“Nassir Gates, half man and half monster. He was lethal and toxic, keeping all that sinister beauty covered up in a ridiculously expensive suit that made him look elegant and falsely civilized.”
Nassir Gates is a feared man. He didn’t have an easy life growing up. As a young boy, he saw and did things no young man his age should ever have to do. The moment he arrives at the Point and sets his eyes on Honor aka Keelyn Foster, he knows she is his equal.
Keelyn doesn’t want to rely on anyone. Especially not a man like Nassir. She’s an independent woman who has always kept the only man that wants her at arms length.
There is a reason why she continues to push him away but if I’m being honest, it got a tad bit annoying. I still respected her though, because she was resilient and not some pushover. I’d say she was the perfect match for Nassir.
“He was everything I ever wanted and everything I shouldn’t allow in my life, and there was absolutely no one I loved to hate more than him.”
The sexual tension is through the roof when it comes down to these two. After knowing each other for awhile, they never even kissed. I was waiting in eager anticipation for these two to get together. And when they did, it was so good! I liked them separately but together they’re invincible.
My only complaint is that sometimes the story was a bit repetitive, which bothered me a lot.
All in all, this was yet another great book by Jay Crownover that was equally sexy and dark.
“My heart was a fortress, and he was the only one that had ever had the keys to it.”
