At 18 years old, Camden Pearson is the youngest son yet he is hyperfocused on his education and long-range career plans. Though he seems to have it all for a man his age, Camden’s past has a stronghold on his motivations. Determined to succeed, he won’t be denied.
“I want to pull everyone in and make them mine. Mine to do my bidding. Mine to control. Mine to conquer.”
Poppy Beckett learned early in life about appearances and how to please her family. Though Poppy is smart, she is also unhappy and that leaves her vulnerable to manipulation. As she learns more about the risks involved, Poppy also embraces the strength she always had and forges ahead.
“Camden has the power not only to poke holes in my heart, but to suck every bit of happiness I have left out of me.”
Fueled by revenge, Camden is a master manipulator and uses all resources available to complete his mission. While Camden and Poppy have known each other for many years, he views her as a means to the end. To his surprise, Poppy is much more than a pretty face she begins to complicate his feelings. Together, there is a combustible push-pull attraction that draws these two together despite knowing how destructive they could be.
“You’re so fucking juicy,” he growls. “My finger is soaked because of you, dirty girl. I thought you hated me. Yet here you are drenching me.”
Told in dual POV, Camden’s past is brought to clearer terms and these memories underscore his need for justice. With Poppy, her character gains dimension and she becomes a formidable and a solid partner for Camden. As the plot unfolds, Camden and Poppy head in a certain direction but there are a few twists that propel the story in true K Webster fashion.
As the final book in the Four Sons series, Camden evolves into his own though he has the support of his brothers. In starting this story, I definitely had certain expectations for Camden. While Camden is young, he exuded so much sex appeal and confidence that the pages sizzled. However, I was disappointed in a big choice he made. Thankfully, Poppy and another character balanced what was needed.
Camden a sexy read with a taboo element, but it’s also about healing and letting go. For those familiar with the Four Fathers and Four Sons series, Camden won’t disappoint. After all, he is a Pearson.
