Easton Wells has spent years burying his guilt by digging up some of the world’s most renowned treasures while surviving the dangerous terrains in which they’re located—all captured for television. When his producers threaten to axe the show, he has no choice but to turn to the last person he still trusts—the girl he left behind.
Rain Walker has made a name for herself documenting wild and endangered animals, and the last voice she expects to hear while shooting in South Africa is Easton’s. He’s more gorgeous than she remembers, but the pain in her heart is as fresh as ever. They’d once planned on spending the rest of their lives together, but after her father’s tragic death while on expedition in Israel with him, Easton bailed on their future together without an explanation. It’s been nine years, and yet the intense love they shared seems only a moment ago.
When he asks her to film his latest treasure hunt, Rain wants to turn him down instantly. But when he explains it’s to the same cave that swallowed her father, she can’t say no. She wants to experience the last place her father was alive, and she’s beyond curious about what happened to the boy she used to love.
They’ve got two weeks to locate a treasure that’s been lost for centuries, or Easton will lose the one thing in his life he’s come to depend on. As their old passion is reignited—and dark secrets uncovered—they face the extreme terrain of the mountain range that threatens them at every turn. As more than the wildlife and sharp drop-offs tries to kill them, Rain starts to question if the legendary treasure they seek—the same one her father had died trying to unearth—is truly meant to be found, or if some things, including their feelings for each other, are better left buried.
I have a new author to love on, y’all. Her name is Molly E. Lee. After I enjoying Edge of Chaos as much as I did, I decided what the hell, why not dive immediately into the second book. So, that’s precisely what I did. Now, I’ve never watched Indiana Jones (I know, I know, sheesh) but I’d like to think it’s exactly like this. (And if it is, I might have to watch it… soon.)
Easton and Rain were such an easy couple to get behind. Their history was sad, but I hoped for a better future for them. Easton bailed on Rain when she needed him most, after the death of her father, which sounds like a pretty douchebag move, but his reasons were solid. Guilt does funny things to a person. Now as his career is at a crossroads, he’s back asking for her help on the adventure of a lifetime. It was easy to see their feelings for each other hadn’t faded during their separation. And thankfully it didn’t take all that long for them to indulge in each other during their trip. (SO HOT!) The secrets of their past had a way of coming out as they searched for relics in the caves of Israel. I was confident they would complete their mission AND find their way back to each other.
The first book in this series had me on edge a couple times, but it was nothing compared to what this one did. Holy cow, it was intense. Whether they were traversing dangerous terrain or fleeing from people with guns, I was wide-eyed and my heart was pounding. I’m not exaggerating either. I was completely wrapped up in every single thing about Easton and Rain’s story, so it was easy to feel like I was right there with them during their adventures. And those adventures? They made me a nervous wreck.
I love books with unique settings and characters with unusual jobs. I also adore second chance romances. East of Redemption gave me all that and it was super hot and sexy, too. This was another of those read in one sitting kind of books. I’m beginning to suspect that’s the norm with Molly’s books. We’ll find out soon when I start the third. 🙂 I’m totally hooked.
Hope was a whisper in the dark, tempting me to the edge.
He wouldn’t want you living your life the way you are… closed off, angry, and fighting demons in your sleep. I don’t know what happened to you, but I know enough that my father would want you to live. Not just survive.
“You’re wet and ready for me, Rain. Because you’re mine. You’ll always be mine.”
