Sawyer Hunt has always been confident with his place in the world. He knows what he wants, conceals his painful truths behind a mask of cool indifference and keeps his circle small. The only person who has ever come close to smashing through his inner walls is the one person his parents will never accept.
Xavier Daniels is sick of being Hunt’s dirty little secret. When he fled the ugliness of his past, he swore he would never again hide who he is. Or let anyone hurt him or make him feel ashamed. So, discovering the man he’s in love with is engaged to some mystery woman devastates him. Forced into making the only decision he can, Xavier locks up his heart, determined to keep Hunt out for good.
Sydney Shaw is the bane of her father’s existence. But he’s finally found a way to end her rebellious streak—marry a virtual stranger or be cut off forever. Hunt could be a great husband, if he wasn’t such a cold, moody jerk and she wasn’t still hung up on the guy who broke her heart at fifteen.
Marrying Sydney to save his father’s company is a sacrifice Hunt will make because he suspects the elite is involved, and it’s up to him and his friends to stop them. With his heart also on the line, Hunt is determined to end the threat quickly or risk losing the one person he now realizes he can’t live without. Consequences be damned.
Sawyer is very unhappy with the turn of events. He’s been put between a rock and a hard place. He’s a good reminder that this is a series that should be read in order. Xavier seems to be getting the short end of the stick – your heart will break for him. Sydney is in a situation not of her making.
This author is full of surprises with this book. You’ll be astounded by with how creative she is with Sawyer’s story. I was hooked from the beginning and there was no way that I wasn’t going to get this finished as quickly as I could. Make no mistake, I didn’t speed-read or skip around in order to accomplish that. Our author just had the right combination to have me wonder what was going on. She gives us just the right amount of suspense and mystery as well as inserting some steam and tension into the mix.
At first, I thought Sydney was going to be a main character but then she seemed to fade into the background. She was important to help some of the story move along and in the end I wanted to know if she was all right. If you’ve read the first book then you will recognize some of the characters that appear here. Other characters from previous books in the series will also appear. There were a couple of times where my mouth dropped open and then another I couldn’t help but utter “what!”. I decided that this was the best book of the series to date. She made me happy when she let me know that there’s another book in the series - then I finish with an “oh no!” But there’s plenty of other books by Ms. Davis for me to check out.
