*** Part 1 of a 3 part serial ***

Cory James has never known a life where she wasn’t running. Running from the cops, her home, her past. Running from love. The only time she’s free is when she throws on her hood and takes to the roofs to become a part of New York, to climb to a place in the city where she doesn’t feel alone.

Stealing is nothing, lying inevitable, byproducts of survival. A way for Cory to provide for herself and for her younger sister, Jill, give her the life Cory couldn’t have. For five years, Cory set up a long line of teetering dominos, one by one, choice by choice.

Meeting Van is the first domino to fall, and once they crash into each other, it’s only a matter of time before her whole world is in danger of falling apart. She can tell herself over and again that she doesn’t care, but it’s a lie. She knows it from the first time she says his name, but she can’t let him in, not when she has a job to do, a job that could rip her life apart at the seams. One that she’ll have to betray Van to finish.

He’ll follow however high she can climb, but she can only run for so long before she has to choose.

Please note this review is an Erotica and is not meant for people under the age of 17. Also note this review contains colorful language because yes I do curse like a truck driver (no offense truck drivers) 🙂

My Review:

Ok so let me start by saying I don’t normally read erotica, however when Staci said she was writing a serial I had to make an exception since I love Staci’s stories and I knew she would do this in a way where someone that normally doesn’t read erotica would enjoy it.

From beginning to end this story was intense, I loved the idea of having a group of cat burglars who are all pretty good at parkour. What is Parkour?

par·kour (pärˈko͝or/)
noun: parkour; noun: parcour; plural noun: parcours
The activity or sport of moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, and climbing.

I thought Cory was a really kick ass character, but a little confused, I loved that she had a big heart but at times felt she was just a bit whiny. Van was a dream, such a sweetheart and yes he was a bit creepy there for a moment but, Damn, he is a keeper. I am so worried so about these two. I love the chemistry they have and am just scared of what the outcome will be. The ending, WOW, I fucking HATE Jade, she is a major asshole and is need of a serious beating to knock her ass off that high horse. She rubbed me the wrong way through the entire book.

Lets get to the story and the sex, because you know you want to know about the sex, for an erotica this was done VERY well, I don’t mind sex in my books, but erotica tends to have a lot more than I like, this I didn’t mind it having so much, I have to be honest and say my favorite is the shower scene, not saying what but you need to read it for yourself to find out, HOT. The story is fast paced and intense I had a very hard time putting this down, the end was one hell of a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.

I gave it the 4.5 stars because of my issues with Cory however, I really enjoyed this book a lot, and being a person who prefers a story with her sex this was an excellent example of the type of Erotica I enjoy and a great book for people not sure if they will like Erotica or not. Awesome Job Staci Hart as always <3 🙂

  1. Your comment about cursing like a truck driver made me laugh! (Saying that, I know a few and I don’t think they’ve ever actually sworn in front of me!)

    I love the cover for this one, it had me interested as soon as I saw it on your Sunday Post (yep I was doing the creepy stalker thing this week where I read everyone’s but barely commented). Definitely adding it to the TBR pile!

  2. While I don’t read a lot of erotica, I do enjoy the genre as long as there is enough story beside the sex as well. Sounds like this is a erotica well done, so I am adding it to my to-read list. I actually have read one or two books were they mentioned parkour, it looks pretty cool. Great review!
