As I was reading this I was thinking that I wasn’t really liking or connecting to these characters very much. Despite the fact that Ashley keeps daydreaming and having flashbacks of the past. She remembers her early relationship with Noah/Aaron, before she found out he was a CIA assassin who betrayed his country. I think part of the issue is that half the memories are when he was acting strange and lying to her.
In the present, between the flashbacks, he has basically kidnapped her from witnesses protection and though he says he was set up. He is not answering all of her questions and still lying to her and acting very fishy. He tries to tempt her away from her questions with kisses and sexy times and it works a few times. Though it seems a bit sleazy instead of romantic. So it is hard to tell if he is a good guy that is really in love with her and trying to protect her
Later in the book, the suspense and intrigue gets much better and I found myself not really caring so much about the things that bothered me earlier in the book, though the story is a novella and pretty short (85-100 pages), it had me extremely interested at the end. Of course it ends on a heck of a cliffhanger. Way to leave me on the edge of my seat Lisa Renee Jones!
