The conspiracy that weaves throughout these books just keeps getting deeper, even though some light is beginning to be shed on what the end game may be. Our Perfect Gentleman are falling fast to cupid, but it’s never easy and Dax and Holland are no exception.
Dax is a golden boy who was raised in a wealthy home by good parents. But that shining beacon has taken a hit and he’s determined to get to the bottom of what really happened to his father, and Holland is smack dab in the middle of it. They crashed and burned three years ago, but this time he’s prepared for the pain of seeing her again. But he’s not prepared to find out what really happened three years ago.
Holland is a woman who doesn’t hide behind a man and takes her career as law enforcement seriously. Dax is something she isn’t prepared for and she’s kept distance between them until it was no longer possible, and as predicted things went kaboom. He’s back and she’s sure history is going to repeat itself. But she’s not so lucky – it’s worse.
There was a lot of volleying back and forth about responsibility and culpability for things Dax did after the big break up three years prior. Personally, I totally got where Holland was coming from and also would find it difficult to look past what Dax did. As to Dax, he tends to fall into a bottle when things get rough and it was good to see him reign that part of his “M.O.” in. He made one destructive decision that way, he knows better this time.
All it takes is a lot of danger and bullets to make these two acknowledge they belong together and always have, stupid decisions in the past not withstanding. It took awhile to get to the steamy parts, but they were worth the wait. The conspiracy has tendrils that spread far and took me totally by surprise. I anxiously await the next book.
