Asher has known Juliana since childhood and has always harbored a secret affection for her. When she asks Asher to steal letters Ormsby is using to blackmail her sister, he's happy to oblige. Embarking on a bold scheme that gives way to an equally fiery passion, the adventurous pair discover a love neither can live without...
This is the fourth book in the Becomes Her series. I had read the first three a couple years back and I am so glad that the series continues and I picked it back up.
I really enjoy this type where each book carries over from the previous. The story always brings back the previous main characters somehow and ties them all together. For me, it is an extra bit into who they are. Helping you to get even closer and make them come alive.
This story is about Asher Cordell and Juliana Greeley. I'm not sure how to describe how I felt about Asher's past and how this book makes him the hero. While he does have a good heart and seems to have turned a new leaf for the better Busbee makes sure she slips in reminders of who he was. Leaving you with the questions, has he really changed? Can he overcome his past? Or will he live in constant fear of who may find out? The ending of this book only makes me crazy that I didn't get the fifth to continue reading. major cliffhanger and I am definitely on the hunt for the next book!
