The Hero(s): Hamilton Beauregard – grew up the bastard son of prominent politician, Jack Beauregard. Hamilton’s older brother, Joseph was a sociopath who liked to hurt Hamilton whenever he could. Hamilton has made it his life’s mission to get revenge on his brother and his father who never did anything to help him.
The heroine: Vera Garner – her mother, Lilah faked a pregnancy and married Joseph. He beat her when he found out and Vera is trying to save her from herself since she still wants to be with Joseph.
The Love Story: Hamilton and Vera met at Lilah and Joseph’s wedding and soon began seeing each other. Hamilton was the black sheep of the family and always did his best to make headlines that were embarrassing for the family. However, with Vera he truly fell for her.
Hamilton is still trying to bring down his brother in this book, he begins working with his father but is wary of Jack’s motives for all of the sudden wanting to bring down his favorite son. Hamilton’s motives are to keep Vera out of the whole mess and keep her safe from both his brother and his father.
I like the give and take in this book and how Hamilton tries to protect Vera, but still he can’t stay away from her. Vera was a bit of a doormat for her mother and for Jack in the first book, but she starts to come into her own in this book and stand up for herself, even with Hamilton.
