Warning: Do not read this review unless you want spoilers for book one.

Two families.
A childhood crush.
An arrangement.
A legacy.
A power struggle.
This story ties everything together in one tremulous conclusion.

Book two picks up right where book one left off, with Mian coming to grips with her actions, and (SPOILER) Angel’s response to it. If you think he really died in book one, I can’t help you. That scenario just wouldn’t work in romance. But, as you can imagine, things are far from rosy after the actions and reactions to the news of who killed Angel’s father.

For the most part, I liked how Mian moved forward. She has not forgiven Angel for the lie he held against her, and on the surface, she isn’t sorry for trying to kill him. However, while her mind is at peace with her actions, her body can’t seem to stay on the same track. In that respect, Angel continues to hold power over her and uses it to his advantage.

“You hear that, Sprite?”
My cries mixed with his grunts and the headboard banging against the wall as he showed me no mercy.
“That’s the sound of me owning you.”

This story was a bit more complex than the first, as we discover the Knight family legacy and all of the players looking to seek the control Angel currently holds. As you would expect, there is double crossing and twists in attempts to steal the power away. On top of that, you have the evil Senator and his douchecanoe of a son, eager to tie up loose end, aka kill Mian.

Angel is still an anti-hero, his morals have not changed, but he has softened his approach to Mian. I know this may seem strange, but I preferred him more in the first book. He shows his cards and vulnerability towards her in this book, without giving her a commitment. I wanted to yell, “YOU CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!!” Either commit or let her go.

With all of the twists, the resolution went smoother than I expected. It could have been a lot messier. But I did like how Mian handled things and gave herself time to get on her feet alone, without feeling trapped. That made the ending more real.

I can’t stay away, and your heart won’t stop seeking me. We’re inevitable, Mian.”

Although this is the end of Mian and Angel’s story, it looks like we have more to come regarding other characters. And that’s all I’m saying. ; )

B.B., ALSO KNOWN as Bebe, found her passion for romance when she read her first romance novel by Susan Johnson at a young age. She would sneak into her mother’s closet for books and even sometimes the attic. It soon became a hobby, and later an addiction, influencing her life in a positive way.

Bebe is fresh out of undergrad college and has always wondered about the existence of her talent. When she finally decided to pick up a metaphorical pen and start writing, she found a new way to embrace her passion.

She favors a romance that isn’t always easy on the eyes or heart, and loves to see characters grow–characters who are seemingly doomed from the start but find love anyway.

Fear Me, her debut novel, is the first of many.
