As a merciless criminal spins a web of . . .

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book for many different reasons. Sam Kennedy was introduced to us in the first book of this trilogy. Sam suffered a really serious trauma and hasn't been the same in the two years that it's happened. All she wants is to find someone to help her forget everything and just feel. That's where Max comes in. I'm a huge sucker for the name Max, so I liked him right off the bat. All Sam wants is no-strings sex and Max wants something more. Sam finds that she just couldn't keep away from Max, and that is when the sh*t hits the fan. Max's brother gets abducted by the same kidnappers that Sam's team in the SSD division for the FBI is looking for.

The dynamic between Max and Sam is hot. There isn't much to say about that. They have chemistry, and it sizzles the pages through out the entire book. The one thing I love most about this book is all the twists and turns the author takes us on through out the journey, which most of the book takes place over the span of only a couple of days. The author keeps us engaged and interested through out. This book wasn't predictable. Which is really hard for an author to accomplish, and I think Cynthia Eden did a fantastic job keeping me and the edge of my seat.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and a good mystery. I suggest you read the other two books first because they go in order. At the same time though, this could be read as a stand alone, it just might be a bit more difficult to understand until certain things are explained.Pin It
