⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Cole has been searching for Pamela since she disappeared from the face of the planet, or so it seems. He’s in love with her, and she’s in love with him, but in denial. Cole let Pamela run emotionally but now that he’s found her in South America, he’ll rescue her, protect her, and show her that they’re meant to be together. Cole’s job with the ex-Russian Bratva, has given him the resources and safety to bring her home and protect her, but he has a huge battle looming to get her to give in to him about their relationship.
Pamela has a lot of secrets and demons to face before she can give Cole what he wants, but she has to recover from her kidnapping first and learn to trust again and learn to open her eyes and really see the people that she has been brought to for protection. Her cynicism and her narrow sight could be the end of Cole’s safety net if she can’t get over herself and find a way to open up to Cole about her past.
I really liked Cole but felt that he deserved so much more than what he was getting from Pamela and her narrow sight about the men that Cole works for. These men have turned their lives around and have women and families that love them unconditionally. I realize that her past has shaded her sight, but she’s so narrow minded that it irritates me. I love the other characters in this series and enjoyed the book, but I wanted to smack Pamela more than a few times. I give the book a 4-star review and look forward to more these characters. I am afraid to read The Game though as I hate to see the end of the series.
