I LOVED this book and could not put it down! Talk about DRAMA!!! It was done in a way that had me sitting on the edge of my seat and needing more and then BAM it was over and there is so much I NEED to know! The pain in this book that connects the characters and they don't even know it is absolutely heart breaking! The love that is in this book in unconditional and so strong that nothing good can come of it! Bad things can happen when someone is desperate to protect those that they love and that have been so deeply hurt, that one would do anything to keep them safe! The next book can go one way or another and I am scared that there won't be a HEA ending and I NEED a HEA ending for this series! I cannot wait for book 2 and this was an easy 5 star rating. Excited to see what N.E. Henderson has for us in the future!!!
