This was a fast-paced read with plenty of danger, suspense, chemistry and the issue of domestic violence.
Skylar has suffered at the hands of her ex and when she hears what sounds like a woman being abused, she intervenes and this sets off a series of events that will lead to Skylar and the local police officer Senior Constable Nash ending up on a crashed helicopter running for their lives through the remote national park in north Qld.
I really enjoyed this novel, the attraction between Skylar and Nash is one they’ve been fighting for a while, well Skylar has been fighting it, Nash has been hoping. When they are thrown together they can’t ignore it any longer, but it will take a lot for Skylar to get past her past.
There were times Skylar annoyed me so much, when a police officer says “stay hidden ‘ or asks you to do something, you don’t do the exact opposite. Other times I really loved Skylar and hoped she would be able to get through everything and make a go of a life that wasn’t all about work.
Nash was just lovely, and I hoped he would be able to get past Skylar’s defences. He was much more understanding about some of her behaviours than I would have been.
The bad guys are not nice at all, when you are a gun for hire, I guess you wouldn’t be. The domestic violence case was a tough one, and shows how hard it can be for people to leave their abuser or press charges against them. We all need to stand up to abusers like Skylar did and not close our eyes to those around us.
A great second book in this series, I can’t wait for the next one.
