Genevieve Daylee didn’t expect to be standing in front of a judge on her twenty-seventh birthday. But ever since her life became entangled with a former motorcycle gang, she’s learned not to expect anything but trouble.

Her mother, a woman she once admired and adored, is gone, leaving behind a trail of secrets and lies. She’s living in a tiny apartment above a garage owned by her brother, a man who loathes her very existence. And the father she met beside her mother’s grave is as much of a stranger as Isaiah Reynolds, the broken man with soulless eyes standing beside her in front of the judge.

Isaiah is her protector from the murderer at large in Clifton Forge. Though he’s more like a riven knight in dented armor than a prince on a white stallion. She knows next to nothing about him, other than he works as a mechanic. As of tonight, he’ll be sharing her bathroom.

And, according to the judge, Isaiah is now her husband.


Gahhhh, I’m a huge fan of Devney’s, so pleaseeeeee don’t let this review think otherwise. I also think it should be illegal to rate one of her books below 4 stars…

I reallly wanted to love this one, but it didn’t quite reach what I was hoping for. If you’ve read the Devney’s previous books, you get the introduction of Isaiah and with that being said, I kind of set my expectations really high. Because my goodness, his story is not an easy one, truly heartbreaking.

It was tough for me to get through the first half of the book, there just wasn’t a whole lot happening, not only between Isaiah and Genevieve, but just in general. But things really picked up about half-way through and that’s what I was hoping for from the very beginning. Devney definitely gave us some turns that were completely blindsiding!

I did like the various story arcs going on especially between Genevieve and Dash, there was a lot of movement in that story and I really enjoyed that even if a certain someone was being a GRADE-A douchebag.

Overall, I think this one just needed more especially with the romance, I was constantly begging for it. I’m still 100% invested in this series and absolutely cannot wait for Stone Princess, I have so many questions and I’m looking forward to getting to the root of everything.

Devney, I love you forever and forever … please don’t hate me.

major thank you to the author for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.
