Dark side of life, emotional read for me.
The Vixen - Christi Caldwell

For me, this story was like a snowball rolling down a hill. At the beginning, I liked Ophelia and Connor. The farther down the hill, the more their story pulled me in, heart and mind. The last third of the story had me riveted, in tears, biting my nails, and turning pages. Thank you for a wonderful story that went from the baser side of people to the honest, loyal, and goodness in others. I loved how Connor taught Ophelia to change how she looked at herself as well as others in order to let go of the past. Ophelia's mind showed her how to survive and to help others survive, but could not see past her fears to open her heart completely. I highly recommend this story.

I received an ARC of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

The Vixen (Wicked Wallflowers, #2) by Christi Caldwell
The Vixen - Christi Caldwell

 

Christi Caldwell delves into the darkest corners of life to create something wonderful. The Vixen is a tale of hope in the moments of despair. Ophelia is a woman of courage. She beat the odds with a little help from her phantom guardian angel. Once a girl without a home, she is now a protector of the underdog. Her heart guides her into uncharted territory when her long lost warrior reappears as the man that can orchestrate her undoing. Connor and Ophelia are romance at it's finest. Captivating, inspiring, unforgettable.

The Vixen - Christi Caldwell

The second book that follows the Killoran gang focuses on Ophelia. Her brother is up to his antics again to marry a sister off to a nobleman in order to create connections. Ophelia is stubborn and scarred from a past she hasn’t shared with anyone, including her family, but when her brother says either she or Gertrude will marry well, she sacrifices herself to protect her sister.

Connor Steele was once saved from a life on the streets when he stepped in to protect Ophelia. He thought he was sacrificing his life, but fortune shined on him and he instead was adopted and given a life of privilege. He is now an investigator that comes knocking on the Devil’s Den in order to hunt down a lost nobleman’s son.  Ophelia and he bump heads from the start, both keeping their shared past a secret, but when they keep bumping into each other at social events their nemesis/friendship is rekindled. 

The story was enjoyable, it was slow at times, but at the point near the end where her past comes back to haunt her, the plot and conflict get really good.  I enjoyed their interactions throughout the book. Ophelia was such a strong, yet stubborn, woman who found it really hard to trust Connor or his intentions.  Overall, I enjoyed it, though I wish the plot pace was a little stronger.

Blog Tour - Never Been Good

 

About the Book:

 

Never Been Good
by Christi Barth

Series: Bad Boys Gone Good #2

Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Avon Impulse

Publication Date: April 3, 2018

 

 

 

 

Flynn Maguire isn’t really a bad guy. Sure, he worked for the mob, but he ran a legitimate business—on paper anyway—and it paid enough to keep his brother out of the lifestyle. Until they turned on him. Now he’s stuck in Witness Protection, tending bar in Nowheresville Oregon… and pissed the life he knew is gone.

 

The only bright spot? Fantasizing about his quiet, secretive, beautiful coworker.

 

Sierra Williams is a woman on the run. All she wants now is to settle into small town life… and ignore the brooding, sexy bartender who can’t seem to take his eyes off her. Flynn’s bad-boy vibe pushes all her buttons, but Sierra fell for the wrong man once already. She can’t afford to let her guard down again. Except Flynn’s tough exterior is slowly melting away to reveal the sweet man beneath and their attraction is too strong to resist.

 

Sierra and Flynn are falling fast, but they’re both keeping so many secrets. The truth could ruin everything… unless a girl who’s a little bad is perfect for a guy who’s never really been good.

Good Characters and story
Justin (Male Model Chronicles) (Volume 1) - Christi Snow,Mia Downing,Sarah Negovetich,Shauna Kruse,Joshua Scott Brown

Joshua was a hot male who had made a name as a  fitness model in a holiday lingerie show who had a kind heart. Joshua had also been in the Air force and loved to play video games.  Joshua had worked with the famous Mrs. Kruss and on a recommend he was hired with former military models. He was also to escort a famous model down the runway in a grand show. When Joshua went to the facility tv prepare it was another world with blatantly clad females some were nude. Joshua had no reaction other than a little embarrassment and confusing. Then Joshua saw Autumn  who seemed to be the organizer or body handler of sorts the first thought Joshua had was he wished she was handling his body. Autumn was having her own problems as she was the representative Layne Media. She was the event organizer joshua was was assigned to be property of Bianca who was a famous lingerie model and the legendary face of of Pandora’s Fantasy Lingerie. Bianca also had a stalker.  Then Pandora’s father created drama - the majority of pandora who was a manipulative narcissist. Autumn’ sister and partner was determined to have more of Pandora. Something from the past was affecting Autumn and her sisters relationship. Joshua became headline news as he was thrown into a media circus when he became engaged to the model. Joshua is very attracted to Autumn but now engaged because of his big heart and saving Bianca.  Autumn is attracted to Joshua and loves to play video games also.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a fun fun read with some danger shot inI liked the fast pace and plot. I would have liked this to have been a little longer. I admired Autumn’s loyalty to to her sister even if I didn’t like her sister. There was, danger, heat hot models- especially males, romance, mystery, a meddling relative, gaming nerd, ex military, a stalker, and a lot more in this book. It was never explained - or I missed it- why younger Autumn took the blame for things that happened when she was eighteen. I liked the characters and the ins and outs and I recommend.
