I can and did enjoy every minute of this layered story. 4 stars This is book two in the Necklace trilogy; it delved deeper into the mystery of Allison - where is she and who sent her the necklace. Allie and Dash also develop a deeper bond in this book that hooked me in and made me root for them. Dash’s protectiveness, possessiveness and tenderness with Allie were attractive to me. I was pleased by Allie’s progress in this book. I enjoyed every minute of this layered story of emotions, heat and suspense. I look forward to the third book after that emotional cliffhanger. I requested and received an advanced copy of this ebook for my honest review that I am voluntarily leaving.
This picks up right where the first book ends. Dash and Allie’s relationship is in its formative stage moving into something more. This has a lot of emotional development although it’s Allie’s growth we’re aware of as we have her point of view alone. I did miss having Dash’s, seeing his alphaness and the intensity of his feelings. The author does give us enough signs of those feelings however, so that eased my need for his thoughts to a certain extent. The mystery here flows around the relationship. There are certainly moments that threaten danger but for me this was all about Dash and Allie. I am curious about the missing Allison, the necklace and the man involved, it just wasn’t my priority. The chemistry between Dash and Allie is extreme. This couple are hot together even as they are struggling with issues within and outside their relationship. A heat advisory should be given when deciding to read as this was absolutely scorching. I was prepared for a cliffhanger, but didn’t expect it to feel so angsty. Definitely glad the next book is releasing soon.
This one picks up right where the first one left off so make sure you read that one first! Allie is still looking for Allison and everywhere she turns there seems to be more secrets, danger, intrigue, and did I say secrets? Yeah, so many! Dash and Allie have found a groove and are moving really fast towards something lasting but will they be able to overcome those secrets? Of course, there is a cliffhanger but the author promises a quick resolution with book three right around the corner (YAY me!) Did I leave you dizzy with this one? Read book one, move on to this one, and by then book three should be out and we will all be happy! I am really enjoying this series and highly recommend it!
