After reading the ‘His Wicked Games’ series I wasn’t sure about reading Lou’s story. I grew to have a strong dislike for her after she left her brother, Calder, behind to pick up the pieces of their father’s estate after his death. She was a free-spirited rich girl who seemed to do whatever she wanted and didn’t care what others thought.
Boy, was I wrong!
Louisa Cunningham is a surprise. She is young and has a lot of growing up to do, but she won over my heart with her need for closure and insane antics to get it.
The family fortune is gone and the home she grew up in was sold and has been turned into a hotel. She’s not ready to let her past without leaving her mark. As the master of disguise and intrigue she grabs the attention of Ward Brannon. Hold on. Let me re-phrase that. She grabs Ward Brannon and he won’t forget it. Literally.
Ward Brannon is a mystery of his own. A brawler who has been hired as a contractor to remodel and restore Lou’s former home. He is not prepared for her entrance into his life, but once she gets under his skin there is nothing that can remove her…until secrets about their pasts come to the forefront.
Lou was a wonderful surprise. She was spirited and sneaky, two things I love. Ward was cocky and mysterious. When the two of them were together it was combustible and the end was full of fireworks…and I’m still waiting for the finale (please write faster, Ember).
Ember is a flawless storyteller. The twists and turns in this book are incredible and kept me sucked in the entire time. I was on the edge of my seat several times as well as squirming in it as well. It was the perfect mix of emotion.
I cannot wait for the release of Lost and Found! 4.75 crazy stars!
