Sam Crescent is the Queen of BBW romance and when this contemporary romance easily proves it. My favorite stories are those with curvy heroines and Charity is a lovely, larger lady. But it isn’t who she is, it is simply a portion of who she is and I liked that her size didn’t have a staring role in the story. For me this author rides the fine line between light and dark giving me just enough viciousness to keep me on the edge but balances it with some hot passion and some sweet romance.
Dwayne Carson is an enigma. He has no qualms killing but he is so gentle with Charity. He doesn’t treat her like a broken victim, nor does he treat her like a child. He sees her for who she is. I enjoyed how mature Charity was. Even though she had been a victim she did not need my pity as she was handling herself quite well. I appreciated the fact that she knew everything about him, his past, his actions, his appetites and his family. I loved catching up with some fabulous characters I’d met in previous stories. If you love dark, Alpha men and the women who keep them from going too feral this is a must read.

The only person who makes her feel normal is Dwayne. He’s back in her life now, and she can’t stay away.
