As soon as her anxiety and fear began to slowly ebb away, she could see a faint light at the end of the dark and horrific tunnel that she had found herself in… That light was the dark, sexy and demanding Jensen Blake.

With nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, how many more people will suffer at the hand of Anna’s hidden past? Danger, fear and betrayal decide to make an unwelcome appearance and it looks like they’re about to become her new best friends. ~ Add it to Goodreads

I was so enjoying this one, because after the cliffhanger of Obsession, I wanted to know what was going to happen. Did you see the cover? *Sigh* Just smoking hot! I’m stop drooling over this guy’s body I swear.
Some questions from the first book was answered and we get to know who Anna is running from. Actually, the shadows of her past were very close to her door, taking her by surprise. We have more background about her and Jensen. Just for the record, I love how this guy was territorial around her, and hopefully he came to his senses by admitting his feelings for her, even if sometimes old habits die hard. I really appreciated the evolution of his character. He wasn’t an angel for sure but he fought and protected the one he loved. Anna was stronger than ever and opened to people. She was so natural, with her hot tempered behavior. She was such a likable and endearing character. Her past was catching her and collided with her present, and Jensen was almost paying the prize without knowing. I could notice the huge step, evolution for these two characters. This time, we had a valuable addition of second great characters; Jensen’s older brother Mitchell , Minnie (his brother’s girlfriend), and some others ; as Darcie (ex’s Friends with benefits of Jensen). What was interesting that when you thought that you were going on a lead, you. weren’t it was a very smart move from the author. This time the story was on full speed mode, where both pasts of Anna and Jensen collided. From the beginning to the end, I was captivated by their stories and how they had come a long way from who they were in the first book. It was a great series, and I was wondering if there gonna be more books, because some of the characters deserved to have their story too, especially for the wonderful surprise in the end.
