The City of Sin holds more than secrets.
He doesn’t remember me.
But, I remember him.
The mysterious and brooding Jay McCall.
His touch. His kiss. His hands on me.
It’s burned into my mind.
The one incredible night we shared.
But, that was before…
Before I lost my brother.
Before grief held me hostage.
He’s back, and it has nothing and everything to do with me.
The secrets he’s keeping are tangled with my brother’s death.
My heart. My body.
At war over a man I barely know.
A man who knows the truth.
He wants me to trust him.
I want to.
But to survive in a place where demons hide,
I must trust no one… not even myself.
That was a rollercoaster read. Full of so many emotions. The highs and lows of Blaise’s life were many. No father figure, a drunk for a mother, but at least she had her baby brother. That was until an accident took her beloved brother away from her.
Told in the first person, Blaise tells us all about her feelings, numbness at the loss of her brother, anger at him leaving her, his friends who abandoned him and her at after the funeral. She was going to leave this small town, her and her brother, start a new life in Vegas. But now she doesn’t want that life, if her brother isn’t there to share it with her.
The couple first meet as an explosive one night stand. The passion between them is off the charts, Blaise needs to feel something, then she will go back to her cold and empty life.
Jay is a cop, he needs to see a young woman by the name of Blaise, he needs to give her certain information about her brother, and to ask if she’s seen a member of the group they both ran with. He’s taken by surprise at the woman he meets, she’s the one he had sex with. He needs to stay professional, but there is something about her that just draws him in.
When Blaise finds out her brother was murdered, a whole range of emotions play out. Fear and rage, concern for the rest of her “family” these boys that ran with her brother mean the world to her. But one of them is missing!! Did he have something g to do with Blake’s murder, or has something happened to him?
I liked this book, I’m hoping for more in the series. It was well written and thought out. The emotions Blaise felt were thoughtfully written. The passion between jay and Blaise was tastefully done.
