    I have been dying for Pierce's story and this did not disappoint! Pierce's world changes drastically when his dad dies, which forces Pierce back to Portland, where he grew up and swore he would never return. The day he comes back, the love he left behind 9 years ago comes to him for help after her little sister disappears. Sutton and Pierce are forced to work together and relive the past that Pierce left behind. Sutton is awesome. She's a super strong female character, and I loved her right from I have been dying for Pierce's story and this did not disappoint! Pierce's world changes drastically when his dad dies, which forces Pierce back to Portland, where he grew up and swore he would never return. The day he comes back, the love he left behind 9 years ago comes to him for help after her little sister disappears. Sutton and Pierce are forced to work together and relive the past that Pierce left behind. Sutton is awesome. She's a super strong female character, and I loved her right from the start. She never takes any crap from anyone. She stands up to Pierce and doesn't let him just push her away. Pierce starts off as an idiot. Sutton would've followed him anywhere 9 years ago, and he was dumb to let her go. Now, she's there asking him for help, the same Sutton he left all those years ago but grown up, and he is still denying his feelings! Pierce is adjusting to his new role as the boss, taking over his dad's company and trying to learn his new role as his life was just upended. The reason Sutton turned to Pierce is because her younger sister is missing and the circumstances could mean that Sutton and her family are also in danger. Pierce moves Sutton in with him, and things go from bad to worse for him as he realizes he's always loved her and those feelings aren't going anywhere. As they delve deeper into Claire's disappearance, Pierce and Sutton discover this is more then just a simple disappearance. There are layers and layers to what's happening, and getting Claire back is going to be harder then they thought. I love the layers to the story, and how this story was beginning to be set up in the previous books of this series. The group is in a whole giant ball of mess, and in every story, another layer is added and exposed. I love Pierce and Sutton. This might be my favorite couple. Sutton is just as bad**s as the boys, and even better, she's a hacker with some mad computer skills. Pierce and Sutton fall back into their old routine, both in a better place to be together now, rather then 9 years ago. The sting of leaving is still there, but 9 years apart hasn't lessened the fact that they are soulmates who both never moved on. If your going to read any of the stories in the series, this one is awesome! Pierce and Sutton's story isn't as interconnected to the others, so it's definitely a stand alone. I highly recommend the series, it's a roller coaster of emotions, but definitely worth the ride!

    Love & Corruption - J. A. Owenby This was my first book by J. A. Owenby and I am very happy to say this is well deserving of 5 stars. One of the best second chance stories I have read. It is obvious from the start that Pierce has still not gotten over his love for Sutton and so when he has to not only deal with the sudden loss of his father, he needs to come to terms with Sutton being his new client. The story contains a lot of emotion for both Pierce and Sutton to deal with. Pierce having to dea Love & Corruption - J. A. Owenby This was my first book by J. A.

The story contains a lot of emotion for both Pierce and Sutton to deal with. Pierce having to deal his father’s death and taking over his father’s business, and Sutton’s sister disappearing, the two of them have a lot of left over feelings they need to work out from their previous relationship. It is obvious that as hard as they might try to deny them, they still have feelings for each other. There were twists and turns that took the story in directions one sometimes didn’t count on. Add a very hot relationship that is being rebuilt, the story kept the reader on the edge at times. I very much enjoyed also meeting Pierce’s buddies Redd and ZW. I am looking forward to reading what has happened during Pierce & Sutton’s wedding and what happens between Redd & Claire.

    Oh this was good! I fell for Pierce way back in the beginning books and now to see his backstory and where he came and from...whew! Sutton has always been his, even when she wasn’t. She holds the part of him that no one else can see or touch, his heart. Now with devastating news, she shows up on his doorstep looking for help he can’t turn her away. Now it’s a race to find her missing sister and to figure out he can be around her again without falling deeper. It’s hot and action filled. Such a go Oh this was good!

    Loved this book!!! After reading the previous books in this series, Pierce was the character you didn't know much of how he ticked but always wondered about.

    Wow awesome This was an awesome book. The second chance epic. Sutton and Pierce have always belonged together they just had to take a break. Brought back together by a kidnapping can they find each other again. You have to read it and see JA keeps the suspense going on every page. It’s definitely worth the read.

    Wow! 5 stars aren’t enough! I loved this book, and I was hooked from the first page. There were so many twists and turns with lots of steamy scenes. I loved Pierce from the Love & Ruin series and was so excited to see him get an HEA. I’m a huge fan of suspense, and this storyline kept me guessing until the end. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

    Glad to get to know more about Pierce and see him get his HEA. This book is different from the others in the Love & Ruin series but just as great. Lots of twists and turns, plenty of romance, and steamy passion. Captivating from start to finish. Well worth a second read.

    Four stars! I really liked the characters especially the guys. Also, the way Pierce and Sutton were able to have a second chance. However, I would have preferred to have Sutton's point of view also. Four stars! I really liked the characters especially the guys. Also, the way Pierce and Sutton were able to have a second chance.

    After going through the last few books with Pierce being so stoic and hard, seeing his loving side is amazing! Even with the things going on is Sutton’s life, they still find their way back to one another. I cannot wait to see what happens next though. Seems Redd has his hands full already.

    I'm so happy that Pierce got his own book and his HEA! I adored him and how he was with Gemma and Hendrix in the Love & Ruin books, but I absolutely loved seeing him come into his own as a leader, business owner and eventually lover and husband in this book. Hopefully we will get to see more of Pierce and his team in future J.A. Owenby books. I'm so happy that Pierce got his own book and his HEA!
