I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Sometimes love isnÔÇÖt enoughÔÇª Sometimes youÔÇÖre required to be beautifully loyal.
If you think you know herÔÇª YouÔÇÖre wrong. If you think you know her familyÔÇª Wrong again. If you think you know her storyÔÇª You donÔÇÖt.
Ashlynn Adorite is no stranger to the cruel and unusual world she was born into. In fact, she accepts it, understands it, embraces it. However, in her world, falling in love isnÔÇÖt simply a choice. It causes problems, changes lives, disrupts business.
Sex, pleasure, carnal desires ... those things Ashlynn understands. Love ... not so much. Her world is turned upside down when she starts to feel something for not just one man, but two. The question is, can she have all that she desires, or will loyalty to her family interfere.
Two hot guys?┬á Check.┬á One lucky lady who can take them on?┬á Check.┬á Add in some voyeurism and exhibitionist tendencies, and well, you have a story that sizzles from page one.┬á Nicole Edwards does a wonderful job crafting a plot which is captivating, flowing, and understandable.
While the synopsis of the book speaks to Ashlynn, IÔÇÖm going to say this is more LeytonÔÇÖs story combined with Ashlynn and a touch of Jase.┬á We first met Leyton in Beautifully Brutual.┬á The groundwork was laid for us to understand the sense of family between Max and Leyton; a brotherhood of choice.┬á You are loyal to family, even to a fault.┬á Leyton is now the underboss in the family, which means he is brought even closer to the bossÔÇÖ sister, Ashlynn AdoriteÔÇªand her bodyguard Jase.┬á ThereÔÇÖs an undeniable attraction between Ashlynn and Leyton, but itÔÇÖs forbidden by the boss.┬á Ashlynn has to have her needs met, and thatÔÇÖs where Jase has played a starring role for the past five years.
Leyton was much more complex than I expectedÔÇªdelightfully so.┬á He was hot, he was alpha, and he was tender.┬á The fire between Leyton and Ashlynn and Leyton and JaseÔÇªwhew.┬á Just the pairing of two-thirds of the trio was simply steamyÔÇªadd in the third and panties will begin to melt.┬á I appreciate that each of the sex scenes were unique and well placed within the story, rather than random, gratuitous sex.┬á┬á In order to fully grasp LeytonÔÇÖs loyalties and the extent to which he will sacrifice himself for his family, you should read Beautifully Brutal, as well.
The writing was easy to digest, and compelled me to go a little one-click crazy so I could pick up the Sniper Security books (all characters you get to meet in Beautifully Brutal and Beautifully Loyal).┬á This books gets a solid 4.5 stars.┬á I think my kindle is still steaming from the writing and sexual antics of these three!
