I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Mason, Mason, Mason!! WOW What a DOUCHE you can be!! I mean we got a glimpse of it during Zach’s book but man o man can you hurt a woman!! Valentine’s Day ….REALLY!!!!????? *sigh*
This book is a cross over from book 1 in scenes so if you haven’t read book 1 you can totally read this and understand what happened in book 1. It also didn’t make me annoyed at the overlay from the previous book like some books can because we are getting a new view of the story.
So Shondra and Mason end up sitting by each other on the plane to their vacation. They have an instant love-hate kinda thing that turns into a fun fling. Mason is up front that one night is all he is going to give and Shondra is ok….at first. As the vacation goes we can see Mason warring with himself over his attraction and need for Shondra but his past prevents him from trying to move forward with her His past has him in cement boots.
Shondra is one of the most amazing characters you can read. She is funny, independent and kind but she is so lonely. She is in need of a one true love to be with her and stay with her. She has never been had anyone to love her unconditionally except her best friend Erica.
This book has me so angry at Mason and wanting to hire his brother Dane to castrate him. It also made me want to push Shondra to Dane because is a great guy. He is a guy who could love her and be the one but we all know …the heart wants what the heart wants and Shondra’s heart wants Mason. When Shondra has had enough and walks away, it killed me and her but when Mason realized his girl was gone……Oh man did I love how she has found her spirt again to put him in his place!!!
The mystery in this book was great. The twists and turn combined with the drama from book 1 had you wondering when the bullets would stop flying. When it all shook out in the end and we see and find out WHY everything was happening I realized I could finally BREATH for a second!! I loved this book and prolly a little bit more then book 1 because the emotional torture Mason puts us in is worth the ride…plus seeing him fall was even more worth it.
