I’m that
Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie
slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even
more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damage,
pampered meets punctured.

So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion.
Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I’m okay with being
used because, from where I’m sitting, the other side of the tracks have never
looked so good.

He’s standing in the doorway, one hand on the sweatpants that hang just below his chiselled hips and the other leans on the frame. The tattoos that mark his flesh are
vivid against his bare skin, making the blues of his eyes shine.
He flashes a lopsided smile my way. “Took you long enough.”
“I don’t drive like a bat out of hell,” I laugh, stepping past him. “Did you shower
“Yeah. I smelled like gym floors.”             
“As long as you don’t smell like gym whores,” I say, setting the bags on the table in the kitchen.
His laugh is contagious and I feel myself smiling. A set of arms cage me in from behind, grasping the table on both sides of me. My skin breaks out in a shiver as his
lips find the sensitive spot behind my ear.
His face buries in the crook of my neck and he takes a long, leisurely breath. “You
smell so good.”
“Keep doing that,” I say, relaxing my head onto his chest.
“Talking with your mouth against me.”
“You like this?” he asks all breathily so that each word whispers across my skin.
My eyes fall closed as I relish in this moment of nothing but him. “No, I love this.”
“Can I tell you a little secret?”
“As long as you keep talking, you can tell me whatever you want.”
He chuckles, dotting kisses up and down my neck. “I love this too, feeling your
body give up the fight of the day and let me take over.” He turns me in his
arms so I’m facing him. “I love that you trust me enough to let your shoulders
sink out of that perfect posture you walk around with.”
As he reaches up and undoes the elastic in my hair, I watch his features soften. He
moves carefully, unwrapping the tie from the twisted mess in my locks, careful
not to pull.
“There,” he says, cupping the back of my head through my long tresses, “that’s better.”
“You don’t like my hair up?”
“Not like you had it. You look to lunching-y,” he says, wrinkling his nose.
“Yes,” he grins.
“You are too cute.”
“You are too fucking sexy.”
Reaching up, I swipe the pad of my thumb over the cut above his eye. He flinches, but just for a second. “What happened?”
“Bond’s right hand.”
“I hate him.”
“So do I,” he snickers.
“Let’s get some ice for it.”
He leans in, his brows tugging together. “Let’s not.” His eyes hood as he takes me in,
his tongue darting out and wetting his lips. My knees weaken, my body humming
with delight at his reaction.
“I want to take care of you,” I whisper, although that’s really on the backburner now.
“Let me baby you.”
Instead, he lifts me up and places me on the table. My stomach clenches as he positions himself between my thighs, my sundress curling at my waist. I ring my legs
around him, pulling him so close that the soft cotton of his sweatpants rubs
against my opening.
He looks down. “You aren’t wearing panties.”



Eeeeek, we finally have Camilla’s book, and it is everything I hoped it would be and more. With the previous 4 books being about the Landry brothers, it was great to finally get ‘Swink’ and her integrating her new man into the family…or not.

From the previous books, we knew there was ‘someone’ in Cam’s life and in this story we finally meet the elusive Dominic Hughes and find out far more about him.

With Camilla being the youngest of the family (a whole 2 minutes younger than her twin sister!!), she has always been mothered and protected by them all. The brothers are fiercely protective of their little sister, and will not stand for anything other than what they deem to be the right thing for her.

But who and what her brothers have an opinion on, isn’t necessarily what Camilla thinks is best for herself. But of course throughout this book they continue to be their overbearing selves and stick their noses into places it’s not necessarily wanted….!

Dom is a wonderful character. He’s from a completely different world to the Landry family, the glitz, glamour, stuffy country clubs, charity events and money. He lives pay check to pay check, working a number of jobs, helping out his brother, and spending time at the gym preparing for fights to give him a bit of a bonus from time to time. But he is also fiercely protective, loyal and proud.

Dom has a great relationship with his brother Nate and his young nephew. With a dark and emotional past, Dom is struggling to move on and see the light at the end of the tunnel, or be willing to let Cam in more than she already is.

This whole story is beautiful, and possibly my favourite book of the series so far! There is a lot of emotion in this book, and we really get the see the relationship between Dom and Cam develop, experience their feelings and their fears. I loved the dynamics between Dom and the rest of the brothers, and how everything develops. With just the right amount of drama and angst, this book really was superb!

As always with Adriana Locke’s stories, I spent much time laughing, chucking and generally feeling happy, but she also managed to get that emotion out of me which required me to need a tissue or two as well! A superb final book in this series, and I can’t wait to see what she brings us next with a potential new spin-off series!!
