Pretty things don’t distract me. In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game. I don’t love. I hate. Even a pretty boy like him.


Two wrongs don’t make a right. Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. And if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved. It’s only fair she replace her.

My Review


Kristy Marie gave me an opening scene I could really sink my teeth into. She introduced Connor and Bianca in such an endearing yet shocking way that I couldn't help but fall in love with them. I hated what Bianca did and how it hurt Hayes, but I adored how it all worked out in the end.

Connor Hayes needs absolutely no game or swagger or any other bullshit he thinks he needs to score a woman. All he needs is to have a conversation, and any woman would scoop him up and never let him go. - Bianca

Bianca: brash, ridiculous, irreverent, beautiful, feisty, broken, and kind hearted. She trusted no one and believed in nothing. Love didn't exist, except for the love she had for her mom. She was a thief that never once considered the consequences of her actions. Not until Connor. This man, a man she refused to like, a man she had no intention of caring about, slowly but surely became her everything.

Connor: honorable, hilarious, handsome, humble, broken, brave, beloved, and had a heart of gold. He'd saved up for that bike. Losing it not only hurt his pride, but took away the one thing in this world that was his. So why did he care more about this beautiful stranger than for his one worldly possession? With time and patience, he slowly broke down her walls and showed her who a real man was and what real happiness looked like.

Strong is the courage to take on pain. To choose to do what's right because the people who love you deserve it. Connor Hayes deserves my strength. - Bianca

I loved this book. I loved the characters, the plot, the slow build and sudden bang of love, and the glimpses I got into the hearts of past characters and the characters to come. I'm really looking forward to the stories of Tim and Kane. Those two men have definitely piqued my interest and I'm excited to really get a chance to meet and know them.
