    Book Two starts out right where we left off in book one with Nolan and Lola being caught in a compromising position. When a damaging video tape hits the airwaves, Nolan fast tracks his and Lola's relationship to stop the bad publicity in it's tracks. Now a married couple Lola struggles with Nolan's brand of dominance and feelings of insecurity. With a force still out to get to Lola's mother through her, and external forces trying to put a wedge between Nolan and Lola, will these two settle into Book Two starts out right where we left off in book one with Nolan and Lola being caught in a compromising position. When a damaging video tape hits the airwaves, Nolan fast tracks his and Lola's relationship to stop the bad publicity in it's tracks. Now a married couple Lola struggles with Nolan's brand of dominance and feelings of insecurity. With a force still out to get to Lola's mother through her, and external forces trying to put a wedge between Nolan and Lola, will these two settle into married life, or be split apart for good... "But what got me hot last night, Lola, what makes me want to bury myself inside you right this minute, is the total trust you placed in me. You gave me authority over your body, and that’s sexy to me. That’s what does it for me." I enjoyed this one just SLIGHTLY less than book one. I felt the whole "baddie" storyline got pushed aside for a whole lot of Fifty Shades of Grey type stuff. Now, I am not complaining mind you because Nolan was HOT. This was actually one of the better books I have read that deals with domestic discipline and I found it refreshing that Lola struggled with Nolan's expectations on that front. Usually in books the heroine just falls at the Doms feet with a breathy "YES SIR" That said, I also found Lola's immaturity annoying at times. Of course she is only 23, but sometimes her behavior frustrated me. "I want to invade every part of your body, pretty girl,” he growled. “I want to unlock the secrets of your mind and conquer your will. I want to strip you down until you’re completely bared to me, totally raw, completely vulnerable, one hundred percent mine for the taking" Nolan was a fantastic hero and I loved his devotion to the heroine. I did find his constant PUSHING PUSHING PUSHING for more a little frustrating at times. It felt like he was in hyperspeed with his and Lola's relationship, and she was still trying to come to terms with him and his wants. This caused misunderstandings, and feelings like Nolan was riding roughshod over Lola on occasion. Which in turn caused ME to say to my tablet "OMG let the girl take a breath already!" Overall though, this was a fantastic duet with great writing, enjoying characters (for the most part). It needed a better epilogue in my opinion and there were a couple storylines I needed more closure with. l wanted a look at Nolan and Lola a bit farther into the future, but I have a feeling we may get more books in this series as it was hinted at that Nolan's brother Cash was interested in Lola's BFF. So maybe the loose ends will be tied up in those??

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    This is book two of Nolan and Lola's story so make sure you read The Southern Gentlemen: Protective Instincts first. Book 2 starts where we left off in book 1 with Nolan and Lola traveling back to the Campaign trail. Book 1 ended with a cliffhanger and I knew things were about to blow up. I can honestly say that this book was just as exciting as book 1. There is still a plot against Lola to cause a scandal for her moms campaign. Nolan is still the hot, sexy, intimidating man protecting her while This is book two of Nolan and Lola's story so make sure you read The Southern Gentlemen: Protective Instincts first. Book 2 starts where we left off in book 1 with Nolan and Lola traveling back to the Campaign trail. Book 1 ended with a cliffhanger and I knew things were about to blow up. I can honestly say that this book was just as exciting as book 1. There is still a plot against Lola to cause a scandal for her moms campaign. Nolan is still the hot, sexy, intimidating man protecting her while making his goal to own her. He's 38, divorced and has already lived enough to know that Lola is the one. He just needs to convince her. She's young and never been in a Dominant/Submissive relationship. It's scary to her and she doesn't know if it's for her. I love the fact that Lola isn't just bending to Nolan's rules. She fights him the whole way with what I believe to be a realistic view of a 23 year old being introduced to the D/S lifestyle for the first time. I never really understood in other books when the heroine would blindly accept the D/S relationship. How can you not question a brand new way of life so blindly just because the man is good looking. I also loved the fact that the author showed that Nolan makes mistakes and owns up to them. That's one of my issues with the D/S lifestyle. It comes across to me that the woman needs to be brought to heel while the mans word is obeyed with out question whether he's right or wrong. I don't think I'll ever be a fan of the D/S lifestyle and usually stay away from books that have it but I can appreciate it in a story like this one for the reasons I just mentioned. I truly enjoyed this book series and highly recommend it! I look forward to what Sweden Reese publishes next! ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    ~3.5 stars~ The Southern Gentleman books are Sweden Reese's debut novels and what a way to come into this community. These books have the perfect mix of a dirty mouth dominant and sweet Southern Charm. Since they are being release simultaneously, this review is for both. Lola Randall is the daughter of a female U.S. President candidate who might just end up at the first woman president.

Blin ~3.5 stars~ The Southern Gentleman books are Sweden Reese's debut novels and what a way to come into this community. These books have the perfect mix of a dirty mouth dominant and sweet Southern Charm. Since they are being release simultaneously, this review is for both. Lola Randall is the daughter of a female U.S. President candidate who might just end up at the first woman president. Because of this status, Lola becomes a target for those who might not want her mother to win the election. Blinded by her own desire of freedom, Lola takes off across the country, deserting her mother's campaign and unknowingly putting herself in more danger. Nolan Jackson is what they call a "fixer." He is hired by Lola's prestigious parents to track down Lola and put her back safely with them and back in the limelight for her mother's campaign. What should have been an easy job has now quickly turned into a very dangerous job. Nolan's sole purpose is to protect Lola, which is part of his job. What he didn't realize what just how quickly the job becomes personal. Lola has caught his attention. Will he be able to stay professional or will the lines get blurred? Man, that was a wild ride! There is enough suspense and plot twists that it kept my mind running all over the place. Some things I could sense were coming and others hit me like a mac truck. I liked the fact that there was so much more than just a dominant/submissive relationship between Nolan and Lola. The storyline of Nola being a target because of a presidential campaign really did help add to the overall book and their relationship dynamic. Here's the thing. Nolan falls fast and hard and I typically don't like insta-love. So what helped balance this out for me was the fact that Lola was a little bit more resistant. Sure, she might have fallen quickly as well but the struggle with her understanding it logically made it better. Then you add in the fact that Nolan has the perfect mix of hot, dominant, dirty mouth alpha and sweet Southern charm and I felt like I was getting a well balanced story. I also enjoyed how much Nolan has to explain his desire of being a dominant relationship. With Lola having no idea what it is about, it caused him to really have to help her understand. "I want to unlock the secrets of your mind and conquer your will. I want to strip you down until you're completely bared to me, totally raw, completely vulnerable, one hundred percent mine for the taking." Well, OK. That sums that up, right? Overall, I think that these books are great debut novels from Sweden and I look forward to seeing more from her. If you are looking for a fast paced, suspenseful novel with one very dominant, dirty alpha then these books just might be for you.

    3.5 Stars * I am going to review the two book together, so this review is a general review not specific to one or the other, but specific to the entire The Southern Gentleman story.* I am struggling to review this one and I am not entirely sure why. Maybe it is because it's full of action and suspense. Maybe it's because it is full of sexy and romantic moments. Maybe it's because there are so many things that are going on it's hard to give you much background with out giving away the story.

Maybe it's because there are so many things that are going on it's hard to give you much background with out giving away the story. Maybe it is because I can't decide if I loved the story or just liked it. Let's talk about what I loved. I loved the concept of the story. I loved the idea of America's 'First Daughter' falling in love with a disgruntled disillusioned American Veteran. A man who has taken his disillusionment and turned it into a profitable business by taking on the ugly side of American politics and society and becoming their 'Fixer' I loved that not only is there the juxtaposition between the two main characters but also that the story revolves around their D/s relationship. I loved that the author clearly did her research and took the D/s relationship between the two seriously, that she treated it with honesty and care. I loved how well it was written, I loved that there is witty and intelligence to the story. I loved Nolan, I loved the mystery and suspense, the fact that there is a true story beneath the obvious story of the couples relationship. After all that you must be wondering why I also just like the story. Well, I hate to say that I felt like I didn't get to connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. I think so much of the story revolved around the D/s and then the background story that we don't get all the time we need to get true development of both Nolan and Lola, for me mainly Lola. I wanted more of Nolan's story from his time in the Army, I wanted him to find closure. I wanted him to be a little more understanding of Lola's apprehension, he pushes her hard into the relationship because he's fallen fast and hard, because it's his nature, because there seems to be the idea that with his age his magically more mature and knowledgeable about life. On that same token Lola takes her youngness to a new level. I get she's in her early 20's but that doesn't automatically mean you are immature or incapable of making sound decisions which you wouldn't know from the story. Overall though the fact is this is a good story. This is a well written story. It's a fast paced, action packed, sexy romance. I think anyone looking for a good BDSM based story will be really happy with The Southern Gentleman. I definitely suggest that you purchase both books at once sine they are both out. Book one ends on a cliffhanger and while it takes quite a while to get to how the cliffhanger plays out in book two you won't want to be waiting to see where things go. I am really looking forward to seeing where else Sweden Reese might go now that she's gotten her debut novel under her belt, if these first two books are any indication we have some amazing books coming in our future. ~ Happy Reading ~

    I enjoyed this conclusion to Lola and Nolan's story. But, I am still annoyed with Nolan, I still feel as if he took advantage of Lola's immaturity, and that still creeps me out. It's not their age difference, it's the difference in their maturity levels that bothers me. Lola does stand up for herself more, which I like, but she does it in a kind of immature way, by running away, rather than talking to Nolan as an adult would. I also like that Nolan owned up to some of his mistakes with Lola, but I enjoyed this conclusion to Lola and Nolan's story.

I also like that Nolan owned up to some of his mistakes with Lola, but I still feel as if he just ran roughshod over her with no real attempt to understand the fact that immaturity did not allow her to really comprehend or even consent to the kind of relationship he dragged her into. He simply took over without respecting her wishes, he never even gave a thought to her wishes. That's the crux of my dislike of his character, Nolan simply took, he never respected Lola's wishes, or the fact that she's too immature to enter into the kind of relationship he craved so much. She was like this shiny prize he desired, and he simply took her, rather than taking the time to get to know her and respect her. Yes, I believe he loved her, but in a really selfish way. And that really, really bothers me. The action and the suspense is taken up a notch, and I did enjoy that. The ultimate betrayal was sort of heartbreaking, but not completely a surprise. And I like that Camila and Cash are in for quick mentions. I would love to read a book about those two! The sex is really hot, as it is in the first part of their story, and it's a redeeming factor, as is the fact that this conclusion is well written, too. I like that there was an epilogue, but it would have been nice if it had taken place further into their relationship.

As we near Election Eve and move through some surprising twists and turns, we finally get some answers to all of the suspicious happenings and, let me tell you, I was actually shocked! And the surprises kept coming too! Again, the writing in this book was amazing. Ms. Reese is a talented new author who keeps her audience enraptured straight through until the end! I just hope that this isn’t really the last time we will be seeing our H and h **hint hint. So many possibilities! *ARC kindly received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

That is what makes the book a great suspense....Sara     http://www.boundlessbookreviews.com https://www.facebook.com/BBReviews

Throughout this book the author gives the reader such a strong sense of who these characters are and how they will react to any given situation. And yet this author still managed to surprise the reader with all of the little twists and turns that no one could have seen coming. I would definitely recommend this book to any readers who loves erotica, D/S, romance, or suspense stories. And I would definitely recommend this author to anyone who wants to believe that the characters they are reading are real, and who loves to see the characters emotions/actions playing out in their minds. This is not a book/series/author you will want to miss out on.

Their love making scenes were smoking hot, and erotic. You get to see Nolan in his whole glory: typical alpha with one sexy filthy mouth. Nolan goes after what he wants and protects her above all else. Lola tended to act irrationally and her insecurities fuel her but to be honest I couldn't blame her. Nolan is older and has been around the bend several times whereas, Lola has lived a more controlled life in the public eye. She learns from her mistakes and you get to see a young woman finally finding her way. I really enjoyed the book: it was fast paced, sexy with lots of suspense. I would definitely recommend it.

He's fighting for Lola's heart and submission. He'll sacrifice it all to rescue her from a conspiracy to steal the election that may cost her life. I was able to binge read these books. A few twists kept the suspense going. I am not a huge fan of 24/7 D/s relationships, but I still enjoyed the books. I will look for Ms. Reese's next book.

    Holy thrill ride! I am so glad Sweden Reese released this, the conclusion of The Southern Gentleman simultaneously with book one or I might have gone crazy waiting. But, I didn't, so never fear! True Consequences is the follow up book to Protective Instinct and picks up immediately following the end of book 1. Nolan and Lola are back and hotter than ever. Lola is sassy, but Nolan is perfect for her. Despite the 15 year age difference, their relationship really works and it is a scorcher, people! Holy thrill ride!

However, both parts of the novel are bing released simultaneously – Hurrah. Its something I’m always publicly wishing for, that if books have to be divided up, release the whole story together or at least within a few weeks. Stories where I have months – years even sometimes – between parts lose all the build up, the excitement, the craving for knowing what's going to happen next. So thank you Sweden :-) A huge thank you, for releasing the story this way!!! So we ended book one with Nolan and Lola finally giving in to the attraction, with Nolan giving Lola what they both want, a spanking, some discipline and a good effing....not knowing that some sleazy pap had filmed it. When the story hits the press, along with all sorts of allegations it really is a case of sh it meet fan. Lola can’t believe the way everything has been twisted, its disaster for her mum, disaster for Nolan if people believe the line that's being peddled about abuse, about him supposedly beating her up. She doesn’t know what to do, she’s out of her depth, loves what they did, has incredibly strong feelings for Nolan and doesn’t want his business to get hurt, doesn’t want her mum to get caught up in the scandal, has to convince her parents that she was consenting, that Nolan isn’t coercing her to take part, has to persuade dad that he doesn't need to put a hit out on Nolan... Nolan can’t see it as just being a stray pap got lucky, after all the things that have been happening to Lola in an effort to damage her mums campaign. He’s determined to track down who’s behind all these things, but time is running out, there’s only days left til the election and they need to refute this latest PR disaster ASAP. He comes up with a unique suggestion..... I love Nolan, its clear he knows exactly what he wants, he’s had time to learn, to find what does and doesn’t work for him, and if things were different maybe he’d give Lola a bit longer, but they aren’t and he can’t.  Lola, she seems so young in some way as she’s been kept out of the kind of things most of us do in out teens, that life’s learning curve that lets us make mistakes, lets us grow and find our feet. With her parents all too public position she’s always been kept out of anything that might create the slightest scandal, and now at 23 she’s finally having a rebellion. She doesn’t want to hurt her parents, is right behind her mum’s campaign, but she’s tired of being controlled, wants to make some decisions for herself. So far though they’ve put her in some possibly life threatening scenes, certainly ones that hold great danger for her, and its only been a few days ;-) Given the way she’s trying to wrest some control of her life from her parents you’d think she would resent Nolan and his need to always make the decisions, his need to have her submit to him 24/7, and yet his control is very different to what she’s used to. Its done with her wants and needs in mind, whereas her parents have their own positions in the forefront of what she’s allowed to do.  I can see why she and Nolan fit so well together, its not something that would work for me, but for Lola and Nolan its a real need not just a desire. I do find that a little hard to understand, how people could enjoy that, and yet they do, and my mantra has always been anything goes so long as both are happy and no-one else is harmed. 24/7 D/s is something that works for many, that I don’t really understand and certainly wouldn’t want it doesn’t really matter. In this book Nolan and Lola do need it,  but they have to be careful as they are right up there in the public eye. Its cleverly handled, and I enjoyed the way it was brought in to a story that's already pretty drama filled.  I really enjoyed this book too, its got politics but not so much I’m confused, ( like I said in review of part one UK politics is all I know), it’s packed with drama and excitement which all feels very real. I don’t like when drama gets so intense and complex that I’m lost, can’t really understand what’s going on, but here I was “with” all the action, feeling for the characters as it played out.  I loved seeing Nolan’s family and they way they interacted, that brought another facet of Nolan into the front, loved the way they took to Lola, and the way she fitted in so well right from the start. Loved the sex scenes and BDSM, its not hard-core stuff, more domination and control, than actual whippings and stuff that sometimes comes within this genre.  Its got a psychological aspect to it that I liked working out. I was happy that the drama was realistic, not OTT but things I could really imagine happening, and that's very important to me, I have to feel the people and the story could be genuine, feel that I’m getting to know the characters, to work out what’s happening, to puzzle out who’s behind things. I didn’t work it out – that came as a real surprise, BTW!! Its a great duology, do read part one first, don’t just jump in to part two, as you really won’t follow all the story, won’t get the best from it. I look forward to reading more from Sweden.

I enjoyed the light dom/sub undertones although I wish I had known “southern gentleman” stood sexist alpha male. At some point, it’s just too much. All in all, it was a an enjoyable suspenseful read.

We learn a bit more about the characters in the 2nd book of the series.

This book certainly didn't disappoint. We learn a bit more about the characters in the 2nd book of the series. I love Nolan's character - he has a big heart, loves his family, struggles with a past traumatic experience from his military days, is a Dominant and of course hot. Lola really starts to become more confident in herself and is still strong-headed but yields to her submissive side for Nolan. She does come off a bit immature at times in the book and I found myself not liking her as much. But in the end, she regrets her mistakes and learns her lesson. The sex scenes were hot in this book, but unlike the one and only scene in the first book that made it worth the wait, this one has a lot more and at times I think it cheapened the story line because of their abundance. But they're hot, so I forgive the overindulgence. The book does end with some players still unknown in the 'ruin Mrs. Randall's campaign' plot, so I hope those come to light in future books. I also can't wait to see if a book is written with Cash/Camila - I'd love to see them together. And the main antagonist of the story - boy I didn't see that one coming!!! That totally threw me and kept me entrenched in reading the rest of the book to see how it all played out. (view spoiler)[The book picks up where the first one left off - Nolan and Lola have been videotaped in a scandalous situation, but it takes a few days before it becomes public. In the meantime, Nolan takes Lola to meet his traditional southern family and of course they all love her. Nolan starts to fall fast for Lola, marriage is proposed, but Lola thinks they still don't know each other that well. They leave his family and make their way to Atlanta. Then the video is made public and Lola is humiliated, Nolan is furious, but they both agree that getting married will turn this into a love story instead of a scandal. Her parents aren't the biggest fans of Nolan, but agree the marriage will help distract people from the scandal of the video. The wedding is beautiful and it seems as though they'll live happily ever after. But that's not the case. Someone is still out to get Lola, Nolan's ex-wife Evey (ugh, I hate her) tries to screw with Lola's head and next thing you know, Lola wants a divorce, Nolan is hurt and then Lola is kidnapped. Because we know the HEA is coming, of course Nolan battles his demons and comes to save Lola and they lived HEA. (hide spoiler)] Overall, I love this series and can't wait to read more by the author. I still think Book 1 was better, but Book 2 definitely didn't disappoint and still left me satisfied. I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

If you're a fan of action packed romance, then this series is must read for you!

    Review is for both book 1 and book 2. It's hard to believe that The Southern Gentleman books are this author's debut novels because they are so damn good! She had me hooked right from the start with fabulous characters, slick dialogue and an intriguing storyline. I found Ms Reese's writing style very easy to read and the story was perfectly paced.

I'm just glad that both books are out now as after the unexpected, scandalous ending of book one, Protective Instinct, I would have hated having to wait for the next part of Lola and Nolan's story. I dived straight into book two, True Consequences, and it proved to be even better than the first book! Lola Randall's mother is in the running to become President of the United States of America, and Lola is finding the media attention overwhelming. She also needs a break from her overbearing parents so she ditches her security and the campaign. Nolan Jackson is a professional 'fixer' and is tasked with finding Lola and bringing her back to her parents and the presidential campaign before the press find out she's gone AWOL. Nolan is a real alpha male and his chemistry with young, innocent Lola is explosive. Can Nolan keep Lola safe from political enemies who will do anything to keep her mother out of the White House? And can he win Lola's heart? I absolutely loved this book, there were so many layers to the story and they were woven together perfectly. The balance of suspense storyline to romance storyline was just right in my opinion and both were equally as compelling. Lola was very naive and sheltered and I must admit I got a little frustrated with her at times, but I still really liked her. She was the ideal match for jaded Nolan, they were great together. I'm really looking forward to reading more of this author's work in the future, as these books are awesome. The Southern Gentleman books one and two both receive five big, sparkling stars! I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

    First of all I read this duet in one breath. I absolutely couldn’t put it down. Secondly this book has been a hell of a rollercoaster ride until the very end. Why? You can find everything from tension and betrayal, dominance and submission to love and feelings so deeply seated that you couldn't believe these could even exist. The story seems almost real. I had the feeling like I've been real part of this story. I was silent bystander in middle of the storm though. And you know the feeling when y First of all I read this duet in one breath.

I had the feeling like I've been real part of this story. I was silent bystander in middle of the storm though. And you know the feeling when you have to put the book down because you love your family and you have to do something together. But right at this moment I could cry because I just wanted to know what happens next. These books were like addiction and I was the addict. I guess I need to search for AA. lol so to sums it all....I loved every fucking word and can only tell that the duet was AMAZING. I can only recommend it to all peeps who loves BSDM mixed with politics crime. Nolan falls for Lola fast but is she willing to be his perfect submissive? While she has always been fighting for women's rights somehow his spell is taking over and she's drawn to him like a moth to the flame. Their journey back to the campaing continues but it´s not easy with all the hurdles and attacs against them. Could they both stay away from all complications and arrive back on time? Would they be able to fight for their feelings?

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first book. The writing was excellent and I very much enjoyed the back story. My problem was with Nolan. I can't pretend to know what a D/s relationship is like as it's not really something I have had any experience with but I do enjoy reading about it.

One thing I do know is that this type of relationship requires a great deal of trust and communication something that Nolan continually went on about but failed to act on it. He continually humiliated and embarrassed Lola and failed to communicate with her. There was no way that the trust between the two was even close to what it should be as they had only known each other a few days! He told her numerous times that she was free to choose her own path and then told her she couldn't take the place at Harvard because he couldn't or rather wouldn't relocate! Also when the 'scandal' hit the news it was all about saving his career and his reputation her humiliation and embarrassment came second. He also kept on about how young she was but still continued to push her past her boundaries knowing that she really didn't know what they hell she wanted. So all in all it's three stars for this and all of those are for the quality of the writing and the sex scenes were hot but Nolan came across as a monumental jerk rather than an alpha male!

He has a few hang ups and will not fly, so when he is hired to find the missing Lola, he starts driving across the country to find her. He is totally unprepared for the visceral attraction he feels for her at first sight. Before long, he is forced to use all of his skills to keep Lola safe, while still fighting his attraction to her. This is a very fast paced book that romantic suspense fans will love. While it is classified as erotic suspense, and does contain explicit sex, many romance/romantic suspense novels contain just as much explicit sex without the erotic label, however the sex in this book is naughty and definitely not vanilla. Book two does contain more explicitness than book one did. This is book two of a two part series and ends with a HEA. If you haven't already read book one, I would strongly encourage you to read it before this book.

Lola and Nolen traveling back to the campaign headquarters. Whilst travelling back, a scandal happens involving the beautiful couple. Forced to make a decision on their relationship, before Lola is ready too. Lola is struggling with understanding what a submissive is. She knows she is turned on by it, but believes it's wrong to feel this way. Also, on the way back we get a better understanding of Nolen. We are introduce to his family (holly hotness). I loved hearing about his family and the way they interacted. We also found out the reason behind Nolen not wanting to fly (He doesn’t want Lola know and thinking is he weak). Whilst all this is happening, Nolen is still trying to protect the one he loves. True Consequences has a balance of romance, BDSM and suspense. The characters are realistic and well written. For me there was nothing I didn’t like and I can’t wait to see what Sweden Reese has install for us next (Hopefully Camila and Cash – hint hint).

We know this from her words, thoughts and actions, but he kept pushing. I sincerely hope that anyone reading this has been previously exposed to healthy BDSM literature, because this was NOT the way I should be. Lola is 15 years younger than him, and I'd consider everything he does in this book before the point I quit, to be coercion, abuse of power, and generally being a jerk. The feeling of a fun road trip that I had when reading book 1 was completely lost in this installment and I can't make it through any longer.

    I was so drawn into Nolan and Lola's story I HAD to keep going, after reading book one. I didn't even take the time to review book one, first, like I always do. I blew through these pages. This series is full of suspense, thrills and one hell of a roller coaster ride. Lola and Nolan came together in the first book, when she decided she wanted more than what she had. Her father was a presidential candidate and she broke under the pressure. Lola, ditched her secret service agents and took off.

That's when Nolan was hired to bring her back... the story gets even better in second one. I'm addicted to Nolan and the possessive domineering alpha male that he is. This may not be everyone's ideal read, but it was for me. The way Nolan just HAD to have Lola, even when she was lying to herself that she didn't, just kept me zeroed in. Nolan may be a hard ass, but damn he's a man who gets what he wants and he will fight like hell to get it. Even if it kills him. But then again, that's what loves about right?
