I am sucked into this series and I am okay with that lol. Four is Jack’s story and he gets a hit with the blast from his past. We still hear from previous characters and that brings this story back home for me. I hurt knowing that that these characters are still recovering from previous horrific events. Jack we find out is battling demons of his own. What can they be? Rose, his partner, tried to get him to open up. He just does not want to burden anyone. I wanted to wrap my arms around Jack and let him let it all out. That is how emotionally connected you get with these characters.
Laura is our main female lead of this story. My heart broke when I read her story. I had tears streaming down my cheeks and wanted to tell Laura one day she will be okay. She is strong enough to take her life back.
When Jack and Laura are together, they lean on each other and make each other stronger. It was amazing to see their connection so strong. With a psychopath on the loose, and after Laura, no one in their circle seems to be safe. The ending was traumatic and I cried even more.
Jane Blythe knows how to write a great suspense/mystery book. I only maybe a handful of favorite authors in this genre and Jane is one of my top favorite! I am addicted to the Count to Ten series. Four is amazingly dramatic, and was written perfectly. The sexy love scenes show you the real chemistry of soulmates that have been lost.
More About the Book:
Detective Jack Xander and his partner are investigating the sudden spate of crimes at an apartment building, but every time they think they’re making progress another assault leads them in a completely different direction. As they hunt for the killer’s real target Jack is about to come face to face with someone from his past he thought he’d never set eyes on again.
Ten years ago Laura Opal endured a four day long ordeal that left her broken and traumatized. But the men who hurt her were caught, tried, found guilty and imprisoned, so what’s happening in her apartment building doesn’t have anything to do with her. She’s sure of it.
** Warning: Graphic violence and themes of sexual assault/abuse **
