When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing.
Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.
An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.
With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.
So here we are, Book 3 of the Bad Boys. And wow…What a freakin’ story. Now we follow Nash and Marissa. And finish the rest of the crazy that’s been going on. And OMG, shit goes down…
In the first two books we all fell in love with Cash. How can you not??? The way he loves Olivia, and how he protects her. But NOW, we have Nash; all dark and mysterious. And Marissa. I love Marissa in this book. As a person she has completely evolved. I kinda wanted to just punch her in the face in the last book. What a stuck up snob. And the way she treated Olivia. She deserved what she got. Okay, NO she didn’t! LOL How mean of me to say. But she learned her lesson that’s for sure. Got a dose of reality. And then some…..
Now she’s been rescued and is left with the reality of the REAL Nash. A Nash she knows nothing about (or so she thinks). A Nash that is NOT quite so inviting, a Nash that is so closed off, and sad and just down right cold. And she is so torn. Marissa has never reacted to a man this way. Not even Cash.
Nash is no good for Marissa and he warns her.
You’ll probably get hurt.
Then you can’t say I didn’t warn you.
But sometimes you can’t stop fate from stepping in and taking over. Even though Nash is warning her off, he wants her. Thinking it can only just be something physical. Yeah right!!!!
This distraction is good for Marissa. She is so sick of her old life, with her rich friends. She’s trying to change and show everyone she is not so shallow, so yeah, why not indulge in some Nash and lose herself.
“I can make you forget everything else. I can make sure that you feel nothing but pleasure, that you can’t think past what I’m doing to your body.” ` Nash
Oh Nash that’s so fucking HOT, but dude, it’s not that easy. You’re playing with her heart and mind. And yes, you did play with her once… a long time before. WOW, and that totally blew my mind. New Orleans….WOW!!!!!!!!!! My mouth dropped…How could he???
“I’m done. This is too much for me. You warned me and I didn’t listen. That’s my own fault. The only thing I can do now is keep from making the same mistake again.” – Marissa
OMG that crushed me….It crushed Marissa, and yep, it crushed Nash. That fucker has feeling for Marissa. He loves her. But he doesn’t think he’s worthy of her. He’s a criminal, and being with her would ruin her career. Best to stay away…and leave…sail away…
Insert heart wrenching pain in my chest. Seriously, this was just hurtful. I cried for her, I couldn’t help myself.
And in between all of this, Nash and Cash are trying to get their plans together to take down those bastards that ruined their lives, killed their mother, and put their father behind bars. And Marissa plays a huge part in helping them. And what does Marissa get out of all of this, a heart broken. In all honestly, so does Nash.
“We just didn’t have enough time. And now we never will. I just thought…I had hoped…” ~ Marissa
Yeah Marissa, we all thought…we all hoped. She’s killing me. I feel for her. WHY did you leave her Nash, you freakin coward! Alright, in Nash’s defense he’s a shell of a man. He doesn’t think he is any good for her. The last 7 years of his life he has spent on a barge, secluded from any normal people, indulging in a criminal lifestyle that he never wanted. He had a life at home, he was smart, had dreams. And they were taken away.
This book had me on a roller coaster the whole time with Nash and Cash and their mission to bring down the Russian’s, and the love that Nash and Marissa are waiting to explore.
In the end, I knew Nash would come through, because his love for Marissa is there and stronger than he thought.
“I’ve sailed all over the world trying to get away from you, trying to get away from what you make me feel. All I’ve found is that there’s no ocean big enough to drown out thoughts of you, no place far enough to escape your pull. You find me. You always find me. When I was lost at sea, you found me. When I was lost in life, you found me. You found me and you saved me.” ~ Nash
About the Author
I was born and raised in the United States, and I’ve lived in several of the fabulous fifty. Though I currently live in the deep South, I spent much of my childhood up North and hope to return there one day. A few other things about me: I believe that sometimes you have to look really, REALLY hard to find the good in people, but it’s there. I believe that I’m shrinking (I swear five years ago I was two inches taller). I believe my husband is quite possibly one of the most amazing men in the entire world (I can’t be sure because I haven’t met all of them). I believe coffee and chocolate, when combined, could be the basis for world peace. I believe that Jesus rocks and communism doesn’t. I believe that white makes me look fat and black collects lint. I believe summer’s too hot, winter’s too cold and fall was made for football. I like dogs better than cats and the first movie in a trilogy is invariably the best. But most of all, I believe that love conquers all
