This adventure takes Anita to a place that she has never really gone to before. Feelings are not something that Anita has embraced. Now she must find a way to help both herself and her good friend; Jason. If you are looking for the fast and constant action of the earlier books you will not find it in this story. This book gives the readers more of an insight on the personalities and emotions of these characters. I love both Jason and Anita and enjoyed this foray into their personal lives. Sometimes it is nice to just sit back and see some of the nuances in the relationships of this series. This book is about relationships and bonding not finding and beating the bad guy. I will admit it is full of sex but as I see it that is Anita’s way of bonding.

Both Jason and Anita need help in their current relationships and it seems that each one can help the other. Jason needs to explain his need for pain and pleasure while Anita is working through her first relationship with a female. As the two find a way to work through and help each other with their problems we watch Anita grow emotionally. She finds that she cannot be everything for everyone.

Jason is one of my favorite characters in this series and I was happy to see him as a main character in this book.  This book may not be filled with action but it still grabs your attention. I enjoyed it and loved seeing the bonding and emotional growth in this story. Love and friendship are very prominent in this book.  It was nice to see the other side of some of the characters in this series. We get to know more about what makes them tick. I was easily pulled in to this story. Emotions are strong right from the start and never waver. There is a lot of sex in this story but it is a bonding of the characters. Along with the sex is the dialogue. I enjoyed being able to see past the faces that these characters show the world and get a glimpse at their true selves.

This book is a great addition to the series for me and helps me to better understand some of the decisions Anita makes. I am glad I got to read this book and am eagerly waiting for the next Anita adventure.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
