First off I would like to say I received this book from the author in return for my honest opinions. All opinions are on my own and no compensation has been given.
I have to admit that when I started the book I was a little confused as to what was going on and I don't think that I like how it starts off in the present tense and then moves forward into how he got to be where he is in the first place. Now I will also go on to say that once I understood the situation and really got into the reasons that he was behind bars it all made a little bit more sense because I love being in the know. I will also say that even though in the beginning I wasn't as into the book The More I read the more into it I got. Towards the middle of the book I would say is where my rating went up from 3 to 4 stars and it will stay that way for the rest of the book. I really liked the in-depth details that we got about everything, I will say that the author is very good with filling in the blanks and not leaving us guessing and wondering what the hell happened.
Overall I would say that this is a very good read and it is also the first book by this author that I have read and with what this book has left me with...which is my four star rating... that only leads me to believe that I will be reading more by this author soon.
"He was over here for like five hours last night drinking and talking with Dad. You think I like him? My dad's in love. And the way he didn’t hesitate to put Benji in his place, I just think Dad’s got a good feeling about him."
"Shit, I've got a good feeling about him too... and it's in my panties." She laughs and motions toward her crotch. "If I had been working and saw him do that to Benji's fat ass, I would've let him fuck me right on top of the bar…and I would’ve let everyone watch."
"I'm serious. Fuck it!”
"Paige, don't tell me you didn't notice that anaconda stuffed into his jeans?"
"What?! What the fuck are you talking about? Anaconda? I wasn't looking at his damn jeans." I laugh, finding it hard to not to love this girl who has become like a sister to me. She's the craziest bitch I know, but she's got my back no matter what. She's had it since day one.
"Why wouldn’t you look at his jeans? That’s where his dick is!”
