I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 Stars
What did I like?
While the story line is about harsh characters, the hero is actually a sweetheart, under all the gruff and toughness. He is a good example for actions speak louder than words. While his language was harsh and seemed to be mean towards the heroine, the truth is life is hard and he protected her rather than abused her.
What did I not like?
I hate that she had to choose, her father is a bottom feeder for the way he manipulated her and the way he forced the h/h hands.
Recommendation: While the language was gritty and the setting intense, overall it was a very good read.
