Look, but don’t touch…she might as well wear a neon sign that says it. It just makes me want her more.
She might be above me in every way, but I still want her under me.
I’ve got no business touching her rich-girl skin, but that won’t stop me from stealing a taste. Because rules were meant to be broken—especially when the prize is so fine.
In a world where nothing is at it seems, what's buried beneath these lies?

Wow. Well and truly wow. Even though I’ve read and loved all of March’s books, this one took me by complete and utter surprise. I am rocked to the core and beyond emotional. To make matters worse, I can hardly talk about the book without giving anything away. Just know this is far and above my favorite of the series and I’m definitely going to be ordering the paperback for my shelves.
This book involves three main characters, but not to the extent you may think or the direction it will go. I’ll admit I had the surprise pegged from the beginning, but still reading it, blew me away. Pretty sure I was crying by that point. One of our characters has had bit pieces in all the books, one we met in Chains and the other we met in Scars. And even though this story ended up exactly the way I wanted it to, I can’t help but wonder whose turn will be next in the series. I can hope who it will be, but there are just so many avenues she could take I would hate to guess wrong. Let’s just say the door is open to at least a few more books and that makes me VERY happy.
I love how in her books the characters always come full circle with the stars of the previous books. I love that their lives are intertwined. I can’t say with certainty that she was my favorite female lead (close though) but I can say that he was my favorite of her male leads. There were so many secrets, cloaks and daggers in this story I feel like we could use another book just getting to know him better. As perfect as this story was, that would have made it complete perfection in my eyes. Didn’t take away from the story in the least, but I’m greedy with my characters and will always want more. So to sum it all up, read this book! Phenomenal!
He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name.
The limelight that follows him could expose everything I’m hiding. But even knowing the risks, I can’t force myself to stay away.
I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it.
Will we lose it all when I reveal what’s beneath this mask?
I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.
And then I finally had her for one night.
A night I don’t remember.
I figured I’d blown my shot.
But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.
Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?
I was raised on the streets, so I know things are rarely as simple as they appear—especially this rich girl showing up at my pawnshop demanding a job.
She’s the most tempting thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ll be damned if I can make her leave.
Shit just got complicated … but when it comes to her—I want complicated.
We’re both fighting our own demons, and our only chance at a future is to let go of the past.
But will we be strong enough to break free from beneath these chains?
I’m the guy you love to hate.
In every story in my life, I seem to end up playing the villain—and I’ve got the scars to prove it.
That role works fine for me, because I’m sure as hell not anyone’s hero.
I run my life and my empire with an iron fist—until she knocks my tightly controlled world off its axis.
She’s nobody’s damsel in distress, but I can’t help but want to save her anyway.
I guess we’re about to find out if there’s a hero buried … beneath these scars.
