Fact is, she deserves better. Women pursue him for one night of pleasure, and that’s all he wants to offer. Until rescuing Merissa from a robbery leads to the most erotic encounter of his life.
Good girl meets bad boy. It’s a story that rarely ends well. But Merissa is taking matters into her own hands. No matter how he views himself, the Armie she knows is brave, honorable and completely loyal. And as past demons and present-day danger collide, they’re both about to learn what’s truly worth fighting for…

4 Ultimate Fighting Stars!!
Armie and Rissy have known and loved each other for years but Armie refuses to act on those feelings because Rissy is his best friend’s little sister and a “good girl”, and with his heartbreakingly sad background he feels unworthy. All of that changes when they are brought together during an intense standoff and Rissy’s life is in danger. Armie’s protective nature takes over and he decides he needs to take care of her and, Rissy’s stubborn nature takes over and she decides that she will not let him run away from his feelings for her. Rissy is a strong young woman and knows her own mind, she is a great match for Armie…now she just has to make him believe that.
Both Armie and Rissy are great characters and the chemistry (and love scenes) between them is off the charts!!! There was the obligatory nasty vindictive ex-boyfriend who was after Rissy, a dark secret that Armie has kept from everyone except his best friend Conner, and finally, a troubled young boy who hung out at the rec center who Armie took a personal interest in. Because of his past he connected with this young neglected boy…these storylines blended together quite nicely.
I really loved seeing the characters from the previous books and I loved that Simon, Dakota, Havoc, and Jude along with my favorite Detective Reese Bareden all have pretty significant roles/cameos!!! We get plenty Leese, who has become one of my favorite characters. Leese, who along with Justice, Brand, and Miles will be featured in her next series Bodyguard, and I’m looking forward to that!!!
All-in-all it was a good read but…..we absolutely needed an epilogue, especially this being the last book of the series. I would have liked to have some insight into all the couple’s futures. Had we had a great epilogue it would have undoubtedly been a 5 Star read for me.
