Series: Billionaires Underground #3
With Malcolm presumably dead after a terrible accident, Victoria finds herself in the most dangerous situation imaginable: trapped in a foreign nation with nothing except the clothes on her back. She has no idea what to do next or how to get out of this mess. The only thing keeping her going is the willpower to finish the job Malcolm gave to her, and honor his final request to find Claire.
But Malcolm Cage isn’t the type of man who will go down without a fight.
On a burning plane with only a few moments before it crashes there is only one thing on his mind: survival. No miracle is going to save him now; he only has his wits and skills to live another day.
Who’s alive – how bad are they hurt, will they be saved/reunited or will the wrong person find them first? these are all the questions that you have to have in your mind as you’re reading this third installment to the series. We left off just as the private plane crashed – Malcolm strapped the only chute to Victoria and throws her out of the plane and he tries his best to glide it down and survive. He’s the lucky one of course – he’s not really hurt, comes across a couple that helps him get to safety and then has to figure out if Victoria’s alive and where she is. before anyone else gets to her.
Victoria on the other hand, she’s injured, in the jungle alone, and begins to suffer from her own sickness – in the sense that she imagines that Malcolm is there and that’s what keeps her going. When things seem like they can’t get worse, she just about runs out of food and water and then has a ‘cat’ come upon her one night. Is she going to be it’s dinner?
Of course you know that there’s a resolution here, since we know that we have to find Claire and rescue her, but if only it were that easy. Malcolm knows what they are up against, they go to his condo in Argentina to find Claire all while pretending to have died in the crash. Their secret doesn’t last for long, and they are being hunted. Sooooo close yet so far away!
Throughout this ordeal, we see the relationship between Victoria and Malcolm grow- not only because of the situations that they are in, but there are actual feelings there and Malcolm begins to open up a bit more about his past, how he started his company and his friendship/partnership in business. This is something that we haven’t gotten yet in the series – some of that back story and i think that it’s the perfect time to get it.
Where we are left in this installment again is a lot of great heated scening. These 2 really enjoy each other and Malcolm knows how to please his woman, so there’s no shortage of that here. We also know that Victoria knows herself and that’s something that comes off the pages well!
If only that’s where things ended right? NOPE – they track down claire, and find themselves in a precarious position where they have lost their stealth ness – they have been discovered around the house, and again, the question begs to be asked who will be captured, who will survive and what is the price being asked. The other question that i have is really – ‘What is the Organization’ – i’m really curious about that – since secret societies are always intriguing to me. Oh well, we’ll find out soon i’m sure. ENJOY!
