I gave this book are 4.2. This is the second book in the series, but my first by the author. The book is about the middle Malcom brother Cross and his neighbors niece Isabella. Let me start by saying, the overall the storyline was decent. Cross and Isabella have only seen each other from a distance, but from the first time their eyes meet, there is a connection. Cross is drawn to Isabella but she remains a mystery. Unfortunately when he finally get close enough to have her in his arms, the circumstances are not ideal. Cross becomes instantly protective of Isabella and knows she is the one for him. Isabella finally feels safe and has a place she can call home.
I feel this story has so much potential. There are many steamy scenes, but they could have been cut short in order to put more into the main storyline. I wanted to know what drives Cross, or what made Isabella want to stay strong? Or how did her uncle get away with so much far so long? Oh and where was the romance? There were several underlying things, that if expanded on, would have made the book five stars.
This book has insta-love and an HEA. It's a good quick read.
I am Cross Malcolm.
And I get. What’s. Mine.
Cattle are simple.
You take care of them; they take care of you.
Women, not so much.
They’re fickle, stubborn and emotional.
They’re time consuming and unapologetic.
And yet, I can’t live without her.
She’s passion and sin.
Heartache and innocence.
Isabella Sharp is every man’s weakness.
She’ll bring me to my knees.
And in return I’ll worship her with my dying breath.
I am Cross Malcolm
After the secrets and through the lies…
Past the darkness and into the light…
I get what’s mine.
