It’s hard living on the wrong side of the tracks.
Lowen Seely has a criminal record to prove it. Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he fights instinct and tries honesty. But hunger becomes painful, and bills are due. Forced to choose between what is right and wrong, the boy from the hood learns abiding by the rules is nearly impossible when corruption is in your blood.

On the run with consequences in the rearview mirror, Lowen and Poesy accept the truth: they are the bad guys.
But can they get away with their crimes?

Well. This book certainly took me surprise. I went in having no idea what it was about and never having read anything from Mary Elizabeth before.
Firstly, and I will say most importantly, this is fantastically written. It’s raw and powerful. It’s like an emotional punch in the chest. It starts there and just keeps on yanking on the heartstrings. It’s dark (not in a sexual way) but beautiful.
The relationship between Low and Poesy is so strong. Unwavering love. There’s not a moment of this book I didn’t think they would make it as a couple.
My only slight and I mean slight criticism is that, for me at the time of reading, it felt depressing. It’s not the kind of book you finish and go about your day. It’s the kind of book you finish,make yourself a vodka and fit and think of how shit life can be at times.
I’d still have to give it 5 stars based purely on how well it’s written and the original storyline.
I’m definitely adding every book of Mary Elizabeth’s to my TBR.
