Overview

Eighteen years ago the Blade Hunter found his first victim on the streets of New York City.

As a child Josephine Maxwell was attacked and left for dead. She learned the hard way that life is a constant struggle for survival. She can't waste time pining over a man she can't have. Now the killer has returned, and the only person who can save her is the FBI agent she deceived and betrayed six months ago.

Now he's back to finish the job.

Special Agent-in-Charge Marshall Hayes has made it his life's work to fight on the side of law and order, even though it cost him the only woman he ever loved. The return of a serial killer gives him the excuse he needs to force his way back into her life. But in order to catch the killer and safeguard Josie's life, he has to break all the rules and risk losing his heart again.

## BAD, really bad. How did this book get such good reviews? It was exasperating. It dragged on and on. And on. The hero was such an ass*ole. How in the world are we to believe this woman falls for him? They had no chemistry. None. Zilch. Nix. Nada. That's one thing I can't forgive when reading any type of romance. And the guy lusted after an 18 year old (half his age) and a female police officer too? The term douchebag comes to mind. And no groveling for the way he treated her, deceived her? Ugh. No thanks. She should've kicked this guy to the curb. Please don't waste your time. I will never be able to get these 5 hours back.

I enjoyed this, couldn't wait to read it. One thing has to change these long reviews. They really belong some place else. If you want honest reviews from readers who buy the books then don't give free copies for a honest review, they spoil the plot.

The secondary characters from the first book in the series get their own book. It's not just the dragging out of a story onto a  2nd book either - they are strong defined and complex characters all of their own are so powerful, they NEEDED their own story.  We first met Marshall and Josie in "Her Sanctuary" (you really should read this first!) This book picks up about 6 months later. Josie Maxwell is a survivor. She rallied her soul when she was carved into as a child and she is now a very distrusting and mysterious woman. She stays nowhere for long and has a...somewhat slippery hold on telling the truth. She’s a chameleon and only shows what emotions she wants you to see, she has an emotionless mask which she shows to the world to protect herself.  Now the Blade Hunter is back and is promising to finish what he started 18 years ago.  Marshall is a by the book FBI agent although in the previous book kind of blurred the lines of the law to make sure the heroine stayed alive. This brought hi into contact with Josie, who was her best friend and during one fateful night he obliterates the line altogether and realises her has more than a professional interest in Josie. But after the mistrust that built between them, a relationship  would be a minefield. When the Blade Hunter tracks down Josie, Marshall, who has been keeping tabs on her from afar, steps into the breech and does what he an to keep Josie safe, even from her own misguided attempts to save herself. He will do everything within his power to protect Josie even if she wants nothing to do with him.  There are interspersed scenes where we are with the killer and see his actions and thought processes, which were truly chilling!!!  Totally gripping characters and a terrific plot made this a fabulous 2nd book in the series!!!!

Loved the book! I loved the first book in the series that is why I bought this book. Great deal of suspense. The plot is weaving and not a great deal of characters (as some books are) that you get lost in the story line. I would highly recommend this book!

This is an extremely well written book, which quite frankly was beyond refreshing in this day of apparently no editting straight to ebook age. I loved this author's style! Amazing characters, dialogue, everything. I always figure out the bad guy....not this time. Great romance, edgy suspense, it has it all. Better than the first book...and that was terrific! Sex but not gratuitous...although I like that too. :)

¿A potent, taunting & hair-raising quest for closure.¿ My rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿ For eighteen years Josephine Maxwell has lived with the fear of her attacker coming back to finish the job he started, shielding herself from the world around her, her only connection her art and her one good friend. Never more alone since losing the last connection with her childhood six months ago and walking away from a man she could not get out of her mind, her nightmare was becoming a reality. No longer safe from her attacker, the only person able to help her is the same FBI agent she betrayed and left handcuffed to a bed. Working on major art crimes, FBI SAC Marshall Hayes has always been a stickler for law and order, following every rule by the book. But when he intercepts an emergency call from an address he knows only too well, he doesn't hesitate to throw out the rule book to get to the side of the complicated woman whom he has kept tabs on for the last half year. Finding out the man who scarred her for life has her back in his sights, rears every protective cell in Marshall's body. Trust is at a premium between Josie and Marsh, since their initial encounters six months ago left neither of them inclined to make that mistake again. But knowing well enough that alone she stands no chance against a killer intent on making her his next victim, Josie has no choice but to entrust Marsh with her safety, even if it makes resisting him as a man that much more difficult. Marsh doesn't trust anyone with Josie's safekeeping other than someone of his choosing, but finds the line between needing to be close and wanting to be close to Josie blurred. The closer they are entangled in their dual pursuit to bring down the killer before he brings them down, the more difficult it becomes to deny the truth that has been in their hearts the whole time..... ******* AGAIN!!! Fan-freakin-tastic example of suspence-romance writing!!! HER LAST CHANCE has a slight dark and tragic flavour to it that I was not entirely able to get rid of, despite the outcome of the book. But Toni Anderson's writing is so sharp, insightful and well-balanced, I overcame my slight 'hang-over' in no time. Josephine is such an incredibly strong, sad, lonely and hurt individual, she has turned quite ascerbic in her social movements. Like a wounded cat, she snarls and snaps at anything or anyone that comes too close, thinking she is protecting herself, but instead pushing much needed protection away from her. With only a killer's singular focus on her, she is distrustful of anyone's interest and her own feelings. Frustrated with Josie's unapproachability and her flippancy towards his beloved law and order, Marshall is trying hard to come to terms with his own demons and restrictions before he can place his feelings for Josie properly. Finding his largely self-imposed structure had been necessary to keep some vestige of control of his life, with Josie he feels himself loosening those boundaries. A high intensity story, with action from the first page on, an intricate suspense tale with twists and turns that are susprising and a conclusion that is as near to closure as is possible to come. The characters are deep and rather brooding, but manage to lose themselves in each other. And the writing is clever, hot and altogether fabulous!  ¿A potent, taunting & hair-raising quest for closure.¿ **ARC provided in return for an honest review.** You can read my blog at Ripe For Reader on blogspot.
