|Seven Deadly #2|
Gather ‘round, love, because I want you. I want what you have, I want what you don’t have, I want more of what I already have. I want. But if you so much as ask for something in return, go ahead and walk away. Know if you want to play in my world, it’s every man for themselves and the weak become mine. Leeches will be obliterated because I make it my job to destroy them. I protect what’s mine and I take what’s yours…because that’s what I do. I want.
My story will not endear me to you and, frankly, I could care less if it does because I’m in this for the money and nothing else. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a corrupt, money hungry, immoral asshole from Los Angeles. I’m every man’s worst nightmare and every girl’s fantasy.
I’m Spencer Blackwell…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most coveted guy to the guy no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
I was looking forward to this book, and it did not disappoint. Wow, this story was pretty intense. Spencer Blackwell was a pretty shitty person at the start of the book, well fairly shitty in his own way.
Far too focused on material stuff than anyone at 21, or anyone at any age, should be. It wasn't exactly clear what happened with Piper at the start of the book, but I guess I can acquaint it with it having to do with just losing a bunch of money.
Spencer Blackwell likes money. He likes having it, he likes to spend it on expensive things for himself, but he hates the way he earns it. Being his father's lackey isn't all that it's cracked up to be. And as much as he hates it, he likes having money in his bank account even more. But when his little sister gets her self in trouble, Spence has little choice but to take her as far away from their father as possible.
Now, the over all story was pretty fantastic. I laughed, I cried and I cringed at a couple parts. Spencer just wasn't as interesting as Sophie was, and neither was his story. If he had just turned his father in straight away it could have solved a bunch of their problems, but I guess that really wasn't the point. Spencer had to learn how to not be a selfish douche the hard way. The hard way is working his hands to the bone on a cattle ranch, and almost losing a girl that he loves more than he ever loved his money.
The sheer excitement that I had after reading book one has dwindled a little, but I am still intrigued and interested in reading the rest of this rather unique series.
