The first time Maya met Axle she was hiding in his vehicle and trying to get away from her murderous brother who had betrayed her family. The second time she met Axle she was roller skating around corpses picking their pockets. When his MC is told to protect her they step up but they have no idea who she is or why she is in such danger.
Maya finds Axle attractive, she sees his scars but to her that shows strength. Deciding she is bunking with him she offers herself freely but Axle is weary of the mysterious woman and when gets a handle on who she is he decides he has to go all in but what happens when their watch ends?
This was darker than most of C.M. Owens books and I thought the characters were much more complex. I loved Maya, she is nuts, blunt, and perfect for broody Axle. I enjoyed every moment of this story definitely one of my favorites by this author. Can’t wait to see what is next.
