Hearing Ricca’s perspective of events, as well as parts of her life, answers many questions from the previous books in this series. This new life pathway for Ricca is full of potholes but also real moments of joy.
Ricca discovers she has a responsibility she relishes in accepting if she is allowed. By running back to her hometown many past concepts and ideas about her are still felt deeply. Ratchet is not happy to learn Ricca has done a runner with no forwarding address or reason for her actions. Luckily for Ricca, Ratchet never gives up easily!
The story has a bit of everything in it from romance and hot intimacy to suspense and action. The humour running throughout the story is upbeat and really enjoyable. The last ten percent of the book is even more exciting and enlightening!
One of my favourite lines from the story belongs to Ratchet when he thinks…
‘All I wanted was a chance to prove to her that even though my monsters still lingered, that they would play nice with hers.’
Ricca describing Ratchet…
‘Much like a priceless gemstone, he is multi-faceted.’
This is spot on and descriptions like these make it easier for the reader to understand each character more fully.
This fast-paced story is super easy to read but I do advise you read the other three books first.

okay. They’re dead and can’t hurt you anymore,” I mumble and repeat in some
stupid fucking mantra to keep the memories at bay. Every morning starts like
this. Sure, maybe I did need go back to my victim group counseling sessions,
but I knew theKumbaya mentality they used couldn’t help me. The demons in my head
were of my own creation, and they were never just going to go away by telling
others who thought they were like me about them. I couldn’t forgive the men for
the things that they did to my body and even with their deaths, my mind would
never be able to see the world the same way. They took the last shred of my innocence
out in that desert, and it was something that I was never going to be able to
get back, even if I had ruby red slippers, clicked my heels, and said it three
no matter how hard I hoped he would be, Ratchet was definitely not Prince
Charming. The knight in shining armor isn’t real, and
he was never going to ride a horse to my tower of terror.
