What It’s About:

She wasn’t supposed to be the princess I wasn’t looking for.

When my father ‘died’ five years ago I took over the ‘family business’. But when I say business, I really mean secret society. Or cult. Or militia. Hell, let’s keep it simple and call it the mob.

It’s just not that mob.

It’s much darker, much dirtier, and much more dangerous than any old everyday mob.

And I was perfectly fine with my role in life for a long time. But now my brothers are involved and I need to get them out.

Enter Megan Machette.

When I found her helpless, nearly-naked, and chained to a wall on an island prison I had no intention of being her Prince Charming. But then I found out she had a dirty, dark, dangerous secret that could solve all my family problems.

I was just going to use her. Play her. Tell her everything she wanted to hear.

I never planned on baring my secrets to her in a midnight confession and I certainly never expected her to see past the dark filth inside my soul and find the man underneath.

But she did.

She wasn’t supposed to be the princess I wasn’t looking for.

But she is.

And now I will do anything—even use her evil secret to take down thousands of people—to save my brothers and get what I want.

My Thoughts:

The third book in J.A. Huss’ Bossy Brothers series is all about Johnny, the oldest of the three Boston brothers. His story is just as wild and as twisted as I expected!

Previously, we’ve met Johnny through the eyes of his brothers Jesse and Joey. He came off as slightly unhinged and very scary. However, Johnny’s public persona is just a small part of him. In addition to being a badass enforcer/banker for the crazy organization his family is wrapped up in, he is also an expert on conspiracy theory. His stint in the chess club has made him a master planner; there’s nothing like anticipating your opponents moves when planning to take down a crazy world-domination organization. Oh, and he is quite the dreamer and romantic. In some ways, he reminds me of one of the author’s beloved characters, Spencer Shrike.

Megan Machette becomes Johnny’s problem when he finds her imprisoned on a Caribbean island. She seems like a damsel in distress, but from the start, Johnny is onto her. He knows she is lying and keeping secrets.

While the story is told from their dual points of view, Megan remains enigmatic. Their cat and mouse game creates much speculation and tension throughout the book. Megan’s secrets aren’t shared with the reader until the story reaches its climax. Let me just say that as the plot reaches its culmination, the action gets intense, Johnny’s tactics get stronger, and the plot gets super twisty. I had an inkling about one of the reveals, but everything else that author J.A. Huss incorporated was wildly surprising! I cannot wait to see how the rest of the story plays out. Characters and affiliations pulled in from her prior series make this book, and the upcoming books in the series, a hyperbolical conspiracy thriller that only J.A. Huss could write. It is almost as wickedly delicious as her book, The Company.

Since there are references to key details from the prior Bossy Brothers books, I wouldn’t recommend trying to read this book as a standalone story.
