After reading the first book in this series, Hammered, I wasn’t sure if this was going to be something I was going to enjoy. Hammered was very heavy on the erotica and fairly light on the storyline and I had expected much the same from this book. I am very ecstatic to say that I was wrong. Yes, this book did have some pretty intense sex scenes, but they were always secondary to the Garrett and Juliana.
After reading Hammered, I wasn’t sure that Juliana could be redeemed. I was actually pretty sure I would never like her no matter what happened with her. She had done and said things that were seemingly unforgivable. If took some time, a lot of time – most of the book, really for her to win me over piece by piece. Her past, her fears, combined with some bad choices by all parties made her choices much easier to understand. She was more damaged than I could have imagined and I loved getting to witness her heal and become a person who was deserving of all the things she was sure she never would.
Garrett had his own truckload of horrific things in his past, some of his own doing and some thrust upon him by the most types of people. The dynamic between him and his brothers, particularly Gage, made this story for me. Their relationship started as the kind of thing nightmares are made of and slowly morphed into a beautiful demonstration of love and kindness. The way that Gage took cared for his brothers, Juliana, and Brandon showed just how magnificent a person he was in spite of the things life had dealt him.
While there were some things I wish would have been more fully resolved, I know there is another book, Grayson’s, coming and I’m hoping to find answers in it.
