This is the 4th book in Measha’s Ever After series. Each of these books is roughly inspired by a fairy tale of some sort. I’m not 100% sure which one Hound is based on, but we have a Foxx as a main character, so you can figure it out yourself.
Keagan Foxx has an impressive skill set. She used that skill set to get into a catalog party at Ash Titon’s Annex, and managed to trick a man into taking her home, and she eventually stole $200K from him. The guy came to Ash and threatened to come after him to get the money back. Ash’s cousin, Jackson, was there to try to buy into the Annex, and when he sees the pic of the offending woman, he tells Ash that he’ll track her down.
Kegan had a very good reason to do what she did. Her foster mother, the only woman she’s ever seen as a mother, died a few years ago, and she’s trying to find out what happened, and she thinks that there may be a small, teeny, tiny chance that she didn’t die. The money Keagan stole went to try and fund her search. She’s moved on to the next mark on her list when Jackson finds her and takes her to his house.
Jackson has plans for Kegan. They had been friendly before, but no strings attached. Now, he plans on getting the money back from her and finding out what’s going on with her. And he doesn’t care what he has to do to meet his goal.
Kegan is smart and very talented, but I think that she is naive, at least to some extent. Yeah, she knows that she’s dealing with powerful men who have few, if any, scruples, but she still seems to think that certain things won’t affect her. I found that to be a really interesting POV on her point. I would’ve been much more cynical than her, and I don’t even have her experience in dealing with the type of men, or sharks more like, that she’s been swimming around with. I think that she’s done well, most of the time, but it only takes one slip, you know?
I think that Jackson is a really good man, especially considering the fact that his business skirts some legal lines. He really wants to make something of himself, and he wants to try to be family-ish with his cousins, which is difficult with family history, but they are making it work.
Normally I would never advocate for any kind of fox hunt, but the one in here is pretty interesting.
That’s all for today! Go check it out! Happy reading!
