‘Girl I don’t run, but I’d powerwalk for a guy with tattoos and a beard.’ – Shelli Adler
Let me start out by saying, I have been waiting for more of the second generation from the original Assassins books for a hot second, and Toni did not disappoint when it came to Amelia and Chandler! I also have to say that I appreciate that when Toni writes, she isn’t afraid to talk about the dark stuff. I won’t go into more detail as I don’t want to spoil anything, but the way she can write about some of the dark sides to relationships in such a way is beautiful and eloquent to say the least. Also, I say it time and time again, I absolutely love that she entwines every character in the books, and brings in old and new characters that you love!
Amelia Justice is hiding out from her family, after a failed marriage that was tough to get out of she’s taking things one day at a time. Chandler Moon, also moving forward from a failed marriage, is stunned to see Amelia in South Carolina where he plays hockey for the Ice Cats. They aren’t strangers, having hooked up once in college, and with Chandler being one of Amelia’s brother’s best friends, but it’s been quite a few years since they two have seen each other and many things have changed. Amelia isn’t the fun loving girl she used to be, but Chandler is determined to bring that out in her again. Can Amelia let go of the past and move forward with her life? And is Chandler willing to risk his friendship for a girl? Once you start this book, be prepared to not be able to put it down!
