Where on earth do I start to review this book.... 
The family in this book is just one big hot mess and has more secrets than you can imagine. 
Blue & Shadow: 
These  star-crossed lovers have been kept apart by Calla, Blue's sister, even though she knew they both liked one another. It'll take years and a lot of problems later for it to be discovered. 

Why did Calla do what she did? Who is who's baby daddy? 

Let's not forget Bolton, the son of Calla & Shadow. Due to all the problems over the years and with his mum and dad being imprisoned, Blue becomes more of a mother to him than his real one ever was.

Then comes the moment where Shadow is being released from prison and he, Blue and Bolton will be living under the same roof. 

Will the sparks still be there after all this time? Will they survive the aftermath of all that is to happen and already has?

Tons of secrets. Second chance love. 

So I do think this book has potential but somehow fell a little short for me. I think it just was a little too much from everything. 

Whilst should not discourage you to try it of course! :)

If you want a sort of MC erotica romance with a lot of mysteries and intrigue this is certainly worth a try.

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She’s always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 
After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there’s never a dull moment in her household. 
She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
