He’s been a pawn in a game all along…
The King of New York is back. And now, he’s got a Queen on his arm. Just when Noah Adams and Avi Linton are finally settling in to their “happily ever after,” another evil is preparing to make a move. This time, the game just got a little more dangerous and nobody will come out unharmed. Determined to protect her at all costs, Noah puts his life on the line for the only woman who ever mattered to him. But that might not be enough.
When the past begins to threaten their future, Avi and Noah must fight for their present. But can they battle against their enemy without descending deeper into danger?
I really, really, really liked it!!! This is the second book in this series (and I think trilogy) and the story picks up where the first one ended. The danger is far from over and Noah and Avi have so much stuff to tell each other, so many secrets to reveal, if they want their relationship to survive. Let me tell you, the plot and the emotions are a roller coaster! The angst, drama and secrecy is on every page and while I love that, I also wanted more happy times. I know, I know…I shouldn’t complain since this really is a great story but I can’t help myself. I wanted more romance! There were enough sexy times but the emotional side of a ‘happy romance’, that’s what I was missing. Other than that, man, there was so much going on. I won’t go into details, because I don’t want to spoil anything but let’s just say that the villain might surprise you. I couldn’t believe who it was and I also couldn’t understand how he or she could do what they did.
I feel like the more I read the story, the more I get to see the real Noah and I really like that. He’s still dominant and can be a real jerk but he’s also wearing his heart on the right sleeve. In this book we get to see how much he really cares for Avi and also his father figure. We get to see how he handles new loss and some news that shock his world. As for Avi, I think I liked her in this book more than the first. She’s stronger and I think she wants now more from the relationship. Above all, she wants answers and sometimes we have to be careful of what we wish for, since the answers we get, we might not like.
All I can say is that I enjoyed the book and I will read the next one, too!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Allyn Lesley writes real stories about real people.
As a teen, Allyn lost herself in the pages of some of Romance’s heavyweights, trusting that a happy ever after was just around the corner. In Allyn’s own writing journey, as in life, she’s learned that people don’t always experience recovery and restoration after a fall. Her stories speak to the gritty side of life where the right choice isn’t always easily identified and happiness not quickly gained.
