swooning and it didnt stop. He and Persephone are just perfection!!!

I loved them and this book and if I could give it more than 5 stars I would!!!!

Absolutely Amazing cant get enough!!!

Cant get enough loved Cannon this book was one I had been waiting for. Absolutely have loved everything this author does. Loved how Cannon never thought he was good enough or how these two wouldnt attempt there attraction for each other until thrown together.

Cannon Price and Persephone Vandoren have been circling each other for the last few books! I have been waiting (not so patiently) to see how their story plays out, and wow! It did not disappoint! Cannon is a tattooed (and I mean head to toe, no virgin skin left), broody, stubborn athlete and in comes Persephone who is all class, pristine...and a badass who rocks his world upside down! Be ready for a frenemies to lovers, fake wife/husband accidental marriage of convenience full of over the top ...more

I want to squeal like a schoolgirl, I have been waiting for Cannons story since he was introduced to the series and I was NOT disappointed. Cannon is tattooed all the way from neck to ankles, big and broody hockey player, and his favorite place to be is the library or anywhere with a book in his hand (are you drooling, Im drooling). I am a sucker for a broody broken hero; add in tattoos and his love for books I was done for. Cannon was traded to the Carolina Reapers do to his fighting on the ice ...more

Cannon is book 3 of the Carolina Reapers series by Samantha Whiskey about a professional hockey team near Charleston SC. All of her leading men deserve the title of hero because they are stand-up characters who love fiercely, are honest and loyal, and a bit broken.

I just loved Cannon whom we met in earlier books and was very intrigued by his story. A victim and survivor of a traumatic childhood filled with abuse, this kind-hearted man was very apprehensive of love. From the moment he first met

Feb 22, 2020 rated it it was amazing
There are several reasons why this is my favorite Carolina Reapers novel to date. One, Cannon intrigue has been building since the beginning--all that tattooed broodiness. Two, the hidden (somewhat) intellect of Cannon and him letting it out, so to speak, in this novel. And three, the busting of stereotypes held by people in the story. Assuming someone isn't intelligent because of their profession or that same assumption because someone is born in better circumstances: some things we have ...more

The Reapers bad boy and the sweet princess ❤

Oh Cannon! He is exactly the hero my little book lovin heart lives for. A loyal, strong-willed, alpha that is fiercely protective of the people he loves. It breaks my heart that he sees himself as a bad boy and not worthy of a woman like Persephone. (Im the guy you f*ck on a spring break weekend so you can brag about it to your sorority sisters, and the only reason a woman would ever introduce me to her daddy is to piss him off so she can work out her

Persephone Van Doren, the head of Reapers charity foundation, is the definition of everything Cannon Price despises. He thinks shes entitled and has everything handed to her. That doesnt stop his attraction to her though. In reality Persephone was born into wealth but has worked for everything that she has. Persephone sees behind Cannons tattoos and rough exterior, but can she convince him that there is more to her? With one fateful trip to Vegas, clearly what happens in Vegas doesnt stay in ...more

The moment they met there was an instant connection, one that kept drawing them back into each other's lives, and one that lead to a marriage... that neither of them can remember.

Persephone and Cannon are about opposite as two souls could be, she comes from a life of wealth and privilege and he the complete opposite. But the connection they have found in one another bonds them, but is it enough to hold them together forever?

Cannon is a perfectly penned opposites attract tale that will have you

This book was really sweet and good. First of all, this is part of the Carolina Reapers Series which features: Sawyer, Connell and Logan. I was super excited to read this book because I loved the rest of the series and the Seattle Sharks series which this is a spin off of. I think Samantha Whiskey does a great job at creating a real romance between the main characters and this book is no exception to that general rule. I loved the plot it

This is one of my favourite series and Cannon's book was another fantastic addition that, like always, left me wanting more. Seeing Cannon and Persephone's relationship developing had my heart aching and I really wasn't sure they'd get their HEA at one point. As with any book by Samantha Whiskey, I was unable to stop reading once I'd picked it up and found myself reading late into the night until I'd finished it. I've never felt so hopeful that a couple would admit their feelings for each other ...more

I have been waiting since Cannon was introduced to see his story. I have a HUGE thing for brooding men in books and Cannon has brought up my top five of Book Boyfriends.

This amazing enemies/coworkers - lovers romance is just the right amount of heart ache, love, devotion and sassy come backs. There is a fine line between heaven and hell and these two find it and are trying to find that happy way to live there.

This is probably my most awaited book. I even put it in my planner and it does NOT disappoint. I was waiting for Cannon and Persephone's book since they were introduced in "Sawyer" and all the wait was worth it. I absolutely love their chemistry and dynamics!

What I admire about Samantha is that she writes strong heroines and Persephone is probably one of my favorite heroines of all time. She is gentle yet resilient and gracious yet dauntless. And Cannon - well, to be honest, there are only few
