“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”

I knew that giving in to Vincent Sorenson was a risk, but it was one I was willing to take. I had hidden my heart for so long and for the first time in a long time, Vincent was close to breaking down the walls.

When a trip to Vincent’s exclusive private island reveals the real Vincent underneath the layers of suave nonchalance, I thought we were close to the start of something special.

Just when things were looking up for us, I would discover the one secret that Vincent never intended for me to find.

My Review:
Actual Rating: 3.5 stars.

I thought this book was better than the first installment though I still had some issues with it.

Character development was stronger in this book, mainly because it centers on Vincent and Kristen’s romance. I enjoyed the world-building as Kristen was shown a taste of what it’s like to date a wealthy, successful, man.

The romance is smokin’ hot, just as I like it!

The main issues I had again were underdevelopment of the plot. Kurt and Bernie were so obvious it was almost laughable. Poor Riley is relegated to the sideline which was a shame as she seemed like an interesting character in the first book. Kristen’s ex, Marty, makes an appearance but then disappears again. While Vincent took this seriously, Kristen was way too flippant. She’d been having nightmares about the guy for years and she was too easy-breezy about it.

The writing remains very good, but this series is still not hitting it’s true potential in my opinion.

I received a review copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
