~ Synopsis ~
~ Excerpt ~
I’m brushing my teeth when Asher swaggers into the bathroom. He leans his hip against the counter and just watches me. It’s starting to freak me out. I squint at him before spitting.
“Can I help you?”
“Huh?” he asks.
“You’re staring.” I tip my toothbrush at him.
“Am I?” He tilts his head to the side and crosses his arms.
I spit one last time and start my flossing routine and gargle my mouth rinse, all while Asher just stands there, observing me. Seriously, what’s he doing?
“Curious about dental care?”
“Curious about you,” he shoots back.
He shrugs. “I like watching you do normal, everyday things.”
I blink. “Did you get clocked in training today?”
“No.” He slides his hands into the pockets of his pajama bottoms. “Want to have a sleep over?”
“Sleepover?” I repeat, less than enthused.
“Pajamas, pillow fights, gossip. You know, sleepover,” he clarifies, like I’m an idiot.
I sigh. “You’re freaking me out. What the hell is going on?”
He reaches for me and grabs the hem of my tank top, pulling me towards him. I stumble a bit and have to place my hands on his shoulders for balance as he tugs me closer. “I want you in my bed tonight. I was hoping you’d fall asleep in my arms.” His eyes lock onto mine.
~ Review by Angela ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Restraint picks up where Revelation leaves off. There are more twists and turns in this book as well. I was also hoping that because this was the second book, the “with that” issue would have been taken care of. No such luck. The phrase is used throughout the book a lot. Ugh. The predictability is kind of a buzzkill. I am really interested to see what happens in the next book though as I still like the story and the characters. I really and truly hope that the pesky “with that” issue will have been fixed by the third book. I give Restraint 3.5 books.
BOOK 3, Redemption, will be reviewed on here on 12/22/14
