I would recommend if you have not read Hell's Knight which is the first in this series, you need to before reading this one to better understand Spike. With that being said this will contain spoilers as I am going to reference the first book.
This is the Story of Ciara and Spike.
Spike is dealing with the death of his wife ( which she died in a car accident while he and Cade where being chased) and since her death he is still feeling guilty about it and living life while keeping everyone closed off to himself. He has closed himself off to the thought of love and anything having to do with it.
Ciara is Spike's deceased wife's sister. Yeahh so his sister In law if you will. She was always second best to everything when it came to her sister She had been Spikes best friend and had fallen in love with him when she was a teenager, but as everything else in Ciara's life her sister snuck in and took Spike from her. She never told Spike that she loved him and he never told her that he loved her.
“I want to save you. I want that friend that I know is in there. I can’t walk away, Spike. I hate you, and yet I can’t walk away.”
So here we are years later and Ciara is finally going after what she wants and she will stop at nothing until she gets Spike to realize he does deserve love and he does deserve to be with her. She is going to get him to work through his guilt from her sister's death as well.
“It was you who took my heart, and you who fuckin’ broke it. She picked the pieces up when I couldn’t find you, and so I stopped fighting. Cheyenne might have had me in the end, Tom Cat, but my heart was always yours first.”
I thought this book was better then the first one, the steam factor in this one was great. The characters where great ...
I can't wait for Jackson's book and I would LOVE to see Muff get his own book hahahah
