⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
He’s the twin without a heart, or is he?
Cillian and Cole Hendry didn’t have an easy childhood and neither one of them are the type for love and kindness. The owners of a popular night club, Asylum, businessmen of questionable dealings, Cole and Cillian are determined to get the First Minister to reverse her bill that will legalize drugs in Scotland. They have a plan in place to convince her that the bill is not a good idea, but what they don’t know is that she is just as determined as they are and maybe a bit more ruthless than them too.
Meisie Ford has returned to Edinburgh from South Africa, where she was living with her father. She finds herself in Asylum looking for someone that does not exist. Little does she know she has been set up and her life is about to be turned upside down, again.
This story is twisted, sad, and a bit dark. It is also entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see if things could get any worse for Meisie than they were. They can but then Cillian is there to rescue her and protect her. Two unlikely people that find themselves falling for each other and finding a way for their worlds to combine and them to have a life together. They will have to deal with a lot to get to where they want to be, and their life together does not start out as a fairy tale love story, but it will end that way. I give this story a 4.5-star review and highly suggest it to readers who like twisted, dark, psychological thrillers, and stories where the Hero is an unlikely character. I really enjoyed the story and I look forward to more in the series to come.
