I Love Story Time's Review by Juls

4 Stars!

I will admit, when I started this ARC, I did have to go back and skim through The Lost One since it has been awhile since I've read it. Once I did, it all came rushing back to me! The way it ended had my heart stopping. Even after I read it for the second time, my heart stopped once again! I remembered the way it ended and the details about the sister but I wanted to get the full details and the emotions that I once had. I really enjoyed, The Missing One. I loved that we got so many answers that we were left with from book 1. This story was FULL of suspense. I liked getting the whole story; down to every detail with the characters. I also really liked the relationships between the characters. Corban, as always, is so powerful, but yet a big teddy bear. The relationship that he continues to have with Melodi, continues to warm my heart. The love and support they have for each other never faltered. I was so excited to get to see their relationship blossom. They truly deserved to be happy. Then there's Blake. I liked Blake from book 1. Not only is he a cop, but he is the sweetest thing and so sexy. I can only imagine what he looked like in his uniform! There were so many times that he would say things that brought tears to my eyes. I enjoyed Blake's story. The Missing One alternates between the past and present so we get to see the connection he had with Abby...before. Blake was there for Abby while she was going through an abusive relationship with Jacob. At first, he would notice her from afar, until he finally approached her, changing everything in Abby's life.

“I’m sorry, I was blind for so long and wasn’t looking until that day I saw you there upset and down. Something within me wanted to help you, then that something grew from wanting to assist you into wanting to be a part of your life. I wanted to save you from the hell you’d been living and to show you what heaven on earth can be like with the right person.”

I loved when he told Abby....

“Please give me a chance to be your.. much better”

I think that this was a great follow-up to book 1. It answered my questions and gave me so much more than I'd expected. I will say that if you're someone that can't handle reading about abusive relationships, this may not be for you. Towards the end, it had my heart pounding and was pretty violent. That being said, it may be a bit harsh for some. But all in all, it was REALLY good!!
