BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Three years have passed since Dare Wilde walked out of Reagan McKinley's life. Three years of radio silence. Three years of regrets.

But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now, at twenty-two, Reagan has big plans to change her life, and it all starts with a trip to Europe. Instead of heading into Harvard Law like her parents had planned, she’s crossed the ocean to follow her dreams in the art world. Her dreams. For once.

A chance meeting in Paris brings Reagan and Dare face-to-face again, but is it serendipity...or penance? A chasm of unspoken hurt stands between them, but they can’t fight the passion they have for each other. And now that she’s found Dare again—the one person in this world who makes her feel whole—she doesn’t want to let go. Problem is, she may not have a choice.

Two parts. One whole.

Together...they’re out of control.

You know that you are sucked into a series when you want to call your friends and say, “Sorry I can’t come hang out tonight, I have something more important to do,” and then hang up and start reading book number three.  That is what I feel like doing right now. 

Reese and Green’s characters Dare and Reagan have captured my heart even more.  I know that they are perfect together, the whole world knows that they are perfect together (minus the McKinleys,) but fate keeps intervening.   I hate fate in this book!  This series keeps building on the intensity of Dare and Reagan’s relationship and it is just so real and natural.  What I mean by that is I can see two people, coming from different backgrounds, struggling to fight for their love with each other when outside forces are tearing them apart.  After Reagan denies knowing Dare at the end of the first book, which she did to protect him, she knows that she is still madly in love with him, even after three years.  So when she finally runs across him in Paris, she wants nothing else but him.  However, Dare is very resistant to her arrival, and understandably so.  But you know that he still holds the same amount of love for her that he did in the past but it is that struggle he shows to not have his heart rip out again that makes this book so real. 

Oh, what a rollercoaster of emotions this book is but it is worth every gasp.

This part was pure gold to me; it actually took my breath away:
“I stared at Dare, tears in my eyes, and held up two fingers.  Two parts. He held up one finger. One whole.”

Bloody fantastic!
