As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette “Toni” Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. Now they’re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop.
Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother’s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she’d come to see as family, she walked away—straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship.
For the past decade she’s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic—he’s her friend, her colleague, and he’s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer.
She’s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she’s wondering whether the real mistake was running away.
2 out of 5 stars
I seem to be in the minority here but I just couldn't get into this one. I thought the two MCs relationship felt really forced. I didn't feel any sort of chemistry or real emotion between either of them. I was hoping once he moved in with her there would be some cute moments with them together or we would see them falling for each other but it never really happened. I didn't really care for many of the other characters either: Toni cried for almost the entire book, Lucky constantly acted like a kicked puppy, and May drove me insane. I don't remember May being quite so annoying in her book. I was originally really looking forward to Toni's story because she seemed like a bad ass in the previous book, but in this one she was just a bitch to everyone and then cried about everything. I understand she was pregnant and supposed to be emotional but I think it was overdone.
