Celeste Donovan, a high-powered finance executive, seems to have it all—the penthouse apartment, the supermodel physique with a mathematician mind, and a trail of beautiful men she has loved and left behind.
But when her boyfriend Theodore is killed in a mysterious accident, she discovers Omar, her abusive ex she had hoped would never resurface, is behind his death.
Now she’s caught in a game of cat and mouse, trying to anticipate Omar’s next move, as she realizes he will stop at nothing to get to her. She sets out alone on a whirlwind journey to entrap him, determined to put an end to Omar’s destruction.
Soon Celeste is thrust in the middle of the largest financial scandal in decades. This time, however, powerful government officials are in bed with some of the world’s most dangerous men.
When she discovers that those she thought she knew best are involved in a secret society warring with Omar and his coconspirators, she must decide how far she will go to avenge Theodore’s death and whether she is willing to risk her own life to save everyone she loves.
I adore Celeste, she is a brilliant main character who is a strong, powerful woman who doesn’t take any crap. What a protagonist to have for own main character.
However, we do have some rather graphic accounts of her abuse at the hands of Omar. These scenes have been uncomfortable and may put many readers off this book.
However, I have to say that this is an action packed novel which is filled with details. The author has really wanted to give us a clear picture to visualise when reading this one.
The mystery and suspense are high throughout this book. I have been happy to find this is focused on Celeste’s survival rather than the horrific ordeal. We encounter the great friendships that Celeste has in her life. This has been an interesting read and one which I am thrilled to review.
This for me is a four star read purely because of the uncomfortable scenes of abuse.
