When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future—but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time?
Now I have to say that I was much more pleased with this book I hated Anthony in the first book, I did have moments of aww with him where I started to kind of like him but they were few and far between. This one for me was MUCH better than the first! I really liked this one.
There were so many twists and turns that I did not see coming. I didn’t have any friends that read these books that I could text because I wanted to! I needed to talk to someone about what I thought. BUT had no one that has read them. So I had the turmoil going on inside me alone 😦 haha.
So to start off Clair gets a pardon. Some of my favorite things would be the quotes that she puts at the beginning of each chapter. 🙂 It’s the simple things. So there is a lot that goes on in this one A LOT! So we get to meet Harry who is Amber’s brother and Phill who is a PI that is hired by Anthony to keep an eye on Claire. These are the people who take a big part of this book. Amber if you remember was in the first book she was the fiance of Simon Johnson who was Claire’s boyfriend in College. Okay so now that is all cleared up these are the people you will read about most in this book. Oh and can’t forget Anthony. I can honestly say that I didn’t think that Aletha Romig could at ALL bring back Anthony in my mind but I have to say that yes, she actually did. At the end of it all I did like him and felt bad for the guy.
This book goes back and forth, we get more of what happened in his past with his grandfather so we get more info on that and what exactly is going on. I had wanted to just beat Claire a few times that’s for sure. I was so at a loss as to how she could even think to talk to that man (Anthony). I didn’t understand how it could possibly be even a possibility. BUT in the end it made sense, he is a powerful man who can control MANY things and so I can understand…a little I guess.
There are many moments that had me at a loss and well I couldn’t see how that would work out to Clair’s benefit but couldn’t wait to see how things played out. I kept going and going, I had a few moments of OMG, and NO WAY, along with OH HELL NO and DON’T DO IT! But in the end I think this was my favorite so far. It was so much better than the first one. There is stuff that happens in this one that had me at a loss. I can honestly say that I don’t know how I didn’t figure a few of things out because it was obvious or at least I thought it was when I figured it out and thought back on the first book and the beginning of this one.
Okay so Phill, well let me say I loved the guy from that first interaction in Arizona. I wasn’t sure what to expect of him to begin with but have to say he grew on me. I can honestly say that I was really starting to NOT like Claire’s sister. She drove me nuts! I get that she was just a concerned family member at times but good lord!
If you want something that has so many twists and turns that make you wonder WHY THE HELL did I wait so long to read this series?? And the ending?????!!!! Another…OH man…that ending. What is going to happen next?
