When Drew returns he must face everything that was kept from him and know he may have lost Mac for good. But when Drew begins to figure out more about the serial killer he realizes he may have cost Mac her safety.
This book was an amazing conclusion to the first one!! I remember messaging the author after the first book asking when this one was coming and she did not disappoint at all!
I was definitely on the edge of my seat with all the relationship drama and all the serial killer activities.
I felt so bad for Mac when she tried telling Drew what was going on and then he brushed her off and then never talked to her again for months. I couldn't blame her at all for her actions as I would have done the same! I was sad with the tension that it put on her relationship with Jose but I could understand both sides.
I was so mad at Drew for much of the book and I was impressed at how Chris stepped in. It was obvious how he felt but he still did such a great job at not pressuring her a lot, although you knew what he wanted!
The serial killer was so unique and I really liked how it went!
Another great job by this author!
