Oliver was once in love with Merideth and Lucas but that was several years ago and in that time he has convinced himself he no longer cares for them and that if he never sees either of them again it will be too soon. So when his home is broken into imagine his surprise to find out it’s Lucas and that Lucas didn’t break in to rob him but to beg for his help.
Merideth made a mistake and ended up in a BDSM scene that went horribly wrong it has left her with physical and mental scars. She needs help to get her life back. When Lucas comes to her after hearing about the incident she tells him the only way he can help her is to get Oliver to agree to help put her life back together.
I loved this novel we start knowing that Merideth is hurting and living a half live but we soon realize that both Lucas and Oliver have also been living half lives since the trio originally split up. Along the way all three confess to feeling of guilt and secrets are revealed that leave everyone feeling more than a little vulnerable. In helping Merideth not only come to terms with what has happened to her but to also face her attackers and get justice for all their other victims, Oliver and Lucas also face their own feelings of guilt and failure. When the smoke finally clears can they all forgive each other and reunite now that they are all older and wiser.
Ms Willows has a knack of drawing you in from the first chapter and not releasing you till the last written word. This novel is no exception you feel for the characters. I cried for Merideth but I also got angry with her. I also loved how we saw the always in control Oliver become unsure of himself and how he decided to lay his heart on the line and risk getting it broken again. This is part of the Maneater series and while it can be read as a standalone I’d encourage you to read the previous books if you haven’t already as they will give you a deeper insight into the secondary characters. Thanks Ms Willows for giving us another awesome read.
