X and I were probably doomed from the start

That’s what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug dealer, thank you very much. I’m turning over a new leaf and all that.

Which is why I should leave him alone.

Except he tempts me to do things I swore I’d stop doing. It’s that whole gruff, grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don’t want that feeling to end.

Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.

She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from jail, I can’t quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when she’s trying her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it’s myhouse she’s burglarizing.

Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.

But that’s the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for you—you don’t walk away when you should.

Note from the authors:

This book deals with subject matter that is highly improbable, sometimes campy, and definitely illegal. Please don’t use it as a guideline for how to live your life, but enjoy nonetheless

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Comedy, psychological
Stand-Alone: Yes
Part of a Series: No
POV: X and Lucy
Steam Level: Toasty

I knew that this book was going to be good when: 1. It has a disclaimer that the situations they are dealing with is campy and illegal and 2 the opening line is “Holy pissflaps.” Lucy is the kind of heroine that I enjoy reading in books. She’s funny, smart, sassy, and independent. X is an unlikely alpha male with his anxiety and harping mother. The combination of these two unlikely characters is humorous and just works. It was great that when one was melting down the other was calm and vise versa. Lucy puts some excitement in X’s life while X puts some stability in Lucy’s. And Lucy’s morals in what she steals and why she steals it is (dare I say) logical. I enjoyed this book quite a bit. This book can be read superficially with just the humor but also deeper looking into anxiety and the reason’s behind behaviors. Overall a fun book.

I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.
