I really enjoyed this book. As a debut novel I think Cassy Roop did a fantastic job writing it. The sexual tension between Kendall and Tristan is sizzling hot. You will be on the edge waiting for the shit to hit the fan. I loved the multiple POVs, and it wrapped up with a nice epilogue. I can’t wait to read The Cost of Love, Jax and Cassie’s story.
Cassy is a work at home mom where she spends her days surrounded by children running her in-home daycare. She loves to cook, read and spend her nights and weekends being a Les Mills group fitness instructor. She has been a lover of all things romance from a very early age. She hopes and dreams that everyone can receive their happy ever after. A good ol country girl at heart, she was born and raised in Arkansas and now resides in Charlottesville, Virginia with her husband and three young children.
