Infinite possibilities….

Infinite passion…..

Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breath? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard down, the ghost’s of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

I absolutely love The Inside Out Series and was real excited about this new series by one of my favorite authors.

Just like the rest of her stories I thought this book was well written. The constant verbal rebuttal between Amy and Liam was great. I thought both the main characters were very well matched – physically and intellectually. The chemistry and the romance was terrific. What I didn’t appreciate though was the cliffhanger and the lingering unanswered questions.

I read a book to learn about the characters and their (life) story. In this one we never find out what and who Amy was running from.  I felt like it just left me hanging.

Would I recommend this book? If you read 2-3 books a year, no I wouldn’t. But if you read as much as I do, I would recommend it but I would wait closer to Book 2’s release.
