But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

4.5 "Living in Fear of Forgotten Memories" Stars!
Please note that this is Book 2 of the Careless Whispers series which must be read in chronological order. If you have not yet read book 1, Denial, please see my review for that title instead as the below review contains spoilers for the first book.
What a roller coaster ride! I'm absolutely loving the suspense and hot passion in the Careless Whispers series! DEMAND continues to amp up both the heat and the level of intrigue providing us with additional golden nuggets into "Ella's" forgotten memories. With only partial glimpses, however, the anxiety level as to whether Kayden and Ella were previously allies or enemies continues to build.
DEMAND picks up where Denial leaves off. Although Ella is safely tucked away in Kayden's castle, she struggles with her internal demons trying to decode her memories in the race against time to hopefully discover who she is running from. Central to this question appears to be her butterfly necklace--but alas the true meaning of that necklace also eludes her.
The only thing that is undeniable is her mutual attraction to Kayden, but the closer they become, the more fearful Ella is that the answer to her questions will permanently shatter the happiness she found in Kayden's arms. Moreover, there is a detective who is not buying their cover story and he's determined to convince Ella to cooperate with him. But as Kayden and Ella try to fight off two fronts--the detective as well as the true evil that is after Ella--they become allies with an unlikely person. But is their trust in both their new ally, as well as each other, well founded?
DEMAND brings to light some interesting revelations that definitely had my mind working overtime. Now I'm more intrigued than ever to find out the whole story. I can't wait to continue this salacious and highly intricate suspense journey in Surrender which is scheduled to be released in early January.
