Synopsis
Everyone needs a hero.

That’s what Detective Molly Masters tells me. “What we need,” she says, “what the whole world needs,” she pleads, “is a champion.”

The only thing I want to talk about with Molly Masters is how I’d like to make her scream my name when I push her up against a wall, slide my hand up her thigh, and live out my wildest fantasies.

“Someone who will fight against injustice,” she says.

I’ll fight against anything you want, honey. Just come a little closer.

“Someone who will stand tall in the face of adversity,” she says.

I’ll do it standing, sitting, or lying down. See how easy I am?

“Someone who believes in the value of a good deed,” she says.

I believe in the value of me, sweetheart. Because I’m Lincoln Wade. Jaded genius, obscenely wealthy, capable of violence, and looking for revenge.

Molly Masters might have delusions of grandeur. She might see me as some superman capable of cleaning up the scum, filth, and corruption in Cathedral City.

But I’m not the hero she’s looking for.

I’m the dark alley where all her good intentions hide.

So be careful what you wish for, Molly Masters.

Because you’re about to get it.

Grace Review

Open your mind.  Expect the unexpected.  Because JA Huss just kicked the romance world on its ass!

My first thoughts when I finished: What the fuck did I just read?  Julie’s mind is a crazy place, thankfully!  Never a dull moment.

And beyond those first thoughts, I couldn’t stop thinking about this story because it is so different than any romance book I’ve read before.  Did you see the genre?  That’s not a joke.  This book felt like stepping into a Marvel comic, only with a heavy dose of romance.

The two main characters, Molly Masters aka “gun girl” and Lincoln Wade aka “bike boy”, meet in a random moment on a dirt road.  Or was it random?  Lincoln is not your average guy, far from it indeed.

“Oh my God,” I repeat.  “You’re Batman.”

So she wasn’t quite right.  But he does have a cave.  And gadgets galore.  And a hologram sidekick named Sheila.  Not making this up.

From there, the story gets complex and I don’t want to give it away.  What I can tell you is that Molly represents good, Lincoln represents evil, but they are each fighting for the same thing.  Something that is out of their control.  Something that has guided them for years.

Initially I was a little discouraged by Molly’s abilities as a detective, seemingly clueless as to why a series of suicides were happening at Blue Corp, the business empire in Cathedral City.  Once the facts were revealed, I could understand how no one would suspect what happened.  It truly had that action adventure feel:

  1. A city overrun by criminals.
  2. The mystery man, Lincoln.
  3. Unexplained deaths.
  4. The tower, Blue Corp, and the unlikeable Alastair Montgomery.
  5. The clueless girl who likes making lists.

Hmmm . . .

Although Lincoln knows that Molly could run if she knew the full truth, he can’t seem to resist her.  Their heated moments are spontaneous, like neither is in control, and lust drives them.  And I think this passionate connection overtook Molly, because I felt she was too quick to forgive when learning the truth.  Lincoln pulls some things with her that would take me a lot longer to get over, but he has a purpose.  Ultimately I understood that, especially when I learned the history and reasons for his revenge.

I am mayhem, I am anarchy, and I am found.
But most of all, I am Alpha.

This book is wildly creative.  It’s a story of righting wrongs.  It’s a story of reconnecting with the past and changing the future course.  The author took me out of my comfort zone and into her crazy imagination.  She kept me engaged and desperate for answers.  I fully expected a cliffhanger, but have no fear, there isn’t one.  This story was a fun and unpredictable ride.  I’m hoping we get Case’s story next!

Final note: I loved the drawings throughout the book, from the same artist that created the cover.
