Blurb:  In the end, did I stab him to be free of him? And free to what? Fuck? Snort? Party? Or free to be normal?
It was a very interesting situation, up there on Maundy,” Elliot said.

“Nothing like it in the world. It’s a safe place for people like me.”

“People like you? Can you be more specific?” He ran his finger on the edge of his blotter, and a chill went up my inner thighs.

“People like me means, I don’t know. Fuckers. We fuck because it’s what we do. Bus drivers drive. Accountants account. Policemen police. I’m a fucker. I fuck.”


Review:  The story picks up right where Kick left off.  Fiona is still trying to figure things out.  Her family is involved, which is good and bad.  They want her out, but whose interests do they have at heart?  Is it so she takes the press’ focus away from other family matters?  Or is it to help her?  There is a lot at play in this regard.

Then there is Elliot, her psychiatrist.  He wants to do what’s best for her and goes against her family’s wishes by keeping her in.  However, he is having some issues of his own regarding feelings towards Fiona forcing his departure.  This sends Fiona in a bit of a tailspin.

Then, the mysterious Deacon is back.  He has healed and is asking to see Fiona.  We learn a bit more about their relationship which is quite interesting.  Fiona starts remembering some things, but are they what really happened or is she still making it up as she goes?  Only Deacon knows what really happened, and when we find out, it puts quite a spin on things.

This fast-moving story has a lot going on but it is all very interesting and kept me engaged.  Of course, this one ends with things hanging a bit, and I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next installment.

Overall Impression:  I really liked it

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
