The first time I met Vaughn Sanders, I knew I wanted her. Confident, intelligent, and downright sexy. I thought I knew how to play her game. I was ready and willing for the challenge. Little did I know she was full of secrets and surprises.
But so am I.
Charming a woman into my bed has never been my problem. It’s the relationship part that is. They want it. I don’t. But can you blame me? Broken marriages are how I make a living. Hell, no self-respecting man would let a woman own his thoughts, invade his dreams, and steal his heart. So how in the world has Vaughn done that to me?
I’ve fallen in love with her. There. I said it. But that acknowledgment comes with a heavy price.
Everything and everyone seem to be working against us, leaving us both to question whether what we have is worth the cost.
I’ll be damned if I go down without a fight.
Okay, so if you read my review to book one, Resist, you’ll know it ended with a major cliffhanger, that we definitely get to start right back in the middle of. And of course, what happened was really what I figured happened, so in the end, my love for Ryker was saved. But things get even more intense in this sequel as we get more of Vaughn’s background story, story that she may not even realize what happened exactly, as her young mind had blocked it out for her. There’s only so much I can say in this review so as not to give away anything if you haven’t read the first one. But I have to say that the author took this in a direction I totally did not see coming, and the way she did it made it so I didn’t have to think anyone was being stubborn unreasonably. In fact, I think the way Vaughn ended up handling things was pretty much the right way. And it wasn’t even just the big bad guy that we had to deal with at the end, there was that other side story that I had kind of wondered about along the way. But once again, Bromberg has written a story that is wonderfully deep and intense, sexy and romantic, with great characters and some unique situations. Another book for me to highly recommend!

“Ryker . . . please . . . just let me go.” But this time when she speaks there is something in her voice that catches my ear. The same thing that has me looking a little bit closer, regardless of how much my chest constricts in doing so, and I notice the tears welling in her eyes and the tremble of her bottom lip.
A chink in her damn armor. She doesn’t want to tell me we’re over any more than I want to believe her.
“What the fuck is going on here? You’re hiding something from me.”
“No. I’m not. This just can’t be.” She starts to skirt around me, and it takes everything I have not to reach out and keep her there.
“Don’t walk away from me when I’m talking to you!”
“And don’t you think for a second you can tell me what to do,” she counters, hair flying over her shoulder, jaw clenched.
“I’m not in the mood for your games.”
“My games?” she screeches and throws me off guard when I shouldn’t be. “My games? You’re the one who did this to me. All of it. And you tell me I’m playing games?”
“What the—?” I stop and try to figure out what she’s talking about. My hands are on her shoulders, and I’m all but shaking her to force her to look me in the eyes. “Did what to you, Vaughn? What the hell have I done to you besides fuck myself over by falling in love with you?” Words that should be said with kindness come out in a frustrated rage. Truths I don’t want to voice, and now I can’t take them back.
And she just stands there with her head shaking to reject my words, eyes wide with a hint of fear, and fuck if I don’t hate myself right now for everything I feel: rage, desperation, love, desire.
How can you swear you’re not cut out for a relationship and love in one breath, then with the next fight so goddamn hard to keep it?
What is this woman doing to me?
I scrub my hands over my face and take a deep breath to calm the fuck down. To force myself to cool my temper so I can keep her here instead of pushing her farther away.
“What is it, baby?” I all but plead with a voice as soft as I can make it. “Tell me why you’re walking away when you don’t want to.” She averts her eyes, confirming there’s something more. “I can’t help you unless you tell me what happened. I can’t understand why the other night meant nothing to you until you do.”
Come on. Talk to me.
“Carter paid me a visit after I left your place.” Her voice is soft, but her defiance is mounting.
That’s definitely not what I expected to come out of her mouth.
“What do you mean, Carter paid you a visit?”
“Just what I said.”
“Why? For what? That fucking asshole better not have touched you.”
“Does it matter if he did?” Her voice rises. “You invited him into my personal life. You gave him everything he needs to destroy me.”
