Much better than the first book!
I enjoyed this book much better than the first book. In Absolute Power, though I liked the story, I didn’t really think the Hero, Cash Delacorte was a very nice guy. His actions surprised me and I didn’t understand them. In this book he changes his tune and is a much nicer guy, especially to the heroine, Jagger Jones.
In this book, Cash is generous and even sweet for such a rough guy. He is helpful to Jagger and is totally enamored with her throughout the book. He takes her out, he holds her hand, he wants to protect her and he knows that he really likes her and isn’t at all afraid to show it, even to his friends and others. The previous book did talk about how Jagger’s sister Callie used to date Cash and they were jewelry thieves. Apparently he wasn’t a very good guy at that time and has since changed due to his feelings for Jagger.
One thing I didn’t like was the fact that Jagger goes from Jewelry designer and store owner to Jewel thief and then all the sudden in the middle of the second book she admits that though she likes men, she is attracted to women also. It just seems a bit odd and late in the game to admit to being bisexual. Also I just didn’t want her to be a thief. I guess I like respectable heroines much more than law breakers. Though I don’t mind if the Hero works outside the law.
The supporting characters were good in this book and added to the plot lines. Especially Jagger’s best friend Em and Cash’s best friend and business partner Gage. Gage even dresses Jagger’s chihuahua Lucy in a frilly pink sweater and carries her around at one point. Jagger’s sister Callie even makes a few appearances in this book. The romance between Cash and Jagger was hot but not super steamy. I would give it about 3 flames out of five 🔥🔥🔥. Overall the book was good but not great. Though that may have just been me, since I had trouble getting in to the story.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
