Summary: “I let you walk away, Julia. I let you go, but I can still take you back if I want.”
Four months ago I ran away. I left him behind. The man who stalked me, took control of my body, and claimed he loved me.
Now he’s returned. Like dripping razor blades, he has slashed his way back into my life. But everything is different.
He doesn’t want me anymore.
I expected him to come back, to be sorry. I even planned to forgive him. I should have known that he would discard me like everyone else in my life. But I’m going to change that.
My billionaire stalker has come to say goodbye…only this time I plan to keep him.
My thoughts: From the moment I put down the first book in the series (Drowning in Rapture) I wanted to know more. Cue stalkerish behavior on Megan’s pages to see when she’s going to publish the next book. Well, not very stalkerish, but I did check at least one time per week her blog. And I was super ecstatic when I read this excerpt from the book. So, I was beyond thrilled when the book was released.
I liked a lot that the book was longer than the previous one. I think that helped Megan explore more of the characters’ minds. Cole’s POV was a wonderful addition as I got to understand him more. I really enjoyed that the book also explored Cole’s insecurities, especially the dilemma of what he feels about Julia and what should he feel. He also has insecurities about women in general, which is a first for me (erotica’s billionaire are more or less, well, perfect). That was refreshing and explained partly his behavior in the previous book.
Julia was quite a mess, but a believable mess. She quit her job at the club and started working in a gas station, which also meant moving to a crappy apartment. That’s depressing as it is. Then one night, Cole comes in with his snotty fiancée. No wonder, Julia started feeling sick afterwards. Everything starts going down from that point for Julia. We also get to meet her father which gives us a glimpse in her past and why she made the choices she made. I don’t want spoil everything, so I’m going to tell you there’s also some mystery and murder. If you like your erotica nice and fluffy, don’t read this. But if you love erotica with a twist and maybe a little dark, this will be right up your alley.
My rating: 4.5 stars
