Mine to Keep (Mine Series 2) by Cynthia Eden

3.5 out of 5 Stars

Surprising Villain
I received Mine to Keep in a giveaway from the author. 3.5 Stars. In the previous book the heroine's problem was solved, so in this one we see the baggage the hero brings to the table. It was nice to see a book where both the hero and the heroine struggle. Most books you only get to see the hero solving the heroine but guys bring pasts and baggage too and it was nice to see the other side. There were a number of time I really wanted to smack the heroine in the story tho. She did a number of things when in danger that I just had a hard time to swallow. If you know you are in danger why would you insist on going anywhere without your guards? Also she knew he was in charge of a security company, so why is she surprised he had her watched? He almost killed a guy for her as a teen! Her attitude when it came to his business was irritating. She's ok with it when it's in her benefit to use him (for thousands of dollars worth of security and upgrades pro bono) but not any other time? I have to say that the hero really shined in this one. I was very happy with him and loved his patience. I was really surprised by who one of the villains in this piece was. I was also really disappointed about the character's reason for doing it. It was a nice blend of the hero's past and paving the way for the rest of the team's books. I can't wait to read the next one.
