4 Brilliant Stars!!
I really enjoyed book 1 and was intrigued to see what would happen in this book.And I am so glad I wasn't disappointed, this book was just as good and much more.
The ending made you want more, it's not a cliffhanger yet it has you craving for more, wondering what will happen next.I was looking forward to this book yet I thought it may become predictable and then I read it and Omg sooo not how I expected it to go.There are a lot of issues that need to be solved and I can't wait for the next book to be released!
"What I feel...for you, Erica. With everything else that's going on, sometimes it's just too intense. I feel like I'm going to rip us both apart. I wanted tonight to be different. I really did." He closed his eyes for a moment. "You deserve to be worshiped. Loved."
At the start Blake kind of pissed me off , I was just getting so frustrated with the whole hiding business.He should have been upfront and told her everything since he is part of the mess and she is involved aswell. He tried to take care of everything and avoid telling her anything. I felt like screaming OMG stop it already! He needed to treat her as an equal so she doesn't start hiding stuff as well.But yeah just small stuff at the beginning other than that he is a love-able frustrating man!
"Mine. You're mine. Just like this. Your body, your heart. Every part of you."
New characters are introduced some good and some evil, lets see if you can guess which ones are which ;)
Some old characters return much more dangerous and fierce than ever before. One of the new guys is James who works for Erica, i had this weird feeling about him, I can't even explain it but yeah maybe I am wrong or maybe the next book will bring out his true motives.
I was really surprised and shocked with some of the things that happened in this book , the suspense was killing me.Some parts I was like OMG Erica wtf are you thinking?! Making me panic and want to remove Erica from a stupid/dangerous situation.
"Loving me wasn't enough. You've made me desperate."
Next book..please be out soon!
