Okay so the quick of it is that Annie is on the run and lands in a trailer park. Her first night there a phone rings in her trailer and she answers it. Kicking off a wild ride full of passion, hope, and a bit of dirty adventure with a mysterious man who knows just what she needs.
Alright so these two. I really enjoyed them. In a way they're both a tease. You get just enough of Annie and Dylan to like them and know who they are right now in the present but without knowing everything about their pasts. It pulls you along in a tantalizing way giving you bits and pieces as things go and keeping you curious. And curious...I was! I liked what I saw along the way. A woman who has been beat down and is taking her life back. Annie is sweet, innocent and trying her damnedest to be brave. And Dylan...sexy, caring and a spot commanding. They worked very nicely together.
"Oh, fuck, baby, I don't even care if this is some kind of game you're playing. I'm in. Whatever it is, I'm so fucking in."
And that heat. Sweet Mary. This one is red-hot sexy and seductive as all get out. So for most of the book the two haven't met but that in no way means the heat isn't there from the start because hello, phone sex! Yeah. These two get each other all hot and bothered and in some creative ways. Noms! It was shockingly intimate even with the two being in separate locations for the most part.
It's a spot dark as they both deal with their pasts and their secrets are pulled out of them but I enjoyed it and seeing Annie regrouping and finding her place at the trailer park and with those who live there.
The only issue I had was a cliffhanger ending but it actually didn't bother me like it often does in romance. There's hope for the relationship in the future (a plus in my opinion) and a cliffhanger of another sort as her past catches up with her. Something that's going to be a total game changer and seriously has me panting for the next book, like, now. *curses the review pile I need to tackle first* lol
Without question I'll be reading the next book in the series. M O'keefe captivated with an intriguingly passionate romance that left me eager for more.
And I found a hot, secret world where I felt alive for the first time.
His name was Dylan, and, strangely, he made me feel safe. Desired. Compelled. Every dark thing he asked me to do, I did. Without question. I longed to meet him, but we were both keeping secrets. And mine were dangerous. If I took the first step, if I got closer to Dylan—emotionally, physically—then I wouldn’t be hiding anymore. I would be exposed, with nothing left to surrender but the truth. And my truth could hurt us both.
