Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.
An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.
With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.
I looooovee this series! I have been itching to get my hands on this book for what seems like forever. The previous book in the Bad Boy's series left me with a lot of questions about our mysterious, bad boy Nash. I wanted to know what made him tick. He seemed so angry. He had good reason, but was he really that angry? Or was he using that hard shell as a cover? HE WAS REALLY THAT ANGRY. Nash is bitter and out for revenge. He's seeing with tunnel vision and revenge is in his sights. He's angry with the situation, he's envious of his brother...he is angry.
Here's the reason I was worried about this book -- Marissa. I didn't like her in the other books. Not even a little bit. In fact, I didn't even feel that bad for her when she was kidnapped. I tried, I really did; I may have felt a little bit of pity for a little while, but I really just didn't like her. I didn't like that she had a history with Cash. I realize this is misplaced jealousy, but whatever... I didn't like it. AND I didn't like her. So, when I found out she was getting her own book, I was a little concerned. I should have known better. M. Leighton always knows what to do to win me over. Marissa is a whole new person in this book. I guess when you get kidnapped it kind of puts everything into perspective and may make you change your ways.
Nash isn't looking for anything serious; he makes that clear. Marissa knows that Nash is in it for one thing and one thing only, but she feels a pull to him. The question is whether or not Marissa can wiggle her way into Nash's sights in the midst of his quest for revenge. Will she get burned again by another bad boy? I'm not telling....nanananabooboo!
M. Leighton is one of my favorite authors out there. Her writing is fun and catchy. It's always a joy to read one of her stories, but I'll always love the Bad Boys the most!
I LOVE THIS SERIES!!
