An enjoyable read, could be developed more

You could say that I’ve been pining about him since he first showed up. Well, other than Joseph the assassin. I wanted to know what his story was, how he struggled and could survive as a better person. Not just his addiction story, but also how he dealt with the aftermath of his captivity. I was ready for “dark” book, yet enlightening and encouraging. However, although this was one good fully enjoyable book, I didn’t get what I hope for. There was no real struggling to be seen. It all had been said and done, and now just look at the future. It’s good, don’t stick in the past, look up to the future and so on, but I felt this book was so light in terms of issues it should adhere. I wanted to know how he could survive and live life normally. I have an ex-addict friend and I’ve been through some traumatic event (not as traumatic as being captive in enemy’s hand, mind you), so I know how hard it is to face live sometimes.
I happened to remember that this problem (for me, at least) also exist in the first book (Jacob) with the heroine. There was like nothing really bad happened to her, yet it did. I chalked it up as she’s an extremely strong heroine. After this book though, I think Ms. Michaels was shy to really delve in heavy emotional baggage related to post traumatic events.
Again, I still think this was an enjoyable book, thus the four stars. It’s really not a hardship to read this through. I just had a problem with something that I don’t really have a right. It’s really an author right for which part of the story was being told.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated nor required to write positive reviews.
