Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him
Finally!! We get to find out what is going on in Amy Benson’s life and why she is on the run!! I felt like the wait was wayyyy longer.
We start off exactly where Escaping Reality ended. Remember that? Heart pounding, jaw dropping moment when Amy over heard Liam and Derek. Amy is running all over Denver, making her plan to escape and hoping not to be found. But, Liam finds her at the airport.
“Run to me, not from me.”
What is she supposed to believe? He’s telling her he is protecting her and that he never lied to her. Making what she heard him say to Derek that much worse. She gets away but not before he tells her he will find her.
She’s doing the best she can. Working in a diner, trying to earn enough money to make a plan and find a safe ride back to Texas. Liam finds her again. He was able to pay a trucker to give up her location. Thing is, Liam wasn’t the only person looking for her. He was just the one with deeper pockets. He doesn’t give her a choice to leave with him and takes her to the only place that he knows is safe; his home. You can sense Liam’s relief, now that he found her and is not going to let her out of his sight. Amy wants answers but Liam doesn’t have them…yet.
Someone wanted her out of New York and now that’s she headed back there, her anxiety and black out episodes are in full force. One thing that hasn’t changed is the heat between the two. Even though Amy doesn’t fully trust Liam yet, her body does. Liam wants her; mind, body and soul and he will do whatever it takes to get her there again. But there are so many obstacles thrown at them. More questions and half answers.
I read as fast as I could. I wanted to know what the he!! was going on! There were some people to show up from Escaping Reality and I was almost changing my mind about what I thought was going on. But that seemed to be my problem throughout most of the book. I know who to trust, and I learned what happened and with whom, mostly. There are some good shockers throughout the story as well but once I finished, I really felt more confused about what Amy had learned. I liked the story but it felt unfinished. I’m sure we will learn more later but I’m not sure about that either. I give it 3.5 stars.
