Heat Rating ♥♥♥♥
September 13, 2013
Chastity really has a lot going on in her life, a stalker, a big job revamping a crappy night club and 2 men who can’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Riker is burying himself in booze and women while Nash just lives with blame and grief. That does make for an interesting story line in a lot of ways when you’re in the mood for such a story. I seriously did like these three characters and I really have to say I was proud of Chastity for standing proud and strong as she chose to stand and fight. I wish I could go into exact detail but then you would read the book because I gave it all away. I do think Nash needs to think before he speaks because his mouth before his brain takes over is utterly stupid. Riker would have been better off speaking for both him and Nash in some cases. I really am having a hard time being super critical about the brothers’ behavior because they are both just broken and have seem to have undiscovered trust issues, but then who can blame them (again read the book to find out why). The bedroom scenes when they finally get there are pretty hot and steamy and worth waiting for.
Honestly, I think that someone should really consider sticking some TNT up Desi’s ass because that man is a really piece of shit (dang it now I have to edit for publishing in Amazon, ugh). I have read a number of books by Dixie Lynn Dwyer and she certainly knows how to create some seriously twisted bad guy creeps. She is also great about how she writes her female characters. I have so many questions I would love to ask her.
I was going over my notes from my first read through of Their Greatest Treasure and found that I had written that the story was boring and that I had to take several breaks. On my second read through I felt the complete opposite, which just proves that all books are worth at least one second chance. I don’t remember what my state of mind was the first time through the story, but given the last 5 years my guess is no place pleasant. I am really super happy about the fact that I didn’t write a review after my first reading of this story because I would have been eating those words with a new review.
Book Cover Rating ☆☆☆☆☆
I think this cover is a pretty close match to the story. Maybe there is hope yet for the publishing companies who chose the covers.
Nash and Riker blame themselves for their lover’s death after losing her during an investigation. Now retired Federal Agents and entrepreneurs, they’re billionaires, and their club is turning into a dive. They try to fill their empty hearts with money, women, and even alcohol, but it’s no use, they can’t let go of the past. Chastity Malone is hired to help Riker and Nash Riley, two sexy twins with attitude. She’s reserved and untrusting, with a past and heartache of her own. By coincidence, their pasts collide, bringing them trouble and testing their fate in one another. Chastity is threatened and assaulted. She is submerged in a web of lies by coincidence. Riker and Nate must forget about the past and filter through the lies to save the one woman that completes them. But they didn’t count on one obsessed ex lover, an unsolved case, challenges to their faith, and a woman so strong, so determined to prove her innocence, she’s ready to die to prove it. Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.
