She has no idea what she’s doing. Loose cannons never hit their targets.

And they take out plenty of collateral damage.

Four years ago Lindsay experienced the unspeakable right before me, and I couldn’t stop them.

But that’s all changed now.

When her father, Senator Bosworth, contacted me to ask — demand — that I protect her, it was a second chance. A shot at redemption.

An opportunity to right an unspeakable wrong.

Controlling Lindsay as she seeks her revenge on the monsters who hurt her won’t be hard.

Containing my own out-of-control feelings for Lindsay and keeping up this ruse of cold-blooded distance will be.

Even harder than admitting to her what really happened that night four years ago.

It turns out I don’t have to, though.

Someone else did it for me.

And I’ll make sure they regret it.

  • Continued from the 1st book.

    By Amigee
    If you want to finish book 1 you can't. You have to continued book 2, literally. An unfortunately the same goes for book 2... have to read book three. I guess it's how they make any money. Great book,but I'd rather the 3 books be 1, which is what it is.

    I happened on the first book by chance. Loved it, couldn’t put it down! Had to buy the second right away and just finished it. These books have kept me on the edge of my seat turning page after page waiting breathless to see who the mole is!!!!! Guess I will head to the bookstore for the last. Can’t wait !
  • Unbelievable. Fabulous. Amazing.

    By Possible writer
    Meli Raine writes the best fiction. Let’s just mention that the intrigue of this series is beyond top notch. I have read Clancy, Ludlum, Johansen, DeMille, Cornwell, Flynn, Martini and Thor - to mention just a few of the authors who excel at great novels. This author is in their league. Not only are the intricacies of the plot amazing, but she has believable characters and love woven into the story. READ this series. I can’t wait to get into the next book.
  • Awesome read!!!

  • Totally addicting!

    By Babyraja
    I loved the first one!! I was a lil disappointed that this one was through Drew, especially not backing up to the day he picked Lindsey up from the Island but it still is AWESOME!! I have read all through 4 times now and I've only owned them for a few weeks!! A must have series!! (I hope they make a movie too!)

  • Round 2

    By Dr. KRF
    The second book of this collection has a lot more humor and don't leave me hanging, unlike the first. The storyline was not elongated or frustrated me getting to the point. Now, I'm excited to began the final book in this collection and can't wait to read if everything comes to light...meaning my suspicions were right!!!
  • Must read!!!!

    By I........ME

    Drew and Lindsay fight against family, friends, enemies and political foes. Excited to confirm if or not, those that I suspect are guilty in book three.
