Book Review: Lawless
I found peace in the last place I expected, but it was a mirage built on lies and unfulfilled promises.
I thought we somehow managed to find a way to co-exist in their little lair, but as usual I was wrong.
The second I felt settled, a corrupt Hawk turns up and flips everything I’ve come to know—and dare to trust— on its head.
Without a choice, I’m dragged out into the night by the man I vowed to obey— Maverick Murray.
Taken away from the protection of the man I loved to hate— Reid Harris.
Torn from the arms of the man who’s been my savior throughout this whole ordeal— Julian Dempsey.
They all had their reasons for needing me alive, but it was JD, the loyal best friend to the ruthless leader who taught me all about playing with fire.
The cocky playboy who likes to think himself a joker.
Just one smile from him and everything seems easier.
One touch and the rest of the world falls away.
The last thing I want to do is hurt him.
But I can’t forget that he’s a part of all this.
JD hurt me, even if it was with pleasure.
I never made a secret of where my loyalties lie.
And I have no choice but to leave him and Reid behind, as I clutch my husband’s hand, trusting that he knows best.
But what’s best for me, is the worst thing for JD. Because without me… his darkness just might pull him under.
Lawless is book three of four in the Harrow Creek Hawks series. It is a dark why-choose romance, meaning our leading lady has several love interests and never has to choose to find her HEA. These three a-hole alphas are certainly no heroes; their morals are questionable at best. If you're looking for a good guy, then you're in the wrong place. Enter at your own discretion.
I will say it again and again, JD is my favorite. In this book I got to know more about his past and it was heartbreaking. His diary entry where he poured his heart out to Alana really gripped me. All I wanted to do was to hug him really tightly.
Reid is Reid but he is making some power moves that could change things for everyone. He showed he really cared with his actions. Mav and Alana's relationship did bloom into the next level. Mav is learning not to treat Alana like a doll but a woman who has needs.
I can't wait to read the final book in this series to see how it all ends. Everyone is going through a lot.
