She literally broke me. Now she needs help. She won't know it's me before it's too late.
Can I pass the opportunity up? No. I should do the decent thing, and let one of the others go, but the need to hurt her like she did me is too deep.
But first, I'll make sure no one else dies because of her.
Truth comes out, but I'm not sure what to believe. Is revenge what I really want? Because right now, everything in me is reaching for HER.
All I can do is try to protect my heart while I search for a killer who suddenly has us both in his sights.
The man they sent used to be someone I loved, and I nearly died when he left me. Can I trust him to stop whoever is killing people I care for? I don't have a choice, because no one else can, or will, do it. I can't let another of my friends die.
Anger and bitterness have changed him, but bits of the real Flag show through at unexpected times. I miss him more than ever, but I won't survive losing him again.
Why do I wish things could be different, after all this time?
Watching these two maneuver around their feelings of betrayal and guilt, and finally acceptance, I could not stop reading. Aden Lowe writes a great story. He is able to blend humor, romance, and mystery that keeps you guessing until the end. This is book two in a series but is easily read as a standalone. But I will definitely be reading the first in this series, and I want to read more about X-Man and Carrie (there's a story there, I know it!).
