I don’t normally read/listen to these types of books; I like my sweet HEA, but this one . . . Abbie Roads uses such vivid descriptions that severa..Show More »l times I had to close the book to clear the visual from my mind. It’s that good.
Xander Stone, after being hit by lightning, was given the gift, or curse, of being able to hear people’s thoughts. The police use this ability during their interrogations. For years Xander was plagued by an internal voice begging him to save someone, an unknown woman. He drank until the voice was silenced.
Isleen Walker and her grandmother had been held captive and tortured for eight years. The only thing that kept her alive was her frail grandmother’s promise that her savior would come and save them. It was too late. The last stabbing in her side would be the end of her, if not Queen would finish it in the morning. Grandma lied, he wasn’t going to rescue her.
The story is so involved and intense that you don’t know where she is going to take you next. Your heart starts to calm down and she scares you with something else.
I thought book 1 was good (and it was GREAT) but this one... this one had me on the edge of my seat! Literally. Talk about a wild ride on the preverba..Show More »l, yet literal crazy train. I really can't wait for more from this author!
Lathan has his work cut out for him when he first meets "Honey" (Evanee). She is in trouble and her step brother, aka the man who needs his nuts cut off, gets in Lathan's way of helping. Needless to say THAT didn't go over well. LOL After that Lathan, being drawn to her the way he is vows to himself to keep her safe. Though.. trouble always finds this poor girl. If it's not one thing it's ten other things all coming at her, fork tines bared and ready to take a stab at her.
Lathan, while trying to track down a serial killer, and now keeping an eye on Honey gets wrapped up in a tangle of webs that almost gets him and Honey taken down for the count. Multiple things pile up on his door at once. If not for their connection all could be lost...
It's a fight to stay alive. It's a fight to keep the woman he loves.. and it's a fight to make it all work out in the right way, and not end in spilling more blood.
