He burns for her. Lucky for him, she likes to play with fire. . .
My name is Eddie Rosas, but everyone calls me Trouble. Since I got out of prison six months ago, I’ve had one goal: find my father, whatever the cost. My older brother says I need to move on. He also wants me to leave our gang, East Side Hollenbeck, and go straight, but I can’t—not until I uncover the truth about our family and its missing piece.
One problem? I’m distracted. My distraction’s name is Carmen Centeno. Smart, passionate, and tough as hell, Carmen is a woman from the neighborhood who’s built her career as one of the city’s top chefs. She’s a master of creating pleasure both in and out of bed. But when our connection deepens, how can I show her I’m not the trash everyone says I am?
The pressure’s rising. Carmen deserves a man she can depend on. And when the ghosts of my past rise up, I’ll have to outsmart them—or lose my shot at a future with the only woman who believes in me.
The Rosas brothers will return in Tanked!

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews.
I will admit that this book started out in a way I didn’t expect. We get Eddie having anonymous sex with a woman he found crying in a garden on his first day out of prison. It was super hot sex too! I guess, first day out of prison why not? Let me tell you the sex just gets hotter throughout the book! The woman disappears and Eddie can’t find her, doesn’t know her name, and spends months wanting her.
There just aren’t the words to say how awesome this book is. It is actually the first of the series that I have read and I have since gone back to read, Thirsty. Turns out the the mystery woman ends up being Eddie’s boss and let me tell you there is plenty of mystery that comes along with that relationship. I loved Eddie as a character, I mean the dude reads romance novels. That is my kind of guy!
