For more than three years Justin pursued Caitlin with a single-minded purpose, knowing she was the one woman he would do anything for. That resolve was tested when a member of his own family nearly destroyed Caitlin. Now, faced with the realization that she would be better off without him, Justin will do the hardest thing he has done in two hundred years of living and walk away from the woman he loves.

Surviving the most traumatic experience of her life unlocked abilities Caitlin wasn’t sure she could handle and created a memory she wasn’t sure she could live with. Aided by a powerful empath, Caitlin has learned to control her own abilities and discovered that she is even stronger than she ever imagined. The only problem now is that the man she loves has decided she would be better off without him. Never one to let others control her life, Caitlin will do whatever it takes to prove to Justin how wrong he is.

My review 3

Why did I want to read this book?

I was intrigued to find out the back story of Justin and Caitlin. Plus, I always love heroes who have been in love with the heroine for a long time already. It’s always interesting to see the dynamics between the characters in that kind of set-up.

 

What worked for me?

The thing that I loved most about Justin and Caitlin and their story was the obvious fact that they do complement each other very well. Justin seems like the quiet and steady guy but with a wild streak as well and Caitlin is no pushover but she has a good head on her shoulders and obviously a kind heart as well. They’ve been in a relationship-esque status quo, being together without officially being together, if that makes any sense. They haven’t really defined what they are together but they are in each other lives. And while it was a little heartbreaking that Caitlin’s abduction had been the catalyst, I was glad to see them move forward to the next steps of their relationship.

I love the chemistry between these two. They have that passive-aggressive thing going on, especially in the beginning, but it’s more of their form of foreplay than anything else more serious. It’s always entertaining watching them bicker but at the same time, you feel incredibly certain that nothing will ever come between them nor will they ever allow anything to anyway.

I also love the emotional bits that we get from this book. I mentioned earlier how strong the chemistry was between these two so you don’t have anything to worry about with the sexy times in this book. But I’m also glad that there were heart-tugging scenes that made me feel closer to both Justin and Caitlin and made me root even more for their HEA.

 

What did not work for me?

I thought there would be more of that struggle between the two with how they’re dealing with the aftermath of Caitlin’s abduction, Justin with his guilt and Caitlin with this anger at Justin for continuing to treat her as breakable, and of course more of Caitlin’s seduction of Justin. So I was basically been left wanting more on that front. But it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the rest of their story.

As for the writing, I wanted it to be a little tighter. There were parts when I felt the conversations were a little contrived and some transitions between scenes felt a little ragged. I appreciated her writing more in her Moon Virus series.

 

My over-all take on it?

For those who have been waiting for Justin’s and Caitlin’s story, this book will definitely be a treat for you guys. For newcomers to the series like me (who have read this book as well as Book 3), it was a good journey getting to know these two characters as well as the others in this world that Cassandra Lawson created. This one was a quick and sexy read.

 

My rating: I liked reading it.

 3-5 stars

Excerpt

 

It felt like someone had shoved a bunch of cotton in his mouth. That was Justin’s first thought after regaining consciousness. Second, he thought about all the ways he could kill Aiden for drugging him, Okay, maybe not kill Aiden, but he intended to cause his cousin a serious amount of pain. As his mind became more focused, he realized he was tied to a bed. Not just any bed; this was his old bed in Nathaniel’s house. The room was still his since he stayed here if he had a lot of work to do. Most of his stuff was still here.

“What the hell?” he asked no one in particular. Being tied to a bed was more of an annoyance than anything else. He could easily snap the bed posts, which Aiden would know. Meaning this had to be a sick joke.

“Glad to see you finally decided to wake up.” Those words came out as a sexy purr from the corner of the room. In the darkness he couldn’t make out her features, but he easily recognized Caitlin’s voice.

“Care to explain why I’m tied to a bed?” he asked with mild curiosity. “While you’re at it, you can explain why I’m naked.”

“Call it an intervention,” she said and sauntered across the room wearing sexy black boots, skinny jeans and a slinky black top that rode up over her flat belly. Justin flinched and looked away from her scars.

“Why do I need an intervention? The only addiction I ever had was you,” he said with a sad smile. “I’ve done a pretty good job of giving that up.”

Justin was assaulted with lust so strong he felt it to his toes. His hips came up off of the bed and his erection stood tall. There wasn’t a doubt in his mind that Caitlin was responsible for his sudden arousal. The satisfied look in her eyes and the way the corners of her lips turned up ever so slightly proved he was right. Keeping himself from snapping the bedposts and throwing Caitlin onto the bed was a struggle. The only thing that kept his desire to dominate her in check was his concern for her.

“You need to stop pitying me. Stop looking at me like I’m a victim. Look at my scars,” she demanded.

Justin looked at her. His breathing was shallow. “Untie me Caitlin,” he demanded, sounding more like his old self than he had in a long time.
