    In this story, a sadistic serial killer escapes from prison with one goal in mind: to bring down the woman who caged him for five years, District Attorney Lauren Chandler. And not only does he not care how many people he has to kill to get to her; but he absolutely

    in each bloody murder, lingering over his victims when he can, enjoying each slice of his blade and leaving pointed non-clues for those that he knows are chasing him.

    When the Bayou Butcher escapes, US marshal Anthony Ross immediately knows who his next target will be. Not only was Anthony part of the team that took down the killer, but he was also hopelessly addicted to Lauren as well; albeit in a much more romantic way. But he chose to walk away, for reasons of his own, leaving the stoic DA much more brokenhearted than she ever let on.

    Now these two attempt to head off their old nemesis. But he's smart and savvy, and it seems he's always one step ahead.

    Wow, I was riveted to this book. The pacing was perfection; I read it from start to finish in one night, staying up way later than I should have because the whodunnit completely eluded me until the big reveal. Is it just me or is it really hard to pinpoint the bad guy in Eden's novels? I never, ever can spot them! Same with this book...I had a couple of ideas, both of which ended up being wrong. Let me tell you, this guy is pretty bad. Not so gruesome that you have to be squeamish. No rape or really disturbing things....well, other than the fact that he likes to take his time slicing people up. But compared to the psychological darkness that seems to permeate romance lately, this was just good ole evil villain bad guy.

    I tend to love a second chance romance. I love the initial awareness between a couple that has already shared intimacy...it's a completely different atmosphere than just sexual attraction. It's sexual attraction paired with both affection and awkwardness. Lauren and Anthony most definitely have the awareness thing going on, but they also both have emotions that go much deeper than they are willing to let on. Each time they were together, the air sizzled. And when they finally seal the newest deal...WOW. Smoking hot, with real emotional depth behind the sexy.

    Lauren is a bit more reserved with her emotions, but she can't deny them. And when Anthony starts to sort of stake his claim again...because he can't help it, really...she seems to like it. And so did I! Possessive alpha, yes he is! Yet he's realistic and loveable as well. Not over the top in any way. THIS is an alpha that I'd like to lick...I mean, love...in real life.

    So, this was a second chance romance, fully self contained, phenomenally intense and just spicy enough to ramp up the romance. I five star read for me, and yet another example of Eden's amazing storytelling skills.

    There is one thing I know for sure I'm going to get whenever I pick up a book by Cynthia Eden; spine-tingling suspense and chilling action filled with twists and turns, with a super steamy romance thrown flawlessly into the mix.

    I have been a huge fan of Eden's since her Deadly series, and this book is the perfect example of why. My favorite thing about her writing, is her ability to let you into the killer's head. I love getting the bad guys POV, it always adds to the experience of the book. Fear For Me is the continuation of the Montlake Series, and I'd recommend reading Die For Me before. Although there is enough background information given that you can easily read it as a standalone.

    How thin is the line that separates love from obsession?

    5 years ago Lauren and Anthony had a passionate affair. They burned hot and bright, but then Anthony suddenly left, leaving Lauren's heart in pieces.

    But are things truly as they seem?

    When the shocking prison escape of a brutal serial killer puts Lauren's life in danger, they are reunited once more. But this time, Anthony knows that he will be unable to walk away and is determined to make Lauren his at all costs.

    I was sucked into the story from the very first page. It kept me at the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Just as I thought I had some idea of what was going on, Eden would throw in a twist that left me not knowing which end was up anymore. I love the unpredictability of her writing.

    Although the predominant part of the book was the suspense, the romance was the perfect addition. Eden always has just the right amount of steamy romance in her writing that it never takes away from the mystery and action. It's flawlessly interwoven into the story.

    Lauren, the tough as nails DA, was the perfect balance to Anthony's dark intensity. The passion between them was explosive. When they finally get together...

    Although you know who the killer is from the beginning doesn't mean a thing. There were so many twists and turns I couldn't get myself to put the book down until the end. Just as I thought I had nailed down what was happening, another twist was thrown in. And then another. And then another. It kept me guessing until the very end.

    If you're a fan of romantic suspense, you really can't go wrong with a Cynthia Eden book. A chilling and suspenseful ride from beginning to end.

    Cynthia Eden did it again! Kept me guessing until the very end.. I had all kinds of suspects on my list.. but NEVER saw it coming. Cynthia weaves a tale that just sucks you in. Gripping suspense and some smokin' sexy times too. Loved every minute of this from beginning to end. A MUST read for those that love romantic suspense.

    The suspense part is very good and it's the focus of the story. You might guess some things right away, but the author does a decent job of distracting a reader throughout the story. There are some less believable parts (I believe the U.S. Marshals are more competent), but nothing too bad.

    As for the love story, the reasons the two main characters aren't together are believable. As are the reasons for their reunion. I liked it.

    Recommended to romantic suspense lovers.

    I wouldn’t say this book was boring, but it was definitely less entertaining than average from Cynthia Eden. I finished only to find out who was the ‘partner’ of the serial killer. The whole story was a bit flat, IMO of course.

    Ugh! 2nd chance… Ugh! Couldn’t stand the hero. He was a side character in previous book and he didn’t show his best & strong side then; and in this story he was just meh.

    Both not celibate during separating, but he more than her. Since when does CE have such lines in her books?..:

    “I didn’t even realize why I was with the blonde.” He glanced over his shoulder. “When I called her by your name, then I knew.”

    I don’t find it romantic. Sorry for this OW! Plus his reason for leaving the h 5 years ago… Ugh!

    The heroine was ok, I didn’t shelf her as strong, but also not as weak. Her easy acceptance of the H cheapened her character.

    Not a bad book by all means, but not the usual level of Cynthia Eden.

    But the romance? Oof. Second chance romances are tricky. But I wasn't very worried because I read and liked another second chance romance by Eden. Unfortunately, this didn't work as well for me.

    Former lovers

    , an ADA, and

    , a US Marshal, reunite after the Bayou Butcher, an infamous serial killer, escapes from prison. The Butcher has vowed revenge against those who put him away, and Lauren is at the top of the list.

    . Lauren was cold and wouldn't open up to Anthony (yet opened up to a former lover who is still very present and annoying af in the story), and Anthony...well. Eden is adept at writing heroes who are obsessed - but not in a creepy way - with the heroines. Anthony, however, ventured into creepy territory. I can't say that I would have opened up to him, either. Both parties admitted that their relationship was driven by sex, and a deeper connection never shone through.

    I'm chalking it up to a rare miss by an otherwise stellar author. As I noted above, Eden is fantastic at her craft. I'll continue the series.
