Release Date: March 1, 2016
Wade Parks spent his entire childhood trying to escape the control of his abusive, alcoholic father…
As an adult, he’s eager to control every aspect of his own life. Women and building his business empire were only the beginning of Wade’s obsessions…until he fell in love.
Evelyn Banks’ life has been turned around, and she has Wade to thank…
Wade is walking a tightrope to hell, and Evelyn is determined to pull him out, just like he has done for her. With Evelyn’s help, Wade starts to forget his past, but luck doesn’t seem to be on their side. Just when their relationship is stronger than ever, one deeply buried secret is exposed and may be more than their bond can bear.
A twisted obsession is not the only hidden part of Mr. Park’s life…
When dark family skeletons come out of the shadows, it’s sink or swim. There’s a part of his past that Wade isn’t telling, and when it comes to a head, his future with Evelyn is uncertain, and her life is on the line.
With ominous threats closer than they realize, Evelyn might find herself lost in something deeper and far more dangerous than Mr. Parks…
The last story in the series picks up from the traumatic ending in book 2. Evey and Wade have come so far in their relationship but have the secrets they’ve uncovered about each other damaged their future?
There are many humorous moments in the opening chapters, as Evey tries to make Wade understand she wants him under any circumstances. Evey is a strong, vibrant character and in many ways, the dominant force their relationship, as she help’s Wade overcome his past.
Glamour, heat and romance characterise Evey and Wade’s relationship but it’s the passion between them that remains the driving force of their relationship, illustrated with graphic, sensual love scenes.
The plot has some unexpected twists, which threaten any chance of a happy ever after for Evey and Wade and a sinister presence follows the couple’s every move. There is good use of dramatic irony in this story; the reader knows who wants to ruin their lives but Evey and Wade remain ignorant. This builds the story‘s suspense and tension, to a shocking climax.
Despite their emotional baggage and menacing outside interference, the ending is romantic and anything but dark.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
British Author Lilly James is a woman with a wild imagination that has to be set free into the arms of a keyboard.
Writing gives Lilly that chance to escape the real world and live in a world of fantasy with her characters.
When she’s not writing you’ll find her singing terribly to music, curled up with her kindle, or doing something boring like everyday chores that unfortunately need attention.
Lilly lives in Wales, is a mother of one beautiful little girl, and loves reading, chocolate and wine. All in that order.
