Diane's Review ~ Escape by J.L. Drake

Escape (Blackstone, #2)Escape by J.L. Drake
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Keith and Lexi’s story…

The Blackstone crew are back and it was wonderful catching up with the military group and their families. Keith was a strong protector and stood out like most of the characters did in Honor, the first of this series. Here was the chance to dive into his past and his love… Lexi was his high school sweetheart and one decision made her turn her back on him and their relationship. When they met years later, he had to think fast. He loved his family and Lexi, the one that got away. Using flashbacks, their story, and the up and down truth about what happened between them, was laid out with heart. And hope.

This story had me so torn. A tense plot and a complicated path for love were strong pluses to this read. I loved the fight for right that the Blackstone group had and Keith embodied that ethic. He adored Lexi, his family, and put himself out there again and again to fix all that was broken. Lexi was the weak link to their romance though and that colored my appreciation though it hasn’t dampened my enthusiasm for this series one little bit…
