Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace.

Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand.

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.

At A Glance

Why? Just, why?

The Good

Logan had a lot of promise. The premise is one of my favorites. A girl on the run from her past and the guy who wants to rescue her. What can I say, I like the classic ‘knight and shinning armor’ thing. The mystery was pretty awesome as well. I was so nervous for Stella. Her past sucked balls and it still had a hold on her. I would say the first 20% was really good. Then…

The Bad

…Everything went to crap. I feel like the Debbie Downer of reviews right now. Not much is working for me lately. Logan is no different. We have nauseating insta-love. Some of the fastest, unrealistic insta-love I have ever seen. Our strong characters turned into cheesy mush as their thoughts turned from staying one step ahead of danger to thoughts of ‘love making,’ flirting, and serious love talk after two days of knowing each other.

But it was the action, or lack there of that really disappointed me. The whole book was leading to something. The big bad was coming and all we could do was countdown and pee our pants a little with fear/anticipation. The build-up was awesome. Then NOTHING EFFING HAPPENED! Nada. Zilch. Hey, Jennifer, you know that big bad that we teased you with for 100’s of pages? Well, never mind, its not coming. Everything is fine now. *head…desk* All that mystery and tension for nothing.

The Snuggly

The sex was pretty hot. Especially the first sex scene which was rough and raw. I could have done without the lovey-dovey stuff after that.

Final Thoughts

I don’t know if its me or what but good books seem scarce right now. Logan really disappointed. I gave it 2 stars because the beginning was pretty dang good. I can’t believe how downhill it went after that. Like an effing ravine. Not recommended.


“Monogamy was for the birds, and he didn’t fucking care to tweet.”  

“There is only reason he would bring you here. He’s not rescuing you, he’s falling for you.”

    Sorry this book didn’t work for you. Insta love can work in some books, like ones geared to a younger audience, but not with this books premise. It is unlikely someone with Stella’s past would end up in insta love.

    Ugh… 2 things I hate: build up and nada, and insta-love. Rarely I can deal with insta-love but it has happened. I don’t see me liking it here however. I give you kudos for finishing it and not DNF’ing it!

      Really? It’s the first time I saw the picture. I do hate when a pic is used too much for covers.

    Like an effing ravine LOL. The unbelievable insta-love is bad enough, but the climax just fizzled and puffed. That’s terrible! Eeek. Great review!
