This book was different. It took a little while to really get into X and Lucy’s story however I am glad I read it. I really loved the idea and plot of this story even though the plot was a little extreme. This story is new and refreshing which made it for an enjoyable read.
The banter in this book was hilarious.
Thanks to Lucy, the mischievous and highly complex Lucy. She brings her bubbly personality tinged with love and criminal actions which really brought her character to life. Reading the first bed scene… I died. She was hilarious and always brought a smile to my face.
“…no one knew I collected each other those damn tea cups myself, to give the appearance that I had someone who loved me enough to give me something they loved. To tell a story as fake as the one about my appendectomy scar.”
X is troubled, you see that from the very start with his quiet demeaner through Lucy’s eyes. He deals with a lot of anxiety due to his mother who has guilted him into his ways and he is lost. He is really isolated before he meets Lucy. But she changes things. He is someone she needs to pay a debt and really forces her way into his life from the beginning. Her cunning ways are what bring them together and give them their HEA. I loved their first encounters and the story picks up from there.
“I know that without him. I wouldn’t be here.”
Their story is a crazy, sweet and a hilarious one. I did enjoy this book. I hope people take their time to read it. It’s a story of a ‘reformed’ criminal and anxiety ridden heir who meet in the craziest of places only to find love.
