Zeth Mayfair is pretty much the very last thing I need in my life. And yet with every breath I take he becomes more engrained in every aspect of it:

He has a key to my house.

He knows where I work.

He dumped his strange, mentally traumatized housemate on my doorstep and has driven off into the sunset in search of my missing sister.

I want to forget him. Want to change the locks and blot out his face, scourge his very name from my memory. The problem is that I also need him. I need him more than I need air to breath, and I can’t be without him now.

He owns me.

He torments me.

He’s fractured me.

I jumped head first into this installment after the ending of book 1. Zeth is still one crazy hot as sin mofo and Sloane is still brave and determined. They can’t help who they are, how they won’t change…and there’s no way to get the other out from under their skin. They can’t stay away. As their chemistry pushes them together their lives start to inter-mingle and things start to get dangerous.

The plot is a bit two-fold here. One part is Zeth and his boss Charlie, the other is Sloane and her search for her sister, Lacey. Both are full of danger and I’m not sure who is going to make it and who won’t. I think the plots will end up intertwining more than it appears initially, and I can’t wait to see if I’m right.

The romance definitley moves ahead. Note I said romance, not sexy times. Those are already off the charts. Both Sloane and Zeth realize the other means more to them than just sex. I love how fiercely protective Zeth is, and how Sloane wants to help Lacey, who is important to Zeth. It’s slow and steady, but I can feel them falling for each other.

What am I not as crazy about? The explicit violence. I don’t like to see those details in a book. I know, it makes it real, makes the reader feel the raw grittiness of it all….but I’m a baby and I don’t need a play by play. Off the page would have personally been better for me. Just my 2 cents. I skimmed those parts, I don’t want those visuals. I know these people are bad, yet I can only handle so much.

The ending…oh I would be freaking out if I didn’t have book 3 in hand. Holy cliffy. I’m going to assume everything works out since there are more books, but I can’t imagine what happens next will be stress-free.

Rec it? YES! If you love a suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat along with a steaming romance, this is a must for your TBR!

Happy reading!
