Hello everyone! Happy Monday, and Happy Labor Day to my US folks. I’m so freaking tired today for some reason and I’m just really grateful that I am not working today. I needed the rest, apparently! Thank you so much to Silver Dagger Book Tours for including me on this tour. Click on the banner above to see the rest of the tour schedule.

Don’t you love the bad boy trope? I know I do.
Deacon is the resident bad boy in this story as Juliet comes across him while being attacked by a mountain lion in the woods. Mountain lions? This is why I don’t go hiking in the woods! What makes Deacon this bad boy that Juliet may not be able to handle? Well, his family is involved in organized crime, and we all know how that can turn out.
I don’t think Juliet knew what she was getting into, but that’s what made the story more fun to read. I don’t usually read organized crime romances, but I’m glad that I got to. I think it’s one of my more intriguing romance tropes now that I read this one, and I’ll have to try some more in the future.
I liked the building tension between Juliet and Deacon as the time goes by, as Juliet learns more about who Deacon is and what kind of secrets he may be hiding. I liked their interactions and felt really immersed in the novel. I’m curious to see how the next book in the series goes!

When Juliet goes into the woods to find the sexy, mysterious stranger who rescued her from a mountain lion attack, she finds more than she bargained for.
