As you'd expect from a sequel, the story continues where the first left off. However, unlike other series where each book tends to be just another episode with melodrama and pages of angst to act as page fillers, this one actually adds depth. Personally I think this book is better than the first and I almost didn't buy it because I thought it would be one of those where the same story is retold from another viewpoint. Surprisingly, what I found is that the plot that was sketched out in the first book thickens as Tristan finds out the extent of his family's wrong doings and his difficulty in coping with that and the effect that it has on his tenuous relationship with Nina. The only disappointing thing is that the story does not end and we have to wait for another volume (hopefully not more) to get our happy ending.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
As Tristan and Nina's rocky relationship continues there's tender loving moments and heartbreaking ones too as the plot deepens and we get to uncover, along with Tristan, the shocking secrets that's been kept from him with devastating emotional consequences for them both. There's also a betrayal, a death and the unknown 'mystery caller' is uncovered and he's an evil powerful enemy to have and he's getting impatient. This time the story is told from both Tristan and Nina's POV and it's great to finally hear Tristan's thoughts and feeling on their relationship as he tries to win Nina's love again and the utter despair he feels when the past proves too much for him to bear alone.
I love love love this trilogy, couldn't wait to continue hearing about their story and I've got to own up that I've been just a wee bit unsociable for the last 7hrs and 39 mins as I happily got sucked into all the drama, turmoil, twists, surprises and the powerful love story between a guilt-ridden loving man and a trusting guileless loving woman.
Worth a credit? So far it's been sweet, frustrating, annoying, beautiful, shocking, hot, heartbreaking and very very enjoyable.... so that folks is a YES and I'm off to beg Audible to get book 3 ASAP.
So far I'm enjoying the series. The story is interesting and the characters work well together when they aren't arguing...
I do feel like there are so many plot twists that don't result in anything. It's like there is a threat but nothing ever comes from it. It's either never talked about after the initial introduction or it's easily swept under the rug.
This series just won't let go. Tristan and Nina are an interesting couple. He stalks her to protect her but finds himself in love with her and her with him. The secret that he is trying to protect her from is the one thing that he can't ignore. This 2nd book begins with Nina leaving the hospital after her car wreck. The car wreck she had when running away after she found out that Tristan's father had been responsible for her father's murder. She has total amnesia after 4 years ago to the present so she doesn't get remember the wreck or what led up to it. She doesn't remember Tristan either but she is told that she was engaged to him and living with him by her best friend, Jordan, and by Tristan so she leaves the hospital with him and he dedicates himself to keeping her safe and making her love him again. He knows he must tell her the secret about their families but he is afraid to do so. His sinister board chairman, Karl, has other plans and Karl is set on getting the information that he believes Nina has so Tristan is trying to keep Nina safe by not telling her the truth. This book is all about the falling in love again by Nina and then more about the secret. Tristan discovers more information that devastates him and he is afraid to tell Nina and rather than take a chance, he avoids her. When she confronts him, he tells her, and she reacts as he feared with tears and telling him that everything between them is based on a lie. She leaves him and goes home to cry and get her head together. He goes home and hears her crying and assumes the worst. To protect her, he leaves without telling her where he is. She tries to find him but he won't let her know because it isn't safe for her to know with Karl after the information. Tristan isn't safe either. So, what a mess??? I am starting the 3rd book to find out what happens next. K.M. Scott is a terrific writer and her steamy scenes are hot. The characters are well described and while I'm hoping for a happily ever after I can't see how it will happen. But, I am a hopeless optimistic so I bought book #4 to be sure I get the answers. Take a chance and buy this series. The two narrators are perfect for the characters.
That this couple is just not giving up
Sure, the writing is good even if there are parts of the second book that were a little slow and made me wonder if I wanted to read book 3
The heart of the story
Never Loosing Love
Well absolutely loved book 1 that is why I purchased book 2, not there is somewhat of a clff hanger in book 2 and I will buy book 3 to see how it ends. Unfortunately book 2 did not capture my attention at times and it was hard to finish so I am hoping that book 3 will bring back what I loved in book 1
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
The saga of Nina (24) and Tristan (29) dragged on for hours: well meaning lies, family misunderstandings, make-up sex, sinister strangers, murder plots and more unprotected sex.
While parts of the story were funny and the writing was engrossing, I was frustrated when this couple did not learn to honestly communicate when wearing clothes.
