The Broken Lake by Shelena Shorts
The Broken Lake:
In the aftermath of Sophie's ordeal, Weston will make some uncharacteristic decisions to distance himself from the past in an attempt to change the future.
But, while venturing into the improbable, the present sneaks up in a chilling way that will lead to Wes' unexpected submission. Suddenly, Sophie will find herself watching as both his immortal secret and his own existence are threatened.
Continuously intriguing, The Broken Lake takes readers to a place where eternal bonds confront a division that is sure to leave everyone wondering whom they can trust.
This was a great follow-up to the events that occurred in The Pace, Shelena Shorts created even more mystery and new characters. I felt Sophie grew a little in the aftermath of her abduction and although he remained relatively the same, I enjoyed Weston’s desire to keep Sophie safe and happy. There is a new employee, Chase, where Sophie works and he seems to know a lot more about Sophie and Weston then they would like. While Weston is out of town, Sophie is convinced to join her friends to see a boxing match, only it’s not a boxing match, it’s a fight club—and Chase is fighting. Sophie realizes something is wrong when Chase becomes incredibly violent with his opponent. Chase begins to dog her footsteps and his behavior becomes even more erratic, leading to a confrontation between him and Weston. To get away from Chase and the stress that he brings, Sophie and Weston go on a short vacation to Virginia to visit an old friend of Sophie’s. Something incredible happens between them, and the romance is sweet and lasting. It’s dangerously cold for Weston and their romantic getaway is cut short when strangers demand Weston to leave the chalet and accompany them to an unknown location. Now Sophie has returned home and there is still no sign of Weston. I’m even more intrigued to read The Iron Quill, the next book in the series.
