If he’s going down, he’s going down swinging…
Now that Bash has a second chance with Olivia, he doesn’t want to blow it, but if he tells her the truth about his nighttime activities, he could lose her forever.
Olivia loves that Bash is willing to stick his neck out for those he loves, but not when it might ruin his career…or worse. When she finds out he’s left her bed in the middle of the night to compete in an illegal, bare-knuckled fight run by a notorious Boston mobster, she’s furious.
How can she trust Bash if he keeps lying to her? And how many more times can he put himself at risk before it finally catches up with him?

Book three begins right where book two left off. I love that there’s no timeline jump between these books.
When an unexpected visitor shows up, just after Bash left her dorm room, telling Olivia he needs her help to stop Bash, she rushes off with him without hesitation. I love that she has the strength to do what’s necessary even when at the same time she’s dying inside. And her seeing Bash fight is the most difficult front she puts on. But it’s better to have his head on the win instead of on her worrying how she’ll react.
“I was going to cheer my head off and smile while I did it, until he stepped out of that ring. And then? I was going to fucking kill him for this.”
Bash keeps trying to take on everything by himself. He thinks Mickey is his problem alone and he’ll even lie to those he loved to keep them from the mobster’s reach. Although all he ends up doing is pushing away those who care about him.
In the final Bash and Olivia book they figure out their relationship, the jury returns a verdict on his case, and it creates an opening into the next book, Trust Me: Matty and Kayla Book One.
My Favorite Moment: The rooftop picnic. Sometimes, well truth be told a lot of time, I’ve wanted to smack Bash upside the head, but that picnic had me rethinking bodily harm to him.
