This is the second book that I have read from this author and I have to say this one is fantastic. I really liked the lay out of this book and how she wrote pretty much three stories, linked them all together and told a lifetime rather than just the moment that two people fell in love.
These characters had such detail and density to them that it made it really easy for the reader to truly FEEL their angst. The emotions were very profound, the characters were passionate and strong while having significant vulnerabilities.
To me this book was a home run. My only regret is that I have not read the first six in this series. Lucky for me that is easily rectified.
Evan is your average guy that has inner demons that he tries to overcome and some past mistakes that he has to learn to live with in his attempt to find happiness.
Julie is strong because of the horrors that are in her past. She trusts no one and for a long time after meeting Evan she doesn’t trust him either. He has to work hard to get through her barriers and find her heart but Evan doesn’t give up.
Damian is the perfect villain. He’s heartless from the start and crueler than cruel. He’s vicious and scary and just a perfect villain.
Great book….a solid 4 stars
