“This is me. I protect the people I love.”
Sexy, action-packed, Alpha male fun!!
Teehee!!! I really enjoyed this!! The hero was a total Alpha male (bossy, possessive, bit of an ass, huge heart) and the heroine was hiding out at his house because she’d witnessed a mob hit which naturally brought out his uber-protective side 😉 But, as per the title, they both made assumptions about each other that got them off to a rocky start. They both judged. He assumed she was a stripper. She assumed he was an asshole. Neither of them were completely wrong but they also did not have the right idea either. And the fun process of seeing them untangle their assumptions from reality began….
I loved the whole set up of the story. This was one of those books where I tested out a chapter to see if I liked it and then I just never put it down and kept flipping those pages right through ’til the end!
Some scenes had me laughing out loud for pages on end, and others would hit right in the feels. Lots of sexy hot steaminess, sweetness, ‘omg-he-did-not-just-say-that’ moments, all mixed in with a healthy dose of badass action. Roll all that together with great dialogue and a fast-paced plot and you’ve got a really fun read!
“You should never judge, sweet cheeks. I was a sniper. I know how to kill someone with one finger, and I guarantee nothing will happen to you while I’m here.”
Kenton Mayson was about as badass as they come. Dangerously protective. That man was willing to go to any lengths to protect his woman and was way more concerned with justice than he was with the law. But he loved her completely and you could see that in all his actions towards her. It was seriously endearing.
Autumn was the kind of girl who didn’t let life get her down. She had some hilarious moments (that bed/balcony scene? LOL!!) and I liked that she wasn’t afraid to stand up to Kenton no matter what he did.
Most of the story is from Autumn’s POV but we also get key scenes/chapters from Kenton’s side of things. And I really loved that we had a nice, long epilogue at the end!! — There were a few things here and there that I wanted a little ‘more’ or a little ‘less’ of, but overall, I really enjoyed it and will absolutely be looking forward to more books by this author!!
If you’re in the mood for a fun, Alpha male romance with a badass hero, a feisty heroine, and a great blend of action, steam, and romance, give this a try!! 🙂
Rating: 4 — 4.5 stars. Can be read as a standalone.
This is a standalone and the first book in a new series of standalones that spins-off of The Until Series, which SO many readers have told me they loved!! This was my first book by this author however, and you could totally either start with this one or read it on it’s own.
