Tensions escalate in the second part of the new Anything He Wants series!
Reunited with Jeremiah, Lucy is forced to come to grips with the decisions she’s made in his absence. The billionaire is as insufferable as ever, but just as determined to protect Lucy. From the Caribbean seas of Jamaica to the man-made islands of Dubai, they must travel halfway across the world to find out who is trying to bring down the Hamilton family.
But it may be the woman who comes between them that tears the two brothers apart forever. And can Lucy bear to live with the consequences of her actions?
We open these chapters with the return of Jeremiah who has somehow managed to locate Lucas’ (Loki’s) ship and has come to rescue her. The problem of course being that nothing is ever that simple. especially when dealing with the Hamilton brothers. Lucy is torn between what she’s done and what Jeremiah means, and it gives us a tension ridden story.
The interesting thing about this installment of the series is that there’s not too much steamy-ness so to speak. What we get here is a lot of internalization from Lucy’s part on what she wants, what she can admit and deciding what that means in the future.
This story takes us from the ship to the Caribbean (i believe Jamaica) and then overseas to Dubai. It’s quite interesting to me to see the dynamic there and to meet the folks that we do meet. What’s even more interesting to me is that we don’t quite know what the role is of the folks that we are introduced (namely Rashid) and what his relationship is with Lucas that has taken them overseas in the first place.
I really enjoyed this middle ground of the series since it gives is a chance to take a break from sexual tension and really get at the heart of things. you see the brothers trying to make a move against each other while potentially realizing that there’s more to their story – and you see Lucy caught in the middle. not that she doesn’t know what she wants, but she’s afraid of the implication to her actions.
can’t wait for book 3 in the Castaway series!
