I was really looking forward to this book to learn more about Nash. Well, I got that. Much of this book revolves around the very personal and intimate thoughts of Nash and Marissa. It's been a while since I read the first two books in this series, but this book seemed to have less action and more thinking from the main characters. Written in first person, with alternating POV's from Nash and Marissa, the reader gets up close and personal with both of them. I was surprised to end up liking Marissa. She makes a dramatic turnaround in her personality. There was a strength to her character that I really liked. And some of the best scenes in the book consisted of Marissa shedding her past persona for something better. I loved that she stood up to her father and became an accomplished, recognized attorney in her own right. I knew that I would like Nash, in spite of his crusty attitude and his focus on revenge. What I liked about his story was that he changed too, for the better. I wasn't thrilled with his behavior in New Orleans, although the rest of the smexy scenes between Marissa and Nash were fairly hot and spicy.I was disappointed with the pacing of this through the middle section and the lack of real action. To me, this was more a story of these two characters coming to terms with their own feelings, and not so much resolving the gangster-related story line, which takes a back seat to the relationship between Nash and Marissa.I also missed any real presence of Olivia and Cash. There were a few scenes, but it needed more action to involve these other characters. So overall, an okay read.
