For twenty-three years, Cross Carlson was a playboy. You know the type. Tall, dark, and wealthy. Blue-eyed. Charming. He seemed to have it all so easy. But Cross was harboring a terrible secret – one that helped ruin the life of an innocent girl and almost ended his own.

 Finally out of the hospital, Cross is flailing, scarred in both body and mind and stifled by the weight of the secret he still keeps. The only way to absolution lies in a Mexican convent, and going there could cost him everything.

 If there’s anyone who knows what it’s like to screw up big time, it’s Meredith Kinsey. Just a few years ago, Merri was an ordinary girl with a job at her college newspaper and white picket fence kind of dreams. Now she’s holed up in a Mexican convent, hiding from a drug lord who thinks he owns her.

 What happens when the only way out of hell is with the son of the man who put you there? They say love conquers all, but does it really?

 ***Amber, #NerdGirlAmbz’s Review***

This book is the second in a series. Although I have not read the first book, which believe me NOW I am going too! This book can be read as a standalone. This book has it all! Mystery, love, intrigue, sadness drama, heroism and much more. It is a captivating storyline. The author writes as if she has lived the story. This tells me that not only is she an intelligent writer, but that she also researches very well before writing about specific topics.

I do not want to give any spoilers away so I will be brief. This story takes adventure seriously. It captures your attention and sucks you in. I love that about this story. Cross injured in an accident and left sort of disabled and in pain decides to be a hero in this book. He embarks on an incredible journey filled with drug cartels, drama, danger and undeniable connections. Cross learns new things and travels to Mexico for a search and rescue. There he tangles with a drug lord and makes and unusual, but undeniable connection to a lovely lady Merri. The end leaves you hanging a bit, but isn’t that the point? This author sucks you in and leaves you wanting more. This story is action packed and the characters are beautifully written. They have a depth and creativity I have not seen in a while. The storyline is fast paced and leave you guessing at every turn. I constantly found myself thinking I knew where this story was going and I was wrong EVERY time. The only downfall I have is my own. That being that I need to now read the first book because I am hooked! I look forward to reading a third installment to this series.

If you would like to know more about the exhilarating characters and amazing storyline then you will just have to read this story yourself. I recommend that you do and soon!
