Not too bad...It was a rather intriguing read to say the least.
Darcie is a different cookie...I don't recall ever reading about a character that could beat you down, yet had personal demons and was basically broken underneath. Really cool!
Reggie...now don't we all need a "Reggie" around every now and then. The connection between Darice and Reggie was surreal.
The action is full force, no sweet candy coatings....just raw and opened.....I really enjoyed that! I honestly think bad guys should get what the deserve and Ms. Brannon gave me that in this story :)
It truly shows love know age and quite frankly family can be many things.
Great start to the series!!!!!
