My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Well, where to begin. I’m going to start with the end and the post credits scene and just say – wtf ladies! I don’t like the look of that and it seems like things are going to be heating up again soon.
Now, back to this actual story and oh my, I don’t think Mark and Griffin could have been any cuter if they tried. This really is a breath of innocence in the ever more murky world of Dom & Seth and the Mark we get here is almost like a new man.
He’s followed Charlotte back to the UK but finds something else way more important and real when he meets her brother. I loved the dynamics between these two.
Mark’s background and upbringing – and his experiences in the last book – have left him scarred but not bowed and he’s determined to make a fresh start with an honest job after his studies.
Griff’s 17 at the start, but his birthday follows quickly after the two meet, and he’s young and naive and sees the world through the veneer of a rich but somewhat lonely upbringing.
There’s the usual shocks galore but this one is missing the violence which is usually a hallmark of the series. That’s not to say there isn’t hurt aplenty and I wanted to hug them both many times (and punch Charlotte in the face a lot too!)
It was a different pace to the usual Guns n’ Boys but no less enjoyable an experience and I was rooting for them both as much as I do for Dom & Seth. And how beautiful is the cover?!
