My rating: ❤❤ of 5!
How the mighty have fallen!
After reading the first book I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next bad boy, and whilst it was great I didn’t love it as much as the first one. Unfortunately, I think that’s because of young Darcy who I adored in the first book, but now she seems a bit too immature and stubborn for my liking. There’s nothing wrong with a headstrong FMC, however, a downright dumb and emotional one is another story!
Darcy can’t let the thought go that they need to go get her aunt and protect her, and no amount of valid points from her group of men can convince her that it’s best to leave her aunt alone (hello, the aunt was just fine in the first book, and bringing more attention to her while an insane FBI agent is keeping tabs on her can’t seem like a good, or even reasonable idea to anyone). However, Darcy marches to the beat of her own drums and it’s a futile attempt from anyone to not just give in straight away. So off they go, and they get a hold of the aunt. However, again I feel there’s a problem with the plot because as cautious as these guys are it never occurs to anyone to check if the aunt is bringing any trackable device into their hiding place. Darcy who claims she’s so concerned for her aunt also shows serious flaws in her judgement when she chooses to have some sexy times with one of the guys, instead of taking care and looking after the same aunt she was so desperate to go get.
I love Marissa Farrar’s writing, her style is amazing and really unique, but in this book I developed a strong dislike for our darling FMC, which I hope will improve in the next book.
