Sloan O’Malley just left her entire world behind-her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she’s free. She can live the “normal” life she’s always wanted. A life without fear. But there’s nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.

Jude MacNamara has no room for innocence in his life. Only revenge. Still, he’s never been able to walk away from the forbidden, and Sloan-who is every inch of pure, mouthwatering temptation-has forbidden written all over her. Only after it’s way too late does he discover the real danger: claiming Sloan as his puts a target on her back. To protect her, Jude is willing risk everything . . . and to hell with the consequences.

My Review:

I love a little romance mixed with danger. This book is your classic version of bad guy meets good girl, bad guy grows a conscience. But the action and the ties between different families, the complications, made me spend an entire day finishing it. I must mention this is the 4th book in the series and the 1st I read. It can be treated as a standalone, but I would recommend you read the previous ones as well. It will give you a better understanding of the relationships formed and the ties between the families.

Sloan has been aware of the crime in and around her family, but she has managed to maintain a distance, trying not to let drugs or killings affect her. With the help of one of her brothers, she escapes to an isolated town on the beach, to avoid a future any of the daughters of the O’Malley family feared: being married to other lords of the crime scene, so that the family could gain more power. She never expected to fall in love, especially with Jude McNamara, a guy with a hunger for revenge more powerful than anything. He, on the other hand, only wants some fun and information.

This book is action-packed from start to end, with some twists and a good dose of sexual activities. Told on the third person, we get to experience both our main characters. The author also gave us the opportunity to explore the story from all angles. We even get to see some glimpses from some other characters, and that stimulates our chase for the other books in the series.

Sloan maintains her opinions throughout the book. She keeps her distance from the war between crime lords, even trying not to get between her brothers. She loves her family, but understands she’s different than all of them. If one of her sisters is married (happily) to one of the leaders of the crime life, trying to set him on the right path, the other sister is leading a life that drugs and alcohol dictate. Sloan just wants tranquility and she’s willing to fight for it. For a girl used to have it all, or better not used to do anything, she is brave enough to get a job and live on her own. She has seen and heard enough not to let herself collapse in tears. I loved her personality a lot! She’s one character that does not change at all, mainly because she has reached a point of maturity, where she will explore only her sexuality.

Jude only wants revenge on the Sheridans for killing his family. He has waited all his life for the perfect opportunity. However, he has not taken into account this innocent girl that makes him crazy with desire. He will unleash passion inside Sloan, while she will give him hope. But it all seems impossible to achieve.

I enjoyed every chapter and I cannot wait to get into Dimitri’s story. This is what I mostly loved about this book: it makes me read the next character’s life. However, I did not enjoy the full on sex talk. It did not sit well with how pure Sloan is. Other than that, no other complaints. I will add this series on my list and Kate Roberts is definitely an author worth following. Enjoy!
