The first time I saw her was across the room at a bar. I had no idea at the time that she was only sixteen. All I knew was that she was beautiful, she was sending me do-me vibes from across the room, and I was fresh off a deployment where there’d been nobody but men for nine of the longest months of my life.

The second time that I saw her was at a court hearing that would decide how long I’d be sent to prison for. She was a cute little curly-haired blonde with wide, expressive eyes, a banging body, and the reason that I’d gone to prison in the first place.

The third time I saw her was through a glass divider of the prison visitation room as she waited for her stepfather, my lawyer, to tell me how sorry he was that he lost my case. Especially when I’d been the one to kill the man that was about to kill his daughter.

The last time, the time that I decided enough was enough, was when I saw her at my bar eight weeks after I’d been set free.

Unlucky for her, I’d stopped being a good guy about two seconds after those bars closed behind me twelve years ago. Now all that was left was a shell of a man that didn’t see the good in anything. Anything except for her.

Jailbait is the 3rd book in the Souls Chapel Revenants and I am continuing to love this series! Swazye and Trick have a tragic second chance story. Their lives have been hard from the jump and I wanted them to get their happy life.

Poor Swazye gets beat nearly to death by her own father, and then the dirty town turns on the man who saved her. The guilt Swazye carried was huge and she makes a major life change. I love that Swazye never changed her mind-it would have been easy for her to move away and try to forget all this, but that isn’t what she does.

Trick doesn’t regret saving Swazye; he knows that he got screwed over, but he isn’t upset at Swazye. When he gets early release thanks to Lynn, he takes it, but tells Swazye to stay away. Jokes on him-she lives across the street from his new home, his sister adores Swazye, and he can’t escape her. He finally gives in and realizes that keeping Swazye at arms length is dumb.

Trick’s sister is a delightful side character (as is her boyfriend, Dazzle) and thought her story is endearing. Also, seeing the MC and the previous couples always adds joy and often humor. Jailbait is wholly delightful, at times tragic, and steamy to boot!
