The tables are turned with a vengeance in this tour de force love story. Nearly a year has gone by and now it’s Dorothy who is fragmented and lost, while Joey keeps the promise he had made her to better himself—even though she’s gone. Joey talks about what is happening in the present while Dorothy describes what happened before— in the moments and hours after the Glock dropped. This time the stake sare even higher, as Joey forces himself to move forward while Dorothy is frozen in place. But when he learns of a devastating decision, Joey races to find her before it is too late. Truth, consequence, repercussion and modern medicine collide as pieces converge in this psychological, thrilling story, which begs the question: Can love really conquer all?


 

This book was highly addictive and fast paced and gave me so much raw emotion.

Nearly a year has gone by and now it’s Dorothy who is fragmented and lost, while Joey keeps the promise he had made her to better himself —even though she’s gone. Joey talks about what is happening in the present while Dorothy describes what happened before— in the moments and hours after the Glock dropped. This time the stakes are even higher, as Joey forces himself to move forward while Dorothy is frozen in place.

So this is one of those sequels that you must read the first one if you want to fully appreciate this one. I was one of the first to read the first book in this series. I quickly feel for Dorothy and Joey's troubled romance. It seems that these two can't catch a break. The reader is quickly hooked into the love story of these flawed individuals who just want to be happy.

With mystery and torturously small chapters, Selene does not fail to weave another story for these two, that is sure to leave you wanting more. The story is told from the opinion of several different characters which makes the story that much better. A great twist of heart breaking romance with the added bonus of suspense.

Another great book by this author that deserves the hype of an early review tour!
