We're back in Aspen with ...
Evelyn & Ronin.
Lila & Graham.

Book 2 starts right where we left Ronin dying in book 1.
Does it spoil when I say he doesn't die? No, right? Because he's the hero in this story! He can't die - yet.☺
Well. He didn't die ... but there was ... something. So that obviously makes us wonder ... what is happening with Lila? Something must've happened to her - we're kinda suspecting, but .. ?? Huh.
All so very weird.
Plus Ronin is not really talking to his wife and Evie is scared and insecure about things...
LOTS of stuff to overcome until there might be a happy end on the horizon ...  

What will happen with Evelyn & Ronin & Lila & Graham?
Will there be a HEA???

Book 2!!!!

We're back!
And Ronin didn't die! I was so afraid he would die and then we would get some weird reincarnation/ghost/threesome whatever story! But nope. He didn't die - because Lila didn't die - at least not yet. Hehehe. (I kinda feel like posting this crazy Halloween laughter sound after every line I write in this review! LOL!)

What is happening???
I'm not really sure what's going on - but I will find out - and I won't tell you!
:P :P :P

This was a great 2nd book in this crazy but amazing duet!
I loved reading it. You don't know what's happening, and you don't really care at all. You just have to keep on reading to find out if we'll get our happily ever after!
Amazing duet - I need this on tv asap - it's right up your alley Mr. Netflix - GET IT!!!!

THE LIFE YOU STOLE was the perfect finale in this duet. Mysterious. Heartbreaking. Weird. Sad. Sexy. Crazy. Beautiful.
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Ronin - this one is MINE!


I jumped, shutting my computer, and glanced up at Graham paused at the threshold to my room, loosening his red tie. He always looked handsome in a suit and that red tie I gave him for his birthday. I didn’t expect to see him. My assistant said he was at the Governor’s Mansion. I rarely stayed there, but he used it as an occasional “getaway.” Probably from me. So when she told me he was there, I made the assumption (actually hoped) he’d decided to stay the night and get some work done.
“It’s not even seven.” I tucked my bare feet beneath me, still wearing my navy skirt suit and silk scarf—my long hair in loose curls down my back and around my shoulders just like Graham liked it.
He took calculated steps toward me, completely untying his tie, letting it drop to the floor before working the buttons to his starchy white shirt. I tried to forget my internet search, not that it mattered because I couldn’t hide anything from my husband. He elicited a warring of emotions from me. An icy tingle slithered along my spine, making every muscle rigid, while the warmth in my heart fed on the way my pulse reacted to his proximity, the way it always had done. That never changed. It was how I knew we weren’t broken.
“Did you miss me?” He smirked, shrugging off his shirt, revealing his defined torso—abs for days beneath a thin smattering of dark hair on his chest.
I was the envy of so many women. Every day I reminded myself of that.
“Nice scarf.” He knelt in front of the chair.
I returned a nervous smile, hoping the man before me was the man I loved. Graham untied the scarf, sliding it from my neck as slowly as he’d slid off his tie just seconds earlier. The scarf floated to the floor. Gentle fingers swept my hair off my shoulders, exposing my neck.
With the same feather’s touch, he traced the bruises. “It’s nothing …” His lips replaced his fingers, kissing my neck. “You’re fine. Right?”
I wanted to believe him. Could denial become truth if we just believed hard enough?
“I’m fine,” I murmured, closing my eyes.
“Want me to show you how much I missed you?” he whispered next to my ear.
Was he asking me for permission? Governor Graham demanded me. Pre-marriage, pre-Governor Graham asked … begged me to surrender to him.
