Jake and Elle were both in book one but in this one we get more of their story. We get to see a different side of them and I could not love them more. One thing I will say is that Margaret McHeyzer knows how to set up her characters well. I liked this pair in book one but I love them in book two.

Elle is running from her past and although she is attracted to Jake she isn’t sure that is enough to risk him finding out about her past. Jake isn’t a dummy though because he knows something is going on. Jake also has his own secrets that control so much of his life.

This was a much more emotional read than the first book. I cried through so much of this book but loved it all the same. I did enjoy this a little more than the first one because of the suspense element that was part of the story. So far I would say that Jake and Elle are my favorite couple.
Gran is as always a wonderful character and I honestly am on the edge of my seat waiting for book three.

About Margaret McHeyzer


**Write something worth reading**

I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.

Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.

My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
