He should’ve been my last.
But to keep him safe—to keep him alive—I had to leave him behind.
Ten years later, the world we live in is even more dangerous, and it’s because he’s the one running it. He has taken over his father’s outfit, and now he’s got a target on his back. Coming from an enemy crew, I can’t be the reason more trouble finds him.
But when our lips touch again, I forget everything else. When he brings me into his home to keep me safe, I feel myself forgetting all the reasons I left him in the first place.
When you run from your past, it always catches up with you. Ours is knocking, and if we’re not careful, we will end before we ever get started.
Dominic is wanting what he thinks he can’t have. Scarlett also wants something she doesn’t think she can’t have. It’s at that point that this sounded like it was going to be an interesting read.
They both have complicated lives and that’s what caught my attention. The author knows when to keep things sweet and when to turn things steamy – with a side of mystery and suspense. Her scenes flow nicely from one to the next, albeit a little too quickly – wanted to savor them just a little longer.
I liked being able to go back to the past in order to see how it has affected their future. We also have a secondary character that is important to what is going on. If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out her story in The Rook – reading that first may be a good idea. One idea that may seem similar in this story is how the children always seem to pay for the sins of their parent.
In this case, without that we wouldn’t have the piece that connects our main characters. And wondering how those sins get rectified is one thing that will carry you to the very end. That and don’t you want to know if there’s a happy ending? Or does our author have other ideas in store for her readers? And until you get there you’ll never know.
