Billy is alone, but he’s used to it. After being shot six years ago, the love of his life left him in the hospital, fighting for his life. It left him an empty shell of a man and he no longer wants the responsibility of looking after anyone; he’s barely looking after himself. Alcohol is the only thing he’s interested in. That is until Blake, his old FBI partner shows up unexpectedly.
Heather doesn’t want to be saved. She’s just fine being on her own. She’s fought for the last six years to survive, trying to outrun the mistake that cost her everything. When Billy shows up out of the blue, she’s forced to face the pain that still threatens to rip her apart.
When Billy goes back into the FBI the danger is insurmountable, but he sees no other way. He’s doing it for redemption; redemption for all the damage he’s caused and the monster he’s become. He’s willing to risk his life to avenge Heather, but will it all come crashing down this time, solidifying their end once and for all?
I absolutely adore Romantic Suspense genre, so anytime a book comes up for review, I have always requested it – bit with less time and my TBR and ARC requests over-flowing, I had decided to be a little discriminating but somehow the blurb of this book definitely caught my interest!
This is a second chance story, so you should definitely expect a wide range of emotions with their foundation being heart wrenching angst!
We meet Billy at the start of the book – a drunk of his tush Billy, who has retreated from the world and reality to be honest! His drunkenness is interrupted when he receives a visitor from his former life, who enlightens him on the fact that his ex-girfriend who now works in a strip club is under threat from his former enemy – an ex, who left him in the hospital when he was battling for his life and vanished without a trace.
Heather is a girl who lives with regrets – and really doesn’t do much living beyond eating, working and sleeping. She fell in love with a cop and left that cop when things got tough- although to be fair to her, everything that happened would have overwhelmed any one, so I decided to give her a fighting chance.
This honestly was a little underwhelming read for me – mostly because of Heather – she was definitely all over the place – her emotions and actions left a little to be desired and I couldn’t really connect with her, but Billy on the other hand seemed like a stand-up guy even though he acted like a jerk at times!
But honestly, I loved how the mystery and the bad guys in this book gave me the shivers and although it might have had a predictable plot line – I did enjoy reading this one. Last point, though, it did somehow seem stretched at times, the plot I mean and but it did jerk back into place without too much fuss though.
A definitely enjoyable read for those who would love to leave reality for a while!
