I felt as though this could have had a prologue with the FMC Libby and her sister to help with the backstory and cement her relationship with her family. As an outcast from her family which just happens to be a rival family to Brogan’s, the book captures their stories falling in love and trying to protect those they care for. They accused the organization of meddling in their respective countries on behalf of western powers. Theirs comes with a motorcycle gang hit, a secret underground network worth dying to protect, and an obsession to protect one another from their separate worlds.
So many things that I enjoyed about the first book carry over into this one - a great writing style, just the right amount of violence and blood, a good amount of spice, and my favorite thing from the first book: a strong bond between the female characters. This book alluded to a death very similar to Finn’s, in the first, which makes me question, is the author going to continue to kill of someone just to make the readers sad? Brogan is taking back by Libby’s strength and beauty but he’s a bit damaged and not sure if he open his heart again but she has this pull on him and he is all to eager to fill her up. The only child of a film producer and his starlet wife, she’s grown up with wealth and privilege but not love or guidance. He’s determined to bring her back into the world she left behind where money is king, reputation is everything, and people will kill to keep their secrets.I’m sure if I hadn’t spilled beer all over him and gave a subtle suggestion of where he could shove his best friend’s dick, perhaps we would have started out on a better note.
I loved Libby and Brogan from the first moment I met each of them, but them together couldn’t have been more perfect.Our first meeting was at a nightclub, and it was something straight out of my most romantic fantasies.

Realize that a lot of the stuff that you know about your body is either not true or is so deeply ingrained that it has taken a lifetime for you to learn those things.
I can’t remember anymore if my grandfather’s eyes were blue or green, but I’ll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes.
First it kept my interest from the start but I enjoyed the first story much I just knew I was going like this one. As Meaghan shares, “If we can suspend reality, for dragons, and, you know, a fae and mafia people who don’t get arrested, then surely, we can also put in a plus sized character who’s not constantly obsessing about their weight. Is it how he has to lift my chin with his fingers to keep my eyes level with his when he scolds me and how I cover my bottom instinctively when he tells me that I've earned a spanking? Avery Moore broke up with her high school sweetheart and transferred colleges to be closer to her brother and best friend.
Once is a good plot twist but after that it’s no longer creative or surprising so Finn’s death felt like a cheap plot twist. By the time an agathos woman reaches twenty-five, she's supposed to be one thing, and one thing only: Bonded. But then he comes to me with an offer I can’t refuse—a publicist job at the most prestigious public relations firm in Chicago. I always knew darkness crept through this city; like a shadow, it never really goes away, always watching, always waiting.
