I'd like to start off by saying that I am a sucker for any character who is more than the skin they wear. This author gave us some depth and I am thoroughly appreciative of that. Connor was hotness personified!! Tatted? Check. Criminal history? Check. Brooding? Check. Heart of gold? Mother-effin check!! That scene where he hustles Demi at pool and they share what they want from a significant other (what they want from each other) was so hot. Proof that sex doesn't have to be involved for the scene to be sizzling. I think Demi was a great character as well. Yeah, in the first half she was in denial because she thought it was taboo to want Connor but she stepped up and had his back. Loved that. And I especially loved the way that Connor handled her. He was there for her from the start and I think it may have been because of Ethan to begin with, but his loyalty was to her.

Speaking of Ethan... My word I felt so sad for this character. The bull he went through, especially when he just survived death's door was heart rending. He and Connor had to put up with too much. I'm glad this was written in a way that you could tell that they had each other. And there's no denying that because of the lengths Connor went to to have Ethan's back. Eight years in prison ain't a joke.

In the last 20% of the book, the story took I turn I didn't expect. So much was happening. Murder. Trial. But there's a pretty sweet HEA so I can't complain. Overall, a very sweet book with some sexy tension and scenes.
