This book was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Since I read Rule, the first book in the series, nothing could have topped it. Except for the amazingness that is Nash.
Saint was such a great heroine. I love how much she loved her profession, a nurse, and I thought it was perfect for her and her personality. I totally got it. At the beginning she was incredibly insecure but with some good reasons. She hated to be vulnerable and I was so stoked when she finally got past all that. She deserved all the happiness that Nash could give her.
Nash was a purple-eyed sex god. He has not had the most stable home life ever and don’t even get me started on his mother. He is a total sweetheart underneath all of the tattoos and piercings though and he is most definitely tied with Rule as my favorite Marked Men, which is fitting since they are best friends!
I was so happy to see the rest of the crew. Cora had her adorable baby, R.J. and I loved seeing Rule and Shaw’s wedding. So great. I was definitely feeling the dual POV and Nash’s was my favorite. The writing is definitely on point and the romance was smoking!
I know who Rowdy’s girl is and I can’t wait to see him fall so hard in love!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: He reached out and caught my braid in his hand and used it to reel me in. When our mouths touched, it was so much more than a simple kiss. He tasted like the past and like the future, the then and the now. He felt so strong and solid, but his lips were soft and searching.
