⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Two people who are broken and beating themselves up for things that have happened to their loved ones.
Joker has one last job to do before he can take his son and have a better life for both of them. Once he finishes the job he can go back home to New York, pick up his son and figure out what to do next. He has to show his son a better life than what he had growing up. Unfortunately, he may not get the opportunity to have a better life. His club may have other plans for him.
Daisy doesn’t know any other way to live than how she has been for years. One job to the next just to survive. She’s smart, beautiful, and dangerous in how she can play people. However, she’s tired of living her life this way and wants to go the straight and narrow, but she may not get the chance. This one last job could set her up so that she can find her way to a straight life, but she isn’t prepared for Joker.
I loved this story. The pages turned quickly, and the characters kept the pages hot. Joker and Daisy are two people who are trying to find a better way of life, but their circumstances keep pulling them back and holding them down. They have to fight for what they want and make those fantasies reality. It takes a lot for them both to find their way and attain what they want, but once they figure out how to step up and keep going, they’ll find that reality they both want. I give this story a 5-star review and would love to read more of these characters. This was my first read of Barbara Nolan, but I will be looking for more of her books in the future.
