Blurb: WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THE PAST REFUSES TO STAY DEAD AND BURIED?

Six months have passed since the explosion at Platinum Industries.

For the first time in our lives, Bandit and I knew what it felt like to be with a loving family, and it was a lot like getting to eat a main and dessert every day, for every meal (and having starved on the streets for so long, everyone knows how much I like my food).

Things were going great and we were about to celebrate some joyful news when the inexplicable happened: Sully received an impossible message from his past, then my own demons caught up to me. Even Bandit wasn’t happy, unable to get the stray we recently rescued to like him. For whatever reason, the two dogs could not get along.

In no time, our close unit fragmented as we were each faced with our very worst nightmares until I finally found myself alone and stranded, with Sully nowhere in sight. And Bandit? He’d been dognapped. Taken by someone with evil intentions.

The thought that Bandit could be stuck in a cage again filled my heart with fury, but with my family on the brink of implosion and our enemy seemingly invisible and one step ahead of us at all times, just how was I going to save him?

Review: This was just as good as the first. Hell, I thought we were going to get all supernatural for a minute there and that end though, oh goodness, I can’t wait for the third book.

The cover is so eye-catching that I just want to look at it all day. I know that if I was looking for something to read on a shelf at a store and this caught my eye, I wouldn’t think twice about picking it up.

The pace is steady and flows smoothly to keep the story moving even though there’s 103 chapters, they are short and to the point. The story never stalls and I’m never bored.

The author evokes emotion through her writing so that I felt like I was channeling street wise Chase and I was suspicious of everything she threw at the readers.

I have to say that I am very excited to see where the story goes from here, keep ’em coming.

Now, will the readers get to see Pixie again? What about Chase and Gideon? I do love that this isn’t a romance but I just can’t help but to wonder about them.

Even though the first book was supposed to be a stand alone, I am very happy with the direction the author took it, I can’t wait to see more from her and I am very thankful that she’s allowed me to tag along for the journey.

Thank you for reading my review,
