I enjoyed this book. I liked the plot a lot. I loved how determined Sloan was to make it on her own even though she had been so sheltered. She wanted to get away from her father and his Irish Mafia dealings. I advise everyone to read this series in order so everything is clear. I love the growth Sloan went through during this book. This dragged for me at times. This book had danger, intrigue, murder, Irish Mafia, action, revenge, suspense, family, and so much more. This kept my interest from beginning to end. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend
