The seductive story that started in The Masseuse continues.
Anna Rossi knows that opening your heart only gets you hurt. But Alec Flynn is just too good to resist.
It's been three long months since Anna's seen Alec, since he saved her life and lit up her soul with unquenchable desire. Being without him has left her on edge, but his bravery has motivated her to change her life and go after what she's always wanted - a job where she can help people. She can't wait to show Alec the woman she's become in his absence, or to prove how much she's missed him.
Three months away has done nothing to slake Alec's need for Anna. Unfortunately, it hasn't made his life any less dangerous. The last thing he wants to do is hurt Anna, but if giving her up is the only way to save her, he's not sure he can do that either. He's determined to have her for as long as he can. Except his past is creeping up on him faster than he knows, and this time he may not be able to keep her from becoming collateral damage.
I have a love/hate relationship with Trilogies..... especially the really exciting and well-written ones like this, because they make me so frustrated at the cliffhanger endings that I find myself wishing my life away until the next book is released when I can finally put all the puzzle pieces together. But arghh and sadly the next one doesn't come out til May!!
Anyhooo, this is book 2 in Sierra Kincade's fantastic and thrilling Body Work Trilogy where Alec and Anna are still battling everything to stay together but tensions are high, people aren't who you think they are and Alec, being the only witness left that can take down his Boss, has had to go into protective custody which leaves Anna feeling very alone and vulnerable. Suspense, shocks, who to trust?, twists, hot sex, high passions, soul-soul chemistry, danger, intrigue, murder attempts, interesting secondary characters and a beautiful, sad and doomed love affair. Anna has held on, clung to hope, waited three months for Alec to come out of prison, now it's 10 weeks while he's under wraps (even if he does find touching ways to be near her). But the danger she's putting everyone else in that she loves by being associated with Alec might just be the final straw.
Told from Anna's POV, the narrator was great and could do a sexy drool-worthy Hero's voice with no problems as well as all the other characters and a full range of emotions with ease.
Worth a credit? This was just as captivating, just as intense and just as packed full of intrigue as The Masseuse was and, as I've said, I can't wait to finally hear how these two lovers can possibly get their much deserved HEA ending but I'm ever hopeful. Very creditworthy and I'm off now to count the days!!

While the story is compelling, I was a bit frustrated at times because I didn't remember important details from the previous book that would have helped explain people's behavior. Not only must the first book be read first, but this second one should be read immediately thereafter.
I must admit I was skeptical that after book one the author would be able to pull off another book with this story. It felt like the story was over. How wrong I was! So glad I stuck with it because she did an amazing job!
Great narrator. Wonderful story. Not too much sexy time, but not lacking either! Just a great story all around. Can't wait for the next one!
