Over the course of a few weeks, Riley becomes her lover, her friend, her everything.

Main characters:
Riley Lang/Lawless
Ellie Starton

What I Liked: The setting of the book is in New York City, unfortunately we didn’t really see much of it, though I hope it changes with the next books. I loved that Case and Mia were in this book and that their HEA was shown.
Riley and Ellie were good together, apart he was kind of a dick and she really na├»ve and gullible. Together they helped each other be so much better: he thought more about the consequences his action had and she was more confident and didn’t buy what everyone was trying to sell.

What I didn't like: Lexi’s books are starting to feel really similar with each other. I still like her writing style and her characters, but this is really bugging me.

Favorite character: Mia because she rocks :D

My least favorite character: The Lilly chick… she was so judgmental when she was no prize.[You’ll see what I mean in the book]

Favorite scene: The epilogue because OMG Bran is so straightforward! Even when he shouldn’t be

Would I recommend the book: Yes. It’s a very entertaining book, it has action, good characters and a mystery that you can’t wait to see resolved.

Final rating: 4.5*
