Sometimes angels fall.
Maddie doesn’t really owe drug lord, Carlos Castillo, money. So she hadn’t taken his threats seriously. Until now. He wants it, whether she owes it or not. And if she doesn’t have it in six weeks he’s gonna take her as payment instead.
Tyler would save the world if he could. That’s a fight that lasts forever. And if there’s one thing he’s good at, it’s fighting. So if Maddie thinks she’s gonna deal with an insane drug lord on her own, she’s crazier than he is.
She’s got a debt she can’t pay. He’s got more money than he needs.
She’s not gonna fall for his charm. He’s gonna make sure that happens.
They’re destined to be together. Even if Maddie doesn’t know it yet.
Sometimes your soul mate isn’t who you’d choose, it’s who you need.
Good thing you don’t get to choose.
I fucking love Tyler! His bizarre sense of humour, his quirky outlook on life, and the fact that he loves Maddie and really does try his hardest to respect her wishes even if she doesn’t see it that way.
The funny one-liners and sarcastic retorts that Tyler just can’t keep to himself. The Angel/Devil arguments that Maddie has with herself. The inner monologues that send both of them into fazed out moments where the world ceases around them. All of these are brought about by the genius writing team of Huss and McClain, and that’s just the tip of the story iceberg.
This book had me all over the place, emotionally speaking. Maddie is still in debt to Carlos and has Logan breathing down her neck. Tyler, with the help of some friends – old and new, finally becomes what Maddie needs. There are a few happy surprises along the way and the pair are finally finding some clarity in their lives. You know when you get to that stage in a book when everything is going right and you think…”ok, story can end now, all is good”…but no, the writer/s just keep on going. There is that defining moment for me in this book, and guess what? Yep, the writers just kept on going!
No spoilers but if you get as involved with the characters as much as I do, not just the main ones but all the side characters that make the stories come to life, then I would suggest that you have some tissues at the ready.
The third instalment of the Original Sin Series, Flesh into Fire, will be released on 17th April 2018.
At the time of writing this review I know that Johnathan McClain is not well so I would like to send my best wishes to him and hope he Gets Well very soon.
EOBS – Personal note to Julie – I was at the book signing in London and have the photo to prove it! And I can confirm that your readers do all love you and support you 100%. I just hope that being in the UK I get to see The Company when it is aired.
