My rating: 3 of 5 stars
We have a forward and pull back tension here in this book. It moves forward at a pace, then it seems to lag, then tension builds, I just wasn't sure if I liked the rocking motion or not. I can certainly say in the bits that seemed to be going nowhere I was almost bored.......but then turned another page and it picked up again.
I sat and thought about this after reading it and decided I enjoyed the book. I haven't read book 1 but it didn't seem to make any difference I was able to read this as a stand alone, so on the whole, I enjoyed this suspense/romance. Just not enough to give it a 4 star rating because I got lost at times with the lagging.

She’s almost ready for a second chance.
What started out as a casual hookup with a rugged geologist has turned into something a whole lot more. Simone’s on the verge of handing over her heart, but fear over what Mitch will say and do when he learns who she used to be holds her back.
The past could destroy their future...
Just when Simone is about to take a chance on forever with Mitch, the mistakes of her past catch up with her. Suddenly it’s not just her safety on the line anymore, it’s his too. Forced into hiding, Mitch demands answers, and Simone realizes the only way to protect everything she holds dear is to delve into a past she’s spent fourteen years trying to forget. As they search for the truth, they discover secrets, lies and a rekindled passion that burns hotter than before. But they also uncover a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of society. One that could cost them more than just their future…it could cost them their lives.
