This book was much longer and layered than the last. There was a lot of sex which I kind of skimmed and I loved the romance. Romeo is the rival of her friend Clay but they spend one awesome night together and after that exchange texts and video chat. I love how strong Jules, lawyer, multitasker, Deputy, almost Olympian became Juliet for Romeo. She is no longer one from the Conner family, known for their bad heartbreaks. Jules has never fallen for anyone, unlike her brother Wyatt the Sheriff who is still not over Tabitha, who left. I loved how Romeo and Juliet fall for each other. They sneak around when Clay trains Romeo.
Romeo was a guy not afraid of showing his emotions who was dealt a crappy card. He had spent two years in prison, which left his two brothers under the control of their mob father(not his father) and by the time he got out both his brothers were changed irrevocably, soldiers for the mob. His brother Nova the genius was the reason that their father took an interest in them. Their mother was his girlfriend on the side and when after her death Romeo refused contact, he had Romeo assaulted by dirty cops which led him to prison. Poor Nova, could see no way out of that life, his own father setting up Romeo. In the end Tino and Romeo got out but not him, all for brotherly love. You could not help but alternately dislike and like the two poor brothers who never had a chance once their dad got his clutches on them.
Wyatt having had only Jules for so long, wanting her protected. The book has a lot of action, shooting and a hell lot of build-up done for other books in the series. I am so waiting for Wyatt's book because as of right now Tabitha does sound like a bitch.
Overall a lovely romance!!
