Book Whisperer Rating:
Sadie Townsend is known by all as The Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated Drug Lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder. But one inebriated night, she shows the Real Sadie to the undercover agent she knows is investigating her father, the handsome Hector Chavez, and he knows he’ll stop at nothing to have her.
Hector makes one (huge) mistake; he waits for Sadie to come to him. Tragedy strikes and Sadie’s got a choice, she can retreat behind her Ice Fortress or she can embrace the Rock Chick/Hot Bunch World. Guided by Hector, the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch and her new gay roommates, Buddy and Ralphie, Sadie negotiates a life out from under her father’s thumb, a life that includes poison, arson and learning how to make s’mores.
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! This book floored me and the reason why is because all KA books have something bad that happens or something that could potentially happen to the women but in this book something BAD happens! Now when any other KA alpha male finds out his woman is in trouble, their reaction is over the top but when Hector finds out what happened to poor Sadie, he blows through the roof and out into outer space.
I think my main enjoyment while reading this book (besides the all the sexy men and their attitudes) was watching Sadie grow into the group. At first, she puts on this cold façade just so that she can get through without having to open herself up to anyone. This makes it so she will never get her heart broken. And she keeps it up for a while but slowly lets everyone see the real Sadie (the one that Hector loves.) Finally it happens; she opens up to Hector and the group and becomes a real Rock Chick!
Hector is Mr. Sexy Pants if there ever was one! He was so wonderfully terrific to Sadie after the whole ordeal that I fell for him even harder than I thought possible. He quickly went to my number two favorite guy in this series (Luke being number one.)
