Lucky and Mason have been on fire since the first book in the Four Kings Security series! I knew that anticipation would help make the read even more fantastic and I was right!
Mason and Lucky had a heat between them, both when they fought and when they weren’t. You knew the entire time that the two of them had a much deeper connection than they were letting on, and I enjoyed it. They were both incredibly romantic, and I love how patient they were, particularly Lucky since he had so much distrust inside him.
Again, as though with the previous books, I wasn’t really impressed with the plot. Mason’s big secret wasn’t so awful… I mean, it was awful for him, traumatic, but it wasn’t as unforgivable as it was made out to believe. (Which, I guess it makes sense. We all tend to blow up our own issues and feel like they’re more heinous.) I was glad that Lucky reacted how he did. His reactions were appropriate, far more reasonable than I expected. I really like Lucky.
Other than the romance, the story itself was anticlimactic. That seems to continuously be the hangup in this series for me. Hopefully King’s book changes that. I keep hoping one of the books pushes up to the next level.
However, it does make me MORE excited for the next THIRDS book! Because, I still love Charlie Cochet’s writing and romance!
