5 Stars across the board. JR Ward takes an upclose look at a dysfunctional family that should have it all, but is rotting behind the façade of old money. The characters are complex and the storyline reveals their history like a the slow burn of good bourbon. I quickly became engrossed and could not put this novel down. The human flaws found in this cosmetically perfect family make us all feel more secure in our average families. Yet it is their flaws that make them approachable to the reader despite their vast wealth.
