I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this book for some time now, and dying to know what Ms.O'Keefe had in store for these wonderfully crafted characters! This book picks up right where the first one left off, and instantaneously has you gasping for your next breath! One sentence in, and your immediately pulled right back into the thick of things, and hit with the same level of of gut wrenching intensity that you had in the first book! 

This book is more so centered around Dylan's life, and it gives you a more in depth look into his family life and the mystery that surrounds his past. However, it does answer all the questions about Annie's life that were left out of the first installment. I truly enjoyed reading this duet, the story line is very unique and the way Ms. O'Keefe tells the story from both of the main characters points of view seems to really draw you into the characters lives, and cements them into your heart.

I highly recommend you add this duet to…
