Three of them, one of her, and a remote cabin in the woods. Let the hot, winter nights ensue...

Tiernan de Haas doesn't care about anything anymore. The only child of a film producer and his starlet wife, she's grown up with wealth and privilege but not love or guidance. Shipped off to boarding schools from an early age, it was still impossible to escape the loneliness and carve out a life of her own. The shadow of her parents' fame followed her everywhere.

And when they suddenly pass away, she knows she should be devastated. But has anything really changed? She's always been alone, hasn't she?

Jake Van der Berg, her father's stepbrother and her only living relative, assumes guardianship of Tiernan who is still two months shy of eighteen. Sent to live with him and his two sons, Noah and Kaleb, in the mountains of Colorado, Tiernan soon learns that these men now have a say in what she chooses to care and not care about anymore.

As the three of them take her under their wing, teach her to work and survive in the remote woods far away from the rest of the world, she slowly finds her place among them.

And as a part of them.

She also realizes that lines blur and rules become easy to break when no one else is watching.

One of them has her.

The other one wants her.

But he...

He's going to keep her.

This book blew me away! It was intense, it played with my emotions and kept me hooked to that final page. I didn’t want to put it down once I started, watching Teirnan’s world upside down. Life as she knew it was over and she decided that she needs space to learn about herself, even if it was with her fathers stepbrother and his two sons.

My heart broke for Teirnan, especially realising how isolated she was in her family. Her parents were very absorbed about one another. Seeing her with Jake, Kaleb and Noah was exciting, as her personality starts to surface and she learned to engage with them.

I liked the way they pushed her out of her comfort zone, and she was willing to pull her weight and earn her way. There were many hot and heavy moments throughout this read, and they may not be for everyone. Me personally, I enjoyed those taboo moments and craved to see where they lead.

Every time I pick up a read by Penelope Douglas, I know she is going to pull me into one amazing and twisted read! She creates characters that you want to know more about and a world that you feel like you are in! I cannot wait to see what she brings us next!

It was hard for Teirnan to start over with people she hardly knew, but I was happy that she was able to form a connection early on.

“Do you want the WiFi?” Jake asks me.
The reminder that I can stay connected here makes me pause for a moment.
But if I refuse it, he’ll wonder why. “Sure,” I answer.
“It’s under Cobra Kai.” I shoot a look up at him. Cute.
Searching the available networks, I find Cobra Kai is the only one that pops up.
He’s quiet for a moment and then says, “A man confronts you, he is the enemy. An enemy deserves…”
I stop myself before I can shake my head and type in “No Mercy.” It connects within seconds.
Jake comes to my side and glances down. When he sees I got the password correct, he nods, impressed. “You can stay.”
