As he enters the room looking like death personified, lifeless and haunting, she knows…blackness awaits.

Aaron Kavanagh is not to be trifled with. He’s powerful, commanding, fierce and currently homicidal. The only thing that matters in Kavanagh’s world is Shannon Kelly. She’s the beat of his heart (yes he has one) and the peace to the fury that constantly simmers within him. Without her, his life is empty and barren. Someone took what is his and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.

Dylan Kellerman is lost. The love of his life has been ripped from him, leaving a tattered tortured shell of a man. On the brink of murderous insanity he must battle to find Shannon, even if she hates him. Dylan has betrayed her and he knows she won’t forgive his indiscretions. None of that matters now. All that matters is finding her. As long as she’s safe Dylan can continue to live a sad wasted existence without her by his side. Shannon brought Dylan back to life, without her in the world he’ll cease to exist.

Shannon Kelly is gone. Stolen from her home and loved ones, she must now fight. Fighting has never been an issue for her, but this is a new opponent that she isn’t prepared for…her past. When every reality she thought she knew is called into question, Shannon learns her life isn’t what she thought it was. With the promise of a future with Dylan stolen from her before her world implodes, Shannon must rely on the family that has protected her for the last thirteen years to come for her. She won’t win this fight on her own…Shannon is going to lose.

You really need to read book 1 in order to continue with this book as this picks right up where the major cliffhanger left off – and boy was that some cliffhanger.

It throws you straight in full throttle and this had me on the edge of my seat until practically the end of the book! It turns out I was wrong about Kel from my initial feelings in book 1, though his caveman over protectiveness in this book was a bit annoying – though they are justified.

The book is fast paced, and it honestly does have you on the edge of your seat this book takes you on a complete emotional roller coaster from the get go. You think it’s safe them bam something else happens! An absolute fantastic, brilliant read!

This so far is the best series I have read in a long time.

5 stars
