I like this book enough. Blaire has surprised me since the beginning from the moment she carried the gun and pointed to a stranger. She knows how to handle a gun better than most men for sure. Her mother had been sick for three years and has died now, her twin sister Valerie died in a car accident which involved his father, and his father has run away from their life and left her alone to take care of her sick mother until she passed away. Even after her mother has passed away, she has to pay the hospital bill by selling their one and only house. So, Blaire has nothing and nobody now.
Although it kills her pride, she tried to contact his father to see if he could give her a place to stay for a month until she get a job, make enough money then set off to rent an apartment. Her father then gave her an address which lead her to Rush. By the time she reached the house of his father or what she is told is his, she met his stepbrother Rush for the first time. Rush is a dangerous man yet breathtakingly handsome. Most women want him but Rush isn't the type of guy who dating girls, he is F-ing them. Blaire knows Rush is dangerous, but she needs a place to stay. She runs out of gas and have only a little money left in her purse. She has nothing left.
My first impression of Rush isn't good. Although I kinda hate him at first, but he successfully captured my heart at last. He also reminds me of the famous male fictional character Christian Grey. They have many things in common which one of it is they like and want to rule everything, as the way Rush
told ordered Blaire to eat and he doesn't want to hear No, etc. Besides, Rush also seems to find the F word amusing. There are several things that lead me to the thought of how similar Rush and Christian are. Not that they are bad though :)
I take pity on Blaire for what she had been through for the past years. It won't be easy to anyone, but at least when others have receive supports from family or relatives, Blaire has nobody to talk to, nobody cares enough to help her until she met Rush.
Everyone always said that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul was shattered.
