Ellie Collins has always been good at hiding her emotions, but when they threaten to overwhelm her, she channels them into her work. After leaving behind the first person to capture her heart, Ellie’s heartbreak leaves her more motivated than ever before. She has one more job to take care of and nothing left to lose. 

Alex King is determined and stubborn. Unable to walk away from the woman who’s left him dazed, his life is about to get crazier than ever. Through the thick fog of deception, both Ellie and Alex have a decision to make that will change their lives forever. They can only hope that their choices are not taken from them before it’s too late. 

When the moves are made and the positions set, who will finally deliver checkmate?
Rating: ☆☆☆☆

What a conclusion to this series!  It was mind blowing as secrets and truths are revealed.  It causes Ellie to run to protect Alex and Alex to never give up on her.

This was certainly an edge of your seat and a nail biting read but it is an absolute must have read 'Stalemate' first.  Ellie's response is to protect Alex by being apart from him but Alex refuses to give up in spite of everything that he discovers about Ellie and her past.  

I found myself completely pulled in and immersed in this story of intrigue, romance and suspense.  I shouldn't like Ellie because of what she does but her strength, courage, independence and determination won me over.  Plus we get to see her softer side of her with Alex.
