what did I think of it, 4 stars

This is actual the first book that I've ever read by Lis Wiehl and I have to say it was better then I thought it was going to be even though its the second book in her series and I haven't read the first book I'm still glad that I give this a try, while I did like it I really did like it I just didn't love it, and that's not saying there's non thing wrong with it , it did in fact pull me into the story and once I started read it I was hooked , it just didn't make me love it , I loved the idea behind the story and I loved the main character Erica , who is and was an interesting character to read because she's flawed, human, smart, brave and savvy , plus I loved how suspenseful it was though out the story so much that I read in one setting, and will be pick it up as well as book one when I can , with that said I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion and review and that these are 100 % my own thoughts .
