My Disclaimer:

I was provided an ARC of this book. I am voluntarily providing an honest review in which all opinions are fully my own. I am not being compensated in any way.

~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review

What it’s about…

Everyone has secrets, but the Talent family maybe more so that others. Mom died to support Dad’s position with the Vegas mob. Then Elaina took over running Dad’s club and running the drugs for the mob.

Now Elaina’s running for her life. She trusted the wrong person and now the mob’s after her and any family members of hers they can find.

Garrett isn’t sure if he can trust Elaina. But she’s in rough shape and there’s something about her that gets to him. He has to be very careful though because he knows too many of her family secrets to be careless.

Technical Tidbits…

The ARC I was sent had no cover. So after I read the book, I went looking for the cover. The cover is appealing for a contemporary romance and goes well with the two previous books. However, it has nothing to do with this book.

The storyline is good. I haven’t read the two previous books, but it was really easy to pick up the overarching storyline in this book.

The characters were well developed. The author didn’t go into the ones from the first two books, but the two main characters in this book were well done. Some of it was done from getting into their heads and some from their conversations.

The pace was pretty fast. They did have to take time out for sex.

The tension built to a screaming pitch!

And this is where you STOP if you don’t want to see any SPOILERS

The good, the bad, and the ugly…and how much it lit up my life… ✰✰✰✰⭒

Let’s start with the cover, shall we? That’s what attracts me to a book, to begin with. You’re looking along the shelf and it catches your eye. The cover has to catch your eye. This one certainly catches the eye all right, but it has nothing to do with this story. Unless we are supposed to imagine this is what Elaina looks like when she is at her club. I don’t think so. In the book, Elaina has a mop of curls. They drive her crazy and Garrett loves them! Of course. Her sister has provided some clothes for her from the closest Wal-Mart, so she’s wearing “granny panties”, denim shorts, t-shirts, and no make-up.

This is a woman who hasn’t felt a thing with a man for years. She’s a stripper and a topless dancer and she owns the club. In Vegas. She’s had to be hard. She’s buried her feelings so deep she hasn’t seen them in years. But “granny panties” or not, with Garrett, she starts to feel like a woman again. She starts to feel desire and to understand the difference between love and power (lust). She starts to open up to him and allows herself to be vulnerable.

Garrett has PTSD from his tours in Afghanistan, from things he was forced to do while he was there serving as a medic. Elaina really gets to him. They talk and she helps him open up, release some of the pain, talk some of it out. He finds he can laugh again with her. She makes him feel again, maybe love again.

I got to care about these people through the course of the story, to want them to stop hurting and to overcome their problems. Sierra Kincade really writes good characters and draws you in with the emotions she gives those characters.

Suggest you read the first two books first, but the third book is good all by itself! Recommended.
