I know I’m never going to change.
I was born in the darkness, and that’s exactly where I’ll remain.Rome is sweet, gentle, and vanilla.But I’ll change all of that.I’ll show her who I really am.
And slip that black diamond onto her finger.
The story continues – lulling us into a false sense of security with this couple, knowing full well that there are so many secrets that each is hiding that it’ll all combust.
Calloway, true to his nature wants nothing more than to be able to take care of Rome. To cherish her and enjoy her and to protect her. She wants that but not in the way that he’s thinking, because he’s got this dark side that he still can’t let her know about. The story here takes us on the journey where we see them go to new lengths in how they feel about each other, and then hit a wall.
Rome still has the same challenges that she faced in the first book. She’s trying to dig herself out of debt, trying to forge her own path and name in the industry and try to stay safe. All while being true to herself and Christopher. when her stalker comes knocking again, and her apartment is broken into, well Calloway has no choice but to make changes for her. Convincing Christopher to move so that she can move with him, and offering her a job that’s leaps better than what she had before.
Their chemistry and intensity don’t fade at all here. We see that they are closer than ever, they have a connection that most dream about, and theyre so hot that it’s combustable. Just when we think that things are going to be amazing, someone learns something they shouldn’t, and Calloway’s secrets are out.
It’s a struggle for these two for the back half of the book, and so much sadness and hurt are the theme for here on out. There’s no compromise that they can make that will put things back together, and there’s honestly no way that they can find their way back to one another without giving up too much in exchange. We’re left off at a point where decisions are made, and they aren’t good ones, and we don’t know what that means for the future. So, that means i have to dive back in now to the third book to see where we’re going. Enjoy!
