It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against Him: the sexy bastard with a big…ego.
I thought I’d hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.
That is until HE sat next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He’s a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me.
I thought I’d give him hell for one, long flight. I didn’t expect to like him. I didn’t expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me too. Only in a way I didn’t see coming.
If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can’t manage. But I’m tempted to say yes. Because the real man beneath those perfect suits and that cool façade just might be the best thing that’s ever happened to me. And I just might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart.
Let the battle begin…
I think I loved this book even more than the last. Maybe it’s because I like Gabriel “Scottie” Scott a bit more than Killian, or maybe it’s because Jax finally decides not to be a dark cloud raining on everyone, but I devoured this book.
Everything that was good about the last book, this book has it in
Gabriel’s backstory broke my heart, as did his need of Sophie to sleep (though that actually melted my heart rather than broke it). The way he asked her though had me smiling. I love the guy, but he doesn’t always think through how his actions will affect her (though he always seems to be aware of how his actions affect Kill John).
A few other things I loved, the way Gabriel goes nuts when he thought Jax and Sophie slept together, learning how the other Kill John members could hear Killian and Libby in the last novel when they thought they were being quiet, and the epilogue to this story was just so sweet, it had me grinning from ear to ear.
