For years, all I dreamed about is getting away.
Starting over… a new life.
Far, far away from where I grew up.
But I always expected to be the one to save myself.
I was naïve enough to think the decision about where I went, and more importantly, who with would be up to me.
Turns out, I never had a say. In any of it.
My future had been mapped out long ago.
A future that begins at eighteen when I’m ripped away from the only home I’ve ever known and thrust into a world darker than the one I was running from.
When I’m dragged around like a rag doll with a price on my head, the only person I can think about is him.
The dark and sinful man who turned my life upside down.
He could save me. I know he could.
But there’s just one problem.
He’s going to have to find me first.
I practically started this book with my heart in my throat after how the last one ended so it was a relief to get resolution early on. The story took a different direction than what I had expected, but I loved every minute of it. This book seemed to have a much faster pace and a lot more action than the first one, which was fine by me. At no point in the first book was I bored or disappointed by Alex and Evie’s story, there was nothing lacking. But somehow this book was so much more and I’m not even sure how that happened.
We get to know so much more about the Alex we thought we knew all this time and it’s so much fun. Some things will surprise you, others are simply confirmation but it’s always so satisfying to get to know a favorite character on a deeper level. I wasn’t sure what to make of Evie at first, but I quickly warmed up to her in book one and fell for her completely by the end. We get a lot more of her here as well and every layer that was peeled back just endeared her to me even more.
There’s all the usual intrigue and suspense of the KRE world but the cliffhanger in this one seemed particularly brutal, although I suppose that will just make book three that much more satisfying. Alex gets better with each chapter and Evie is the queen he deserves. I can’t wait to see how their story ends.
