This is the second book in The Heights Crew series.
I don’t belong in the Heights.
Truth be told, no one does. It’s dirty, grimy. Riddled with crime, the destitute, and the desperate. Where the family unit doesn’t always mean a mom, a dad, and two-point-five kids. It’s whoever gives you the time of day.
That’s how the Heights Crew came about. The only relationship that counts in the Heights is if you’re a part of the Crew. There, gang ties are thicker than blood. More important than money, safety, or any other promise we’re supposed to have in this life. Even more important than yourself.
Me? I’m in, and I can’t get out.
Some days, I’m not even sure I want to.
I’m absolutely loving this series, and this book was brilliant.
I love the characters. Kyla is such a strong, intense character who’s gotten herself in a situation which is far more complicated than she expected. She’s doing the best she can why sticking to her motive to be there.
I absolutely love Johnny. I love the chemistry between them and I absolutely loved seeing their relationship develop in this book. God it’s frustrating how he won’t give into his desires though. I can’t wait to see them have each other fully and I bloody well hope that it’s in the book. He’s fiercely protective and possessive of her which is endearing, except he is literally beating anyone who so much as touches her up. I’m intrigued to see how it’s going to go with the other guys in the scene.
Brawler and Oscar are both great characters. I love the relationship they have with her, and I love the fact they know about each other. Magnum is a great character too. I love how their relationship is developing, but they haven’t crossed that line yet. I’m looking forward to Magnum taking that leap, and giving into his feelings.
The storyline is brilliant. There’s new twists and turns and we’re learning more about the Crew. Big Daddy K is clearly a ruthless leader, and obviously slightly unhinged. Johnny can’t see what Kyla sees with it being his dad. I’m intrigued to see how all all this will play out, especially with her original plan and motive.
The cliffhanger at the end was unexpected. The fact she’s now relying on the man she hates… I’m looking forward to reading the next book.
Overall, this book was brilliant and I would definitely recommend this series. I’m absolutely loving it.
My rating: 5/5*
