I have been in the rabbit hole of Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alavarez for a while now, and I can’t say that I am disappointed by it. This book follows a little bit of a different formula for them in the sense that Callan Hawk is a lawyer not a layman or member of an MC. Denver Hollis has basically been crapped on by the world over the past year and she is struggling to make ends meet. Fate steps in and life takes a turn for the better. She meets Frances who hires her right away for a job that Denver feels she isn’t qualified to have, but Frances sees something in her that she wants to make life better for Denver. Callan is a no-nonsense lawyer who is harsh and unforgiving in many aspects of his life.
What follows the usual formula of Ms. Daniels and Alvarez is the fact that once Callan sees Denver, other women cease to exist for him. While it is a slow build up to them becoming a couple because of the situations surrounding them, they move fast once that first step is taken. However, someone doesn’t want these two to be happy and things happen. Callan makes a HUGE misstep and I applaud Denver for her reaction and the subsequent actions because of it. Denver finds so much of herself in this book, and Callan opens a side of himself that he never truly lets any one into. These two have strong stories that I can’t get enough.
I wish I have more from Callan’s POV, and so more discussions concerning their pasts and why they each ended up exactly where they are. That being said, this is a wonderful quick read that everyone should give a chance.
