I’ve been in love with Rian Walsh for as long as I can remember. He has held many titles over the years. He’s my brother’s best friend. One of the Bastards of Grove Hill—part of the Five Families.
He’s also responsible for every single time my heart has been broken.
I’m the good girl of our bunch of miscreants. I get good grades and I do what I’m told.
I only ever buck up to Rian and it’s a toxic cycle I crave. I love him and I hate him at the same time. I need the push and pull like a drug, but when the push and pull become one entity, how can I be expected to walk away from the one thing I’ve always wanted?
Him. It’s always been him.

4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
This is a new to me author and damn I absolutely fell in love with her depraved and dark writing.
Although I didn't read the first two books I will eventually find the time to get back to Finn's story but for now I want to say that Rian certainly had my ovaries in overdrive. He had claimed Sorcha since she was a child because they've all been friends since they were children. But for some reason she's forbidden to Rian and if Finn were to find out that Sorcha and Rian have feelings or each other and end up acting on their feelings then there could be repercussions.
But Rian is at the point where he just doesn't care anymore. To hell with what people think and Finn is too busy with his girl to even care what Sorcha is up to these days. Rian watches Sorcha like a hawk and nothing gets by him without him noticing. But hot damn their sex scenes are downright sexy. I love how rough he can be and Sorcha loves how he treats her too, she gets off on it.
The chemistry between them is off the charts and I can't wait to see where their romance will lead in the next book!
