Usually I am not bothered by the install lust/love. It makes thing easier for me and the heroine. This time though it did and I don't know why. Maybe the problem is that the install love came too fast after the install lust. The main characters don't spend a lot of time in the same room and yet they are in love with each other. I believe the author should have dedicated more ages with the two of them get to know each other. I was more invested in the John and Sylvia's story, which is very complicated. I don't get where Sylva's backstory came from. I haven't read the first book, but if she wasn't introduced then than she should have gotten more time to see her story.

My biggest problem witht he story was that for most of the book, Mari and Alexi were apart and yet they fell so deeply in love with each other. Also Alexi marries Mari without her consent, which I kind of understand why it was done, but I would have preferred it if he had talked to her first.

I liked how some Greek words were used and they were used in the correct way so the book got some points for that. Mari has a personality that's similar to Sheldons from the Big Bang Theory. She is processing things more like a computer than a person. Another positive thing about this book is how Mari involves as a character.


There are heavy footsteps behind me. The muscles of my legs burn—my quads, my hamstrings, my glutes.

I don’t stop.

Sitting in traffic at the end of the alley is a sleek black Porsche. Rental plates.

My hands reach for the door, fumble for the handle.

The thundering steps behind me are growing closer. The door is, miraculously, unlocked. It opens under my shaking fingers. With the last of my strength, a final surge born of adrenaline, I fling myself into the back seat, the scent of leather and new car surrounding me like a blanket.

“What—” The driver’s voice is male, and it swears when a bullet thuds into the metal of the door that I slam closed behind me. There’s a screech of tires, and I slam into the seats in front of me as the driver wheels out into traffic with speed and surprising skill.

“Drive.” I don’t recognize my own voice. It’s harsh, raw, like the shredded soles of my feet. “Please. Get me out of here.”

The driver doesn’t reply, concentrating on his driving as I slowly, painfully, pull myself to a sitting position. I shift so that I can look at him in the rearview mirror.

Our eyes meet, caramel and soft gray, and an electric current burns away the remnants of shock.

It’s him.

It’s the man from the club.

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
