His darkness drew me in.
A mystery with a past I wanted to solve.
He was cold, like ice, but set me on fire.
A heat I hadn't felt in ages.
But when I saw his face, I burned...
She melted from my voice--shuddered from my touch.
But trembled from the memories
That my face brought back.
She wanted more...
Maybe even him.
I wasn't the hand she counted on.
But I was what she was dealt...
A Wild Ace with no way to win.
Wow just wow! I actually read a "real" book with a well developed story, and fully developed characters! It was so good I cried at the end.
This story touched my heart in so many ways. Yeah it was kinda instant love/lust between them, but I think that it iss possible between people. It is true sometimes you just know! I like Brea a great deal. A strong woman who knows what she likes and isn't afraid to say or go after it. I had tremendous emotion for Trapper. He touched my heart with all the pain and agony he went through and then in his own way tried to help others. On top of that he was a hot dirty talking sexy guy!
The chemistry between the two was hot...steaming hot. The self love kinda was too much, but I got over that. The characters had that hotness but also a deep tramatic story behind them. Very twisty! I did appreciate how the initial shock reactions didn't go too far and the characters didn't self destruct. They listened to themselves and the friends in their lives to really get a true heartfelt response to the drama.
Great read it does have triggers for abuse in all forms so be aware! I think I want to read more from this author! Wonderful wonderful story!
