This is definitely an emotionally weighty read, in my opinion. There's a lot more to take in and a lot more to figure out. This story follows Layna Blair and her struggle to stay out of the hands of the people that killed her parents. She is constantly on the run, trying to protect herself, until she can't anymore. She meets the mystery Marine Sargeant, Blaze Johnson, who decides to involve himself in her fight to stay alive. And the story just takes off from there.
Right off the bat, let me just say, I love what Sybil has developed with this story. I love where she's started and I love where she's going. The journey in between was a bit intense. Messy and a bit disorderly. But to be completely honest, even as I type this review, it made no sense to have it any other way.
The chaos of Layna's life and the mirroring instability of Blaze's life -- witnessing these two come together was like a train wreck that you couldn't look away from. They're two extremely flawed individuals that just don't know what to do with their feelings for one another. Throw another character, like Talon (Blaze's best friend), in the mix and you get a full blown mess.
This was a very complicated journey. For me, as a reader, and for the characters. But I understood it. And I'm excited for more! These characters aren't your typical cookie cutter characters. There's a lot of misunderstanding that goes on. Layna makes a lot of dumb mistakes. Blaze turns into himself, and Talon is a bit too headstrong but flirtatious all the same. All of these conflicting personality traits lead to a very fast paced, never simple, always engaged reading experience. And I'm totally in support of that.
While this is not my favorite Sybil Bartel story, by any means. I am still a HUGE fan of hers and of what she's does with her books. I really liked this book, and I liked it even more after I had time to reflect on it. It was a very fun read and it kept me on my toes. I love it when a book can do that!
