Blurb

I should have resisted him, but I couldn’t. My addiction to him was all-consuming, the high from his touch unlike any other.
Without him, I couldn’t focus, couldn’t think, couldn’t breathe.
With him, I hated myself for being too weak to fight the devil himself.
And Tyler Burnham was the devil.
He used me.
He lied to me.
But he loved me. And he still does.

Unable to stop thinking about the man who deceived her, Mackenzie Delano struggles to move on with her life and forget that Tyler Burnham ever walked into her life. But she still aches for him, despite his betrayal. Her mind is at war with her heart, a war that could be the difference between living and dying.

Tyler Burnham is lost without Mackenzie. As he contemplates the meaning of everything, he tries to find a way to prove that his feelings for her are true. That he would walk through fire to keep her at his side. That he would sacrifice it all…his career, his fortune, his life…to protect her.

The truth is, he may just have to…

Recommended for readers 18 & up due to strong language, explicit sexual situations, and graphic violence.


This is the second book in a two-book duet, which must be read in order. If you have not yet read Chasing The Dragon, please start there.


5 out of 5 (exceptional)


This is the second book and continues where book 1 left off... thankfully! Mackenzie and Tyler have gone their separate ways for now as Mackenzie tries to deal with the deception. Tyler is acting on his usual M.O. and has run away from the situation, whilst still telling himself that he's doing the right thing. 

This book was simply amazing and it makes me wonder if it was written at the same time as book 1, because there just simply aren't any gaps. Nothing is missing, it is completely seamless between books 1 and 2. I loved how totally human Tyler and Mackenzie are. They make mistakes, they make wrong choices but, at the end of the day, they move forward. 

With enough twists and turns to make you dizzy, this book will take you up high and bring you down low. I will say that my eyes kept leaking for at least the last quarter of the book. Just as I thought I was okay, something else would happen and it would start up again.

One thing I will add (which I'm bound to get slaughtered over) is that whilst I stated in my review for book 1 that I haven't read any of the Beautiful Mess series, and still haven't, I can say that my opinion of Alex from these books isn't such a good one! I know that he has made quite a few knees knock together but all I want to do is bop him one! Very authoritarian and know it all - that whole gaslight mind "freak", so not cool. Still, I guess that for a character to get me riled up means that he was well written.

In fact, this book is incredibly well written, with a tense and intriguing plotline that will have your pulse racing and your heart pumping. Highly Recommended!!! 

* I received this book from Give Me Books in return for a fair and honest review.*

Excerpt

“Wait, Mackenzie!” Tyler cried out after me. “Tell me what you want me to say and I’ll say it! Letting you walk away from me once was the biggest mistake of my life. I won't do it again.”

I spun around just as I was about to open the front door. “You let me walk away from you?” I hissed, my teeth clenched.

“That’s not what I meant.” He ran his hands through his dark brown hair and I could see the desperation wash over him. “What I meant to say is all the lies, all of it… I’m so sorry I put you through it. But do you think I regret any of it?” His eyes grew more intense and impassioned, his chest heaving as he poured his heart out to me. “Not for a second.”

I glared at him, waiting for him to explain.

“If it wasn’t for all the lies, for my assignment, I never would have met you, so I’m not going to say I regret a fucking second of any of it. I don’t care what it takes to win back your heart. You can push me away all you want. You can tell me you’ll never forgive me, that there will never be an us again, but I will always come back for you. A hundred times. A thousand times. I will fight for us until I take my last breath.”

He stepped toward me, grabbing my hand in his, caressing my knuckles in such a delicate way that made me want to melt into a puddle.

“Please, Mackenzie…” He leaned toward me, brushing his lips against my forehead, kissing me so delicately, so lightly. “Serafina,” he whispered, “tell me what it will take and I’ll do it.”

Despite everything he had just said, I simply couldn’t let him back in. Relationships were based on trust, and Tyler took my trust and used it against me. I couldn’t forget that, no matter how much my skin yearned for his touch.

“You want to know what it’s going to take?” I asked softly, freeing my hand from his grasp.

He nodded, nervous anticipation radiating through his body as he looked at me with eager eyes.

“It’ll take one more time,” I murmured, opening the door. Peering over my shoulder, I saw his deflated expression. “It will always take one more time.”
