To get to him, I need to use her.

I’ll play her like a violin and have her falling in love with me before she even knows what’s happening.

It will be easy. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.

She’s just a girl.

A tool to get what I want.

When I’m done with her I won’t think twice about walking away.

At least, that was what I thought.

Until I met her.

The next book in the series, BACK TO BACK, will be released on June 9th!

...appearances are always deceiving...
Hm... What can I say without giving too much away...?

How about this -- this puppy ends in a cliffhanger. One I didn't see coming, but I should have because I knew about book 2, but still... didn't see it coming. 

So before I go into my review of this gem, I just gotta say: I am so flipping glad that book 2 is in her point of view. Oh, I loved that this was in Quinn/Sylas's view point, but I'm excited to get into Saige's mind next.

As the synopsis states, Sylas and his group of mismatched brothers are on a mission to take down Beaumont – and they figure the best way to get to him is to go through his daughter, Saige. Sylas decides he’s the man for the job – for multiple reasons, but the biggest one being that he can keep true personal feelings away from the mission. He’s a very sure-of-himself type of twenty-four year old. He is well aware that relationships are ‘forbidden’ but sex is not. He can keep it in his pants, he thinks; and if he can’t, well… There will be no falling, he knows better.

Oh, but isn’t that what they always think?

Sure enough, Sylas, playing as Quinn Brand, does indeed fall for the red-headed, green eyed daughter – and it surprises him.

I loved this group of men. Their comradery was so fun. This was a group of mismatched men who actually got along fabulously – like a bunch of brothers. Each one has a story to tell, I’m sure, and I’m hopeful that Chelsea will give them all their due. Something tells me that Cash’s falling will be a riot, that’s for sure – he’s strong and lighthearted for the most part, and when something baffles him and the smile falls for the moment, it makes me smile. And the ever secretive Hardy... I want to know him.

As much as I enjoyed Cash and his hacking abilities, I really, really enjoyed Sylas. I loved that his root for everything was family – namely his sister. He would do anything to keep her safe, and he does. She needs to stay in a group home, but he refuses to have her in bad homes, or homes too far away from him. He visits her as often as he can and he’s genuinely good to her. Yeah, sure, they’re siblings, but the sibling bond between him and his sister is thick and was heartwarming to watch. It helped give more of a human aspect to Sylas.

“Quinn” and Saige use full names a lot when talking to one another – it’s like a cute nickname kind of thing… I have a deeper theory, but it’s not something I’m willing to share until the next book ;)
Yes, the end is a doozy of a cliffhanger and while I could be upset about it, I’m not. One, I knew it was coming; two, it was a bit of a twist that I really didn’t see coming; and three, the break between books gives me a little bit of time to process what is going down (while I read probably twenty other books, but I’ll still be processing, no worries).

This book, while different, reminds me a bit of the Sin Trilogy by Georgia Cates. I’m curious to see how it all plays out. How much was lies? Was there any truth in the deception? And where, oh where, was Saige’s mind in all of this…? I have my thoughts about her, but they aren’t thoughts that I can share in this review; I will have to wait until BACK TO BACK.
