All eyes are on us . . . and there’s nowhere to run.

Everyone has their own ideas about Dallas Sykes: He’s a reckless billionaire, a devilish playboy, a man who gets whatever he wants the minute he wants it. But I know the real Dallas behind the money, bravado, and power—and he’s completely, blissfully mine.

We carefully guarded our secrets, and in each other’s arms we sought refuge from our dark past. Our pain became our pleasure, our control within the chaos. But we could only hide from the truth for so long.

Now we’ve let loose our inhibitions and are ready to face the future. And no matter what people think or say, coming clean is its own sweet reward.

So we are back with the final installment from Jane and Dallas. Things have really changed with these two since the first two books, and if you are thinking you can walk into this book without reading the other two first, you are sadly mistaken. You do get some more fun cameos from other characters from J. Kenner’s books, so be on the lookout for that. Don’t read this review if you haven’t read the second book yet, spoilers from that book are in this review.

So once we pick up in this book Jane has gone missing and to say Dallas is going out of his mind with worry would be an understatement. Dallas and Jane are finally out in the open, their parents have cut them off financially, and the media is all over their story, but these two don’t find happiness right away. Thankfully Jane doesn’t stay missing for very long, but it puts all the more pressure on Dallas and Jane to figure out who was behind all these events in the first place.

There are some heartbreaking scenes with these two as the book continues. Certain people become implicated in the plot, people that both Dallas and Jane are close to, and seeing how they react to those things, how they handle it is sometimes very sad to read. Also the strained relationship between Jane and Dallas and their parents is also hard to read, especially with their dad. I mean I wish he would have been even the slightest bit supportive of their love, but clearly he isn’t, and is bound and determined to make the “embarrassment” stop.

I had a feeling during book two that I knew who was behind everything, and I am happy to say that I was right! But totally not writing it here. Again I liked the mystery/thriller plot of this book was more than the romance aspect, but I actually did enjoy this book a lot more than the first two. I felt like everything came to a head during this book, I loved the added suspense, and trying to figure out how everything was going to end.

There was still a lot of between the sheets scenes in this book, but I didn’t feel like it was nearly as overwhelming in this book. I liked that both Jane and Dallas had some things left to work through as a couple, not just dealing with the kidnapping. But ultimately these two really are a team, they really do love each other, and that makes it enjoyable to read. Overall, I did enjoy this book, and I liked the conclusion as well. If you read the first two books you have to read this one without a doubt.
