After having read the entire A Perfect Secret Series in one fell swoop, I have to say that I have come to love this trio of Hellraisers and their beautiful women. Booker, Boone and Braxton each have a place in my heart, and for different reasons, but I will admit that Brax is probably my favorite Outlaw, so I was extremely excited that he got his own story and with River Pearl no less.
As with the rest of the books in this series, this one was filled with heartache, turmoil and plenty of sexual chemistry and passion. But, even with the serious undertones of this story, where the Outlaw brothers went, there were sure to be shenanigans. I don't think I'll ever look at a french fry the same way again. LOL.
River Pearl hasn't been one of my favorite characters, but once I got to really know her I think she is just hands down awesome. Not at all the spoilt little rich girl with her nose in the air that I had taken her for. Yes, she did expect a certain level of class but deep down she was just a simple girl wanting to be treated like anyone else. I hated that her life had basically been laid out for her and that she hadn't had much say in which path to choose, so her blossoming relationship with Brax was the perfect thing to shake things up.
With it, though, came a past of hurt and despair and I was thankful that, once and for all, the truth was revealed and maybe, just maybe, the Outlaws would be welcomed into a community they were so actively involved in. With plenty of skeletons jumping out of the closet, this was a fantastic read that kept me enthralled the entire way through. From the fiery passion that ignited whenever Brax and River were together, to the mystery about Duel Outlaws involvement in a crime that would span decades, I loved every second of this story.

OMG! I love Boone, in fact I love all the Outlaw siblings, and I was so excited to read Boone's story. It was obvious from the first book that something must have happened for Verity to be so angry with him and I was intrigued to find out what. And, boy, was I surprised when the real secrets of this story unraveled. I had kinda guessed about the whole graduation party situation, but everything that transpired after was a total shocker.
It seems like Hope Parish is filled with a bunch of nutcases who are just waiting to cause chaos, and it was no different in this book. I was on the edge of my seat with excitement and fear but I'm glad things didn't end in tragedy.
Secrets and lies abound in this fantastic sequel to A Perfect Mess. Another rollercoaster ride of emotional ups and downs with plenty of passion. I don't care what the rest of Hope Parish says, I am hooked on the Outlaws and cannot wait for more.
