5 He's Not Who He Appears To Be Stars!!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill
I LOVE the Nashville Assassins and I LOVE this book!! This book centers around Vaughn Johansson and Brie Soledad and their love/hate relationship. You know what they say about those kind of relationships don't you? They're ON FIRE in the bedroom... and in this case, it's spot on!!! However, it takes a while for them to get to the bedroom...
This book moves at just the right pace for these two. They each have secrets they're hiding and/or dealing with and let me tell you there are times in this book that you'll be gutted. Vaughn in all his smart-mouthed ways has some history that only a few are privileged to know about and when it comes to Brie uses this to his advantage and knows what buttons to push with her and he does such a good job of it....
"You're weird around her. It's like you want to hate her, but you want to bang her - maybe even more than just bang and you don't like that."Brie is so awesome in the way she handles Vaughn especially once these two get behind closed doors! She's smart, sexy, intelligent and has a heart of pure gold and he just doesn't know what to do with that. One of the things I loved the most about Brie is her relationship with Rodney her younger brother who needs to be cared for/monitored on a consistent basis. When it comes to Vaughn she doesn't let him get away with anything and I want to fist-bump her because of that. Even though he's amazing on the ice it doesn't give him license to not respect her or others...but we do get to find out why and how he is this way....and it blew me away!!!
Once there is an ignition for these two it's almost like they can't keep their hands off each other and at times I was rolling with them...Vaughn comes out of left field sometimes I'd sit here and think, "No, he didn't just say that...did he?" But he did Brie takes in stride.
Overall this another winner and dare I say Hat Trick for the Nashville Assassins series. Toni has captured these characters perfectly. This includes all the secondary characters, like Jensen, Wren, Wells and others and let's not forget Tricksie because she adds a whole different element to this story and it was the best!! I can't wait to see what happens in the future for this couple because their life together is going to be one heck of a ride!
