4.5 Stars. This was not what I expected at all and as someone who has read thousands of books, it’s not an easy task to be surprised. Mac is a young woman in love with an older man and challenged by his two sons. I don’t want to delve too much into the plot because it would taint the experience. The story edges some very fine lines and even tentatively crosses over them but at that point, the characters were developed so well that I wasn’t exactly turned off to what was starting to happen. Without the journey, I don’t think I could’ve turned off my own limiters enough to enjoy this.
Do things happen that are considered taboo or maybe a little traditionally morally wrong ? Yes. Did I enjoy it anyways and was I intrigued enough to keep going? Yes. It’s fiction and entertain it does. I have a feeling I know where the series is headed and I need the peace of mind of confirming my suspicions.
Carter is not what I hope for in a hero. Hunter is someone to watch for. Mac is a mess but I like her anyways. The writing was done well. The plot kept me interested though it started off a little slow. All in all a very interesting read.

When Hunter and Carey decide they want to live with their father in California, Mackenzie knows right away that she’s in for a tough time. And she couldn’t be more right.
The two boys show her on a daily basis that she’s not good enough for their dad. In fact, they make it quite clear their lives would be better without her. But could it be that Hunter has quite a different motive for hating her?
“Shit, man! Don’t call her that!” Carey protests. “That’s never going to happen. Dad isn’t stupid enough not to know a gold digger when he sees one. He probably just wants to wet his dick a little.”
“Dude, seriously?” I ask him. “I don’t even want to imagine him doing that.”
Carey laughs. “You just don’t want him doing it with her.”
Devon looks at me. “You got a thing for Mac?”
I give Carey a deadly look. “I do not have a thing for Mac.” Fuck. How did he know? I thought I’d managed to hide my thing—my giant hard-on thing.
“Then why are you getting all worked up about it?” Ava asks.
Did I say she was cool? No, she isn’t. She’s not cool at all now that I think about it.
“Fuck, Hunt! Are you actually into Dad’s hooker?” Carey sounds shocked. “I was joking!”
I run my hand across my face. “For fuck’s sake—no. Why would I be into someone who’s fucking my old man?”
Carey looks really pale, like he’s about to throw up just thinking about someone being into that viper. And I’d feel exactly the same if…if my dick didn’t get hard at the mere thought of her. It’s so fucked up.
“Seriously, Hunter,” Devon says reasonably. “She’s young. Why shouldn’t you be into her?”
“Are you kidding me? She may be young and have a reasonably okay ass”—I don’t even bat an eye as I lie to them—“but there’s nothing on the inside but the rotting husk of a whore.”
My stories are all about love, but some are of the romantic kind, some of the sad kind and others of the very steamy kind. So if you can stand drama, foul language and sex, you came to the right place.
