This is a first I have read about Marie York and have to say it pulled me in right away. I loved no matter how low we are in life there is someone there out for us. The attraction between Kenzie and Bronx was hot like no matter how long they denied the attraction the explosion between them is hotter than ever. One thing about this book is that it never faltered like it kept its pace which is one of things I love in a book. Have to say for this being the first book I read from Marie York it will not be the last. Her characters are not just characters but people who have sacrificed things to have a better life and the hope of never giving up. Loved it.
