Marshall: I love how the writers thoughts were pouring out. The characters are perfect for this to be a movie.

LittleScribbler: Hi SteveIt was a great start, good build-up of character and word choice, and plenty of intrique. Excellent writing!The sex scene didn't do anything for the story and would have been better left out. It was a strong, well written scene that could go into another book.Your ending was clever, but i...

Val: Histoire rafraîchissante! J'adore l'héroïne même s'il elle m'a un peu énervé par moment. Les protagonistes restent attachant, sans compter les nombreux chapitres qui nous laissent en suspens! Magnifique livre que je recommande!!!👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Hannah: I loved how it just kept getting interesting and it drew me more and more into it and I just I love all of it other than I don't quite understand what she was felling in the beginning when Mase had her and she felt a bee like sting? But other than that I love it
