My Review:  
Poppy is an amazing character. She's strong and resourceful. She's definitely kick-ass. She's sexy and she's out of control. Her father wants her to do his thing and get married to the man of his choice, but she wants no part of it. In going her own way, she ends up with the guys on the other side. These guys are kick-ass themselves. And it all starts with some really hot sex with a really hot guy who happens to be her father's number one enemy.

Poppy wants to join their group, but she wants to do it her way. She does and she really earns her place. So, while she's out of control, she's not wild. She thinks before she jumps. Once she's on the inside, she starts finding out the secrets and things get a little weird. As Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz, "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" 

But when you play with the big boys, you have to be ready for some surprises. Poppy handles them pretty well and she's well accepted since she's been expected. To give you more would be to spoil it, so I'm going to stop here and just say, read it for yourself. It's action and heat and humor with a bunch of really great characters. The potential for the series is quite interesting and I'm looking forward to having time to read the next book, Transcend.
