Stacey Espino and Sam Crescent are the definitely the go-to duo for dark romance. I’ve never been disappointed by their offerings and in fact the stories just seem to get better and better. considering how much I loved the first one, that’s no easy feat. Alesha and Xavier are a perfect match. She might come across as a little meek but when it comes to inner strength she can match him without blinking. I loved that while Alesha was a curvy woman it really didn’t play much on her mind. She didn’t dwell on it. I liked how matter of fact she was when she discovered his actually profession. She wasn’t afraid of him one bit and she didn’t come across as naive or stupid for trusting Xavier even though he seemed to think she was for doing so. I loved the emotion in this story and how Xavier so wants to find his sister and how important his past is to him and how it has shaped the man he’s become. There is so much passion and emotion and action in this book and I just couldn’t put it down. If you love your heroines curvy and your favorite heroes have dark sexy edges, this is the sexy story for you!
