Otherwise Occupied was a darker story that centered around Evan’s PTSD and the crime aspect of his life. Evan is back in Chicago as the hitman for his mob boss, Rinaldo Moretti. This will take you through what his life if like and you really get to know Evan in this book. While there are quite a few references to Lia in this book, she never makes an appearance until the very end. There really was no romance to this story but it wasn’t necessary because it held my attention and kept me on my toes. The twist towards the end of the book really caught me off guard although I think I should’ve realized it was coming. Talk about a cliffhanger! Can’t wait for the next one in the series!

I still adore Evan Arden and this series. Ms. Savage has taken my breath away, again. Otherwise Occupied is the second book in the series and the characters still had me from the first chapter. I loved seeing Evan in the city doing his job day to day, so different from the first book. My heart broke for him several times and kept me on the edge of my seat rooting for him. I cannot wait for the third installment.

Shay Savage writes really intense books. The prequel to this is a must because it is an integral part of this one. I highly recommend Otherwise Occupied. Savage's characters demand nothing less than 100% investment from readers. They deliver gut punching emotion.
