Could she cope with the notion that the man she now came to love tried to set her free by lying to her in the most dreadful waybut inspite the lies the danger the odds and circumstances Even though I have had a different idea in my head about Cole when I first met him in Carter Reed book 2 I was actually swept away by Tijan's portrayal of his character He literally raditated with this mystic allure of danger and yet he was gentle and poised and passionate and I totally bought that I was hooked I loved the interactions between Cole and Addison the chemistry was so palpable that I could not elude the way it felt in my bones while I was reading about it but at times I also felt there wasn't enough time for them both to grow into the „love“ until the life threatening situation that in fact sped up the very process I loved the tension the thrill the action even though there could have been just a bit of it and the suspensful culmination of the events that was fantastically incorporated in the storytelling combining different tempo and pace And inspite some parts of the plot that felt a bit stretched and the uite slower and mellow ending I truly enjoyed reading and meeting Cole Mauricio and Addison Bowman in this in many ways a second chance romance
