Having enjoyed Eva Leigh’s previous series, the Wicked Quills, I was curious as to what she would write next. But while the premise is interesting, I found the execution lacking.

The past romance between Alex and Cassandra is built on one night spent together. I’m not sure if I’m inexperienced in love, or it’s their past is poorly written, but there are no details as to what made that night so special, or what drew them to each other.

The characters as individuals are interesting, and in a different book, with a slightly different premise, I might have liked them more. I like that Alex isn’t overly angsty, and has an appreciation for what he has, and over the course of the book, we see him exposed to the realities of the world for those less fortunate, especially women. And through Cassandra, we see someone who has grown up with real hardship, but it doesn’t affect her hoping for the possibility of a better life for herself.
