Michael continues to fix up the house for him and Tori. Tori and Brian start to get to know each other more and more. Tori is teaching him about motorcycles. Brian starts teaching her more about music. Brian learns real quick she's not that bad. She needs more lessons. Tori is really enjoying the whole brother/sister thing. It's her marriage she's having issues with.
Michael owns Tori heart. But, Tori's having a problem going from the Dragons back into everyday life. Tori is missing something. She's not missing the alcohol or the fighting or the killing. Tori is missing what Brett and Enrique gave her. The sex. As much as she loves what her and Michael have. But, Michael will never get as down right raunchy and nasty that Enrique gets. Michael can sense that something isn't 100% right with Tori. But, he'll never push her to talk about something that she's not ready to talk about.
Michael is not only worried about him and Tori's issues, Michael has sat back and watched Tori and Brian as well. Brian can see his sister doesn't belong in Texas with Michael living the quiet life. Brian plans on going back to New Jersey. But, not without Tori. He knows she belongs on stage next to him. Unfortunately, his brother-in-law doesn't agree. At all!! Michael keeps trying to get Brian to see the big picture. Tori's been through a lot in her life. The FBI is still holding out. But, with proof that Brian IS her biological brother. That is the the way to get her emancipated. But, Tori needs stability and running off with Brian to be in the Indelible's wouldn't be good for her. Tori can sense the tension between her husband and brother. And, it's killing her.
Tori decides to stay behind her husband. Brian goes back to New Jersey and they promise to meet soon. Tori starts going to the house with Michael. She learns quick that Marge is sick. Tori starts going over there and helping Michael fix things up while helping Marge. Just when things are starting to fall into place for Tori and Michael they get a phone call. Brian and the rest of the guys were in a car accident and they need to get to Brian.
Tori insists on staying with Brian until he's healed 100%. Michael agrees but he'll follow Tori anywhere. Brian uses this time that Tori is here to take care of him to his advantage. Brian and Tori start playing music together more and more. The more they do that the more and more Michael gets mad. Michael and Brian can not agree on whats best for Tori. Tori is stuck between the 2 guys she loves the most in her life. Her family. Her husband. Her brother. Tori has 2 choices. Does she join Brian and become the newest member of Indelible? Or...Does she do what Michael wants. Go back home to Texas with Michael finish fixing up their house, and try to start a family. Michael lets her know either way he'll be by her side.
I really loved how much Tori grew in this book. Tori always try to do whats right for everyone. Even though she got all her memories back of her childhood with Brian and their parents. Also, took the extra step to figure out if and how if possible to be able to have a family of her own with Michael. She was good at dealing with Brian and Michael. I hated how the Organization is still out there and possibly still a threat. It killed me that even with them still around Brian was trying to talk her into throwing her into the spotlight so the whole world can see her. Pure stupidity!!! And, Michael. I want Michael!!! He's the perfect man. I wish I could find a man to love and worship me the way he did Tori. Poor guy always get the crap end of every deal. Even though Tori loved him with everything. She has no idea how to express how she's feeling. The good, bad or ugly she can't get it into the right words and it always makes matters worse. There's still not enough dialogue.But, I am looking forward to the next part of Tori, Michael, Brian and everyone else's story!!
