💚🔥💚🔥💚🔥Welcome to Mustang Prairie💚🔥💚🔥💚
I just wanted to belong…
Sadie had never belonged anywhere other than on stage. A soulful singer and musician, she left home at a young age and never looked back. No one missed her anyhow. Traveling the country with one no good boyfriend or another for work, Sadie settled in New Orleans until another d-bag boyfriend decided she wasn’t enough…and the slutty new bartender was.
She left for Mustang Prairie and the open arms of her half-sister Amelia…or so she thought
I just wanted to protect her…
Dylan Parker was retired at the ripe old age of 34. After catching a serial killer who’d tortured Chicago for a decade, he was ready to turn in his homicide detective’s shield.
Needing distance from his high society parents and their social climbing friends he packed up his truck and bought a bar in Mustang Prairie. Getting reacquainted with small town life would be an adjustment…until he met a copper haired amazon with a voice like warm honey.
Sadie was everything he wanted; a friend, a devil’s advocate, a sister, and a confidante. Theirs was a deeply satisfying friendship so Sadie and Dylan fought their mutual attraction.
Can Sadie & Dylan admit that their friendship feels more like love?
Sordid is an emotional read that tells the story of Grant and Bridget, two people who hook up once, only find their connection to each other is much realer than they originally thought. Even though I’m not a huge fan of books written in the first person, and I really did have some issues with the immature way some of the characters spoke, but it didn’t take away too much from my overall enjoyment of the book.
I really liked Bridget. A lot. She is what makes Sordid a compelling story, even though I’d argue Grant is the star of this story. She isn’t a doormat and she isn’t naive. She has goals for her life, plans of how she wants things to turn out despite how she started, and no one–not even the delicious Grant Lancaster–is going to derail her plans. And Grant…boy did he have some issues. And secrets. And he could be kind of a jerk.
But he did have redeeming qualities, and reasons for his behavior. I don’t think they excuse his behavior all the way, but I can forgive it because if we were all perfect, romance would be boring.
So, I give Sordid a solid 4 cocktail glass review.
I’ve no clue who is hunting me, but he demands I complete his tests. I fear if I can’t figure out his identity, he’ll kill me just like he said.
His eyes were blue the last time I looked into them, but now when he glares at me they’re green. Is the Wolf playing dress up? Or are there two monsters who have stolen me?

I want out of this nightmare, and the only way to do that is to win.
I need to win.
