When I picked this book, I didn’t really know what to expect. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read from Skye Warren so far, and this one is not an exception. I was pleasantly surprise when I realized that the male MC was Elijah North, Liam’s brother from the “North Security” trilogy.

Holly has always been the most reserved of her family. In a house full of wanderers, she only wanted a peaceful place and a good book. When her sister gone missing, she travels to France to find her. Her plans are interrupted when she’s kidnapped from the airport and thrust into a cell. There’s a man in there with her, a man she met 8 years ago, Elijah.

Elijah North is a mystery. Even after finishing the book, I still don’t fully know who he is. There are too many questions about his life. He has a dark past and an even darker present. Holly is the first person that he cares about. The first woman he bends the rules for.

I crash against the rocks, not because she sings. I crash because she exists. Because I’m weak and she’s strong.

There are too many secrets and hidden agendas. Nearly everyone is hiding something, and Holly is the only one not knowing what’s going on. The trilogy started off really strong and I’m looking forward to “Gold Mine”. I’m eager to see how their story will progress!!!
