When Baker first saw Millie, he truly believed he was ready to start afresh. The death of his wife and child had left him hollow. It was time to start over and leave his old life behind, without looking back.
Millie was used to coming last in everything, forever second best. There was no way she’d be able to compete with a ghost, so she let Baker go. But years have passed, and Baker is no longer a lost soul. He intends to show Millie the real man he has become. He’s determined to have a future with Millie. With the help of his family, The Skulls, he knows he’ll claim her as his old lady, and his wife in the end. With The Skulls at his back, there’s no chance of failing.
Everything seems to fall into place. Baker has Millie right where he wants her, in his heart, and in his bed. When her sister turns up, trouble comes with her. Can Baker convince Millie that he’ll stick by her? Will Bethany come between them? It’s time for Millie to find out what it’s like to have The Skulls at her back. No one attacks a Skull and gets away with it, and Millie is a Skull, Baker’s old lady, and part of the family.
This book was another great chapter in The Skulls series. I felt it was a fairly sweet story that involved most of the Skulls family. It was lower on the suspense than I’ve come to expect from Sam Crescent, but more than made up for it with the romance aspect.
The plot was strong, multi layered, and well written. The main story begins with Baker finally letting go of his past and ready to move on with Millie. At last. The moment was a long time coming and nearly too late since he has been pushing Millie away for so long. That’s where the romance came in because alpha Baker had to convince a past burnt Millie that she wasn’t going to be his second place. I really liked Millie for standing up and making her feelings clear. She had her own sould searching to do about her past, her family and her feelings about the club. I loved the dramatics. Also, I loved how the author caught the readers up with our other favorite Skulls couples. Especially Lash and Angel, and setting up more of a relationship between Sally and Steven. It’s still looking good for The Skulls future books.
As usual, I loved the main couple, Baker and Millie. The characters in this series have all taken on a life of their own and I have adored them all. The writing was clean and concise with a super fast flow to the story. To top it all off there was some trouble that came up near the end of the story. All in all it was a sexy and sweet and suspenseful combination that worked perfectly. I definitely can’t wait to see what happens next in the series.
