Sam Crescent takes on such a serious subject matter and entertains while informing. Lewis Cox is a hero in the truest sense of the word and the fact that he doesn’t see himself as such makes him all the more one in my eyes and in Mandy’s. Mandy is such a complex leading lady. Having so many layers to her personality due to her life experiences makes Mandy such a fascinating person. The reason being that everything is laid out there. We see what she had to do to survive and how she judges herself for her actions goes a long way in revealing how strong she is. I loved the fact that these two people are so interwoven in so many ways and how it affects their expectations and their current relationship. I enjoyed how deep the emotions ran in this story and how much suspense and action was also incorporated but didn’t interfere or overpower the romance. This was my first story in this series and I’m looking forward to reading many more as I love the idea of What Lewis and his friends are doing. If you are looking for a beautiful and hopeful love story, this is the perfect book for you.
The Story: As a teen Lewis Cox witnessed his young neighbor get kidnaped and he felt responsible so he made it his life’s mission to find her even when he was told to give up. He made his millions, infiltrated traffickers, rescued Mandy and countless others but the battle isn’t over. The head of the ring wants Mandy back and although their feelings are strong for one another can these two overcome the past and have a future together?
Lewis Cox has devoted his entire life to hunting Mandy, his neighbor who as a child was kidnapped by traffickers. Even now that she’s safe, and in his life, he knows there’s no way he can stop his mission. He can’t let other women live through what she had.
Mandy was raped, beaten, tortured, and left to die—but the memory of Lewis always helped her throughout her life. Now that she’s free, Lewis is helping her take her life back. Everything she missed out on while she’d been enslaved is now hers. Still, her life was tainted, and she’s seen and done things no one should ever have to. She’s guilty, too, and now she wonders if she has the right to love Lewis at all…
Lewis’s guilt threatens to swallow him whole. He is in love with Mandy, and wants nothing more than to give her the life she deserves. When the monster from her past comes back, Mandy’s life is in danger once again, and it’s up to Lewis to save her. Can he be her hero a second time?
