Within the last few weeks I’ve been stalked, almost raped, witnessed a murder, and found out I am working with the FBI. All because of that slutty tramp, Marvy. Mind you, I did have my first sexual experience with a smoking hot guy, so there’s that…but I still hate her.
That wimpy cry-baby blames me for everything which is total joke! If it were up to me, I wouldn’t have gone back to the club without a gun. Now I’m stuck with that jerk-off, Bryson, hiding from people that want to see me dead.
I’m supposed to be getting the dirt on Bryson, but truth of the matter is, I think I’m falling for the scumbag. He did kill someone to protect me, but he’s the reason he had to. Sigh. I don’t know what to think a
bout him. He doesn’t know about my secrets. Or maybe he does.
The only man I can trust is Alex. But he doesn’t know where I am thanks to Bryson. I love them both in ways that are completely different—kind of like my alters.
Wat a friggin’ mess! Dez two are idjits!
This was a DOOZY!! So much happens to Tris that I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning. Suspenseful from beginning to end. And that cliffy??? I’ll be pulling my hair out as I wait for the final part of the story.
If you haven’t read the first book, click Part One and go no further.
So Part 2 picks up exactly where Part 1 left off. Tris is with Bryson and is working with him to solve their problems with the DEA and the Croatian mafia. She’s determined to see it through in the hopes that she can get back to her family, get her life back on track and, hopefully return to Alex.
But the more time she spends with Bryson, the more she sees in him and sees that he’s not what she expected. With her alters making sporadic appearances, she’s learning more about herself, her past and the reason they exist.
This only leads to Tris becoming a stronger individual. She’s able to learn from those personas; which ultimately get her through some seriously sticky situations.
Part 2 was jam packed with a level of steam, to keep you panting, and an air of suspense to keep you on your toes with an ending that will leave you on the edge of your seat… wanting more, in a hurry.
I’m excited for what’s may be in store for Tris in Part 3 and I can’t wait to know what happens next.
