My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy reading them - kat***
So fair warning by the end of this book you will be craving more of Tommy ‘Havoc’ Kendrick and our Enigma Nikita, I say enigma because she has lots of layers, she is a closed book but somehow Tommy is like a match to her fire *HOT AND VOYEURISTIC scenes! this book is Dark, hot and twisted!
Nikita may be a shrink but she sure isn't shy when it comes to Tommy, and hopefully, more will be revealed of what brought both Tommy and Nikita to the people they are today in part 2
Tommy is a bad boy, as the blurb says:
A rap sheet reads like a recipe for disaster: one part mayhem to three parts chaos. There’s no arguing the matter; he’s a bad guy, or at least he used to be. For the past five years, Tommy’s been on the straight and narrow, keeping his head down and staying out of trouble. He left the French Quarter behind, along with the New Orleans crime syndicates and underground fights that used to pay his bills. Trading in the high-octane thrill of earning money with his fists to work in an auto mechanic’s was hard, and yet somehow, despite everything, he’s made it work.
Tommy hadn’t planned on seeing his brother again. When David Kendrick turns up on his doorstep with a bag full of money and four broken ribs, Tommy finds himself heading back to the place he swore he’d never return. Back to the fights. Back to the drinking, the drugs, and the women.
Back to a life he thought he’d left behind for good.
Nikita Moreau has lived in New Orleans all her life. She learned to drive there, lost her virginity there, bought her first house there, and she’s damned if she isn’t going to die there, too. As a prison psychologist at one of the country’s most dangerous facilities, she runs the risk of dying in the state of Louisiana on a daily basis, and yet she wouldn’t give it up for the world. There’s nothing more satisfying than helping those everyone else has given up on. Nothing more rewarding than fixing something everyone said was broken.
The day she meets Tommy Kendrick, however, she learns a painful lesson: sometimes a person is too broken to be fixed. Sometimes a person is beyond reach and cannot be saved. The tall, dark and handsome, tattoo-covered devil is danger personified. She knows this. She knows he’s bad news. So then why can’t she stop thinking about him? Why can’t she stay away from him?
And, most importantly, why won’t she save herself?
mmm.... well there you go!
What did I think of it, well I started reading and didn't stop till I got to the dreaded words The end of part one!
It was like being inside my favourite New Orleans TV show - The Originals, without the Vampires lol, not that I am saying that it's like that, but the characters come across as bad, mad and ever so addictive.
I couldn't tell who wrote what and the book read smoothly, you will be left with questions, is Genevive really in love with Alex Bastien, will Tommy and Nikita survive, Nikita is a tough cookie, but she has a past with the No 1 psycho of New Orleans crime boss Alex Bastien, then theres his crazy twin brothers! oh there are lots of interesting characters
I just hope part two is a lot longer ;)
