I am a huge C. A. Harms fan but this is a new set of characters for me. By the time I finished the first page I was hooked. I had to know what happen to Josh. Would he be okay? What is his connection to Gabi? I had so many questions so early in the book.
There were two things that hit me immediately about Josh and Gabi. The first is that they had real jobs, Josh for the FBI and Gabi is a real estate agent. The second is that they have normal names, I didn’t have to guess at how to pronounce them. These both seem like little things in the scheme of the whole story but to me it was “normal” and I love that. Neither of these characters had messed up histories, they were just dealing with their current lives and looking to the future.
The storyline was intense. There was drugs, guns, sex, and sex trafficking. It was not always easy to read and I did not always like what was going on but it was all part of Josh and Gabi’s story. I found it encouraging that their relationship stayed strong through all that was going on. They were able to trust each other, love each other, and be with each other whenever they were available.
The story ended with a HUGE cliffhanger. I have the feeling that there are a lot of secondary characters that will become main characters in future books. I cannot wait for more!
