From the New York Times bestselling author of Because You Are Mine, When I’m With You, and The Affair comes the second novel in the Glimmer and Glow series.
Alice Reed never dreamed she’d escape the stigma of her disturbing past. That’s why she was shocked when, out of the blue, she was recruited to join the elite Durand Enterprises by the enigmatic CEO himself, Dylan Fall. The erotic charge between them was fast and deliciously forbidden. But as Alice opened up to worlds she’d never known, everything changed once again with a stunning discovery: there’s much, much more concealed in the shadows of Alice’s troubling childhood, and her life is about to change forever.
Now, with another piece of the puzzle of Alice’s identity revealed, a mysterious adversary plots to destroy it all—and Dylan is determined to protect her. But as Alice’s sexual addiction to Dylan turns helplessly to love, she can’t help but wonder: how deeply can she really trust him? What were his true motives in drawing her close to him? And what other secrets does he know about her past that even she has yet to learn?
In Kery's highly erotic but deeply unsatisfying sequel to Glimmer, main characters Alice Reed and Dylan Fall remain disappointingly two-dimensional. They are stick figures skittering over the slick surface of a shallow, meandering plot interspersed with Alice's hazy flashbacks of a grim past. Dylan, CEO of Durand Enterprises, is dead certain that Alice, one of his employees, is the company founder's long-lost daughter, but he feels that Alice is too emotionally fragile to deal with the truth. Of course, that ostensible fragility doesn't stop him from getting romantically involved with her. As their clandestine affair bounces between tiptoeing over Alice's delicate psyche and diving into raw, brutal sex, the story's slender thread of credibility frays even further. When someone from Alice's dark past emerges to threaten her life, the tension amps up but is still underwhelming. Will Dylan be able to come to her rescue? Will Alice muster the emotional strength to assume her role as heir to the Durand Enterprises fortune? It's hard to find any reason to care.

A bit drag
It's a sequel but this one feels to dragged out which wasn't the most exciting aspect. It could have been half the number of writing for the same content.
