Official Blurb: Jules is running from her old life and the man who wants to lock her up and abuse her. She’s finally escaped, but she’s run right into another mountain of trouble. She agrees to do one last job for her new boss and then she’s out. But once again she’s caught in the middle when she’s taken hostage by a hot stranger named Cooper.
Cooper is robbing from the rich to give back to his community and make the town he grew up in a safer place. He and his band of brothers are stealing every dime from the local mob, but when it’s time to grab the bag, he gets more than he bargained for.
Warning: If being held against your will with this hot alpha is a crime, then lock me up! These two get cozy while on the run and burn up the road. Grab it now and lock it down… We promise you won’t be disappointed.
Review: To me, this was unlike any AR book I’ve ever read before. It was different, but in a good way. It had a different type of vibe, and I was pulled in from the start.
Poor Jules can’t catch a break. It seems like everywhere she goes she finds herself in dangerous and crazy situations. She is on the run from a crazy man, but now, she has found herself tied back up with someone who isn’t who she thought. She knows she has to get away from him as well, and she agrees to do one more job. After the job, she is out, but that all changes, when Cooper shows up. Now, she is stuck in a hostage situation, but this time, it might actually be one she doesn’t want to escape.
I adored both Cooper and Jules. There were some trust issues at first, but you can’t blame Jules, because of all the bad stuff that happened to her. Deep down, she knew that Cooper was a stand-up guy, but her heart and mind had to learn to believe in him. But Cooper fell head over heels the minute he laid eyes on Jules, so he waited patiently for her to catch up. The chemistry is amazing as well as the steam in this book. Can’t wait to for the next one.
