3 and a half stars for this one.When I read the blurb I was convinced the story is about Steel and Nikki. How Steel is such an alpha male obsessed with his job when Nikki comes along but tries to keep her away as she can be a distraction. I was expecting that pull, the banter, his inner struggle but we got none of that. However I found myself more interested in Grace’s story and her past and what’s going on with Flynn. Those parts had the premises of a good psychological thriller that I didn’t even care at that point how the relationship between Steel and Nikki develops. I didn’t see them as main characters.
I understand this book is part of a series however a bit of a introduction of what’s going on would have been amazing and made this book possible to be read like a standalone. Without that, I felt I am missing important bits and made Steel and Nikki’s story hard to follow.
