After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed. Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion….
I liked this one as much as the first book, maybe a little more. I really like our main characters America and Chase, they have a great relationship. I love how they are totally there for each other and fiercely loyal. And THANK YOU there is no love triangle! There is so much going on in the story and I am just so glad that stupid plot device was not used in this series! Chase is a great leading man. True, he is a bit on the quite site, but I kinda like that about him. He is so sweet with America and understands her so well. He is also very protective of her. You don’t mess with his girl. America is a good heroine. She is easy to like and root for.
This is a little dark though. America and Chase do not have it easy. There is a lot of drama and sad stuff throughout the story. It just seems like one thing happens after another. America and Chase stick together and really help overcome everything that is thrown at them.
I’m not sure how everything is going to be wrapped up in the next book. This one does end with a bit of a cliff hanger. We did get some things resolved, but we’re also left with a lot of questions. I look forward to reading the next book and hope America and Chase can get their happily ever after.
