I felt like Cole and Jae grew so much closer in this one. Their relationship is intense and deep and so touching it makes me want to cry sometimes. They obviously love each other so much but their circumstances stop them from taking that final step into full blown life partners. It's heartbreaking. Cole's still the snarky man I fell in love with and Jae is still the caring, but sometimes distant, person he was before. But they still grew and developed. They're more secure in their feelings and their love. I adored the secondary characters but my heart stopped several times when things got too intense and dangerous.
The plot is full of twists and turns. This well written story is face paced and addicting. What I love about this series is that I never really can figure out the mystery. I have my suspicions and while they might be right, I'm led around and made to second guess everything then figure out that I didn't figure out all of it. It's refreshing to have such a complex and intriguing story. I loved that we got to see Cole's family but my heart twisted with what Cole had to go through with them.
My only reservation about the book is that I got confused with the names but these are Korean names so that's understandable. But then there's a cliffhanger! A big one! Gaaaaaaaaaah! Talk about torture!!!
All in all, a fabulous read. I fall more in love with Cole and Jae with each book I read of them. This one kept me up until the wee hours of the morning and I loved every single second of it. I can't wait to read the next one!
