Mia Ryan has learned the hard way that her choices can have horrible
consequences. Taking an offer that was supposed to get her life back on track was
nothing but a ploy. To keep the ones she holds dear safe, she’s forced to finish
what she started, without any hope of finding out why she was targeted in the first
place. Though Mia has Ethan by her side, she can’t seem to believe in him,
especially since most of his life remains a mystery.
Ethan Fitzgerald has done everything in his power to prove to Mia that she can
trust him, but it never seems to be enough to convince her to drop the last wall
around her heart. With deep and dark secrets lurking around every corner, he has
his own plan to keep Mia from any danger, but it may just shatter their love
There are so many questions – with even more shocking answers – and when Mia
uncovers the truth, nothing will ever be the same…
Rating: 5 Groupie Stars
I must just start off by complimenting MM Koenig ….the coverart of both books is phenomenal and hits the nail on the head! Ethan is captured beautifully and I find myself having to reign in my thoughts as they wander off south to special treats his body has for me. I’m trying not to give away to much so you simply have to read the books and discover the” beauty of Ethan” ♡
Complicated flows straight from Conflicted and Mia has Ethan behind her , there are still those nagging little questions that drive me around the bend !
I feel the pain and frustration on both sides though . Ethan wants Mia’s whole heart and it’s as if she’s still holding back a bit and he’s desperate to break through the walls of Alcatraz. In Mia’s defense though Ethan does keep things from her and although his heart and motives are noble it doesn’t bode well for the trust issues Mia has.
Their chemistry and passion is still ,if not more intense ! I kept waiting for my kindle to melt LOL !! We do however see a darker side to Ethan that we didn’t see in Conflicted ,it’s as if his fuse is shorter and we all know how quick Mia is to take the bait !
The ending left me hanging on the edge of a cliff with a crater in my heart ! Well played MM Koenig !
Holding my breath in great anticipation for “Concealed”
MM Koenig is a master from cover to last page , both her covers and titles are brilliantly protrayed and she deserves each one of the 5 stars.
