Genre: Romance-Suspense

Travis is still out there. I don’t think I’ll ever be free.
He’s not going to stop until I’m his. Elias and Sin may be protecting me, but
I’ll never be safe. Not with all the secrecy and lies I’ve been told. But I
have a secret of my own this time, and it’s destroying me slowly from the
inside.
 
Elias Brooks
 
I made a mistake by exposing Marlee to my world, but I won’t
stop until I make it right. It’s too late to go back now. She’s mine. I’ll let
her unravel every thread. Disclose every single half-truth until I can breathe
life back into her. What’s done is done. I put her in danger before but never
again.
We made ourselves vulnerable with our carelessness. We’re
both to blame. When the threat comes to our doorstep, will we fight through it
together? Or let it tear us apart?
 

5star
A.M. Wilson is a new author to me and I really like her style. This book is filled with all the good stuff – suspense, twists and turns and keep me on the edge of my seat. It was intense and had a good pace and was told from both His POV and Her POV.

We pick up where book 1 left off. Through Travis’ journal, we begin to understand what happened in his past and how troubled he really is. Unfortunately, for me, book 2 was not quite as good as book 1. We do learn what Elias and Alex are working on and that part was really good. What troubled me was Marlena, she was unbelievably messed up – so she is being stalked by an ex and survived a kidnapping, but still insists on sneaking out. And when a mysterious note appears in her car she doesn’t say anything to anyone. That part did not work for me at all. Even though Elias tells her what he does, he still keeps some secrets which was so frustrating. Why would they not talk things through so they could work together to keep her safe?

Some more of my issues were, the comment about the scale reading 152 rather than her usual 148….no woman I know experiences a perfect scale reading 365 days a year. Another one, when she meets Alejandro at 34%. It’s like she has amnesia since Alejandro Gutierrez was explained to her at 7%. And the condom comment 52% (Chap 12) is seriously 180 degrees with what actually happened in book 1 61% (Chap 15). There are more issues, but to reveal them would be spoiling so I can’t reveal them her.

So while I enjoyed the story there were inconsistencies that really should have been caught during editing/beta phase. Overall I am glad we got our HEA, and I would like to still read more of the series.

A note of caution – there is violence and abuse so if those topics bother you, this may not be the right book for you.

I left everything behind in order to be free. I should have
known better than to think it would be so easy. All it took was one day at my
new job.
He came for me.
I used a stranger to deter him, and in doing so, realized my
heart began to beat again. Elias Brooks put me back together after Travis
Dawson tore me apart. Travis makes it everybody’s business that I belong to
him, including Elias, but he couldn’t be more wrong.
He’s stalking me.
I’m afraid he’s come back to hurt me again. He promises he’s
not. Travis pleads he’s only trying to keep me safe from none other than Elias.
Who do I trust?
Fate led me down the wrong path before. Who’s to say it
won’t happen again?
 

 
 
 
A.M.
Wilson fell in love with writing in second grade when she won a young writers’
contest. She spent the years following carrying around a spiral notebook, which
she filled with poetry and short stories detailing the dramatics of being a
young girl. When she hit her college years, she set the notebooks down and fell
in love with reading romance novels. She may have attended college four
separate times, in four different fields, but always knew in her heart writing
was her true passion. She grew up in Duluth, Minnesota and spent her summers in
the cold waters of Lake Superior, but relocated to the Twin Cities with the
love of her life and has two spirited children who make her world go round.
