Gwen Stevens had a privileged life until her father spoke three little words that turned her world upside down. “You’re cut off.”
Broke and desperate, Gwen is forced to accept a waitressing job, but this glimmer of hope has a price. As if being a cocktail waitress isn’t bad enough, she has to do it in a dive bar called The Den, and her bad luck doesn’t stop there. She also needs to deal with the new owner, a blue-eyed, self-righteous ass determined to make her life miserable.
Liam Sinclair walked away from the entitlement and obligation his family planned for him, vowing to make his own way in the world…
Adjusting to life as a new business owner, Liam has experienced more than his fair share of setbacks. When his only waitress breaks her leg, his sister takes it upon herself to hire a replacement—a spoiled, self-indulgent hothead with too much makeup and more than enough attitude. Gwen represents the world he’s trying to escape, a world of excess and greed that he was never cut out for.
Appearances can be deceiving, and first impressions aren’t always right…
Despite their apparent differences, the tension between them turns to a fiery passion that neither of them can resist. Together they find balance and learn to appreciate the simpler things in life. But Gwen soon discovers that old habits die hard, and one mistake is all it takes to ruin everything.
Forgiveness must be earned, but even a villain deserves a chance at redemption…
Even though this is a stand alone series I would recommend reading the first two books first because we see Liam and Gwen in them. I’m must say I really disliked her character when I did see her in the previous books. Of course I was skeptical coming into this one. Gwen was one of those characters that I wanted to throat punch. I wasn’t sure if Gwen’s character could find redemption. I am so glad that put my big girl panties on and dove in. I loved seeing how Gwen was forced to go out into the world and become an adult after her father cut her off.
I really appreciated the time and length the author goes throw to show readers that Gwen can and will redeem herself. She’s at the lowest part of her life but she also knows she needs to step up. Getting offered a job at The Den is her start.
Liam was the perfect character to tame Princess Gwen. He’s had a rough time with his parents and instead of following their dreams he goes for his own and walks away from the money. I loved everything about Liam. From his big heart to his overall good nature he was just awesome. He was a character that had heart and went after what he wants despite what others say and do.
The chemistry and banter between the character was intense and engaging. I loved the pull they had as well as how they both saw beyond what others saw. I have to say I was really glad that we finally got to see this story unfold. It was a journey for both characters and both found that they wanted redemption. Of course this would not be part of the Madison Square series without the added angst and drama.
This story is well written and completely pulled me and held my focus. It flowed easily and never faltered from their journey. I love this author’s writing style. Take a chance on this journey, it’s worth the ups and downs.
Samatha “Sam” Harris lives near Baltimore, Maryland with her husband David and daughter Ava. Born in Florida, she migrated north which most people agree was a little backwards. She has been an artist all of her life, a Tattoo Artist for more than ten years, and a storyteller since she was a kid.
Sam has a slightly unhealthy love for Frank Sinatra, classic movies, and Jazz and Blues music, but her first love will always be reading. From Romance, to Thrillers, to Historical Fiction and everything in between, she loves to become a part of the story. As a writer she tells the stories that she would want to read.
