He promised to take me as far as I could go – and I wanted to go to the edge. My whole life has been a cover, a con, a lie. I was raised on the thrill of playing someone I’m not. As a rule, I never let anyone get too close – until Cole August makes it impossible for me to stay away. Cole is tough, sexy, and intensely loyal, yet his secrets are dark and his scars run deep. Not many women can handle his past, or the truth behind his fierce demands. But something about him beckons me – and our desire is a game I must play. I know he’s dangerous, that even his touch is trouble, but what is passion without a little risk?
I love Julie Kenner and her books are fantastic, I liked Evans book I adored Tyler’s book but I am going to be honest and say I think Coles book fell a little short, don’t get me wrong I liked reading it, but in the last two books Cole has seemed to be the dark shadow in the background with all these secrets lurking underneath and then we get to his story and it was just good.
I don’t know if it was just me, but I was expecting it to be really dark and emotional, heart pounding intensity, what I got was a walk in the park on a sunny day, I expected and wanted more, maybe that’s my own fault for building the last book in this series up in my head.
Don’t get me wrong the writing is still excellent, the sex is still well written as always by Julie, it’s unusual, steamy and extremely sensual.
But the rest of the story, well for me I think it is the weakest of the three books. Not saying that I didn’t enjoy reading it because I really did. I really like the interaction between the characters and it’s always a plus for me when previous couples and characters show up in other books.
Julie always give us some great male leads there are sexy hot, and her heroines are kick ass. This author will always be one of my go to reads no question.
