GENRE: Contemporary Romance
The last thing I expect when I walk into The Hawkeye Club is to fall head over heels in lust. It’s supposed to be a rescue mission. I have to get my baby sister off the pole, into some clothes, and out of the grasp of the pussy peddler who somehow manipulated her into stripping. But the moment I see Savage Hawke and verbally spar with him, my ability to remain rational flies out the window and my libido takes center stage. I’ve never wanted a relationship—my time is better spent focusing on taking down the scum running this city—but what I want and what I need are apparently two different things.
Danika Eriksson storms into my office in her high heels and on her high horse. Her holier-than-thou attitude and accusations should offend me, but instead, I can’t get her out of my head or my heart. Her incomparable drive, take-no-prisoners attitude, and blatant honesty captivate me and hold me prisoner. I should steer clear, but my self-preservation instinct is apparently dead—which is exactly what our relationship will be once she knows everything. It’s only a matter of time.
The truth doesn’t always set you free. Sometimes, it just royally screws you.

Savage Hawke is such a hot name. It exudes confidence and just makes the man attached to it sound fierce. And he is. Dominant and hot in every way. He also has a secret.
Danika Eriksson is a beautiful and determined woman. She has balls of steel and the sex drive to go along with the confidence she portrays. And going along with her chosen profession as an investigative reporter she also has secret. The question comes down to will those secrets keep them together or push them apart? The relationship between Dani and Savage is full on, hot and sexy except one little thing…and I can’t talk about it because DUH! No spoilers. (Sorry, not sorry)
I enjoyed the story line although I felt tossed around a bit. Around 40% the story almost dragged for me and while it was quickly revived and then I felt like someone pushed fast forward. Overall though, I enjoyed the characters. I feel like they were well developed and real. I felt like smacking Caroline a few times (because I would have if she was MY friend) and I think Skye needs a good reminder that she’s an adult. I imagine that will be addressed in the next book in the series Tortured Skye which I have already placed on my TBR. Good start to a series!
Gwyn McNamee is an attorney, writer, wife, and mother (to one human baby and two fur babies). Originally from the Midwest, Gwyn relocated to her husband’s home town of Las Vegas in 2015 and is enjoying her respite from the cold and snow. Gwyn has been writing down her crazy stories and ideas for years and finally decided to share them with the world. She loves to write stories with a bit of suspense and action mingled with romance and heat.
When she isn’t either writing or voraciously devouring any books she can get her hands on, Gwyn is busy adding to her tattoo collection, golfing, and stirring up trouble with her perfect mix of sweetness and sarcasm (usually while wearing heels). An admitted shoe whore, Gwyn’s closet rivals Carrie Bradshaw’s and is constantly expanding.
Gwyn’s debut novel, Savage Collision, the first book in The Hawke Family Series, releases September 1, 2016.
