Secrets are revealed in the thrilling third part of the new Anything He Wants: Castaway series!
Every action has its consequences, and the day of reckoning has come for Lucy. Jeremiah Hamilton is not a man inclined to forgive betrayal, and a broken-hearted Lucy is left shattered and desperate to get back home to her mundane life. There, she can nurse a broken heart and try to go back to normal far away from danger.
But the promise of safety is an illusion. Someone has marked her as much a target as surely as any Hamilton male, and believes her to be their key for revenge against the family. There is nowhere Lucy can hide, but her help comes from a most unlikely source.
With lives on the line, can they outwit a predator who is constantly one step ahead of them?
Can you believe how book 2 ended? let’s just say that the cliffhanger that we got there, or i don’t know if that’s quite the right word, but let’s just say that i wasn’t necessarily expecting that, and i’m really excited about what we see as the intro to these chapters.
Suffice it to say, Jeremiah knows how to make an entrance into a room (granted he was already there) and the way that he learned his information and spat it back to Lucy – well that was exactly what i needed!
Anyhow, this 3rd installment takes us from the shaky ground that we’re in both in Dubai and in the relationship with these 3 back to London where even more tension and anxiety are coming from. In the last book, we see that things are more complicated than even we knew, and that’s because we really don’t know who we’re dealing with (among both the known characters as well as the unknown). Lucy managed to thwart a kidnapping plan against Amyrah (Rashid’s sister) but that’s not the end of things. Lucy has gotten her return passage back home and has managed a layover in London. (due to weather it’s longer than anticipated). There she encounters a man who everyone believes is the one behind all of the murder attempts, and it’s odd because he’s made himself known to Lucy, yet he’s not able to be tracked. Being the smart female lead that she is, she puts that thought in the middle of her mind (not quite the end) and figures out what to do moving forward.
While she’s in the airport though, she learns that there was a bombing at the hotel that she just left in Dubai where the Hamilton brothers are supposed to be and this means that she’s even further down her downward spiral.
Luckily, she learns that the brothers are ok, but that’s definitely not where things end. Folks that seem like they are good guys prove us wrong, folks that seem like they are sharing the full truth are clearly not, and the path that we’re taken on here is either a wild goose chase or something entirely different.
What we get back into in this story though is a deeper conversation around the romantic relationship between Lucy and everyone else, and we learn that there’s a deeper pull there. We get to see what that means, and who that means it’s going to continue with.
And as i stated in the beginning here, while i semi-considered the ending of book 2 to be a cliffhanger, book 3 REALLY ended on one. i wonder what’s going to happen next and who’s going to be found to be behind everything and if it makes any difference at all.
I do actually have a few questions in my mind about what we’re going to see
1) What’s the deal behind the leaked information about Jeremiah back in the US? what didn’t he want shared that’s now public?
2) can we trust the Interpol folks?
3) is the 3rd brother really a brother?
i guess we’ll have to wait and see what comes next from Ms. Fawkes!!!
