Author: Sherilee Gray
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 26, 2016
When Hugh Colton’s father ran off, leaving him with a pile of gambling debts and a crime boss demanding repayment in stolen cars, his options were limited. Now his life’s on hold, and the last thing he needs to be worrying about is a distressed redhead in a Poison Ivy costume. He sure as hell shouldn’t be rescuing her in the car he’s just boosted—or asking her to come home with him. But a thief like him can’t offer more, no matter how much he wants to.
Everyone either leaves or is taken away, at least that’s all graphics designer Shay Freestone has ever known. And after a confidence shattering, career destroying break-up, she’s sworn off relationships forever. So it’s a good thing this raw, bearded, mountain of a man isn’t her type. Yet as one reckless hot night leads to another, their casual, no-strings affair starts to feel like so much more.
Can two hearts with too many secrets dare for a future?

So this story took me way longer then what I wanted it to. The blurb sounded really amazing then I get reading it and I'm kinda like what the hell. The story line did keep me interested from start to finish it was everything else in between that didn't make sense. The POV was really weird and hard to follow, the way it kept switching back and forth didn't really know who you were reading from. I liked the characters from the start they were both strong, fun loving and caring. Hugh is this huge alpha man that tries to keep everyone safe even if it's hurting the one he doesn't mean to. Shay this girl that had everything, that went sunny side up on her makes the most out of everything. She's caring, strong, stubborn and a big heart on her sleeve. As the stories goes on you get to know the characters more and more. Just something about this story rubbed me the wrong way and I couldn't get into it, Not one to just not finish a story good or bad I really had to pull my big girl panties up and continue on. Which in my case just made the story that much more worse, I started to not like the characters they both started to seem weak, Shay became this needy woman and Hugh became this big time jerk no matter what he did. Anyways I don't want to give any spoilers out for those that do want to read this story. I just didn't care for it much at all, 3 stars was given due to that face that it was hard to follow with the POV, I lost interest more then half way through it, and the story just kept dragging on and on. This was just not a story for me at all. It's almost a love/hate feel to it loved some parts and hated the rest. I know hate is a strong word I disliked a lot of this story.
