As book two begins in this thrilling series, Kolson is faced with the aftermath of a choice he made regarding Gabby’s safety. He made a deal with “the dragon” and now it’s time to pay up. What Kolson does has devastating effects on Gabby, and she’s struggling to keep it together. When she no longer can deal with the downhill spiral that her life is in, she takes matters into her own hands and tries to eliminate the problem by digging up incriminating evidence to finally put the permanent nail in “the dragon’s” coffin. Gabby is one smart and strong woman. She loves Kolson with everything she is and would do anything for him. So, this was a no-brainer decision as to what she must do to free Kolson from the monster that is now controlling his life.
This was one sad and unfortunate story, which is told in alternating POV’s from both Kolson and Gabby. Kolson’s life as a young boy was both heartbreaking and tragic. How can a young boy survive such trauma when he’s supposed to trust the one person in the world – his father? Langston Hart was one f**cked up dude! His brutal abuse of both his wife and three sons was mind-munipulating and cruel. The results of his years of torture were damaging for all. Will this monster get what he so deserves? Payback is a bitch!!!
Kolson and Gabby’s feelings for each other are still romantically touching – a little mushy at times – but still swoon-worthy. And, Ms. Hargrove definitely writes some panty-melting love scenes. Fiery and explosive with heat is my take on this couple’s ability to scorch the pages of this book!!
This book, as well as the first one in the series, couldn’t be more enticing! I tremendously loved how the author showed extensive growth in both main characters with their ability to love and trust in each other after having lived through some horrifying and painful times. As they are supported by trusting and honest friends and family members, their ability to move and live life is just that much more meaningful. This installment was my second favorite in this intriguing series!
