Most people think riot squad officer Taylor Jameson is an asshole. Little do they know his apparent indifference stems from having a meddlesome family always butting into his business. And little does Taylor know he’s about to stumble into a situation that’ll make indifference impossible.
When everything goes horribly wrong at a political rally on a harbour ferry, Taylor encounters Sietta Salisbury. The son of a wealthy politician, Sietta is a revered—but presumed dead—musician, and an enigma who is so strange, Taylor is compelled to look into his background. What he discovers draws him into a bizarre mess of prisoners, politics, and attempted murder that makes him realise what he’s been missing.
Falling in love isn’t hard. Trying to convince someone else you’re worth loving despite your crazy family and the people trying to kill you? That’s a whole other can of worms.
If you are looking for a book that has a serious subject matter to it but will also leave you in tears from laughing so much, well look no futher because this is definitely the book to do that and more.
Lindsey Black definitely proved that she is an author that can take a serious subject and get her point across on the seriousness of the situation but at the same time make the read a light hearted read in other areas of the book. This book definitely proved that there was an equal balance between the two which made it even better in my opinion because you never knew what was going to happen next.
Taylor may be an a$$hole of epic proportions but he has a huge heart when it comes to his family and those that he cares about. He takes his job on the riot squad very seriously just as his twin brother Clay does. These two men may be identical twins but personality wise the are completely different but at the same time equal each other out.
When Taylor met Sietta he knew there was something special about him. He could not put his finger on it but he was definitely intrigued by him. Taylor was not sure that he would ever get the opportunity to get to know him better but he knew he wanted too and he also knew that something was not right where Sietta’s home life was concerned. In fact Clay felt the same way and that is how they ended up investigating Sietta to try and put heir finger on what was wrong. This is where everything got more complicated and lives started to be put in danger.
Taylor starts to question what the real motives are behind the attempts on Sietta’s life and at the same time finds himself falling for the man hard and fast.
Can Taylor figure out what is going on in time or will someone not be able to walk away in the end.
Like I said this read was equally serious but at the same time equally funny. Taylor and Clays family really is crazy and as you get to know each of them, you will find yourself laughing at the goings on within the family more then not. They truly made this read that much more enjoyable and I think that without the families presents in this book it would not have been as amazing of a read as it was. I look forward to more of Lindsey Black’s books in the future.
