Book Review - Safe at Last by Maya Banks

Safe at Last 
(Slow Burn, #3)
By Maya Banks

They say young love doesn’t last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his “Gracie”—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.

Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.

Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He’ll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they’ll never be torn apart again.

My Review:

 I'm new to this series and Maya Banks, I'm glad I was pointed in her direction. ^_^

A high school love like no other, torn apart by a horrific event. Neither truly knowing the truth of what happened. After 12 years of searching for the love of his life Zack has decided to move on and try to forget. With his workmates on an interview for their next job, who does he happen to run into, Gracie, except he doesn't expect the reaction he gets.
 Gracie, completely shocked and petrified of seeing Zack again after all this time and after what happened, puts a huge spanner in the works. An old ghost come back to haunt and destroy her.
 12 long years there's a lot to be resolved and secrets to be revealed.

 I did feel the story started off a little slow and conversations got repetitive at times, other than those little things, I loved it!
The main characters in this story went through so much emotional turmoil, you felt their pain and cried along with them. I could feel the undying love Zack felt for Gracie. I completely understood it, I married my high school sweetheart and we're still going strong after 18yrs. I also felt Gracie's fear every time she saw Zack or even thought about the past.

If you love second chance romances than I recommend this one. It has the emotion, a strong yet heartbroken Alpha and some kickass secondary characters.

**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review**
