Lip Service

Lip ServiceSkye Titan always had done what her father asked her to do, she proved that by dumping her boyfriend to marry a man he selected eight years ago. Now that Skye is single her father is telling her once again to marry the man of his choosing. This time around Skye is not as cooperative especially when her old flame shows up.

Mitch Cassidy did not consider himself to be a hero even though he fought and saved many. He lost a leg in the Navy Seals and thought himself finished. He will travel back home to see many things have changed except for the intense feelings for his ex girlfriend.

So already reading the first book  of the series Lone Star Sisters I already know who the villain is supposed to be in Lip Service but Susan Mallery goes further and gives us more to hate. Jed is the ever loathing father that I really am disliking especially how he pins his children against each other and of course uses threats against them. Then there is TJ who is the new suitor who I knew was working for the ultimate bad guy, Garth who seems to get worse and worse. There was also Mitch had a moment of being the villain and even Izzy had played a little of the villain by not thinking about what she was doing. In the end she was doing it to show her sister but it could have been done a different way.

Now even though I really love reading so far this series it made me cringe. My hands were curling the pages of the book as you went further and further wanting to know when everything will burst. Lone Star Sisters has no readily happy ending as there are many obstacles that keep getting in the way. I hated that Skye was a little on the weak side when facing her father but with her past it is understandable. I thought Mitch was a diamond in the rough after he got over trying to get his own revenge on Skye.There was a lot of hurt that happened throughout their interaction but they were able to heal.  I loved that through it all there was a second chance that brought them together and a happy ending for them is possible.

So the ending has two big things that happen. There is a very harsh threat from Jed to his daughter which finally severs the ties she held on to and then Izzy is in a dangerous situation where she could have been killed. Is Garth going after Izzy now? Is he going further in the plan and trying to hurt them not just their reputation? The answers will hopefully be answered in the next book which I will be starting next.
