*I was sent a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I really enjoyed this book. It was refreshing to read a newly released RH that wasn't just insta-love, smut, and possessive men. This one had an actual storyline, developed side characters, and a likable main character as well as smut and hot men.

Things I liked about this book:

  • The main character's badassery about pretty much everything.
  • The fact that the crew was all women and feminist. 
  • All the side-characters played an actual role and were active in the story instead of just being there to further the main character.
  • The action and slower scenes were balanced.
  • The smut scenes.
What I wished had been better:
  • There was a bit of insta-love, so I feel the story could have been a little bit longer to allow for a bit more of a development on that side of things. Once the characters were all in love, it was fun, but I did think it was rather abrupt
  • There wasn't as much of the men as I would have liked. I still loved them, but I would have liked to see a lot more of all of them together and having a good time outside of smut or action scenes
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I'm only hoping that the series continues on following these characters so that I can get more of the relationships between the main character and her men. I thought that for a start to a series, it was strong. 

I highly recommend this book to RH fans everywhere!
