You’ve discovered Sara’s secrets. Now Sara will discover “his” deepest, darkest secrets…but will those secrets bind them together–or tear them apart?
He has become her life, her heart, her very soul. But he is dark and damaged, and his secrets are many. Sara will risk everything for him. He, in turn, will dare to expose his deepest needs, his most erotic desires. And in the fury of passion he will reveal all that torments him, all that he can never escape. To love him, Sara must embrace the darkest part of him, and become his shelter in a storm that will be his ultimate salvation.
I cannot begin to explain my love of this series. Once again the story starts with an excerpt from Rebecca’s journal. In “Being Me” we learned what happened to Rebecca and the story now continues with Sara heading off to a new life with Chris in Paris.
But let’s not make this an easy transition; starting at the Paris Airport, Sara gets her pocket picked and her wallet and passport are gone before she makes it to the customs line.
Then the cab ride is no picnic with a message from the detective handling the investigation of Ava and asking why she left in such a hurry. I almost want to scream at the injustice of the beginning, but the way Chris handles things has me relaxing and waiting for the next thing to come up.
The beginning scenes are among my favorite and this is one of my favorites as they travel from the airport.
A sudden flashback of him showing up, after weeks of shutting me out of his life, and ordering me onto the back of his Harley, in a skirt of all things, is an unwelcome memory I shove away. I won’t let myself worry about him doing that to me again. Especially not today. I’m alive, which is a gift I value more than ever before.
I’m with Chris.
I’m in Paris, which I’m experiencing because of Chris, when everyone else in my life has always kept me in a box.
I lean over and kiss his cheek.
“What’s that for?” he asks, his strong arm wrapping around my waist.
I can think of a million ways to answer, and a million things I want to say to him. I simply say, “For being you.”
The tenderness in his face melts the last remnants of my bad memory. “If this is the reaction I get to a little sightseeing, I can’t wait to see how you react when you see the art galleries. You’re going to go nuts, baby.” His cell phone rings, and with the obvious reluctance I love, he lets go of me.
“It’s Blake,” he announces after glancing at the caller ID.
The name is like a cold splash of water on the warm, wonderful adventure we’re sharing. Since Blake has been investigating both Rebecca’s and Ella’s disappearances, I’m not sure if I should expect good or bad news.
“Easy, baby,” Chris murmurs, running his hand up and down my arm as if he feels my sudden chill. “Everything’s okay.”

More complications arise as we meet Amber, a good friend of Chris’, under the most unfavorable circumstances. Sara gets a lovely French tutor, Chantal, recommended by Katie, Chris’ godmother. Chantal helps with the language barrier as Sara begins looking for Ella. First at City Hall, then later at the US Embassy, Chantal is again needed when the French police show up. Can we say “Damn, Sara needs a break?
The story is fast paced and secrets are revealed. Sara and Chris work through a lot as they find how much they really do love each other.
My only complaint would be the cliffhanger, but the series is now complete so it’s not an issue.
