Volume 1 is an introduction to the protagonist, Bobby Owens and to the Taylor cousins, Kristen and Jennifer. At the age of 8, Bobby tragically loses his parents and sister in a plane crash. He lives with his grandmother for a few years until she dies and he is placed into foster care. This is a story of the young man who has to cope with incredible loss and with being shunned by society because of his "delinquency" (everyone suspects he is aberrant because he is in foster care).
Bobby, like other teens his age,appreciates the fairer sex. Jennifer is an attractive young lady who can be quite malicious yet because of her beauty, has boys falling for her. Kristen is also attractive but her strengths are her intelligence and kindness. Bobby and Kristen develop a relationship because of the mutual intelligence. Bobby is attracted to Jennifer for her looks. [As far as sex scenes go in the novel, I think there are three; one slightly explicit, the others very tame but all are only a paragraph long].
Volume 2. There is a terrorist plot and we see some true heroics and some sheer pain. In Power's own words,
"We've been perpetrating atrocities on each other for so long, it's a wonder they retain the power to appall us. The depths to which man can descend seem beyond belief. Yet, in responding to the outrages, man also demonstrates the heights to which he can ascend, sacrificing his own life if necessary to protect the innocent and defenseless.

I bought this book because from the blurb the storyline sounded very interesting. But then it felt like I was mired in a sordid teenaged drama and it just staggered from one sex scene to another.
Perhaps I am the wrong audience and it is meant for a younger readership.
In my humble opinion the author wants to be too erudite and in the process becomes a tad verbose. In writing less is best and plain language can be captivating.
