Nick Sebring has never been accused of being a good guy. He is dirty, corrupt, and a liar or at least he was. After a lifetime of living in his brother Knight’s shadow, Nick concocts a scheme to take him down and finally watch Knight’s fall from grace.  However, nothing goes as Nick planned and he finds himself alone, again and examining the man he has become.  After much soul searching Nick’s life finally seems to be on track, he has job that satisfies him and woman to warm his bed and heart, until one day when she is murdered. Now Nick exists for revenge.

Oliva Shade is the daughter of a formerly powerful drug runner and arms dealer. Doing the books and taking care of the men that work for her father makes up her entire life. As her father’s power and wealth circle the drain, he becomes more dangerous and unpredictable. Oliva has longed for freedom her whole life but knows that the only freedom for her lies in death, that is until she meets Nick Sebring. Finally Oliva has something of her own, but nothing is as it seems in this world. As these two fall in love and fight forces trying to keep them apart, will Nick finally be able to keep the woman he loves safe? Especially from himself?

I have been waiting what feels like forever for this book to finally come out. I was expecting another 4-5 star read from Ms. Ashely and so excited to finish this series. However I DNF’d around 50%. I have to say that this had nothing to do with the writing or the narrator for that matter. This was the first audiobook I have attempted and unfortunately they are just not for me. Perhaps if I had tried listening while on a long drive I would have made it to the end of this novel and actually known what happened. I have purchased the ebook and plan to give this one another go!
