This is the 2nd book in the Top Shelf series and the one I'd been waiting for, cause who doesn't love a Bad Boy. And that's exactly what Harley Crow is, bad boy, hired assassin and part owner of Spiked Roses.
Marlowe Masters is a waitress at Spiked Roses who is fascinated and enthralled by the resident Bad Boy and would give anything for him to notice her. She finally gets her wish at the exclusive clubs "Tasting" evening. This is the night that begins this story's twisted and bumpy rollercoaster ride of 2 damaged souls who love to test boundaries and push the limits as far as they can, especially in the bedroom with scenes so hot your kindle may catch fire. Told from a dual POV we get a good look inside the hearts and minds of our 2 lost souls and find out about the pasts that lead them to where and who they are today. This highly anticipated second instalment didn't disappoint. It kept me on the edge of my seat, turning the pages as fast as I could to find out what happened next. This awesome couple will bury themselves inside your heart without you even knowing.
This book was amazing. I'm not always into bad boy books - some I like, some I don't. But right from the start this book had me hooked. The characters, the story, the twists, the emotion. I got angry & I cried all during this book. It was fantastic! Yes, it's a little dark & gritty but do not miss this book.
