it was amazing
bookshelves: contemporary, dual-pov

I really enjoyed the glimpses I got of Brando when I read Insatiable, but that had nothing on how I got to know him here. Thus character struck me as the definition of a player (like Jax) and that hasn't really changed. But it's the back story that led him on this path that makes the difference. Knowing that he had the capacity to love and was burned by it added so much depth to his character. Almost everyone can empathize with a broken heart and the reActions one might take to get past it.

The slow burn of attraction between Brando and Haley made them that much more interesting and I couldn't help but root for them. It sucks that there were people (Lexi and Davis) who were like sharks circling in the water, waiting for the first scent of blood, but if they didn't exist, I guess the book would be missing the requisite angst. And those two created drama like it was their day job lol. So now that Brando is falling for Haley, and vice versa, things get all messed up.

I'm looking forward to book 2 to see how Brando redeems himself to Haley, knowing that the exquisite writing style of JD Hawkins won't disappoint!
