Olivia Strohm is a brilliant transplant surgeon who has been to hell and back twice in her life, once as a child and now at the hands of DMH. Olivia has cleverly escaped her captors and been on the run from village to village trying to do what she can to help people in need. She has been living by her wits and trying to reconcile what she had to do to escape her captors. She is a lost, tortured soul, and trusts no one.
Zane expected Olivia wouldn't willingly accept that he was there to rescue her and comes armed with a number of tools to nurture her trust. Olivia however, doesn't want to leave Africa she as is terrified she will not be able to assimilate when she returns home. It takes all of Zane's patience and strength of character to convince Olivia, a woman whose psyche has been damaged nearly beyond repair. There were occasions while reading this story that I along with Zane nearly gave up on her.Read more ›
The addition of Tristan and Rowen was unexpected and at first felt like a weird intruption but it soon developed into a hot well developed second story. If I had one complaint it is about Vivi and Caleb I think they should of had there own book. Their story was great although the tie in to the main story of Oliva and Zane was tenous at best. I know they are brothers but all he did was talk to his other brother Gabe on the phone about Zane. Vivi and Caleb story was really good and felt kind wasted in this book and left with a very unsatsfying conclusion leaving me to hope that they will be a main part of the next book although they arn't mentioned in the sneek peek at the end.
I love the small tie in to the Hard to Hold series. I don't partically remember Zane even as a background Character but I like that this series isn't in a vaccum.
I gave it 5 stars because 4 1/2 wasn't available. 1/2 point off for the Vivi and Caleb being a story on it's own and seperate from the main story, Gabe and Reilly supporting roles were to small, and Cam and Sky from "Promise in the Dark" did not even make and appearence. Stephanie Tyler is a really good author I have enjoyed this one as well as all her others. I am really looking foward to the next one!!!!
Minor nits to pick-- As others have said "sex anywhere anytime though being chased by villains".... OK, I put on my blinders and think "well, life is short! go for the gusto!" Not enough about the characters in the first book, not necessary in a series but its a big big plus for me when authors keep the other characters in the storyline. Two secondary romances gets a tensy bit unweldy and creates anxiety at times, like juggling a rabbit, chainsaw and cabbage. You don't know if you'll get cole slaw or hassenpheffer. A "how the eff did that happen" villain grab at the end and.... one of the oddest 'save themselves' moments at the end where I was thinking "OK, am I the only one thinking just float on your back until you're high enough?"
Otherwise, a good read and a good addition to the series. One star off for above mentioned nits...enough to notice but not enough to make me not want to read the 3rd book.
