Five years ago we lived in the same house. He was the ultimate bad boy. And my foster brother.
Now he’s back. Tougher, harder, meaner. All of it aimed at me, because I was the one who sent him away. It’s payback time. He wants his pound of flesh, and I am helpless to say no.
As much as I love Blue (which is a whole lot!), I didn’t think Better When It Hurts was as good as Love the Way You Lie. Don’t get me wrong, I still liked it but I wasn’t into it as much as the first book.
From the moment I met Blue in Love the Way You Lie I was so intrigued by him. I wanted to know what his story was and how he ended up being the head of security at the stripclub. I was really surprised by how he was connected to Lola but I liked that part of the story. He’s still my favorite guy in this series so far.
I also was curious about Lola’s story but I ended up being really annoyed by her. And the thing is I really liked her in the first book but in this one she was a bit of a let down and just kind of aggravating.
But as much as I disliked Lola, her chemistry with Blue was off the charts. There really were some fireworks going off with the two of them. Needless to say the sex scenes were scorching hot. And I was glad when they finally got through all the BS and just be together.
Also I’m super excited for Candy and Ivan’s book. I’ve been curious about them from book one so bring it on!
