I’ve been watching you.
I feel like I’ve been watching you forever.
It started as revenge. You were a means to an end, a way to pay your father back. To avenge my sister. Her death. Her life.
But it turned into something else.
Dangerous. Unwanted. But, maybe, inevitable.
And so here we are.
I’m sorry, Kerri… I didn’t want this.
I didn’t want to shatter you.
But you should know…
You make me weak.

“A part of Trouble is broken too, just like me. Like twin flames dancing to the same song of sorrow.”
Did you see that cover? IKR? I was just minding my own business when it jumped out at me and I was struck with #CoverLust and had to read the synopsis. I was too intrigued to pass it up and decided to give this new-to-me author a try.
Trouble is exactly the type of alpha caveman character that does it for me. He’s broken and beautiful. Bossy and badass. Sweet (behind closed doors) and sexy. He’s determined and delicious. He pursued her for revenge. He planned to use her, to break her. But she turned the tables on him without even knowing who he was or what he intended to do.
She committed the ultimate sin. She made him want her. She made him lose focus, stealing his attention and blurring the future he’d spent years envisioning. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s gonna end up forcing him to choose. Because if he ruins her, he’ll be taking himself out with her.
I devoured this story. I read it cover-to-cover and refused to sleep until I turned the last page. It was kept my attention and had me excited and nervous for the characters as I waited for everything to blow up in their faces once all the secrets were revealed. Their connection was immediate and intense and I hoped that it was enough to overcome the devastation I knew was headed their way. I felt their passion and pain every step of the way and was totally invested. In case you can’t tell, I’ll spell it out for you. I LOVED IT!
