The heroine(s): Delia (a.k.a. Dale, a.k.a. Doily) – she grew up as a tomboy with nine brothers. Her mother died when she was young. Her father was a drinker and a gambler that was murdered behind a bar when she was in high school. Dale was the only one in her family who went to college. She comes home for the holidays and is roped into working for and with her brothers as a bounty hunter.
The Hero: Jax – Dale’s ex-boyfriend who is trying to evade the bounty hunters. Jax needs to win an underground fight in order to help his sister.
The Story: Jax is the one ex-boyfriend Dale had hoped never to see again, she had to quit him because he always got her into trouble. He left for New York to be a model last she heard and she had no clue why he was back in town. But she knows where he will be and how to get him.
I liked this story, Dale is still extremely attracted to Jax which makes her question her judgement when it comes to him. Jax has good reasons for why he got in trouble with the law and why he jumped bail, but Dale still wants to be the one to bring him in, so they make a deal, but Dale knows she has to harden her heart to him if she wants to get back to her life and go back to college after this is all over.
The story was told from Dale’s POV and Erin Mallon did the narration. She does a great job and narrates quite a few romance books. I enjoy her voice and this was a quick and easy listen. Dale was smart and devious and very likable. I would have liked to read books with some of these other characters from this book, but I looked at Tijan’s other books and it looks like she didn’t write more about this crowd. I would have loved to read more about Dale’s brothers and also about Jax’s sister and Monroe.
