REVIEWED BY Tina Shobe
This book is part of the House of Pain Series. Prior to reading this book I have not read any of the other books in the series and I had no problem following along in this book. It definitely can be a stand alone.
This book captured my interest right from the start. In fact I read it straight through. I just didn’t want to put it down. It was well worth the missed sleep.
Ezekiel Steele (prefers to be called Steele) works from a security company that is ahead of the House’s security.
Essie Santiago, who is Twist’s sister (he works in the house) and moved back to town believing she had a job with the house. She is now involved in a contest that the winner gets a job with the company.
Both Steele and Essie have scars from their past. He being wounded in action during his time in the military and Essie from having survived a severe trauma in her teens.
The author did a great job pulling you into the story. I was crying at parts, especially when Essie was reliving her trauma.
I think he knew how to get Essie to excel due his own experiences. He has her back 100%! We all need men like him!
This is the first book I have read by this author. She now has a new follower and I will be going back and reading the rest of this series.
