Georgie has destroyed me. She’s threatened my freedom and everything I’ve worked so hard to build. My band, my music, is the last thing on my mind. I want her to pay for all she’s done.
But she’s still my Georgie, and my desire for her is as hot as ever. She’s my inferno, my biggest mistake and my greatest reward.
My fans see her as their idol’s downfall. When her life is threatened, I will come to realize there’s nothing in the world more important to me than her.
She’s my flame.
I’m her anchor.
Together, we’re explosive.
We are incendiary.
This book wraps up the love story of Sloane and Georgie. It takes place right after the end of the first book. Sloane is arrested for his relationship with Georgie, due to her being a minor.
Georgie is pregnant and feels forgotten. God knows, Sloane helped with that. He’s been sighted with beautiful women and it’s all over the media. Georgie’s father is still a pussy and her mother is still an evil bitch. She’s quite possibly the most vile woman I’ve ever read about. Georgie’s formidable grandmother is still calling the shots regarding Georgie’s future. Despite all of this, she still loves Sloane, even knowing she could be raising her baby all by herself.
Sloane loves Georgie. Truly loves her. He’s just a pawn in the game his father has been playing with his life and those of his siblings. His father is a loathsome character also. The things he’s done to his children are heinous. When the gloves come off and Sloane decides he wants Georgie, no matter what the cost, buckle your seat belt for non stop action and mind fuckery.
Kathryn Kelly has such a great way of writing extremely fucked up characters and situations. You get pulled into their worlds and feel like a fly on the wall. Sometimes you feel like you should take a nice hot shower or go to church after because her stories can be more than a little dark. But she finds a way to bring it all together. Georgie was such an endearing heroine to read about. Her story is not pretty but it is touching. The author gives you glimpses of the young girl’s age when she tries to deal with her infant daughter. She doesn’t know anything about babies due to her family’s wealth and her age. Her helplessness and confusion regarding motherhood is believable and touching.
I loved the mixing of Georgie, Sloane, his band and the Death Dweller MC. Except for Christopher, I never enjoy him. I love Kathryn Kelly’s books and can’t wait to see what she writes next!
