Nikki and Damien are ready to move on with their future. Nikki’s own business is taking off and the demons of the past seem to be quiet. However, when tragedy strikes a vicious blow can the couple survive the fallout to follow. With more secrets being kept Nikki finds her strength wavering and the one person she could turn to is holding back. Can Damien be the anchor that keeps her strong or is their relationship sinking?
Exciting continuation of the series. I love Damien and Nikki’s story and have followed them through thick and thin. Damien’s love for Nikki has never waivered and he shows her at every turn, even when things are at there darkest. Nikki is dependant on Damien to give her what she needs in preference to cutting but during this story he holds back, causing doubts to rise within Nikki which drives her even closer to the edge. Everything is done for a reason.
Damien never disappoints. I have been a fan of his since the opening book and the love, trust and pride he has in Nikki only reinforces my like of his character. He has had his own stuff to deal with and has had to keep secrets all his life so it’s no wonder he finds it hard to open up, even to Nikki.
Although I really like Nikki, I was actually in agreement with her with regards the familiy issue. I’m not saying that she wouldn’t make a great mum and that having a child may alleviate some of her anxieties, but I also know (from experience of being a mum) that children can make life a lot more stressful. Getting her desire to cut whenever life doesn’t go quite right under control would definitely be a starting point as several times throughout this story she reached for a sharp object, so I can see why she would be concerned.
I hope there will be more in this series even in the form of novellas (there is a 4.1 out already). I don’t think Nikki and Damien’s story is finished yet.
