NYT bestselling author Andi Harper has been on a bumpy roller coaster ride. Her life spun around so fast she could hardly catch her breath. Losing the love of her life she began a new life with her childhood friend Mike only to discover that no matter how bad you want to, you can't grow to love someone. Deciding that she'd had enough of lies and secrets, she cuts her losses and leaves to begin another new life with her son Alex. But old eyes have come knocking at her door, is she staring at a ghost or is it who she fears it is?
How many times can you love and lose? How many times can you fall in love with the same man? Andi wishes someone would tell her, because her once bland life is now totally out of control and as she stares down the barrel of a gun, she wonders how the hell she got there?
Three years in the making, the sequel to Shadows Lost is finally here.
The continuation of Melissa Rutter's 'Shadows Lost' and the story of Andi picks up where we left her twelve months on...
We learn of Laine's past and what he had to cover up. The reason behind his hiding out for so long. What would lead to him missing his first child's first and many more. His heartache as Andi reached out for her best friend but never her true love, Mike.
As things spiral out of control for the newly found pair, the secrets they must keep to close family and friends in a bid to keep the new family safe are imperative. With only one or two exceptions knowing the truth. With that in mind Andi needed to know him as Noah...to accept the life and restrictions that came with him.
With a drug cartel on the go, our speculations are raised as to who it might be within Andi's close circle. But boy, is this just the beginning of the story! The steamy sessions between reunited lovers, the kidnapping, the murders, the psychotic ex, the overdoses, the unending list of plots to do with their story is endless and I literally couldn't stop reading. But the one thing that flowed throughout was the sheer love this pair had...
"Our foundations, our roots started way back then, where I thought nothing would seperate us, and in truth nothing really had. We were still connected, even while apart....not even death truly separated us...we were conjoined and nothing could tear us apart."
I don't want to say much more but all I can do is plead with you to read Shadows Lost and this incredible follow on because I can't praise them highly enough. I was hooked.
The easiest five star rating ever!
