This is the 3rd book in this series. This book is better then the last 2. I still have the same exact complaints as the first 2 but I do like the story line. I really did love the new characters in this book. Every book we get to know more of Tori's backstory and more secrets are revealed. Slowly the whole story is being given and the lies that have been told are making some sense.
We pick up right where Bound left off. Except not in Tori POV instead in the man that made her run outta the music store and onto a bus. Remember back to book one Captive we heard about Henry. The guy who practically raised Tori and he genuinely loved and cared about her. We met Henry's younger half-brother Michael Anderson. Michael had made a promise to his brother to take care of Tori. Micheal knows his brother loves this girl but for the life of it he can not see or understand why. But, he'd do anything for Henry. Michael has been waiting for Henry to send him the girl. But, hasn't heard anything from Henry in a year.
Eddie Farrell the head of the dragons had made Michael get a job as head security for the group Indelible. He couldn't believe his eyes when he saw Tori working there. When she saw him and took off he convinced Terry he was there to help and protect her. Now, their on a bus to Denver for who knows what. Michael can't stand Tori and the feelings are mutual. Tori thinks Michael took advantage of her all those years ago. She doesn't realize that other then Terry he's the only other guy in her life to never touch her. Michael can't even look at her. He thinks she's nothing but a dirty nasty slut a dirty whore. Little does he realize that all that time with the Dragons she did things not by choice. She did it to stay alive. She did it to not get beat up and hurt more then she already was. Tori had to adapt.
Michael got Tori to agree to let him stay with her until she got to her final destination and settled down. They get to Denver and eventually end up in Texas. Tori knows it's the perfect place to disappear too. Tori knows as long as she's alive the organization will never stop looking for her. Which means she'll never be 100% safe. That's why she can not have friends bc she will not let anybody else get hurt because of her.
Michael refuses to leave Tori. They agree on a date he will leave by. Tori tries to just ignore the man. That definitely doesn't work too well. With the money they have they buy an abandoned gas station with attached house. Michael shows Tori all about fixing houses and certain basic living. Everything is basically new for Tori from what she was used to growing up with the Dragons. Tori then teaches Michael how to fix motorcycles. They fix them up and sell them and do it all over again.
The more time these two spend together the more they realize they were wrong about the other. Michael can see why is brother loved Tori. He knows there is nobody that can protect, care and love her like he can. He needs to make her his and that includes her having his last name. Tori realizes Michael isn't the man she thought he was. And, the more time she spends with him the more she realizes she doesn't want him to leave. She wants him to stay which is so weird for her. Just when they both thought they had everything figured out for now somebody from Tori past comes knocking at their front door.
This book moved pretty quick for me. I loved how we got a completely different side of Tori. Michael POV of her was great to see. Even though they spent so much time without speaking to each other. They still figured out a way to coexist together. The more space Michael gave her the more Tori opened up. The more stuff she learned she liked and the new stuff she learned. Tori learned how to live an everyday life. The way she should have. Tori learned to trust Michael. I loved that she started having flashbacks/dreams. From what and where we still aren't sure. But, I'm hoping that means we will find out more of Tori's past life sooner then later. Seeing how patient Michael was with Tori was awesome. He went from thinking the worst of the worst to the opposite. Even when he didn't think highly of her he still gave her the respect. Even if just for the sake of his brother. Other then Terry he's probably the best thing to enter her life. I still could not stand the lack of dialogue and the way stuff was worded. It killed me!! It's obvious by the storyline that the author is not a prude. So, why the words folds and salty ooze and others. It takes away from what's actually going on. For me anyway. I will read book 4 bc I need to know what's next for Tori and Michael.
