Wow! I’m almost at a loss of words at this ending! This suspenseful story continues with some angst, twists, jealousy and a whole lot of confusion for Bailey. Kash is immersed into a complicated war with his corrupt grandfather which has him distracted, secretive and trying to stay ten moves ahead of his enemy. Meanwhile Bailey is trying to stay afloat after a traumatizing event by keeping busy with her new school, friends and avoiding disturbing thoughts. A whole lot of moving pieces kept me glued to this story and I found it highly entertaining and hard to put down. I felt Bailey’s frustrations to my core because how strong can one person be? How much faith can you have in a person who won’t share details that can come and bite a chunk out of your soul? I’m going to be over here…rocking…waiting to see what Tijan tosses at me next while she smirks in her chair.


The door opened and Kash swept in.

His eyes were blazing. His jaw tight. His face stone. He was furious. He didn’t say anything. His gaze locked on me, walking to me.

Again. No discussion. He stopped in front of me.

I didn’t notice anyone else’s reaction, because he bent forward, wrapped an arm around my waist, and lifted back up with me over his shoulder.

“Kash!” I yelped.

He wasn’t waiting. He strode forward, through the building.

The door was being held open for him and he breezed right through. I saw Fitz coming behind, fighting a grin and failing. He took the door from whoever was holding it, and I could only guess the other one was Erik. The door to Kash’s sports car was opened. He deposited me in it, putting my seat belt in place and striding around to the driver’s side.

Erik spoke over my door. “Let us drive you.” He was speaking to Kash.

Kash was ignoring him. He motioned to my door, opening his own. “Close her door. I need to drive myself right now.”

His mouth tightened, but Erik shut my door.

A split second. That’s all it took before he had the engine going and was pulling away from the curb. Fitz and Erik hurried into their SUV and they were following us. I was too shocked to start, but Kash wasn’t.

He so wasn’t.

He began, speaking low, fury riddling every word, sending awareness through me. “He showed up.” The venom was almost shocking, but I waited. “If he had hurt you. If he had touched you…”
