It's a life of high-profile drama for the powerful Murdochs of Chesterton, Virginia, and they just keep the scandals coming.
Evan Murdoch hoped things had finally settled down in his life. But now he's caught between two feuding women: his pregnant fiancée and his recovering alcoholic wife, who's fighting their divorce with every dirty, seductive trick she's got. But even that doesn't compare to the dangerous secret Evan's harboring - one that could send a Murdoch to jail for a very long time.
Party boy brother Terrence Murdoch is recovering from his devastating car accident. But his relationship with his journalist girlfriend may not survive, especially when she reconnects with her family, her church, and her ex.
After the attempt on his life, half-brother Dante Turner lays low but not for long. A mysterious young woman may be the answer to his vengeful prayers when it comes to bringing down the Marvelous Murdochs, and this time he's going for the jugular.

I couldn't wait for the next installment of this series. Who shot Dante? Will Evan ever be able to marry Lila or will he stay married to his wife? Is Terrance cutout to be someone's boyfriend? Well I got my answer, but I now have to wait for the next installment to answer a whole new set of questions. The Murdoch's drama is always interesting and Simi Howe always does a great job of narrating!
Positive: The main characters, especially the two main male characters were relatable and the author did a good job of developing them. The narration was good. The book is a sequel but is easy to follow even if the reader has not read the other books in the series.
Negative: The storyline had a few good twists but was otherwise predictable. Sex scenes were too detailed. The first half of the book was better than the second half.
Unlike the first two books, this left me feeling like it was rushed. Dantes' part seemed like fluff. It really didn't have a part in the book. It just didn't seem put together as well as the others in the series. I was looking forward to this and even preordered. A great disappointment.
I can't believe with all the racist crap with cops going on that this would end like this. I'm so upset and I have read all Shelly's books. I can't any more. how is evan going to jail because of a lie. I'm done
