Up To Me (The Bad Boys #2)
By : M. Leigthon
Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.
Olivia finds bliss unlike any she’s ever known in Cash’s arms. He sets her skin on fire and melts her heart right inside her chest. Unfortunately, their happily ever after is short-lived when a shadow from Cash’s past threatens to turn their world upside down.
Dangerous people from his father’s world have discovered that Cash holds information that could put them away for a very long time. And they’re willing to do anything—and hurt anybody—to get it back. Giving it up means Cash must choose between the life of his father and the life of Olivia.
Having nearly overcome her wariness of bad boys, Olivia’s trust is shaken when this new threat arises. Now she finds that Cash is not only a danger to her heart, but his family has associations that are a danger to her life as well. She soon discovers that there are some situations in life where trust is a girl’s only option. And this is one of them. If she’s to live, she must trust Cash with her life. But to Olivia, that’s much, much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.
3 stars/5 stars
I didn’t love it but also didn’t hate it. It was okay. Though I read it with high expectation – the reviews I read full of praises. So, I ended tad bit disappointed.
Before you read this you MUST read the previous book. If you didn’t I guarantee you will baffled with the storyline. I read the first book last month so the story still fresh in my memory.
The story continued straight from the end of the previous book. After return from her father’s home, Olivia insist to hide her relationship with Cash. Barely few pages into the story her insecurity about bad boys emerge again just because someone who used to hate her told her that Cash was a player and definitely couldn’t be one man woman. Seriously? That girl had big trust issue.
When Cash drove Olivia home, they found that Marissa being kidnapped by Cash the family – the Russian mob who put his father into prison. And the action begun. Must said that after I used to read romantic suspense, the action in this book feel flat. Not real. Seems like feigned. But the twist about Nash totally unpredictable – I really didn’t see that coming. Way to go.
Speaking of romance, kudos for the sensuality. Totally swoonlicious. A lot of WOW scenes. *fan myself* – enough said 🙂
We left hanging (again) in the end of the book. There’s still a lot of mystery and back in the revenge theme. Though I didn’t love this book but I can wait to read the next installment.
