~ Synopsis ~
Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing.
Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets.
Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more.
Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, he’s determined to protect her—at all costs.
Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good?
Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls.
We’re back in Chastity Falls with Ana and Jackson. When we last saw them things were strained. But like two magnets they can’t help but find themselves drawn to one another.
This is a continuation of the first book Loyalty and Lies. And though Ana and Jackson still care about one another, Jackson’s life is adversely affecting Ana and he can’t put her into more danger. Until he finds out it is too late.
I enjoyed this book, not nearly as much as I did the first. I’m still anxious to see how it all turns out in the third book. I’m curious how things turn out with Marcus. The entire gang is back, so you get to see more of Elena, Tyson and Paul. (love these people!) We also get to see more Briony and Braiden (I don’t love these people!). We also get to see more into the Calder/Reibeckett issue.
Ms. Cotton continues building her world of Chastity Falls and the mobsteresque family that runs it. This book seemed more about Jackson than it did about Ana, which is fine because we got to figure more out about Ana in Loyalty and Lies. So, the question is, would I recommend this book. I would. It’s definitely full of twists and turns and mystery.
