Genre: Very Hot New Adult Contemporary
Hendrix "Cannon" Cole is a major D*ck. That's D*ck with a capital D. He's nicknamed "Cannon" because of the weapon between his legs. He's damaged, dirty, and demanding. A sexy-as-f*ck ex-Marine. My stepbrother.
I used to hate him. Then I loved him. Then I hated him again. Our history is complicated. But my family thinks he's the perfect solution to my problem. A scandal has thrown me into the limelight, and I'll be screwed if I don't stay on the straight and narrow. Now, Hendrix's new job is making sure I behave. What I didn't count on was being stuck spending every waking moment with him. The heat between us is explosive. But if he fires that cannon, we'll both get burned.
I discovered Sabrina Paige's Step-brother series not too long ago and have breezed through all of the books so far. Cannon was a nice installment to the series. Hendrix "Cannon" Cole is a bit different from the heroes I've come to expect from this series. He's not quite as arrogant and domineering as some of the other heroes from this series have been. (Although I loved the arrogant, domineering ones too.) Having been a marine has made him a bit more serious, and I really loved that background. He had a gravity to him that I liked, while also having that sexy bad boy thing about him too.
Addy was a good character, but there were times that I wanted to shake her and tell her to stand up for herself. She lets people around her dictate all her moves, despite the fact that she's a legal adult, one who can even legally drink, and is a world famous singer. But she lets her parents, her PR people and everyone push her around. Hendrix influence on her is a good one in this respect, but it took quite a while for her to grow. I would have liked some deeper characterization of Addy. I felt like we just scratched the surface.
As with all the other books in the series, I loved the interplay between these two characters. There's a love and hate aspect that makes the sparks fly. It was very sexy, and man, did it have some of the best dirty talk in any book I've read. All in all, though, the book was very entertaining, a fast read, and a really good installment to the series.
