My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book starts off a bit towards the end of the first book and as with that book the action and suspense pick right back up in the continuing mission to bring down Church and find out more clues about the Commander.
Crystal Dean is the waitress that helped them escape with Charlie from the strip club. We find out her story and it is not a pretty one. She is basically trapped working in Confessions to pay off her father’s debt and beholden to the owner as he saved her from the torture she went through as a prisoner in the basement, but it was just trading one hell to another. Her life’s goal is to take care of her college aged sister who suffers from epilepsy and to protect her from the world that she is forced to endure.
Shane McCallan has never gotten over the loss of his sister and the guilt over that means he cant stand to see a woman be abused or suffering in any way. He knew from the short time he’d met Crystal that she needed saving and he couldn’t get her out of his mind. He also knows she could be a source of information on the stopping some of Church’s shipments that range from drugs, guns and human trafficking.
Even though each book is a different couple they take place over just a matter of days and the endings while not like a serial book ending they are cliffhanger-ish as the author seems to be writing this as one long continuous story. Both books are well written and with starting this one from a scene in the first book but from Crystal and Shane’s POV helped to get you right back into the story without missing a beat. I am thoroughly enjoying this series and cannot wait till the next chapter..
