Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.
With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best-Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far-revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.
This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…
Gotta love how things got set up in the first book and then we see them really begin to come to a head in this middle installment. I feel like what i had expected from Celia begins to come true, she’s just very un-trustworthy and i feel like she’s got her own motivation. Do we find out what it is? I don’t know that we do, but she plays games just as well as Hudson used to, at the downfall of Alayna.
Now…Alayna and Hudson, things seem to be going well for them, they are continuing to develop these deep feelings for each other even if Hudson won’t admit it. It’s nice to see that he at least shows if he doesn’t tell. And he continues to make this book a very steamy read.
As for Alayna, poor girl is so uncertain about everything that she’s willing to talk and listen to anyone, especially a several few that are going to really do her harm. There’s Celia we know who has an agenda, Stacy (the girl who works for Hudson’s sister Mira) whom i also think has an agenda, and Brian, her brother who wants her to just clean up her act and won’t believe that she’s changed. Mira is there to be supportive, Alayna even finds herself back at therapy weekly yet it’s not enough it seems.
When things from her past crop up causing even more secrets, and blackmail, well you know that it’s going to end up causing quite a fight, and my guess is that you’ll see a bit of push pull and running away. When there’s a company at stake, trust is completely broken and secrets revealed, well you can only hope that the passion and connection that these 2 have is enough and i don’t know that it is right now. So, on that note, i have to take a cold shower cause some of these scenes were HOT HOT HOT and thankfully i have book 3 that i can enjoy, especially since i’m on another cross country flight tomorrow AM.
