Good vs Bad.
Light vs Dark.
Right vs Wrong.
There are always two sides to every coin.
Josiah ‘Liner’ Paldecki knew the moment he laid eyes on her that there was something different about her. Something special. Something so unique that it practically poleaxed him the moment that their eyes met.
Except, the next time he saw her, it was like she was a different woman altogether. There was a blankness to her eyes that concerned him. An air of menace about her that honestly scared him to death. He’s more than man enough to admit it.
At first, Liner thinks it’s because she’s bi-polar, or possibly psychopathic.
Then he realizes the truth.
That there isn’t a single person that exhibits such different personalities, but two.
Two identical twin sisters, both completely different, yet exactly the same.
One with a soul, and one without.
One that has his heart, and one that only wants to destroy it.

I’m not even really sure where to begin with this review except to say I thoroughly enjoyed this story. More so than I expected, which is saying a lot as I am never disappointed going into one of LLV’s books. I think what I loved the most is how different it was from all her other books, of which there are many and I’ve read them all many many times. From the first page there was danger, hopelessness, and just general uncertainty and I couldn’t get enough!
Character building was slow going in SGS, but it allowed me to fall in love with the characters cohesively. I felt like I was growing and discovering them at the same pace they were with each other and it was a much welcome added element to an already disturbing tale. Because as horrid and unfathomable as the circumstances were surrounding their love story, there was always an underlying yearning for more. More from life, more from each other, more for anything. There was an intense need between these characters that was undeniable. I particularly loved that from the beginning there was a trust between them when everything else was screaming at them not to. Their connection was instant though neither could figure out why. It just simply didn’t matter; it was there despite all the obstacles they had to cross.
Even though you will figure it out very quickly into the story and especially if you’ve been paying attention to this series, I’m purposely being very vague about the main characters. It does the story a disservice to know too much about them beforehand. Not to the extent of the Ghost story line from Beard Up, but enough that I want you to discover everything on your own. Trust me when I say the payday you will inevitably receive will be well worth the wait. What this woman has to endure is atrocious on a level I didn’t know could exist and with the amount of books I read and TV I watch, that says a lot. Even then we only really scratch the surface of what I am sure she endured for so many years.
Overall I really enjoyed this story. It was one of those I started after midnight stating I was just going to read a few chapters and then pick it back up in the morning. That then turned into me staying up until 4 am to finish because I just couldn’t put it down and had to know how it would end. Not only did this story involve some of the other characters from this series but it brought in a few from a classic LLV series. LLV is the master of tying everything together be it a small connection or large and this allows you to never really leave her carefully crafted world even after you finish books and series. Even though you don’t have to, I highly recommend you read the rest of this series first, or in the least, read the first book Mess Me Up. I know you will love it as much as I did!
When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.
Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.
No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone. Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.
She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.
And he doesn’t even know her name.
He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.
Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.
Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.
Two impossible situations.
One decision that would change him forever.
Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.
What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.
Nope, not Linc.
At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone.
In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms. She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’
She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.
Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water.
There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.
But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.
A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.
Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.
Wade had everything he could ever want in life…then he lost it.
Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found.
Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife
Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back.
Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC.
Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away.
With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality.
But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.
Hoax knows two things very well.
One, he’s not relationship material. Two, the nurse that treats him for erectile dysfunction is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, and practically has ‘the marrying type’ stamped on her forehead.
Does that stop him from wanting her?
Unfortunately, he learned a long time ago that Army Delta Force and long-lasting relationships don’t go hand in hand.
But beautiful hazel eyes, curly blonde hair, and the prettiest lips he’s ever seen play havoc with his resolve, making him forget his earlier convictions.
All it takes is one teeny, tiny kiss for every shred of control he has to disappear, along with the problem in his pants.
Soon he finds himself doing things that he knows that he shouldn’t. He doesn’t know that he’s found the woman that’s meant to be his. Nor does he realize that her father is the man he’s idolized from the moment he joined the army at the age of eighteen. Because, maybe if he had, he would’ve tried a little harder to ignore the pull he felt between them instead of making her his the night before he deployed for six months.
He also might’ve tried a little harder not to knock her up.
