Corinne Michaels is awesome. I love her characters and writing style. And just to warn you; even though this is a standalone novel, there are repeating characters and plot lines. I STRONGLY suggest reading The Belonging Duet & The Consolation Duet first.
Synopsis: My life is a secret. His life is dangerous. We’re both stubborn, calculating, and controlling. Mark Dixon doesn’t know what he’s getting into. He doesn’t know his games could cost us our lives. I have to do what is necessary to keep us alive, and that means guarding my heart.
But I know I’m defenseless against him, and in the end, he’ll force me to surrender.
Review: I love this story. Not only did it answer some questions from the previous two books; it gives me another book boyfriend to love. Mark is silly, lovable and often inappropriate but he is truly a good guy. Charlie is the exact opposite straight-laced, by the book and extremely uptight. She is the yin to his yang.
What brought them together happens early on in the book so you don’t HAVE to read the Consolation Duet (but you should). The excitement starts from the beginning and doesn’t slow down at all. Secrets, cover-ups, guns, terrorists and all around conspiracies drive this love story..that’s right I said love story because ultimately that is exactly what this is. To be honest it’s one of those love stories you don’t realize is a love story until someone says something so sweet and loving you’re like, “Oh. That just happened” but only because you’ll be just as busy as they are trying to solve the case. Especially if you read Consolation and Conviction!!
I can’t go too deep into this story without giving up some good information and I couldn’t do that to you guys. So just read the darn book(s). 4.5 stars for this novel guys…
