I loved this story right up to the point where the Hayden takes Trace into the bathroom to shower and starts playing with her girly bits. She doesn’t even react like a normal person. If you just found out some strange dude (one that was supposed to be the target of your next hit) had kidnapped you and kept you blind for however long, I don’t think you would be happily purring like a kitten with milk when he strips down and starts playing house. After that, the book was just strange. I am not sure what the heck was supposed to be going on.This story was like finding out there was only white chocolate available for dinner. You know white chocolate is not really chocolate. This story was like that. I anticipated chocolate, maybe something rich and delicious, but all there was available was some pretender white stuff.
