The story starts off on the night it all went to hell. Two people are running for their lives. At the time, I didn’t know them but I felt the fear, the adrenaline rush through my blood, I felt the pain, the agony course through my body. When they stopped and did what they had to do, my heart was ripped into pieces. I felt silent tears falling only to fade away after sometime. The prologue was brutal and heart-wrenchingly breathtaking.
To say I am enamored with Cecilia’s writing would be an understatement. I’ve always been a sucker for romance and suspense and this one had both in spades. After the heart in your throat start, we flashback to five years ago when we meet the Caroline and Jack. They did not have a great beginning. When they first meet Caroline is recovering from a great loss and in her struggle does to survive the loss, she makes an ass of herself. Being the person that she is, she endeavors to silently mend what she has broken without of course Jack knowing. I did cringe at the conversation between them and I could not blame Jack at all. Sigh. Jack! What can I say about him, do you know the proverb still water runs deep, I think it was made for Jack. That man is not what he seems at all. Yes he was a douche before but there were reasons. While their friendship blossoms, he struggles to accept his past so that he can forge his future.
While this is happening, I timehop to the present time with my heart trying to attempt to make an escape from my body. The brutal truth of the current situation, the insanity of it all, makes me wanna hug my teddy and think of rainbows and care bears. I want my flashback, I don’t like the current world. Sigh. Alas I had to put my big girl undies and fight the cringe-worthy viciousness. I felt my heart break, my body spasm. The patient being kept safe in the hospital has been through so much. How she survived what she did was beyond comprehension? The world is indeed full of crazy monsters who would stop at nothing to gain more power and money.
Off to my happy flashback moments, the loved who Caroline is as a person. She’s isn’t your typical person of power. And if you knew me you would know how much I totally hate the subject but Cecilia made me love the whole topic. There’s goodness out there, it’s not really all about domination. I loved Mo and Feef, their interaction with Caroline, Bob and Chrissy, the staffs who work for Caro and Jack. To say he’s swoon-worthy would be an understatement. A lot of people doubts his sincerity and I don’t blame them considering his past and the thing he does unknowingly being the villain in his own happy ever after. He’s suave, he’s sexy and he’s damn hot for Caro, what more does a girl want but a man who is totally and irrevocably into her. But Caro is scared of a happy future because of what she’s lost in the past. Would she believe Jack when he says he wants a future with her? Or will Jack unknowingly destroy their happiness? Or will the powers that be who think they can oppress, destroy good people so that they can rule the world?
I really did not expect to be swept away in the tide of romance and intrigue as much as I did. And I cannot wait to dive into book 2 when it is out. This was brutal yet charming, sweet yet sinister in its content. Wanna know more about Caro and Jack, all you have to do is 1-click it to find out.
Conscience here is come for you, book 2 in the series that is the Bellator Saga.
Caroline is a young woman in the political arena who has suffered a tragedy. At the point we are introduced to her, she is trying her best to live life. Jack is a political playboy. Jack and Caroline feed a budding romance. Both of these characters are people that I found to be very enjoyable. While they are romancing, a scene of intrigue is being built. It is quite amazing how Cecilia London builds this story.
As readers, we are given the end of the story in the prologue. We are led into the maze of the past to figure out how the story will end. I'm not sure which component I loved more....the mystery/suspense or the romance. I do know for sure...I WANT MORE.
Thank you, Cecilia London, for an amazing read.
