Finally making a life for herself in New York she receives a mysterious letter from her Handler telling her it's no longer safe, take nothing but the secured belongings in a locker at the airport and head to Denver where a new identity, apartment, money and job awaits her. She goes without question. Why wouldn't she?? This "Handler" guy saved her life once before even though she has no idea who he is, how he's connected to her parents murder and why she's so important to keep alive. At the airport she makes googly eyes with a drop dead gorgeous guy who she happens to be seated next to on the plane. Liam Stone just happens to be a billionaire prodigy architect from the young age of thirteen who is now the most sought out architect in the world.....pppht please! Why do authors always have to make the male leads, gorgeous and sexy beyond belief, billionaires and control freaks. Yep, that's what he is. He's controlling and bossy but utterly perfect it's ridiculous. Don't get me wrong it's hot in the bedroom but it is over the top when Amy can't make her mind up and switches between angry and confused one second to suddenly in heat with her vagina gushing wetness to pushing him away. She wants him, she doesn't. It's not safe to be with him but she does and then tries to leave but five seconds later changes her mind.
The first half on the book goes like this. I got bored and frustrated. My other reasons for this is their relationship evolves super quick. They go back to her apartment and get it on. He just wants to f her and leave but spends loads of money on her despite her objections. Then that night decides she's different and wants to stick around. He's sweet for wanting to care for her but it's unbelievable how fast they progress. He's asking her to never leave him after like 2 days and he obviously knows something doesn't add with her. To tell you the truth you won't completely trust Liam and for good reason after what she's been through and odd coincidences that seem to occur.
The same goes for her neighbour Jared. You don't get to know much about him but you can't help but feel he's involved somehow.
Look I gave this book 3 stars because the second half to 3/4 way through finally gave me something more interesting to read as Amy finally decides to actually research and try and find out whats going on. (I couldn't believe she hadn't already tried)The ending was good enough that I'm now waiting to read the second installment. I want to know who's who, where and what the hell happened to her family.
Going by all the raving reviews I'm in the minor majority who wasn't completely taken at first but for the price of .99cents I think it has potential and in the end draws you in. Have a crack.
