Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.
An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.
With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.
When I started the Bad Boys series about this time last year, I knew it was going to be a great one. The story took a turn that I didn’t seem coming, and it never let up. I immediately fell hard for the Davenport boys, and the story that Ms. Leighton was weaving was nothing short of sexy, suspenseful, and certainly intriguing. The series wraps up with Everything for Us and honestly, it was a great conclusion, though I’m sad to see the end of these characters.
Without giving too much away from the first two books in the series, I will say, there’s not the same intensity in way of the criminal drama that we saw in Down to You and Up to Me, but there’s plenty of drama, where Marissa and Nash are concerned.
Oh Marissa. Obviously, Marissa was not a liked character. At all. I did appreciate her transformation, though, and could certainly empathize with her and the past she lived. She definitely became a much more understood character, and I was rooting for her. I wanted her to figure her stuff out, and be happy.
Nash! The same as the other books, I love Nash (and Cash). We got so much more of him in this book, and it was great to see what made him tick, as well as see all he’d been through while Cash was living his life. I have to mention, too, that he’s just smokin’ hot. In and outta the sack. :)
The chemistry between Marissa and Nash (not unlike Cash & Olivia) was smoldering. Seriously. This is an author who knows what’s up when it comes to steam. Those Davenport boys have skills. Separately, Nash and Marissa have all kinds of issues to deal with, but then together, they have plenty of other challenges to overcome.
Since this was the final installment, the story came to a major culmination, where we lots of questions were answered. Lots! I enjoyed seeing so many of the other characters from the series, although I did wish there was more Ginger & Gavin. I get why there wasn’t, but I did love them so much, especially in the second book, so I was bummed not to see more of them.
While it’s always bittersweet to come to the end of a beloved series, I am very happy with how this story progressed. I really liked that each book flowed into the next, but was from different POVs. It was great to never get sick of being in one particular characters’ head. Because throughout the series, you got the story from the different perspectives, creating much more depth to this storyline. M. Leighton’s writing is superb; her pacing and character development is so so good, and once you start reading, you’ll be hooked. This is absolutely a must read series–there’s love, action, suspense, some danger, lots of sexiness, and there’s a great storyline, that was definitely unique.
