Kaylea Cross is always a one-clicked pre-order book for me. I was a little disappointed in her last series, but have been looking forward to this new one. It was worth the wait. Cross gives us Bowie and Apsen both have been through events that systematically changed their lives, but they process them in completely different ways. Bowie is hiding and Aspen is challenging herself to do more. These two are electric together, and when trouble comes to town and threatens their newfound happiness Bowie brings out all the possessive alpha tendencies. There are snippets into the next book which I am anxiously awaiting.
