*FTC Disclaimer: I received a copy of Arresting Mason from Amber Daulton in exchange for an honest review. I have in no way been influenced by the author and/or publisher’s generosity. You can’t fake these stars, baby!
Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother–his parole officer–catches them together and doesn’t approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
First Line: “Oh, God. Are you okay? I swear I didn’t see you.” Mia Eddison hurried from her car to the stranger on the sidewalk.
Can an ex-con and a girl on the right side of the law be more than just lovers?
After doing time in prison, ex-gang member, Mason Harding, is released back into society after facing hard time for the sins of his past. Bad boy extreme, ladies. Ain’t getting dirtier than this man!
He doesn’t expect his first taste of freedom to lead him to the saucy, sexy, and sultry Mia Eddison. Their instant attraction leads to a night of passion where they are caught by Mia’s brother. Her brother, btw, is Mason’s parole officer. Other than the obvious inconvenience, Mia doesn’t want this to be the last of Mason Harding…even if her brother doesn’t approve.
Funny how this wild attraction is triggered by Mia almost hitting Mason with her car. LOL. She is literally instantaneously drawn to him and his sordid past. After their night of passion and learning of Mason’s history, Mia is determined more than ever to help Mason break away from his gang roots and tear away the walls that surround his heart. She knows there is good in him. Or does she?
“Heat bloomed under her skin. She was grateful she wore a low-cut blouse, slinky black slacks, and peek-a-boo heels for a confidence booster…”
Yeaaa girl! Well, I don’t really think she cares if Mason is good or bad because she’s ALL SORTS OF HOT AND BOTHERED!
But you know how this goes…Mia gets in the middle of things. And as Mason’s past begins to threaten his present, he must face the men he once considered brothers to save the woman that has since captured his heart. Will good conquer evil, or will love lead to the ultimate sacrifice for both of them?
Hot hot HOT! Mason Harding is my new smexy addiction. I haven’t been into gang books much this year, but Amber Daulton knows how to write it right. Arresting Mason was unputdownable. I enjoyed Mia’s character, but her transformation was just a little weak for me. But Mason? He turned a great book into an excellent book. This one will be read again by the end of the year, I’ll tell ya that.
