I'm a cautionary tale. A statistic. A victim. A single teenage mother from the poor part of town. Most of the time, I'm too busy working and struggling to care what people think. Survival doesn't come easy.
I have a dark secret, a pressure valve, a rare moment just for myself. On these nights, I visit a club. There, I find men who give me what I need.
Men like Colin.
But he wants more than a few stolen hours. He demands more than my body. He wants my heart and soul - my happily ever after. I never thought I'd be Cinderella. I never thought a man that rough could be my prince.
Contains Rough, Hard, and Fierce, the complete story of Colin and Allie.

I was like really, the end? I don't want their story to end. I loved how they were together. An unusual start and loving ending. And I did not understand Phillip at all. I hope one of these is about him.
As of lately I have encontered a lot of book IDNF... halfways thur i just loose interest... Rough Hard fierce was not one of those.. this book is completely Alpha and hot... never lost my attention and greatlly written... i loved Colin and Ally's story... i dont want to give much away and spoil it but if your stuck in a book rut lije i was give this audible a try you just may end up living it and find a new favorite author.. i know i did!
Where to start?.....Ok let's have some real talk here... First off this series was the first set that I've read by Skye Warren. I've had this series on my TBR list forever but was too chicken. Guess what I am so glad I caved and read! I'm now a fan and can't wait to pick up the next Skye Warren book on my list.
So you're probably wondering why it took me so long. I'll be honest with you some of the reviews scared me to death so I'm going to clear up a few things (in my opinion) about this series. First there are a few triggers in this book, rape. Yes Allie was raped as a child by her "bestfriend" which in turn gave her the idea that ALL men don't stop at the word NO. In my opinion this is totally understandable being that this happened to her at such a young age. Second yes there is prostitution/escort in this book do I agree with Shelly, Shelly is Allie's best-friend and neighbor, choose profession? No BUT sometime you have to do what you have to do to survive. Now on to the secrets and boy oh boy are there secrets being kept throughout this series. Am i going to tell what these secrets are..NOPE READ to find out :-) Some are justifiable and some you're going to be like "really just tell the damn truth because you know there is going to be trouble when the truth comes to light."
Ok so I've touched on Allie and Shelly now Bailey is the little ray of sunshine throughout these books. She is Allie daughter that she had with her rapist/ex-bestfriend Andrew. This little girl always makes her presence known when things get a little too intense. Now on to Colin. Colin meets Allie during one of her "date nights" at the club. Colin isn't one of Allie's regular "date night" hook ups. Colin gives Allie everything that she didn't know a man could provide to a woman, safety and affection. Colin is a man of few words but he's oh so HOT!
Now do I recommend you read series.... YES but be warned this isn't your regular sunshine and rainbows romantic read. This series is real, suspense, intense, in your face romance. Give it a read I promise you won't be disappointed.
this book was nothing like any other it was very very dark sexy hot passionate crazy it was wild ride withe storyline the characters were not like any others I have read or listened to.
This book had romance and drama with so much suspense, Is' a book you will not want to put down. I had gotten so wrapped up in the characters. I felled sorrow for all the characters at any given time. I was hoping for happiness went I thought it would end badly. Amazing and awesome books.
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
A damaged but strong and fierce female lead coupled with a dark and broody, secretive male lead makes for an intensely satisfying listen.
Rose Dioro was perfect for this role as her narration was not only technically amazing, but the emotion she portrayed was convincing and enthralling.
I cannot wait to continue on with the Chicago Underground series, most definitely credit worthy.
