I had read and enjoyed the first book in the Dark Justice series, Morgan, and eagerly anticipated the opportunity to read this sequel. However, somehow this one doesn’t seem to have the same vibe, the characters seem disconnected and somewhat two dimensional. I’m not sure if my problems arose from my reactions to how Johnny set up his wife to believe she’s been unfaithful to him in order to protect her, personally prefer honesty rather than manipulation even if it is in the name of love.
There’s plenty of action and it will keep you guessing. It may be that I’m just not in the right mood to appreciate this one but it didn’t draw me into the story. However, you may well love it, so don’t let me put you off giving it a go, especially if you enjoy romantic suspense!
I requested and received a copy of this novel via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Dr. Melia Rose and ex-Marine Johnny Hunt had it all. Until one night in Atlantic City changed everything. She’s left shocked, confused, and alone, unable to come to terms with what happened. Hell, she doesn’t even know what happened; she just knows her life has taken a one-eighty.
Now, Melia’s started over—again—in her secluded, boring life in the swamps of Florida. The people are great, she has a housekeeper who may or may not be Bette Davis reincarnated, and it’s quiet. But when her ex-husband shows up, dropping a bomb of epic proportions, her new life is a whole lot more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.
There’s nothing Johnny wants more than to undo the damage from the past. The secrets he’s been carrying have been eating away at him, but protecting Melia was more important than anything else. Even his own life. He managed to save her last time, but the danger is close—too close. In order to save her once more from his demons, Johnny will have to come clean…about everything.
