For the past nine years, I’ve kept my heart as far away from my dick as possible.
Those two can’t be anywhere near each other. They don’t play nice, and one of them undoubtedly winds up getting hurt.
Not my dick. My dick is good.
The women I take home know exactly what they’re getting from me — sex. Nothing more. At least, that’s what’s supposed to happen. The sweet brunette from Kentucky I set my sights on tonight shouldn’t have been any different. I had her right where I wanted her. Where I needed her. But when my past comes walking into McGill’s pub, the woman in my arms decides to take things to a whole new level, putting me into a situation I never saw coming.
My heart is about to get f**ked. My dick can sit this one out.
I’ve been curious about Reed since book 1, because he was always described as a manwhore, but I knew something had happened to him in the past, so I was curious to see how that had affected his actions. I loved Reed! I loved how unapologetic he was about who he was, but he also didn’t deny his feelings, and never lied to Beth. He was all in since the beginning, even if he wasn’t aware of it.
And Beth was just such a great and amazing person. I was a bit scared about the darkness that had been in her life for so long, but she was a survivor, and she still kept a positive view of the world, so it was impossible not to love her. Also, I just loved that this girl didn’t care what she looked like and what she wore.
The romance was also great, and I loved these 2 together. They had amazing chemistry and it was so clear how they felt for each other.
I only had a couple of things that weren’t that great. For one, the romance starts very much as instalove, and while I did like the way it played out, I still wish they had gotten to know each other a little bit more, before the big feelings came into play.
Another small issue I had was with Beth’s family life. I wanted more details on what had happened between her and Rocco, I wanted to see even more of her bonding with her uncle and aunt, because I felt like they accepted her very easily without almost any questions, and I just needed a bit more, you know? Then there’s the matter of her missing parent, and how she’s so willing to accept it… even though I understood her reasons, I wanted her to be a bit more skeptical, but hey, she was a positive view of everything kind of girl, so I cannot really blame her.
Overall, I really really enjoyed this one, and I’m excited for the next couple of books. I love the group dynamics, and I just adore that Reed considers Mia and Tessa his BFFs, eheh. Can’t wait to read the next one…
