There’s so much scorn and amusement in that one brief question. His breath is warm against my ear and I feel him looking down at me, enjoying that he has me

Even so, it takes every ounce of strength I have to speak. ‘I’ll never be yours.’
My Review for Midnight Hunter
So this book took me out of my comfort zone with it being something I don’t normally read. This is a history(ish) kind of book. There is a lot of information when it comes to the German Wall, West, and East Germany. But while the aftermath of the Nazi’s and the war is going on some of the people on the east are trying to get over to the west. That is where our characters meet.
Reinhardt Volker is a high ranking officer for the secret service of the east and he has done unimaginable things but he believes in what he does for himself, not for the government. But there are things he does in secret to vindicate himself that no one knows about.
When he meets Evony he finds his Valkyrie. The one person in his life that he will never let go. So he has her become his secretary and lives with him.
“If you ever get away from me, I will tear West Berlin apart looking for you. Nothing short of death would keep me from coming for you.”
The back and forth between these two is so heartbreaking for them both. The emotion is gut-wrenching that I could not put this book down. But the faith in each other also tears at your heartstrings. When they both have to option to leave each other they still stick together. That is the love you want in a love story.
I wanted to read this book just by the synopsis, but once I got into it, this is a book that will draw you in and not let go. A must read of 2018!
