I had a past. It was dark. It was ugly— it was my dirty secret.
No one knew the weight of the burdens that nearly consumed me.
I lived with a singular focus—seeking revenge on my father.
Then the new girl, Jolee Ward, moved into the apartment above me and shattered my carefully constructed world.
We were like oil and water. . . until we weren’t.
Then we detonated like gasoline and fire, but the inferno threatened to destroy us both.
One night with her couldn’t erase years spent plotting.
Wellington University wasn’t big enough for the both of us.
3.5 Heart Review by Lorena
Jolee and Ford might have started off on the wrong foot but they immediately felt that zing when they bumped into each other on the stairwell. And even though Ford had issues and he wanted to deal with them himself, it was starting to burden him but he didn't want to include his family on any of the familial drama he was dealing with at the time.
Jolee was a good girl who had her head on straight and she had goals that she wanted to accomplish. She might come from an unloving home but that didn't make her the same. On the contrary, Jolee had a heart and she wasn't afraid to open it up to the right guy and she felt like Ford was the right guy even though they constantly bickered. But their bickering soon would turn into hot sex that would leave them both satisfied for the meantime.
Ford was starting to have feelings for Jolee but he was scared to get her involved in his dangerous life. He didn't know what his sperm donor was capable of doing to her and he didn't want to expose her to that. But sometimes love is stronger and it will strengthen you if you only allow it to.
I loved the premise and the storyline of the book, but somehow I still felt like it was lacking a little in the romance part between Jolee and Ford. I think their connection could have been stronger.
I still liked the book and can't wait to keep reading about the rest of the Rogues.
