Great start to this story, but this is book one of three. I have read all three and this was my favorite. The book is too short, but if you are lookin..Show More »g for something quick to fill a few hours then this is perfect. And if you like it you there are two more books which are out now so you won't have to wait for the like I did.
I love Hauk -- and Jolie, of course, but what I really love is the snappy dialogue and original idea for a romance in this well written and entertaini..Show More »ng series. Book 2 is every bit as entrancing as the first book and I hope Ms. Garren writes on and on. I especially love that this author is not following the genre's tiresome standard of each book dealing with different set of main characters -- I prefer to be able to follow the characters I love through a series of books. I wish more authors would do this, but I know not everyone feels as I do.
Couple of thoughts: One reviewer for the first book wrote: ". . . I felt a little concerned that beauty is only 17 and working in a strip club." First of all, Jolie is 24 years old, so I'm not sure if that reviewer was reviewing a different book by mistake. Also, Jolie does not work in a strip club -- she is a burlesque dancer, not a stripper, so again -- different book?
Also, there is a great new PR series that is only available on Amazon (so far!) -- it is fantastic and not to be missed. Look up: J. T. Geissinger's "Night Prowler." You can thank me later! (and no, I have no monetary interest in the sales of this series -- just doing a good deed for fellow PR fans.)
First, I would highly recommend you read the first two books of this series before you start with this book. There is a lot of reference to previous c..Show More »haracters, scenes, and plots that took place in the first two books of this series, plus they are just fantastic reads as well.
This book tied it up the story so nicely for me. It wasn’t a pretty relationship that came together and everything fit like a puzzle. Their story was heartbreaking and warming and ugly and real. Hauk and Jolie had to fight for their relationship with the world and themselves. Jolie had to learn to trust in someone besides herself and Hauk had to learn to let someone love him for him. From the moment I started listening to this story until the end, I was right there with them. Every twist and turn, had my tuning out the world to follow their story. I love Hauk. I wish a guy like him was in my future. He is brave, loyal, generous, very passionate and full of life, despite the events that have happened in his life. Jolie is beautiful, smart, sass and courageous. She is beauty and smarts in a package deal. I will not give too much of the plot away but I will say that I cried.
