From the New York Times bestselling author of Claimed comes the second enticingly erotic novel set in a world on the brink of chaos.**This is an Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.**
Lennox used to live in a paradise on earth with his best friend Jamie, in a place where visitors came and went, allowing their desires to run free. But everything changes when a deadly attack forces them to take up with Connor Mackenzie’s band of Outlaws. Lennox knows Jamie is hung up on someone else, but he’s always believed he’s the man for her—and won’t let her go without a fight.
Even though Jamie is well aware that Lennox is one hot specimen of a man, she refuses to let sex ruin the most important relationship in her life. But when the object of her interest spurns her, she indulges in a little pleasure-filled revenge with her very magnetic, very willing best friend. One thrilling night with Lennox is enough to awaken Jamie’s unexpected desires for him. And now that she’s had a taste, she’s not sure she can ever give him up...
This is the first book I have read by Elle Kennedy and she did NOT disappoint!! Even though I didn't read book one in the series, I was able to read this book with no issues. I will be purchasing and reading book one because of how much I loved book two. Also, I feel it would have flowed easier into this book for me had I read book one.
This story was HOTTT, intense, and insane all wrapped together. I loved every minute of it! A "deadly attack" forced Lennox and Jamie's hand making them take up residence with Connor's band of outlaws. Lennox and Jamie have a very loyal, protective friendship with a constant underlying chemistry. Neither have crossed that friendship line for fear of putting their relationship in jeopardy. Sometimes, however, the chemistry and pull is too strong to resist! Elle wrote the tension between the two so well it scorched the pages!! Lennox is alllllll male. A man's man. Jamie is tough and can hold her own with Lennox. Jamie's main negative quality for me is her temper and lack of control at times. One instance she even hits Lennox. I loved both characters, flaws and all!
This story kept me turning the pages nonstop and kept my attention. Elle is excellent at writing chemistry between characters and I love the creativity of this book and the world she created. Definitely a roller coaster of emotions were felt while I read. This book had all the feels!! This is completely unlike any book I have read and for that, I truly applaud Elle Kennedy. This story has made her a go to author for me. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I do recommend reading book one first to get the back story and be fully prepared for the series.
