The V Card. Virgin. Most of us want to punch that sucker ASAP, and hide the fact until then, but not Cassie Hale. Three years ago she frickin' covered hers in glitter and laminated the thing, proudly telling me that she's waiting for the perfect guy. So when I see her half naked, tangled together, rolling around on the floor with another stripper, I'm kind of shocked. Okay, that's an understatement. I'm enthralled. I have to know what cracked her picture perfect world and landed her here, and I hope it's something horrible-an event that broke her the way she broke me. Because, that's who Cassie Hale is--the woman who stole my heart and crushed it in her hand.

I am so excited to be back immersed within the tragic Ferro family. A family that teaches you that money can't buy you everything, including life and class. We adore Peter, and we lust after Sean but now we get to know Jonathan, the youngest and most troublesome Ferro.
Jon doesn't seem to be able to keep himself out of trouble, constantly acting on instinct instead of thought, he is quick to get himself into a new situation. But his mom is at the end of her rope and orders him to spend the summer with his uncle. While serving his banishment, he meets Cassie and almost instantly, the charming playboy is knocked on his ass. Cassie knows her mind and knows what she wants. She wants the first man she kisses to be the man to be the man she marries, and she doesn't intend to have sex until her wedding night. This concept is so far out of Jon's ability to understand that he begins to get to know her in order to try and understand. They spent their summer together, getting to know each other until something happens and their friendship turns bad.
So imagine his surprise when hosting Peter's bachelor party 3 years later, Cassie is one of the strippers.
I love being in the Ferro family. It's definitely a family I have no interest in being a part of but watching their drama unfold is a blast. These men are wicked and sexy, and Jon definitely lives up to those expectations but I also feel the need to hold him in my arms and cuddle him. I think out of all the brothers, I feel the worst for him. If only someone would believe in him.
