Fifteen years ago, I saw him
Seven years ago, I begged him.
Locked in a twisted game of friends, I gave Theo Von Bremen everything.
We were reckless.
We were dangerous.
We were crazy in love.
Until he came along.
Cade breathed fire into my soul, forever changing my direction
He was my salvation.
I was his redemption.
He became my mission.
I became his Commander.
But where does that leave Theo?
Exactly where I want him.
On his knees.

This was a great debut novel from Kristy Marie! I adored the characters, especially Anniston. She’s feisty, funny, kind-hearted, and more, yet she isn’t written without flaws which always makes a character relatable/ likable.
“How ’bout you go fetch that, Michaels? I’ll fucking sign it for you.”
The bond between her and her best friend Theo was believable and damn was there some crazy heat between them! If they weren’t clawing at each other, their witty dialogue led to some ‘LOL’ moments.
“You’ll never fuck another man.” – Theo
“I’ll bury a bitch that looks at you with more than a glare.” 🤣 – Anniston
Then there’s Cade, the half-dead, homeless veteran she stumbles across… You guys, the topic of the military, any mistreatment, PTSD, etc is going to tear at my heart, completely. And this did. It also made me adore Anniston’s character and want to dive inside the pages of the story and wrap cotton wool around Cade and the gang that follows a little later.
I did want the trio (Cade, Theo, and Anniston) to delve into Poly territory. As the plot developed though, I realized that maybe it wouldn’t have fit with Theo’s character, Anniston yes, maybe even Cade. My exact note was: ‘51% – slightly disappointed cade’s off the menu.’ Lol. So if you’re going into this thinking that’s going to happen, this is your heads-up.
The plot delivers a steady stream of hot, heartbreaking, funny, and intense scenes, which builds to a dramatic showdown that could make or break Anniston’s world. There isn’t just the conflict between the two men that love Anniston, there’s a peek at the danger surrounding a sex trafficking ring. More pointedly, the type of person a part of that world. Translated: Asshole.
I haven’t been able to get into a book of late. This helped, I plowed through it and enjoyed every second. I’ll be keeping an eye out for future releases from Kristy Marie’s. Recommended.
