Remedy, #2

She kept everyone from harm, except herself…

Raielle’s life was shrouded in secrets. Her power was a secret and so was her past. When she came to Fort Upton, everything changed. She discovered her family, and she found the boy who would own her heart forever. But it couldn’t last. Knowing so little about her power nearly destroyed her. She had to leave and break both their hearts.

Now she’s back in California, and she doesn’t have to hide who she is anymore. But there is no relief in that because she’s drowning in regret. She knew it would take a miracle or a sin to save her, and there was no miracle. Her survival came at too high a price. She found her father, but she can’t go back to Lucas until she finds redemption.

She saved him. Then she left him… 

She came out of nowhere and changed him forever, then she disappeared and left him reeling. Her whole life, she never had anyone who really loved her. Until him. Did she think he wouldn’t come for her? Did she believe she wasn’t worth it? 

Lucas leaves everything behind to follow Raielle. When he finds her, she’s a pale shadow of the girl he remembers. Her power is betraying her and so are the people around her, but one thing hasn’t changed. She selflessly wants to save the world, and he just wants to save her. 

With more secrets to uncover and dark truths to face, Raielle and Lucas must make sacrifices for each other. But in the end, will those sacrifices bring them closer together or tear them apart? When he’s forced to make the ultimate sacrifice, will she turn her back on everything she believes in to save him again?

~ This book is intended for mature readers due to sexual situations and strong language.~

Keep You from Harm (Remedy, #1)

To Have and to Harm (Remedy, #2)

The Way I See It
I fell in love with Raielle and Lucas in the first Remedy series and I must say the love runs deep. Ms Doxer does an amazing job of keeping the reader engaged. The level of mystery was astonishingly well devised. What I mean by that is I knew stuff was going to happen and secrets were going to be revealed and every single execution was perfect! I want to say there will be more and I cant wait to see what happens next but everything so far seems to be okay. This book does not suffer a slump at all. Everything that happens in Remedy #2 is intense and well developed. I’ve come to be a huge fan of Doxer’s writing and regardless of what she releases I will be following closely. 

T-omorrow, was never a promise Raielle had to leave Lucas she loved him to much to stay.
O-nly, Lucas is a fighter he will never give up on Raielle even if it means turning his life upside down he knows where he belongs. By her side.

H-ope, turning to the only person left in the world who can help her is not an easy task, because he is the same man who abandoned her to begin with.
A-lone, all of her life Raielle has felt different but now she finds herself surrounded by people with the same abilities as her. 
V-ice, having another half brother should be happy news for her but he is a vile hurtful being. Shane enjoys hurting Ray too much. His despise goes beyond childhood trauma. 
E-scape, Ray has made a friend since arriving in a new town knowing her new found family is shaky at best Raielle finds the need to get away.

A-pollo, sent to take care of Ray he has been watching over her most of her life. When the betrayal comes it cuts deep. 
N-ews, Ray has a shaky relationship with her father. Finding a friend Grant will take Raielle to someone who can give her answers. 
D-etermination, Grant knows in his heart he wants Raielle they are alike. Ray has given her heart to Lucas but Grant will always be there to take care of her and protect her. 

T-ogether, the thought of being apart is unfathomable Lucas and Ray are prepared to fight whatever evil may be in their way. 
O-pportunity, destroying evil should come easily but Grant and Lucas fear for Raielle they will devise an alternate solution.

H-elp, trapped in an impossible situation Raielle will have to tap into herself to find the answer that no one thought was possible. 
A-gainst, Ray has been presented with her destiny but none of it is what she wants. Taking control of her life Ray makes the commitment to love and live happily.
R-ealization, Raielle’s ability to help is a part of her core. Turning away from it completely, is impossible with Lucas’ help she will figure out a way to balance the two. 
M-istakes, life hasn’t been easy for Ray she is tired of letting the past haunt her. She knows who she is and will embrace her gift. Prepared for what the future holds.

So! No cliffhanger ending breath easy y’all. I enjoyed learning more about Ray’s abilities and watching her character grow was great. From the first page we are taken through twists and turns. Ups and downs and true heartache along with crushing betrayals. Okay so I know Ray is generally pretty happy by the end but I feel as though a part of her is missing. She can be so much more and I want her to embrace it. This has been a GREAT read I highly highly recommend it. 

My Fav’s 

She goes through some pretty big changes. She is a victim of really awful circumstances and those she trusts deeply are the ones who want to hurt her the most. Ray’s ability to love and not hold grudges are truly admirable. Ya she TOTALLY embraces her power and its beyond imaginable. Now all I want is for her to accept her destiny…fingers crossed?

UM YEA super sexy knows what he wants, will not take substitutions, and he's an arrogant arse about it. Being with Ray is something that has lodged into his soul he cannot give up on their love being together through everything is the only thing that makes sense. 

My Rating

4.5 Phone Message, Road Trip, CPR, UCLA, Donut Delivery, New Friend, Lost Love, Forged Alliance, Outcasted Guidance, Bloodline History, Gunshots, Stolen Gift, Determined Friend, Heart, Healing, Stealing, Running, Finding Happiness Love filled stars. I hope this isn’t the end bit if it is Ray is happy and in love. I most absolutely recommend this series!!!
