Gervasio pulled back a pack of cigarettes from the pocket of his jeans, slipped one of the cancer sticks from the box and popped it between his lips. Lighting it, he glanced at the clock. How long had Ileana been out? Shouldn’t she have come to by now? He didn’t hit her that hard. Right? He needed her conscious. She was the only one who could tell him about Giovanna.
My initial thoughts: Are we finally going to get some more answers about the past????
At sixteen, Bella’s life has been filled with one tragic event after another. While on the road to recovery, she learns justice may not prevail. Refusing to let the bastard go unpunished, she decides to take matters into her own hands. A plot for revenge may be her undoing, but she’s determined to make Gervasio suffer.
With everything they’ve been through, the last thing Jeremiah expected from Bella were lies and secrets. He knows she’s out for blood, yet he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. Including turning her into the police.
Gervasio may have gone into hiding, but he won’t leave empty-handed. Bella has always belonged to him and he won’t leave town without her. He’ll make it so he’s all she has left, even if it means going out with a bang.
Is Bella so set out on revenge, she’s willing to accept the consequences? Is it too late for Jeremiah to play the hero? Or will Gervasio get what he wants once and for all?
