Love is the most dangerous obsession…
Skye Sullivan is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. She survived a brutal stalker and escaped his abduction, and now she is looking to the future—a future that includes Skye’s lover, billionaire Trace Weston. Skye thinks the danger is finally over for her.
She’s dead wrong.
When Trace’s past comes back to haunt him, Skye discovers that the man she loves isn’t quite who he seems to be. Trace has been leading a double-life. An ex-special forces agent, his military training turned him into the perfect killing machine. He made more than his share of enemies during his time in the military—and as he built his security empire—and one of those enemies is striking back.
He won’t lose her.
Skye is the one weapon that can be used against Trace—his only vulnerability. But he won’t let her go—he can’t. Trace will do anything necessary to protect Skye. Anything. Yet when she discovers the secrets that he’s tried to keep hidden, Skye’s pain and rage may send her running directly into the cross-hairs of a killer…
My Opinion 5 STARS
**ARC Provided by Netgalley and Cynthia Eden for an honest review**
WOW. I totally loved this book and was completely riveted. There were so many twists and turns in the mystery of who the killer was that I never even guessed at the correct answer. It could have been any of them.
The suspense mind blowing, the emotions brilliant and the story was woven together so well, that I just didn't want to out the book down. I NEEDED to know what was going to happen next, I NEEDED to find out who the culprit was.
Skye and Trace are together again in this book and we are also introduced to some new characters, Drake, Noah, Claire, Sara and Anna- Jean. Reese and Alex are also still there and an integral part of the story.
Ben, a man from Trace's past comes to them and warns Trace that there is danger on the way, but Trace does believe him until Ben turns up dead the next day. The message is that who ever it is will take away the most precious thing in his life, Skye.
Trace ends up telling Skye about his military past and how he made his money as she is introduced to former military colleague and friends, but you never knew fully if you could trust them. We are told of a black-ops mission they did and of a failed mission in which they were betrayed and Trace had ended up killing a friend due to it.
The friends and lovers race against the odds to find out who the person behind it all is and Alex the cop has it out for Trace, he just doesn't see him as an innocent guy. In some ways all of the characters have suffered in some well and therefore they all mesh well into the group dynamics. They can see what the other needs, the sadness and strength.
The ending? OMG. I so did not see who it was coming. It was explosive and completely brilliant and I sooooo want to be a fangirl about it. I LOVED THIS BOOK. Pretty much wishing I had a paper version of the book instead of the ebook so that I can be odd and hug it. (Yes, I know, I'm a little strange).
A completely brilliant sequel by Cynthia Eden.
