Book Description: Haunted by a past he’s struggling to forget, Blaze once again finds himself a VC Warrior—something he swore would never happen. Confident he could easily walk away again, his connection to a certain redhead makes that decision harder than he imagined.
Trying to fit into the Warrior world, Katrina holds a secret that could ruin the new life she is fighting to fit into. And having feelings for a certain Warrior does not make things any easier.
As Blaze’s past catches up to him and Katrina’s secret is exposed, they discover a deep bond that neither can fight. It soon becomes clear that a past can be put to rest, but secrets can be deadly.
Captivation: After reading the very ending of the prior book, Sloan, I could not WAIT to read this one. This book was not nearly as exciting I was expecting. It’s a good book, but the tension and suspense indicated based on the end of its predecessor were sadly lacking.
Sizzle: The exciting build-up to the intimate scenes with a lack of resolution to them continued in this book. The scene is rather enticing initially, but ends with a quick summary.
Romance: I’m not sure how to explain this section. I was fascinated with Blaze and the potential of his story when he was first introduced. Katrina was also a truly fascinating character. I was somewhat disappointed in the development of their relationship and story. It just seemed to lack… something.
Enjoyment: This book wasn’t what I was expecting. It has a couple of good scenes, but it wasn’t the absolute attention-catcher I was expecting.
Literacy: I did catch a few minor, common editing errors, nothing horribly unexpected or distracting. – Really no change here from the prior books in the series.
Overall, This book was okay, but was disappointing after the many pretty great books that came before it.
