Secret identities, second chances, drama, desire: It’s all going down in Miami Beach in this tantalizing novel from the bestselling author of Pull Me Close, which was hailed by Aurora Rose Reynolds as “a heart-gripping story about . . . the power of love.”
April: Walking away from Matt Moreno was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Lying to him was a close second, but for his safety, I had no other choice. I was undercover, working to put some nasty people behind bars. But when Matt nearly recognizes me on Lincoln Road a year later, all those very real feelings come rushing back. Now that my assignment’s almost over, will he understand why I lied? Why I had to leave? Most important, can he ever forgive me?
Matt: I was madly in love with June Simpson . . . or, at least, with the woman I thought was June. Then she just disappeared while my family’s nightclub went through hell. And after months of searching, when I think I’ve finally found that sexy, raspy voice and those exquisite blue eyes, she slips away once more. Turns out, “June” is actually Detective April White. She’s been playing me the whole time. And she’s about to rock my world all over again.
Make Me Stay is told in two parts, the first half we get to see Matt and April meet and follow the secret life that April leads. The second half is when she finishes her undercover assignment she took after leaving Matt when his and Nick’s dad is arrested and put in Jail.
This instalment we also enjoy more of Nick and Katherine and it actually explained a lot more of Nick’s intense personality, I truly understood further how he first reacts to Katherine in the Nightclub in Pull Me Close (Panic #1).
Matt was a character that was very closed off but he is actually a really sensitive guy and wears his heart on his sleeve. I loved the twist that brought April back to Matt’s life and let me just say I loved her work partner Dean, he was a good guy.
The second half of this story I loved more as I felt some real raw emotion between April and Matt, his fighting his feeling and her wanting to understand her life. One of my favourite parts for understanding Matt was his visit to his dad and I liked that in the second part we were given memories of their time together before April left, especially the red balloons, that was romantic.
The flow of this story was perfect, although not as intense as Pull Me Close I still really enjoyed this next instalment in this great series.
