I am the shadow that haunts the night. I am a hunter, a protector…a force for good…I am Jonas Castillo.
For years I’ve existed on the edge of the dark, protecting innocents who can’t protect themselves. Until… her. Jessica JJ Jones. The bane of my existence. A bright light in the dark. The crack in my armor. A loud, argumentative beautiful crack in my armor.
But first, there’s a more immediate concern. JJ is running scared. And to protect her I might have to break the vow I made years ago.
Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella “Teasing Trent,” her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.
She’s now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.
I love these two author’s writing. I love this group of men, and I loved this book. It was SO close to being a 5-Star read for me. As I said, the writing was excellent. The pace was fantastic. It had an interesting plot that kept me glued to the pages. There was no OW/OM drama. Some smokin’ hot sex scenes. A fabulous cast of secondary characters. An extremely likable and sexy alpha hero and a heroine that was the reason this lost some starage. All wrapped up in one HELL of a cliffhanger. I SO need book two NOW.
I am going to be straight up honest and admit I am SUPER friggin picky with my heroines. There is a fine line between feisty and being a bitch. As there is with being independent and being stupid. Unfortunately for the first half of this book, I found JJ crossed over into the annoying side for me. Was her and Jonas’s banter great at times? Indeed it was. Was her snapping bitchily at him one too many times cute? No, it was not. While I understood her wanting to keep her past private for awhile. Once things started to happen her continued refusal to tell anyone about it came across as extremely stupid and to be honest selfish. So yes I did struggle with her at times and that ultimately had me lowering my rating a bit. All in all, though I did enjoy this one and am looking forward to book two and what this author has in store for us next.
Hi there! I’m a mom and wife by day (and night), aspiring writer (in my dreams), and an avid reader (every day of the week). This is my little corner of the web to post about ALL things books. I live in Copenhagen, but I am a Canadian girl (born and raised) at heart.
