First things first. Yes, this book is considered #3 in a series, but it DOES read as a standalone. You don’t have to read the first two books to follow along with this one. (Even though you totally should, they’re really, really good.)
Once again, Lisa Desrochers has made me one happy little bookworm. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into this read. I didn’t love Sam in A Little Too Far, and then I have the blurb talking about people getting killed, and I’m all, “Whoa! This is not what I have grown to expect from Lisa!”
I was pleasantly surprised.
Right off, I liked Sam more than I did before. I really felt for her, she’s young, struggling, and generally having a hard time. Granted, most of it is through her own doing, but she was like a little lost lamb to me, and even with all of her issues, she started to grow on me.
I LOVED her friend Jonathan. I want to be friends with this guy, even if he is a bit of a pig.
Finally, it seems like Sam might be getting a break. She finds a good paying job (even if it is a bit seedy), and is working to get a place of her own. She even meets a man at her workplace who makes her feel like she’s getting over Trent, the love she lost to her best friend. The chemistry between Sam and Harrison practically leaped off the page. Things are starting to feel promising for our Sam. Then…
Lisa Desrochers made my head SPIN. I had no idea what was happening, I was probably only slightly less confused than Sam. What in the blue hell was going on with Harrison? Or is it Blake?
This is where Lisa threw me. She took this amazing heat and chemistry between these characters and added in a crazy suspense twist. And this is where the story got gooooood. These two people were so drawn to each other, yet circumstances demanded they could not be together. I almost couldn’t stand it!
Each page after page is packed with sexual tension, drama, suspense, even some pretty heavy action, The reader literally cannot put this story down, as Lisa makes us desperate to know what is to come. She expertly keeps us on the edge of our seat (oh, who I am kidding, I was totally reading this in bed)
After many breathless moments, Lisa wraps up the story so well, leaving us anticipating a happy and hopeful future for Sam and Harrison. Or is it Blake? What the hell IS his name, anyway???
