My thoughts 💭
This was my first book by the author and I really liked it! There are 8 other books in this series and I feel like I need to read them. Or at least Fallon’s story! Brielle and Michael were crazy but I enjoyed their story! They had great chemistry and I loved how Michael always seemed to have Brielle’s safety in mind! Brielle was a clever sweetheart and I loved her! This was a nice read and I’ll be reading more from this series!
blend of lust, deceit, lies & men who love hard and at all costs.
