My Review:

Austin has definitely created a winning tale here. The plot of this story was well crafted. The suspense kept me on my toes. The story was both fun & intense. It embodies the romantic suspense genre while also making it something so much more. It’s one of those novels that you simply have to read to experience the true impact.

I enjoyed the in depth development of the characters. I felt as if I really knew them by the end. The different aspects of their personalities that were developed were so genuine. The difficulties that they faced were hard hitting without being over the top.

This was a fantastic read. The story was so real and realistic that I found myself fully enjoying it.
