I wanted a second chance. What I got was a repeat.

She was too beautiful. Too smart. And her emerald green eyes saw too much. 

I wanted space—she took it away.
I craved her lips—she gave me her kiss. 
I screwed it up—she got smart. 

Avoiding me is the right thing to do. I’m messed up, tortured, and probably always will be.
But I still want her. 
Her mind. Her body. Her heart. 
I want it all. 

And this time, I’m in control.
No matter what I have to do, I will make her mine. 

Note: Levi and Ivy’s story will continue in Book Three—Fox.



This is book 2 of a trilogy that is a complete departure for the authors who are known as Max Monroe. For those of you who are fans of Max Monroe, you know they are masters at writing romantic comedies. This book is most definitely not a romantic comedy, but it is so well written.

It’s like when you’re channel surfing and catch the beginning of a movie you’re not planning on watching. But you leave it on the channel so you can stand up and get a drink in the other room while it starts. You’re in the other room, but you’re listening to the movie and by the time you sit back down, the movie has started to suck you in, so you think to yourself you’ll just watch this movie a few more minutes. Before you know it, you’re half-way through the movie you never planned to watch, but it’s so good you are completely sucked in and can’t stop watching it now. That’s what this trilogy is like. The characters are so well developed and the story is so good. And just when you think you have a character figured out, they surprise you. So by this point, this movie you didn’t intend to watch, you’re now fully engaged in and you KNOW you’re going to watch the whole thing. Suspense is building, you’re on the edge of your seat and then… the screen turns black with the words “to be continued”.

That’s pretty much where you are when you finish Cold, book 2 of this series. Then you find yourself yelling at the TV, or in this case, your kindle. And you’re yelling at the authors for ending the 2nd book at this place, and you’re cursing their names, when you know secretly they’re laughing in glee for what they’ve done to you.

So that’s where we are. I re-read book 2 just to make sure I got all the details and it left me just as distraught the second time I read it as it did the first time. I NEED to get my hands on this 3rd book as soon as possible. I NEED to know how the movie, err book ends!

I was generously provided an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I give this a 5 out of 5 stars.
