The third book in the beloved #1 bestselling author's sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series…
They say young love doesn't last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his"Gracie"—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.
Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.
Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He'll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they'll never be torn apart again
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
Zack just can't figure out why Gracie hates him so much. What happened? Zach had lifelong plans and then one day Gracie just disappeared from his life without a trace. And then 12 years later Zack will run into her. They were so happy for so long and now she won't even be in the same room as him. Zack's world has slowly started to crumble around him while he search for her and now he has to keep her safe. But how? Zach has a very soft heart that is torn in two with everything that he has to deal with and now he has to protect everything around him.
Maya Banks tells a great story and is able to get the reader engaged. She has a way of making the characters come alive without losing the connection. There were a lot of emotions all tied into this one book that had you feeling for Zack and how he was being torn apart. There were many different directions that the book took you in to keep you wanting more and turning each page. I enjoyed the bond that Gracie had with the others. There were a few parts that seemed to be repetitive, but overall very well written. Lindsey, Reviewer for MNP.
