Maxx Kobertson is the owner of Hell’s Belles and when he meets his new bartender, Zowie James he is immediately drawn to her. Zowie is a little thing with a huge inner strength. Rick the leader of the mafia wants half of Hell’s Belles but it is something that Maxx is not willing to even consider. Then one of Rick’s thugs comes to the bar and when Maxx comes out to see what is happening he finds poor Zowie being held by the neck. Needless to say Maxx is more than he appears on the surface, he is a werewolf and he doesn’t take kindly to anyone manhandling one of his employees, especially Zowie.
Maxx knows that someone is working with Rick but is it Zowie? According to one of his men there is a rumor that she is working undercover for Rick but Maxx finds it hard to believe. In spite of not totally believing what he heard about her he has to be sure before he puts total trust in her.
Another incident that nearly kills Zowie makes Maxx very protective of her although still unsure if he can trust her. Zowie and Maxx find themselves in trouble but through it all Zowie shows a strength that belies her size. She seems to have a way of finding trouble and Maxx finds himself always rescuing her.
This was not a long book and I don’t want to go into too much detail, there is explicit sex, bondage and betrayal. Zowie is absolutely an amazing character and I would have given this book five stars just because of her and the things she does and the things that come out of her mouth.
