Aidan Hunter’s heart has been broken twice. The first time was his mistake; Tori belonged to his brother. The second time, an entirely different kind of void remained.
After months of trying to understand how Maria perpetrated such heartless betrayal, the only thing Aidan has left is the desire to seek revenge. With everything in place to work the hustle of a lifetime, Aidan learns the truth and he’ll stop at nothing to get Maria back.
Only in an unexpected twist, Peyton Miles, a woman completely opposite of Maria, begins to worm her way into Aidan’s heart. She’s mature, sexy and confident, and she doesn’t need to be saved.
When an irreversible mistake is made, Aidan loses both women.
Fate has other plans and a second chance emerges. Can Aidan let go of the guilt he carries and allow himself happiness? Or will he continue to fight his feelings and intentionally sabotage any hope of a relationship?

Well folks KJ Bell have done it yet again, just when I thought I would never fall deeper in love with Tug I did, she’s out done herself, if that was even possible, this time around. The emotions were on high alert this time around I tell you, there were some laughter but my poor heart strings got a work out I tell you. She knows how to give her readers the ultimate shock value and we love/hate her for it lol, you don’t know what to expect when it comes her stories, things will go left real quick and you will not expect it, and damn I love that.
Now let me start talking about my man Aiden aka Tug aka Tuggie, boy we see him struggle guys, I just wanted to hug him and cuddle him and let him know everything will be all right. Damn I felt for him, he fought with his emotions, he fought with his heart, he fought with his soul and in the end I was so happy that he got rescued by his angel Peyton. First I was too sure about her, I didn’t know if I could trust her, but then I saw how strong she was, how independent she was, she was exactly was he needed at the right time. Aiden was just so used to people needing him, and what he needing all along was someone who wanted to be with him for him. There are some many twists in this book that I don’t want to say too much in this review that will give much away. All I want to say is just make sure you pick up your copy of “Tug 2: The Hustle” today. Oh and Javier, oh my how cute is he, he warmed my heart I tell you. I cannot wait to find out what else KJ have in store for us next, I have a feeling it’s going to be great.
