When Quin Levington shows up at her door, Josie Ryan is fuming. It's the one-year anniversary of Liam's death: her boyfriend and Quin's best friend. And it's been eight months since Quin fell off the face of the earth—when she needed him most. Despite the anger simmering inside her, part of her is relieved to see his warm hazel eyes. But he comes bearing news. Quin believes Liam's death wasn't an accident, and when Josie is attacked, it becomes shockingly clear that a killer is among them.
Quin has always been in love with Josie, but he'd never cross the line with his best friend's girl. He knows someone tampered with the harness that should have prevented his friend's fall, and since Liam's death someone has been trying to chase him away. After being framed for starting a bar fire, Quin was forced into hiding—and away from Josie.
He and Josie quickly realize that the killer won't let up until Josie is dead. Quin will do everything in his power to protect her. He owes it to his friend . . . and himself. But the closer he gets to Josie, the harder it is to keep his hands off her. Her haunting eyes are full of anguish and grief, but when her lips touch his, he knows he can never let her go. Not again. Together, they must bring the killer to justice and avenge Liam's death, once and for all.
Really enjoying this series!
This book moves along at a pretty fast pace, which I wasn’t sure I’d like but the way it plays out was actually really well done. Josie and Quin were loveable characters and their chemistry/relationship, despite the elephant in the room, was handled perfectly. Very much looking forward to Dead of Summer.
