Cassidy Christensen wants to run.
Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, Cassidy's only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but Cassidy won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place.
This must-read sequel to Dead Running will have you laughing, biting your nails, and hoping for more.
This story, and the action, picks up where Dead Running ended. Cassie’s father is still fighting the slave traffickers. His self appointed body guard, Sham, stumbles into Cassie’s home with the intent to protect her. But behind him come a group of the enemy, including one seeking vengeance against Cassie. She is captured and delivered to the leader of the traffickers and his main henchman - the men who killed her mother.
The enemy have met to coordinate the latest “shipment.” They are awaiting the arrival of Cassie’s dad who was to be lured there by none other than Dr. Tattoo, the man Cassie is drawn to but has yet to learn to trust.
Cassie is locked in a room, threatened by charming and ugly would-be rapists. As things look bleakest an escape is made and Cassie has a chance to run to freedom. But turning she realizes that someone else she loves will die. Will Cassie be able to forgive the man who planned the explosions to stop the enemy forces? How can she love a man who can kill so many?
This is a great sequel to wrap up Dead Running. (I won’t say complete the story as there is the possibility of more danger in the future.) I can appreciate Cassie’s sensitivity to killing but she is missing the reality that they are fighting a war and the man she loves is a warrior in that war, whether he likes it or not. I enjoyed the steady action-filled pace, the strong characters and the clean romance.
