***ARC RECEIVED FOR HONEST REVIEW***
This is a book filled with true love and lots of DRAMA
Taking off straight where ''Running from Forever'' finishes we get Merricks story.
The hot tattooed bartender who became best friends with our heroine from the previous book.
Merrick is a fab guy, not looking for any commitment, he's looking for a fun time. He's not a male tart who needs taming, he's just a regular guy.
While out bike racing he comes across Amelia, the daughter of the race promoter. He considers her a spoilt little princess who Daddy is appeasing by letting her play on the dirt track with the big boys. What Merrick didnt expect was her to kiss ass while out there. Shes beautiful and races bikes- Merrick needs to know more!
After a lovely weekend spent together Amelia disappears on him......she wont return his texts, she wont answer his calls, he doesn't know where she lives- its killing him, she was his perfect woman and she has just vanished off the face of the earth and he can not stop thinking about her. He's literally counting the days since he last saw her.
After being set up on a blind date by his BFF Kayla fate has these two run into each other again and Merrick finds out why she just vanished. And its not pretty!!
And thats when the story really picks up.
This isnt your average love story- this book throws in twists and turns at every page, covering topics of these two realising they love each other, murder and the mob.
I really enjoyed Merricks story- he was a lovely decent, hard working man who loved Amelia so much. This story is told in his point of view and the author does a male POV very well. He doesnt have much in the riches category but what he has he is very proud of but he is also willing to give it all up for love. He has his little bar that he has to walk away from in order to keep Amelia safe.
Amelia was a good heroine, she was quiet and shy at times, but then when something needed to be said or done she got straight to it.
We also get another look into Miles and Kayla's relationship as they are both very strong characters in this book. I was glad to see Merrick and Miles sorting things out and on the road to becoming great friends too.
Running from Forever and Permanent Lines were my first Ashley Wilcox reads but they wont be my last.
4.5 stars :)
