4.5 stars. Creed and Sylvie have really touched my heart. Two perfectly matched badasses! I rank Creed as #2 among my favorite Kristen Ashley heroes. (Tate from Sweet Dreams is still my #1)

They are able to find comfort in each other and become instant friends. Over the years their relationship grows from childhood best friends to something much more undeniable.

I saw him and froze solid.
No fucking way."
Time has been unkind and has changed them both, sweet Sylvie is now a gun toting, badass P.I. Still Creed is determined to have his Sylvie back no matter what.
