Call me Robin Hood.
I’m a grifter. A con artist.
I don’t steal from the rich. I take from the worst of the worst, the people who deserve to be hustled.
I have two rules – keep moving and never fall in love.
I only ever thought about breaking them for one boy. And that boy just walked right back into my life, a ghost from the past. Silas Saint.
Now he’s a man. Arrogant and sexy as f**k, he’s sure as hell not the person I fell in love with, a lifetime ago.
But when he touches me, it’s enough to make me forget my own name. He makes me want to break all my rules.
I’ve been fighting as long as I could remember. Sh**, I think I came out of the womb swinging. I even tried to go legit until trouble sent me out of Las Vegas and back to West Bend.
I never expected a different kind of trouble to come waltzing back into my life, all curves and tattoos and sass. Tempest Wilde.
Any idea what “tempest” means? A violent f**cking windstorm. That’s s**t I don’t need.
I loved her once, a lifetime ago. Before I knew better.
Love is for suckers, and I’m sure as hell not a sucker.
But the way she looks at me? It makes me want to give her everything I have.
I feel im falling for this series, not because of all the angst ridden drama it contains, it’s not one of those series that will have you gripping to the edge of your seat waiting for the next bomb shell to drop. It’s just because these are good, easy, chilling out reads and sometimes you just need those in between the heartbreaking, ugly cry reads.
I wasnt sure i liked Silas much in the first book, he came across as the hard edged stand offish brother, but as you get to know him in this book you realise his heart is still hurting over Tempest leaving him in his teens. Silas fell in love young and as far as his heart was concerned she was it for him. When he and Tempest are together he transforms, his edges soften just a little. Tempest and Silas has this wonderful chemistry that is born of years of knowing each other, and growing up together.
I loved the fact Tempest wasnt just a grifter she was the robin hood of grifters, making sure the down trodden got some pay back from the rich who stepped on them on there way up.
Letty Tempest’s grandmother is a great character adding to the comic relief in this book. The thread of mystery continues but not quite giving us many clues as to what is really going on in the town keeping you wanting that little bit more.
