Totally getting into this series love how the novels run parallel to each other until they catch up and pass the previous book!
New Adult/ Contemporary Romantic suspense: Contains adult content
After one heartache too many, Valerie Zuniga vows to never let Alex Moreno hurt her again. A year later, she is forced to reunite with him at a party where one unexpected sizzling kiss tells her she’s far from over him. No way will she allow herself to get sucked back into that torment. She’ll resist him even if that means using the one thing that’ll stop Alex dead in his tracks: another man.
Alex is coming off one of the worst years of his life. He spent so much time wallowing in self-pity, he never realized how much he’d missed Valerie. That is, until that kiss. Now, he’s determined to get her back one way or another, and no other man will stand in his way. Especially after discovering that Valerie may be in danger, a danger he blames himself for.
Going into this series I was a bit unsure because I don't read Young Adult books which I classify as high school age and under. Book one did start in high school but in senior year for the mc's. Book two....this book actually starts with the characters having left school and are busy creating their careers, so this book is definitely New Adult which I am finding that I enjoy. The great thing about this series is you have already met the characters and have already formed a "relationship" with them so when it comes to their stories they are already multidimensional with in depth backgrounds. This allows the author to focus on their story and friends more which leaves the reader extremely satisfied. I totally enjoyed this book I love how ER creates the suspense and intrigue in her novels. I was totally freaked out for Val and loved how Alex had to do the chasing this time. The writing is wonderful it flows comfortably and you just don't want to stop reading. In my case I was listening to it on audio and loved the narrator. I had my MP3 player glued to my ear for a day and a half:) For me it was a all nighter and today I am a very tired reviewer.
I am giving this book a strong 4 bears it would have been 4.5 however I did feel that Val strung Alex along a bit too much. I was over the angst long before she was..But boy oh boy it was muy caliente *sizzle*
READ RATE REVIEW......your opinion matters!
