Amazing! I love this new addition to the Devilbend Dynasty!
I have been hooked on Kaydences books from the beginning, but each one gets better and better! Like You Should is dripping with suspense and lots of slow burning heat, I loved everything about this book!
Easton and Harlow have been sucked into a sick plot that neither of them know how to get out of. Originally working alone to pull off jobs for someone calling themselves Ocean1K. They both have been blackmailed if they didn’t go through with whatever task has been asked of them. Things turn up a notch when both Easton and Harlow end up called to break and enter a home together after which their lives are never quite the same.
Neither Harlow or Easton had any idea that anyone else would be in the other’s shoes and to make matters worse, Easton is a teacher at Harlow’s school, he could turn her in or visa versa. Luckily they both see their predicament and decide to work together to bring down Ocean1K before things escalate even more, but in that decision they never thought feelings would come into play, especially considering their student/teacher status. Their entire world is messed up enough, but how do you stop the heart from getting involved when it knows what it wants?
Harlow was an amazing heroine, considering she had Donna and Mena to live up to. I really respected the heck out of her. Harlow is the girl that everyone likes; the easy going friend to other guys, all the girls, she is just the everyday girl that makes it easy to gravitate towards. I loved this easy nature about her and that she brought that easiness out in Easton as well. A man who seemed kind of grouchy to everyone else. She’s a really good fit to a man that didn’t seem comfortable in his own skin.
This entire story is full of turns and twists and lots of steamy heat, but I do want to throw it out there, just in case someone has trouble with the teacher/student boundary – Easton and Harlow stir the chemistry like nothing else, but they are both very aware of the ramifications of what could happen to either one of them should borders be crossed. Kaydence doesn’t jump into this subject without thinking through every detail and I love how she went about it, this is what makes her books AMAZING!! That’s all I’m going to say so there are no spoilers…so please enjoy!
One last thing – so many excellent secondary characters and I really hope she continues writing in this world for many more books to come.

My life is a mess.
No plans for the future, constantly disappointing everyone, and now some creep is threatening me, making me do reprehensible things.
Oh! And a teacher is somehow involved too. Easton Monroe is strict, aloof, and not at all what everyone at school thinks he is. The more I dig beneath his neat shirts and disapproving frowns, the more I catch feelings for the complicated man.
I have to figure him out – before we do something we’ll both regret.
My life is a lie.
In a job I can’t stand, alone and miserable, the anonymous psycho blackmailing me is the only person I speak to regularly.
In case I didn’t have enough to stress about, a student is being targeted by the same psycho. Harlow Mead is stubborn, brave and so much more than she lets people see. She’s determined to fight and more beguiling the more I get to know her.
I have to get us out of this deadly situation – before I ruin us both.
