a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof
They say when you assume that you make an ass out of you and me. Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she is based on what little information he had. What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with. Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, and now he needs to prove her wrong in order to protect her and their future.
Those Mayson Men just keep getting better and better……
“I see you judging me. I know what you’re thinking. She has to be a slut; she works at a strip club and takes her clothes off for money….The people watching make assumptions about who they think I am, or cook up a story in their heads of who they want me to be. I’m just another beautiful face.”
Autumn Freeman has not had an easy life. She has been abused and forced to do things she didn’t want to do. She is judged and made to believe she just doesn’t matter. One fateful night will change her life and view of herself forever.
Kenton Mayson is a bounty hunter who lives life one day at a time loving his family and his job. Little does he realize that a favor he agrees to do for a friend will change his life forever as well.
When Kenton and Autumn meet there are a lot of “assumptions” being made. Autumn assumes that Kenton sees her just like everybody else does, just a beautiful face that takes her clothes off for a living. Autumn sees Kenton as an ass for the way he acts and handles certain situations. But once Kenton realizes he is falling for Autumn he has to make her see herself the same way he sees her and nothing is going to get in his way, not even Autumn.
“I kiss him back, and all the anger I feel towards him goes into that kiss. I bite his lips, bottom then top, and claw my nails through his hair. He growls down my throat, his big body pressing me harder into the wall”
There is just enough of everything in this story, love, danger, lol moments and a great cast of characters. I loved this book and can honestly say you will not be disappointed.
This is book one in Aurora Rose Reynolds new series, The Underground Kings series. Although it is a series each book is a stand alone as well just like her Until series… and let me just say that if you loved the Until series, you will love this one as well. There is also some crossover of the characters from the Until series which is always nice…..
If you have not read her Until series, I suggest you read those as well because they are very well written and each book has a hot alpha male… just saying.
