The note wasn't a threat, exactly. But for Corey Donahue, who'd witnessed her mother's murder as a child, it felt very menacing. Surprisingly, the one person she trusted to show the note to was a man merely renting a room from her—Austin Mendez. Traumatized since childhood, Corey had never trusted men…until Austin moved in.
Six years undercover had caused Austin to shut everyone out…until Corey. The vulnerability she hid from others made him yearn to break down the walls she'd erected around her heart. And with a killer closing in, two lost souls were discovering the trust they'd lost—and much more—in each other's arms.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book had so much potential. The plot and synopsis sounded amazing! I couldn't wait to read it. Then it all went down hill. The ending was very anti-climatic. I feel like the "action" got drowned out and lost by all the "inner thought" and "inner dialogue" each character had with themself. Pages and pages of long drawn out thoughts. It dragged the entire book down for me. This definitely could use a lot of cutting, and maybe adding real drama or action to the story. I mean, after 10 years of not remembering your mothers killer, all of a sudden the memories are there and oh, he's caught. So not as exciting as I anticipated. I really feel this book needs more work before it can be good.
