My Review

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review

Scandal, threats, and pirates will keep you on your toes in this one. I loved how it started because it was different and hooked me into the mystery of what was happening. It’s clear that they have always loved each other, but there were reasons they were kept apart for so long. I wasn’t for sure what was going to happen when they found her brother and liked the little twist there with the girl. I did really love the ending and the scene with Tommy.

Ivy will do anything to save her brother but jumps before thinking at times. I didn’t really start to like her until over halfway through when she stopped running and started thinking about things first. I did like that she didn’t shrink away in battle.

Marcus has loved her for so long and will do anything to keep her safe. I loved him from the start because he kept his word and didn’t beat around the bush when it comes to anything. I loved what he did in the end with Tommy.
