The irresistible, blazing-hot sequel to New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams's Forgiving Lies.

Rachel is supposed to be planning her wedding to Kash, the love of her life. After the crazy year they've had, she's ready to settle down and live a completely normal life. Well, as normal as it can be. But there's something else waiting—something threatening to tear them apart.

Kash is ready for it all with Rach. Especially if all includes having a football team of babies with his future wife. With his line of work, he knows how short life can be, and doesn't want to waste another minute of theirs. But now his past as an undercover narcotics agent has come back to haunt him ... and it's the girl he loves who's caught in the middle.

Trent Cruz's orders are clear: take the girl. But there's something about this girl that has him changing the rules and playing a dangerous game to keep her safe. When his time as Rachel's protector runs out, he will turn his back on the only life he's known, and risk everything, if it means getting her out alive.


review

I’m really torn writing this review. I just finished reading this book. I wasn’t expecting the story to go as it did. That is what I love about Molly McAdams. She doesn’t write the expected, she writes outside the box. She is one of the only authors I know that can rip your heart out with her words and have you still want more.

I was so scared to start this one, I was dreading the (Molly) as I call it. You know, what she did in Taking Chances. Thankfully that did not happen, but the emotional roller coaster was there and it was one hell of a ride.

Kash is of course, Kash. Sweet, dominating but my heart was breaking for him. I wanted to jump into my Kindle and give him a big hug. At about 75% in, I was torn. I felt the same as him to an extent, but I hated how he was dealing with the situation. He redeemed himself in the end and I am still in love with him, maybe even a little more now.

Rachel, WOW! That girl can deal with some real crap. What happened to her, and how she dealt with it was amazing. Even though at one point I wanted to strangle her, I understood why she was doing it. This book really makes you look at heroines differently. Molly writes such strong female characters and puts them in the worst situations. But, they come out fighting and it says a lot to women out there.

The plot was once again a shocker. I did not anticipate it going that way, at all. That’s why I love her books. It was fresh, kept me on the edge of my seat and never a dull moment. I’m sad to see an end of Kash and Rachel, but I hope to see Mason get his own book.

About Molly McAdams

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
