QUINN IS BACK and pushing the limits on it all -- suspense, sex, love, gut-wrenching emotions -- with a fiery intense conclusion to his and Lexi's story. The more Alexis runs, the harder Quinn fights for her.
It's an undeniable truth; bad things happen to good people, and Lexi is not impervious to the realities of the life she left behind.
Keeping Lexi safe at all cost, Quinn remains unwavering in his duties, constantly putting his life on the line, time and time again.
Two tortured souls are pushed to the edges of their sanity and their love will be put to the test. Tempers flare, emotions burst, and love flickers, but after the ultimate explosion, can forgiveness be found amongst the rubble?
Alexis needs Quinn more than ever...and Quinn must decide if Lexi is truly his fate or if their romance was never meant to survive beyond his mission. One thing is for certain: neither Quinn nor Alexis will be the same after surfacing from the mountain trails. Now that they've survived the wild, can they survive each other?
I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
Quinn II picks up directly where Quinn left off, with Alexis in danger and Quinn putting himself on the line to try to save her. Quinn II is not a standalone and Quinn needs to read first.
What I Loved: J.C. Cliff can write off-the-charts steamy scenes. I'm talking just insanely hot blush inducing with their fiery intensity. The push and pull between Alexis and Quinn can be a little much but when they are on, they are totally ON. A hidden gem of the story is Kimber, Quinn's retired military service dog. Kimber's relationship with both Quinn and Alexis added nice notes of sweetness to the overall story.
What I Didn't Love: Pacing is an issue in Quinn II. Where Quinn had a slow but steady build to physical and suspenseful action, Quinn II starts with heavy action, stumbles with a few twists and begins to fade into a HEA. No spoilers but as a warning to those with triggers, there is a rape scene that may cause some discomfort. That scene, the role it played between the two leads, and how it was addressed kept me from completely investing in the stories end.
"I'm amazed how he fights for us at every turn, and he's right; our connection can't be denied."
"We might not be all right today or tomorrow, but I promise you: I will use every last ounce of love that runs through this heart of mine, and then some, until you and each one of your beautiful senses can grasp how deep my love runs for you."
"I only have two speeds, baby. That's stop and go; you know that."
