For review

My thoughts:
Knox was so dang sweet! Omg this guy was wonderful, so freaking sweet and just, dang.
While Lexie was, ha, not a people person. She was goth, she liked to scared children, she spoke her man. She was a sarcastic prickly thing. I liked her. 

He is 23, she is 28. She is jaded, and well so is he in a way, but he makes up for it by sheer enthusiasm.  She is friends with his brothers gf and so they meet and get it on.

As the blurb does not say more I will not spoil things. But he wants her and he will try and catch her. I loved that about him. He was the sweetest and awwww. While she will try and get away cos dang that woman has issues! I get that you wanna be independent and do things yourself. But it is not weak to ask for help! And trust me, there is this situation where she so needs help and I want to smack her over the head. I get why the author made her that way, but arghhhh, you frustrating woman! You do not deserve this sweet guy!

Tension, passion and a good chase. I enjoyed it!

I liked  Rebecca Estrella, she is good with range and emotion.

As for Rudy Sanda I had the same problem as in a previous books. I get that Knox is a redneck hillbilly, but why make him and his brother sounds SO hillbilly. It is not sexy, I did not get the shivers then. When they talk, ugh, just no. Run and hide. When he narrates it is much better

He does look hot there, but as she describes him he is more like this duck dynasty...ehhh

Knox Price has always fallen short in comparison to his brothers. Boone is the ambitious one. Clay is the nice one. Gage is the handsome one. And Knox? Well, he's the cynical one. The odd man out in the ultra-wealthy but rather unique Price family. It's not that Knox hates people-it's that humanity always disappoints him. When you become an oil-rich, Texan billionaire overnight, people treat you a certain way. Just once he'd like to meet someone that isn't dazzled by his wallet. Then, he meets struggling yoga teacher Lexi Brandon. She's weird. She's unpredictable and tends to say strange things. She lurks in the bushes and dresses in all black. She loves when people cross the street to get away from her. Lexi's definitely not his type, but she's also the first one to ever truly see him and not just another rich, dirty Price. And that's . . . fascinating. But how do you catch the interest of a woman who goes out of her way to be odd? When an unexpected surprise throws them both for a loop, Knox decides it's time to get down and dirty, abandon the rules, and be who he truly is-a bastard. 


  1. I haven't really liked Clare's books so far but maybe I'll give her another shot.

  2. HAHAHAHA I adore that title.

  3. I really didn't like the country accent in book 1 audiobook, I was going to check if the others had it but you answered that :(

  4. LOL, hillbilly accents are the worst if the narrator can't do them right.

    1. I guess they do sound right, but they sure do not sound like sex on a stick

  5. I'd opt for print because the issues would be distracting, I think.

  6. I find it unusual that the woman is older than the man. I don't see that as much.

  7. I haven't read this author before. Too bad you didn't care for the voices used by one of the narrators. It does sound like a fun story though.

    1. So hillbilly. Like all incest on a mountain

  8. I've only read her paranormal stuff (yes, I still miss it). Maybe I should give her books a try in audiobook format. But that accent thing would but me, too.
