This shouldn’t be happening again…
Amber Scott thought her screaming nightmares would end now that her stalker is locked up and awaiting trial. But they return when her slam-dunk case starts to fall apart. Explicit letters she allegedly wrote surface, suggesting she was the mastermind behind her assault, a willing victim.
Amber only feels safe in the arms of her boyfriend Marcus, the one person she can lean on. Until damning evidence from Marcus’s past collides with the case and the media circus drags them both down. To protect Amber’s reputation, Marcus has only one option: end their relationship. He won’t risk further damage to her case, even if it means breaking her heart.
Amber has to find the strength to step into the spotlight and bring awareness to victims’ rights before she’s convicted in the court of public opinion. And she’s really not sure what’s worse—that her kidnapper could walk free, or that the seemingly endless attention and speculation will drive Marcus away permanently…
See how it all began for Amber and Marcus in Tell Me When.
4.5 Stars from Shera!
This story is a continuation from Tell Me When, which you must read before reading Let Me Know. I seriously fell in LOVE with Amber and Marcus right off the bat in Tell Me When so when I finished, I went right on to the next book and I give them both 4.5 Stars!!! This book will break your heart, make you cry, and put you back together again with all the crazy glue going on in this series.
The first story was a roller coaster. Amber and Marcus both have had horrible things happen in their lives in the past. Amber had something horrific happen to her which haunts her every day. Looking over your shoulder isn’t fun, worrying about everyone around you is draining. She is a beautiful girl with a good heart, just trying to overcome her past. But her past seems to continue to haunt her, in one way or another.
Then we have Marcus. One look at Marcus spells trouble to those that don’t know him. He has rules, never wants a girlfriend and normally doesn’t sleep with the same girl more than once. But for those that do (like myself now) know that he is one hot, sexy, smart, loving ball of yumminess. He too has had a life that, well no one wants to live like that. He came from an abusive home and lost his brother in the process. When you hear his story your heart will break for him. He is selfless in trying to protect others, as he really has no family so he tries to make sure those he cares about stay intact.
Throughout both books Amber and Marcus love grows. They certainly need each other’s shoulders to lean on and overcome so many obstacles that are continually shoved in their faces. They come to realize that they are one another’s strength, they are helping one another heal and watching their love for each other grow is utterly amazing.
“Amber slips her arms around my neck and kisses me. It’s neither a quick kiss nor one filled with hunger and want. This kiss is slow and pure, and the tough of a million unspoken promises.”
Can Amber hold on and not let her past determine her future? Can Marcus finally stand up for what he knows is right to finally start living again and will they do it together?
The storyline is fantastic, the writing is wonderful and I absolutely love dual POV written books. You hear both their thoughts as situations happen and I just love it! The other characters, mainly Chase and Jordan, I can’t wait to see if anything happens with them (crossing my fingers we will see them again).
This book was an amazing journey about healing. It’s about finding support in the people around you and accepting the help they offer when you don’t think you need it. It’s about confronting your fears, letting go and moving on.
Thank you Stina for Amber and Marcus. I recommend these books to anyone; I was pleasantly surprised and can’t wait to read more!!
