Her elusive past didn't worry me,
Her heartbreaking scars never made me cringe,
And her haunting demons only made me a stronger man.
But the day Blake Martin was stolen from me,
I was scared to death.
Prepared to do anything necessary to get her back,
Little did I know it just might cost me my life.
My name is Madden Decker, and this is my story.
Five Star Review by Ashley
I have been waiting for this book since the heart stopping conclusion to Translucent. And yes, you have to read the first book or you will be completely lost. Well, thank you Erin Noelle, because this was well worth the wait. Transparent gave me so much more than I thought I wanted. There was drama, sexiness and an all consuming intensity that had me flying through the pages.
Thankfully, this picks up right where Translucent leaves off. I was shocked right from the start at whodunit but the tale gets even more twisted from there. If I thought I loved Blake before, then I fell completely head over feet for her in this book. Her courage and bravery were out in full force. She knew what she was up against and she wasn't going down without a fight. But she also didn't shut down the good and kind side of herself either. Her loving spirit is evident in the relationship she forms with Raze. Oh that Raze- he was the atypical bad guy and I couldn't help but like him. Yes he was broody, brash and aggressive but he was also thoughtful and, surprisingly, compassionate. And in the end proved just how good a bad guy can be.
Now I can't leave out Madden. That man loves fiercely and with everything he has. I felt his devastation and bewilderment when he realized just how deep this thing with Blake went and just what he was up against. I mean wow- how he literally put himself on the line to try and get some answers and his woman back left me breathless. I loved his fearlessness and willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice for the woman he loves. Though his relationship with his brother, Easton, was struggling, they found a way to see past their differences to try and find a way out of the mess. All their scheming paid off in a big way! Those stolen moments just melted my heart and gave me the hope for the happy ending that Blake and Madden so richly deserved.
In true Erin Noelle fashion, there was an unexpected twist that changed the course of everything. I couldn't read as fast as I wanted to to see how it would all play out.The final showdown had my heart pounding. I was there, breathless and nervous with anticipation and then with my jaw on the floor. Explosive is putting it mildly. Transparent took me to another world where down is up and back is sideways yet somehow it all works. And that ending it was such a brilliantly and perfectly fitting ending to Blake and Madden's story.
Sometimes you reach a point where you just canât take any more â a breaking point, some call it.
The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didnât just break, it exploded like a full magazineâs worth of hollow points firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47.
I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave.
Now, Iâm a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira, and that was my story.
