I liked this one much better than the first book! I thought it had more action, was believable, and I found it easier to connect to the characters. Crystal was my favorite character of this book, because she showed such inner strength in the face of the direction her life was forced to take. Shane was a very interesting hero, and not without his flaws. That made him more realistic in my eyes. I liked how the author brought in a bit of Motorcycle Club culture to the story, as I've been interested in MC romances of late. The one problem I have with this is that the series can't be read as standalone stories, and it has been a good bit since I have read the first book. I'm kinda looking forward to the next story!
