Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

Faced with the scariest decision of her life, Missy is going behind enemy lines to save the rebel that seems to haunt her every dream. Finding courage is one of the hardest things she’s ever done, especially when she comes face-to-face with a terrifying reality. The green eyes that have fascinated her, no longer gleam with recognition. Now Missy must find a way to not only get them out alive, but to save the mind of the man who is quickly capturing her heart. And she must do it all without getting caught. Put to the test, will Missy be able to rise above her fears and find love, or watch it all blow up in smoke?

*This book is for mature audiences due to sexual situations, violence and strong language

This book solely focuses on the romance between Tyler and Missy. There isn’t much plot development, and none of the other characters make much of an appearance (Charlotte, Ludwig, etc.). Missy is such a weak and minor character to begin with and she really can’t pull off an entire book on her own. At first she was pretty brave, etc. but then there is a traumatic event further into the book and she just shuts down and not much happens after that until the end. I understand how this is going (a different character for every book), but I think the series would have been stronger to focus every book on moving along the plot with the main and interesting characters (like Charlotte) and interweave the others as possible. It just didn’t match the caliber of the proceeding books.
