The Bulletproof Boy by Lorretta Lost

When I read the Fireproof Girl a few weeks ago, I was quite excited about moving onto the second book in the series. Here's my review of the Bulletproof Boy.

The Bulletproof Boy

The Bulletproof boy by Loretta LostFighting his way to the top, Cole Hunter has built the successful architectural firm he dreamed of all his life. But after a recent brush with death, Cole realizes what really matters to him and shifts his priorities. He is furious with the woman he loves for abandoning him, and he is willing to give up everything--his company, his friends, his fame--just to give her a taste of her own medicine. 

But his revenge has unexpected consequences... 



------



A life-threatening journey into the Nevada desert holds many discoveries for Sophie, including an emotional reunion. 
At twenty-seven, she is given the opportunity to meet her biological family for the first time. But an innocent woman has been killed by the same monster who shot her brother, and she feels compelled to help bring her justice. For the first time, Sophie is feeling torn between her separate lives, but when an old enemy gets dangerously close to finding her, no identity or location might be safe any longer...



My Review

Having read the fireproof girl, I had more of an idea what to expect this time around. Although Sophie has been reunited with Cole, they still both face a lot of questions. Who has been trying to kill him? Will Sophie finally get away from the fear and shadow that Benjamin has cast over her life, will Sophie get answers about her family and what happened.

Now that Sophie and Cole have been reunited, they both want to stay together. Cole finds out why Sophie left in the first place and they begin to rebuild their life together. Although they clearly belong together, they are still both a little uncertain how to go about that. 

I really enjoyed this installment. I wasn't completely convinced by the reason that we were given for Cole having been targeted, but I don't think that it detracted from the story overall. Cole and Sophie still have many things to address and questions to have answered. The book is fast paced and keeps you gripped as the story-line unfolds. 

There is still a lot going on in this book and clearly far more to come. This book is left on a bit of a cliffhanger, although it does work in a story as it's own right. I think that it would be better read as part of the series rather than on it's own. I'm really looking forward to the third book in the series.
