We’re back at Winston College, this time with Harper, a polished, wealthy socialite. Our girl is high profile and president of the Deltas, but nobody truly knows her, and they certainly know nothing of her past and her bruising dark secrets. Kane’s our hero, the similarly damaged and delicious foster brother to Brax from book one. That lovely Boston accent is back. Ahhcent. [Read more…]
Do you ever get the feeling you’ve read a book before? Maybe it’s because this sort of story is right up my alley, it was both familiar and reassuringly good.
