Dylan and Lydia's story continues! "Emotional, intense and beyond sexy. Dylan Hale will light your panties on fire, not that you'll be allowed to wear them anyway." - New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting
"He's not who you think he is . . . "
Meeting Dylan Hale has turned my life upside down. I'm dating an actual duke who's devastatingly handsome and deliciously naughty. On the surface, I'm living the high life. But this surreal world of royalty and paparazzi is getting out of control.
Someone knows way too much about Dylan and me-about the moments when we're alone, about how his hands leave a trail of fire over my skin . . . about the complete control he has over me between the sheets. And worse, it's starting to become clear that Dylan's keeping secrets from me, too . . .
I enjoyed the 1st in the series, so I had high hopes for this one...which were not totally met.
Don't get me wrong, the 2nd installment of Dylan and Lydia's story wasn't bad...it was just missing the compelling tension of the 1st story in the trilogy. They are together, they are happy. Yes, the threat that was alluded to in the first book is there, but it is really on the back-burner. This book felt like a glance into a couple who was involved happily.
And, I think this missed a lot of the potential angst and drama that it could have included. Yes, I am saying I wanted the happy couple to have things to deal with. Not that I am against them being happy, but the first was so emotional, I wanted the same from this one.
I think the 3rd has a lot of potential, and the set up for it has a lot going on that I am looking forward to. This one to me felt like a really long set up to bridge the action from the 1st to the 3rd. Not bad, necessarily as Dylan is still a lot of fun...and he is hot, and still a dirty talked who is a lot of fun in bed.
I guess, to me, the book was a bit of a let down from the 1st and a good set up for the 3rd. I do recommend it, as I think the time together that was mostly smooth is going to be important for the next one...but this is really a book that is for the people who read the 1st and wants another glimpse of them before the changes happen in the 3rd that were set up in the second.
I hesitantly recommend this book...and I look forward to the 3rd one.
