Synopsis from Goodreads: 

Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.

Olivia finds bliss unlike any she’s ever known in Cash’s arms. He sets her skin on fire and melts her heart right inside her chest. Unfortunately, their happily ever after is short-lived when a shadow from Cash’s past threatens to turn their world upside down.

Dangerous people from his father’s world have discovered that Cash holds information that could put them away for a very long time. And they’re willing to do anything—and hurt anybody—to get it back. Giving it up means Cash must choose between the life of his father and the life of Olivia.

Having nearly overcome her wariness of bad boys, Olivia’s trust is shaken when this new threat arises. Now she finds that Cash is not only a danger to her heart, but his family has associations that are a danger to her life as well. She soon discovers that there are some situations in life where trust is a girl’s only option. And this is one of them. If she’s to live, she must trust Cash with her life. But to Olivia, that’s much, much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.
My Thoughts...
In my opinion, this book was WAY better than the first one Down To You.  I felt like this one was actually more plot driven and less about sex than the first one.  This is another one where I just have to keep my comment brief for fear of spoilers!

This story focuses more on Cash trying to clear his father's name.  There is a lot more action and suspense in this book.  We meet a couple of new characters, one of whom is Olivia's mother.  She is really just a horrible woman!  I thought that Gavin was awesome and I would LOVE to read more about him for sure, maybe a spin off series or something.  There is another, surprise character that I am looking forward to reading more about in the next book as well.

Basically this one is just a continuation of the story with more action and actual plot.  We still have the love story and we get to see Cash and Olivia come to terms with how they feel about each other.  We are left on a nice cliffhanger...again, so I am anxious to see what happens in the next book.  Is Cash hiding something?  Is he really who we think he is?  I can't wait to find out!

There are some pretty steamy love scenes in this one just like the last one and the language is about on par with that one as well, not overly vulgar.  If you like steamy romances then you may want to give this one a go, but make sure you read the first one otherwise you will be lost!
