Review: Guild Boss by Jayne Castle

Living in this new, alien world doesn’t stop the settlers from trying to re-create what they’ve left behind. Case in point—weddings are still the highlight of any social calendar. But it’s the after-party that turns disastrous for Lucy Bell. Kidnapped and drugged as she leaves the party, she manages to escape—only to find herself lost in the mysterious, alien underground maze of glowing green tunnels beneath Illusion Town. She’s been surviving on determination and cold pizza, scavenged for her by a special dust bunny when help finally shows up.

Gabriel Jones is the Guild Hunter sent to rescue her, but escaping the underground ruins isn’t the end of her troubles—it’s only the beginning. With no rational reason for her abduction, and her sole witness gone on another assignment for the Guild, whispers start circulating that Lucy made it all up. Soon her life unravels until she has nothing left but her pride. The last thing she expects is for Gabriel Jones to come back to town for her.

The Lucy that Gabriel finds is not the same woman he rescued, the one who looked at him as if he were her hero. This Lucy is sharp, angry, and more than a little cynical—instead of awe, she treats him with extreme caution. But a killer is still hunting her, and there aren’t a lot of options when it comes to heroes. Despite her wariness, Gabriel is also the one person who believes Lucy—after all, he was there. He’s determined to help clear her reputation, no matter what it takes. And as the new Guild Boss, his word is law, even in the lawlessness of Illusion Town.
If you haven't yet tried this series then you don't know how excited I was when I heard we'd have a new book in it. The last book in this series was in 2016. I know! That's so long for a romance author. I needed and missed my dust bunny love. 

Happily, you don't have to wait any longer because Guild Boss is here. I don't know about you but sometimes when there is that much of a gap between books you can feel a little lost in the series. Forget the comings and goings. Not so with Guild Boss, it was like falling in the arms of an old friend. 

I can't tell you how much I loved this story and the new characters we are meeting. Right away you feel the connection between both Lucy and Gabriel. The weird part is that I didn't even think about how quickly they fell for each other because they just worked. 

Poor Lucy has some rough times. She stands strong and is not weak. You'll find yourself cheering her on as she deals with what life throws at her. It is nice to have someone in your life standing with you and Gabriel is that person. 

It's cute what he's done to be with Lucy. There is no question that he cares for her. Often while reading the story you can see it. He's a good hardworking man. 

These two together are perfect and I was so happy to read Guild Boss. I think you'll love them and enjoy Otis. He adds so much to the story. Guild boss can be read on its own. I really think you should get them all and start reading. The perfect Christmas gift. Have any of you read her?
