After her father commits a crime that shatters her family, eighteen-year-old Delaney Cross is tired of pretending everything is alright. Packing up her car, she sets out to find the people her father hurt. Her search leads her to places she's never been--and into the arms of Adrian Westfall.

To the outside world, Adrian is a sexy, charming ladies man. But his playboy persona is just an act. Secretly his soul is tortured by a memory too painful to share. Only Delaney seems to see through his façade to the real man underneath. And for the first time in his life, Adrian feels he can begin to open up about his past.

Together, Adrian and Delaney share a passionate, carefree love they never expected to find. Yet both still harbor their own secrets. When the dark truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together, or tear them apart forever?

I started this book not even knowing it was a sequel. I didn’t find out until about halfway through that it was book 2 in a series and I only found out because I was looking at it on Goodreads and saw that it was apart of the Game series.
So that, I think, is a good thing about this book: You can read it without having read the first book, Charade, in the series. I didn’t start reading it and get confused by anything that may have happened in the first book of the series..I guess it also helps that the main characters are different in this one, but the characters in the first book are here too.

That said, let’s move on to the story. When Delaney was 14 years old her father commits a crime that tears apart her family. Four years later she’s tired of pretending everything is alright. She wants to find forgiveness and move on with her life. Her and her brother, Maddox, pack up and go in search of the people her father hurt. Once there, She meets Adrian Westfall by chance, and who might this be? That’s right the one person she came to this town to find.

I guess you can figure out what happens from here.
It seems pretty obvious to me what will happen in this book, but in case you’re curious…

Boy this book got the best of my emotions, I was tearing up every few pages. That’s one of the signs of a talented writer: Strong emotional reactions to their books. Ha.
I’m giving this book 3 and half stars. It’s not something I’d ever read more than once but I enjoyed it and I would definitely give other Nyrae Dawn books a read in the future. 🙂
