Ivy Mason’s relationship with her British spy lover, Devon Clay, may be unconventional but when he turns up in the middle of the night she couldn’t be happier. Despite the warnings from friends and family Ivy knows her own heart but she also knows that Devon has the ability to break it.
With many enemies seeking ways to bring him down, Devon knows he can’t stay with Ivy no matter how much he may want to, but when Ivy’s life is put in danger he can’t stay away.
Never knowing who to trust and being betrayed at ever turn, Ivy and Devon must face the odds that their relationship will end up getting one, if not both, of them killed. Are the risks worth staying together or is being apart the only way forward?
Oh wow! The action and suspense wrapped up in this second book in the series had me turning page after page. Ivy and Devon have a very rough time of it during the few months that this book covers. Ivy is put in more danger and wanted by several different factions because of the vaccine that is in her blood. Devon is trusting people who, quite frankly, don’t deserve it. Logan finally admits his feelings but this doesn’t exactly go according to plan for him. And as for Scott…well, he’s a whole other issue.
There were times when I just wanted to shake Ivy and say “Tell Him!” but the constant secrets are once again the underlying issue and causes more problems than they should. I do understand the issues of trust that these two characters have and on the whole they are justified. Let’s hope that in the last book the love they have for each other will bring the trust they need.
Vega, by the way, is a just a first class Bitch!
Exciting and edgy second book in the series.
