5 Stars

After reading Better When He’s Bad I couldn’t wait to jump into this one. I love forbidden love and love from the other side of the tracks.

Race Hartman is a bad boy in every since of the word. While he grew up with wealthy and privilege on The Hill, he traded it all to help Bax. Now he is the king of the bad, leader of the crime ring. He only truly cares sister Dovie and his childhood friend Bax. Despite this there is just something about Race. First, I love a bad boy and he is the ultimate bad boy. Race is crazy smart, charming and dangerous.

Brysen Carter is barely hanging on she is attending college and working, not to mention trying to maintain some type of family structure for her sister. She has always been attracted to Race Hartman, but she knows he is the worst thing for her, just another worry and distraction. Regardless of her attraction she is convinced being to together would be a bad idea so she puts up walls to prevent herself from getting hurt. One night at a party they share a hot kiss and there is no telling where things could have gone, if a shooting hadn’t occurred.

As the story progresses Race and Brysen continue to run each other and interact. They’re both obviously attracted to each other, but there isn’t much they can do considering their circumstances and timing. When Brysen begin receiving threatening messages and is attacked everything changes for Race. I loved how the story really picked up from here and left me guessing. I enjoyed how Crownover didn’t try to make Race into a good guy, he isn’t a good guy, he is bad and so damn good at it I wouldn’t wan this any other way.

I really loved Race and Brysen’s relationship played out. I love how he was protective of Brysen and allowed her to rest from the constant strain of caring all the weight in her family. In return she gave him consistency and a safe place to be himself, a place to come home to. I love how they changed each other and brought out the best.

This story is about two people who started from the same place, got lost in the middle and came back together for the end…their forever.
