Rating: 3/5

When Isis consented to letting three hot, dominating bank robbers use her body for their every sexual whim and pleasure, she was thinking about forbidden thrills. Dangerous fun. What she never expected was the deep bond the four of them might form.

But when the group plans a daring heist during a night of kinky sex, she discovers how strong their emotions can grow—and how high the stakes can climb. Do the outlaws have what it takes to evade their enemies…and give each other what they truly need?

Warning: Involves hot, dirty action and bank robbers in kilts

 "You Wish we were dead, motherfuckers!"

I rated The Wrong Turn with one star less than the first book because I enjoyed it slightly less. It was if I'm not mistaken shorter than the previous one and I just didn't feel like a lot happened in this one.

Although I wanted more in this book, it was still greatly written, funny and kinky as hell. I felt like there was more spotlight on Thor. He was showing a bit of a dark side because he was not okay with being a criminal, since he's a doctor and everything. Isis definitely noticed that because his out of control behavior showed in the last book also. I'm glad Thor didn't self-destruct or anything like that. Thankfully the other guys said that they would find a way for Thor to be a real doctor again. Phew!

As for Isis. I still adore her. She's easy to like, completely trusts Zeus, Odin and Thor, which makes for very steamy scenes. Two words: Kilt sex.
I also like that in the end she sees they can't really go on like this forever and that she wants to find a way to help them. So we'll see what the next book brings. I feel like I can't say too much about Zeus and Odin. Sure, they were in it a lot but not much happened with them as it was more about Thor. 

Overall, I really liked The Wrong Turn. A little short and too hasty for me, so not as good as the first book, The Hostage Bargain but it only makes me want to read the next book even more. I still very much recommend this book (and series)!
