Alex has been intriguing me from the background for a while now. Now we get inside his head and my suspicions are proved correct. Lucky Brit. Brit too has been in the picture and has been described as beautiful and smart – so why is she still single? These two are dynamite just needing a match and the stalker after Brit provides the flame that finally gets them together. I’ve read all the books penned by this author and this series is some of her best work. Very emotional but not pretty, she lets the reader into the gritty reality of Alex’s fears and shame and Brit’s insecurities.
We’ve met both Alex and Brit in the previous books in this series so have a fair amount of back-story from the very beginning. Alex is an ass when it comes to women but geometrically so when it comes to Brit. And for some strange reason Brit is attracted to him anyway. They do this dance every time they are together at family gatherings and those around them notice and glean the real reason. When circumstances place Brit in danger, brother Ben asks Alex to watch Brit and he does so grudgingly until he finds out the danger is real and deadly. He fights his feelings more than anything and interspersed with some truly spectacular sex, with lots and lots of hot details, he makes the journey from ass to awesome. A fabulous read.
