Court and Lauren must now trust each other as well as his brothers to get Court and Lauren out alive. When Stephan is released from prison it takes Court and his brother to keep Lauren safe.

I liked this book and felt it had a good plot. But if the brothers were undercover FBI agents why did they tell so many people as that could easily blow their cover and get them killed. I loved the action and the suspense in this book. This kept my attention from beginning to end. I felt bad when Court is so hurt  and feeling abandoned from Lauren when she really was only trying to protect him. I loved the relationship between Court and his brothers. I loved Lauren and Court together and wanted Court to work through his issues for Lauren. I loved the characters and the twists and turns in this story and I recommend.
