Genre: Contemporary Romance
Sadie Townsend is known by all as The Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated Drug Lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder. But one inebriated night, she shows the Real Sadie to the undercover agent she knows is investigating her father, the handsome Hector Chavez, and he knows he’ll stop at nothing to have her.
Hector makes one (huge) mistake; he waits for Sadie to come to him. Tragedy strikes and Sadie’s got a choice, she can retreat behind her Ice Fortress or she can embrace the Rock Chick/Hot Bunch World. Guided by Hector, the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch and her new gay roommates, Buddy and Ralphie, Sadie negotiates a life out from under her father’s thumb, a life that includes poison, arson and learning how to make s’mores.
This series just keeps getting better and better. It looked like it was wrapping up in the last book with Stella and Mace, and if you don't want any spoilers, don't read the epilogue in that one. I did, but I still really enjoyed Sadie and Hector. Hector is that all encompassing Latin Alpha Male. He knows what he wants and (usually) doesn't stop until he has it. But this time Hector waited for Sadie to come to him, big mistake. He didn't realize how much danger she was in until she showed up brutalized at Nightingale Investigations. After that, he made it his mission to win her over and keep her by his side forever. Sadie didn't trust anyone, she grew up as a rich, sheltered girl with no friends. So being encompassed in the Rock Chick bunch was a little scary and she fought it (at first). But when she starts to loosen up and have fun, all bets are off. Hector and Sadie's love affair is fun, hilarious, passionate, and a fantasy come true....
