This is the second book in this series and book 1 should be read first.
Delani "Lani" Delvecchio was kidnapped by Armand Castillo and as they get closer to a possible judgment Lani is struggling. Her body is damaged and she no longer feels like she is the same woman as she was before.
Brody Russell, Lani's boyfriend, is a police officer but has taken a leave to help Lani through this difficult time. Yet he is also caught between letting Lani heal on her own and watching her suffer in her own silence.
When Armand is granted bail and then is murdered has Brody committed the crime or has someone set him up to take the fall?
This was another emotional read in this series. Although this book doesn't contain the same physical/emotional abuse of the first book this one contained the aftermath of what these events can do to a person and also what it does to their loved ones. I think this one also showed the problems that can arise with our court system as well.
Lani was beginning to get so much stronger due to her therapy sessions and I loved how she gradually starting getting back to a different version of her older self. She will never be the person she was and I think the author did a great job of evolving Lani where we could see a growth and potential for her. I loved that she was also able to recognize when she needed extra help and got it.
I still love Brody and everything about the guy. I loved how he really didn't care that his relationship with Lani had changed due to what she went through but he was not going anywhere and didn't care if they ever had sex together again just as long as they were together.
I knew that there was no way Brody could do what he was accused of as I knew he would never do anything to jeopardize not being with Lani but I had no idea what was going to happen!!
I would love to see a book with Taryn and Dom!!
Such a great series but full of emotion!
