Brandon Wilson is trouble.
As leader of the largest car theft ring in Atlanta, GA, life is coming at him faster than he can handle. While the criminal world views him at the top of his game, the truth is, he’s breaking apart, piece by piece. He’s not sure how much more he can take before he completely shatters.
He’s able to manage this facade until he meets Claire Peters. As a part of a kidnapping scheme gone bad, she’s literally delivered right to his warehouse door. As his love for her grows, Brandon finds himself caught in an impossible dilemma. With his lifestyle, he knows he can’t keep Claire, and yet, he can’t risk letting her go, either. His men think he should make her disappear forever, but she’s his angel who still believes in second chances.
Can someone be so lost they’re beyond saving? And if salvation is possible, how does Claire show him the way?
Can a thief be redeemed?
My Review: This book was pretty good. I wasn't very sure what to expect but Brandon really is a criminal. Not watered down, he just is. Then Claire is just so sweet, but she's witty, you know? She has spunk, so she's not like defenseless and under Brandon's paw, no. I loved their banter and their chemistry, they just fit somehow. The dynamic between them was fantastic and the story has very unexpected turn of events that at a first impression left me doubting but they just fit with them. The circumstances, the scene. Very well thought out and interesting.
