Breathtaking. Brilliant. Stunning. Those three words among other equally impressive adjectives come to mind, when I try to describe this story. While I admit that I’ve cried, yelled, and even thrown my kindle across the room when reading this saga, I wouldn’t change one thing, or one ounce of angst. Nothing. My love and devotion f
or this story grows as I read more. I LOVE IT!!!!!!
Finally Caroline has been able to escape the hell that was The Fed. She’s made friends with her rescuers and together they make plans to resume their mission to make it to the safer part of the country.
These characters are living through very trying times. The United States is no longer a free country where people can express themselves and be who they are and while the everyday lives of the American people may seem the same they are in fact completely different.
Caroline needs to look and feel like someone else. Being the first lady of Pennsylvania, who she used to be, is not only dangerous but also very painful. She struggles with her memories, those beautiful times she experienced with her loved ones, now hurt her, haunt her dreams.
Just like in the previous book we go from past to present. In the past we finds answers that slowly complete the puzzle of what’s been building for years and is now a cruel reality in the life of Caroline. We learn about the events that lead to the demise of the Governor of Pennsylvania and his first lady. How they prepared in case of bad events. Bittersweet moments in the story, but probably my favorites…
A whole set of wonderful secondary characters are introduced in this third part of the story. I enjoyed these new friends of Caroline, while I’m still mourning the loss of others.
Caroline is the only girl in the safe house and even though the men are the ones helping her and nursing her back to life, she has claimed the spot of leader as she helps and guides them into safe territory.
She’s not the same Chicago girl she used to be. She is now using her pain to shape into a new woman who is simply ready for battle, one she wants to desperately win. The sweet Caroline who used to have it all, now has nothing but loneliness and her memories of wonderful and sexy times with her husband, the one she cries for every night and is afraid to even say his name, because it just hurts too much.
The steamy scenes get even hotter and yet more romantic. It’s pretty clear by now that this couple communicate best in the bedroom. Their love and devotion translates so intensely in those private moments between husband and wife. They become fearless inside the embrace of one another. The beauty of those moments was too much for my heart and other parts of my body to take…
Caroline and her friends are looking to get to the other side, join the rebels and fight for what’s right. Will they make it? And if they do, what will they find? More enemies or the allies they so desperately need?
Reading these books is like eating a delicious and very expensive box of chocolates, each piece is unique, some sweet, some bitter but in the end you simply can’t have enough…
I’m a very passionate reader, and there are so many stories I love and adore but never before have I felt so inside and so connected to a story. I’m so consumed by this saga that I’m desperate forEVERYONE to read it. If I could purchase the books for every person I know, I would. That’s how much I believe in this wonderful story.
