It'd be criminal to not start this review by stating my love for Georgia Le Carre's books!! I think other than one at a 4.5 all of them have been solid 5 star reads for me. 

I'm passionate about them. 
They totally have my heart.


HOWEVER!!...I'm not going to lie!!
My star off is for the first 15% ish of this one which honestly threw me off course.


I couldn't get a single shred of my beloved 
Georgia Le Carre in the writing or story and having read every one of her books and knowing within two pages that it's one of hers, I found this a bit off putting. 
Gone are the conspiracy theories, quotes, smart headers (the 'OMG...' chapter headers were just awful), poems, deep, deep smooth beautiful writing 
and even the odd joke! 
The story itself didn't feel 
as if it was going to be strong at that point 
and for me that was a proper WTF hour...


It is a GLC (and admittedly Laura Jack who I haven't read) so I had to push through the pissy mood it was putting me in and PHEW!!! I'm really glad that I did!! 

Although this isn't billed as a dark read, I did initially find the premise quite dark, super fan turns stalker gets job with the family in order to get close to the H, but as I read it, it came to life in a much lighter way and I had to remember that the h was a kid when she was heavily into him - so all was well and Cash's beautiful bad boy turns good man attitude won me over.


And when it got hot, it got sizzling!!!

Overall, it is a really good book - one that I read in a 
couple of sessions and couldn't put down in the end.
