I’m back for book two reviews!
Kayla Chambers knows what love is—and what it isn’t. When her boyfriend turns abusive, she and her son escape to a new life in a place where he’ll never find them. The idyllic town of Paradise, Idaho, has everything she needs to get back on her feet. Survival is her only goal, and the last thing she wants is another man in her life.
But Kayla’s new neighbor, high school principal Luke Jackson, is determined to change her mind. Luke usually takes the fast lane with women, but he can see that Kayla and her son need help, and he wants to earn her trust—even if that means taking things slow. He strikes up a friendship that soon simmers into something passionate and real. But when Kayla’s past catches up with her, Luke knows he has to find a way to keep her safe…or risk losing her forever.
Amazingly, I enjoy this book more than the first. This book touches on a very sensitive yet common topic, domestic violence. And it’s kind of sad to read the violence and the struggles the victims have to overcome.
The abuser is someone who holds power in the society and it’s kind of sad to learn that.
What I hated about the book is the flow of the story seems similar to the first book. Is it suspenseful enough? Nope. It’s not. And the ending for the perp seems sad to me cos it’s too easy for him to have such ending.
I’m going to head to book 3 since the main character is one of their friends who’s been appearing in both books, I would like to see how the ending goes. IS it similar with the other two?
