Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing.
Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets.
Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more.
Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, Jackson is determined to protect her—at all costs.
Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good?
Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

OMFG!!! What an ending. I am in love with this series. My review will come later, I need book 3, right the fuck now!

Two days later:

*And breathes*

This was a fantastic sequel that paved the way to stronger characterisation and a notch up on the danger scale. Jackson’s decision to walk away in the hope to protect Ana was a painful one, and with the added male POV, it really helped getting inside the head of the young man who has so much to lose in loving the broken girl from Florida.

Ana is going through the notions. The man who put her back together has walked away, and the pain from her past rears its ugly head. The need to distract herself from her internal suffering is manifesting into self-harm, reverting back to bad coping mechanisms that got her through last time. Luckily for her, she has friends who notice and just as she is getting her head back in the game, he is suddenly everywhere.

Ana and Jackson can only take so much, and desperation to be with the one you love outweighs the fear of being caught. Consequences be damned, but Braiden is watching, and it’s only a matter of time before the cards fall, and Jackson and Ana make a decision that make or break them for good.

I am really enjoying this series, and the double POV narrative was a welcome addition to this sequel in the Chastity Falls Series, if anything it highlighted Jackson’s position and the dilemma he faces in letting an outsider into the corrupt family fold.

Ana, having a deep interest in investigative journalism is on a quest for answers, and they don’t come easily, but when they do the story goes from dramatic to dangerous which creates a power ending / gripping opener for book three – I just had to dive straight in.
