Not all heroes are good guys.
With a body count on his soul and blood on his hands, Killian Nox lived in the gray. Ruthlessly single-minded, if he wanted something, it was his. And when it came to the gorgeous lass with a fiery attitude, he didn’t just want her.
He needed her.
With southern-bred manners and a snark all her own, Augusta ‘Gus’ Allan was a connoisseur of cheap wine, delicious Mexican food, and good TV. Unfortunately, her taste in men wasn’t as well-developed. When her knight in shining armor turned out to be a douche in tinfoil, Gus never expected her real hero to be a sexy-accented, tattooed beast of a man.
But he was exactly who she needed.
Gus had no clue how comforting a monster in the dark could be…
I am loving this Kindle Alpha World, where I get to see the Mayson’s all the time (despite the weird time line where July is a baby).
Gus is about to move in (temporarily) with her boyfriend when she discovers he’s cheating. The neighbor across the hall hears all of this commotion and asks Gus to move in to help take care of his dog, Nolan, because he’s going on a business trip for 3 weeks. Having no other options, Gus moves in to help Killian out.
Gus has relocated to Boston from school. She gets a call that her Meema has had a stroke. Killian pays for her to fly back to Tennessee – to see her Meema. And guess who her neighbors are? The Mayson’s!!!
In the meantime, Gus and Killian are developing a relationship over the phone and through text, though Killian knew the minute he saw Gus that he wanted her. Gus doesn’t really know what Killian does – and she’s surprisingly cool with it.
This was a quick read but I loved the characters, especially Meema. I would recommend all these Kindle Alpha books.
