Most people think riot squad officer Taylor Jameson is an asshole. Little do they know his apparent indifference stems from having a meddlesome family always butting into his business. And little does Taylor know he’s about to stumble into a situation that’ll make indifference impossible.

When everything goes horribly wrong at a political rally on a harbour ferry, Taylor encounters Sietta Salisbury. The son of a wealthy politician, Sietta is a revered—but presumed dead—musician, and an enigma who is so strange, Taylor is compelled to look into his background. What he discovers draws him into a bizarre mess of prisoners, politics, and attempted murder that makes him realise what he’s been missing.

Falling in love isn’t hard. Trying to convince someone else you’re worth loving despite your crazy family and the people trying to kill you? That’s a whole other can of worms.

I really enjoyed this book. I'll admit when it opened it took me a bit to get used to the author's style. I never read Lindsey Black before so I knew this was a possibility. But I caught on quickly and just enjoyed the ride.

There are so many characters in this book. We have Taylor, who is an identical twin with Clay. Both are part of the Riot Squad. It's how Taylor meets Sietta and how the insanity begins. Of course, you know the second you meet Sietta that something is wrong. You also know that Taylor isn't one to sit on his butt and ignore it.

What Sietta has endured in his life is beyond heartbreaking.  Truly heartbreaking. And if it wasn't for Micah, Sietta's younger brother, lord only knows if Sietta would have been saved.

Taylor's family is insane. Really insane. From all the brothers and sisters to the niece and nephew. Of course, Sietta and Micah love them and are brought into the fold without question. There were times I was shocked at the family's antics but as you read on and see them all together many times, it's natural.

Clay and Taylor's twin thing wasn't intuition or anything. They have been inseparable their whole lives but they didn't need it. It just was. Of course, Clay is in a relationship and then Tay meets Si and things get different.

This wasn't so much a mystery as it was suspenseful at times, full of humor and insanity, and some serious action.

It's a great entertaining read!
