This is the second book in the St, Fleur series and I have been waiting to read this book since I finished the first, Widows Aura. Whilst it can be read as a stand alone I strongly suggest you read them in order to get the full effect and understanding of the characters. Widows Aura left off with Sofia & Noah getting engaged and their story continues in this book.
Lindsey is the sexy librarian who is dating Derek, a sweet man but she can’t shake the unknown feelings and familiarity of Marc the sexy friend of her neighbour, Noah. There is some great chemistry between the two but they have a love hate relationship and they seem to antagonise the hell out of each other without even trying. Lindsey finds herself smack dab in the middle of a love triangle without even trying. Add a stalker to the mix and you have one scared, confused and a once strong woman now fighting to keep her independence and possibly her life.
Marc’s desire for Lindsey is unexplainable yet familiar and once they make the connection he knows why. He has never forgotten the girl from his past his first love. Once he knows the truth he decides he has to have her and will stop at nothing to have her. Marc is ever the perfect man and loves unconditionally all those he cares about. He will also go out of his way to ensure all he loves is kept out of harm’s way. Whilst trying to solve the mystery surrounding the stalker Noah’s past comes crashing back in a way he never saw coming which could leave his relationship with Lindsey in trouble.
Once again AJ has written a story that that pulls you into the lives of each and every character and making you feel like you are with them every step of the way. The story is weaved nicely together with lots of suspense, suspects around the corner, tears, fears, love, laughter and great friendship with lots of hot and steamy romance. I look forward to reading more from AJ in the future and sharing the stories of those to come.
