His problem, the death of Abigail's father, and the very same shady dealings are all tied together. Only this time, Ryan hopes this latest discovery won't lead him and Abigail down a path of danger from which he won't be able to protect them...
Jessica Lauryn does an amazing job yet again drawing her readers in from the very start with amazing plot twists, action, and scorching hot chemistry between her hero and heroine. If you haven't already read this amazing series I definitely recommend the Pinnacle of Power Series starting from the very beginning. Although, I have to say each novel also could be a stand alone, it's so well written.
I began reading this series a little backward, meaning not in the order it was clearly intended and I'm not sure why, but reading this makes me want to go back and read the others once again. Great Job, Jessica, I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
