Review: The Bandit by B B Reid
SHE STOLE MY PROPERTY
I’ll never forget the night I caught her sneaking around my place. She thought she could steal from me and get away with it, but I have no intention of letting her get away at all. Mian Ross has a lesson to learn, and I’m going to be the one to teach it to her.
HE STOLE MY SON
I’ll never forget the night I made the second biggest mistake of my life. It was supposed to be a simple job, but it quickly became so much more—one that cost my freedom and cost my son. Angel Knight became my worst nightmare… and now, he’ll never let us go.
5 "Could Not Put it Down Stars!"
Nothing and no one tortured me more than Mian.
Not all the shit I stole or the lives I took.
Not the money or power.
None of it compared to little Mian Ross.
Bandit is complicated. That's putting it mildly. Mian Ross and Angel Knight have history. Their families have history. Their lives are intertwined by a murder. Mian entered Angel's life when she was ten years old and he was 16. Years later, she is still his obsession and his curse. Circumstances forced Mian to live with Angel's family until new circumstances demanded she leave. What followed later forever changed Mian's life. She is now living in poverty, a single mom and desperate.
She makes a choice that will bring her back into Angel's world.
Leaving her alone these past three years had been mercy enough until she made the first move that put us at war. I was the Bandit and the Knight.
When you have limited options you will do anything in order to survive. While Mian has struggled to give her child the barest of necessities, Angel has grown more jaded. He trusts two people in this world-his best friends Lucas and Z. They work for him and are almost blindly loyal to him. They share his love for weed and women and usually share these two loves at the same time.
Mian fucking Ross. That little girl has owned me since she was ten. Every day for six years, I kept her, protected her, and grew a little more obsessed with her each time.
Having his one weakness back in his life throws his world off kilter. She will pay and he will be the one to dole out her punishment.
Mian had a kid?
Rage, pain, and jealousy. Each fought for dominance.
I have to tell you there are scenes so hot in this book-forget melting your panties off. Don't bother wearing them in the first place. Lucas and Z scream sex-they are gorgeous, persuasive and can talk any woman out of her bra. Mian may put up a fight, but it's hard not to get swept up in their tsunami.
Bandit has so many secrets and lies and layers. At the core it is a love story, but no one can escape the underbelly world that Angel lives in. He is ruthless and hardened and arrogant. Mian may be his Achilles Heel but he will never willingly admit it. She holds most of the cards; she just doesn't know it. Who is the prisoner and who has the keys?
Angel Knight was neither my guardian angel or knight in shining armor. He was my enemy.
