"Safe At Last" (Maya Banks) ★★★★ AVAILABLE NOW!!!

The third book in the beloved #1 bestselling author’s sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series…
They say young love doesn’t last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack CovingtonAnna-Grace—his “Gracie”—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.
Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.
Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He’ll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they’ll never be torn apart again.








Cat's Review
"Safe at Last" tells the story of Zack and Gracie.  Wow!  And what a story they have to tell too!  Zack and Gracie were in love but lies and betrayal separated them for twelve long years.  When Zack stumbles upon Gracie, he's shocked.   More shocking is her reaction to him.  My heart broke for both of these characters, but I have to say, even more so for Zack.  Yes, Gracie suffered terribly but he truly is devastated by her fear of him.   This story is not a light and fluffy romance - there is danger and heartache and brutality.  I have to be honest and say, that at times, I thought it was a bit redundant - over and over about what and why each one thought the other did, but I suppose it was done for the build up.   I wasn't overly thrilled with the last part of the book - I was a bit surprised by Gracie's actions and thought the three women banding together was just a bit much.  Although I don't disagree with their feelings about being locked away to be kept safe, it was just a bit of a stretch for me.  I have read all three books and highly recommend the reader to do the same.  There is a lot of background that you won't necessarily understand if you don't.  I have enjoyed this series and Ms. Banks' style of writing.  This, as the other two were, is a tale filled with danger and love, angst and rejoicing.   I hope that Ms. Banks continues this series as I would really like to see some of the other characters get their HEA.  (received copy from Edelweiss for honest review).
