This is Rainer's story and it is a doozy. Now don't let that sentence fool you. The story is told from Emalie's POV with only one chapter being told by Rainer. Although it's told from Mali's POV, you still learn quite a bit about Rainer. We met Rainer in Flawed Heart and know he's damaged in some way but don't know how. Here, you get all of the dirty secrets from Rainer's past.
Mali learns Rainer is back in town and wants to see him so she goes to his bar to reconnect. When she gets there, Rainer has no idea who she is. She thinks it's because he just forgot about her, not knowing Rainer is suffering memory loss from his past. When Rainer offers to be friends with benefits, she agrees. When she finally starts thinking of telling him who she really is and that she has real feelings for him, he crushes her.
The circumstances of Rainer's memory loss are at times unbelievable, but it doesn't distract from the story line whatsoever. Mali comes off as self conscious and at times meek and a pushover. Both have their strong points and of course Rainer is an alpha all the way. Rainer and Mail's story is an interesting one but is a must read, especially if you loved Flawed Heart!
