It’s so well written that you feel like you are watching this story as it’s playing out, which considering the content is quite an emotional, scary and thought provoking ride!!” ~ TotallyBooked Blog

What Colin doesn’t know can’t hurt him.

At least that’s what I tell myself about the secrets I keep. I don’t have a choice, not if I want to keep my daughter safe. And keep him Colin safe too. There are enemies in the shadows waiting to strike from all sides. I’m holding them out with my bare hands, but it’s hard not to get crushed in the process.

And the truth has a way of coming out.

If I’m not careful, the past I’ve been working so hard to hide, the pain I’ve been fighting so long to outrun, will wipe out the man I love.

Review –

Moving in with Collin has made Allie feel safe and  Colin is still working to keep Bailey away from her biological father but he is still a person of  mystery.  With Allie’s baggage from the past and Colin being so secretive it’s easy  to see why there is trust issues on both sides.   Then the police come knocking on Colin’s door and begin questioning Allie about Colin and his business practices  and just what it is that he does.  The police give Allie some information and she wants to do her best to protect Collin so now she has trust issues not only with him but with just about everybody in general including the police. She’s in a very tough spot.

The love scenes between Allie and Colin are filled with sexually tension because  Colin wants to give Allie the pain she needs but he also wants to pleasure her. In  his heart he wants to be tender but feels he has to give her what she craves.

I love this series and will report on the third book dealing with Colin and Allie very soon.

Rough (Chicago Underground #1) by Skye Warren

Book Description:

Published: May 24, 2015

Rough is a sexy new adult romantic suspense with a strong-and-silent-type hero…

I’m a cautionary tale. A statistic. A victim. A single teenage mother from the poor part of town. Most of the time I’m too busy working and struggling to care what people think. Survival doesn’t come easy.

I have a dark secret, a pressure valve, a rare moment just for myself. On these nights I visit a club. There I find men who give me what I need. Men who aren’t afraid to take what they want.

Men like Colin.

But he takes more than a few stolen hours. He demands more than my body. He wants my heart and soul–my happily ever after. I never thought I’d be Cinderella. I never thought a man that rough could be my prince.

“This is a book you MUST read if you like gritty, edgier romance that makes you think as well as turns you on.” ~ Cari Quinn, USA Today Bestselling Author

Author’s Note: ROUGH is a dark new adult romantic suspense novel in the Chicago Underground series.

Review –

I have discovered another great series –Chicago Underground and it sizzles with sexual tension.

Alli doesn’t trust men and with good reason. She was raped by someone she grew up with and thought of a  best friend and this caused the birth of her now two old daughter, whom she loves more than anything.  She doesn’t really feel the next for sex but when she does she wants it rough.

She thinks she’s found a man, Colin Murphy, who can give her what she needs and he does but sometimes he likes to be gentle too. He has his own baggage, he has a temper and his work involves illegal activity but is closed lipped about it. We wants to protect Alli and possess her. When the man who raped Allie comes back into the picture, Colin, does his best with the help of his brother and lawyer to keep the baby in her custody.

I really like this series and have read the other two follow-up  books  and will report on them soon.
