Damien: I am Damien Cole. Manager of Dallas' Top
Tattoo Shop "The Boneyard." I play the game by my own set of rules. I
discard women left and right. Their only purpose is to cater to my sexual
appetite. No woman will ever tame my bad boy ways. I am at the top of my game.
Summer: I am Summer Montgomery. My face has graced magazine covers all across
the world. My looks will deceive you. I am a bad girl with a smart ass mouth
and the attitude to back it up. Playing with me is like playing with fire. I
will consume you and swallow you whole. When faced with temptation, which of
these two badasses will fall first?
Usually, I gravitate towards the heroine of the
story and feel all her emotions, frustrations, etc. Unfortunately, Summer fell
short for me. She was so stubborn and so selfish, that I got annoyed with her. I
guess that is testament to the author’s writing that she wanted me to see
Summer as a dramatic and selfish person. She did a great job on that.
Damien, on the other hand, hit all the right
buttons. Sexy and tattooed, sign me up. Maybe its just me and I have a thing
for the wounded bird, but I felt really disappointed that Summer didn't fight
more for Damien. Don't get me wrong. Damien is messed up and was not by any
means perfect, but he had a lot to work through before he could bare his soul
When I got to about 60% in, I started to enjoy
the story more, but there was still this niggling feeling about Summer. Her
views were unrealistic and she tried to be a hard ass so much that it pushed
Damien and almost her mother away. Summer's mother is a Saint BTW. Just saying.
The overall chemistry and sex was hot. There was
definitely a fire between Summer and Damien, but want too much game playing. It
was exhausting. I did have some confusion on names here and there, since I
think they changed a couple times in the story, but overall, it was a good
story line. Just fell a little flat for me.
