Series: By a Dangerous Man #5
When Corbin doesn’t return from his latest assignment, Audrey blames and punishes herself, convinced she pushed him away. Fed up with the lack of control in her life, she and her twin brother devise a risky plan to get rid of the manipulative Henry once and for all.
But Corbin’s return changes everything, and Audrey must decide if she can accept the things Corbin has done to buy their happiness.
knowing where we were left in the end of book 4, i think that it’s safe to assume that the roller coaster was going to continue. Audrey had professed her love to Corbin and he didn’t reciprocate. He even sort of pushed her away – at least in Audrey’s eyes, at the same time learning about his haunted past of his first wife who was murdered.
While Audrey’s stewing, she’s left to deal with Henry who still has it out for her since she ruined his chances with Corbin’s bond – and Henry’s tailing her in the hopes that she’ll lead him to Corbin. While that’s going on, Rob – Audrey’s twin is left to deal with what’s going on at the business since he’s still there -while working with Audrey to plot how to get things back as they should be.
So most of this story is more about the chase than about passion, but when we get the passion – it’s as good as always. It’s really just a flashback in a scene where Audrey is hiding that takes us back to one of Corbin and her first moments together – and it’s steamy as ever.
Throughout this final installment of ‘Season 1’ as Cleo has called it, i think that we’re learning more about what people will do to find balance, all while testing their own selves with love and romance. I think that we all hoped that corbin would come back, but in what capacity is still unknown. He said that he was hoping that this last job would get him out of his line of work, but since it’s been 2 months and he said he’d be back in 1 – we just don’t know. I like where this story is going, and since it’s not a cliffhanger – things are somewhat resolved for most, while still rather open ended for others. Meaning, if you use Soap Operas as a base – you know that people are never dead unless a body is found (and sometimes even when one is) and if someone’s in jail, chances are there’s a loop hole that will get them out. So – i’m hoping that we’ll get more of this story – and how it continues is up to our lovely author. Enjoy!
