Back Cover Blurb:
Despite her relationship status, Penny’s fierce independence and frank flirtation revive Kadin’s damaged heart. As an untraceable killer closes in on them, the more harrowing the stakes – and the closer they become. At risk are their lives and their best shot at love.
The cast of characters definitely took this novel from good to great. Kadin’s past was so painful that I could barely force myself to imagine it. His pain and fear bled from the pages of the novel. I appreciated how he made something productive of it, even if he’d yet to recover himself. Penny’s self-discovery and emotional growth made her a heroine to contend with. The way that their lives intertwined with and bisected those of the supporting cast created even more for me to unravel. It was as fantastic as it was chilling.
Morey’s gritty novel not only takes a look at the harsh realities of circumstance but also shows how love pops up at the most inopportune times, but when it’s right, its right. I definitely can’t wait to see where this series goes from here.
