In the second book of the trilogy, Sylvia and Jackson deal with the fallout of her finding out that Jackson and Damien are brothers while dealing with the ghosts that still exist and both of their pasts.
There are secrets galore in this novel as they keep coming one after another. This was bound to happen considering the fact that Sylvia and Jackson are full on relationship mode. He finally learn the truth behind his relationship with Meg and I for one was pleasantly surprised (I say this because it was the only ‘surprise’ that I didn’t predict).
I didn’t care so much for Sylvia in this book as I did in the first book. Jackson did a few things that should have caused Sylvia to give him the boot (or at least make him work for her forgiveness) but she takes him right back with no hassle. She gets mad for two seconds then talks to Cass or Jamie and boom she’s back to forgiving him. One I was ok with, but two, just didn’t work for me.
Jackson really develops in this book. While he makes mistakes along the way, you can see that he’s trying and that he’s changing to try and be the man that Sylvia needs. It is going to be an uphill battle for him but as he starts to see that there are people on his side, he starts to see that it’s ok to rely on other people.
I don’t need to go into the steamy scenes in this book because if you are a fan of J Kenner books then you know. She has the ability to up the stakes with each book in her series, and this one is no different. As Sylvia and Jackson get closer, they start exploring their sexual relationship and we get to see that unfold. Just make sure that when you read this you are not in public, or at least wearing sunglasses, because you may blush during some scenes.
The book ends in a minor cliffhanger. Certainly not as big as some others and not as big as the first one. It’s almost not even a cliffhanger because (for me at least) it doesn’t have the quality that makes you angry at the book. But, I should warn you that its there.
While the story is a bit predictable at times (I may think this because I read a lot of books and all of Kenner’s books) but it did set up what should be a great finale.
