Obsession puts the meaning of that word on a whole new level. Beware a killer who is obsessed – shudder.
This entire series has been a whole new roller coaster of WOW’s! and OMG I did not see that coming, to Daaaaammmmmnnnn that’s hot. The mixture of passion, intrigue and suspense has been like nothing I’ve read before. A truly brilliant, well thought out story.
We were left with the knowledge from the last book that Nick, Julia’s sociopathic ex, had escaped prisoner transport and was currently on the run. That’s terrifying in itself, but he’d basically threatened Julia right before his escape that he’d come after her. Gulp!
While I’d personally leave the country or change my own identity…I know this is fiction…plus, Julia has her daughter, Imogene to think about along with her new boyfriend who is famous as well and Lachlan is heading into his final games before the playoffs. Julia has a lot on her plate and hates the thought of her psycho ex disturbing her now peaceful life. So, I suppose fiction or not, there is a lot to consider.
Lachlan hates being torn between his job and trying to protect his new family, because he does consider Julia and Imogene family. He has proven again and again how strong he is for someone younger than Julia, but he’s wise beyond his years and has battle scars that have aged him as well. I loved his character.
I kept going round and round trying to dig out who the copycat killer was, right up until it was revealed. I tell you what…I was shocked. That’s excellent writing because I would never have guessed how everything played out and lined up to the very end. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
One week. No names. No expectations.
That was our agreement.
We were supposed to walk away after our time in Hawaii was over.
No matter what.
That was before…
Before I learned who she is.
Before I realized how interconnected our lives are.
Before I fell in love.
But our love isn’t the stuff fairy tales are made of.
Demons lurk around every corner.
Good doesn’t necessarily prevail over evil.
And the knight in shining armor may not save the day. Not if her murderous ex-husband has anything to do with it.
But Julia’s never been the type of girl who needs a knight in shining armor to save the day.
She’s the type of girl who will pick up her own sword and fight for what she believes in.
I just hope she’s finally learned to believe in herself.
