They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.
3.5 out of 5 stars
Can be read as a standalone.
I'm in the minority. Scandalous was just a decent read for me and my least favorite in the series.
I loved how Trent was a sexy single dad that had his own issues. I just had a problem with the chemistry between the characters. Of course, there were lots of steamy moments, but the story didn't stand out to me. The lines were a bit too cheesy, and I couldn't get into it.
My favorite part of the book was seeing my delicious Vicious. I can't get enough of him. The next book is about Bane, Edie's best friend. I'm really intrigued and added the book in my list to read.
