Loving Eva is book 2 in this author’s In The Shadows trilogy.  Therefore, you need to read book 1, Chasing Eva first.  I will tell you that while I did enjoy book 1, I liked Loving Eva more.  The characters were still just as likable and the chemistry between them did not waiver. 

Eva is still a strong, spunky, and confident heroine, but she does do some bone-headed things when it comes to her safety that I want to shake her.  Things happen in the book that could make one question Clive, but Eva trusts him. Yet, she does remain cautious.  

Clive’s character becomes more developed in this book.  I had trouble understating why in book 1 that he was practically in love with her right away just because he had his first kiss with her 15 years ago.  The author goes more in depth with their first meeting and it made much more sense as to why he fell for her so quickly.  I loved learning more about his background.  Some of it left me feeling heartbroken for him.

The secondary characters were more present in this book which I liked.  Loving Eva has a lot of suspense and intrigue.  The loose ends from book 1 are not tied up.  You still don’t know who is the one committing corporate fraud even though there are a few characters who seem more likely than others.  The threats are escalating and they are no longer just towards Eva.  This book is told predominantly from Clive’s and Eva’s POV, but there are a few short chapters from the culprit’s POV.   This book moves at a good pace and I didn’t feel that it ended as abruptly as book 1 or maybe I was just more prepared for it to just end.  It doesn’t exactly end in a cliffhanger, but the mystery is still in full force.  Book 3, Killing Eva, will be released on October 30, 2018.  

I received this book from the author and I voluntarily leave this review.
