The plot is filled with trickery, naughty sexual encounters, rich playboys, secrets, lies, powerful friendships, strong personalities, mystery, jaw-dropping moments, and scandal…all the makings of extraordinary novel.
I really like Everly’s character. She is smart, sassy, and very strong-willed. She knows her worth and she refuses to allow Gabe and his friends to man-handle her. Which makes her the perfect match for Gabe because he is a true alpha male to the core with “follow my order” qualities. I also appreciated the interactions and loyalty with Gabe and his friends. I found them to be a fascinating group of men. I anxiously await for each of the men’s individual stories.
On the whole, Scandal Never Sleeps is one thrilling novel not to be missed! This breathtaking pag-turner had me hooked from page one.
