From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the first in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.
Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?
How would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.
That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently.
Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get.
My Review: Muse is a very tough girl but an amazing one at that. Shes been through hard times and it wasn't easy for to make the decisions she did. But after making it and continuing on with life, things slowly start to get better. Days go on and it sets her in a normal routine. But then she hits a curve ball. Her dad has gone missing. So much for things going perfectly.
Now she needs to find him and thats when Jasper enters the picture. A bounty hunter who will help find her dad. But I guess you can figure out whats about to happen. Jasper has a plan of his own. Make Muse all his. Hes dangerous and yet there is always something about a dangerous man. So does Muse fall for him and see how things go?
Well things heated up and the details where there. It just lacked a few things to fully grab me and make this book unique. I've read a bunch of books like these and it so easy to sound the same. Sadly this one just seemed like a lot of other books that I've read. However, it doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy the book. I love M. Leighton's work. Just this one book was missing that element.
